Lack of Info &/or not enough fit adjustments

Great concept. However, no info indicating the rack doesn't fit the tailgate of my 2015 Dodge 2500 Ram. The rack doesn't fit due to lack of adjustments on fit for tailgates with a "lip" at the top.

Nice well made bike rack that I bought to put on pickup truck tailgate so RV travel trailer wouldn't have to carry bikes. Many bike racks that mount on trailer bumpers bounce too much and are not recommended for that use, lMany have even broken off due to extreme metal fatigue from bouncing. Only problem with this rack is it may not allow bed cover too close all the way (2010 F-150, ford option folding top cover vinyl). Top pipes too thick.

perfect fit on truck

fits on my tundra nicely and very good quality........the only problem is that I have a bike that is not shaped like normal bike.......so im having to make some adjustments on how to load it on the rack......but for the normal bike its absolutely fantastic.

Love the rack, and have already used it to make a 250 mile round-trip from our valley city to the coast (specifically, Ventura). The rack is terrific. Both my wife's and my cruisers fit on the rack, though we couldn't use the rubber tie downs to secure the bikes because frames are too wide. Like anything else, you find a way. Other than that, no problem. Surf's up with this tailgate bike rack.

The Tail-Gator arrived quickly and was easy to install. Hanging two bikes on it is a different story. The bikes I have weren't easy to hang on it. The pedal of one was sticking into the spokes of the other, and the bike tires obstruct the tail lights on both sides of my small truck. Maybe great for large trucks, but not my Toyota Tacoma.

Great product

This bike rack is great if you don't have a tow hitch. Now that I've put it on and off a few times it takes me only a few minutes to install. My only complaint is that it is not compatible with my soft tonnueau cover...I can't close it when I have the bike rack on. Also, the straps could be more heavy duty. I don't think they will last more than a couple years with regular use. Other than it's a convenient product and priced well.

Great addition- keeps trailer hitch position open for other uses

The Tail-Gator is very easy to use and works great. Even the guys at the bike shop liked it and had nothing comparable to sell me other than hitch type racks so I went with it. I intend to add a hitch to my 2012 Tacoma so this allows me to bring bikes on the Tail-Gator and add a trailer to pull a camper,jet ski or motorcycle trailer as well in the future. Folds up easy and stores in the truck bed under my cover.The Rep was really nice to work with. I will be calling again soon. Hope that helps.

Works just fine! I use it for a boy's bike and a girl's bike and had no problem securing them. The rack also attaches securely to the tailgate and goes on easy enough. I use extra bungi cords just to be safe and I put towels between the rack and the truck to prevent scratching but probably don't really need to. If you don't have a trailer hitch, this is the way to go.

This bike rack is perfect for my situation. I just used it to go camping and it fits beautifully between my truck and pop up camper. The bike was very stable and it worked great.
