It comes with two keys to lock and unlock it, and the keys can only be removed when it's fully locked. When it's unlocked they'll stay inside.I would like to point out that this does only open from the passenger side, so when installing this you want to make sure it is closer to the passenger side for ease of loading and unloading.

Also, we have these points on the front, back, and side, and that's going to serve as a tie down point for either your ratchet straps or bungee cords when you're putting your wheelchair, or your lawnmower, whatever it is you're hauling. Once you're ready to either unload or load up your wheelchair, you have to lower the ramp first. To do that, you have these pins right here that are holding the braces up to keep it in this position. To take them out, you just remove the pin first, then our clip here, like so. We're actually going to lift it up to this point here, and secure it up here so it doesn't just fly around, and reinsert our clip. We'll do the same on the other side as well.

It has this mesh flooring here, as well as the ramp, and that's going to make it easier to clean.

This is adjustable along the barge, should you need it. Also, how we have it set right now there isn't going there isn't going to be any interference between the hatch and the box itself.

How it connects to your roof rack, we have these clamps that'll go into place, these AcuTight clamps, actually, and we'll show you those in a moment.

We have this nice mesh floor here which is going to make it easier to clean. At the front and around the sides, we have these points here which are going to serve as tie-down points for either your ratchet straps or your bungee cords. The exhaust is going to be on the passenger side of the vehicle and it does face down away from the cargo carrier, and thanks to its raised shank, which is going to improve clearance issues between the cargo carrier itself and the ground, you're not going to have to worry about heat sensitive material once you're loading that up. With it in this position right now, we do have full access to our rear hatch to get anything we need. However, I am going to go ahead and give you a break over point measurement and that's going to be the point where your hatch would come into contact with whatever it is you're hauling.

It does have a raised shank to it, so your clearance will not be an issue, as far as from the cargo carrier to the ground. We do have a tail pipe here on the passenger side, however, it is pointed down, away from the cargo carrier, and thanks to the height of the cargo carrier, you're not going to have to worry about any heat-sensitive materials once you're loading things up. I'm going to go ahead and give you a couple quick measurements now. Starting with the edge of the bumper to our outer edge, we've added about 33" to the rear of the vehicle.

It does have an aerodynamic shape to it, plus it has a fairing installed on the front, which is gonna cut down on the wind noise and drag while you're driving, and this will work with, as you see here, factory cross bars, as well as square, round, elliptical, and aero. It's very easy to install, and we'll show you how the last bracket goes on. We're gonna come here to the back corner of the driver's side, where we already have our plastic piece installed between the cargo basket itself and the crossbars. We also have our metal piece installed in the top here, and it just pushes into place like so. We'll put our bolts through, and these are Allen-head bolts, like so, and then we'll take our bottom bracket, line it up, and start tightening our bolts down. Some things that this can actually be used for are anything from sporting goods equipment to camping equipment, anything wet you want to keep out of your vehicle, or just anything you want to keep out of your vehicle to make more space for you and your family as you travel. Try not to lose the tightening tool as you're tightening it.

Dodge Grand Caravan Cargo Carriers Questions

  • For what you are looking to do the Rage Carrier part # MX600 would work well from just the carrier's point of view as it has a 600 lb weight capacity. However you would need to ensure your hitch has the tongue weight capacity for the weight of the motorcycle plus the carrier which weighs 66 lbs. You would need at least a 550 lb tongue weight capacity on the hitch of your vehicle which isn't super likely for a Class III hitch.

  • The Yakima Q Tower roof rack would be an excellent choice for the Yakima # Y07337 Skybox 21. The rack would consist of the following parts: 58 inch crossbars, part # Y00409 Q Towers, part # Y00124 Q Clips # Y00657 (order two sets of these, for a total of 4 clips) The rack itself has a capacity of 165-lbs but be sure to check the owner's manual to confirm the roof's weight capacity, which could be less than the rack's.

  • If your 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan owner's manual indicates the vehicle's maximum tongue weight capacity is 360-lbs, then that is the maximum weight that can be placed on its hitch. If the combined weight of your scooter and the carrier you wish to use exceeds this weight capacity then you will need to use a small trailer instead of a hitch mount carrier to transport the scooter. Exceeding the vehicle's (or the hitch's) rated capacities can result in damage to the vehicle, hitch...

  • I checked with Thule and Yakima and basically all of their cargo boxes are going to fit the factory crossbars of your 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan. The most popular option is also one of the best priced boxes. The Thule Sidekick # TH682 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well to carry up to 8 cubic feet of storage space. The most popular cargo box is the part # RL100S30 which is also confirmed as a fit. I attached a link to a page that has all of the Thule cargo options...

