Video Transcript for Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Carpod 23 x 47 walled cargo carrier. It's been designed for use in 2 inch hitches. It's part number is M2200. This cargo carrier is designed with nice, heavy weight steel construction. It's got a black powder coat finish. This thick tall sides are going to help hold our gear in place, and with the main thick shank it's going to give us some extra strength and support.

We can tote up to 450 pounds with our carrier. As you can see we've got the nice tall walls that come up all the way around our carrier. They've got the mesh front on them. This is going to help hold all of our cargo in place as we go down the road. These are designed to fold down easily for storage. You simply go around and start pulling our pins that are located one at each of the 4 corners.

We'll fold down our side doors first. Then our front and then our rear. As you can see this is going to make it very handy for storing in the garage. This also is going to allow us access into our rear cargo area. Now a feature as soon as the door closes which I'll show you that I really like is the concern I had since this is actually my vehicle is that when we open the front door I was worried that it was going to extend too far and hit the back of the suburban, but there's actually a little tab here that as you can see prevents that from happening, so it's really a nice feature that they've got built right in. Cargo carriers like this really allow you to get any of the things inside of your car out that might be able to free up some room for some extra passengers or pets.

As you can see it's got the expanded steel floor in it. When we get our muddy, dirty items that we don't want getting all over the interior of our car, we can just place them right here, allow those to drip dry, allow the dirt and stuff to fall off of them, and all we have to do is hose it down. As you can see, nothing's really going to rest on top of this and cause excessive corrosion. The powder coat finish, of course, is really going to help with that corrosion resistance as well. As you can see, putting it back up is as easy as just unfolding in, and we just slide our 4 pins back in.

Again we got 1 of those at each corner. That really firms it up for us. Now that we've gone over some of the key features of the cargo carrier, we'll show you how to install it into your vehicle. Basically we just slide the shank of the carrier right into the receiver tube of our hitch. We need it to go in far enough to where we line up our hitch pin hole and the hole that's in the shank of the carrier. We'll then take a standard 5/8 pin and slide it through. The pin and clip are sold separately. We sell the combo on our website. The part number on it is PC3. We just slide our pin through and then we secure it here on the other side using our clip. Just like that the carrier's installed onto the vehicle. Now we're going to load it up with some gear. Let's just see how that works. Now we'll just get our gear loaded up here. See those walled sides are really nice about containment, and it's really snug and really secure. With our gear in place there we can simply pull her back up, slide our pins in. As you can see, they're also going to supply you with a strap. The strap's made to fit around the outside rails and hold your gear in place. I don't think it's quite necessary with the load that we've got today. I don't think we have to be worried about it flying out, but if you do need it, they do send you a nice strap to come along with it. Now we're going to be ready to take you out on our test course and let you see what it looks like in action. We'll start by going through the slalom, so you can see the side to side action of the rack as if you're cornering or doing evasive maneuvering. As we go around the corner into our alternating speed bumps, you'll see that torquing maybe if you're hitting a speed bump or a pot hole or a curb, something along those lines. Then we get into the solid speed bumps. You'll be able to see that up and down action like if you we're going into a parking lot or in a driveway, something along those lines. Now you'll be able to customize your Carpod however you like it. We have a lockable lid available for it. That part number is M2201. We also have a weather resistant cargo bag available that has 13-3/4 cubic foot capacity. Its part number is M2202. If you've already decided you'll be going with the lid or the bag or any combination, we do have the Carpod and lid available as part number M2200-2201. We also have the Carpod, the lid, and the bag available at a combo, part number M2200-01-02. That will complete today's look at the 23 x 47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier designed for 2 inch hitches offering the 450 pound weight capacity, Part number M2200. .

Box to completed install: 14 minutes. We tavel a lot and the extra space will be great. Tailgate on the 2010 BMW XDrive 35D clears no problem. Hitch came from etrailer done at a previous install. 484522

Iam rating it as such because I have only tested it without any cargo on a 30 min drive.It was ok considering the help of the anti-rattle and anti-tilt that I also used.The real test really will be putting some cargo in it.I noticed that there was a lock nut or washer missing at the base which made one of the bolts loose;likewise there was only place to put a lock( do not know why the locks came in pairs?)Overall,I think this will work for me.As for the anti-tilt that I purchased, I noticed that the 2 bolts on the side really are only barely touching the bar,I think the holes were not properly placed ,so when you tighten them, they will only tighten the edge of the bar.The shipping was super fast! It felt like it just came a few miles from my house,however I noticed that the packaging was messed up and torn so it was just taped up;it really looked like it was an old stock from the warehouse. The customer service was awesome and will probably order from this site again.Thanks! 45614

