Olympic Sierra Rack

I just put the Olympic Sierra Rack on the other day, and I must say IT SUCKS!
It is so flimsy I don't even think it can hold the 75lbs they say's it can. I was going to use it for a cooler, but now I think i'll use it for the pillows. Anyone else have this rack, and experience the same thing?

Don't know anything about that rack. But, I did purchase a very nice aluminum trailer hitch rack from HF for $74 that is rated for 500lbs. I have taken my 200lb bod and jumped up and down in it and took it. I know it isn't for hard corp trail runnin but to get stuff to the campground it's perfect. And just a slip of the pin its off and makes a great work bench while camping.

I just wouldn't want to add anymore weight to the tire carrier which it looks like it attaches to. I like the versatility of the Besttop tray. If I have my little girl put it above the rollbars. If not put it above the back seat. Doing a grocery run of interstate trek put it on the rear hitch for less wind resistance.
