I completed a side-by-side comparison of the this, the Kuat NV and the 1UP heavy duty two-bike platform racks on a 2015 Subaru Forester w/ a rear hatch and a 2 inch receiver hitch. All three racks were purchased in Oct. 2014. This is by far the easiest to use. Loading/unloading the bikes could not be easier and just takes seconds. Quickly loaded various combinations of triathlon bikes, road bikes and cruisers w/ fat tires and wide fenders. Lock works well. With no bikes loaded and the rack folded down while mounted in the hitch, there is easy access to the back of the vehicle. Took this on a 400+ mile trip. The bikes rode exceptionally well with no wobble and the hitch mount did not loosen one bit. Securely holds the bikes at speed including 75 mph. One-time, two-bolt assembly from the box then mounting on the hitch took 33 minutes. Assembly will be much faster with a ratcheting socket tool.
Hands down - I highly recommend this to anyone not needing access to the back of their vehicle while the bikes are loaded. This rack may allow access to the back or your vehicle so check it out. It does not allow access on our Subaru. When I made the choice of this rack I watched the associated videos, yet after the fact, I realized that I had watched the video of the four-bike version of the same rack. This four-bike version does tilt away from the rear of the vehicle. I am very disappointed to not be able to keep this rack and will return only it because it does not tilt to allow access to the hatch of our Subaru while the bikes are loaded. If anyone has any questions about this rack or platform racks for Subaru Foresters leave a comment to my review (or find my review on other sites and leave a comment) and I'll get back to you.
