Sean Dempsey our FWC dealer recommended we take a look at their products. I spent time researching and talking to the company representatives before committing. These are made in WI. and are very well engineered. The build quality and ease of use sold me on the purchase. Refreshing to see a quality product made in the USA. The swing is easy to operate and clears the truck in all positions. I purchased five pin locks one for the rack and four to secure the bikes. No part of the rack or locks make contact with the bike frames. Also purchased the lighted licenses plate holder. It pins into the trucks flat four pin connection port. Nice feature that makes the system legal to drive. Nice that they are located two hrs drive from our home. I could see the bikes in the rear view mirror they barely moved. Highly recommended their products.

That looks like an excellent rack. Please keep us posted on your experience with it.

1Up will be my next bike rack purchase. Pricey, but obviously worth it. Quality.

I have had a 1Up 2 bike rack for a couple of years.  It has survived several White Rim trips, and is still going strong.   This is a case of getting what you pay for.

Good to know. I would bring our bikes along more often if I thought I could trust my 25 y/o Yakima Getaway to the beatings.

I had a hard time deciding between the 1up and Kuat. Ultimately went with the Kuat and extremely happy with it but if there is a next time will go with 1up. We have e mountain bikes and my wife cannot lift hers so we needed a ramp. What I like about the 1 up is the ability to change from 1 to 2 trays and vice versa relatively easily as there are frequent times my wife goes by herself. With the Kuat, her bike goes in the outer tray because it is easier than trying to put it on the inner tray. Either way, both racks are “super duty” and rock solid.
