This is my first hitch mounted rack but my fourth bike rack purchase. I researched many of the racks before purchasing this one but ultimately, as an occasional rider, price was the deciding factor. If you are looking for a convenient, easy-on, easy-off rack, this isn't the one for you.

PROS:
- Solid construction
- Relatively lighter weight than other 4 bike hitch racks
- Tilts 45 degrees at the base to allow for hatch access
- Easy rubber strap mechanism allows for simple and secure bike placement/removal
- Allows for both 2" and 1.25" hitch configurations with included adapter
- "Anti-wobble device" is a wingnut-type screw that works well; stable at speed

CONS:
- Lacks "quick release." Excessive use of locking pins to secure all bolts for all moving parts. The pins add time to the process, can sometimes pinch your fingers, yet they are essential to hold the bolts in place. There is no obvious place to put these pins when you are working the rack.
- Threaded bolt requires basic tools for hitch install (but it is quite secure)
- Tilting the rack 45 degrees is a four step process: 1) remove the pin, 2) pull the retaining bolt, 3) lift another locking bolt, 4) pull the rack while lifting the locking bolt.
- When tilting the rack it is clear one portion of the rack is slightly oversized and causes quite a bit of friction between pieces. This makes the tilting action graceful, but there is definite metal-on-metal scraping when the rack is tilted or placed back in position.
- No ability to add an integrated bike lock to the rack

SUMMARY:

The Advantage SportsRack TiltAWAY Bike Rack is an average 4 bike, hitch-mounted rack. Out of the box, the assembly process took about 15 minutes.

Pros:

Amazon's prices are incredible!!! I couldn't find a 4 bike, bike rack, like this one, cheaper any place else.

I looked at the Allen 4 bike rack compatible to this one in a sporting goods store, although I did consider buying the Allen one b/c it was about $20.00 cheaper, but, this one is constructed and designed much better, and it is by far worth the extra $20.00.

The bike frame rubber brackets/holders and the thick rubber bands are both adjustable. The holders are adjustable left & right and forward & backwards, all you have to do is losen the allen screw on each brackets.

The brackets also comes w/groves so that the brake and other cables will sit properly so as not to scratch the bike frame. This design is usually used on the more expensive brand of bike racks.

The arms folds down when not in use and the frame tilts away from the rear hatch door for easy access to the cargo area of my SUV. These two features were the most important factors for my decision to purchase this bike rack.

The metal frame and the brackets appears to be of sturdy design and quality. It also comes w/two red reflectors at the end of the carry arms.

On the bottom of the rack between the frame and the hitch mount there is a metal bar that is welded diagnally as a support bar. You can use the gab/space as a loop for a cable lock to go through it to lock your bikes. You can also use that loop to lock the bike rack to the loops on the hitch with a cable lock.

Amazon was amazing from the order process to delivery. I ordered mine on Monday and rec'd it on Thursday. It was shiped from their PA warehouse and it was delivered to my NY residence w/in 3 days. Rec'd it just in time for the wkend.

I bought both this Hieninger 3013 rack and a Curt Manufacturing 13509 Class III Receiver from Amazon. The Curt receiver was easy to fit under the RAV4 with the help of a couple of axle stands and a friend- 15 minutes in total.
Combined, the receiver and rack place my 4 bikes safely away from the spare tyre hump on the rear door of the RAV4 body.
However the receiver is slightly over 2 inch and the 2 inch adapter on the rack is less than 2 inch. I'm a handy guy and so I can do something to improve the fit between the receiver and rack. Until then the darn thing wobbles left and right forward and back. Instead of having a normal pin to fix the rack to the receiver the rack has a proprietary screw bolt pin and I DO NOT LIKE IT! I wish they'd stuck to the standard pin.

The plastic fittings for the bikes slide on the arms. I guess I ought to say it's adjustable because it is and with the 4 very different bikes I have to put on here that is useful. However then you need to use bungee straps to stop all the bikes sliding forward or backwards - not a problem because I'm a belt and suspenders sort of guy.

I don't have the problem other people seem to have with the other pins for lowering the rack to open the rear door door. Take out the 2 pins pull up a handle and lower the rack. I secured the pins with some flexible wire so I don't have to hold on to them.
For the RAV4 when you lower the rack you have an open door space 22 inch wide- you cannot open the door all the way. But anyway once you've got the bikes off it's easier to unscrew the one pin through the receiver and take the rack off- not a big deal for me.
I just spoke with a guy who had the perfect 4 bike rack for an SUV that has a side hinged door.
