I used Saris bones on numerous cars but not yet on the Tarraco. Years ago I had a very sturdy Thule 2 bike carrier. Used it on my Passat but since selling the car it hasn't been suitable for any of my cars.... until the Tarraco! (glad I kept the thule albeit its been sitting gathering dust for 11 years!)
With a spend of £20 on a new fitting kit, I can once again re-use the Thule.
The benefit of this Thule it is a clamp on deisgn and is rock solid. No nylon tie down straps needed.
I have the 9106 and I like that the wheels actually sit in a tray to hold the bike. There is also a 9104, which is a frame mounting but can take 3 bikes.
Thule 9115 is the fitting kit (43cm straps) to custom fit the 9106 carrier to the Tarraco.
Lots of places sell them, just Google it.
If you goto the Thule site and go through the options, it'll recommend a 9106 with 9115 fitting kit.
I had a look at the Tarraco and although the top looks like a spoiler, it is actually part of the metal tailgate (as it was on the Passat). So unless you have one of the FR trims, which do have an additional spoiler on top, you shouldn't have a problem with damage.
