    <p>The only disappointment I have is that due to the location of the spare tire, I cannot place the 2nd hole of the arm into the hitch that U-Haul installed on my Ford Transit Connect. This means that the stowaway arm will have to stick out further from the body of my car than I desired.</p>

    I'm very please with our swing away cargo rack. We had a flimsy aluminum hitch mount rack that sagged under a small load. The swing away design is much more convenient that the new rack is strong and solid. The included anti-rattle clamp works well. The reflective decals aren't very bright, so I installed better reflectors. Also, there are instructions for the rack and for the mount, but not for installing the rack on the mount. The hardware included eight bolts, but there are only four holes that align on the rack. Overall, very pleased with the rack.

    I purchased this with a focus on the convenience, and hoped it would be of sufficient quality. Wow. I cannot believe how outstanding the fit and finish are. Every single component - including the washers, the bolts and the locking nuts are top-notch. We are extremely pleased and this makes a fantastic addition to our truck. So glad we bought this!

    Well built, but way too heavy

    Cons:
    • Very Heavy

    <p>Incredibly well built, but way too heavy if you are planning on taking this on and off frequently. I can see why they left the weight off the product description. When I got the shipping notice, I didn't believe that it was 85lbs. </p><p>Since it requires the hitch tightener to install, it also won't be a quick on and off. Since the male part of the assembly is so heavy, it will also be very difficult to store because of the imbalanced weight.</p><p>It was pretty easy to install, but you would have thought for the price, they would have included a print out of instructions.</p><p>This will be a great product for the right use. I am going to love it for tailgating, but it's not going to be fun to attach, take it off, and store it.</p>

    Very good quality product, solid steel. Works just like it is supposed to, kind of a pain getting the bolt through the attachment of the swing arm and the hitch arm. If the manufacture can do that extra labor before shipping, I would have given 5 stars on installation
