Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeffv Not very good.
I don't like to leave negative reviews but PB wants to know.
I bought this one after looking at two nearby competitors stores. One of them had the same brand but a different model. This was the only rack that folds up against the vehicle if desired. So I bought it.
Assembly is required.
The craftsmanship of the parts was sub par and the unit was impossible assemble correctly. The holes that are used to bolt the two halves of the cargo deck together would not line up evenly due to careless welding.
I had to return it for a refund. Bad stuff is no value no matter the price. For ten dollars more I found a rack that was quite sufficient but does not fold up. The cargo surface is one piece, And there were only two pieces to assemble.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ejwii less then desired
Hardware loose in box, caused it to exit box at seams.
Hardware at hitch post to rack too short. Nylon on "lock nut" never engages the threads of bolts.
Two of the mounting holes for the support brackets were covered over by the rack bottom webbing material. Had to drill out these holes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BigDub Flimsy, distance from hitch not acceptable
Returned to the store, sure it will work for most but I was not happy with how flimsy it was once fully put together. The assembly is straight forward, uses a ton of bolts. Overall for my application I found this too flimsy to keep. I disassembled and returned to store for refund. I am sure this will work fine for those that simply want a place to put a cooler, or a travel bag. You get what you pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maddogrob Does what it says
Assembly was OK. Had to tweak and push a bit to get some of the holes lined up but overall went together as described. I wish it fit a little tighter in the hitch as it tends to have some more play than I would prefer. I tried wrapping some duct tape around but didn't do much. wasn't worried it was going to fall out or anything, just my preference.
Not sure if I understood the instructions clear enough in mounting to vehicle... Do you keep the swing up assembly in place when using or only install when you want the rack in the up position? I used without because it stuck out pretty far from the bumper with it on. Just added the piece when it was empty on our trip so I could drive with it in the up position. Worked great and gave us the extra space we needed. Wish I had one sooner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Af4nc Good value, folding mech. Needs a little machining
Good product, easy to install and assemble
Only problem is the folding elbow won't fold, needs machining work on the hitch arm, however you can fold it, you just have to take the bolt out, a little up handy.
I will work on that later
