4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good. Oct. 12 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Rather than get a huge MPG draining cargo bag for the roof, this was the next best option. I also wanted something big enough to handle a huge bag of duck decoys so I don't have to put them in my SUV after I've been out hunting.

It comes in parts and you need to put the whole thing together. I did NOT agree with the directions where the head of the bolts were on the outside and the thread/nuts on in the inside. This causes the sharp edges of the threads to point into the tray. I also purchased a waterproof bag for the cargo tray and if I put it in there with the thread pointed in, it could easily tear the bag. I reversed the directions of the bolts and its better now. Put some silicone on the edge of the threads now facing out so anyone walking around the tray doesn't get scraped.

The floor of the tray is pretty flimsy and definitely requires you to spread the weight. Putting anything dense on it (like a stump) can probably break the mesh floor, or at least it seems like it could. But since I plan on using it for luggage in a waterproof bag on long trips, I'm not really concerned about this issue.

I added some extra reflectors to it for about $5. I'm concerned with someone not seeing it in a dark environment and tripping over it or even a car not seeing it since it is rather low and black.

UPDATE: I have used this for about a year. Still no problems other than the occasional getting it scraped when going over steep dips. This is more of a problem of the road and car then the carrier. Used it for long trips from NJ to FL with multiple suitcases. You never know it was there unless you get to check it once in awhile. And certainly never effected gas mileage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice carrier! Sept. 2 2011
By J. Penegar - Published on Amazon.com

This carrier looks slightly different to what is pictured. I'll try to post a picture later. It amazon picture shows two braces on the bottom of the frame. Even the box that the carrier arrived in shows the same picture. Apparently Highland has improved the design. They have added more support (from what I can tell) to the frame pieces on each end of the main support bar and eliminated the pictured braces. It seems to be a much better design.

The carrier assembles easily. I did snap off one bolt, but it was easily replaced. It seems to be very sturdy. Obviously, at the center it's very strong. I put my 200 plus pounds on it there and it doesn't budge. I would not stand on either end though. If you're going to load it to it's 500 pound max, weight will need to be evenly distributed. I think it will work well for my planned use. I bought it for tailgating and plan to load a small Honda generator and coolers.

Overall, I'm very impressed and happy with this carrier.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you can get it, especially for the price July 19 2012
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com

I had to order this 3 times from the Warehouse before I got it. The first one mysteriously disappeared at a ups depot after being checked in and out 3 times, the second one was the wrong product, third time was the charm.

Its cheap, its decently made, its a little floppy and you'd best center or distribute your load, because if you put it on one side or the other, this will bend at I'd say around 80-100lbs. It came a little scratched and dinged, so it'll need regular spray painting.

Its also quite heavy compared to tubular or aluminum versions. As much as twice as heavy.

Serves my purpose well, with the matching waterproof bag that the same company (Highland) sells. I throw this on the back of the SUV when we go to the beach, and all our wet stuff, towels, inflatables, etc all goes into the bag. When we get home, I can sort everything out and no mud or water in the back of the car. It'll also be nice if I need to go grab 6-8 bags of mulch, I can load them on this instead of breaking out the trailer to avoid stains in the back of the car.

If you have a trailer hitch and don't have one of these, you're missing out. From hauling messy stuff to throwing a few bikes on it, its handy. Make sure you buy one of those nice little cylinder hitch locks to keep someone from stealing it, and put some extra reflective tape on it while you're at it. One of my ditzy friends turned into a parking lot last week and cleaned one of these right off the back of a parked car.

Lastly, I somehow managed to assemble mine perfectly backwards so the reflective tape that does come on it is on the bumper end. Doh! I'd have had to take every bolt and nut out to fix it. I didn't notice that in the directions they had flipped the thing over between the two diagrams. Wasn't worth the trouble, as I have plenty of reflective tape and other than the Highland name printed, there is no difference to having the bed in reverse. Plus I'm sure it'll be a real conversation starter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did the job July 30 2012

Put this on the back of my '12 town and country. Got everything balanced evenly and bungee'd it all down, with a tarp and ratchet strap over it all. Traveled to the beach 70/80mph, all was well. I forgot to reverse the bolts as another reviewer suggested, but the type of cargo I had (cooler, chairs, bag of toys, etc) wasn't too delicate.

Assembling by hand was a bit of a challenge, the two primary bolts to attach the tray to the hitch/support bar were very tight. I'm sure anyone with a wider selection of tools wouldn't have had that problem.

I had to be careful though, turning into parking lots and such, to go in at an angle to avoid scraping the back. It seems that the bottom of the bolt sticking out (prob a good 1/2" past the nut) took the brunt of the impact. Another thing worth mentioning, as I have a row of sensors along the back bumper, the rim of the tray blinds a few of them, causing the system to disable (park assist sensors). The first time I backed up, it started screeching, then shut off and gave me a "Service Park Assist" message. Once I removed the tray and backed up where there was something to detect, it reset and took away the message.

The price is right and does the job. It would benefit from being able to fold up when not in use, and have a slightly higher rim (6"-8" would be very helpful), but for the price, it is more than acceptable. I will definitely pop this on when getting mulch and other dirty things that are not worth towing on the trailer.

One last thing to keep in mind when considering this purchase, if you are using it on a van or SUV with a liftgate, you will need to pack AFTER you have loaded the back, since your gate most likely will not clear your cargo. That was sortof a "Duh!" moment after I put it on. You may also consider tying some rags on the cargo where your gate may hit if it is accidentally opened when you are fully loaded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the money Oct. 22 2013
By J. B. Ellis - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this carrier for things that I did not want in the SUV. It states that it is not intended for fuel, but I had rather put the lawn mower gas on the rack rather than inside the car. Also, it easily transported the 200 pound deer that I did not want in the car or a couple of coolers. Be sure to center the weight. Not hard to assemble, about 20 minutes. It is light weight, but that's perfect because I only want the carrier on the car when I need it there. I rated it 5 stars, not for super quality, but it is great for the money and my needs.
