I need a 5 bike rack hitch mount for a toyota sienna minivan. What is the difference between the Thule Vertex and Apex bike racks - other than $100?

The Apex is basically an upgraded version of the Vertex. The arms can fold down as well as the rack when it isn't loaded, and it's much easier to install. It also has their road dampening technology which reduces the shake and vibrations that the bikes feel while you're driving. It also has a lock system built into the rack that the Vertex does not.
