I have 2019 Outback with factory installed hitch mount. Could buy the Subaru model of Thule bike rack but saw that this one is very lightweight and could possibly hold 3 bikes safely? Rack weighs only 20 lbs. we would have up to 3 adult mountain bikes (Specialized, Trek) bikes on it. Anyone with more knowledge about load weight tell me if this is a good idea or not? Thanks!

It’s a Thule so I would have absolutely not problem trusting it. If it fits and meets your needs, I would not hesitate to buy it.

I’d be concerned with the weight rating on the Thule rack. Mountain bikes can be heavy (mine is 35lbs) and carrying them in a hanging rack isn’t the best

max limit on that rack is 112 lbs so a little more than 35lbs per bike.
keep in mind that the tongue weight limit on the outback is 200 lbs (rack weight + bikes) , so watch out for that.
