    OK for the money

    I thought this unit was decent quality. The bumper mounts were well made and sturdy. I like the way you can remove the rack from the bumper mounts by removing two quick release pins. Because of the size of my spare tire I could not place the bumper mounts as close together as designed which made the uprights angle inward a little. This did not affect the functionality of the unit but it prevented lifting the uprights straight up if you wanted to remove them from the bumper mounts. To solve that I replaced the angled cross brace with a heavier flat steel one so I could use a wing nut on one end of the brace. Now all I have to do to remove the uprights is to remove the wing nut from one end of the cross brace. Then each upright will slide out individually. The bumper mount receivers had no way to drain rainwater so I drilled a hole in the bottom of each one. As with anything steel, where there is a scratch there will probably be a little rust, so a little can of Rustoleum will be handy. After looking at what is available, especially for fifth wheel RVs, I thought this was a good unit for the money, especially if you do not mind making a couple of small modifications.

    I have had this bike rack for about 4 years now and the only complaint that I have is that the red hold down hooks are very tight and hard to turn. It does however hold the bikes very secure . I have been all over with it, and have had no problems.

    Although I found the rack extremely easy to install, (approx. 10 mins), the rack comes packaged for use by boys bikes only. To use for girls bikes, without the bar, you must purchase additional items. I think for the price paid for the rack ALL brackets for boys or girls bikes should be included. The review indicating the need for drilling weep holes in the bottom of the brackets was 100% correct. When it rained the brackets were full of water. It needs some engineering modifications to correct the problem and customer preferences need to be addressed.
