    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine if you don't need to open your boot Fairly disappointed with this. The design has not been thought out very well. The rack is well made and solid. It sits firmly on the towbar. However, once fitted I could not open the rear door of my camper even with the vertical arm folded down. The support brackets for the bar are very tall and prevent the door from being able to open. I can't see you being able to open the tail gate on many vehicles with this design. This is very annoying when you have items in the back that you need to get to. The only way to open the tail gate is to slacken off the attachment bolt and tip the whole rack down so the door clears the support brackets. Not what you need when unloading after a long day or you have forgotten something in the boot! One other thing to watch is the wiring for the lights. In the instructions, Thule shows where to put the tie wraps to hold the wires to the rack. Unfortunately, this leaves one dangling near the tow ball attachment. Whilst re-attaching the rack late at night due to the above restriction, I didn't notice this wire being trapped in the tow bar attachment. Next morning I noticed the wire had been nearly cut in half. Not impressed. I repaired the cable and added additional tie wraps to prevent this happening again. Finally, there is nothing to stop the bolt which secures the rack to the towbar being undone by a thief. The rack could be stolen in a couple of minutes. For extra expense you can buy an lockable cover from Thule, but this is just made from plastic and pretty worthless as a security measure. To sum up, I expected better from Thule.
