First I have to say that I am very pleased with your customer service, specificly Roger ext 79340 and George. George alerted me that one of the items had a longer lead time than I was expecting. When I called Roger helped me change my order slightly so that I would get all the items that I needed within my planned schedule. As I am heading out on a fishing trip. All parts came in on time, and everything installed very easy. Thank you very much for helping to make the last few days a little less stressful.



- e98943-44LED
by:

Overall, the assembly and installation is very straight forward and simple. However, the fit of the lights and grommets into the brackets is very loose. I actually used an adhesive to secure the grommets to the bracket to prevent them from potentially rattling loose during travel. Overall, decent, but maybe not worth the current price point ($xx.xx).

  • Light Kit Recommendation for etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier e98874
    We have two light kits that will work great with the etrailer cargo carrier # e98874. We have the part # e98949-44 which has incandescent bulbs or we have the # e98943-44LED which uses the much brighter and longer lasting LED style lights. I attached a review video for the light kit for you to check out as well.

  • 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...

  • Is My Hitch Cargo Carrier of Legal Length?
    Many states have different regulations regarding towing and use of cargo carriers, ranging from visible tail lights to license plates. These regulations often change so I can't say with certainty that a cargo carrier is following ALL the rules for ALL the States. A bike rack and cargo carrier combo like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier for 2 Bikes # HR1450Z-85 sits at almost 50", but I haven't heard any issues about it being too long. I'm not a lawyer, but...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier for my 2019 Subaru Outback
    We can get you set up with everything you'll need! For the hitch use the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98847. It is one of the easiest hitches to install on your Outback and will offer plenty of capacity for your cargo carrier. For the carrier you can't beat the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # e98874 not only will this fold up when not in use but will also tilt away and help you to access your rear hatch area. This means you wont have to unload it to get into...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Light Kit for a 2016 Honda Odyssey
    The 23x60 Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18151 would be an excellent option for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76025 on a 2016 Honda Odyssey. There would be no clearance issues in either the stored or in-use position so no worries here. In order to add lights, the etrailer.com License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit part # e98943-44LED is a direct fit for the 23x60 Curt Cargo Carrier and you can use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector...

  • Trailer Connector Adapter for e98943-44LED Cargo Carrier Light Kit on 2015 Honda Pilot
    The # e98943-44LED etrailer brand License Plate and LED Taillight Mounting Kit uses a standard 4 pole trailer connector plug, which would be compatible with a standard 4 pole trailer wiring harness like what would be provided by # 118558. If your Pilot has a 7-way trailer connector, you'd simply use an adapter like # 47345. I've linked to an install/demonstration video for the light kit as well as to a video for the adapter I recommended.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 2021 Hyundai Palisade With Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch
    For your 2021 Hyundai Palisade with the Stealth Hitches Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 391HYUNPALIS19T, I recommend the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874. This carrier is different than others is that it will fold up when not in use as well as tilt away incase you need to access your rear hatch. It is rated for 500lbs. Because it folds up this moves it farther from your vehicle exhaust so that you do not have to be as concerned with the exhaust heat. There is also a 2" rise to help...

  • Is My Cargo Carrier Legal or Illegal?
    From my research, I discovered that most states require brake lights on any accessory if the accessory blocks the view of the vehicle's taillights. As far as the legality of the length of the carrier extending from the rear of your RV, I recommend checking with your state's highway patrol documents. If you need brake lights for your cargo carrier, I recommend the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # e98943-44LED. The kit also comes with...

    This is a very common question and we have a great solution for you. Using the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier part # e98943-44LED for LED lights or part # e98943-44 for standard incandescent lights will not only allow you to have working lights on the rear of your carrier to keep you safe but allows you to relocate your license plate as well to stay legal. Both the light brackets and the license plate holder are secured with the included...

You will also need a hitch pin and clip or hitch lock for the cargo carrier, and you may need is a 4-flat wiring harness for the light kit if your Enclave does not have one.

  • Difference Between etrailer and Pro Series 24 by 60 Cargo Carriers
    The etrailer carrier part # e98874 is about 10 lbs heavier than the Pro Series part # 63153 that you referenced because it can fold up when not in use unlike the Pro Series, and can be tilted down. Both carriers are compatible with a light kit. The Pro Series with the # 98174LED and the etrailer with the # e98943-44LED. Between these two carriers I recommend the etrailer due to the additional features.

    The etrailer.com License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit pat # e98943-44LED contains the etrailer.com Tail Light Mounting Brackets part # e98943 which measures 8-1/8" wide x 5-1/2" tall x 1" deep (bottom) x 2" deep (top).

