Curt 17x46 Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche, we're going to do a test fit on the 17 x 46 Curt Cargo Carrier. Now as you can see here, they have designed this for use with inch and a quarter or with the hardware two inch hitches, part number on it is C18145. Now this compact cargo carrier is still going to offer us a very large five hundred pound weight capacity, so you're not giving up anything other than a little bit of space with it as compared to some of the other ones. The first step is that we need to slide the shank into the receiver tube of our hitch and line up our threaded hole with our hitch pinhole. With those in line, we've got an anti-rattle bolt which is provided. We're going to place that in and begin threading it through. As you can see, when we just have it hand tight, we've still got some play and some movement to our carrier.
