Video Transcript for Rola Swinging Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Review

The first feature of this we will show you is the most obvious one. It is a nice one piece all enclosed unit to carry all your materials in. As you can see it is all one piece construction with no seams, also there is a drain hole in case something does spring a leak inside. Also what is really nice about this is that this is actually two products in one. You have enclosed carrier and you also have a tray on the bottom that you can use to carry your equipment too that does not quite fit in the enclosed section. We will show you how to take that apart with the two latches at the bottom. If you notice there are a variety of slots all around the perimeter of the tray itself, those are there to put down your tie down hooks. Put them in there and they will catch on the side or vice versa and secure your cargo. One nice feature about this is the built in tail light assemblies in case what you are carrying blocks off the tail lights you have on your vehicle you always have those for back up. Also if you plan to keep your cargo carrier on your vehicle for extended vacation or something like that, some states require you not to have your license plate blocked. This unit has provisions where you can screws to attach a license plate right here and here so your plate would end up mounting about like this. Also on top, there is two dimples here for an additional accessory that you can install that will allow you to have a license plate light. One of the most obvious features also on this rack is the swing away portion of it. This is so you can get into the back of your vehicle if you need to. As you can see this is a full featured carrier, actually two carriers in one. Its size, shape and appearance goes with a lot of small SUVs out there. This part # 59109, the swing away cargo carrier.

Will suit my needs I purchased the swing away model. Its bulk requires two people to move safely when empty, though I have moved it myself. There is no point to having the unit for extra space but not being able to get to the back ½ of the vehicle. Defeats the purpose! The unit requires some assembly of the metal hitch mounted carrier to the plastic tray. The instructions recommend you mount the hitch into your car receiver and I echo that. During assembly, I ran into a problem. The washers that came with the unit were not correct. They sent eight ½ inch fender washers which could not be used. They sent four 3/8 inch washers which I actually needed 12 of. I had to purchase 8 more 3/8 washers to finish the assembly. Not a big deal, but inconvenient. It looks like they sent me a tilting hardware pack with the swing away model. I also purchased the license plate kit. This involved drilling a 1” hole in the tray. I was not thrilled about drilling the hole in my new tray. The other problem is that drilling the hole is not trivial. A 1” twist drill is probably not in everyone’s tool kit. You can not use a wood spade bit as it will drill a hole through the 2nd wall of the shell before you get the hole drilled in the 1st wall. I used a hole saw with no center tap. I drilled a piece of wood and used that to guide the saw into the tray where I wanted it. Other than that, the installation was straightforward. Upon opening the box I made the following observations. The shell of the pod seems adequate. I plan to use the pod for Ski trips and I hope that the plastic does not get to brittle in the cold weather. A cracked shell will render the unit worthless. I would like to have seen a better attempt at waterproofing the lid. Also, the pod drain in the literature is essentially a hole drilled in the bottom of the unit and a small friction fit plug you fit into it. Just seems flimsy to me. If the plug pops out, water could enter the unit without warning. The clips that hold the lid down and keep the pod in the tray look light to me. I have seen these types of brackets on my hardshell golf case and have had problems with them breaking. I suppose there is not a lot of stress on these but know from experience I will have to be careful in using them just the same. I especially feel that care will be needed when removing the pod from the tray. Be sure to close the clips on the pod bottom before putting the unit on the ground or you could break them. They hang down below the pod bottom. And don’t consider the clip’s locks as security locks. The locks will keep the clips from opening unexpectedly, but won’t keep a determined thief out for even one minute. I initially thought the removable pod and tray might be an asset. I now feel it to be a liability. I doubt I will ever use the tray without the pod, and now have a potential point of failure between the pod and tray. It does help to be able to remove the pod when mounting the hitch bracket as it is heavy and awkward. In all, I think this unit will meet all my needs. While I have some reservations about the Rola as noted, I seriously doubt I will have problems. Besides, it comes with a 5 year warranty! If I do have problems, then stay tuned as I will post back when I have more experience with the unit. 1041

sorry for taking so long to reply, but been busy. As you can see from the pictures attached the box is installed and works very good. I have a few comments on it and how it goes together. The main part went together very well and quite quickly, it does take two people for the most part, which is no big issue, my main concern is why the licence plate light is not supplied with the box, already installed, as this is necessary in most states/ provinces and therefore should already be part of the complete box assembly. The other concern is the quality of locks provided on the box and the rack. The ones provided are very inferior to those provided on the Thule box. To date I've not used the box on a trip, but feel it will work very well. 95249


