New owner here. Just picked up Cornflower Blue SE and I love it. I need some help and I'm hoping somebody has experience with the Saris Bones EX trunk bike rack.
From what I've seen it suppose to work with Taos but it requires Saris Hutch Huggers and I would need to make sure not to use rear wipers.
Another option would be just to get a hitch from UHaul with install for about $350 plus a basic rack.
Any suggestions, ideas are welcome.

I don't see the value in a hatch mounted rack for the taos. It might be hard to controll all the automatic activation of the rear wiper. You also can't open the gate with bikes mounted and if you can open the gate with only rack installed, will cause early failure of struts because of extra weight.

I got the draw tight hitch and use a hitch rack
