The material this bike rike is constructed from is very durable and appears to be of high quality. It is also very easy to assemble. However, there is a manufacturing error. The part of the frame that attaches to the hitch base is not cut properly, so the "tilting action" feature is not available on the bike rack I received. This is unfortunate since this is a key feature for a hitch bike rack. It allows one to access the cargo area of the SUV. I will have to return my rack if the part can't be replaced because this is a feature I thought I was going to have. If this problem is resolved, I can tell that this will be one of the best purchases I will have made in a long time and can't wait to get a lot of use out of it!
