We bought to haul camping gear for a trip to Florida in August. Reasonable delivery time. Very good quality and assembled easily for just one person doing the assembly. Looking forward to using your product for a long time !!

5 Stars Best value around

Kyle from KS wrote (March 10, 2016):

For the money, there is not a better product out there-the product is made of quality metals with precise welds and machining. When one assembles this product you realize the importance of accurate planning!!!! Good quality product that I don't think you could even build it for this price, and if so-you wouldn't have the quality given here!!!! Obviously you aren't going to haul a ton of weight on this carrier-but really, is any hitch mount carrier designed for that. Great product in my eyes.

5 Stars great product so far.

I bought this for my inflatable boat and motor. It does the job, not heavy for me, and easy to assemble.

5 Stars Well built...excellent price!

Darren from KS wrote (March 02, 2016):

Very well built cargo carrier..I build most of my own stuff from scratch, but the price made me try this one. I am impressed with the build quality and will work great for its intended purpose. You won't go wrong with this carrier, excellent overall...would buy again!

I recently went on a trip around the state and the carrier worked great for the extra bit of space for coolers. Left us room in the car for people instead of gear. Was easy to attach to the car and easy to remove. Very sturdy item.

5 Stars Awesome Hitch Rack

James from UT wrote (August 15, 2015):

I was in need of some extra cargo space outside my car and this rack did the job and some. I didn't pay close attention when I ordered, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found it carried 500 lbs. I have a cabin in Nevada and cart a lot of heavy equipment, to include wood planes and router tables, and this thing had those puppies strapped in safe and sound and they always get there in great condition. A great quality product for a great price, I recommend this to anyone looking for that extra space they need outside their vehicle. ------James

Like the product. Sturdy and easy to assemble. Shipped quickly. Only problem...pre-drilled holes on center cross- supports did not line up correctly. We had to drill new ones.

Like our new luggage rack, but pre-drilled holes in the middle cross supports do not line up correctly. We had to drill new ones. Great product for the price. Shipped very quickly.

Received in 3 days from day of purchase. Easy to assemble. Diagram is basic, but so is the installation process. Seems to be very strong and durable. Very happy with the product and price.

5 Stars Well made and easy to asssemble and install

Larry from IN wrote (April 15, 2015):

Great quality. I am well satisfied with purchase. Would recommend to anyone.

4 Stars Good price could use better directions

Mike from UT wrote (April 09, 2015):

It came fast and was forward to assemble. Good think, since the directions and diagram are not in great detail. A few more directions and a more detailed diagram would have been nice. The blow out with washers, bolts and locking washers could have been a bit more detailed. Installed by myself in about 10 min. Sitting on the car and ready to be used.
