Cargo carrier works as I needed. It is close to vehicle which can make it tight to insert receiver pin ... but that was expected. Preferred the carrier close to keep cargo weight closer to vehicle rear.


The boxes the items were shipped in were completely torn open and the hitch has paint chipped on one corner, also the carrier tray is scratched on one end

Oh my goodness! Customer Service will be in contact with you.


After some careful research for my choice of carrier I got the curt 49". Well built and light weight. I also appreciated the hardware which included 4 eyebolts for tie points. The unit was date stamped in July of 20. New old stock but that's beside the point of manufacture. A rubber mallet was handy for bolt hole alignment. The carrier will last for many years and a pro is that there are no plastic corners to rot in the sun. I like the look, the size and of course the eye bolts.


Received the cargo carrier and Thule offset hitch unit all in great shape with no damage from shipping. The right angle hitch piece is due here at my home on Monday.


The Curt cargo carrier is just what I was looking for and exactly as described. Light weight and solid. Shipping was fast and correct as always from etrailer.


It seems to be a very well made product with aluminum and a steel shaft to fit the hitch. It was super easy to assemble and I did use the torque wrench. I haven't tested it out yet but I'm hopeful!


I really like this cargo carrier. Its light weight which makes it easy to install, however the hardware is missing.

Cannot use the cargo carrier without the hardware. Customer Service will be in contact with you.


Well made, welded carrier



Producdt has worked great. Used it to carry many things from logs to trash can cans. The ligh weight makes it easy to installremove but remains strong for carring items




Just recieved this carrier yesterday, so I haven't used it yet.
It does seem to be very well built. I like that its aluminum and rusting won't be an issue.



I have been carrying my Champion 4650 watt generator and a couple gas cans on this carrier. It has been rock solid and performs exactly as I wanted it to.


Trival assembly and it is indeed pretty light.
Wiggles around some, but an anti-rattle receiver lock stiffens it up nicely.


Lightweight design makes this cargo carrier a delight to use. Only possible improvement would be to add more anchoring points.


Works great as advertised. Fits perfectly in a Tesla Y, though you would often have to tip the out of the way to get the hatchback open when it is mounted, but given that a Y hitch is only class II (despite a 2" receptacle), more gear to avoid this is not practical (a Tesla Y hitch is really only for light loads). Also, this is why I bought this one, because it is light (aluminum) and so allows a bit more cargo. I also use it with a Curt anti-rattle hitch pin kit, which avoids left-right rattling while driving (get a "Thumb Socket Driver" if you do this, though, as the space near the hitch is pretty tight).


Light-weight and strong.

Jose D.


Awesome basket. Easy to install. I use it for 2 of my cars for long trips or bikes to the trails.


OK, I have just received it and put it together but have not used it, therefore I can’t tell you how great it is. But I can’t say it looks very nice, went together easily, seems very sturdy, and should serve the purpose well for why I bought it.



Update: I e used this product several times now and it is working fine.


Cargo carrier is well made and light weight due to aluminum construction. Things to note. Rack does scrape the ground on steep driveways but this can be fixed with a rising hitch. We use it on an Audi Q5 your height will vary. You will want to get one of the anti rattle devices to remove the slop from the hitch.


So glad I researched carriers and found this one. Meets my needs exactly. Best features for me by far is its simplicity in construction, obvious strength/rigidity, with very high quality welds throught. Zero screws/bolts to rattle loose or catch on things. Buying on line can leads to some small 'dissapointments' however I am over the moon with this purchase.

Helen C.


YR LATER - Still 110 happy. rigid solid. Zero issues. Still smile when driving and see all other cheap wobbly carriers other have to put up with


Very sturdy yet as light weight as possible. Fit to receiver could be a tighter, has quite a bit of movement when unloaded. Will see how it rides with a load on it.


This cargo carrier is perfect for people who have to install it alone. It's very light weight and sturdy. It appears well constructed, aside from the reflectors that are bound to fall off. One reflector fell off straight out of the box due to plastic being attached to the sticky back of it, causing it to not stick. Some reflective tape will fix that very small issue for me. There is a little bit of sway to it, so I'll be buying a hitch tightener. The slats will make it much easier to clean, and it looks nice on my 2018 Outback. There is a lack of attachment points for tie down, other than the wide slats. If you're using rope instead of bungees, this shouldn't be an issue. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality and weight of this carrier.


