Wel-Bilt 500-Lb. Tubular Steel Cargo Carrier
This rack was well built for the money and allows us to carry the extra things we want to on vacation easily. I built a box that is secureable that I installed on it and with it behind our RV we don't worry about things disappearing.

4 stars. Product went together with all holes lining up correctly, sturdy construction except for notes below. I would never put it's max capacity in it (500lbs) due to the very thin metal strips that hold the cargo. Several bolts stripped during carefully putting it together. I had pre-warning about stripping bolts, so i made sure to go slow and not over tighten. Several still stripped. So far they are holding and haven't had time to replace them. I put it together and haven't used it yet.

You get what you pay for
As is the common thread between all the reviews for this product, the price matches the quality, and it's a good thing I got it on sale. The sheet metal screws stripped out. some of the holes didn't line up, and parts were already showing rust. And the company sticker looks like it was put on by Stevie Wonder.

Gets the job done
I wouldn't consider this a top quality product, but it is sufficient for the occasional use it gets. If it were something I needed to use frequently I would probably opt for a bit better unit, but for the price it isn't bad.

Steel Cargo Carrier
Easy to build,the screws that came with it makes it not as rigid as you would want.Replace them later with nut & bolts if needed.I use this carrier for a large wagon that carries my tools to the job site. Work well for the price.If I like this carrier,I will sell it to a friend and upgrade,so far I think it takes the hassle of on loading and off loading 5 days a week.

Not to bad.
Simple. Not to heavy duty. Could use stronger slats.

steel cargo carrier
Easy to assemble, works for what I needed it for (generator carrier), easy to install in receiver hitch. However, I wasn't thrilled with the small sheetmetal screws that held the cross member in place. They are small screws that strip out easily. There is warning in the instructions about that problem. So I removed them and drilled all way through tubing and placed 1/4 inch bolts with nuts and washers in place of the sheetmetal screws. Now "works good, last long time"

Received this carrier, very light weight bottom support brace crossmembers. Would hate to test 500 pounds of cargo down the road with this unit. I would suggest if you want to haul anything over a couple hundred pounds pass on this one and upgrade to a real "Well Built" one. I am adding some expanded metal and welding this one together to make it work/safe. Not everyone has material and equipment around to fix something to make it work for them. You truely get what you are paying for with this unit, something real cheap.

This carrier was priced right. It was easy to assemble and will be perfect for my desired use. I can put it inside the car and then attach it after I have purchased extra items at the store. Especially good for carrying full gas cans, since I live a good distance away from a gas station with reasonable gas prices.

carrier will be used to transport bikes and accessories on camping trips. Will be hitching it to the back of my 5th wheel camper. Very strong and easy to use/ install
