etrailer Cargo Bag

etrailer cargo bag

This extra-large, waterproof 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.


Waterproof Nylon with Watertight Seams

Waterproof 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 waterproof 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

Cargo carrier bag was better than I expected. Well constructed. Excellent material. Delivery was expedited at no extra charged. When I put it in use, I'll send a photo 58604


Comments

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.

I purchased this to use for weatherproof storage in a truck bed (when space allows) as well or hitch mounted cargo tray. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but the construction looks better than I was expecting. Heavy duty all around and much better than the cargo bags I saw at the local sporting goods stores. Unless it leaks (I doubt it will based on the zipper design), I'm extremely happy with the purchase. Beyond the actual product, I have to say that ETrailer was the best online buying experience yet. I ordered on a Sunday afternoon, received an automated order confirmation email right away, another email within an hour letting me know that the product was in-stock at their distribution facility and should ship the following morning. This shipping confirmation and tracking numbers were emailed Monday, it was delivered Tuesday (I did not pay for expedited shipping), and I received a final email Wednesday following up to ensure there were no problems with the order and I was satisfied! 61567

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

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

The bag is also wonderful...large, secure and waterproof. Well...not quite anymore, a mouse decided to chew a hole in it this winter in the garage....so will have to try to patch it. :-First time a company has ever checked on their products a year after! Thanks! I will certainly contact you if I have other needs! Jan

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! 147197

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

The cargo carrier bag seems to be excellent quality. I haven't had a chance to use it yet so can't comment on the durability or water resistance of the bag but it has a thick, tough, rubber-like coating and looks like it should hold up well. I can, however, comment on the quality of service provided by etrailer.com. Several months ago I ordered a replacement grille for my truck from them. That purchase and this recent one have made me a loyal customer. Both items were shipped immediately and arrived sooner than I expected. Tracking information is available on their website that even includes a little map showing the progress of the package across the country, something I've never seen from any other on-line distributor. Prices are competetive and I have a high level of confidence in the knowledge and integrity of the people at etrailer. I highly recommend this company. 13899

Ive had this bag for about a year now. I have only used it a few times but it has certainly lived up to and beyond my expectations. Everything is dry and the bag is solid - no tears or apparent weak spots.Very happy!

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

I bought the cargo bag about 5 years ago and just got a second one. The first one was used a lot, about 60 days a year. It is on the back of our motorhome. It is used to house skis and gear in the winter and firewood and climbing gear in the summer. Thus, it was used in very cold and very hot and dusty conditions. The reason I had to buy a new one was the zipper finally gave out. The bag had a few holes, from sharp stuff and the straps were worn and broken from the sun and abuse. I liked the bag so much that I got another one. It held up to freezing temps and heavy abuse. If I was able to use it over 300 times in 5 years that is only about 25 cents per use. I would recommend lubricating the zippers often to help them stay moving in cold and extreme heat. Now the old bag is a cover for my snow thrower and still providing usefulness. 166455

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

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. 154519

Purchased this for an upcoming trip out west. Was a little concerned about the size. Some of the images of the bag sitting on a rack mounted on a vehicle make it look too big. In addition to the bag, also ordered a 60x24 hitch mount carrier (63253) and the light kit (20174). All products came shipped in the same box and arrived when promised (2 days). So far, have not had any real world experience with it but I am happy with the purchase. The material looks like it will hold up well. The bag's construction looks heavy duty. We did load some luggage into it to see how much room we will have. We should be able to get 6 suitcases and maybe a duffel bag or two in it. So happy I did not go with the smaller size.

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. 148986

This bag is bomber proof. Have taken on two different long camping trips (1,500 miles of driving) through rain, highway, dirt roads and 105 degree + desert temps and it's been fantastic. Purchased for the 20" deep rack and it works fine. Tie downs keep everything in place. Can fit an ENORMOUS amount of gear inside. I keep the cooler and food in the Suburban and use this for tents, duffles, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, etc. The zipper is heavy duty, the bag has an over flap that covers the zipper with Velcro fasteners to keep it down. All gear arrives at destination dry and clean. On a 2009 Suburban, with the 20" x 60" rack, there is no concern on tailpipe exhaust/heat hurting the bag. Highly recommend. 51802

