Better Built Bumper Buddy Cargo Carrier

I had no problem with assembly of my unit. 3 bolts, 2 spacers and 2 pins work perfectly (tight as they should be to control rattling). As a note: I did find that rotating the steel bar that inserted into the aluminum deck did change the alignment of the holes and I assume this is a designed offset to compensate for the dimensional differences in the 2 box tubes. The 2 enclosed shims take up the gap tolerance and thus require the rotation to align the holes. Being the owner of an SUV this has given me a wonderful option to carrying game and fuel outside the vehicle. Much lighter than my friend's steel unit and eliminates the rusting as well. Folding design is a fabulous feature in tight parking locations.

Solid Purchase

Very happy with my purchase of a Better Built Bumper Buddy Cargo Carrier. This unit is very well built with a couple of exceptions. The part that swivels from horizontal to vertical has a little bit of a sloppy fit. I had to shim this area. The pin that holds the unit into the hitch wouldn't fit. I had to enlarge the holes. I really like the weight of the carrier. It can be handled very easily by just one person.

Looks as good as it performs

Bought this to replace a steel carrier that was too heavy and cumbersome to handle.This carrier is built better and still lightweight.
Looked great and still has all the features I need.

Neutral Reviews:

Nice, but with flaws.

Overall this is a very nice product. I like the general construction and the light weight. But as others have said in their reviews, it doesn't fit a standard 2" hitch as it claims. There are 2 problems: 1) the hitch pin hole is too small for a standard hitch pin and 2) the overall size of the hitch insert is too large for my standard 2" hitch ( everything else I have bought elsewhere fits into my 2" hitch receiver ). I am going to work it out myself by drilling a larger hole and grinding down the corners of the hitch insert so that it will fit into my hitch receiver. But it is pretty ridiculous that they promote this product as fitting into a standard 2" hitch when in fact it requires modification to fit.
