    How does it hold up while driving? Does it wobble around?

    The whole thing does wobble a little bit just because the hitch peice is a tiny bit smaller than the hitch receiver ya know. . but not too bad it goes pretty smooth unless your on a real bumpy road

    I got one used for my truck since my spare tires are in the way to load up a bike. I can't build it for how cheap I got it. My truck leans like crazy and take some pretty wild roads. you'll like it

    i have one also it works like a champ, one question on the wobble mine has a plate with 4 bolts in it that you push up agianst the reciever. Tighten all the bolts down and it has no wobble at all, i can get some pics if you don't have that piece so you have an idea of what it is.
