I've had this rack for since 2002 - has worked well for carrying bikes whether towing my +2000-lbs popup camper or not. I've recommended it to friends, and would buy it again.

Don't use the swing-down feature often, as it's pretty heavy if bikes are loaded. The v-cradles for the bikes don't work as well for the oval tubes on some bikes - especially for really "tall" top tubes. I bought a "cheater" tube for adapting troublesome bikes (ladies frame, etc.) to fit the rack.

The three screws to fasten the top plate are a little tedious, but I can clamp it as tight as I want, can accomodate top tubes of varous diameters (the top plate flexes), and I have never seen them loosen even after several hours of highway driving.

Re: earlier comments on chains: I tow with a minivan (towing package including load-leveling). I had to get safety chain extensions so I could tow my popup camper. To kee the chains off the road, I use a bungee cord from the crossing point to the trailer tongue.

This bike rack worked great driving hundreds of miles to the Mountains. It held the bikes firmly. We had the SUV packed so tight I could not see out the back window. But after stopping several times, to double-check things, it was quite evident the bikes were safely and firmly in place. Also like the ability to be able to tow a small trailer or camper behind this. It does have limitations on what you can tow from this, which would be lower than what you could tow directly from your vehicle. Another option might be, depending on your local laws and what else you tow, could be to put this bike rack on the back of what you tow. Based on the solid performance and versatility, this gets the highest rating. However, there are a few things to consider. For security, in other words to prevent your bikes from being stolen, there are a few things to be aware of. You will need a locking hitch pin, where this goes into your vehicle hitch. You will also need a padlock to lock the plates together, since without this, someone could just unscrew the top plate and take all your bikes. Also, it should be noted that the bent bar which holds the bikes up where it meets the bar coming out of the vehicle hitch simply bolts in place. Therefore, someone could theoretically just undo two bolts and take off with all your bikes. You would be left with the steel bar coming out of your hitch. The thief would then have your bikes and the bent bar, though padlocked, they could take this somewhere and cut/drill your padlock. If you are simply stopping to get a bite to eat and park in a visible place, this becomes a less likely scenario, however, if you are say stopping and staying at a hotel overnight, this is something to think about.Read more ›

Just returned from a 1200 mile trip using Swagman to haul our bikes and pull a pop up camper. Functioned flawlessly. Held bikes securely. Hauled the trailer firmly and quietly. As with any multiple purpose tool there are compromises. It's a little inconvenient to hook up safety chains and trailer lights with bikes on. OR . . . a little clumsy to load the bikes after the trailer/lights/chains are connected. However, considering the cost and the multipurpose nature I couldn't be more pleased.

We really liked that this rack locked to the car, and locked the bikes. However, the pivot lock that allows it to swing down so you can get into the back of the minivan/SUV broke, so it no longer swings down. We've only had it a year or so. Also, the main reason we bought this was to carry 4 bikes and then pull the tent trailer from that, and the design is all wrong. It's too long. We tried to pull our light tent trailer, and unless you're a monster truck (we've got a minivan), the safety chains don't have enough slack and got ripped off when driving--there's not enough arch available under the car for the chain, due to the length of the chain needed... (maybe if they had welded loops for the safety chain to the end of the extended hitch [if that's legal])...

Easy to assemble, and sturdy. the hitch pin provided is good in that it is threaded and the carrier is threaded as well. tightening is accomplished by the end of the hitch pin, but the tiny pin provided is pathetic. I ordered the swagman locking pin also, luckily, and the locking part of the pin - the cap- fits over the standard one, making it locking as well as being able to be tightened. I cannot imagine what would happen if the standard pin loosens on the road with nothing more than the tiny clip provided to retain it.
Over all good, but order the locking pin too, you'll need it.

Options are limited when looking for a 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack that will also allow for towing. With trailer chain/electrical extensions, this model works well for towing small trailers or a boat.

A bike shop told me the manufacturer claims 300 lbs. tongue weight and 3000 lbs. towing capacity. Haven't attempted that much, probably won't ever need to. (Ended up purchasing through Amazon because it was $60 cheaper!)

Very solid and sturdy. Just returned from 3000 mile trip. No problems. I did add a couple of ratchet tie downs just for my own sake to help with slight sway, but they really aren't necessary.

Note of caution. Design of rack does not work for oval bike frames.
