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

Video Transcript for etrailer Cargo Bags 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.

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 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.

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

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 fit my needs perfectly, it seem to be watertight (but have only tested with a hose) its big and sturdy. Plan on taking a 1400 mile trip and butting this cargo bag to good use. 131376


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.

Great product. Took it to Adirondacks for 10-day canoe trip with scout troop. Stores a lot; no water leakage while traveling in the rain. 550783

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.

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.

I purchased this cargo bag before Christmas to make a 945 mile trip to visit family. I fit 4 suit cases (1 Large, 1 Medium, & 2 Small) and 3 duffles and 3 winter coats. I still had some room for more coats. It rained for 6 of the 14 hour trip. It work very well with no water getting in the bag and no wind drag as it was on a hitch rack behind the Tahoe. It folded away and stored easily in a small duffle while not in use. My brother and father were impressed with the amount of gear it handled and may be purchasing for themselves. I will definitely recommend this bag to anyone looking for a simple cost effective solution to carry luggage without putting a box on the top of your vehicle....which will cost more $$$ and more gas. Excellent product! 62832

Well, its been over a year since purchasing the cargo bag. It has been used several times with the same outstanding results. Tons of stuff packed in and all dry when taken out upon arrival. We travelled from Georgia to New York during the blizzard this year and all was clean

Advice to others: Beware your exhaust! This 20cu ft bag was exactly what I needed to fit on my existing rack. The rack was from an older vehicle but we used it on our 6000km road trip two weeks ago for extra storage as the car itself doesn't hold a lot. The only problem I had with the bag was really a problem with the rack being in line with my exhaust - On the first day, my exhaust burned/melted a hole through the bag, through a duffle bag, and through my clothes! :( One of the straps melted too. For the other 5 days of driving, we didn't fill the bag completely and left about 1 foot of space to accommodate the exhaust, thereby giving me 4 feet of storage space instead of 5. I imagine if the rack was elevated somehow even 4-6 inches, this wouldn't have been an issue. Apart from that, we were very pleased with the construction of the bag. 281681

Had this for a year now and used it a few times. Mainly bought it last year for our annual trek to the land of Mickey in FL from TX. After two April trips through storms where we were absolutely pummeled with rain, this bag worked like a CHAMP! All contents in the cargo bag were nice and dry and makes for a truly handy place to throw/retrieve stuff while on a road trip. Strap system is excellent, provides easy access and because it is zippered shut, you can just throw blankets and stuff in it without having to pack/secure them. Just toss in what you need, zip it shut, tighten down the straps and hit the road! I am a retired sailor that used to work in an environment where we had to lash EVERYTHING down or it would get sucked into a propeller. So it is in my nature to secure the crap out of everything, let me tell you, this could not function any easier or be more secure, ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!! Thanks eTrailer - this is a TOTAL WINNER!! And please, DO NOT TINKER WITH THIS PRODUCT!! 248799

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

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 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.

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

Good bag, straps are a bit confusing at first, but makes sense after you use it a few times. These are nylon and appropriate for the job. My initial concern was if the straps would pull off the bag, but they are very mounts securely affixed and are not an issue after using this rig ~5 times in the 12 months of ownership. Have been in wet conditions with this bag 1 time and it kept everything dry. Otherwise, the thing smells funny as you would expect, but does not make the stuff you put in the bag smell funny. Zippers are my biggest concern and for that I dock it 1 star. They must be used mindfully. I would not rip pull this thing, pull the zippers at a slightly off center angle or zip over oblong objects, ever! I am careful to align the sides and not allow contents to misshape the bag when zipping. Zippers are not "flimsy," but they are the weakest link, yes over the tie down mounts. 399735

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

It rained almost our entire trip and the weather proof bag was a life safer!!! We almost went with the weather resistant bag but decided on the weather proof bag at the last minute and were thankful we did. We have an Acadia and purchased the deeper 24" rack. Even though it is heavier and the recommended custom fit bag is taller it paid off for our camping trip. It held a large AND small cooler plus 6 lawn chairs, an extra large tent bag, a folding table, a cooking rack, pans, bedding, 4 air mattresses and other misc bags. We were extremely pleased because it kept everything contained and DRY! The rack and bag are both extremely durable and we will use this every time we take a long trip to save leg room inside the vehicle. We have used a roof rack in the past and items are much easier to access on the back rack when making pit stops along the way. Can't wait to use it for our next "regular" long distance trip to store luggage and souvenirs instead of camping supplies. 289232