  • Wiring Harness Connections for Cargo Carrier
    The etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # e98943-44LED will have brackets that are flush with the carrier and the lights will stick out slightly just like the ROLA kit # 59516 or # 20174. The wiring harness like you are referring to will look almost identical as well. The harness will do the same thing. If you want more clearance on the back side you would need to splice in the 90 degree connectors # A47PB which will make the interference...

  • etrailer.com Cargo Carrier Basket Light Kit Availability
    Yes we do! You will want to go with the etrailer.com Light Kit, # e98943-44, or the I recommend going with the LED version, # e98943-44LED, which will be much brighter and sharper and are easier on your tow package wiring. I attached a video of these lights for you to check out.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Way Wiring Harness For a Cargo Carrier On a 2021 Subaru Forester
    I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch receiver # e83ZR as being the best choice for your 2021 Subaru Forester. This receiver has one of the easiest installations and does not require removing the rear bumper cover to install. Since you will primarily be using this receiver to carry a cargo carrier it carries the higher tongue weight rating of 525lbs and is capable of towing up to 3,500lbs. You will need to ensure that you do not exceed any capacities given by Subaru for your particular...

  • Is There A Way To Increase The Distance Between Lights On Curt Auxiliary LED Trailer Lights?
    I may have a solution for you, however, there is not an adapter available for the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 that will increase the distance between the light bars. If you just needed more overall length of the wiring harness then you could add Hopkins Endurance Easy-Pull 4-Flat Extension w/ 2 Grip Rings - Vehicle and Trailer Ends - 48" # HM47114 between the Curt light kit and the tow vehicle, but this will not extend the wiring on the light bar. Since the wires on that...

  • Will The Draw-Tite DT56MR Work For Using A Cargo Carrier On A 2022 Ford Escape?
    The Draw-Tite # DT56MR hitch will indeed fit your 2022 Ford Escape. This goes for Hybrid models as well, if you have one. Though this is rated up to 675 pounds of tongue weight, you will need to check your owners manual to double check your vehicle's capacity as it does look to vary depending on how your Escape was equipped. With that said, it will still be a great hitch for carrying the etrailer.com # e98874 cargo carrier. With that said, I do have a couple add on parts you may want to...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid
    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # DT79MR will not fit the Hybrid model of your 2021 Honda CR-V, but you can use the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98848 instead. This has the same basic design as the Draw-Tite hitch you were looking at so that only the hitch receiver will be visible. Attached is a photo of this installed on a 2021 CR-V as well as the installation video for you to check out as a general reference. I also recommend installing the T-One Wiring Kit # 118741 so that you can tow a trailer...

  • Recommended Hitch And Wiring For A 2022 Toyota Sienna
    As your 2022 Toyota Sienna is rated for 385 pounds of tongue weight and 3,500 pounds of towing capacity, I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # DT55MR. This is technically rated up to 4,500 pounds towing and 675 pounds of tongue weight, but will be limited to the previously mentioned vehicle capacities. So it will still be the higher rated option and is the best way to go for carrying the etrailer.com # e98874 cargo carrier. To get the # e98943-44LED light kit working on the carrier, you...

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C13416 is a confirmed fit for all models of the 2021 RAV4. I have linked an installation video. The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector item # 118801 plugs in behind the tail lights without having to cut or splice any wires. This will provide your friends RAV4 with a 4-flat connector to power...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
    For your 2021 Chrysler Pacifica I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76046-SK. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and has a maximum tongue weight of 675 lbs which will be more than enough for a cargo carrier. Make sure to check out your owner's manual so you know the tongue weight capacity of your Pacifica, this will likely be the limiting factor when it comes to how much you can carry. For a folding, hitch mounted cargo carrier, I recommend the 24x60...

    I have a possible solution for you. First, though, we don't have light kits and plate brackets made specifically for bike racks, including the Thule EasyFold XT, part # TH903202. We do have a kit that is designed for cargo baskets. It's the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit, part # e98943-44LED. You could mount this to your EasyFold with screws or possibly zip ties. I've linked to a video reviw of this below. For the wiring, if you let me know what year your...

    For your 2018 Ford F-150 I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76136 because it has a nice clean installation with a hidden crosstube, all backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier C18153 is a great product that you will be happy with and the only other things I recommend are a locking anti-rattle hitch pin and a light kit. You can use part # 63232 for the hitch in and then part # e98943-44LED for the light and license plate kit. Attached...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Light Kit
    I believe you're speaking of a mat that would be placed under a roof mounted cargo mat to prevent scratching the vehicle roof, is that correct? If so, use the # RL100650 non-skid roof mat. As far as the lights go, are you perhaps speaking of a light kit for #RL100650 or a hitch mounted cargo carrier? If so, we offer a few different choices but some of them are pretty specific to the brand or design of the carrier used. The # 52014 lamp kit is compatible with the # 52017, and # 52018...
