etrailer Cargo Bag

etrailer cargo bag

This water-resistant cargo bag lets you transport up to 9 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, sports equipment, 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 opening Opened 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 straps Tie-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.

Foldable for Compact Storage

Great value but not perfect. My rating reflects the fact that I beat up this bag pretty thoroughly last year. It was on the road with me for over three months of camping out of my car, from mountains to deserts to beaches. I like that it's lightweight and even partially full of gear I could lift it out of my cargo rack and stick it on a bench or the ground for extended campground stays. It kept my stuff dry and clean. The shortcomings are pretty obvious. There's no way to secure your stuff. You can put a little luggage lock on the double zipper pulls, but a box cutter will open the top in a couple seconds. The tie down stops are fine but require lots of time to reattach if you take the bag off the rack. The little velcro loops that are supposed to secure the extra length of strap are worthless and tend to fall off and disappear when the straps aren't in use. The material is prone to pinholes and other damage. Just hold it up to strong light after a trip and you'll see what I mean. A little alcohol to clean the area and some duct tape or repair patches are fine to prevent the damage from getting worse. (Shrug) I'm not sure what color would be better than black... Maybe a high visibility yellow would help prevent possible rear ending? Black sure doesn't help keep the contents cool in 100 deg desert heat. And as you can see from my photo, looks like crap after a week on the road. Would I buy it again? As an affordable soft bag to carry loose stuff in my cargo rack, ABSOLUTELY. Can I get it in yellow next time please?

Seems well made and heavy duty. Fits perfectly in my tray hauler. Holds a reasonable amount of stuff.

Was dissappointed that it had no internal structure.

The produce was inspected and no defects were found. I will try it when I travel. Thanks, Troy

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier Bag

  • The Best Options For Hauling Cargo Safely On My Roof Or In My Hitch To Free Up Space?
    Let's see what we can do. I understand your concern about theft, but in all reality all it takes is a sharp knife to cut into any soft bag and take whatever you have in there. If you're wanting to use it for more than just rooftop carrying, a cargo box isn't what you want either even though it will be more secure. That being said, I'll give you two different options, a roof option and a hitch option. Both are going to be using either our 20 cu ft bag # 988501 or our 9 cu ft bag # e98990....

  • Is etrailer Cargo Bag With Mounting Straps Totally Waterproof
    That's a good question and the "Water-Resistant" description of the etrailer Cargo Bag with Mounting Straps # e98990 means that it is fully resistant to the elements so you can absolutely use it and drive through inclement weather like rain or snow without any issue at all - your gear will definitely stay dry. It isn't deemed "Waterproof" because that would mean you could submerge it completely in water and everything would stay dry. For example (and just for the sake of explanation)...

  • Best Roof Bag for 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid LE With OEM Cross Bars
    I'm going to give you some options. Both of our Cargo Bags will fit in between your horizontal crossbars because they are both under 30" wide so you can place these two bags sideways. The smaller of our two bags # e98990 has measurements of 40" x 20" x 20" and has a capacity of 9 cu ft. Our larger cargo bag # 988501 will be a tight fit with a measurement of 59" x 24" x 24" and has a capacity of 20 cu ft. Both bags are going to have straps connected so its easy to strap it down once...

  • Best Cargo Bag for 24 x 40 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper
    I can definitely help you out with a cargo bag to use with the nifty 24 x 40 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99050. The best option for this is going to be the etrailer Cargo Bag with Mounting Straps # e98990. There are a number of reasons why I really like this bag, starting with its size. It is 40 inches wide and 20 inches deep so it is going to be a perfectly snug fit with the 40 inch wide x 24 inch deep cargo carrier. Other bags that are wider won't allow you to fully...

  • Best Roof basket For A 2021 Tahoe Z71
    I've used the etrailer cargo basket # e99054 on my Tahoe and I liked it a lot. It adds a good look all the while giving options to how long you want it to be. I would recommend getting the XL basket # e99054 as it fills up the roof which looks good and you fully utilize the space up on your roof. You would be surprised how much stuff you can get on top of your roof. I could fit basically everything I need for a week trip with multiple passengers. One thing I HIGHLY recommend is getting...

  • 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. For example, you could use the 45-3/4" Long x 36-1/4" Wide MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # MT70115 with etrailer...

  • Do I Need A Cargo Net For The Inside Of A Cargo Box Like The Yakima GrandTour # YA74FR
    We carry a bunch of cargo nets, but they are meant for use with cargo baskets and cargo carriers, not cargo boxes. That being said, the Yakima GrandTour Rooftop Cargo Box # YA74FR comes with 4 Integrated anchor points let you secure cargo inside the box. This should be plenty to secure whatever you have down in the box. If you are still concerned and or have a bunch of smaller items you plan on placing in the box, you could put all the items in our cargo bag # e98990 and then use the...

  • Best Roof Basket & Cargo Bag For 2014 Toyota RAV4 XLE
    Having installed MANY cargo baskets, I would say that the Rola Roof Cago Basket # 59504-EXT is not the hardest to install out of them all, but I do know that our cargo basket # e99032 is the easiest to install. It makes sense because we carry so many of these baskets so we get to test them all out which is why ours is the easiest to install. You do need a tool to install ours but the rola is actually really hard to turn the knobs with your hands. They use a nylon lock nut to secure it down...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For A 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia
    We do not carry a custom fit hitch for your 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon, but we have one that is adjustable the will work! This Curt hitch # C13701 can adjust from 18 to 51 inches which will work with your frame. You will have to drill some holes to make it work. You could also weld it to the frame but that is up to you. If you plan on reselling the Vanagon then I suggest a bolt on install just to save the frame just in case you needed to remove it. This is a class III hitch and would work...

  • Best Cargo Carrier with Ability to Carry Kayaks
    I have a great solution for you! It's the Yakima OffGrid, part # Y07139-09. This cargo basket has crossbars attached to allow you to mount kayak carriers and other accessories. It measures 75" long x 49" wide, so it has plenty of space. I've linked to a video review of this basket so you can see it in action. As for the kayak carriers, they need to be compatible with round bars, so I recommend the etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # e98878. They have straps included and only weigh...
