Video Transcript for Surco Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the 20x48 Surco Cargo Carrier. This is designed for use in Class 1 or Class 2 hitches so it's got the 1 shank. It offers a 300 pound weight capacity. It's part number is 52017. This basket style cargo carrier is going to allow us to get extra gear out of the car onto the carrier to free up some room inside for passengers are pets. It also helps to keep the wet and muddy items out of your vehicle and let that drain out through the mesh floor. The carriers very easy to assemble.

It comes in three pieces and requires just three bolts in the shank and one bolt here on each side in the middle to put it together. It's made of a sturdy steel construction that has a powder coat finish that's going to help resist corrosion. The 5 1/2 inch raised rails that go all the way around the edge are going to help keep your cargo in place as well as offering us very good tie-down connection points. Now that we've gone over some of the key features of our carrier let me show you how to install it on your vehicle. To begin well slide the shank of the carrier right into the receiver tube of our hitch. Well slide it in far enough to where we line up our pinholes.

With those in line were going to take a standard pin for 1 hitches. This part number is PC2. You can check it out on our website. Were going to slide that through and secure it here on the other side using our clip.As you can see the carriers going to have a very nice mesh floor that's very easy to clean. Your dirt and debris is not going to rest on top of it.

You can just simply hose it off right through the bottom. The carrier is made completely in the United States, and there's also an optional light kit thats available for it, just in case your cargo comes up and covers up your taillights. It simply mounts on the back here. That part number is 52014 and it is sold separately. Now were going to load up some gear and show you what this thing looks like in action out on our test course. Well start by going through the shalom which will give you a really good look at the side to side action maybe while you're turning or doing some basic manoeuvres.

Well then head over to the alternating bumps so you can see the twisting motion of the rack as if you we're hitting a curve or maybe a pothole. Then well go into the regular speed bumps where we can see that up and down action. Thats going to complete todays look at the Surco 20x48 Cargo Carrier, part number 52017. .

As others have said, cable is too short - get the 12" extension (or make your own). It's the driver side light wire - it needs to be about 18" longer. It would be the perfect length then. As it is, even with the 12" extension, it doesn't attach to the receiver bar, just dangles from the zip tie on the rack to the socket on the truck. Also, do yourself a favor and buy a bag of black 4" zip ties locally to do the job neatly. Kit only includes eight zip ties and they are large. As another noted, the screws do strip out of the light housing where the mounting bracket attaches to them. The bracket on one of mine was loose in the box while the other was attached. All I did was go in my parts drawer of machine screws, find four (two each light) that were about the same coarse thread and about 1/2" to 5/8" long and re-attach the mounting bracket. Once done, the lights are bright enough, look professionally done, and should be fine. A wish list: - As another noted was that these be LED, but that's minor. - Change the mounts so they can be mounted within the frame or easily removed for storage. You naturally want to set the cargo rack with the hitch up, but that would place these on the concrete supporting the weight of the rack. As it is, you need to remove 4 screws from the plastic bracket and unplug them. 18482

5 stars per usual for etrailer efficiency and quick turn around. This time though I have to give about 3-1/2 stars to the product. The good part: lights are bright and the wiring was correct. With some adjustments they now reside on our rack. The not so good part: the lights are pretty fragile. They included screws that were a smaller diameter than the holes so I used stainless self-tapping. They included extra parts( brackets) which show me they had a packaging screw-up. Chinese weren't on top of their game this go around... All in all, they work and they provide me with some lights on our luggage rack. I'll keep ordering from etrailer because I like how they operate. Bud 409456

Used these on the Curt cargo carrier 24×60, just drilled a couple of holes to mount them to the carrier and also bought the HM47065, Coiled 7 pin to 4 because like the other reviews said the wire they give you isn't long enough. These were perfect for what I needed. Also, really great company, great customer service and very fast shipping, had all my orders 3 days after I ordered. 119841

First off I would like to recommend etrailer. Very professional...The carrier light kit was not so much. Others had mentioned the harness was too short.. not for me.. Very good fit.. The mounting system, while a great concept, was very poor.. I was very careful trying to tighten down the sandwich mount but the mounts came off the light so another method was needed.. I followed another customers advice and used anchors in the fixtures and drilled holes into my carrier.. I bought this kit for the mounting function but that didn't pay off.. If I had to do it over, and I still might, I would have bought mounting brackets and the 6.5 inch lights with harness...A little more work but a proven method of installing lights.. 518228

