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 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

Used this on our 10 hour trip. Our clothes stayed dry. We did buy bungee cords to strap it down. The ones that come with it are not great. 620330

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the reply and feedback after a year of using your cargo bag. This bag is covered under a limited lifetime warranty. I have passed your information along to one of our customer service representatives, and they will be in contact with you regarding a warranty replacement.

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 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

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

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

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.

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 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


Comments

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

The carrier, bag and anti-rattle bolt are excellent. Although a nut and washer were missing from the parts bag, etrailer offered to send the missing parts or reimburse me since I had a pending trip. That is what can be expected, excellent parts and outstanding customer support. 642217

I used the cargo trailer immediately but did not have an immediate need for the cargo bag. When I finally did use it, everything inside it was drenched the next day and there was standing water in the bottom. The zipper was closed tight, the Velcro flap was covering the zipper, and the rain that fell throughout the night was not what I would consider overly excessive, torrential, or blown horizontal by strong winds. I threw the bag away and would not count on it for any actual water resistance. It isn't a reflection on the trailer or the idea, but clearly something was very wrong in my case. 639175

I was really impressed with this product! It is crafted well, from the covered zippers to the placement of the straps. I encountered rain, sunshine and snow on it's maiden voyage with not a speck of dirt or moisture on the inside. I have had it stuffed to the gills as well as partial full and it doesn't change it's performance. I can't recommend this bag enough. I will say the bag may hold enough you can get in trouble on your weight! 614971

Used this etrailer 30 cu ft cargo bag for recent 2000 mile drive from NY to TX in conjunction with the etrailer 24x62 hitch mounted folding cargo carrier. Very happy with the results. Everything stayed secure for entire trip. Encountered an almost apocolyptic thunderstorm in NJ a few hours into the trip and everything stayed dry. Once suggestion is to use a storage tub inside the cargo bag so it does not collapse. I found a 64 gallon tub in local store that I used but I would use an even bigger tub if I could find one that fit. 612924

These are great bags. Totally waterproof. This bag has been through a lot already since we bought it. Torrential downpours, snow, extreme heat and sand storms.

When I received my 20 Cu Ft Cargo Bag I thought it would have some structure to it as shown in all the pictures on ETRAILER, but it didn't. It was just like any other plastic bag. I located a large tub that will just fit inside of it. It works good now and keeps things dry. Another problem, is the material it's made of, gets pretty stiff at low temperatures and i't hard to work the zipper, so I have to wait for warm temperatures before I can get into it. Other than the above problems, the Cargo Bag works for me. 590763

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

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

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 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 awesome. Went through a mild rain storm and everything was dry inside. No complaints and would definitely recommend. Great product.

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


  • Comparing the etrailer Cargo Bag part # 988501 and the Rola Rola TuffBak Cargo Bag Part # 59119
  • The only difference between the etrailer Cargo Bag part # 988501 and the Rola Rola TuffBak Cargo Bag part # 59119 besides brand is the warranty. The etrailer bag has a lifetime warranty whereas the Rola bag has a five year warranty which is why it is a bit more cost effective. I have attached a review video for you.

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation that Has License Plate Mount and Light Kit Available
  • The Rola Cargo Carrier, part # 59502 has a dedicated spot for mounting a license place if necessary and has an available light kit, part # 20174 for incandescent lamps or # 98174LED for LED lamps. This would fit the cargo bag part # 988501 that you are interested in as well so it would be your best option that wouldn't require any fabrication.

  • 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...

  • Can Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag RL100B90 Install on Vehicle with Roofline Spoiler
  • The roofline spoiler on your 2016 Nissan Rogue (thank you for the photo!) is not intended to bear any weight so if you wish to attach the Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag # RL100B90 you will need to connect the straps to your raised roof side rails and then around the sides of the spoiler to avoid placing weight/stress on it. You also need to make sure you have at least 40-inches of space between the two tail lights so that they are not blocked. This bag has no security provisions...

  • Width of etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier
  • When we measured the folding etrailer.com Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # E98872 we found it was 11-1/4" wide - the center section - when it was folded up; if you take a look at the accompanying photo you can use that as a reference to its width when completely folded up. There is no additional hardware or replacement hardware for this cargo carrier but it does come with an anti-rattle bolt which is going to keep the carrier stable in your 2" hitch. If you are looking for a cargo bag...