We have now used he Rola to go to Florida twice and a good friend of ours has it back down in Florida for the balance of the winter. We love it, with the exception of the locks on the box. It is too bad that these are not the same of some other type of roof boxes that would make it much more secure and less of a concern when parked over night at a hotel motel. We have shown the box on the vehicle to several people and to my Lincoln Dealership, who has shared the pictures I sent to you will owners who are interested. All in all we are very happy. Cheers Al W. PS change the locks....UPDATE: One point to add to my last comment, is that Ive added an extra foam sealer around the lid and today have had no issues of water inside the box. A cheap addition that works. At least so far.

This is a really cool product. It was a piece of cake to assemble and even looks good! We have a Toyota Highlander and with the third row seat up, we have very little luggage room. The cargo carrier does not hold suit cases very well, due to it's size and shape. However, this problem is easily fixed by using duffle bags or something similar to store your clothes in. The only complaint I had with the product is that the zip ties that were supplied to tie down the wiring harness, were to short to do the job. Fortunately I had more on hand that were long enough so it wasn't an issue. The wiring harness was also to short to reach the connection on my vehicle. You'll want to hook up the carrier side 1st, then work your way back with the zip ties, tying it down. Then get an extension to go from the vehicle to the carrier. This may sound like a headache but it's really not. I always carry an extension on hand anyway because it's a common problem. Anyway, it's a great product and I highly recommend it. 187362

Important to note, ETrailer is a great supplier/st This review of the Rola is no reflection on them. Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier: Pros: -works for carrying items -having a removeable cargo box is convenient -swing arm is a real asset -nice looking Cons: -leaks when wet (to fix, put silicone sealer on the rivets which hold the lid on the carrier; mfg should have noted this but didn't) -the way the box hangs on the brackets is a little frightening as if the simple welds fail, especially the way it tends to bounch, the box may fall off and hit another vehicle... After owning this product for over 5 years, the welds are failing (there has been no more than 125lbs in the box at any one time). -locks are very hard to work and cheap. 50460

Nice Product I bought this product for my SUV. I haven’t used it yet, but the assembly was easy. Even though the product says it’s water resistant, I believe that with the size of the lip and the design that everything will stay dry like it was water proof. The only thing I wish the product company had done differently was to build a better license plate mount into the design; the attachment location is not the best. I don’t like the idea of drilling or using self tapping screws on my new box. The box is a nice size and will be a great addition on long trips with a large group. 3087

Stinks, leaks. Locks suck. Don't buy this unit. It is poorly constructed and the company won't stand by their warranty. The hinges on mine bent because they never used backers on their rivets and now it leaks. The locks are pieces of junk and half the time don't work. If they get these flaws fixed it is will be a great unit. Right now, stay away. 2534


I wont be purchasing one of these sad to say anytime soon. I have read everyone s comments and have concluded there is still work to be done to make this box worth purchasing. Thanks to all for their comments.

Our goal is to provide our existing customers feedback so that other customers can make an informed decision, (just as you have done). If you do not need the swing away option you might consider the Thule Transporter # TH665C
Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier - Tilting
. This offers many of the same features and is highly rated with our customers.

The swing-out feature for this product is an excellent idea. Works great! Installations is a snap. provides a good video that walks you thru the assembly/installation process - gives you a good how to demo. Good amount of storage capacity. A lot easier alternative to using my roof mount carrier. Would be nice if there was flag or some type of indicator on the unit to help the driver when backing up. 149189

Excellent Product Easy to assemble, everything works smoothly and all assembly holes line up perfectly. Just used this unit on our first family vacation, and even while loaded to the limit with heavy luggage the very heavy steel hinge handles the load with ease even in the full swing out position. The locks are on the lightweight side but with proper care should be no problem. 3496

