I finally opened ours and yes, this is the older version. It does not have the quick pin to remove it from the vehicle. Not sure if we're going to keep it now, since we plan to take it on and off our vehicle.
I got one at $199 and it's not the same as the one sell on Amazon right now, so there's this big bolt to lock it on the vehicle, which you'll have to screw it down. It's not that hard, but where to put the whole rack after taking it down is a problem for me. Just like you, I don't want to put it up there all the time because I really don't use it that much.

Yup.. back to Costco it went. This version is missing the quick release to swing out, instead it has a pin that's not held in place by anything. Having to wrench the bolt on and off each time we wanted to use the rack was a bit of a pain.. the newer version has a safety pin and speed knob, instead of the zip strips it has rubber tie downs for each bike. Overall was an OK bike rack, but since it would have needed to stay on the car, it completely blocked the license plate and 1/2 of the backup camera's field of view.

I found a few at our costco (Lexington, KY) tonight. I don't think I have ever seen them there before, but there were 3 or 4 on the shelf, plus a display, at $149. I picked one up and will decide if I want to keep it. I already have a platform style rack that I love, but you can't open the hatch with it in place. Plus it's only for 2 bikes.

I may try to resell it on craigslist just to see what I can get.
