We provide a wide selection of cargo carriers to haul large items via your trailer hitch. In comparison with roof mounted cargo carriers, hitch mounted cargo carriers are more aerodynamic because they operate behind the vehicle. With less wind resistance, hitch mounted cargo carriers allow for better gas mileage, thus saving you money. They also offer the advantage of easy access to your cargo load, as opposed to having to reach up to the roof to grab it. There are several types of hitch mounted cargo carriers for different applications.
To use a hitch mounted cargo carrier properly, you will need a trailer hitch. All hitch mounted cargo carriers fit one of two trailer hitch sizes: 1-1/4" (Class I and II) and 2" (Class III and larger). Trailer hitches with a 2" x 2" opening support more weight than 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" trailer hitches, but both offer many features to help transport your belongings safely and securely. Hitch mounted cargo carriers slide easily into the square receiver opening of a trailer hitch and are held in place with a pin and clip or a trailer hitch lock. You may also want to visit our Help page to determine your hitch size - or use our Hitch Hunter to find exactly the right hitch for your vehicle.

I am very impressed with the speed that I received my cargo rack. The day after ordering, it was already updated for shipping, and then here it is, only 5 days later. Thanks a million!