Bad placement of Wiring harnes The heat of your exhaust melts the wiring harness. I also lost all the paint off that side of the post due to the heat of the exhaust. The ease of use and ability to open rear door in my opinion does not out weight the down side of the wires melting. 972

by: Brook06/08/2008

Could be better. This product is not weather resistant as stated. We have owned our product for 3 weeks and it has rained three times leaving approximately a half-inch of water on the bottom. This also fully soaked all of our luggage, and everything else we had in the carrier. 942

Extra Space Has the extra space I need for my minivan. I also use a dual hitch extension. It raise the cargo carrier (for better ground clearance) and it move it further back (allow opening the rear hatch without swinging the cargo carrier open). 3466

  • The Stowaway Max is an enclosed cargo carrier but we do not carry it. We do have the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110, for a fixed arm, tilting version. We also have a swing away version, # 59109. I have included links to videos on each of these carriers for you. We also have the Thule enclosed cargo carrier, # TH665C. It will fit Class II or III hitches. It tilts but does not swing out. I have linked a video review of this carrier as well.

  • Will Rola Hitch Cargo Carrier # 59109 Fit 2013 Dodge Durango Citadel With Factory Tow Package
  • The Rola Hitch Cargo Carrier # 59109 will fit your 2013 Dodge Durango Citadel providing your hitch receiver opening is 2 inches. This carrier is an awesome way to carry cargo without taking space away inside your vehicle. The other nice features are that it includes carrier locks and can hold up to 250 lbs of cargo. I have attached a brief assembly video for you. As a side note, I recommend checking out the Lets Go Aero Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # 63232. This will lock your carrier...

  • Can Rear Hatch Be Opened on 2014 Honda Odyssey Using Thule Transporter Enclosed Cargo Carrier
  • The Thule Transporter enclosed cargo carrier # TH665C tilts down at about a 45 degree angle but we have not tested it on a 2014 Honda Odyssey so I cannot say for sure if it will allow the rear hatch to open. Based on the dimensions of the box and how close it will be to the vehicle when mounted it would be unlikely that you would be able to open the rear hatch with the carrier installed. Another option is the Rola swing away cargo carrier, # 59109. This is a great option provided your...

  • The Rola Cargo Carrier Swinging Arm Assembly # 10421 that you referenced is only designed as a replacement assembly for the swinging carrier part # 59109. If you have a the tilting version of this carrier part # 59110 that does not swing away this product would not work for you.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Swinging Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendations for 2006 Dodge Sprinter
  • There are swinging bike racks and swinging cargo carriers but not one that has both combined into one unit. Swinging bike racks come in 4-bike options. I recommend the Thule Vertex, # TH9031XT. It as many of the same features of the Apex minus the more advanced cradles and the anti-rattle hub but at a more reasonable price. I have linked a video review for you. For a swinging carrier there are a couple of options. There is an enclosed carrier, # 59109, and a platform carrier, # SC500-AL105....

  • Enclosed Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 GMC Acadia
  • For a hitch mounted, enclosed carrier for your 2013 GMC Acadia your best option would be the Rola Swinging Enclosed Carrier part # 59109 that you referenced. This carrier will give you complete cargo area access unlike the other styles of hitch mounted carriers. This carrier uses a 4-way harness to activate the taillights of it. Since you have a 7-way you will need a 7-way to 4-way adapter like the part # HM47365. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out also.

  • Cargo Carrying Options for a 2004 Ford Explorer Rear Wheel Drive with a 4.0 Liter V6
  • Cargo solutions for your 2004 Ford Explorer will include both hitch-mounted and roof-mounted carriers.

I can provide you with recommendations for both. You will first want to verify the weight capacities of your hitch receiver and roof. All trailer hitches we offer for your Explorer are 2-inch Class...

  • Clearance Behind Rear Mounted Spare Tire On 2007 Hummer H2 For Rola Cargo Carrier 59109
  • To determine if there is enough clearance from the rear mounted spare tire on your 2007 Hummer H2 for the Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier, part # 59109, you will want to take a couple measurements. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge, like a yardstick or a dowel. Hold the straight edge vertically against the back of the spare tire, and make sure the straight edge extends below the hitch pin hole on your hitch. Then measure the distance from the center of the hitch...