This kit works, but not in the configuration delivered. If you purchase this, be prepared to find an alternate method to mount the lights. You will likely need to modify the cargo carrier to make this work. The lights are sealed units that are normally flush mounted on larger trailers. Mounts have been added with self-tapping screws that easily strip out of the housing and the mounts fall off the lights. The screws in the kit were smaller in diameter than the holes in the mounts, both front and back, making them useless. I tried attaching the lights using zip ties and just the mount on the light portion, but that failed when the mount screws stripped out of the lights. I did not have the issue with the wiring being too short like other reviewers. My wiring was actually a little too long. To actually install this kit reliably, here what you need: - Silicone - Super Glue - Screwdriver (Flat or Phillips Depending on Screw Choice) - Wire Cutters (To Cut the Ends off of Anchors) - 9/32" Drill Bit - 4x #6x1.5" Machine Screw - 4x #6x0.75" Anchors How I installed mine: 1. Remove the plastic bracket supplied with the light. Fill the holes with silicone so that the lights are sealed again. Check in a couple minutes to ensure that the silicone didn't drip through. Add more as needed until the hole is filled. 2. Trim the ends off of your anchors so that they fit in the two plastic circles on the back of the lights. Just a little bit will do. Test fit them to make sure they go all the way in. Once you're sure they fit, super glue just the bevel at the top to the light. This is to prevent them from turning in the hole because the plastic on the light is really smooth. 3. Drill two 9/32" holes in the rear upright bars of the carrier. Make the holes 1/4" from the edge so you can still connect the wiring. Space the holes at 2 5/16". The holes need to go through the front and back of the uprights. 4. Put the screws through the back holes pointing outwards. Once the super glue has dried, screw the screws into the anchors. 5. Connect the wiring per the supplied instructions. 415514

Purchased the 52014 kit to be installed on a Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier - C18153. As mentioned by previous buyers, it was an easy install on the carrier. - Remove the screws from the light. - Drill two holes into each side of the cargo carrier. - Secure the screws back on the lights with a little gorilla glue to strengthen the hold. - Wrap the exposed wires in split loom tubing wire conduit. - Test the unit, and then secure conduit with cable ties and wrap all exposed joints with electrical tape for good measure. Based on others' feedback that the wires were too short, I purchased WHCETR1B (thinking the wires were slightly longer). It turned out the wires were the same length as the kit (I kept it as a back up). It also turned out that it wasn't necessary because the kit fit perfectly on the carrier secured to my Honda Pilot. The lights are bright. We'll see how well it performs over long-term. When I noticed the cargo blocked the car's lights, I found myself in a pinch get this this ordered, delivered and installed in four days leading up to vacation. eTrailer shipped the product immediately, it came in good condition, installed in 30-45 minutes, and it worked! 548718

I just needed a cheap light kit for a cargo carrier, these work well. Did't get five stars because one of the lights had self-tapping sheet metal screws holding (or attempting to hold) the black bracket to the light assembly. The screws were too short, not a big deal, I had some screws at hand to replace them. The other light had the proper screws installed. 570244

Well I will have to say I like the concept . But there are a few things that need to be corrected first of all the screws that are given to you to use her all wrong and I do mean all of them . the screws that are used for the brackets actually started breaking up the plastic , after trying two I stopped and found some better thinner more appropriate screws . After getting it all together I realize the lights were loose took it apart and found that the self tapping screws for the bracket to the light are two short found screws same size same length but with the threads all the way to the end and it seems to be holding OK . 476211



- 52014
by:

The product is a good concept. The mounting of the lights was the problem. The plastic mounts and the screws were incompatible, so I had to drill holes in my cargo carrier and screw directly through the holes into the back of the light fixture. Perhaps a redesign to use zip ties would work better. 411079

This Light Kit was very easy to install on my cargo carrier. I only have one complaint. I have the 24 x 60 cargo carrier with the folding arm extension. Wth the folding arm, the 4 wire flat connector was too short to connect to my Jeep. I had to purchase a 12 inch 4 wire extension. Once hooked up to my jeep, the lights worked great. The lights are big and very bright. 9872

Great Product Got this for the Surco 24x60 folding cargo carrier for use on a 2005-CR-V. Easy installation and is a great safety addition to the carrier which extends back about 3 ft from the rear door. If I had to wish for something different, it would be nice to be a LED kit rather than incandescent, but not a major issue. Very pleased so far. Thanks! 2858

Needed Addition to Basket This is a perfect and much needed addition to the Cargo Basket. Taller items in the cargo basket can block the regular lights. One note: the wiring harness is too short if you use the Folding Basket Adapter. You will need a 12" extender found at larger auto-parts stores. 1424

  • Will The 24x60 Cargo Carrier E98874 Block the Tail Lights on a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier part # E98874 is not too wide for your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe. However, I believe what you may be concerned with is the cargo carrier blocking the tail lights while folded up. If that is the case then what you will want to do is measure outward 30" from the center of the trailer hitch. That will give you a good idea of where the edge of the basket will sit that way you can see if your tail light will be visible. The other option you have is to install...

