Telescopic Loading Bar System specially designed for a custom fit in flatbeds, vans, RV's or 4 x 4's; comes with 2 lockable mounts. Keeps bikes in place in those vehicles where conventional racks do not apply; expands from 46 1/2" up to 68" for a custom fit. Add extra mounts and wheel holders to hold up to five bikes (all sold separately). Can also be used to stabilize loads and keep cargo in place. Padlocks lock both the bike to the mount and the load bar to the truck bed (padlocks not included).

Strengths: Cheap, Works
Weaknesses: None so far. I've heard it rusts if you leave it out in the elements (but what doesn't)
After scouring the market and reading reviews on hitch racks, this is the only one under $100. This rack works great, is reasonably priced (compared to the other metal bars, that's really all it is), and works. There are some of these contraptions out there priced over $200! Easy to install, very sturdy, and can lock into bed and lock bikes to it. Very satisfied with this purchase. It gets 4 chilis because I still feel like it is overpriced.
