Toyota Matrix Hitch Cargo Carrier Questions

  • I am very glad you found us! I can start with hitches. For your 2008 Toyota Matrix, there are 2 types of hitches available. There are class I and class II trailer hitches. Both have a 1-1/4 inch square receiver opening. A class II trailer hitch has a higher capacity and will have more accessory options, so I would go with a class II if you plan on using a cargo carrier. You can use Curt Trailer Hitch, # C12013, which will fit all models of the 2008 Matrix. I have included a...

  • The Curt Class II receiver hitch you referenced, part # 12221 will indeed fit your 2010 Matrix. The Thule Transporter Enclosed Cargo Carrier you mentioned, part # TH665C will work with that hitch. This being said, using the items together on your vehicle will not necessarily be a good idea. From my research, I have found that Toyota has listed the towing capacity of the Matrix as being 1500 lbs. Tongue weight capacity is typically 10 percent of the towing capacity. This would...

  • The cargo carrier I recommend is the Pro Series # 6500. It weighs 49 lbs. It has a maximum weight capacity of 300 lbs on a Class II hitch. The shank can also be adjusted in 2 inch increments from 5-1/4 inches to 11-1/4 inches away from the center of the hitch pin hole on your vehicles hitch. This adjustment will allow it to clear the bumper or anything else located on the rear of your Matrix. You should not have any problem opening the rear hatch on your Matrix. The position of...

  • The 295-lb dry weight of your Yamaha WR250R dirt bike is well within the 400-lb maximum capacity of the Rage PowerSport Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part # AMC400. However, this 2-inch hitch size is not offered for your 2006 Toyota Matrix; only 1-1/4-inch Class I and Class II hitches are made for your car. The highest-rated hitch for your car is rated at 250-lbs tongue weight (TW) which is downward force on the hitch. Even without the 35-lb weight of the...

  • The Curt # C18153 cargo tray you referenced is only compatible with a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. The hitches available for your Matrix XR are Class I or II that have a 1-1/4 by 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. There are adapters available that allow you to use a 2 inch accessory in a 1-1/4 inch receiver, but using them cuts the tongue weight capacity of the hitch (maximum amount of downward force that can be safely applied without damaging the hitch) is reduced...

Toyota Matrix Roof Cargo Carrier Questions

  • I contacted our representative at Yakima, and she informed me that she was not certain if the Yakima Rocket Box, part # Y07192, was compatible with Thule Rapid Aero Load Bars, part # THRB43, since they have not test fitted the Thule Aero bars yet. I then walked out to our warehouse to test fit the part # Y07192, with the Thule Rapid Aero Load Bars, part # THRB43. I found that the Thule Aero Bars work great with the Yakima RocketBox, part # Y07147. Yes, the Yakima RocketBox,...

  • I checked with Thule and if you were to use the AeroBlade roof rack (# THARB47 for the bars, # TH480R for the feet, and # THKIT1512 for the fit kit) then you can use the Pulse L cargo box, # TH615, and not have any rear hatch interference. I have included video links to the cargo box and roof rack installation on a similar vehicle for you.

  • You have a couple of options. First, you can use a bag of your choice, even if it is longer than the bar spread on your 2013 Toyota Matrix. The bag will sag in the middle but there is no way around it for this set up. To protect the roof where the bag will sag you can use protective pad # RL100650. And the second option is to use a roof mount cargo basket, # Y07070, and attach the bag to it. The basket is a direct fit to the factory roof rack on your Matrix. And yet a third...

  • The mounting feet in the Rhino Rack cargo box # RRRMFZ66 do slide forwards or backwards some to provide more clearance for the rear hatch on the 2011 Toyota Matrix. However, the antenna may also be in the way and may need to be removed or bent down for a box to fit. What you might be interested in is a cargo bag, like # 59100. This bag can sit on or in between the crossbars (if there is space) and provides 15 cubic feet of storage space. With this bag mounted you should not...
