Saris Hitch Bike Carrier

Anyone used the new Saris B.A.T. 999 Hitch mount carrier? (or even the older 998)

They look pretty sturdy and are recomended in my jeep forums. nice price too (125)

thoughts?

I have been using mine now for about six months and have never had any problems with it.

It has been sturdy, though it does rock a bid in the reciever.

I got mine for $133 on Ebay for the 3 bike model, an extra BAT rack for a 4th bike, the thick security cable, light, and shipping.

I would buy it again.

All that for $133? new? did you buy it form someone who had an ebay store or just an individual?

the ones on there now are $124 just for the carrier ... none of the goodies.

It was brand new - never opened. The "goodies" arrived in a second box, but they were all in their original packing.

I purchased it from an individual, but he had a BUNCH of positive feedback and no negative.

Considering the rack withouth the extras would have cost 179 + tax at my LBS, I was overjoyed!

Everything arrived perfectly - except UPS kind of tore up the box.
The contents were fine though)