We ordered this cargo bag about a year ago and put it immediately to use on our trip from Texas to Colorado, about 1200 miles one way. We purchased it for use in the open bed of our 2011 Ford Ranger. It holds an amazing amount of bags and gear, seems to be tough enough to withstand the elements, and was just the right length for the Ranger's 6 foot bed. We'd hoped to test it in the rain but we didn't have a drop of rain over the entire 2400 or so miles. Considering the material and the bag's design, including the deep overhang of the cover over the length of the zipper, my best guess is that it would keep everything nice and dry. We'll be giving it another test this summer. I would definitely recommend this bag. 518297


Comments

Were glad youre liking your new cargo bag! The bag is water resistant, and will do a good job of keeping water out under normal circumstances, but in a heavy downpour rain might find its way in. It would still be a good idea to protect anything that cant get wet by wrapping it in plastic.

Bag is big enough to fit our four pieces of luggage plus extra stuff, more than big enough for our family of four. I have traveled from CA to MN 2 times with this bag, works great. The included straps stayed secure and the construction of the bag a fairly heavy duty, should last quite a few years. My only complaint is during periods of heavy rain while traveling down the highway water will enter the bag. It does enter slowly but once it gets in it can’t drain out therefore the bag will slowly fill with water. If you are expecting to encounter rain ensure that you cover the outside of the bag with a tarp or like item. 519043

We are very disappointed with the quality of this item. One of the three cinch straps ripped off within a week or two of owning it. The zipper constantly snags and has one bent portion so 1/6 of the zipper is completely unusable. During snags, pulling can rip the other side of the zipper from the fabric, making ours no longer waterproof. We like the concept, couldn't be more bummed that it needs replacement so soon (honestly needed replacement within three months). 519437

I used this cargo bag with my cargo carrier and it worked as it should. Heavy duty bag and tie down straps. When we got to our destination in Utah, there was a thunderstorm and the bag kept the contents clean and dry. 583008

This bag does what it’s supposed to do and it does it well. The reasons for 4-stars instead of 5-stars: it’s supposed to be pretty rugged and it is, although I find myself fighting with the zipper at times to zip around the corners—not a big deal but a deal nonetheless. The second reason is twice I’ve had the straps come lose driving on the highway then had to stop at a rest stop to tighten. I’ve since prevented it from happening a third time by clamping all of the straps below the buckle so it’s much less likely to wiggle loose. Bottom line: I’d buy another one when I wear this bag out. 582397

Bag arrived within three days from order date! It fit perfectly in the carrier I also purchased at the same time, which fits perfectly in the new etrailer tow hitch that I also purchased at the same time! Love these guys and had a great experience with my first order!! 497318

We have made great use of the rear end carrier we purchased from your company. It served us well on our 13,000 plus cross-country journey to the eastern provinces of Canada and back through a variety of weather conditions without a problem. The weather proof cargo bag purchased with the carrier also proved itself more than up to the tasks required of it. We did experience some scraping of the bottom of the carrier on some uneven roads and steep parklot entrances. You may want to look into altering the design slightly by raising the platform a few inches thus alleviating the problem. 497378

I used this with the Surco 24x60 carrier and I am very happy with it. Heavy vinyl (I think) fabric, good lashing points, fits this carrier perfectly and roomy enough for my uses. I have driven down some pretty dusty roads and this cargo bag kept everything clean and dust free. 492748

we bought this bag to place in a cargo rack that sits on a hitch at the back of our jeep. We have a van-type RV and tow the Jeep, having to use the Jeep to transport all of the outside items such as patio mat, chairs, etc. All of that stuff and more ( tables, fire pit and grill) fit in the bag. We travelled for 5 months last summer, and the bag not only protected everything inside, but was very durable. If the zippers are kept lubicated they slide very easiluy. The only negative is that both zipper tabs broke,due to the constant use. I solved this by sewing a small leather tab on each of the zippers. Other than the tab failure, this bag is a wonderful product which I would buy again. 478209

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


  • What is the Best Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for My 2012 Ford Edge Crossover
  • The hitch mounted cargo carrier that is selected most by our customers that have a 2012 Ford Edge, is the Pro Series 24 x 60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153. This carrier is not a folding style carrier like the one you referenced though, but does have a larger platform and cutouts to insert taillights, like part # 98174LED, if the cargo you will be carrying might cover the vehicle taillights. If you like the folding option, the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18151, that you referenced is our best...

