I received the hitch sooner than expected. No packing issues were encountered. The setup was easy due to the light weight and clear instructions. It is very sturdy and strong. Almost no vibration moments while driving. I am very happy with the hitch. However, I got once with the integrated lock slot missing from the left arm of the carrier. Certainly a manufacture defect. I contacted Thule and they agreed to sent me a new one. I have not received it yet and they did not send me tracking info.

This rack came almost all the way assembled and easy to attach to my new hitch. The fact I can store it in my trunk area and take it off and on with ease is great.

I bought it for its light weight and simplistic design. That's good, however there's a part that due to bad design easily falls out, and into the shaft, making it very hard to retrieve. This made installation take WAY longer than should be. I've not taken the rack off the car yet, as its brand new, but I hope that part doesn't cause problems when I take on/off because that's the whole reason I bought a light weight rack. Also, there's a plastic cover for that same part that broke immediately.

This is just what I was looking for, something light and easy for me to handle by myself. I bought this for my granddaughter and I to be able to go places and ride. We have used it twice now and it seems to be sturdy.

That is the first thing I noticed. Secondly, assembly requires your full attention. And lastly, well constructed. It attaches to my receiver hitch in front of my pickup. I would recommend this bike rack.
