Can I use the cargo carrier to mount a 2 receiver bike rack?
asked by: Mike H
With the 24x60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153, installed in the trailer hitch, you will not be able to install anything else in the hitch and nothing can be installed in the tubing in the cargo carrier. What you could do is use the Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192. However, the bikes will be hanging above the cargo carrier, limiting the amount of space on the carrier.
Also this adapter/extension has a tongue weight rating of 350 pounds. This means that the cargo carrier, cargo, bike rack and bikes cannot have a total weight of more than 350 pounds.
Part # D-192 was designed for use with a tow bar to tow a vehicle, and the upper opening for a bike rack or cargo carrier. Using a bike rack and cargo carrier at the same time could overload the tongue weight rating.
