I bought this rack to carry my generator when I'm boondocking with my travel trailer. It also carries my 5-gallon gas can and my 5-gallon diesel can. I like that it can be locked completely closed - it keeps my generator from wandering off unattended.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


After purchasing a 2018 Honda CR-V Touring, my honey-to-do-task of having to bring trash to the dump every week must be done. I am not a big fan of placing trash inside my new car, despite having a rubber liner. So I purchased the Curt 2 inch receiver hitch and had it installed by my local mechanic. I did not want to have to hook up my small utility trailer to go to the dump since I have to go to work and park in a parking garage after making my trash drop off. I came across this Carpod M2205 walled carrier. I am thrilled with this and like the way it folds up when not in use. There was a simple assembly process to go through after it was received (quick shipping by the way). It is a little heavy placing into the hitch receiver, but note it is easier to place it into the hitch when folded up. I wrapped a piece of duct tape around the exact place of the insertion bar to line up the holes of the hitch pin. Its carrying capacity is well within what I need, and I am quite impressed. There is not much movement of the carrier while driving except for big bumps or potholes. This is an excellent alternative to carrying household garbage inside my new car. The walls are held in place with metal pins and a strap, that is a little short and could be a little bit longer. That would be my only complaint about using this car carrier. Otherwise, I highly recommend this for anyone who needs to carry items outside or to need more space.

Still doing great and loving this product.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


I purchased this for a 800-mile round trip vacation to Mammoth Lakes. It greatly extended the amount of luggage and gear we could bring with us, as we head 4 adults and a dog in the car. I could hardly tell the cargo carrier was back there while driving, and it didn't impact my gas mileage at all. I assembled and installed this myself, and it was super easy (although would be easier with a second set of hands.) I also purchased a stretchy net cargo cover, which allowed us to pack above the the actual height of the carrier itself. I attached my license plate to the cargo carrier work zip ties, although I will need to get a bracket with lights for the future of doing nighttime driving. I have no regrets on this purchase and highly recommend!

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


We really like our hitch carrier; have not used it with the "liner" but with just the cage. Great for hauling firewood, small grill, charcoal, etc. that we wouldn't want to take in our motor-home. When parked for camping just throw a tarp over the top of it to keep things dry. Also easily lockable.


Comments
We still like it a lot, use it every time we go out with our RV

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


I LOVE MY CARPOD!! We (my 3 kids and parents) took my Pilot to a 3 week road trip across 8 states, crossed the border to Canada including two provinces, and drove 4900 miles! This product held 5 duffel bags, 1 luggage, and other things we could stuff in there!! It rained the WHOLE state of Montana and only one side of inside the bag was wet. I think it was because I didn’t fold the flap down properly so some moisture seeped through the zipper and the sides of my girls’ duffel bags got wet. Tammy, the sales rep, was so helpful! I had many questions and she took time finding out the answers to my questions and helped me decide which product was best for me. She also suggested the anti rattle device, which I highly recommend, since I drove and felt like there was nothing behind me. It was so quiet!! It also made a prefect table for our roadside lunch breaks! I highly reccomned this product!!

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.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


I like having the extra space. I don’t like the pin system, i always have one that is too hard to manipulate. I have the top, and i wish it had a different way to attach. It has to come off to get in the box. I am surprised at the rusted areas, but overall I love the carrier

I've owned the cargo carrier for 1 year now. I put it on the back of my Subaru Forester and I haven't taken it off yet. It's so useful for so many things, vacations, delivering big packages and taking items to the landfill it was a good purchase for me

The cargo carrier came exactly as billed. It was simple to put together and was perfiect for my first two dump runs.

I have a 2014 DODGE DURANGO RT. DOES THIS TILT OR SWING AWAY IF IT IS FULLY LOADED SO YOU CAN ACCESS THE TRUNK AND THE DOOR CAN OPEN AND CLOSE????
-- comment by: David - 02/23/2014

The Carpod does not have a tilt or swing function. To access your cargo area, you will either need to remove the whole carrier or at least the cage from the base.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


I've driven just over 7000 mile with my car pod and could not be happier. For the price it's completely worth it and has made my trip a lot easier. I'm certainly not the most mechanically inclined person and was able to put it together and install it myself with little effort. Some of the engineering could use improvements but for the cost I have no complaints.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


I worked with Karen at etrailer.com. She was excellent in helping me. I was looking for a cargo hitch (CarPod) and they were out of the one I wanted. Karen helped me get the other model and get it to me in time for my trip. The CarPod was easy to put together and looks perfect for what we need it for. The only drawback: I ordered the recommended padlocks to secure the top of the CarPod container. The padlocks need to have a deeper loop than the ones sent with the product. I went to target to get the same brand with a deeper loop. The top has 3 spots to place your locks and Target had a 3 pack of Masterlock brand that was perfect.


