Default Bike Rack on a Bay?

I currently have a tailgate bike rack on my 69 Bay, which only carries 2 bikes. I need to carry 4, so was thinking of getting a tow bar and a 4 bike rack to go on it. Has anybody done this before, and are there any issues?
I was thinking the rack and bikes will add up to about 80kg, so is a fair bit of weight on the back of my van!
Any advice greatly appreciated

Had one on ours with sports exhaust no issues and when camping use it for tent and chairs. Tbh safer than in back of bus.
