Sturdy unit, few complaints but a solid buy.
June 15, 2017
Okay first the good, this is a sturdy unit I have no doubt you'll be able to load this up to your hitch capacity (bear in mind that as this hangs off your hitch it will be less then your usual rated limit) and it'll hold true. Assembly was easy all parts lined up, instructions are your standard garbled English/bad picture quality but its easy enough to work through it. Parts arrived secured in package including the bolts so didn't have the same experience as others here. Paint is just your standard black spray and it scratches off at the slightest contact with a hard surface but at this price point I'm not expecting a powder coat or anything so can't dock it marks.
Now on to the bad, this is supposed to fit a 2" hitch, and it does. But the tolerance is really loose on it so it does have tendency to wobble unless you shim it with something (someone else suggested duct tape). If you're not loading this up to capacity I don't think its a big stress on the parts or anything, but its enough to make you a little nervous. I ran it for about 500kms over various road surfaces(including rough gravel) and it held together no problem so I'm comfortable saying at this point that it'll stand up even if you don't shim it with something, at least until you decide that you want an upgrade to a trailer :) Outside of that, make sure you open the box OUTSIDE or in your garage, as it is just FULL of metal pellets from the manufacturing process, like it sounds like sand inside the bars, and in the box. I assembled it in my basement and I'm still finding the dang things underfoot. That's enough for me to dock another star as its pretty bad, they really should blow those out at the factory before shipping there's no justification to do otherwise. Lastly if your hitch is low to the ground you may have some trouble going over speed bumps or the like, other units are lifted a bit as they come out of the hitch to compensate for that.
All in all, for under 100 bills this is a solid buy as long as you keep your expectations inline with the price point. Sure you can buy a more expensive one and it'll be better then this and longer lasting, but in a pinch this one is fine.
