Weatherproof Ripstop Construction with Watertight Seams

Waterproof Bag

This cargo bag is constructed of heavy-duty PVC tarpaulin so it's hard to cut or tear. If it does acquire a hole or tear, the ripstop material is designed to prevent the hole or tear from expanding. The bag is also weather resistant so your cargo stays dry in rain and snow. And for added weather protection, the seams are fused together to create a watertight seal.

Large, Zippered Opening

2 Zippers

A large, double-zippered opening on top of the bag makes it easy to load and unload your cargo. The zippers wrap around 3 sides so that you can fully open the top. There is a flap with hook-and-loop fasteners that provides extra moisture protection for your cargo and helps protect the zippers from rust and corrosion. You can add a small padlock to the zippers to secure your cargo.

Included Tie-Down Straps

Straps on bag

8 Tie-down straps secure the bag to your hitch-mounted carrier or roof rack. Each strap attaches to one of the 8 integrated buckle attachments on the bag. Simply feed the long end of the strap into the buckle attachment on the bag. Then loop the short end around the side rail of your cargo carrier and feed it into the buckle attachment on the strap. Pull the strap tight and then tie off the excess.

Video Transcript for MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Bag - Water Resistant Material - MT70209 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Maxx Tow cargo with included mounting straps. This cargo bag will hold up to 11 cubic feet of your gear. It conveniently would fit on most traditional size hitch mounted cargo carriers and you can also place this in your truck bed. You can place it somewhere in or on your trailer, in your trunk, or even on a roof mounted cargo rack.The bottom of this bag actually features a really nice, soft bottom, which allows it to conform to the cargo carrier for a secure fit. This going to be idea for luggage, sports equipment, camping gear, and other large items.It's constructed from a weather resistant PVC ripstop construction. So this bag is designed to keep all of your gear safe and protected from rain, sun, dirt, and other elements such as road debris.When we look at the seams on this unit, all the seams are welded seams to block out moisture.

So, you don't have to worry about moisture getting into the bag, because of the welded seam design. And it features a nice, heavy duty double zipper design, so two zippers here. And it also has these hook and loop flaps all the way around the opening. These are designed to shield the zippers from the elements and help further prevent leakage. You can see here we have a top flap comes over the zipper, and protects the zipper and just offers a lot of security to the unit.

Th see zippers can also be locked, so they go the slots in them, you can put them together and pass through a padlock to add more security and keep your gear safe.Again, it does come with the tie-down straps, there's eight of them included. So, eight tie-down straps with buckles, easily secure the bad to your cargo carrier. It has the build in loops on the bag that provide the anchor points for the straps. You attach the strap to buckle or to the loop here on the bag, and then you run the strap down to your cargo carrier, loop it around, and tighten it up, and that's going to further secure the bag to the actual carrier. So those are included, again eight straps.When we look at the storage capacity, we're looking at 11 cubic feet.

That's quite a bit of space in there. So overall dimensions when it's fully stuffed, I did my best today to show you what that looks like. Overall length, from edge to edge this direction is 47 inches long. Overall width, that's from front to back is 20 inches. And the overall height from bottom to top is 20 inches.I do have this stuffed with a lot of thing, but I do want to show you the inside here.

It's the same construction inside and outside. It's just a nice durable design. So if you're looking for the amount of space that you'll have in another measurement, instead of cubic feet. Just take those measurements I gave you, 47 inches long by 20 inches wide, by 20 inches tall; and because this a thinner construction you know we're not looking at a quarter inch, we're looking at about an eighth of an inch thick. That's going to be basically the inside dimensions of the bag as well, 47 long, 20 inches wide, 20 tall.That's going to do it for today's look at the Maxx-Tow cargo bag with the included mounting straps.

I haven't got to use it yet. However this product seems to be made of good quality. Which is why I purchased this particular one from this website. It's nice and big for our family of 5 traveling. Lots of tie down points makes me feel comfortable it will not be going anywhere. 583031

Good construction and easy to use. 482354

Perfectly sized for my 48" hitch carrier. Waterproof as advertised (18 hours on the road with heavy storm rainfall) and heavy duty zipper with flap ensure everything is secure and out of the weather. etrailer delivers the correct product on time where failed me on both. Would highly recommend and purchase from in the future! 441541

wow. exactly right size and seem sturdy. price was good too. thanks 441267

This was used on a 2016 Subaru Forester with a Curt cargo carrier. Truthfully, I'm not sure how to rate this product. The first time I used it, it got a hole burned in it from the exhaust gasses. It is not a fault of the quality of the bag, but a failure of the cargo carrier being at the same height as the exhaust tip. It took longer than expected to get a replacement, so I have not used the bag with the cargo carrier attached to an adapter that moves everything safely away from the exhaust gasses. 464183

This product is simply awesome. Well worth the cost. Used it for many tailgates, luggage and Christmas presents. In fact this year I transported a whiskey barrel in it without any issues. Good quality with an outsanding zipper and reliable, secure straps. Waterproof!! BUY IT if this is what you're looking for! 594484

We took a trip to Disney World with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren and needed more luggage space. The MaxxTow Cargo Bag was just what we needed. It fit perfectly in the cargo carrier and provided the extra space we needed for luggage. The bag is well built and very easy to attach to the carrier. 582639

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier Bag?

  • Mounting and Using the MaxxTow Cargo Bag
  • The MaxxTow Cargo Bag with Straps, part # MT70209 mounts to a cargo basket with loop around, tightening cam straps that are connected to reinforced points on the top of the bag to help keep the bag shaped to its cargo and held down. The bag doesn't have an internal structure so that it can fold flat for storage. Your gear loaded in the bag will help provide that structure. I suggest loading heavier, bulkier items like coolers on the outside to help provide a structure to the bag. If...

  • Cargo Weight Capacity of Hitch Carrier Used on Honda CR-V
  • It sounds like you have a lot of cargo to transport in and on your Honda CR-V. Hitch carriers like the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 are a great way to move heavy cargo items that might be too difficult to get up on your roof. Most vehicle roofs are limited to a weight rating of 165-lbs or less and this is only a fraction of the weight that can be carried on a hitch carrier. But these hitch carriers are not intended to hold a large rooftop cargo box. The issue is that such a...

  • Equipment Needed to Use the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70107 with a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13153 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe as long as it is an SE or Limited. For wiring (if that is what you meant at the end) you will need the Curt T-Connector # C56184 since you don't have the factory tow package. To mount the 4-Way you can use brackets # 18144 and # 18140. The 52x18 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70107 is a great choice for a cargo carrier.
