Video Transcript for Curt Folding Aluminum Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to review part number C18100 from Curt. This is their aluminum cargo carrier for 2" receiver hitches. I'll go ahead and cover some of the features of this cargo carrier. First off, it is designed to fit 2X2 trailer hitch receivers only. This cargo carrier does not come with the hitch and pin. Those are sold separately.

This also folds up when not in use, so you have room in your garage, or at the back of your vehicle. With the cargo carrier constructed from aluminum, it allows more weight left over for carrying capacity. This capacity of this cargo carrier is 500lbs, or the tongue limit of your hitch. This cargo carrier is easy to assemble using basic hand tools. I'll go ahead and cover the actual inside dimensions of the cargo carrier. Measuring on the inside at the very bottom, we have a distance of 60" across, 19"wide, and 2-3/4" tall.

We'll get one final measurement from the hitch pin to the outside edge of the cargo carrier to give you an idea of how much length is at the back of the vehicle, and that measurement will be about 30". You can also see along the edge of the rails of the cargo carrier, you see these circles. Those are intended for tie-down points. The smaller holes towards the outside edge are there in case you want to add some additional lights. It also has a provision for a license plate if you want to bolt it to the back.

One thing to remember when you tie down your cargo on all cargo carriers, do not attach to the expanded metal at the bottom. It's just not as strong as the sides are. With that, that will finish it for our review of part number C18100 from Curt. .

Examined, assembled, and tested - not yet actually used on the road. The downsides are too minor to drop it to 4 Stars. I didn't have a scale handy, but this is easily about half the weight of the steel rack of the same size - Yes !! While I know from experience with sheet-metal shearing that VERY sharp edges can be created, my unit did not have much of any such problem. I recommend that these edges be carefully felt, and smoothed with a file or grinding stone if needed, before assembly. The instructions were clear and correct. I would use the word "snug" instead of "80%" to describe bolt tightening during assembly. Any experienced mechanic knows to not fully tighten any fasteners until all related alignment parts are in place. I would absolutely recommend that the bolts of Step 1 and 4 be inserted with the smooth head on the inside (where the bag would touch), rather than with nuts/bolts inside as pictured where they could cause damage. I would also absolutely use a dry lubricant, such as spray Teflon, on the contact surfaces between 2" shank #6 and foldable connection bar #9. This will allow you to tighten the big pivot bolt VERY snug, and still easily rotate the joint - DO NOT USE ANY LIQUID LUBRICANT. The hitch-pin hole location did not line up if fully inserted into my hitch. I could have used it that way, but I marked and drilled a better-location pin hole instead. The unit feels very strong - no sign of bending even with my 240 pounds bouncing on the rearmost end. Yes people, ALL hitches are wiggly "loose" by design - use a hitch tightener U-Bolt/Plate assembly, and/or actually tie the left and right ends to the vehicle. 276759

Great product once assembly is complete. Very light weight. I can easily lift the entire carrier with one arm. I'm not sure how it will hold 500lbs though because it feel so light...but Curt says it does so I will give it a try in a few weeks. The carrier wobbles just a little bit in the receiver but not enough to cause any concern or disappointment with the overall product. Two negatives though: 1. Assembly was easy but the instructions were completely crappy. If your not able to read a picture or have trouble following vague directions you may take a little longer to get this thing put together. 2. I can not fold the carrier all the way up. It hits my bumper. I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and need about 1/4 inch more clearance to get the carrier up and in the locked position. I will have to buy an extender to use this feature. As with other stuff from etrailer, it came fast. There werent any holes in the box (unlike my trailer hitch) and the product was in great shape. Good customer service and the carrier got here a day earlier than scheduled. 28155

Did just fine with about 300 lbs and I imagine that up to the weight limit it will perform the same.

We chose this cargo carrier due to its ability to carry 500 lbs. and the fact that it is lightweight. We intend to put it on our camper van. I was very impressed with the speed and quality of service and follow-up provided by trailer. I would definitely purchase from them again. They have quality products at competitive prices. 171729


Comments

Still love the cargo carrier but unfortunately I was rear-ended last week and they crushed the cargo carrier! But the carrier took the brunt of the impact. We truly believe if it wasnt there, the damage would have been much worse. ??So I was going to order another when I received your message. How weird!?! Anyway, It still is great and we love it! Gonna order it now!

