The Doubledown is a good rack and does keep the bikes relatively stable. I do think that the reciever hitch pin and locking system is cumbersome. It takes a good wrench to install and uninstall each time which is not convenient. I have other receiver hitches for my trailers that can be put on and taken off with no wrench and if need they can be locked as well. I would like to see Yakima develop something along these lines. Otherwise this is a good system.

Most qualified shops can install a hich from 45 minutes to a few hours depending on the vehicle for a reasonable price. I would start by calling shops in your area for wait times and price quotes as they are quite competitve and will often try to be the lowest price to get your business.

Can you leave the bikes on the rack the Double Down or Bighorn when it is tilted forward so you can access the cargo area? Thanks Bill

Hi Bill, Yakima recommends that you remove your bikes before you tilt the rack away from your vehicle.
