Strengths: This rack is extremely well-made, sturdy (and heavy, see weakness.) The swing feature works well when needed, but frankly I haven't had to use it too often.
Weaknesses: This rack is very heavy and realistically only fits up to three adult bikes and one kid/teen bike.
I've used this rack on a Honda Odyssey (2" hitch) for over five years. When my kids were smaller (and rode smaller bikes) it didn't take me long to get ready for a ride... now with three adult-sized bikes and a teen-sized bike it takes too long to get everything positioned up on the rack.
I'm now looking for quicker-mounting tray-type rack.
