Two key items drove my purchase of this item: Cost and the ability to handle "odd shapped" bike frames.
This thing does exactly what it says it will and I am VERY satisfied with it so far. It's sturdy, super easy to use and load bikes, etc. I will probably be sticking with the Platform style in the future.
It was easy to put together, easy to attach to the hitch, easy to load bikes, maintains great stability while on the road....yup, I'm happy with it.
