Ease of Installation Functionality Quality / Durability Overall Value
Now the Sherpa. The fit and finish is head and shoulders above some of the other racks I was looking at. It is super light and very easy to use. Some of the other racks use a lot of nuts and bolts for assembly where the Sherpa uses very sturdy welded joints. It makes zero contact with the bike frame and is super sturdy. I purchased the black/chrome version and it looks great on the back of my truck.
The problem I had with the Sherpa is that I couldn't open the tailgate with the Sherpa installed (even with no bikes on the rack). The tailgate can be opened about 80% of the way before it would make contact with the rack/damage the paint on the tailgate. I also tried it out on some of my co-workers' trucks and you can't open the tailgate on a Ram, F150, or a Silverado/Sierra.
If you are handy, the rack can be modified to work with a truck's tailgate (which is what I did). I contacted Kuat about my issue and their suggestion was to buy the NV instead. I would have loved to get the NV, but my wife's car and my truck use different size hitches, so the NV wouldn't work for us.
Overall, it is a sturdy, well-built rack that I wouldn't hesitate to buy again (not that I'll ever have to). Even if you don't pick a Sherpa, pick Cracks & Racks if you want outstanding customer service. (Posted on 4/19/2015)