Have yet to use this carrier but am impressed by initial appearance. Bag looks sturdy and well built. Material looks like it will hold up well. Like the zipper being covered. Like that the bag zips from center to outside for ease of use. Super big. I think this is just what we were looking for to tow on platform behind our smaller motorhome for camping. Appears it will hold portable gas firepit, propane tank, folding chairs and table , small Weber grill and whatever, etc, etc, etc without a hitch. Large capacity, 20 cu ft I think. For its low price I think we will find it a winner. It will also tow cargo on the same tow platform behind our Landcruiser. Win-win. 329669

Great bag! Perfectly fits my cargo tray. It’s sturdy and really does keep the contents dry. I know this because during my first camping trip with this bag, I was stuck in my tent for two days during a monsoon. Everything was soaked, but this bag stayed dry inside. If I have one complaint (and it’s a small one) it’s the tabs on the zipper pulls. They are quite thin and bend easily. I’d like to see a more heavy duty tabs on the zippers. 446839

Very strong product. I just used it for my families vacation to the beach packing it full of beach chairs, buggies, toys, etc. it is very well constructed and holds a lot of items. It goes on very easy. The zipper is heavy duty as well and the top velcros seamlessly across the top. The straps seem to work good but I supplemented them with some heavy duty cargo straps to make sure it wasn't coming off of the cargo carrier. I had a bad experience in the past with a different product so I may be a little more paranoid than others. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to increase their storage capacity while traveling. 140098

I am amazed at the amount of gear that I got in the bag. It was perfect for my hunting/camping trip. I was able to get 3 tents, 5 sleeping bags, 5 pillows, 4 camping chairs, 3 duffel bags full of clothes, and some other small misc items. I was skeptical about how "weatherproof" the bag really was, but when our camping trip was cut short by a very large thunderstorm the bag became a safe haven for all of our gear that needed to stay dry. After arriving home to unpack the majority of our waterlogged gear, everything in the bag was completely dry. I used this bag in my roof mounted cargo basket and it was a great fit! 103445

I purchased this bag to use with a luggage carrier that attaches to my receiver hitch. We put our luggage in it for a 1200 mile trip, it rained for nearly the first 500 miles. When we stopped first the first day of traveling everything was completely dry. The way this bag is constructed is very impressive, with the included tie down straps that were a snap to attach to the tie down rings made on the bag to attaching to the carrier itself. I keep checking the tie downs straps the first couple of stops then never bothered checking again till we got to our destination. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. 261047

I choose this large carrier bag to replace a damaged Everthere carrier bag. This one fit the Everthere carrier (actually it is a bit larger than the actual carrier), one of the few that would. The strapping system worked well, the system included clasp devices if your carrier doesn't have holes in the side rails (mine did so I didn't need the clasps, but they are included). The strapping attachment to the bag was very heavy duty and didn't show any sign of stress when the straps were pulled tight. We went through some very heavy thunderstorms with torrential rain and everything inside stayed completely dry. 53793

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. 142243

I purchased this item to use as a waterproof catch-all bag to toss in the bed of my F-350 4x4, especially on camping/fishing trips. Ends up that we take a lot of small things that would fly away if not secured properly, and this bag lets me put them all in one place and then secure them to the truck all in one fell swoop (instead of individually). Works great for tackle boxes, life jackets, rain gear, extra clothing, kayak seats/paddles, and even the unexpected trip to the grocery store. Its nice when your kayak seat and life jacket are dry when you launch on a cold winter morning. 330974

We purchased The Curt Cargo carrier for a family trip to Florida. It was amazing! It was large, sturdy, and very well made. My husband said he could not feel any difference while driving with this attached. Our Yukon drove smoothly without a lot of movement. We also bought the Cargo Bag with mounting straps that was waterproof! It was fantastic! It kept everything dry! We hit several rain events along the way. I would definitely recommend these two products without reservation. The price was very reasonable and the service was excellent!! Thank you for making our trip a success!! 400063

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. 275526

A good ordering experience! Not only were the items packaged all together and shipped promptly, shipping information was provided ASAP, and easy to track to delivery. While I haven't actually used the carrier, I can say that assembly was a snap. I strongly recommend inventorying carrier hardware before starting assembly, so that the procedure is pretty much intuitive once you begin. Also, I'd recommend putting tape or something over the 8 bolts that afix the logo plates, to prevent vibration damage to the fabric carrier bag, if used. Light kit installation was equally simple. 7865

