Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well built and sturdy. Looks smart on the car, its versatile
and has an advantage over a trailer --- on Motorways a trailers speed limit does not apply.
Bad points:
Fiddly and very heavy thus needs more than a modicum of strength and patience to fix to the car

Good points:
My husband and I found it really useful when we used it recently to travel to a craft fair for carrying stuff, it was very easy to connect and disconnect from the car. From a storage point of view when not is use it is very good as it folds up to store.
Bad points:
I do feel it is a little expensive, when you consider it is only a rack, and you have to pay extra for a box or a bag to go on to it.

Good points:
We camp with our family and the product made it so much easier. All our soft bedding and much more went in to the bag. We wrapped everything in bin liners for extra security against wet. Heavy downpour on the way, but we arrived with everything dry.
Bad points:
None really.

Good points:
Does the job
Bad points:
Likely to rust. Assembly was not straoghtforward. Punched square holes in the light mounting brackets were the wrong size. Had to diassemble the light mount and hold the end of the pan head bolt with a pair of pliers to tighten into the frame.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Takes about 30-60 mins to put together but very easy to do. Loading onto the towbar can be done by one person. I had never used a tow bar before and wasn't 100% sure about the fitting and its stability. Obviously makes the car a bit longer so care when parking, although once you arrive at your destination it is easily dismantled and stored. After fitting we drove to the French Alps and back without even a wiggle. Really good quality, stable and best of all frees up a huge amount of space from inside the car.