Comments

The cargo carrier is great! I used it all last year for my art shows, putting on it what didnt fit in the vehicle. The only comment would be some of the edges on the mesh used is extremely sharp, so i had to get a piece of indooroutdoor rug and put over the whole carrier so it would not rip my carrier bag. I like the weight, easy for me to put on by myself. First time a company has ever checked on their products a year after! Thanks! I will certainly contact you if I have other needs! Jan

Quick and Easy to Assemble Always wear hand protection, when assembling this cargo carrier. One slip of my socket wrench caused me to slice two of my fingers, on the very sharp, aluminum mesh bottom, of the carrier, and sent me to the emergency room for two stitches in my right pinky, and three in my ring finger. All in all, the carrier was very easy to put together, and the only negative that I experienced with it so far, is that the receiver end wobbles, when mounted into the bumper 2x2" square hole. I need to make some sort of shim, to eliminate this problem. Otherwise, this cargo carrier is very well made and particularly light-weight and easy to handle, yet very sturdy. It would be very nice if reflective red safety tape had been provided for the carrier, for improved night driving visibility of the carrier. I suggest that a safety statement, recommending the use of gloves, be mentioned in the assembly instructions and that the mesh floor, of the carrier, is razor sharp, so be careful, during assembly. All in all, I really like this aluminum cargo carrier..... 3265

I just did 800 miles with this cargo carrier and had no problem, but make sure you purchase the anti rattle pin because it has some play in the hitch. 167460

I ordered this platform for my CX-7 along with a 2" Hidden Hitch. I received my entire order a day early and everything was in good order. As for the aluminum platform...easy to assemble and lightweight. When it's mounted on the car and folded-up, it just barely misses touching the bumper. The weak link in this is the main hinge-pivot bolt. Once removed, the rest of the platform could be easily stolen from the back of the vehicle. I'm going to order a second locking pin to make it more secure. Another issue is the proximity of the tailpipes to the platform when it is in either position. I plan to install some sheet metal deflectors to direct the exhaust towards the ground. Ultimately, it took about 30 minutes to assemble, installed easily on the CX-7, fits excellent and it looks great. It doesn't stick out too far and doesn't cover the license plate or taillights when folded up. 202967

Works fine. Easy to assemble, no issues at all, took about 45 minutes. Been using it weekly or more for over a month. I use it for hauling garbage to the dump and carrying jerrycans of gas outside the vehicle. Only concern is that it's a bit flimsy--the platform flexes and the sides bend a bit more than I like when I ratchet down the straps to hold on the cargo, but that's aluminum for you. It takes the 100+ lbs I carry, but I'm skeptical about the 500 lb rating. Little nervous about loading my snowblower on to it. Lightweight, easy easy to install and remove, stores easily in the garage. Folds up nicely against the back of my 4Runner, though it does obscure the licence plate about 1/2 way. Police don't seem too concerned--so far. I purchased also anti-rattle hitch pin--highly recommended. Without this, the carrier shakes a lot from side to side. Would I buy this again?--oh yeah. 176337

The assembly is a little challenging and the instructions are cumbersome. Also, seems like the bar going into the hitch is loose. All in all for the price it is a decent cargo carrier. I bought reflective tape and a hitch pin lock, to insure safety. Would be nice to have these available through this site. 95387

Very happy with the carrier. The cargo bag I bought to go with it didnt last the first trip. The bottom of the bag was shredded by the grating on the carrier. Need a protective mat or barrier under the cargo bag.

