I was searching for a strong hitch carrier both online and offline. I found a cheap one at U-haul, but it was not user-friendly. Also, my car could only fit a 1.25” hitch, so I was looking for a hitch bike rack that fit a 1.25” hitch.
My search brought me to the Thule 4-bike hitch carrier. The installation was simple. I like the permanent attachment to the hitch with a bolt. Due to the design of my hitch, I had to do over 100 partial rotations instead of complete rotations. The tool was provided by Thule. (A cylindrical wrench would be more useful in my case.)
The hitch is sturdy and easy to use. I like the lever used to fold the arms when bikes are not mounted and fold the hitch to access the rear of the vehicle. The bike rack is silent when the car is in motion. There is a ratchet strap provided to prevent the bike from swaying.
The only issue I had is I had to purchase a horizontal bar separately since both are mountain bikes that do not have a horizontal bar due to the secondary suspension.
I have used the bike rack for a month and I have had no problems. It is a great hitch bike rack for transporting multiple bikes safely over long distances. I have taken sudden turns, gone over bumps, and made sudden stops, but the bike rack never failed.
Not to mention that it was cheaper to buy on Amazon than any local retailer.
This option works really well with a fat bike. I use extra bungy cords to secure the bike, they may not been needed but why take the chance. Some reviews say the Thule straps have "let go" during transit, they seem pretty tight on the one I have but Id never trust just those anyway.
The way it swings down out the way for the rear door on our Nissan Rouge SUV is wonderful.
I haven't tried it yet with two fat bikes but I would be quite comfortable having both my Fat Bikes on this, it really sits solidly and holds the bike firmly.
The bike rack itself is a solid product. It was easy to mount and we have had no trouble mounting four adult bikes. As with every rack I have used it does require adjusting pedals and wheels to make everything fit. After one month of daily use the straps have shown no sign of failure.

First, the good. The core and frame are solid and heavy duty. It is easy to assemble and attaches snugly to a tow hitch. The mechanisms to raise and lower the bars are easy and efficient to use. It will easily hold the weight of 4 bikes (although hanging 4 adult size bikes on it would require a Tetris expert). I usually only carry two (adult mountain bikes and it works well for that). The rubber rests are solid and can be adjusted to fit various bike frames.
Now the bad and annoying parts. The straps (for holding bikes down) are a pain! They are thin, with plastic teeth and tighten down by threading through small locking boxes. To lock in place the straps must be run straight through the locking boxes. This can be difficult with wide or odd shaped bike frames. I haven't lost a bike yet but the thin straps do not have my confidence for holding up over time, elements or bumpy roads.
Second, to unlock the straps, you push down on a plastic release lever which is supposed to raise off the teeth so they can be pulled out. However, again, the straps must be straight in the boxes to release and remove. If bikes have shifted during the drive (which they always do) you have to lift and adjust the bike to straighten the strap to get it out. Also, the release lever tends to flip over when it's under pressure (like when the bike shifts en route) - this doesn't release the strap fortunately - but it gets stuck, and the release lever has to be pushed back into place. To do this, again, you are lifting and struggling with the bike to straighten the strap. Even when the straps are straight getting them out of the box can be a pain.
Im a big guy and the straps are just an annoyance but they would be a major problem for many women and anyone with a slighter build. Even for me, after a day riding, Ive left the bikes on the rack overnight rather than fight to get them off.
The heavier, thicker rubber straps on the previous model were much more efficient and easy to use. You just pulled and hooked them. They were sturdy and I never had any problems getting them on or off. Switching to this overcomplicated strap and lock box design was a bad idea.
So to wrap it up - this works ok as a bike carrier. The frame and its workings are solid. The straps will be annoying for anyone - but a big problem for many women and those with a slighter build who will struggle to get bikes connected and disconnected.
