Ford F-150 Cargo Carriers Questions

  • We only have one option that allows you to carry a bike rack and a cargo carrier at the same time. For that we have the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 part # HR1450-85. This is a bike rack that allows you to also carry the included cargo carrier behind it. There's no other safe way that we can offer to allow you to carry both at the same time.

  • The Pro Series cargo carrier # 63153 has a hollow shank so you can use an anti-rattle device that partially mounts inside of the shank. Take a look at the SilentACT, # SHP2082. This is one of the easier anti-rattle devices to use because it has the cam handle you will use to tighten the lock so no wrench is required. I have included a link to a video review of this anti-rattle device for you. This same device can be used as long as the bike rack also has a hollow shank and...

  • Using a load extender with a roof rack is a great idea! It will allow you to keep the tailgate closed and the Tonneau cover in place just like you want. To make that happen let's first look at roof racks. Since you will be using a load extender you can use a single bar roof rack. You will just need bar # RRVA150S, feet # RRRLKVAH, and fit kit # DK427H. Then, for a load extender, I recommend the T-Load # RTL002. The T-Load will not only support the kayak in the loaded position...

  • I checked with the manufacturer and they told me that the hitch shank on the Pro Series Solo Cargo Carrier # PS1040100, can be flipped either way to help with clearance when opening the cargo area door on your vehicle. So what you can do is flip the shank in the orientation that lowers the platform of the carrier a few inches as opposed to in the up position which would raise it.

  • Since there are different configurations of the 2014 Ford F-150, it is going to depend on the specific model. The vehicle will have its own tongue weight capacity, some models may have a higher capacity than others. So knowing that ahead of time will help since it would not help to add a hitch with a high tongue weight capacity of the vehicle cannot handle that much weight as well. So if you can get an F-150 with enough tongue weight capacity without a factory hitch then you...

  • There's no reason why you can't use that set-up, we just recommend it for the Regular Cab truck because the Regular cab doesn't have enough roof area to mount two crossbars while the SuperCrew does. If you wanted to construct a roof rack using the square load bar # 853-0182-14, the half foot pack # TH4802, the vehicle specific fit kit # THKIT1521 and the Goal Post # TH997, you can by all means do so. If you wanted to mount two crossbars, you'd use: 58 Inch Load Bar, part...

  • The Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier # SMC600 has the capacity for up to a 600-lb motorcycle so it can handle your 525-lbs BMW with some room to spare. Safety margin is always a good thing. Your Curt hitch # C14002 has a very substantial 1000-lb tongue weight (TW) rating so it too provides a healthy safety margin for carrying the 525-lb BMW plus the 90-lb Rage carrier. I suggest a hitch lock # 7683 to secure the carrier to your truck. The Rage carrier will add to the overall...

  • I bought one of these carriers, # MT70106, for my step father and he uses it for snowblowers and mowers so it works well for that. The rear exit exhaust would only be a problem if the nearest part of the basket is less than a foot (12 inches) from the exhaust path. On this carrier, it measures 14 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. Measure from the center of the pin hole on your 2014 Ford F-150 straight back 14 inches and see if...

  • Depends on the width of you kayaks and the width of your truck bed, the Erickson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 is 48-1/2 inches in width so if your kayaks are narrower than than next to each other this load extender should work well for you. I attached a review video for you to check out. You might also be interested in a pin and clip part # PC3 and ratcheting tie downs like part # EM34415.

  • The Rage PowerSport Motorcycle Carrier, # SMC600, that you referenced is an excellent choice to carry your 2012 Vespa GTS Super Scooter with your 2012 Ford F-150. This carrier fits in 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and has a weight capacity of 600 lbs. Your scooter will weigh roughly 340 to 350 lbs, so you should not have an issue. The aluminum carrier track, steel frame and wheel chock make this carrier much easier to use than carriers with removable pin tracks. I have attached...

  • Hitch mount cargo carriers were certainly not designed to be used as a step, but I will admit that I have used a cargo carrier to climb into the back of a truck before. The weight capacity should not be an issue since each of the cargo carriers you mentioned have a weight capacity of 500 lbs, but the wobble could make the step uneasy if you do not step directly in the center of the cargo carrier. You should also keep in mind that the floor of the cargo carrier is metal and moisture...

  • No, you will not be able to put anything in the end of the Pro Series cargo carrier # 63153 but I do have a solution that you might like. You could use the Curt multipurpose ball mount # D210. This will allow you to use a cargo carrier in the top receiver portion (rated for 350 pounds tongue weight) and tow the trailer with the ball mount portion. The entire ball mount has a capacity of 750 pounds tongue weight and 7,500 pounds gross trailer weight. I have linked a video review...

  • The towing capacities for a 2012 Ford F-150 range from 5,500 to 9,400 lbs depending on how it is equipped. The tongue weight capacity would then be 10 percent of the overall capacity so your truck would have a tongue weight capacity from 550 to 940 lbs most likely. We have a light kit that could possibly be made to work on the # K2TMC201, part # 98174LED. You would need a pair of brackets as well for mounting the lights below the carrier. For that you would need part # BK70BB.

  • The TorkLift Lock and Load SideKick Cargo Tray, part # TLA7901 will work with your Coleman Pulse 1850 generator based on the dimensions you gave me. The minimum height for the # TLA7901 is 16-1/2 inches which you said your generator is. The tray measures 21-1/4 inches x 16-1/8 inches and with the offset handle on your generator will still work with the crossbar that secures the generator on the tray. This is designed to fit 2 inch receiver openings. The distance from the hitch...

  • The MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier, part # MT70106, would be a good option to carry behind your 2010 Ford F-150 Supercrew. If you need cargo straps to secure the grill or mower when hauling them, I recommend the CargoBuckle Mini G3 Retractable Ratchet Straps w S-Hooks, part # IMF103745-86. These straps measure 1 inch by 6 ft long and have a safe working load limit of 466 lbs. they feature a ratcheting mechanism that makes it easy to tighten and maintain tension on the straps. Each...

  • I may have a solution for you, but the Roadmaster dual hitch adapters are designed for use only while flat towing vehicles. You can't use them for towing a trailer. Your best option would be to use the # RTL002 in a front mount hitch for your 2010 Ford F-150 like the part # 65061. I attached a link to a page that has all of the roof racks we offer for your 2010 Ford F-150 as well.

  • The crossbar included with the Rhino-Rack T-Load # RTL002 is 49 inches long, and the usable carrying area between the included load stops is about 44 inches. You will have about 47 inches if you remove the load stops. As long as the combined width of your two kayaks does not exceed that width and their combined weight does not exceed the 165 lb capacity of the T-Load, you should be okay. You will also need a crossbar on the roof of the vehicle to support the other end of the...

  • When the Curt cargo carrier # C18153 is folded up it measures 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier so clearance would not be an issue on your 2007 Ford F-150. There are a couple of things you should know. First, having cargo at the front of a vehicle can affect driver visibility, air flow to the motor, and could block the lights. Also, the front axle capacity (listed on that sticker in the driver's side door jamb) needs to be rated...
