    We bought the "Full Swing 4 Bike carrier" (hitch) and saw the ski rack attachment. It is fairly easy to assemble, fairly easy to place on the bike rack but my biggest complaint is that 2 pair of skis on one side is a major pain when trying to close almost to the point of me wanting to just throw in the back of our mini van instead. I got a great deal so I can deal with it.

    After quite a bit of monkeying around, I was able to get a pair of skis wedged through the bottom rails. Even at the widest setting on the top rails, I could not get it closed (over the thinnest part between the front and rear of the bindings). I had to separate the skis and set them in side by side. 3 skis per side is the max. Save your money.

    With my Fiat 500 Convertible, a roof rack is not possible. Compared to the simplicity and stability of a roof rack, this combination of the HitchSki with A DoubleDown Ace 4 is quite bulky, heavy, and bounces around. It's among the best of the options available, but it's unfortunate that the only solution for hauling skis on a hitch rack is to convert a bicycle rack. A ski-specific design could be much smaller, lighter, and more stable. Why isn't such a product available?

    I like to put my skins on before leaving the house and strap my skis base-to-base, but the design of the lower arms will not allow this (gap too narrow). Loading options are limited, any arrangement but single skis side-by-side is difficult to accommodate. I solved this problem by using the upper arms above and below, but this required $190. in spare parts.

    Finally, although skis can be locked into the HitchSki, the Hitchski unit itself only straps to the bike rack, making it quick and easy to steal the whole thing, skis and all. I'd like some way to at least bolt it on.

    Don't get me wrong, this is a good rack for what it is, but for hauling skis/boards only (no bikes), there should be a better solution.