A great basket for the price. Consider adding reflective tape, as well as adding a hitch tightener to prevent the basket from swaying side to side. Here are my photos 56733

Will be using this rack to carry luggage on our vacation in June. We have given it a trial run around town and think it will work very well. It was easy to put together, but needs elements to make it more stable. It tips left and right more than I like, and it is too loose in the receiver. I would rather have the design and parts correct rather than having to find fixes after the fact. However, it will do the job, is light enough for my wife to put it on our car when necessary, and gear ties down well. Be careful of the fold up feature, we can not tip our rack up as it hits the car. It is too close. I should have asked how to determine this prior to ordering. 132299

Received the rack just 3 days after ordering! It was very easy to assemble. I really like that the rack is so light and easy to handle since I will be putting it on and taking it off frequently. I also like the folding mechanism which is easy to use. After putting the rack together and putting it on my car I loaded it up with a lawn mower, gas can, and line trimmer. It all fit with no problem. Of course, the lawn mower was a little wider than the rack, but that really wasn't an issue. Used the stretch net (part # 7330) to secure everything. I am very pleased with the products and the service from etrailer.com. 10837

The carrier is just as stated on the site. One major problem is that it is stated to be for a 2 inch hitch. I have a 2 inch Reese hitch and when you slide this into the hitch sleeve it does not fit snug, this allows your carrier to move over 2 inches on either side allowing everything to shift that is placed onto the carrier platform. Even with things strapped down you still have to add extra stability to prevent the carrier from moving up and down on each side. I have had to add straps from the carrier to the roof rack of my van to drive safely without feeling like things are shifting. 180098

This is a good product. Easily attached to the vehicle by one person. Perfect for hauling things that are not suitable for enclosure in the hatch portion of the vehicle. 41753

The rack was easy enough to put together and is light enough for my wife to handle. I was hoping to use it to carry a motorcycle as it is rated at 500lbs and has holes to attach tie-downs. It seem a bit flimsy for this. For added security I would probably utilize some type of solid bottom say for tires to spread their load more evenly. For hauling bicycles or luggage I think it will work great. I really like that it can fold up when not being used, though it doesn't have any anti-rattle additions I can't say as we haven't actually used it yet. 30748

by: Gerald E.07/26/2012


I just put my carrier together, It felt a little lighter than I expected but if it holds 500 lbs that will be more then I need. The only thing I don't care for is the receiver is very loose in the hitch. you can move the carrier up and down ( at the back ) about two inches. I saw this on another review. it is like the carrier shaft is quite a bit smaller then the hitch it goes in, I have 2 inch hitch, rattles when driving up a bumpy road, will need to slip some thin shims in to take up space. I find all of this minor, Like the carrier. 49448

Fasteners and brackets well designed for use. Product well finished and delivery was prompt. 1" wrench - socket / open / box end needed for assembly which is not usually a part of a consumer tool set. This sent me searching but the directions and product is top grade. I am glad the self-locking nuts were used rather than lock washers. Would recommend seating the M10*83 Carriage Bold before tightening the M10*20. I plan to use the carrier for hauling a generator and or auxiliary black water tank for primitive camping. 7426



- C18100

by: David G.06/27/2013


I purchased this item due to its lighter carry weight as I will store it in an attic when not in use. Reasonably light considering the capacity. When I inventoried the fasteners included for assembly against the instruction sheet, the quantities appeared short. I decided to assemble what I could and then contact the company with what was missing. It all worked out and seems the instructions are for multiple models of similar design. Unit is stout and well made. Assembly was easy over a large cup of coffee. 86425

Cargo carrier arrived promptly, and with great customer service support via email. Not hard to put together, but the instructions could have been clearer. Surprisingly light, but seems sturdy enough, however, it hasn't been used yet. I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough clearance between the vehicle and the edge when folded, but this doesn't seem to be an issue. I bought some reflective tape for the corners to enhance safety. An overall sound investment that I expect to get many years of use from. 50081

I ordered a few items from etrailer.com. They shipped immediately. When I received the box of goods, I was astounded by the quality of the cardboard shipping box (very heavy duty) and how well everything was packed. Bravo to the packing guy. His/her use of extra pieces of cardboard and that staple gun is excellent. You have an excellent site. Great products and I love the reviews. You provide all the information so I can decide what works for me. Thanks, Kelly 320151

