Storage rack

Anyone use one of the foldable receiver racks for light hauling. Saw one at Tractor Service Supply for $150, didn't know if they are any good or will hold up to the 175lbs I think the box stated.

So I'm new to this site and I'm hoping this is how I reply to this. A good friend of mine bought one and loves it. He uses it alot during hunting season and when going fishing he even took one of those folding stadium chairs like u would use at a football game and will sit on it while fishing by the lake I do not know how much weight his is rated for though I am wanting to build one and migh this summer I have an old fishing boat hitch that I am going to weld the top plate too

Is there a reason you need the folding rack?

The reason I ask is, you can find the standard hitch mount rack for $100 or less all day long. Hitch Cargo Carrier - 500 lb. Capacity

They typically hold 500lbs.

I got the 500lb one from
Harbor Freight for $39 last month with a coupon! Already paid for itself by hauling my new 8.8. Went together in 10 minutes. Works great.
