5 Stars Quality product

Amy from NY wrote (September 30, 2017):

Needed something to carry coolers and bikes on back of class B motor home. This was the only product I could find to do that for a reasonable price. Well made. Wish you could use the bike rack by itself.

5 Stars Perfect

Looked for a double bike rack carrier for weeks and didn't want to spend $500+. I was very surprised from beefy packaging to the beefy welds of the construction. Very easy to assemble and worked as described.

5 Stars Folding cargo carrier with bike rack

This product extends the cargo capacity of our Class C RV. It was quite easy to assemble and install. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a folding cargo carrier.

5 Stars Built Like a Tank

James Niemann from UT wrote (February 09, 2017):

Everything about this cargo/ bike rack screams heavy duty. Yes it is all steel and heavy, but compared to the previous brand I had this one is built to last. I checked all the welds and they are high quality with smooth finish and no splatter. Looks like a powder coat paint job as it has not paint odor. The folding ability is great, I don't need to remove the cargo hauler during the week, just fold it up and don't need to worry about backing into things.

4 Stars Blue Devil Steel Basket Cargo Carrier & Hitch Bike Rack - 500 lb Capacity

Justine from AL wrote (April 04, 2016):

This was just okay. We sent it back because you can't use just the bike rack when the cargo carrier is not needed. Also there wasn't enough clearance from the cargo carrier to the back of the van. Pretty sturdy though. Just not for us.

5 Stars great quality

Allen from OR wrote (December 09, 2015):

we recently bought a smaller motorhome and needed a little extra space for things and thought this would be perfect. The quality is fantastic and was very easy to put together. The only problem we found is the bumper on our motorhome sticks out too far to fold up the cargo carrier. Not really much of a problem. Overall we are very impressed.

5 Stars Bike Carrier and rack for my RV.

Rich from WI wrote (August 20, 2015):

I was looking for extra outside cargo space for my RV to carry lawn chairs, wood, etc... I also wanted a bike rack for the kids' bikes. I found this and it took care of all the issues that I had. Unlike other combo units, this one can carry bikes and cargo at the same time. I ordered the 2 bike version as the 3 bike unit was out of stock. It was very easy to put together, and is very solid. It sits higher than I expected which is good in my case, as the RV receiver is very low to the ground. The finish on the rack is very clean, time will tell on how well it holds up. The item was shipped very quickly and I was able to get it on the RV for the next weeks camping trip. Over all I am very pleased with the rack and quick shipping that DiscountRamps provided.

4 Stars Great carrier, made well.

Mark from TX wrote (August 08, 2015):

Made well, went together without any issues. I would like to see the option to out a locking pin in hitch instead of bolt that tightens.

4 Stars So far so good....

Natalie from MT wrote (August 04, 2015):

After recently purchasing a camper van I needed outside storage for campfire wood, stove, propane, etc. as well as a way to haul bikes on occasion. After exploring different options, this 2-bike cargo rack seemed like a good solution for a reasonable price so after reading many product reviews on various retailer websites (walmart, amazon), I bought this rack. Assembly was easy, though I did have to rely mainly on common sense more than the assembly diagram. Admittedly, I was confused by the actual hitch point of the rack: the hitch pin (a bolt, in this case) was only 1" long with a locking washer and the 2" hitch had a plastic insert that, when inserted into the receiver, meant the bolt didn't go all the way through both sides of the receiver, nor would it allow me to use my own locking hitch pin. I've never seen this before so I was (and am still) baffled by it. My work-around was to pop the plastic insert loose by using a screwdriver and a hammer to pound it out, which meant it fell into the hitch and will have to remain forever as it will not come out. No problem, though, as there is not amply room to insert and use my own locking hitch pin. Other than that, the rack is solid and there are no wobbles when driving. My only complaint (and it's minor), is that it would be nice to be able to mount the bike rack backwards so when I'm not hauling cargo, the bikes could sit above the cargo basket to reduce my vehicles overall length and somewhat protect the bikes. But overall, I'm pleased.

5 Stars You have to have this vacation carrier!

Clay from FL wrote (June 13, 2015):

Going in a family bike vacation then this is the cargo bike carrier for you! Easy to assemble - about an hour and that was taking my time to spray all parts with silicon. My truck has a large lifting 'are' topper - the basket and bike carrier is set way back so that all can open without adjusting. Very heavy duty - carries cargo level and far off the ground. Took a bright orange noodle - splitting it open wrapping the bike arm to provide extra visibility. I bet you will be happy with it - ??

5 Stars Great product!

Lori from OH wrote (June 08, 2015):

The folding cargo carrier is very heavy duty, it was easy to assemble and hook up. My only problem was that I could not fold it up when not in use due to the large spare tire on my RV. So I will have to remove it each time when not in use.

5 Stars Cargo carrier / Bike Rack

Steve from MO wrote (June 05, 2015):

After waiting months for this item to come back into stock, I purchased one of the 3-bike units. It was very easy to put together, Very solid unit. The cargo rack is HUGE! It is heavy when assembled, but extremely solid. Bikes are held securely, and there is room for a truck box and other stuff. I bought this to go into the bumper hitch on the back of my trailer, and it works great. Time will tell how well the powdercoat finish holds up, but the manufacturer did a nice job so I don't expect any issues. It is a little more expensive than standard cargo carriers, but the incorporated bike rack, swing-up feature, and overall quality make it well worth the money spent.

5 Stars Fantastic Product!

Jeff from IL wrote (May 21, 2015):

My fiance and I bought this to replace a different cargo rack that we had bought a year ago, made out of aluminum that we felt was just not very sturdy. This rack is extremely sturdy, and very simple to assemble. Its also one of the few cargo rack/bike carrier combinations on the market. We hated the idea of having to sacrifice cargo carrying just to bring along the kid's bikes! I highly recommend this product.

5 Stars Great FOLDING Steel Basket Cargo Carrier & Bike Rack

Glenn from TX wrote (May 21, 2015):

We looked for a carrier and bike rack combo for less than the national debt. We found this one and couldn't be more pleased. Sturdy, easy to assemble. The best part is that even though you have to "fold" the carrier to open the back of your Jeep, it's incredibly easy AND there is ample room between the folded carrier and open back of the Jeep to hand in groceries, etc. No banged knees or skinned knuckles or strained backs from reaching over the carrier!

5 Stars Very Sturdy

Corey from IL wrote (August 14, 2014):

I wanted a hitch cargo carrier that would also carry bikes for our vacation. This was the best solution I found. The carrier came quickly. It was fairly easy to assemble with a modest amount of elbow grease. It is very sturdy and has a significant amount of capacity. I was able to install the carrier onto my hitch by myself. Unlike most carriers, it rides fairly high, almost bumper level, so there is no bottoming out. The bike extension was easy to put on the carrier and take off. I also bought the Summit Cargo bag to protect the luggage I put on the hitch carrier.
