License Plate Light Kit for Enclosed Cargo Carriers - 59117

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (13 Customer Reviews)

Easy to install. Just be careful feeding the wire from the marker light to the Plate light. Get a coat hanger. 863286

Very pleased with our new tote it was in great condition and it will make our travels so much easier . 764980

Easy to install and works great 745726

The license plate light worked as expected. It installed on the unit easily and was plug and play once you routed the wires. It is a little scary pulling the taillights out because you are not sure how they attach to the unit, but they simply snug into the rubber housing. I found it easier to pull the taillights out from the bottom first by rocking them slightly if it helps. They probably mentioned in one of the videos, but I did not have a chance to watch them. An overall great experience with etrailer.com and would not hesitate to buy from them in the future. 635189

Instructions were clear to install. A little tricky to fish the wire, but definitely a DIY project. 579699

I WOULD HAVE GLADLY RATED THIS CARRIER WITH 5+ STARS; IT IS EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY, except for the locks. IMO, they are too lightweight for a carrier of this value, not only in terms of securing it’s cargo from theft, but also in ease of use. I find it difficult inserting the keys into the locks to operate them. To alleviate my concern for securing the carrier and cargo from theft, I use a 20’ locking cable system when leaving it overnight. With that said, I would (and have) highly recommend this carrier to others. 442591

Product was broken when it arrived. Wires were ripped away from contacts. 417629

Easy to install, light works great. I just wish there was a more robust option for the license plate mount itself. 403461

A very great addition to hauling capability for a Jeep Wrangler JK. Would have given 5 stars except for factory latches. The ones in the front were replaced with more robust latches. Went on 800 mile trip, some in rain, and had no issues. License plate light (59117) works well also. 402602

- 59117

The license plate light kit installed easily per instructions and works great! It does require a 1" hole to route the already installed wire harness from the left tail light. I already had a 1" hole saw so no problem for me. 362264

This is my second order with you and I am very satisfied with your service 141701

sorry for taking so long to reply, but been busy. As you can see from the pictures attached the box is installed and works very good. I have a few comments on it and how it goes together. The main part went together very well and quite quickly, it does take two people for the most part, which is no big issue, my main concern is why the licence plate light is not supplied with the box, already installed, as this is necessary in most states/ provinces and therefore should already be part of the complete box assembly. The other concern is the quality of locks provided on the box and the rack. The ones provided are very inferior to those provided on the Thule box. To date I've not used the box on a trip, but feel it will work very well. 95248

One point to add to my last comment, is that Ive added an extra foam sealer around the lid and today have had no issues of water inside the box. A cheap addition that works. At least so far.

  • Swing Away Cargo Carrier on Rear of a Pleasureway Excel Class B RV

  • Cargo Carrying Options For 2014 Honda Odyssey Van
    I spoke with my contact at Thule about your 2014 Honda Odyssey. With no side rails or crossbars on the roof they do have a few roof rack options that fit but you're requried to drill into the van. I've linked the selection for you. If you have the raised side rails, I recommend the Thule Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R, 60" WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711520, as well as locks # TH450400. This kit mounts directly to the side rails and includes locks to secure the rack to your vehicle. ...

  • Is Replacement Box for Thule Transporter Cargo Carrier Available?

  • Fit of Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier # 59109 on 2012 Honda Odyssey
    The Rola Swinging Cargo Carrier, part # 59109 would work very well in a 2 inch receiver hitch installed on your Odyssey. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75270.

The carrier has mounts so you can relocate the rear vehicle license plate, but a license plate light, part # 59117 is sold separately. You might also want a locking hitch...

  • Can Rola Enclosed Cargo Carrier 59110 Be Used in Hitch on Travel Trailer
    Rola's Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier # 59109 has no prohibition from use in a hitch on the rear of a travel trailer but the 2-inch hitch must be rated as Class III or Class IV and of course have a tongue weight (TW) capacity that exceeds the total weight of the loaded carrier. Since the carrier weighs about 80-lbs and can handle loaded cargo of up to 250-lbs, this means the hitch should be rated for at least 350-lbs. Since your Lance trailer's bumper is continuously welded it should be...

  • Enclosed Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2012 Nissan Pathfinder Allows Full Rear Cargo Access
    If you would be willing to consider the swing away version, the Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier, # 59109, would almost certainly allow you access to your hatch while it is still mounted on the back of your vehicle. In order for the hatch to clear the cargo box, the measurement from the center of your hitch receiver to the outer edge of your hatch would have to be less than 34 inches. I spoke with my contact at Rola and it is very unlikely that you would be able to fully open the...
