Good, Solid Product

"Good product, solidly built. Holds bikes well and cargo too. It sticks out behind the vehicle a bit farther than other cargo-only models to accomodate handlebars, but not so far to be a problem. I added reflective tape to increase visibility as it only comes with two fairly small, plastic refectors. Overall a good purchase."

Easy to Assemble Looks Good

"One bolt was missing, had to go get one. Otherwise it was easy to assemble. I have not used it yet. Should be able to take my bicycles on the next trip. Should also be able to pick up a few bails of pine straw.
Seems good.

Sturdy bike rack

July 2, 2014
By mscz01
from Forida
"I bought this bike rack after I saw a friend had this particular model and it worked great. Not to hard to set up probably took 1.5 hours. Worked great, held 4 bikes in place probably didn't have to use extra tie down straps but I like to make sure its nice and secure. Definitely recommend to a friend."

Built like a Battleship

,
June 9, 2014
By Nauteal
from NC
"I must say this carrier is built like a Battleship. Great combination when you are looking for a carrier that can serve multiple purposes. Carrying the bikes for an outing or packing the extra gear for vacation. Or even something that you don't want in the interior of your SUV from the hardware store. This carrier is BIGGER than most carriers on the market because of it meeting the purpose of being able to carry 4 bikes.
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because one feature is missing that would serve 2 Great Purposes. (A) Some carriers offer a tilt up feature that allows the carrier to be stowed vertically on the vehicle when not in use. (B) And the other big advantage to the tilt-up, is making it easier for one person to install the unit on the vehicle. This feature would allow the installer to stand vertically making it easier to install by not having to stress from bending over to install. If they were to offer that feature either as an upgrade or on a future model - I WOULD BUY IT.

Sturdy, use full, well built, Heavy and poor welds

,
February 4, 2014
By 4wdtruckfun
from Vernon, CT
"This thing is durable and heavy. Keep it in the garage with easy access. Back up to it and lift it up and slide it onto the hitch and then pick it up push it into the receiver.
Holds 4 bikes well use the 2 adult bikes like book ends and put the kids bikes in the middle. included ratchet strap is good and the velcro straps for the tires are excellent. The tire holders are good , I have had 2 welds break. The paint is also good. All welds are sloppy and were not ground down very well before paint.

2 in 1 cargo bike carrier

By UCNurse
from Sauquoit
"Love this product took it to Lake George with 3 adult size bikes and one 20 inch kids size bike very secure does take two people to put on hitch to car since it is heavy but very durable. Bikes were stable the whole way and did not move. Recommend this to any family of 4 who go bike riding."

Good bike rack

,
October 13, 2011
By SlabMaster
from Norfolk, VA
"I can load three medium to large sized bikes on this no problem. adding a fourth looks possible, too, but i haven't had a need to do it yet. this is a good rack and has served us well. the ONLY drawback is this thing is heavy. if you're mounting it yourself you might want to get a second set of hands to help, but it is definitely possible to hitch it up solo (if you have a healthy back)."

Great Cargo carrier

October 10, 2011
By rick4me
from Longmont, CO
"I purchasded the Ultra-Tow 2-in-1 Cargo Carrier for my wife and mine resent road trip to Sadona, Arizona and the Grand Canyon. We wanted to take our bikes with us plus we wanted to bring back to Colorado some desert cactus and Joshua Trees. The Ultra-Tow 2-in-1 fit the bill perfect, bikes made it to Arizona and back fine and the planets rode on the carrier coming back great. Also no mess in our custom van from the bikes or the planets. This was a great way to travel with our toys."

"this bike rack/cargo holder is very nice. while not totally heavy duty, I think it is sturdy enough for everyday use. I really like how easily adjustable the bike rack portion is. Assembly is easy enough for a regular person with limited tools."
