Another popular universal bicycle racks are the roof rack cross bars. There are ones that clamp onto the sides of car roofs so as long as it's wide enough, it should be able to be installed on most vehicles. After that, different attachments can be installed for different uses besides carrying bikes. This includes ski, snowboard, kayak and even cargo carrier box transport.
If you have many vehicles or are changing cars often and want to keep the same bike rack, then a universal bicycle rack is a good choice. These models will fit the same types of vehicles, so if you don't make a big change like from a hatchback to a truck, you should be fine, however if you get a hitch model, you should be okay either way.
