Très robusteInstallé derrière une roulotte. Je pars vraiment l’esprit tranquille. Très solide. Seul point négatif, il ne bascule pas comme d’autre Thule. Il est moins pratique lorsque je l’installe sur ma voiture.

AMAZING !!Who ever came up with the design on this should be bonused!Amazing quality, durability and really easy to install. I love how simple it is to attach the bikes, how solid they sit on the rack and the fact they do not move during transportation. Worth every penny!And when you are not using it, you don’t have to remove it! Just fold it down and you are good to go.The added feature of the built in lock, just one more reason to purchase this item.
Good SafetyFit perfect in Nissan Armada 2006.

Rock solid bike rackRock solid piece of equipment. Easy install. Was delivered and we left next day and have been out 4,000 miles this summer with this on the RV and it’s been great. Only issue was we were shorted 2 of the flexible ratchet strap things; not a big deal and I have finally gotten around to messaging the seller to ask for help. Was shipped in the Thule box with no protective wrap and the shipper really crunched the box but all was fine no damage to contents.

Stable and strong. OK for SUV use.Although a little heavy then most – great stability and I don’t worry about my bikes. Even worked to fit a couple of kids bikes with non-standard frames after some foolin with angles. I use it on a 2016 Honda CRV.
Great Purchase! Have used multiple times behind our RVI purchased a tire mount rack prior to this and had nothing but trouble. i decided to spend a little more on the second one. I am greatly impressed by the high quality of this Thule bike rack. It is an excellent product and will last a lifetime! I also love that the hitch locks and it has a built in lock for the bicycles.

Worked great for 3 MTN BikesVery easy to install. If you are leveraging the 4″ square bumper on the trailer with a bolt on hitch, make sure you reinforce the bumper. The bumper will twist/flex enough to pop out the end caps during the trip.The bike rack works great, and easily folds out of the way when the bikes are unloaded. My only complaint is with the lock. It snaps very securely into the riser when not used, and may take extra encouragement to fully extend the cable so you can actually lock the bikes. I had to disassemble the rack and lay the vertical piece on the ground, stand on it, and give it a real good tug to fully extend the cable the first time. It was so stuck I almost broke out my power tools and installed my own cable lock system. Once the stuck cable was addressed, the bikes easily fit on the rack and remained securely fastened the entire trip.
Do not use a regular bike rack. Must have for any trailer, traveler trailer, or motorhome.I purchased a regular bike rack and had it on the back of my travel trailer. Thank Goodness my bikes didn’t fall off and harm someone or something. Regular bike racks are NOT supposed to go the back of a trailer, travel trailer, RV, etc. Reason being, the metal is not thick enough to handle the bounce/sway from the back ofa trailer. Take it from me, regular bike racks will not last. Plus, you could be held legally responsible for negligence.The Thule Range Bike rack’s steel is incredibly thick; double, if not triple the thickness of a regular rack. Plus, the bolts are heavy-duty, and its much heavier. any reviews that‘s complaining about the bolts loosening, they must not of read the directions. It clearly states to check the bolts tension after a certain period of time time. In addition, it states to regularly check to ensure they’re still tight. This is the same for any rack.The only negative feedback I can share is that you cannot extend the bike rack to open the trunk of your vehicle. To clarify, on a regular cheaper bike rack, you can pull the hinge and drop the bike rack so you can open the trunk of your vehicle or the bed of your truck. That being said, it’s actually an advantage and why this bike rack is so much stronger and sturdier because you cannot move any of the pieces and it’s bolted together.All in all, I highly recommend this bike rack for peace of mind, safety, sturdy, and reliability for traveling with bicycles behind a travel trailer, motorhome or trailer. Also, I paid $400 for the unit.
