Video Transcript for Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the CARPOD Walled Folding Cargo Carrier with Lid and Bag, part number M2205-01-02. The CARPOD Hitch Mount and Cargo Carrier is the ideal solution for keeping your cargo secured, contained, and protected on the back of your vehicle. It features a durable polyester bag which is going to provide privacy and protection from the elements for our cargo. It measures 46-inches long by 22-inches wide by 22-inches tall. It has straps to help keep it from shifting inside the cargo carrier as well as a flap to further protect the zipper from the elements. It comes with a locking lid so we can further secure our cargo, so we can ensure that it'll be here when we get back. It features 3 locking points so we can secure it with a padlock or we can use our included strap to hold down the lid.

As you could see, with that tight it's not coming up. When not in use, the whole CARPOD just folds flat. Simply pull the pins, bring the sidewalls in first, then once everything's folded down, we can grab our included strap and secure it. What that strap's going to do is it's going to help keep it from moving around once we have it folded up against our vehicle. Put our pin and clip in place, and then as you could see, the strap is going to keep it nice and secure while we're driving down the road. Here between our CARPOD and our vehicle, we've got our shank which is giving us a 5-inch rise for additional ground clearance.

From the center of the hitch pinhole to the beginning of the rise is 6-inches. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outer most point of the carrier is about 14-inches. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the rear of the carrier is roughly 38-inches. With it folded up, from the center of the hitch pinhole to the carrier is about 7 and a half inches. To the rear, from the center of the hitch pinhole, it's about 13 and a half inches. Here are the rear of the cargo carrier, we've got 2 reflectors on each corner.

This is to ensure better visibility for our other drivers. The whole CARPOD Cargo Carrier is made out of a galvanized steel construction. It measures 48 and 3/4 long by 24 inches wide by 22 inches tall. It has a nice 450 pound weight capacity with a nice black powder coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. Now that we've gone over some of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. We've got it in the fold position here, let's go ahead and first take our shank and load it into the 2-inch by 2-inch receiver and then we'll line up our pinholes.

Then once we get our pinholes lined up, we'll go ahead and take a pin and clip and put that through. This carrier doesn't come with a pin and clip, but you can find it on our website at etrailer.com, part number PC3. Put the clip in place on the other side and then we've got it. Now we can lower it down in the platform position, so what I'm going to do is to come down here to this clip, going to remove that, remove this clip, and then pull out the pin. That's going to allow it to fold down, then we could replace that pin and clip, locking it in place. Now with it in this position, this would be a good time to get into your rear hatch to remove any cargo, gear, groceries. Anything you might have with you on your trip, so that's before you fold up your independent walls, that is. Then we can undo our strap that's keeping the walls secure, get this done and then we can fold them out. Then we can start by opening up the rear wall here and then the front, and we can let go of the front because it's got a little stopper there to keep it from swinging back into the vehicle. We'll raise up a side wall here, we'll line up our pinholes, take our pin with the d tent 00:04:26 in the end and slip that in place. We're just going to repeat that step on the other 3 sides. Now let me come on the other side where I can show you a closer look. Right, and then we've got it. Now let's grab our bag. Now for loading our bag up in the CARPOD, I've got it filled up with some paper for today's demonstration, that way you can get a good idea of what it looks like and how it fills out. For loading it up in the CARPOD, you can lower 1 of the walls, whatever works best for your application. You just want to make sure and probably have it unloaded before you load up any of your cargo, that way the bag is nice and lightweight. Let me lower the front wall here and just kind of put it into place, then we could just close that back up. Now the bag has 4 secure points with the straps here, so we can strap it to the inside of our CARPOD. You'll just bring that around, and tie that up. Then we can just repeat that same step on the other 3 corners. Again, with all the straps in place, it's just going to make sure that our bag stays secure inside the CARPOD. Now for our lid, we've got the flanges on the back side to connect around the top of our CARPOD. In the front, we've got the lock down points, we've got 1 here, here, and there, so 3 in the front. The way you put this in is you'll take the flange end, slip it into the CARPOD on the back like that, lower it down, make sure the locking points go around the bar like so on all 3 sides. Then we can put a lock in place to add some security. The CARPOD Cargo Carrier doesn't include locks to lock it down, so you will need to provide your own. The lock we're using today is pat number AT89019, and this locking kit actually comes with 2 locks, so we can lock down our multiple locking points on our CARPOD. It's pretty simple, you just slide your padlock through, bring it back, so the hole's there, and lock it in place. As you can see, the lid's not coming loose. Now with our CARPOD secured, let's go ahead and take it on our test course and she how it performs. Here on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side-to-side action, such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps, this is going to show a twisting action such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then finally onto our solid speed bumps, this is going to show an up and down action such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the CARPOD Walled Folding Cargo Carrier with Lid and Bag. Part number M2205-01-02.

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!! 528446

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. 208816

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.