We have been very happy with this product. It carried our 20 gal propane tank, along with other camping gear, on a 6000 mile round trip to Michigan this summer in our Honda Pilot. Our favorite use is on the back of our motor home. I can put fish, bait and other stinky things outside, much to my wife's relief! The only minor problem we have had was the lid not fitting exactly. But we have been able to work that out. 287140

I called up and spoke with Nicole, she told me it was very important to get the right size of the tail gate. I called back the next day to order the cargo carrier. Nicole Suggested the package with the water-proof bag and locking top. It was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to use the cargo carrier before I wrote this review. Last week I took my family on a trip and the cargo carrier worked perfectly, it gave us all the extra room in the car we needed. I have already told someone else about etrailer and great they were. Thank you very much. Dave D. Boston, MA. 45396

Just what I need to carry those two extra suitcases and couple of bags. Easy for one person to assemble and install. I would recommend this for anyone with a ford Escape if traveling with 3 or 4 people. 160124

Works out great- easy setup and stores more than I thought it would. 548338

I really wanted to love this, but it didn't fit my car properly and it caused us a real headache on our road trip. The unit road too low to the ground and scraped the floor when we went over bumps and dips. Much worse was that, it sat right in front of the exhaust pipe, which we didn't realize until halfway through our trip, when a bottle of detergent leaked, turned corrosive from the heat, and literally melted through the bag and damaged much of the items we had in the crate. We had to throw out the bag and most of our things. I'm hoping buying an extender to lift it up higher away from the floor and exhaust will work, but I'm hesitant to spend any more money, since this was supposed to have everything it needed for my type of car. I'm also bummed that the bag was ruined, so now anything we try to store will be exposed to the elements. 529950


As with any hitch mounted accessory, youll want to make sure theres at least 12 inches between the exhaust and any hitch mounted accessory. An extender/rise adapter is a good solution, but an extender/adapter will move the load of the carrier and whats carried upon it further away from the hitch which will lower the hitch tongue weight capacity maximum amount of weight that can be safely carried on the hitch by half. Having an extra component installed between the hitch and carrier can also allow more movement of the hitch accessory.

We love our Carpod with the waterproof bag. Worked excellent on our trip to the beach. It fit great on our Volvo XC90!!!! It held all our beach chairs, toys, and so much more. Really recommend the carpod if you need extra room like us. It holds a lot and it is easy to stick on the car. No problems here. Just add locks and your good!!! 523314


Masterlock padlocks part #141T will lock the carpod to deter theft.

Yes, I like the carrier. I would buy it again. the only little problem I had was around the corners it had some water seepage. I sprayed it good with some waterproof sealer it worked good after that. 275147

We used it on two trips since purchasing it. On both trips is worked flawlessly. This was the best investment we have made for this type item. We looked at numerous units before choosing this one, but none came close to providing what this unit does (for the price). Thanks for making our vacations less stressful. The Ragas Family 247843

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?

  • 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...

  • Difference Between the Carpod part numbers M2205-01-02 and M2200-01-02
  • The difference between the two Carpods that you referenced is that the part # M2205-01-02 can fold up and the # M2200-01-02 does not fold. The only color that the # M2202 comes in is black. You should note that this bag is included with both carriers mentioned. The bag would take the shape of the cargo installed in it for the most part. If you filled out the bag it would not sag at all.

  • How do the Sides and Top Hold Together on the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation to Carry a Load of 415 lbs on Rough Roads
  • If you are planning on carrying a load of 415 lbs on a cargo carrier on rough roads, then you will want a cargo carrier that is rated significantly higher than your load weight. The downward force of the load after a bump could exceed the 450 lb weight capacity of the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02, and cause damage. I would recommend the Rola Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59502. This cargo carrier has a weight capacity of 600 lbs and is our highest rated hitch mounted cargo carrier...