Couldn't be more pleased. prompt delivery, product as described, I had it on the back of my Highlander within an hour. The enclosed instructions aren;t extremely detailed and I used the picture more than the printed word. One word of advice for other infrequent tool handlers- Really, Really don't tighten the connections completely until all of the nuts and bolts are in place. I went back and forth a few times because I ignored this in the instructions. 114287



- C18100

by: Michael05/09/2016


Used this carrier a few times now. Very lightweight which is the main reason I purchased this one. Hangs nicely on the garage wall. Never really pushed the weight limit so cant speak to that. Normally used to carry gas cans, push mower, camp fire wood and similar things I dont want in my X5. Assembly was a little tricky, took longer than expected but no big deal. Never used in the winter, so no idea how it would handle road salt long term. 249271

by: Steve B10/05/2015


Great product. Very light and easy to mount on the rzr but holds a lot of weight. Put about 250 pounds or so on it and it didn't bend. Carried the load up the trail and didn't bend or break on me with all the bumps and bangs I hit. Loved the fact that it folded up when I unloaded it so it wasn't hanging out with nothing on it. Got back home and used it as a step to get into the back and clean up the rzr and felt solid as a rock. 229291

So far so good, the direction were fine and it went together rather well. I will be putting it to the test in a week, I can't see any problems. What I really like to review is the service,it is excellent, all questions were answered and the service was outstanding. The package came on time and not damaged. Etrailer does care about the customer, and they show it on all fronts. Thank you for the help, 123195

by: GlenL.03/27/2013


Great so far. Lightweight, assembled easily, and I love the use of locknuts for durable assembly. But there was an error in the assembly sheet: The 8 short bolts holding the 2 halves of the rack together are shown with the heads on the outside and the sharp bolt ends inside the cargo area. The pic on the box was correct. the rest of the instructions were difficult to understand; more pix would help. 72774



- C18100

by: Jean06/28/2016


The hitch was poorly designed, between the play in the receiver, the pin and the hitch, the thing droops off the back of the car by a good 5 to 8 degrees even unloaded. Good engineering would have accounted for the bolt clearances and adjusted the bolt locations, so the level position could be acomplished. The hinge pin should have been 1/16th higher then the unit would ride level on the car. 266016

Great product. It is lightweight, but strong. The included rotation mount to turn up 90 deg is great. My previous one, I had to use an additional product to turn it up. It weighed as much as this whole unit. I added reflectors and reflective tape on it. The predrilled holes for tie downs are great. So far, I love this product. 89510

Product is a Great Buy and well suited for my purpose too. Assembly instructions were a little out of whack but, I was ale to look at the pictures and do the total assembly prior to tightening all the bolts and nuts. It's ability to carry 500 lbs. and yet be so light to install on the vehicle is absolutely phenominal. 31639

Product is as described. Not too bad to assemble. Very light weight, but strong. Love that it is aluminum and you don't have to hassle with the weight and the rust! Definitely recommend the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock however to take some of the motion out of it. 269159

Does not fold up on my 2013 Subaru Outback. I did not pay attention to the distance from center of hitch pin hole to closest edge of carrier when carrier is folded up . It has a Hidden Hitch Class III 2" #87568. I will probably use it, just never fold it up. 125920

Easy to put together, my 15 year old son followed the directions and he put the whole thing together, with my supervision. Works great and I love themaster lock hitch lock set I bought from etrailer as well. Great price and product. 24900

The cargo carrier was what I was looking for. Light weight for ease of installing on vehicle. The only issue was the pivot bolt for fold up feature was 1/2" to short, needs to be 3-1/2" long. The 7683 receiver lock works good. 9531

Purchases a hitch and wire harness from you. Like my two other purchases everything fit and worked as expected. Any and all future purchases will be with etrailer. Keep up the great work. I rate you five out of five stars. 288767

Fits great on either my car or truck. Looking forward to fill it up with whitetails! Love that it folds up and is light weight, that's why I bought it. I did add some reflective tape for night time visibility. 309908

