WHAT I LIKE SO FAR IS THE WAY IT LOWERS THE BIKE CLOSE TO THE GROUND FOR EASE OF LOADING AND UNLOADING THIS COMES IN HANDY AS I AM A SMALL PERSON AND NOT ABLE TO RAISE ITEMS UP VERY FAR. INSTALLATION WENT SMOOTH AND I AM GETTING USE TO THE RACK ON THE BACK OF THE SUBARU, AS IT SHOWS PARTIALLY IN REAR CAMERA. OVERALL I AM EXCITED TO GET OUT AND GO RIDING.

Looks good. Very good quality parts and components. I've had another name brand,comparably priced rack that couldn't compare to this rack. Instructions were a little lacking but if your semi mechanically inclined you should be ok.

I installed a hitch and bike rack to my van, and the bike rack install was fairly straightforward. The installation can be a little tough because it is quite heavy and the rubber straps are tough to pull/stretch. My socket wrench also was a little shallow for the installation of the top plate, so I had to get a deeper one. This all means the product is solid. While it's a little too heavy for many people to slip it on and off often, it means the rack is quite strong.

The hardest part of assembling the rack was putting on the rubber straps. You need to pull them very tight in order for them to be secure and there are 12. Otherwise, I was able to put it into the hitch and secure it on my own. I like the hitch lock and the built-in bike lock also. All you need is a key or combination padlock. We bought the dura so that we can purchase the ski/snowboard attachment come winter. We haven't tried that out yet.

We bought this rack for our 2009 Toyota Venza. Our hope was to carry 4 beach cruisers, and so far, this has not disappointed. Easy setup and installation. We loaded two bikes for a recent trip and it held well. Bikes were very secure and didn't move. The huge benefit is being able to hinge bikes out of the way to open the rear hatch. This was easy to do, and the rack maintained a secure and stable feel throughout. We are going to get years of great use out of this rack.

Idea of your bikes staying vertical while getting the unit away from vehicle lift gate is an asset. My opinion, the unit can afford to loose some weight. My wife stated that... she will never attempt to install this unit by her self. It is just too heavy for her. Also, I rather see the rack portion to be able to tilt down rather than needing to remove while it is not being used. Other than that, the unit is rock solid unit. I am happy with the unit.
