Solid Built and Sturdy Enough
This is my third Thule rack, the other two being a receiver hitch type used on an SUV and a roof rack. I wanted something moderately heavy duty to get my bikes to the bike trail without having to worry about dropping them in the road. This rack is solidly built and mounts like every other trunk rack, but I wouldn't trust it for long trips, at least not without stopping and checking it frequently to ensure the straps remain tight. That being said, I think the rack provides good value.
My second Thule hitch mount bike rack
This is to replace my 10 year old Parkway. Need the swing function but am not comfortable with the Apex hitch function. I need something that is simple and last long. So far I have no complaint. Great quality just like any other Thule product. I also own its Force box and roof top ski rack. All of them are very solid.
