Been asked a few times about using a hitch mounted bike carrier. Well here’s a video of loading & unloading my VanVan. This is an inexpensive carrier from Walmart. I added the mower wheels to make it easy to move around when it’s not mounted. When strapped down the bike is very stable, thousands of miles in use with zero issues. For me it’s easier than loading in the bed, also can use a car or SUV as long as it has a hitch.