  • Actually, there's very little difference between the two. Both have the same dimensions as well as the same 500 lb capacity (limited by the capacity of your hitch, of course). The Curt # C18153 has the advantage of being seriously less expensive, plus the shank is a bit longer, offering more clearance between the vehicle and the basket when it's folded up (9 inches for the Curt versus 5 inches for the Surco. The Surco has a purpose-built taillight kit, part # 52014 while for the Curt,...

This is my recommendation because there is not a motorcyle carrier for Class I trailer hitches due to their tongue capacity rating.

The total inside width is 60 inches. Weight capacity is 500 pounds. You may also want to consider a cargo carrier light kit if the items on the carrier will obscure the vehicle taillights.

  • Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier, Light Kit and License Plate Bracket Recommendations

But we do have other carriers that do fold and that you can add a light kit and license plate bracket to. Take a look at the Surco carrier, # 52018F. This is a 24 x 60 inch carrier, it folds, and you can add light kit # 52014. I have included a link to a video review for you. For a license plate bracket, there is not a specific bracket made for the carriers but you can use # LP15SB. Self-tapping...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier For 2016 Nissan Versa
  • A 2016 Nissan Versa is not intended to do any towing of any kind according to your owners manual. If you choose to do any additional carrying on your vehicle, it will need to be with a cargo carrier or a roof rack. I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24887 to get you started. For a cargo carrier I recommend the 20x48 Surco Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # 52017 which is confirmed to fit with a Class I hitch. For...

  • How Difficult is it to Install Lights on a Folding Cargo Carrier
  • Some cargo carriers have lights designed for them but not all. Depending on how handy you are, you could modify a light kit like part # 52014 or part # 6504 and adapt it to any carrier. You would have to do some fabricating or modifying of the attachment systems. A simpler solution would be to use Rola Carrier, part # 59502 and the direct-fit light kit, part # 20174 or part # 98174LED. They use rubber grommets and pop right into existing openings on the carrier.

  • Will The Surco Folding Cargo Carrier # 52018F Fit On A 2007 Audi Q7
  • The light package, # 52014, will only be necessary if your cargo will cover the tail lights on your vehicle. The Surco Cargo Carrier, # 52018F, is a wide carrier at 60 inches wide. If you will be carrying large items that will sit tall enough to block your tail lights, then you will need the light package. You can also check your local laws and regulations to see if the additional lights are required when using a cargo carrier. The carrier itself will not block your tail lights nor...

  • Does the Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 52014 have Turn Signal Functions
  • Yes. The lights included with Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 52014 have turn signal functions. Each light has stop, tail, and turn signal functions which is how trailer lights are configured. Since this set plugs into a 4-Way trailer connector they operate the same way as trailer lights.

  • Troubleshooting Light Not Working with the Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 52014
  • If you installed the Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 52014, which fits carriers # 52018F, # 52017, and # 52018, and all of the functions on one light are not working then it sounds like the problem is the light itself. If some of the functions worked on the light then I would say that you have a problem with the wiring somewhere. You can test the light by running a ground to the marked pin and then test the other 2 pins with a 12V power source. If you think that the wiring may be an issue...

  • Is the Cargo Carrier Light Kit Required for Use with a Surco Carrier on a 2009 Toyota Highlander
  • You do not have to install the Cargo Carrier Light Kit # 52014 on the 24x60 Folding Cargo Carrier # 52018F in order for it to be used on your 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. It is a judgment call, if you think that the cargo carrier would not block the view of your tail lights then I would not worry about it. Otherwise I would recommend you get it. I would also recommend you check your local laws and regulations to determine if there is a legal requirement for you to have a light kit...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier and Light Kit Recommendation for a 2004 Honda Pilot
  • The Curt Folding Cargo Carrier, # C18153, will fit on your 2004 Honda Pilot as long as you have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. The main problem that we find with folding cargo carriers is bumper clearance when the carrier is in the folded position, but this carrier offers 9 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier when folded. To verify if this cargo carrier will fit in the folded position, you can measure the distance from the center...