Comments
We took it on a trip to Kansas City. Over 1,800 miles round trip. It worked out great for us. We got in some downpours. A little moisture got in, but not too bad. We bought an additional piece to prevent rocking on bumps. Together, I recommend this product. Works great for what we need.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


Happy to have this cargo container when necessary but a few continuous improvement things would be suggested - the cargo bag should be waterproof, if you have the top when collapsing it should be easier to integrate, I find for some of our uses the size is just a few inches too small on each size so consider some alternate sizes.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


Paired with the Anti Rattle Hitch Receiver we have made four road trips with this Carpod. Worked perfectly with no issues. Great workmanship and has been durable so far. Given that we have it mounted on a Toyota Sienna, we have to collapse the Carpod before we can open the rear hatch. I would now pay extra for a version that could swing out and out of the way so that you could open the hatch while the Carpod is fully loaded.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


We ordered the M2205-01 Carpod carrier with lid for our 2013 Lexus RX350 last year for a 1000+ mile road trip and it hasn't disappointed. It's a sturdy, well constructed piece of equipment that added much needed storage for our journey. We also ordered the weather RESISTANT (NOT waterproof) insert for our gear. It too worked well. Locks do not come with the Carpod, but are added with no problem. An additional plus for this particular Carpod is that it can be folded once unpacked to disassemble later. Once disassembled, it stores nicely in a corner of your garage. We haven't second guessed our purchase at all. It's a perfect tool for giving us more storage without making things complicated. Aaaand, what made this purchase even better was the EXCELLENT customer service we received from etrailer.com.

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


The Carpod is exactly what we need to expand our hauling capacity for luggage, beach chairs, ice chests, etc... The main reason I bought it was because of the high side panels. I also like the features of being able to (1) lock the top; (2) put things in the bag as needed, especially during rain; and (3) the rise shank/fold up feature when not in use but still attached to the Highlander. I have another carrier (for several years) of similar size, but the "sides" are only about 6 inches high, meaning that everything on that one needs bungee cords or rope to secure. This Carpod is much more useful. Good product and design, at a fair price, and a most helpful staff.

Thank you. Great product!

Review from a similar Walled Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier


LOVE this rack. It arrived within a week of ordering, came without any damage, as the packaging was quite good. Very little assemble, and easy to do with included parts. Really like the fact that the front and/or each side can come down for easy loading. And the size is perfect for putting on a motorhome and still having access to the ladder. In addition to this rack being great, the customer service from the people at etrailer.com was exceptional, something not always found now a days.


Comments
Still very happy with the rack, it holds panels that are use to set up an enclosed area when we go to dog shows, works as well as the day it arrived!

  • Differences Between Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-2201 and # M2205-2201
    There are a couple of primary differences between the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-2201 and the upgraded # M2205-2201. The first difference is that the Carpod # M2205-2201 features a hinged shank that allows you to fold up the carrier against the vehicle when it's not in use (see attached image). The # M2200-2201 has a fixed shank that cannot be moved. Another improvement on the # M2205-2201 is that it has an angled shank that provides 5-1/2 inches of additional ground clearance. Other...

    With J-pin style hitch stabilizers like the part # 63201 they are designed to go through the hitch and shank with the larger hole and then the j portion comes around and locks into the smaller hole. It almost sounds like you are trying fit the pin lock through the smaller hole instead which wouldn't be possible. See picture I attached plus review video.

  • Fit of Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02 on 2006 Chevy Suburban
    To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, part # M2205-01-02 will fit your Suburban, you will need to take a quick measurement. Measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. If this distance is less than about 2 inches, then the carrier will fit. If not, you will not be able to slide the shank into the receiver far enough for the hitch pin holes to align. Carpod offers # M2200-2201 that offers a bit more clearance, if your distance...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier For 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The reason you don't see any hitch-mounted cargo carriers for your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is because hitch cargo carriers are not vehicle-specific and will basically fit most any vehicle with a trailer hitch receiver.
