I have the Rigd, 1up combo also...as in the video I would not recommend that rack unless you do something to address the bouncing. Even around town in my commuter car I run an old inner tube tied to the seatpost and tied to the car to take the bounce out. Offroad the bounce is terrible...I mean really terrible. The combo of the tire rack, the extension, the 1up plus all the play in the 1up folding mechanism adds up. I don't need a back seat so I built made a way to carry my bike in the back seat area (I have a Goosegear drawer setup too). I also appreciate my bike not getting covered in road grime (even in good weather).

I'm not so sure a 1up style (the way the bike is held) is the most solid rack system...several companies make use the 1up style...just my $.02.

Your 1up has play in it? Doesn’t sound right to me. Ours is incredibly solid.