  • The hitches offered for the 2013 Grand Caravan and Town and Country set back under the rear bumper at a different distance. The Curt # 13364 hitch has a 4 inch distance from the hitch pin hole to the rear most portion of the bumper, while the Draw-Tite is recessed a bit more at about 6-1/2 inches. Based on the distance the carrier is away from the vehicle in the video, the vehicle in the video has the Curt hitch installed on it. This means that when installed on your vehicle...

  • The Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S referenced in your question is designed to fit most factory crossbars. To ensure that this will work with the crossbars on your 2013 Dodge Caravan, I recommend taking a couple of measurements. You will want to measure the height and width of the crossbars themselves, as well as the distance from crossbar to crossbar on the roof (crossbar spread). The Car Top Cargo Box will fit crossbars that are up to 3-3/4 inches wide and 1-3/16...

  • The new SportRack Skyline cargo box, # SR7095, will fit on crossbars that are up to 4 inches wide and a center to center bar spread of 23-5/8 to 34 inches. You will need to measure the crossbars on your 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan to determine if it will fit. Because this cargo box is only 54 inches long it is highly unlikely that it will interfere with opening the rear hatch.

  • Because of the design of the factory roof rack on your 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan it will not accept any roof cargo boxes that use the Quick Grip mounting clamps. Yakima roof cargo boxes all use the Quick Grip mounting clamps. Thule will offer the Thule Sidekick Cargo Box, part # TH682, that attaches with U-bolts to crossbars that are 4 inches or less in width.

  • According to Thule, the Thule Force XL, # TH625, will fit the factory crossbars on a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. Thule does not offer a cargo box that is both 15 to 16 cubic feet and has u-bolt mounting hardware. Thy instead use the Quick Grip Mounts which make installing the boxes much easier. You are correct, both the Sidekick, # TH682, and the Excursion will also fit. The SportRack Explorer and Aero XL will fit as long as the crossbars are no wider than 4 inches. I have included...

  • The SportRack Aero cargo box has been replaced with the Vista box, # SR7018. But on the Aero box, it is designed to fit crossbars no wider than 4 inches and with a center to center distance between the bars of 24 to 34 inches. You will need to measure the crossbars on your 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan to determine if they are within these measurements. The Vista box will also fit crossbars no wider than 4 inches but the bar spread would have to be between 23-5/8 and 34 inches...

  • Yakima states that the RocketBox 14 will not fit your 2009 Caravan. I also checked with Thule, and their cargo boxes that use the Quick Grip mounting clamps are not compatible with your Caravan either. SportRack which is a division of Thule offers a budget-priced selection of roof-mounted cargo boxes that use U-bolts to attach to the crossbars. They will accommodate cross bars up to 4 inches wide. I was told by my contact at Thule that these would work great for you. The Vista...

  • The MaxxTow Extender, # MT70231, adjusts by the inch and has eight different settings, so while it is not infinitely adjustable, you do have a number of height options. In it's lowest position, the extender will be 15-3/4" from the top of your receiver and in the highest position it will be 23" from the top of your receiver. This means that if the bed of your 2009 Grand Caravan is between 16 and 23 inches above your receiver, it will line up. You can see this demonstrated in the...

The 20x48 Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18110, offers the angled shank which elevates the platform for better ground clearance and easier loading, has a 300 pound weight capacity, and weighs approximately 30 pounds.

  • I have a recommendation for you. However, Yakima does not guarantee a fit for any of their roof cargo boxes on your 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan because they have determined that the factory crossbars aren't strong enough to support their cargo carriers. I recommend the Thule Motion XT, part # TH6299B. Thule has determined that this cargo box is a fit for the factory crossbars on your Grand Caravan. This cargo box has a 22 cubic foot capacity and a high-gloss automotive finish,...

  • The Pilot Roof Rack Cargo Bag, CG-13, is designed to fit most cars, vans and SUVs equipped with factory luggage racks. The straps are designed to go straight up and down so the luggage rack bars they attach to should be about 32 inches apart. They also recommend cross bars that run side to side when using this bag. This should not be a problem on most newer minivans factory luggage racks.

  • The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-01-02 is 22-inches tall when assembled so it would not allow your Grand Caravan's rear hatch to open when it is in place in your hitch and in use. But since this carrier folds flat when not in use (as you can see in the linked video) in this folded state it WILL allow your rear hatch to open. But note this carrier will be very close to your rear bumper when installed in your hitch and may actually just touch it. This carrier requires...
