Video Transcript for Review of etrailer etrailer cargo carrier - etrailer cargo carrier - e98943

Today we're going to take a look at the etrailer.com light kit mounting brackets for the hitch mounted cargo carriers. It's for a quantity of two brackets. Now these mounting brackets will allow you to add a light kit to your Etrailer or Curt hitch mounted cargo carrier. The light kits that we sell that will work with this as part number 20174 or the 98174 LED light kit. Both of those we do sell separately on our website. These are designed to work with the cargo carriers, E98874, C18153 and the C18152.

As you can see, it does include the mounting hardware. Want to give you a few dimensions on the brackets. The overall width on them, it's going to be right at eight and one eighth inches wide.The height on it is right at five and a half inches tall and the depth of it at the top is going to be right at about one inch. At the bottom flange is going to be about two inches. The opening for the light, just slide that over, it's going to be right at six and three quarter inches wide and the height of the light opening is two and a half inches tall.

But basically what you would do with these, you can see how they're designed sort of with a hook up at the top. Basically you'll hang the light bracket over the top rail of the cargo carrier and this bottom flange portion will rest on the cargo carrier mesh and then you use your hardware to bolt it to the mesh to hold it into place. But that should do it for the review on the etrailer.com light kit and mounting brackets for the hitch mounted cargo carriers for a quantity of two brackets.

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier for 2010 Chevy Traverse
    Unfortunately, Rola doesn't make a folding version of the # 59502 and an adapter is not an option for it. The etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier, part # e98874 will fit your vehicle if the hitch pin hole to rear of bumper measurement is less than 9-1\2 inches. The # e98943-44LED light kit can be added to that carrier, and I think you would be happy with their oval appearance. I've linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.

  • Recommended Talllight Kit for etralier e98873 Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier
    Adding a light kit to the etrailer # e98873 motorcycle carrier is a great idea to provide better visibility for the carrier. I'd recommend using # 20174 for incandescent bulbs or # 98174LED for LED lamps. You'll also need a set of # e98943 mounting brackets. The LED's are more expensive, but they'll be much brighter and draw just a fraction of the electricity that the incandescent bulbs do.