  • Can The Extra Large Cargo Bag, # 988501, Fit On A 20 Inch X 60 inch Cargo Carrier
  • The Extra Large Cargo Bag, # 988501, measures 59 inches long by 24 inches wide, so it will work best on a 24 X 60 cargo carrier. It is a soft flexible bag and will fit most cargo carriers. It will work on your 20 X 60 cargo carrier with no problem. The full width of the 24 inch cargo bag will not be used on a 20 inch wide carrier. I also have the Rola Expandable Cargo Bag, # 59102, which is expandable. It will fit both the 20 X 60 cargo carrier and the 24 X 60 cargo carrier. I am...

  • The highest weight capacity roof rack that we have for your 2017 Subaru Forester comes from Rhino-Rack and includes the Aero Crossbars, part # RRVA126B-2 for Black or part # RRVA126S-2 for Silver, and the SX Series Legs # RRSX100. This roof rack has a weight capacity of 175 lbs and will only fit your Forester is it has factory raised side rails that run front to back. If you have a naked roof with no existing rails or crossbars then you will need to go with the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof...

  • Cargo Carrier with Spare Tire Clearance for 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • As a first step, you will need to determine what kind of clearance you will need. Measure from the hitch pin hole rearward until you clear the furthest rearward portion of the spare tire. The cargo carrier you choose will need to have a shank that is longer than that dimension. The FAQ article I've linked for you shows how to take that measurement. If your Wrangler has the stock tire size, this distance will be around 6 inches, but if you have larger tires, this distance could be greater....

  • Which is Better for Transporting Cargo Hitch Cargo Carrier or Roof Cargo Bag
  • The biggest pro for a roof cargo bag is that the price is a bit lower due to the fact you only need to buy the bag. With a hitch cargo carrier you have to buy and install the hitch, buy a cargo carrier, and buy a bag. Aside from that the hitch option is easier to install as you aren't reaching on the roof of the vehicle. The cargo is more out of the wind/weather etc so it will be better protected and is typically better secured since hitches mount directly to the vehicle frame. Since...

  • Recommendation for a Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag for a 2007 GMC Yukon XL
  • Attaching a cargo carrier on your 2007 GMC Yukon XL is an easy process and combine it with a heavy duty cargo bag you will create tons of room in your vehicle. To start with I recommend the Pro Series 24x60 Cargo Carrier # 63153 which is not only economical, but, also large enough to carry most anything. The picture is of this carrier on a 2013 Yukon XL. I have also attached a short installation video on a similar vehicle. Next, I highly recommend the Extra Large Cargo Bag # 988501...

  • Is the a Risk Carrying a Cargo Bag on a Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier on a 2007 Nissan Murano
  • I have a few recommendations for you, however, there is a risk of any type of fabric or plastic material being damaged on a cargo carrier with vehicles that have exhaust pipes exiting straight back like your 2007 Nissan Murano. If a hitch mounted cargo carrier option works best for your needs, I recommend choosing a cargo carrier that offers the most clearance between the exhaust tips and the carrier. The Pro Series 24 x 60 Cargo Carrier, # 63153, that you referenced will offer approximately...

  • Cargo Carrier Options for 2015 Toyota Highlander with Panoramic Sunroof and Factory Roof Rack
  • Panoramic sunroofs and other such glass structures built into a vehicle roof are not designed to carry weight. Your Highlander owner's manual should indicate what the roof weight capacity is, and chances are that it also says not to place any cargo at all on top of the panoramic sunroof. If this is the case, your options are to install a metal roof basket or ABS plastic cargo box on the existing crossbars, or to use a 2-inch hitch-mount cargo carrier like # C18153 along with a weatherproof...

