etrailer Cargo Bag

etrailer cargo bag

This extra-large, water-resistant cargo bag lets you transport up to 20 cu ft of gear on your hitch-mounted cargo carrier. It's made of PVC-coated nylon material to keep your gear clean and dry. It carries luggage, skis, sports equipment, tents, sleeping bags, and anything else that will fit inside. The soft bottom of the bag conforms to your cargo carrier for a secure fit. You can also use this bag in your truck bed, in your trunk or hatch or on your roof-mounted cargo carrier.


Water-Resistant Nylon with Watertight Seams

Water-Resistant fabric

The cargo bag is constructed of heavy-duty, PVC-coated nylon 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 water-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

Zippered openingOpened etrailer bag

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 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 zipper from rust and corrosion. You can add a small padlock (131D - sold separately) to the zippers to secure your cargo.


Nylon Tie-Down Straps

Tie-down strapsTie-down straps

6 Nylon tie-down straps secure the bag to your hitch-mounted carrier or roof rack. Each strap attaches to one of the 6 integrated buckle attachments on the bag. Simply feed the short end of the strap into the buckle attachment on the bag and buckle the long end to your rack. Pull it tight and tie the excess out of the way.


Steel oval rings

There are 6 steel oval rings for fastening the straps to holes in the carrier.


Foldable Bag

The bag is flexible so you can fold it up for storage when it isn't being used.

Video Transcript for etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier Bag - Water Resistant Material - 988501 Review

Today we're going to review part number 988501. This is the etrailer extra large cargo bag for hitch mounted cargo carriers, 20 cubic foot size. Now this is an extra large weather proof bag which will protect your luggage, your camping equipment, all your gold clubs from the elements. The bag also folds flat for easy compact storage when not in use. This is a cargo bag that'll hold 20 cubic foot of your gear on your hitch mounted cargo carrier. It is a rain proof design, which offers protection from the weather. It's constructed of a nice waterproof material and then it has these flaps here that'll cover the zippers to even add extra protection from the elements.

Now, it does include these 6 tie down straps, this is to secure to the cargo carrier and again I mentioned this, I have it filled up with stuff, just to show you how big it is, but it will fold flat for easy storage. It is a double zipper, as you can see, 1 goes that way and 1 goes that way and it does go all the way around and down the side, so it opens on 3 sides. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. I just want to give you some measurements on this. Total length on this, 1 end to 1 end is going to be 59 inches. The total height on it is going to be right at 24 inches high and the depth on it is also 24 inches and again this will give you 20 cubic feet of storage space and as you can see it has the nice hook and loop fasteners. Ever so often it will help keep that flap over the zippers, just push it closed like that and again there's your double zippers, slide very easily, very strong zippers to hold up over time and your 6 straps, they do clip right up here.

There's a clip, so there's 6 spots, 3 down each side and what you do is run your strap up onto this clip, pull the other end down, wrap it around the cargo carrier in 6 different positions to hold it securely into place. That should do it for the review of part number 988501. This is the etrailer extra large cargo bag for hitch mounted cargo carriers in a 20 cubic foot size.

Our extended family needed something weatherproof to take on our annual OBX vacation....With four adults, two teens, and four under tens, it had to be sturdy and BIG! This went on top of the Explorer and held everything that we didn’t have to get our hands on right away.....fishing, crabbing, swimming, sailing....that’s where it went! The year before, we arrived the same time Hurricane Matthew did.....Last year we were ready! This is a great bag and I’d recommend to anyone who has to tie, lash, or leave something out in the weather! 612474

Patrick, it seems to be indestructible. I use it for trips to Colorado from Texas. I had to have more space after trading an F-250 for a Lexus LX570, and the bag allows me to protect and contain what we take with us for a month to the Colorado house. I have a receiver rack. I can imagine you would sell a lot of them. Works well with our arrangement.

This is one heavy duty luggage cover! The only thing I would change is that our carrier is only 44 inches long and this bag is 54 inches long. I think I can strap it down effectively. It will hold everything we need it to hold and seems extremely durable. Very prompt delivery. 113847


Comments
We used the cover only on one trip since we had a fire and the hitch carrier was burned. The cover worked fine. It is extremely heavy duty and did not leak at all even in days of significant rainfall in Florida. It is stored in the basement. At some point we may need it to travel in a pickup. The straps are a little interesting to secure and make sure they dont flap against the rear of the vehicle enroute damaging the paint, but we were able to do so effectively. Thank you for your follow up.

Cargo bag works great. It's been through rain, hail and snow and everything stays dry. Makes packing simple-just throw everything in and zip up. 438187


Comments
Still makes packing really easy. Only issue is it is no longer water proof and zippers have snapped off. Just use another tarp to wrap and some strings in broken pulls work.