  • Solutions for a Cargo Carrier to Transport Golf Clubs and Other Items
  • The best option for you to carry your gear is the Curt Folding Carrier # C18151 that you mentioned. A bike rack would not be able to be mounted to the Curt carrier, but that option does exist in the form of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack # HR1450Z and adding the Hollywood Racks Hitch Cargo Carrier for Sport Rider SE Bike Rack # HR1485. You would not want to use a propane tank cover for your golf clubs. What I recommend is using a large water resistant cargo bag such as the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Cargo Basket for 2015 Subaru Forester
  • Thanks for the information. For your 2015 Subaru Forester, I recommend the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98839 which has a 2 inch receiver and is able to support tongue weights up to 525 lbs. This hitch will have the top shank of your cargo carrier sit at 14-1/4 inches off the ground. Then based on your desires for lighting since most carriers of this size have the powder coat finish to protect from rust and similar clearances, I recommend the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier for...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier, Cargo Bag, Light Kit and Lock Recommendations for 2014 Jeep Wrangler
  • Selection of a hitch cargo carrier that will fit nicely at the back of the vehicle is best done after taking one simple measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the rear-most part of the vehicle, which is typically the back edge of the rear-mounted spare tire on a Jeep like your 2014 Wrangler. You can refer to the linked article for illustration of how to measure. The Curt hitch cargo carrier # C18153 will require 10-inches of clearance when folded up and 20-inches...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe SE
  • Everything looks perfect! Starting with the trailer hitch, the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13153 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe SE and will work great. This hitch will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation. I have attached an installation video on your vehicle that you can use for reference. Moving on to the cargo carrier, the Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier # C18153 that you also mentioned will work perfectly with...

  • Highest Rated Weight Capacity Crossbars for a 2017 Subaru Forester
  • 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...

  • Will the Curt Cargo Carrier C18153 Fit on a 2012 Yukon GMC Denali
  • To find out whether or not the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 will fit on your 2012 GMC Yukon you will need to take a few measurements. When the cargo carrier is folded down the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier is 19 inches. When you fold the carrier up that distance changes to 9 inches. If you go out to your Yukon and the distance from the center of your hitch pin hole to the closest part of your vehicle is less than 9 inches and you have a 2 inch trailer...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Cargo Bag for a 60 Inch by 33 Inch by 24 Inch Cargo Carrier
  • Since the Let's Go Aero Cargo Bag # HCR635 is a soft bag it will fit into the cargo carrier, but you are correct the amount of the bag not used will be roughly 12 inches. This could cause some difficulty with the zipper, I would just be sure to move the zippers to the side that isn't being scrunched in and that could alleviate the problem. The closest bad to the dimensions you provided that I recommend is the etrailer.com cargo bag # 988501 that measures 59 inches long by 24 inches...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Curt Class III and Class IV Hitch Comparison for 2018 Ford Transit T350 Passenger Van
  • You are correct that we offer both Class III and Class IV 2-inch hitches for your 2018 Ford Transit T350 passenger van. If trailer towing were your intended application then the Class IV hitch # C14012 would definitely be my top recommendation since it can tow 2000-lbs more weight than the Class III model # C13193. But since your intended use is with a hitch-mount cargo carrier like # C18153 I recommend instead that you go with their Class III hitch # C13193 since it has a higher tongue...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2013 Honda Pilot
  • Yes, we had an opportunity to test fit the Curt 24" x 60" Folding Cargo Carrier, # C18153 on a 2013 Honda Pilot and I can confirm that it is a fit. There is approximately 18.5" of clearance from the lowest part of the carrier to the ground when the carrier is installed. When the carrier is folded up, there is 2" between the rear of the vehicle and the carrier. When the carrier is folded down, the rear door can be opened for access to the cargo area. I've attached a few photos of the carrier...

  • Fit of Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier # C18153 on 2011 Dodge Durango Citadel
  • The Curt # C18153 Cargo Carrier would work great for you, as long as the hitch receiver isn't recessed more than 9 inches under the vehicle (it shouldn't be). You can test this by measuring from the hitch pin hole in the receiver rearward until the furthest rear edge of the bumper is cleared. As long as the measurement you take is less than 9 inches, the carrier will be compatible. I've linked you to an article showing you how to take this measurement. The # 988501 cargo bag would work...

  • 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...

  • Availability of a Waterproof Case to Store Equipment on a Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The waterproof cargo bag I recommend for your cargo carrier is the 20 cubic feet cargo bag # 988501. It will include 6 tie-down straps to secure it to your cargo carrier, but I recommend a lock such as the Master Lock padlock # 141T to lock the cargo bag by the zippers. Simply insert the lock through both holes on the zipper to secure. I went to our warehouse to get the cargo bag and locks to ensure they fit too. See picture I included.
