Top critical review
1.0 out of 5 starsWill not support 4 bikes

The rack is pretty easy to install. Even though it says not to be mounted on a trailer, I have it on the back of my 5th wheel with a specially constructed receiver. The rack, even with a hitch extender, does not wobble one bit which is good.
I just completed a 4 hour trip, one-way with 4 bikes on it. My full suspension mountain bike, my wife’s light street bike, my 15-year olds hard tail mountain bike and my 11 year olds smaller mountain bike. The trip was 99% on pavement and I don’t remember hitting any major bumps.
Upon arrival, the bikes had a fair bit of rub damage which is to be expected, but maybe to not this extent. The problem is to get 4 bikes or rack you really have to be a little bit of a magician and they are crammed tight, so any movement is going to give you rub damage. When I got the bikes off, one of the arms was bent down. I straightened it for the return home, and after we got home the bends were worse (see pictures).
The reviews seem pretty good for using this bike for 2 or even 3 bikes, but that’s not what I bought it for, so only one star. I don’t see any way you’re going to use this for 4 bikes unless they are for 4 kids bikes and you don’t care about damage. I’d buy this to hauls 2 bikes as with the extra space I could avoid the rub damage, but it’s not taking any more than that.