  • Fit of Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02 on 2006 Chevy Suburban
  • To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, part # M2205-01-02 will fit your Suburban, you will need to take a quick measurement. Measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. If this distance is less than about 2 inches, then the carrier will fit. If not, you will not be able to slide the shank into the receiver far enough for the hitch pin holes to align. Carpod offers # M2200-2201 that offers a bit more clearance, if your distance...

  • Extra Large Cargo Bag Compatiblity with Curt Hitch Mounted Folding Cargo Carrier 24 by 60
  • The Extra Large Cargo Bag with 18 cubic feet of storage # 988501 will work with the Curt 24 inch by 60 inch Folding Cargo Carrier # C18153. We do not show a compatible light kit that will fit this carrier. I pulled one option that we had in the warehouse but unfortunately the vertical bars that currently have reflectors on the Curt Folding Cargo Carrier were too wide. Therefore we do not have a compatible light kit that can be easily installed without modifying either the cargo carrier...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Lighting for 2014 Acura MDX
  • Everything looks perfect! Starting with the wiring harness, the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118628 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2014 Acura MDX and is exactly the harness that I would recommend. This custom-fit harness will install by connecting directly to the built-in port behind the driver side trim panel. This will give you a 4-Way at the rear of your MDX to connect with and power a trailer's signal lights. I have attached an installation video on your...

  • 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...

  • Largest Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Bag Recommendation
  • The absolute biggest cargo bag we offer designed for hitch mounted cargo carriers is the part # HCR635. This bag has dimensions of 72" long x 32" wide x 26" tall when expanded so it would be a bit deeper than the part # 988501 that you referenced.

  • Hitch, Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag Recommendations for 2015 Acura MDX
  • You've already got a pretty good line on what you're needing! The Draw-Tite # 75225 Class III trailer hitch you mentioned would work great. The Curt # C18153 cargo carrier you mentioned is one of our best sellers, it would be fully compatible with both the hitch and your vehicle. The folding portion is integral to the carrier, it isn't removable. The # 988501 cargo bag is exactly what I'd recommend to keep road grime and rain from damaging your cargo. For safety's sake, I always recommend...

  • 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.

  • Cargo Bag Recommendation for a Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Cargo Basket
  • I think you might mean the Yakima LoadWarrior, # Y07070. I could not find any information on a LoadMaster. There are specific bags that are designed for use on the roof of a vehicle. The Rightline bag, # RL100S20, will fit nicely in the 44 by 37 cargo basket. The bag is 44 inches long and 36 inches wide. Another option that will fit nicely is # RL100A20 which is 44 inches long and 34 inches wide. It has 15 cubic feet of space too. I have linked a video of this bag for you. To make...

  • Opening Truck Tailgate With Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Installed
  • If the # M2200-01-02 Carpod Cargo Carrier is collapsed down (see photo), you'll be able to open your tailgate, but if the carrier is in its set-up position, the nearest wall of the carrier will be 4 inches rearward of the hitch pin hole. This wouldn't allow enough room to lower the tailgate. We do offer carriers that are placed further away from the bumper, like the Curt # C18153. To see if this carrier would allow your tailgate to open when loaded, open the tailgate and measure 19...

  • Can 2 Cargo Bags be Stacked on Top of Each Other on a Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • I have not heard of anyone stacking two of cargo bag # 988501 on top of a carrier such as # 63153 but as long as they are properly secured to the carrier and you are within the capacity of the carrier it should work just fine. For this type of application I strongly recommend using a cargo net such as # EM01010 to help keep everything in place.

On many of the newer trucks they will usually have tie-down points located in the truck bed to tie-down any cargo. You could use the straps that come with the cargo bag or you could also use a truck bed cargo net that will tie-down and trap or hold...

  • Recommended Folding and Non-Folding Cargo Carrier Options for 2004 Toyota Highlander
  • For a folding carrier, I really like the Curt 24x60 Carrier, part # C18153. The carrier features a long shank, which allows plenty of clearance between the basket and the rear of the vehicle, which allows the basket to fold up before it hits the rear bumper of the vehicle. The # C18100 is a smaller, but much lighter option. If the 19x60 size works for you it would also be a good choice, but it would sit closer to the rear bumper. You'll need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole...
