The actual build quality appears to be very good, the welds for instance are solid with no visible defects that I could see. The coating finish seems to be very robust and I hope will last for a long time. Building the item took a little while but once I got used to it, it went together very well. Unfortunately for me I have fitted it to a Landrover LR3 and the carrier sits low, ( too low for my liking ), and does not sit level from the hitch, ( maybe 2 inches drop from the hitch to the eld of the support bar (, this is not your issue it is mine and i will have to do some sort of modification to level it out. Also the loading ramp pin can not be inserted as the hole is drilled too low. Al in all very happy.