Delivered as ordered

Excellent product, gets used nearly ever weekend. Hauls coolers, wild game with no problem.


Jesse M was very good to deal with very knowledgeable on the product I ordered and great at following up, the only issue I had was when it was delivered it had a large hole in the box but thankfully there was no damage to my cargo carrier



We first used this on a trip in 2022. It was GREAT! It held many things that would not fit in our cargo space within our van. We have an upcoming trip in a few weeks and will use it again then! So happy we invested in this!


Great cargo rack. First one was dented on arrival. etrailer sent a new one out next day. Great Customer Service.


As usual, etrailer is fantastic. Order was received earlier than scheduled. Only issue is the plug for the hitch mount was missing. Called up and had a replacement sent right away. Customer service is the best. I have had nothing but success ordering through etrailer over the years.


I am giving a 5 star with the fact that the product was what I expected it to be, well description and pictures on line. Easy assembling took 20 minutes with only 4 bolts. Have not yet attached to hitch with any load so in hopes that works well. Seems sturdy with the attachable hitch with expanded stress frame. Only issue is parts bag was thin and open on one end with several parts spilled out into box. Box not to bad but could have lost a part. Needless to say I was a little gitty for a moment until I found the last of all parts still in box. After the find of all parts I give a five star for this product being what I expected. Just need to have parts in thicker bag and secured to the carrier would be a big plus. Otherwise you could end up with not all parts that would make a bad day.

  • Dimensions of Curt Cargo Carrier 18113

It is also 6-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier. The cargo carrier basket measures 49 inches x 22-1/2 inches and is 4 inches tall. The carrier does come with a hitch pin and is...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier for a 2009 Honda CR-V
    For your 2009 Honda CR-V, I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75547 because it's a Class-III rated hitch and it's easy to install. The cargo carrier I recommend is the Curt aluminum carrier # C18113 because it weighs only 29 pounds and has raised side rails to help keep cargo secure. Before you load anything on your future cargo carrier, double-check your owners manual for the maximum tongue weight. Based on my research though, it is 150 pounds. As a result of a 150 pound tongue...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV that Allows Rear Door to Open
    I have a solution for you, but if you check out the demo video I attached for the # 63153 you will see that the railing of the carrier does interfere with the door opening all the way on a very similar Honda CR-V as yours. Instead the part # C18113 should allow your rear door to open. It has a straight shank (no rise) and low walls (5 inches). I've attached a video review of this carrier as well.

  • Bumper Clearance Needed for Curt Cargo Carrier C18113 on Jeep Wrangler
    According to Curt on the # C18113 the center hitch pin hole to closest part of carrier distance is indeed 6-1/2 inches. The sides of the carrier are 4 inches tall, and the basket sits directly atop the shank which means that height above the top of the shank is exactly 4 inches. If you find that this will not be enough clearance for you, Curt makes a more traditionally-styled carrier, part # C18151. This rack is capable of folding up against the rear of the vehicle when not in use. When...

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for Use on Front Hitch # C31023 on GMC Sierra 2500HD
    Thank you for your recent purchase of Curt front-mount hitch receiver # C31023 for your Sierra 2500HD.

Please click on the link provided to see all fixed cargo carriers in this capacity range.

  • Is Max Tongue Weight Reduced if Cargo Carrier Has Longer Shank
    You are definitely on the right track with your research and findings. If your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon is listed for 200 lbs TW then even if you use a trailer hitch with a higher TW capacity, like the Draw-Tite # 76227 with a 600 lb TW, you are limited by the least rated component which would be your Outback Wagon at 200 lbs TW. To determine how much cargo you can carry in a carrier like part # C18113 you need to subtract the weight of the carrier itself. For this example the carrier...

Then for a hitch lock with an anti-rattle device that will hold the carrier solid the # 63232 would be a great option.