  • Cargo Bag Recommendation that Can Be Locked to a Cargo Carrier

For a cargo carrier with a cargo bag that can be locked to the cargo carrier I think you would be best served by checking out the 24x48-3/4 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier w/ Lockable Lid and Cargo Bag # M2200-01-02. This comes with a cargo bag similar to the Rola Bag # 59102 that you referenced except it can very effectively be locked to a cargo carrier by the walls and lid. For padlocks you would want the Master Lock Solid Body Padlocks part # 141T. And...

  • Will Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier Fit 2011 Buick Enclave
  • I have a solution for you, but the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-01-02 does not extend far enough out from the trailer hitch to fit well on your 2011 Buick Enclave. The trailer hitches we've installed on the Enclave required 5 inches of distance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the closest part of the carrier in order to clear the bumper. The # M2200-01-02 offers only 4 inches, meaning it would not work on your vehicle. Instead, the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier...

  • Fit of Carpod # M2200-01-02 Cargo Carrier on 2012 Acura MDX
  • To determine if the Carpod # M2200-01-02 Cargo Carrier will fit in your 2012 Acura MDX, you'll need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole and the receiver and the rear-most portion of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 4 inches, the Carpod carrier would work great. When we installed hitches on a 2012 MDX, we found that the Curt # 13354 had 3-1/2 inches of clearance, while the Draw-Tite # 75614 had 3-3/4 inches of clearance. Personally, I'd like to see at least...

  • Is the bag in the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02 Water Proof
  • The bag that is inside the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02, is weather-resistant but is not considered water proof. For something to be considered water proof it has to be submerged under water for a certain period of time and the inside and contents must stay dry. For general rainy conditions the bag will do well to help keep items inside dry but we still recommend placing items that cannot get wet in plastic bags.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation on a Carpod Walled Carrier to be Used With a 2008 Buick Enclave
  • For your 2008 Buick Enclave, I like the Carpod Walled Carriers that include the polyester weather-resistant storage bag like # M2205-01-02 and # M2200-01-02. The storage bag will give the ability to store your items in privacy while keeping them out of the weather elements. Of these two Carpod carriers, I recommend # M2200-01-02, because of the added security of a lockable lid. This added feature will enhance the security of your cargo as you travel. These two carries have a 450 lbs...

If you are looking for a hitch lock, I would recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 7683. I have included a video of the hitch lock for you to check out. Both locks are sold separately from the cargo carrier. You will need a 2 inch receiver to carry this cargo carrier on your 1999 GMC Safari. If you do not have a receiver, I recommend the...

  • Can Carpod Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Used at the Front of a 2015 Ford F-250
  • On the Carpod cargo carrier # M2200-01-02 it measures 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. This means that on your 2015 Ford F-250 the measurement from the center of the front mount hitch pin hole out to clear the front of the truck must be less than 4 inches. If it is then you can use the carrier. However please note that carrying something in the front of the vehicle will reduce driver visibility, can potentially block the front lights,...

I confirmed this with my contact at Carpod. This is a really nice, hitch-mounted cargo carrier that includes a lockable lid and a weather-resistant bag. When attached, the carrier sidewalls can also fold down for easy storage and access to the rear of your vehicle, or outward for easy loading and unloading....

  • Determining Bumper Clearance on 2012 Infiniti QX56 for Carpod Cargo Carrier
  • Some of the Carpod cargo carriers do sit very close to the end of the hitch receiver. To be sure that the cargo carrier will clear your 2012 Infiniti QX56's bumper, you will want to take a quick measurement on your vehicle. Using a yard stick or dowel rod held at the rear-most point of the bumper, you will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the trailer hitch receiver to the dowel rod. This will let you know how many inches are needed for the carrier to clear the back...

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2 inch Trailer Hitch
  • We have a somewhat similar solution that allows you to carry a bike rack and a cargo carrier at the same time, but the rear of the Carpod Walled Carrier part # M2200-01-02 does not have a hitch opening for a rack to install. Instead you'd want the Hollywood Racks Bike Rack/Cargo Carrier part # HR1400-85-FB which allows you to carry up to 2 bikes and an open cargo carrier. You can also run either rack independently as well.

To ensure that this cargo carrier will be compatible with the trailer hitch on your 2014 Honda Odyssey, I recommend taking a measurement from the hitch pin hole on the hitch to the outermost edge of the rear bumper. This particular cargo carrier has a rather short distance of 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. This...

  • Can Hitch Extender Be Used On 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With Spare Tire For Cargo Carrier