This is a nice lightweight carrier, but it's not all aluminum. It does have some steel parts, but they appear to be power coated well. It's easy to assemble, and well made. Time will tell if rust will be a problem 6269

We had a metal cargo carrier that was so heavy we were getting to the point we could hardly get it on with two people. Saw this one out on the road and ordered it right away. What an improvement!! Love it. 294889

I bought this over 2 years ago, along with the anti-rattle device. Absolutely excellent product with no defects or problems. I've used it for multiple long-distance trips. I'd buy it again in a second! 84145

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier
Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Aluminum vs. Steel Cargo Carrier are there Any Disadvantages for Aluminum Construction
  • You are correct there is a weight advantage for aluminum, item # C18100, over steel, item # CC-100, but the biggest reason aluminum is considered over steel, for most of our customers, is corrosion resistance and appearance. You do not need to upkeep the carrier with spray paint every couple of years with aluminum like you do steel. As far as disadvantages, there really are none. As long as the weight capacity of the aluminum carrier is rated the same as the steel carrier they will both...

  • Raising a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Out of Exhaust Path on a Buick Enclave
  • On any vehicle that has exhaust that exits straight out the back and not out the side or towards the ground could potentially damage a trailer hitch mounted item and its contents. I believe I have a great solution for you though. To get enough distance from the exhaust you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210 and that will get you plenty far from the exhaust. For a carrier, if using the multipurpose ball mount, you can use any carrier that fits a 2 inch receiver. The receiver portion...

  • Light Kit and License Plate Bracket Recommendation for a Curt Cargo Carrier
  • It would require a little drilling, but I would recommend you get a Draw-Tite Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 6504. This kit comes with a license plate bracket also. Once you drilled holes to install the # 6504 on the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18100 it would install pretty easily and work very well. The Tow Package Wiring Harness # 118251 would also be the correct harness for your 2008 Ford Escape. I linked installation instructions and an installation video for you to check out as well.

  • Compatability of Curt Carrier C18100 and Curt Hitch #13060 on a 2012 Subaru Tribeca
  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, part # C13069, is a good fit for your Subaru Tribeca. This hitch comes complete with hardware and requires no welding to install. I measured the distance from the mounting flange to the center of the hitch pin hole and it measures approximately 3-7/8 inches. The 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18100 may be a fit for the hitch depending on the clearance. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front edge of the carrier when folded...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2012 Subaru Outback With a 7 Inch Clearance
  • We had this cargo carrier sitting in our studio so I measured the distance between the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier platform and it is 6 inches. If your 2012 Subaru Outback requires 7 inches of clearance, then this rack will not work. We do have a number of cargo carriers that will clear the 7 inch clearance you need. The Surco Folding Cargo Carrier, # 52018F, measures 9-3/16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge on the folding...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a Class C Itasca Navion 25k Motorhome
  • I would recommend you get either a 20x60 Railed Cargo Carrier, part # C18150, or for a little more money you could get the very lightweight Curt 20x60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, part # C18100. The Curt 20x48 Cargo Carrier, part # C18145, you referenced is not designed to handle the harsher ride at the rear of motorhomes and I would not recommend you purchase it. You may also be interested in a Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 7683, as a theft deterrent. I attached a review...

  • Does Curt Folding Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 Have License Plate Mounting Holes, Does it Rattle
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt regarding the Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # C18100. She stated that there are no holes specifically for mounting a license plate. However, what can be done is to drill the necessary holes if needed. If any of the holes line up, you can use them for a license plate. There will be some rattle or play at the folding bracket. It can be kept to a minimum with all the hardware installed and tightened properly. With any folding carrier, there will always...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Aluminum Cargo Carrier Availability
  • Yes, we carry aluminum cargo carriers. Check out the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 or the Curt Carrier # C18100. Since these carriers are aluminum they will not rust and they will be light weight. The Rola Expandable Cargo Bag # 59102 that you referenced would work great in either carrier also.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier For 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The folding hitch-mounted cargo carriers we offer are for Class lll or Class lV hitches. You will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make sure you do not exceed the tongue weight capacity for your Outback. The tongue weight is the weight of the cargo you are carrying added to the weight of the cargo carrier you use. One of the lighter cargo carriers we offer is the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18100. This aluminum carrier measures 19 X 60 inches and weighs just...

