Thanks, not too bad better when loaded with bikes. Most of the deck off the back is extra storage. I just added a tailgate to the back today and finished bolting the decking down.
I made sure the bikes were shifted further back to take some of the weight off the tongue.
Loaded 2 bikes and took it for a test today. It rides great. Towing with a 99 Subaru is not the fastest way to get any where. But the 05 XT Turbo Outback will do just fine.
