I purchased the SC500 carrier from a different site about 3 weeks ago. Then I came across the swing away hitch mount at your site. I installed it yesterday and found it has too many problems to use. First, the swing away doesn't swing out enough to open the rear door on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Secondly this evening after I finished installing the swing away hitch, I found the weight of the power wheelchair which is just over 200 lbs, makes the carrier lean backward and very unstable. I double checked everything and decided I should not drive with this on. I decided to take the swing away hitch off and without the swing away hitch, the carrier is much more stable. The idea of being able to swing the carrier away so I could have access to the back of the jeep when I open the rear lift gate but the carrier doesn't even swing out far enough. I would return the swing away hitch but I threw the box and packing away when I opened it. There are too many flaws with this hitch and it doesn't accomplish what it states it should do. The carrier without the swing away hitch supports my daughter's power wheelchair just fine. (Just for your info, the owner's manual of the chair states it weights 206 lbs and by the way there isn't anyone sitting on it when I loaded the chair either. The chair is the only weight on the carrier. I have to give this carrier a, 0 out of 10 for a useful product. Where the bars sit on top of each other the weight pulls down the back end of the carrier so badly it brought concern to both myself and my brother as we tried to figure out how to improve the hitch. We could only conclude to remove it from the vehicle and just connect the original carrier product. 65225
The shipping went out the day I ordered, upgraded, and free! The rack is heavy duty and works well. The welds are a little sloppy and the holes for the hitch pin were too small and had to be drilled out (5/8 bit). It was no big deal for me since I was already modifying the rack to hold gas cans and tools for offroading. It's also got a bracket on the back that I'm going to mount a removable bike rack. For a 130 bucks, fast shipping, and a good product, I am very pleased. 22999

I was extremely impressed with the way you handled my order. I will use this product on my Saturn Vue, to be able to use my scooter carrier. This will give ascess to my rear door. There were no problems installing the swing arm. I would suggest you add the anti-tilt, to the order and charge more. Overall I was satified with the order and help from etrailer. 59936
The product is as advertised and does an excellent job. Assembly is easy, 5 minutes at most. Solved a very real problem with summer travels; I can now open the back door on my Tahoe. Better than the product even was the wonderful service I received from the staff at etrailer.com I can recommend the product and heartily recommend etrailer.com 142001

This is a good buy and Etrailer has the best deal on the web, it is heavy duty, the latching part had to be drilled out a little, so it would align properly, but no biggy... super fast shipping.. cannot ask for more... 172337

The swing away hitch mounted carrier was exactly what I needed to mount a cargo carrier for my 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sport. It was packaged well and delivered quickly with no hassle. The service was terrific all around. 160817