Very pleased with the carrier. Well constructed. Securely mounts to hitch receiver so there is no rattling or movement. It is a bit heavier than I expected, but that is understandable due to the construction. I am still able to install it an uninstall it by myself, but a second person makes it a breeze. I added the enclosed cargo bag and was amazed how much it held. It added waterproof protection for all of the luggage. The only improvement that I can think of would be to have it lock in the folded up position, as you can't travel with it folded up, but that's very minor. 421150

24x60 cargo rack I received expidited shipping for my purchase which was unexpected and great. I just finshed assembly and everything went together with no problems. The cargo carrier bag looks nicer and more water proof than I expected but haven't had it out in the elements as yet. We also purchased and installed the light kit which installs very easily, but as others have note, the wire harness is too short, ie. will not reach the plug on the vehicle. A $5.00 extension (18") from Walmart was an easy remedy. All in all I am very pleased and would definatley reccomend. 5182

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...

  • How To Strap Down the Etrailer Cargo Bag # 988501 In The Bed Of a Truck
  • To tie down the etrailer Cargo bag, part # 988501, inside your truck bed I would recommend to inspect the inside of your truck bed and see if there are any tie-down points or hooks located at the front, back and/or sides of the truck bed. 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...

  • 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 # 7330 to help keep everything in place.

  • Fit of Pro Series # 63153 Cargo Carrier on 2014 GMC Acadia
  • To determine if the Pro Series # 63153 cargo carrier (nice choice, by the way!) will work well with your Acadia, first make sure it has a 2 inch receiver hitch. The inside dimension of the receiver opening, not the outside should measure 2 x 2 inches. Next, you'll need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole in your receiver rearward until you clear the rear bumper (the help article I've linked you to shows exactly how to do this.) The cargo carrier has a hitch pin hole to closest...

  • 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...

  • What Material is the etrailer Cargo Bag Made of and What Size Carriers Will it Fit
  • Depending on the height of the cargo carrier and how far away it is from the exhaust will determine on if the bag is in jeopardy or not. If the exhaust exits at a downward angle, there should not be any problem. But if it exits directly at the carrier, there could be problems if it is too close. The etrailer.com Extra Large Cargo Carrier Bag, # 988501, is made of very heavy duty PVC coated nylon ripstop material that is rainproof and heavily constructed. Under normal driving conditions,...

  • 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 a Soft Cargo Bag 988501 Be Fitted with Internal Frame
  • The Rola Expandable 11.5-Cubic-Foot Cargo Bag # 59102 is similar to the etrailer soft cargo bag # 988501 except the etrailer bag offers much higher capacity with 20-cubic-feet of internal volume. Either of these cargo bags could be fitted with an internal structure made of PVC tubing but generally soft bags like these rely on their contents to help control their shape. We do also offer walled steel cargo carriers like the Carpod # M2200 and # M2205 as well as enclosed carriers like the...

  • Recommendations For Carrying 4 Pairs of Skis & Luggage On 2011 Ford Flex w/o Factory Roof Rack
  • For your 2011 Ford Flex without roof rails and extended moon roof, I would recommend installing a roof rack system to carry your skis. For carrying your luggage, I would recommend installing a hitch mounted cargo carrier, for which you would need to install a trailer hitch on your Ford Flex. For a roof rack, I would recommend Thule Roof Rack For Ford Flex, part # TH480R, THARB60, THKIT1518, which includes everything needed to mount to the roof of your 2011 Ford Flex. To mount 4 pairs...

  • Recommendation for Largest Aluminum Folding Cargo Carrier and Waterproof Bag
  • Thanks! We work very hard to keep a killer website and I'm glad that you found it helpful. The 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18100, is a great option. This carrier is constructed of durable aluminum making it light weight and rustproof. For added convenience, this carrier folds up and out of the way when not in use. I recommend that you take a couple measurements on your 2012 BMX X5 to make sure that the carrier will clear the rear bumper when using the folding feature. Measure from...

  • Cold Weather Performance of Cargo Bags
  • Carpod was not able to provide me with any details about how the bag would perform in sub-zero temperatures. The polyester material of the bag seems a bit thin to me, leaving me doubtful about its super-cold weather performance. I like the Extra Large Cargo Bag, part # 988501. The bag has a large 18 cubic foot capacity and is constructed of a thick PVC coated ripstop nylon for maximum durability. The material is waterproof, but we cannot accurately describe the bag as waterproof because...

  • 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...
