How much does this item weigh? I bought a Curt hitch from you for 2010 Corolla. It says it can take a tongue weight of 200lbs. Do I factor in the cargo carrier weight to that limit and add the cargo as well?
asked by: Jim
The 20x48 Cargo Carrier, item # 6500, weighs 47 pounds. Yes you must factor in the weight of the cargo carrier and cargo and any items loaded behind the rear axle of the car. You also need to check your vehicle maximum tongue weight rating and use the lowest maximum rating of the vehicle, hitch or cargo carrier as the weight that can be carried in the receiver hitch.
If you have a 200 pound max tongue weight rating and no items loaded in the vehicle behind the rear axle then you could carry 153 pounds safely on the, #6500, cargo carrier.