The 24x60 Folding Cargo Carrier and 20 cu ft waterproof cargo bag are awesome; the best carrier and cargo bag we have ever tried. We have taken it from Houston Texas to Destin Florida, and everything went perfect. The carrier is very big and the raised sides make it safer for carrying any items and also makes it easier to strap all your stuff down. And the cargo bag is big and roomy and keeps all your stuff dry in any weather. These items are well worth the price! 402744

Still working great I would definitely recommend these products!

Comments
This was a great purchase, It held all of our equipment and kept it dry during my trips. Its just a little wide for my custom carrier I built, but tied down and traveled just fine.I have a down hitch so I can still open my back door and the lights and license plate are not covered up.

Using this bag with the Curt Cargo Tray. 18 hours of solid rain and contents were bone dry. Using it at the rear of my 24' travel trailer. Tray is 60" wide, my trailer is 87". Trailer furnace is in rear corner and ran heat all throughout the rainy period. There was plenty enough space between furnace vent and corner of Curt tray and bag. No worries that it would melt or damage bag. Very happy indeed and this combo will help carry extra camp items. 231354

I ordered the bag and Hitch Basket together in one order for a trip in July. I will follow up with a review after the trip. I can say that it was super easy to put together and the quality is evident as soon as you open the box. Super quick shipping also, ordered it Friday, got it Monday. My only question is on the back of my 2013 Durango with dual exhaust is it going to get hot enough to damage the bag when i'm going down the highway at 80mph? I did a test run without the bag and it didnt seem like the basket got hot, a little warm. Any one that has driven any distance that can let me know would be a huge relief for me. 200089

This product worked perfectly. We were able to pack 2 large suit cases, 3 smaller suit cases and a duffel bag in this cargo bag, and traveled 1700 miles round trip without any issues. we traveled through a couple of large rain storms and did not have one drop of water anywhere inside the bag. 141381


Comments
Both products have worked perfectly for my needs. The cargo rack is a great addition to my Sequoia. It allows me to accomidate 6 people in the veichical and carry all of our luggage for a 7 day trip. The cargo bag is easy to access and both water and dust proof. On a trip to Texas we encountered a lot of rain and not a got inside . I couldnt be more pleased with both.

The bag is starting to crack, but still keeps my clothes dry. We do most of our travelling in the winter, so the bag got a lot of road sand and salt which might be the cause of the cracking.

I go to a hunting lease year round just to enjoy the outdoors. When it isn't dusty, it's raining. I have been using waterproof river bags to keep my gear clean and dry but they are not large enough and I need several. The dimensions for this etrailer bag sounded like it would be OK. It was better than OK, it was perfect! The pictures show it in the back of my GMC Sierra. It is a crew cab short bed (5 /12') with a tool box. The cargo bag spans the width of the truck bed and is large enough for everything I need. I actually had trouble finding enough large items to put in it for the pictures. Now I can load the truck several days ahead and not worry about storing the stuff in my living room (my wife is ecstatic). All I have to add is my dog and ice chest and I'm ready to go. (Before you report me for animal abuse for stuffing her in the bag, my dog has the entire back seat of the truck to herself). The material of this bag is very heavy duty which should help to avoid punctures and leaks. The zipper is solid and works well. Because of its size and thickness of the material, it may need to be coaxed around the corners but just opening the front alone gives adequate access to the interior for loading. It comes with straps and rings to secure it to a hitch tray and instructions on their use. When empty, it collapses so it can be stored out of the way unlike the large plastic bins. If anything ever happens to this bag, I'll be right back buying another. 101469


Comments
After several months of use, I want to reiterate my 5 Star rating. This bag has kept my gear dry and free from dust over many trips. Dust is my main concern but it has endured some pretty long hard thunderstorms without a leak be sure the flaps are closed over the zipper. It is a pleasure to put it in the back of the truck and then toss stuff in it without concern that it will blow out or be open to prying eyes. It is very heavy duty and does get stiff during the cold. That can make zipping it up difficult. I put it in the house until Im ready to load the truck. It stays pliable for loading. The zipper is solid but resist the temptation to force it. Just hold the fabric in place and it zips nicely. Patience is key when it is cold.

