This is hands down the sturdiest bike rack I've used. After many years hoisting my rides up on top of the car, I "splurged" on this rear hitch rack. My back is sad I waited this long. Super easy install, secures nicely to the hitch receiver and stays put. Bikes are a synch to rack up or take down. Only negative, and it's minor, is that I use my trunk frequently and have to lower the rack to access the hatch. But any rear hitch rack would have the same thing going on. This one collapses up against the trunk when not in use, and can be supplemented with an additional 2 rack extension for hauling around your friends! if you have a few bucks to invest in a good rack, pick this one!!