  • What Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2013 Chevrolet Equinox for Use With a Cargo Carrier
  • Your 2013 Chevrolet Equinox can be equipped with two different sizes of trailer hitch receiver, either a 1-1/4-inch or a 2-inch. Since loaded coolers can be fairly heavy I will suggest you go with a 2-inch hitch to give you the maximum carrying capacity for your coolers and other tailgating essentials. We offer the Draw-Tite # 75270, which has a 675-lb tongue weight rating. This will be more than adequate for the weight of a cargo carrier plus your coolers and other gear. This bolt-on...

  • How to Make a Tail Light Kit for the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18100
  • I may have a few parts that you can piece together to install tail lights on the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18100, but Curt does not offer a tail light kit that will fit this carrier. If you are interested in the slim LED lights, you could install two of the Optronics Sealed LED Thin Line Lights, # STL69RCB, on each side of the carrier. You could route the wires through the existing hole and would only have to drill the holes for the mounting screws. Once you have the lights mounted,...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-150 With Minimum Tailgate Interference
  • Hitch mount cargo carriers were certainly not designed to be used as a step, but I will admit that I have used a cargo carrier to climb into the back of a truck before. The weight capacity should not be an issue since each of the cargo carriers you mentioned have a weight capacity of 500 lbs, but the wobble could make the step uneasy if you do not step directly in the center of the cargo carrier. You should also keep in mind that the floor of the cargo carrier is metal and moisture could...

  • Recommendation For Cargo Net To Use on the Curt 20 x 60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # C18100
  • For a cargo net on your Curt 20 x 60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, part # C18100, I would recommend the Cargo Net, part # C18202, or the Thule Cargo Net, part # TH692. Both of these cargo nets would work fine on your Curt cargo carrier. I am including a link to a video review on the Thule cargo net.

  • Recommendation for Largest Aluminum Folding Cargo Carrier and Waterproof Bag
  • Thanks! We work very hard to keep a killer website and I'm glad that you found it helpful. The 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18100, is a great option. This carrier is constructed of durable aluminum making it light weight and rustproof. For added convenience, this carrier folds up and out of the way when not in use. I recommend that you take a couple measurements on your 2012 BMX X5 to make sure that the carrier will clear the rear bumper when using the folding feature. Measure from...

This carrier weighs just 30 lbs, but has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. You will want to make sure you do not exceed the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle so you will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership. We do have a Lowest Price Pledge.

  • Folding Cargo Carrier for a 2005 Honda Element that Allows the Back Hatch To Open Up When Folded
  • The Curt 20x60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # C18100, has 5 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier when folded up and this carrier is 21 inches tall from the top of the receiver opening to the tallest part of the carrier when folded up. I went out to the warehouse, put together one of these carriers, and produced a short video showing the dimensions I mentioned and explaining how you could measure to determine if the upper part...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier For 2013 Ford Flex
  • I did some research and found the towing capacity of your Flex is 2,000-lbs. This means the tongue weight capacity will be from 200 to 300-lbs max. That would be the weight of the carrier added to the weight of any cargo in the carrier. I recommend going with an aluminum carrier to take advantage of the lighter weight. The carrier I recommend is the carrier you came from, part # C18100. This is a 19 x 60-inch carrier and weighs just 29-lbs. That gives you a bit of flexibility for your...

  • Can CURT Aluminum Cargo Carrier be Used with a Hitch Extended on a 2010 Toyota Tacoma
  • First, I need to tell you that the use of a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. It looks like the hitches for a 2010 Toyota Tacoma have a 500 pound tongue weight capacity. With a hitch extender that capacity will be reduced to 250 pounds. If this is acceptable then will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the basket, which should be about 8 inches, on the carrier. You could then use # 80307....