Just wanted to do a follow up with you in regards with a Hitch Cargo bag I had purchased from you before the holidays. Not sure if you need my order number or not to prove it but just wanted to give some feed back. As far as the bag goes, I'm alittle disappointed in. I do like how strong and will find out soon what kind of weather it will handle going through the cold front we will be traveling through next week. What I have a problem with even in warmer weather ( between 50°-70°) the bag is very stiff, hard to handle, zip up, fold over the flaps and working with it. I know it's new so maybe as time passes it will loosen up and will be easier to work with. But as I thought about this, when we reach the cold it's gonna be basically impossible to secure and work with unless we bring it in each night into the warm hotel. Inside the Jeep would even be to cold. I am gonna try and get some other inner hard container box like things to out everything in so it will keep its shape and easier to make work in the cold. I just wish I knew I had to spend more money than expected when I thought this was all I was gonna need. 480029

Tons of room and looks great! This bag is awesome! Plenty of room to store suitcases for a family of four plus a couple of large boxes. The tie-down straps kept the bag well secured. I haven't been through any major rainshowers yet with the bag, but the light rain and snow flurries we have encountered rolled right off and everything stayed dry inside. The zippers can be a lillte bit of a challenge when getting them around the corners, but other than that the bag will zip up with relative ease. 4693

Heavy duty, has never leaked, fits the shelf very well. The straps secure it to the shelf very well. Haver never worried about it coming off or opening at highway speeds. It folds fairly compactly so storage is not an issue. When traveling with family of four it holds all the extra stuff. Very large so it holds a lot. We use it on long trips to keep the Cherokee uncluttered. Only issue is the center strap does not match up to any of the holes on the shelf we bought from etrailer. Found that I could wrap the strap around the hitch part of the shelf and that is ok. I would definitely buy again. Have bought several items over the years from Etrailer and have always been happy with the products. 739968

Worked really well on our winter trip to Colorado. I strapped this onto a Reese cargo carrier that mounts into the rear hitch. We were able to load 5 small-medium size suitcases in it with no problem. Kept everything secure and dry the whole way. 734576

So I’m currently using this bag as I type this. I drove about 400 miles with it and it was raining majority of the way. Once I finally settled down I found water in the bag. I later found out that it is seeping water through the reinforced straps on top. It’s seeping from the threads. I plan on going to a department store and buying “Never Wet” to stop the water from coming through. It is definitely “water resistant” but definitely not “waterproof”. Another pain I have is having to undo the straps in order to pull my stuff out of the bag. I’m traveling and stopping in three states and I can already tell this is going to be a hassle. This bag is pretty heavy duty so I do like that. Hopefully all goes well in my next two stops. 732234

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier Bag

  • Are My Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag Too Close to Exhaust Output on 2019 Honda CRV
    I've seen some customers who have had limited clearance between a cargo bag like the etrailer Cargo Bag # 988501 and their exhaust system and have not reported any damage to the bag since the wind will help dissipate the heat. These bags are fairly durable, but direct contact would give me more concern that exhaust is not being allowed to adequately escape, which could cause issues with carbon monoxide or issues with the functioning of the vehicle. With that being said, if you have a...

  • Stacking Multiple Cargo Carrier Bags
    I would not suggest stacking cargo bags on top of one another on the roof of any vehicle. Motion and wind could cause items to shift in the bags and create an unstable condition. The extra wind resistance could also affect the handling of your vehicle, and reduce your gas mileage. You would also have to first consider the weight capacity of the roof of your vehicle by checking the owners manual or checking with the dealership. Even one fully loaded cargo bag could exceed the roof weight...

    The etrailer.com bag, item # 988501, is not recommended to be used as a rooftop cargo bag, due to the size and height of the bag. The bag works great or a hitch mounted cargo carrier, but it's about as aerodynamic as a brick so it wouldn't be the best choice for a roof mount. As long as your vehicle has a roof rack to tie a bag down to, I would recommend the Thule Outbound Roof Rack Cargo Bag, part # TH868. This bag offers 13 cubic feet of storage, and is covered by a limited lifetime...

  • Recommendation for Weather Resistant Cargo Bag to Fit Everthere Cargo Carrier
    I have included a link to the cargo bags that we offer for hitch mounted carriers. From the research I have done, the Everthere cargo carrier bag measured 52 inches long x 24 inches wide x 18 inches deep. The bag that I recommend would be the etrailer.com Extra Large Cargo Bag, # 988501. This bag is going to be a bit longer and taller but since it is a soft bag, this shouldn't be a problem at all. I have included a short video for you. As for the Everthere company, I can not say for...

  • Cargo Bag Recommendation for a 51x17-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
    If your cargo carrier is flat without raised side rails, then the etrailer cargo Bag, # 988501, could be a good fit, even though it would overhang just a little on each side. If properly secured, it would not be an issue. If the cargo carrier does have raised rails, you would have to tuck in the bag. This would mean you would not be able to use the full 13 cubic feet as the bag would be tucked into the same dimensions of the cargo carrier. On the plus side this could help secure it (though...

