Does anyone use these. Trying to determine the sturdiness of them before I spend the money on one.
Any recommendations?

I have an aluminum one from Harbor Frieght. It is well built and has held up well.

I have the steel one from Harbor Freight. I can stand on it (200 pounds) and jump. I put a couple plastic storage bins on it and drove 2500 miles MI->FL->MI in February. Worked great!

Got one...works well. Bought mine from Costco on-line. Rated for 500# and I have no doubt that it will hold that much! It's pretty heavy.

I have a 2" receiver on the back of my 5W that I lock the carrier onto. Use it to tote my jenny and gas when boondocking.

Have used one for years. There is also a bolt on for most vehicles for the front. They are great. Use something to stabalize the side to side and twisting. I use Ratchet ties.

Stay within their ratings, and most are sturdier than the hitch receiver that they go into.

We have an older steel one...seems plenty sturdy...maybe giant boulders might be a bit much ;-)