  • 19x53 Rola Cargo Carrier # 59500 Interferes with Spare Tire When Opening Tailgate on Jeep Wrangler
  • Since you are having an issue with the 19x53 Rola Cargo Carrier, # 59500, coming in contact with your spare tire when trying to open the tailgate, take a look at the 18 Inch Hitch Extender, # HE18. This will move the carrier 18 inches further away from your Jeep and may give you sufficient clearance room for the spare tire. Please keep in mind that using a hitch adapter will reduce the overall capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. Unfortunately, the RoadMaster High-Low Drop, # RM-072-2,...

  • Recommended Cargo Bag for Curt # C18100 Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The best way to protect your luggage from rain and snow would be to use a cargo bag, like part # 59102. The bag is perfectly sized to fit your Curt # C18100 cargo carrier. The bag is expandable from 9.5 to 11.5 cubic feet of storage space, and is rainproof unless you find yourself in a torrential downpour. This is why we recommend wrapping anything you carry in the bag that can't get wet in plastic. Although the bag is designed for a railed carrier, you could use the struts under the cargo...

  • Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2011 Hyundai Tucson
  • There are some measurements you will need to take to determine if the Curt cargo carrier, # C18131, will fit when folded up on your 2011 Hyundai Tucson. First, measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. On Curt cargo carrier # C18100, it measures only 5 inches from hitch pin hole to the rails when folded up so it may not be the best option. I do not recommend using an extension because doing so will reduce the...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Bike Adapter to Carry Two Bikes on Rear of Travel Trailer
  • I don't recommend using a folding carrier on the rear of a travel trailer, and here's why. Due to the stiffer suspension and the long rear overhang (distance between the rear axle and the back bumper) any accessory installed in a hitch at the rear of a travel trailer will be subjected to much more severe bouncing and jarring forces than would be experienced if the accessory were installed in a hitch on a passenger vehicle. The folding portion of the carrier is a likely failure point, which...

  • Recommended Aluminum Cargo Carrier For 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • For an aluminum cargo carrier, I recommend the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches, # C18100. It has a 500 lb capacity and yet only weighs 29 lbs, so it is easy to install and remove when not in use. It has pre-drilled holes along the sidewalls to offer tie-down points. It has a mesh floor, so it is easy to clean. I contacted Curt manufacturing and they suggested that you check your clearance as people will often scrape their cargo carrier on hills or inclines because people don't...

  • Recommended Lightweight Cargo Carrier for 2014 Ford Flex
  • We offer two different lightweight aluminum cargo carriers, the Curt folding 19x60 inch model, part # C18100 or the 20x47 inch MaxxTow you referenced, part # MT70108. Both carriers weigh just under 30 lbs and are the lightest cargo carriers we offer. Either carrier would be compatible with your Flex, but since you mentioned that you were more interested in a 60 inch wide carrier, the Curt model might be your best bet. Since the C18100 is rather long, it is important that when the carrier...

  • When this Curt 20x60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 is folded up it measures 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest edge of the carrier. If you need more clearance than that you would want a Draw-Tite Hitch Cargo Carrier # 6502. This carrier has 7-1/2 inches of clearance when folded up.

  • Recommendation for a Straight Shank Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier with a Ramp, Toyota Tundra
  • We do have several hitch mounted cargo carriers that have a ramp, but the Curt 20x60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # C18100, does not come with a ramp. I have included a link to all of the hitch mounted cargo carriers we have that fit 2 inch trailer hitches and have a ramp. The Brophy Hitch Cargo Carrier, # MSCR, has a fold down ramp and the deck sets right on top of the straight shank so there is no rise to worry about when placing items in the carrier.

  • Recommended Rightline Rooftop Cargo Bag for 2016 Honda Pilot
  • Exhaust heat can be a concern when using certain accessories like hitch cargo carriers. We recommend at least a foot of clearance between the exhaust tip and the nearest part of the carrier to avoid heat damage to the carried items. If the vehicle has an exhaust tip that turns outward (away from the carrier) then this tends to reduce the concern over heat. Since you're looking to add incremental storage capacity to your current set-up I suggest using a roof-mounted cargo bag along with...

Then measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If the measurement is less then 5 inches, the carrier will fit when folded.