  • Roof Cargo Bag, Trailer Hitch, and Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a 2015 Chevy Trax
    By XL cargo bag I believe you are talking about Rightline bag # RL100S30. This bag will fit on vehicles with or without a roof rack (side rails or crossbars). The bag is 48 inches long and 40 inches wide so compare that to the available space on your 2015 Chevy Trax. You don't want the bag hanging over the sides of the vehicle roof! If the roof rack on your Trax is just the side rails and there is no gap beneath them to attach a strap then I recommend adding the car clips # RL100600...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a 2008 Honda Pilot
    For a straight carrier that does not fold the most popular option for 2008 Honda Pilot owners is Pro Series carrier # 63153. This is a 24x60 inch carrier, fits a 2 inch trailer hitch, and has a capacity of 500 pounds but would be limited to the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. It measures 12-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. And the most popular folding carrier for 2008 Honda Pilot owners is Curt cargo carrier # C18100. This is an...

  • Will etrailer Extra Large Cargo Bag # 988501 Fit Pro Series # PS1040100 31 X 47 Cargo Carrier
    The cargo bag you asked about, part # 988501, is an extra large bag that measures 59 inches long by 24 inches wide by 24 inches tall and has a cargo capacity of 20 cubic ft. Since this bag is flexible, it would fit on a carrier that measures 48 inches by 32 inches. However, the excess material of the bag may extend over the rails of the carrier, which could cause the cargo to be unsteady. The bag comes with 6 straps that help secure it to the rails of your cargo carrier. It is constructed...

  • Skinnier Roof Cargo Bag to Fit Next to Yakima Powderhound Ski Rack
    Since you basically have 24 inches to work with on your crossbars after having the ski rack installed you would need to go with a skinnier cargo bag like the Rightline part # RL100D90 which is 16 inches wide and can carry up to 4.3 cubic feet of space.

  • Cargo Bag Recommendation for Carrying Golf Clubs on a 60 inch Wide Hitch Cargo Carrier
    The cargo bag that would work the best for you would be the etrailer.com Cargo Bag part # 988501 that you referenced. This bag is 59 inches, 24 inches wide, and 24 inches tall. It will fill out your cargo carrier just fine. The extra width that this bag has would get tightened to the cargo carrier and would not cause any fit issues. This cargo bag also has just one large compartment unlike the other bag that uses three so it would work well with your golf bags. Check out the review...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Bag Recommendation for a 60x20 Cargo Carrier
    The # 988501 that you referenced would be a little big for your 60x20 inch cargo carrier so instead I would recommend you go with the # SR8120 as it is 60 inches by 19 inches so it would fit your carrier very well.

  • Will The etrailer Cargo Bag # 988501 On A Cargo Carrier Interfere With Exhaust On A 2010 Ford Flex
    The Tow Ready 24x60 Railed Cargo Carrier, part # 63153, has an angled shank which will raise the carrier 2-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch receiver opening. This distance will help the cargo carrier clear the area where the exhaust gases would exit from the tailpipes. You can measure up 2-1/2 inches from the center of your hitch receiver on your 2010 Ford Flex and see where the cargo carrier would be located on your vehicle in relation to the tailpipes. I am including a picture...

  • Best Cargo Bag to Mount on Rola Cargo Carrier # 59502
    I would agree and going with a slightly larger cargo bag than the size of the cargo carrier gives you a little extra room to work with as needed and any extra slack can easily be tightened up. For the dimensions you mentioned of the Rola carrier part # 59502 the best fitting bag is the part # 988501 which measures 59 inches by 24 inches by 24 inches. This weather resistant bag is is well made so it will last you a long time, is water resistant so it will keep the contents dry (as long...

  • Material Thickness of the etrailer.com Cargo Bag # 988501
    The etrailer.com bag, part # 988501, is made of a very heavy duty PVC coated nylon ripstop material that is rainproof and heavily constructed. These are our best selling cargo bags and customer reviews are great for this item. There is no mention on the packaging or on the bag of the thickness of the material, but I would say that it is thicker than a pair of jeans or even a nice duffel bag for sure. This bag would work great for transporting duffel bags in the back of your pickup and...

  • Can etrailer Extra Large Cargo Bag be Used on a Roof Mounted Cargo Basket
    You could use the etrailer cargo bag # 988501 on a roof basket if you wanted to. It lacks some of the aerodynamic qualities of bags meant to go on a roof but other than that it would work. Otherwise I recommend the Rightline bag # RL100S30 which has 18 cubic feet of storage space and is designed for the rigors of roof travel. I have linked a video review of this bag for you.

  • What Roof Mount Cargo Bags Will Fit a 2014 Acura MDX with Factory Roof Rack
    There are many roof mount cargo bags that you can use with the factory roof rack on your 2014 Acura MDX. I have included a link to the options for you. You will want to measure the space available in between the front and rear crossbars. Ideally, the bag would rest in between the bars and secure to them at the front and back. The bars will prevent the bag from sliding forward or backward during starts or stops. You will need to make sure the roof and bag are clean before installation...
