Anyone made a Kamm back extension around a hitch mount bike rack?

Hi, Just came across this forum today and it has really got me thinking.

I'm a cyclist who uses his car primarily as an accessory for getting to bike races and mountain bike trails. I've been using a roof rack and of course noticed that it annihilates my mileage.

I've been driving a 98 Ford Escort sedan and may get a Ford Focus ZX-5 in the near future (a deal I cannot pass up).

I am seriously considering getting a hitch mount bike rack like this.

My questions is: has anyone built a kamm back style cover over one of these things and/or would it be worth it? If so any details as to design/construction would be very appreciated.

Another option of course would be to attempt to fabricate some kind of rack that would keep the bike(s) inside the car.
