This thing is really nice and seems to be very well constructed. I really like the fact that it will fit on 2" and 1 1/4" receivers, because I have a 2 on my jeep and an 1 1/4 on my versa.

Got this bike rack at a great price plus it is a solid made piece of equipment. My complaints are that it comes with a bolt to lock the bike carrier to the tow hitch and that mountain bikes are very difficult to load on the positions closest to my Jeep. Fortunately today I only had to carry my mountain bike so I put on first position. For the price of this rack Thule should have included a locking hitch pin and should have made the arms on the rack closer together so all mountain bikes fit.

The 9030 is GREAT...But...just be aware you must use the included "bolt" to tighten the rack to the hitch receiver. No pin, just bolt. The bolt keeps the rack from swaying side-to-side. A necessary evil, I guess. Overall the rack is sturdy. I have yet to put 5 bikes on, but I believe it can handle it.

Good stable bike rack at an affordable price. The rack does not stick out too far from the back of my rig, and the pivot drop is great for getting into the back. Smaller triangle frames are a tight fit, and you will likely pinch a finger or two if they go further back. I have fit three adult MTB quite comfortably every other rung, but 5 ... would be pretty mashed in - if they fit at all (Road bikes no problem). Not for DH bikes.

The Thule Vertex Bike Rack works exceptionally well. It's very sturdy. It holds the bikes without them sliding around. The ability to fold down the rack to get into the back of my vehicle is a real advantage over other bike racks.

Easy installation. This bike rack is very sturdy and quality is awesome. Looks like I will be using this for a very long time. Fold down feature is a plus when I need to open the rear door. Great product and fit.
