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 to keep your gear clean and dry. It allows you to carry 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 rear cargo area, or on your roof-mounted cargo carrier.


Water-Resistant Nylon with Watertight Seams

Water-Resistant fabric

This 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 the bag shut.


Nylon Tie-Down Straps

Tie-down strapsTie-down straps

Six nylon tie-down straps secure the bag to your hitch-mounted carrier or roof basket. Each strap attaches to one of the 6 integrated, reinforced buckle attachments on the bag. Simply feed the short end of the strap into the buckle attachment on the bag and loop the long end around the rail of your carrier. Pull it tight and tie the excess out of the way.


Steel oval rings

If your cargo carrier has built-in tie-down points, you may be able to hook the included oval steel rings through them to secure the bag as well.


Foldable for Compact Storage

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.


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.

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.

Its still a great unit. Holding up well. No issues a year later.

We love it- its incredible how much stuff this holds- just completed a multiday car camping trip that involved 5 hours of driving in the rain and not only did it fit most of our gear- sleeping bags, tent, propane tank, camp chairs, camp kitchen, pillows etc.. it was all dry when we got to camp. Its very tough as well!

We had to drill out one side of cargo attachment because we couldn't get the pin through the hitch and bar. Thanks to May's trailer in Mansfield now it fits great. Thank you for getting it here SOOO expeditiously.

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.


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.

All products received as promised. Right on schedule. The cargo bag is awesome. Very heavy duty and big!! My wife and I both have trouble walking and we travel in a Class B+ RV.. not much storage room for 2 walkers so I thought the cargo carrier and the cargo bag would provide us the ability to bring them along. There is more than enough room... Made up an interior frame with 3/4 inch PVC so the bag wouldn't look like a crunched up trash bag .... Also shows the etrailer name. Good advertising. Lol

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.

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.


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.

Wish I would have bought this sooner. We had a 7 hour drive from Charleston to Clearwater for spring break (turned into 10) and we had 6 people in my Acura MDX. I had a carrier for my roof but there was no way to fit all the luggage into it so I purchased the Rola hitch carrier on trailer along with this cargo bag and I was able to fit five suitcases and a cooler on the thing, zipped it up, attached it with the included tie downs and we were off. Didn't even notice it was back there. The anti-sway bolt kept it in check and I just grinned as I drove by inferior carriers on other cars. IMO, this and the carrier are well worth the money

etrailer has great customer service. My package arrived when expected and I immediately received an email from etrailer asking me if I was satisfied with my order. One of my packages was slightly damaged in shipping, no damage to the item, but I did notice that clip was missing. I emailed etrailer and verified the part that was missing and immediately sent out a replacement.

Product iss great! Used this carrier in combination with the etrailer cargo bag (Item #988501) on our 13 hour trip from IL to beaches of SC and never heard or felt it. I didn't realize that this carrier hitch has a threaded hitch pin for anti-rattle, so I didn't have to use my standard hitch anti-rattle device. The assembly and installation were pretty easy and the included hitch collar made subsequent attachments to my hitch a breeze. While the included wrenches we ok, I would recommend using a socket wrench as it is much more suited for the job. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that my 2014 GMC Acadia hatch had just enough clearance to open without using the tilt feature. BTW, the tilt feature on a loaded carrier definitely requires more than one person. Only con I can think of is that the pins for the folding feature do not slide in very easily, maybe because the holes don't line up perfectly. It definitely takes some twisting of the pins at the same time as fiddling withe the angle of the carrier to get the pin thru. It is do-able, but takes some "practice" for sure. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE NOTE: After our trip I was looking for a locking hitchpin (item #e99047) and noticed that the price of the carrier was about $30 less than when I originally purchased a month earlier. etrailer does have a competitor price match guarantee policy, but nothing specific to etrailer branded products. I asked them about this and they immediately refunded the price difference. Regardless of if the had done this, I still would have purchased the locking hitchpin, but this proves their excellence in customer service.

We had just bought an etrailer cargo carrier and We were so excited for this bag. Sadly it did not hold up to the reviews or the description. Ours developed a large hole in the bottom on the second use. You would think an etrailer bag on an etrailer cargo carrier would be compatible and not have issues. But in our case this bag failed miserably. $$ down the drain.

I got this cargo bag for a big camp over trip with our dogs. Usually we are all cramped in the car.I got so much gear loaded in there that the dogs road in style with plenty of room inside the car. Though I did not anticipate rain, it came down on us. The cargo bag kept our gear completely dry. It fit securely on the carrier with the straps. I only have a picture of the bag when it was half stuffed. When it was packed for the trip it came up to about half way covering the spare wheel. If you are on the fence about buying it, I'd do it again. It's thick and sturdy material.



- 988501
by:

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.



- 988501

We have been so glad to have the cargo bag. It carries a lot of camping gears and other items. We just threw everything in it after install it to a hitch carrier for a 7000 miles road trip last year and a 5000 miles road trip this year. In general, it is waterproof. There was only very little water that got through zipper line after a long day driving during very heavy down pour rain.



- 988501
by:

I bought this cargo bag based on its dimensions. I was looking for one that would utilize the full size of my carrier, and this one does that. The zippers are quality, and the flaps covering them seal well. The straps are convenient and hold well. It is made of heavy vinyl. The pictures shows it overstuffed. I put it on the carrier and inflated it with an air hose to see how big it is. I had plenty of time to take a picture before it started sagging from deflating. I think that says a lot for how well the zippers seal.

I owned a similar product for my hitch haul but it was made out of canvas and did not repel water very well. Just used this bag on our latest family camping trip. Managed to fit all of our gear inside of it and leave plenty of room for my dog in the back of the SUV. The bag loads nice and rides well on the back of the hitch haul. There was no need for any additional tiedowns as a straps provided were sufficient to hold the bag during travel. This is an outstanding product don't think of buying anything else!



- 988501
by:

Great product. I'm very glad I got this for our 12-day 3,150 mile vacation trip! We packed it full with everything but the kitchen sink, and had room to spare! Fit nicely on the luggage hitch rack and went well on our 2013 Durango. I especially enjoyed that we could (with some precaution not to overstuff the bag) still open the back lift gate with the bag packed and in place. That was very nice.



- 988501

Excellent bag, especially fur the price. Has kept our camping gear and luggage dry on multiple trips. We have used it both on a rear hitch cargo carrier and on our trailer. Would definitely recommend it.

This has been such a great purchase for our family. A year and a half ago we moved from a mini van to an SUV. The hitch carrier and bag are the only way it works with all the kids and gear for trips. A must have for families who like to travel but need more space.

  • Cargo Basket Option for Fixed Hitch Swivel Wheel Carrier
    This is an interesting predicament you have, and the best thing I can come up with as a potential option, that would allow you to use a cargo bag and tie it down to your carrier with ratchets is a roof-mounted cargo basket, it just depends on how big you wanted one to be. Most are designed to attach to roof crossbars with clamps, but you would just not install the clamps.
