Buyers Receiver Mount 4-Bike Rack - 3500-lb. Towing Capacity
Good and Bad
Assembly was very straight forward, holes lined up well and it went together relatively easy. The unit is pretty heavy duty so I am sure it will work well.
It bolted together well but when I tried to install it on my van the bike rack hit the bumper before the mounting pin holes lined up. There was a smaller hole in my hitch so I tried locking that but there was so much slop and movement I was not comfortable. I removed the lower bar and drilled 2 new holes so I could move the bike rack away from the bumber and allow the larger holes to line up in the hitch pin.
The modification worked but the connection is still very sloppy, the tube on the bike rack seems undersized and there is a lot of movement of the bike rack. I am hoping straps will stabilize it but have not tried it yet.
I like the design but it is not very friendly to newer bike designs, my son's aluminum frame will not fit so I am back looking for adapters to make it work.
For the money it is good but it seems with a little tweaking it could be better.

Great Bike Rack
The bike rack is great! It holds 4 bikes and I can tow my boat. The bikes hang very securely and I do not have to use extra bungees.
The only problem I had is with the stick-on rubber protectors. After a few uses, the rubber coating is coming off and sorta rubs on the frame.

Great Bike Rack
Bought this for the wifes 02 Yukon. It assembled easily. Took about 30 minutes. Have used is several times. Comes in very handy.

I bought the rack to use on the back of my camper. I was very satisfied with the quality and ease of assembly. My only problem was the newer bikes we have with rear suspension will not work with this rack. The bars are too short for the width of the rack. I ended up selling it to a friend who was about to purchase the same rack and I am looking for something different. However, if you have bikes with the longer center bars I would recommend this rack.

Buyers Bike Rack
I have been looking for something like this for a long time.Works great when pulling a camper or without. I would recommend to a friend.The only thing i would change is the black tack down for the rubber pads across the frame when it gets warm it gets on the bike frames very sticky stuff.

Good product, right price
I purchased this bike rack for my 06 Jeep. We were impressed with the weight and it is made well. We took it on a camping trip, and the only issue I had was the bolt for the hitch. With 2 bikes on it, it bent on a 500 mile trip. I called Buyers and they sent me another. I will be taking it on our next camping trip with a Seadoo attached soon, and have faith that there will not be any further problems.
Easy to put together as long as you actually read the directions, but I put it together, not my husband.

I Used this rack this weekend,Excellent metal with a ball hitch to connect a small trailer. Works great ,Heavy duty,wouldn't recommend towing a large trailer but great for holding the bikes securely.

Don't look at another bike rack.
I was impressed with the quality of this bike rack. Real steel, not lightweight tubing. Was real nervous about what it could do and the price of it. Took 15 minutes to put it together. Buy this one even if you don't need the hitch!
