Astonishingly great service from Etrailer. I had an issue where an order I had placed wouldn't be delivered on time. Martha O took great care of me, and worked wonders to change my order speed. To top this, the price and quality of the products Etrailer sells is unbeatable.



by:

easy install well made!



by:

Really disappointed in this kit. The rubber grommets do not fit in the metal. They're way too loose - they just fall right out and no way to secure them properly without perhaps a liberal application of silicon.

But even if that worked, it's wired backwards. One side has a much longer cord length (instead of being equal) so I can't reach my 4-pin plugin on my hitch for either vehicle.



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).



by:

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.

  • Folding Cargo Carrier For 2 Inch Receiver On 2007 GMC Yukon
    The carrier I recommend is the etrailer Cargo Carrier, part # e98874. This is a 24 X 60 inch carrier that will fold when not in use. The distance from the center of the hitch pin to the closest edge of the carrier when folded is 9-1/2 inches, and when folded down it is 19-1/2 inches. If the cargo you are carrying blocks the tail lights, you will want to install tail lights on the carrier like part # e98943-44LED. You might also consider Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18151. This is a 24...

  • Light Kit and License Plate Bracket Recommendation for a Curt Cargo Carrier
    It would require a little drilling, but I would recommend you get a etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Item # e98943-44LED. This kit comes with a license plate bracket also. Once you drilled holes to install the # 6504 on the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18100 it would install pretty easily and work very well. The Tow Package Wiring Harness # 118251 would also be the correct harness for your 2008 Ford Escape. I linked installation instructions...

  • Mounting Bracket Dimensions for etrailer.com License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit
    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). The light opening then measures 6-3/4" wide x 2-1/2" tall. I have attached for you a review video which gives all of these measurements as well.

  • Tail Lights for Bike Rack
    I have something that might work for you. You can use # e98943-44LED but you may have to make a bracket or find a way to secure the lights to your bike rack. You could also use a set of magnetic flat tow tail lights # C6304. These will placed on the top of your car so that can be seen by other drivers. You will need a 4 pole trailer wiring harness on your vehicle to operate either of these kits.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for a Cargo Carrier on a SUV with a 2 Inch Class III Hitch
    Good news, I can help you with you get your cargo carrier set up and ready for traveling. I recommend the etrailer 24 inch by 60 inch Cargo Carrier # e98874 for your Class III 2 inch hitch. The only time you will need to add lights or a license plate bracket is if your cargo blocks either your vehicles taillights or license plate. We offer a light kits like # e98943-44LED it comes with everything you need including mounting brackets, and license plate relocation brackets # LP10SB if...

  • Tail Lights for Motorcycle Carrier that Blocks Tow Vehicles Lights
    If a motorcycle on a hitch mounted carrier is blocking your vehicle's tail lights and turn signals then it will be illegal to use in day or night. If you have a 4-way trailer connector you can use a cargo carrier light kit, like # e98943-44LED. These are designed to be installed on a cargo carrier but they'll work for your application. You'll need to find a way to mount them though. Another option is a magnetic light kit. The Magnetic LED Tow Lights # TLL21RK plug into the vehicle's...

  • Does 98174LED Fit the etrailer # 98874 Cargo Carrier?
    I have a solution for your etrailer cargo carrier, but # 98174LED is not the correct light. To add LED lights on your carrier you need the Light Kit #e98943-44LED.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Is the License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit Compatible with the etrailer Cargo Carrier?
    I have a great alternative for you. Unfortunately, the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # e98943-44LED will not fit the 20x48 etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier. However, given that the construction of the etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches is made of steel, there is a possibility that tail lights with magnetic mounts will work with the carrier. For this option, I recommend the Hopkins Magnetic Tow Lights # C6304. For the best...

  • Recommended License Plate Brackets For Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    We do have license plate brackets that can be mounted on a carrier. If you are looking for a bracket with an LED light I recommend part # LPL55CB. For a lighted bracket with a replaceable incandescent bulb I recommend part # LP55CB. To install either of these lights the black wire would need to tap into the running light circuit of your vehicle and the white wire would need to get grounded. The best way to wire this is to use a harness like part # HM48035. If you don't want to install...

  • Cargo Carrier and Bag for 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness with OEM 2 Inch Hitch
    Since the OEM trailer hitch of your 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness is a 2 inch hitch like what the etrailer cargo carrier # e98874 is designed to fit this would work well to provide you with a cargo carrier. The cargo bag part # e98990 will fit in this carrier as well. If you wanted to add a light kit this you'd want the part # e98943-44LED and for reflectors # RE15RK. Then for a hitch lock anti rattle device you'd also want the part # e99047.

  • Can etrailer Tail Light Mounting Kit # e98943-44LED be Installed on an EZ 3-Scooter Carrier

  • Will The Surco Folding Cargo Carrier # 52018F Fit On A 2007 Audi Q7
    The light package, # e98943-44LED, will only be necessary if your cargo will cover the tail lights on your vehicle. The etrailer Cargo Carrier, # e98874, 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...

  • 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...

  • Hitch and Accessories Needed to Install Cargo Carrier on 2008 Toyota Highlander
    For starters, you will need to install a hitch like the Draw-Tite # 75726. You will also need a pin and clip, part # PC3 or a locking hitch pin like # e98882 to secure the cargo carrier in the receiver. These are the necessities, but there are other accessories that you might be interested in. There is a light kit available # e98943-44LED. If you are interested in a light kit, you would need to install a 4-pole trailer connector on the vehicle, part # 118449. A cargo bag like the etrailer...

  • Recommended Cargo Hitch Carrier for a 2014 Ford Escape
    I have two different recommendations for a hitch cargo carrier that should sit above the exhaust on your 2014 Ford Escape. I recommnd the etrailer Carrier, part # e98874. This is a 500 lbs carrier that is folding and has a 2 inch rise. This carrier has a 19-1/2 inch distance from the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier when in use, so this might help with your exhaust issue. It also has a tilting option when loaded. Since none of our cargo carriers come with lights pre-installed,...

  • Light Kit for FHG77ZR Cargo Carrier With Ramp
    You can easily add lights to the Flint Hill Goods Cargo Carrier with Ramp # FHG77ZR as this carrier comes with reflectors as opposed to functioning lights. I recommend the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Item # e98943-44LED which will connect to the 4-way on your vehicle. The lights will simply attach to the cargo carrier with the included hardware and then you plug in the 4-way and you're set! I have attached links to the instructions...

  • Will a 24 By 48 inch Box Fit in the 24x60 Cargo Carrier For 2 inch Trailer Hitches
    Your box should fit as long as it is no wider than 24 inches, which is the inside width of this carrier. The distance from the start of the corner on these carriers is 61-1/2 inches so there will be plenty of length along the front and back for your 48 inch long box to fit inside. The total inside width is 60 inches. Weight capacity is 500 pounds. Please check the tongue weight of your vehicle. You must go with the lowest limit. You may also want to consider a cargo carrier light kit...

  • Will this RV Bumber 2 Bike Rack, part # S80605, Obstruct the Visibility of my RV Tail Lights
    If you used the RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, part # S80605, there is a chance that your tail lights would shine through the spokes of the wheel allowing them to be visible, and therefore safe and legal. What I would recommend you do, is hitch up your trailer to your towing vehicle and have a friend hold a bike with the bottom of the wheels as high as the top of your bumper to simulate where the bike would be if you had this rack mounted with bikes on it. Next, have another friend activate your...