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. 405772

I am very happy with this cargo carrier. A couple years ago I bought the fixed non folding no side carrier and that has been bullet proof as well! I ended up buying small master locks to secure the cargo inside the carrier while the truck is unattended. I also purchased the hitch stabilizer for heavier loads. I’m very happy with this product and it is very helpful that it folds up so easily and is out of the way while still on the truck. Thanks 459811

We purchased the Carpod a year because we did not have enough room in our SUV for all our stuff. We loaded the Carpod with vacuum bags and it was amazing how well they fit. Once you suck the air out of the bags, you can literally fill the Carpod with a tons of items. Once we got to our destination we were able to breakdown the Carpod and store it in the basement. Very easy to use and assemble. Everything in the Carpod is safe and waterproof. 512369

I just got the cargo carrier yesterday and installed it last night. Haven't taken it out on the road yet, but so far it looks and feels great and the anti-rattle locking pin keeps it nice and snug on my Hyundai Santa Fe. One comment. The description says that the distance from the center pin to the rise is 2.5". Not true on my carrier. It's 6", making the extender I bought completely unnecessary. 249776

We purchased the 24X48X3/4 Carpod with the Lid, Bag and Rise Shank, along with the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver. The items shipped amazingly fast (and FREE!), arrived in three days and we couldn't be more satisfied with the product itself or the quality of the craftsmanship! This will allow us to pack EVEN MORE when we travel which makes my wife very happy. 222636

Only complaint is the bag has a bunch of small holes in it now which caused it to leak and a lot of our stuff get wet. We drove our car 2700+ miles from Atlanta, GA to the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. The carrier itself is great! But again, only complaint is the included bag and wish it was more durable. 384916

Ask the Experts about this Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier
Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for a 2017 GMC Yukon
  • There's two that really stand out as great options for a bigger SUV, the CarPod, part # M2205-01-02 and the Rola Dart, part # 59550. Both of these are larger, folding carriers that will work with your vehicle's larger hitch. The CarPod is a walled, lockable carrier that includes a weather-resistant bag. This carrier can be used with or without the bag for a wide range of applications, and can be easily locked with a 3/8 inch diameter padlock like part # AT89019. The rack also can have...

  • Recommended Hitch Pin for the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02
  • The Carpod Walled and Folding Cargo Carrier does not come with a hitch pin clip. The basic hitch pin clips that you will need is part # PC3. For added security and to help deter theft you can use the Let's Go Areo Anti-Rattle Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232. If you were wanting to add some security to your cargo carrier, I recommend using the Master Lock Padlock # ML312D for when the top is closed.

  • Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2-Inch Hitch on Infiniti QX56 (QX80)
  • The Infiniti QX56 underwent a re-naming process with the 2014 model year at which time it became known as the QX80, however cargo carrier fits for the two versions are the same since only 2-inch Class III hitches are offered for the vehicle. The 2-inch Class III hitches for your QX56 share a substantial 600-lb tongue weight capacity. This means that you can use a high-capacity cargo carrier and use every bit of its capacity for your luggage. Even if you don't need a 500-lb-rated basket...

  • Distance from Center of Hitch Pin to Nearest Upright Portion of the Carpod Carrier When Folded
  • I went out into our warehouse and measured a Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier # M2205 when it is folded up and found that it measures 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin out to the nearest portion of the carrier. Check out the picture I attached that shows this measurement.

  • What Size Is Hinge Pin On Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier M2205-01-02
  • The hinge pin you are talking about on the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier, part # M2205-01-02 is a 5/8-inch diameter pin. I called my contact at Carpod and they siad it is really solid and an anti-rattle pin is really not needed. The hitch pin and clip to use on the trailer hitch receiver is not included. For a standard pin and clip you can use part # PC3 and for a locking anti-rattle hitch pin you can use part # 63232.

  • Adding a License Plate Bracket to Carpod Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • Unfortunately, we do not have a license plate bracket specifically designed to be used with the Carpod Carrier # M2205-01-02 but we have a number of trailer license plate brackets that could possibly be used. I've linked our selection for you. One example that is quite versatile is # CR79150 which has a number of openings that could be used to mount it to the carrier. Using zip ties or something similar would probably work just fine.

  • Enclosed Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2009 Honda Pilot
  • The release mechanism is actually not in the covered portion of the handle that is under the skid plate. The mechanism is actually in the portion that gets bolted to the shank that gets inserted into the hitch of the vehicle. The mechanism would be easy to clean and would be difficult to get dirty enough that it would stop releasing, but in that situation you could easily hose out the mechanism and get it working again. The most common cargo bag that gets used with this cargo carrier...

  • 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...

  • Using a Generator on a GearDeck 17
  • The Gear Deck 17, part # H00604 is able to carry a generator, however, it is not recommended to run the generator with the fully removable lid installed. Our recommended use is to completely remove the lid and unpack the carrier and then use the telescoping base to slide the generator away from your vehicle prior to use. If your generator does have exhaust that points downward, I recommend removing the generator from the carrier prior to use. If you are looking to use the generator...

  • 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...

  • Using Car Pod Cargo Carrier on Front Mounted Hitch of 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • It would initially seem that a front mounted cargo carrier is a good idea, but it's not a practice I recommend for three pretty good reasons. 1) Having the carrier at the front restricts airflow into the radiator, which could cause the engine to overheat. Which would be bad. 2) The carrier can interfere with the truck's headlights. Which would also be bad. 3) The carrier can interfere with the driver's vision of the road, leading to an unsafe situation. Which could be really bad. I'd...

  • Will the Carpod Enclosed Cargo Carrier Clear the Bumper on a 2012 GMC Acadia
  • The shank on the Carpod, # M2205-01-02 would most likely interfere with the bumper on your Acadia. It does not come out far enough before reaching the portion of the shank that rises. I recommend the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110. It has a straight shank that measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. You also get the benefit of an enclosed carrier rather than the cage type of the Carpod. Plus, the Rola carrier can also be used...

  • Will Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier Fit 2013 Ford Flex
  • Since the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier, part # M2205-01-02 is designed for 2-inch trailer hitches that is the first thing you will need to make sure you have. I have attached a link to the hitches we offer if you need to install one. The # M2205-01-02 measures 48-3/4 inches long x 24 inches wide x 22 inches tall and has 13.1/4 cu ft of storage with a weight capacity of 450-lbs. The carrier weighs 54 lbs. You will want to check the weight capacity of your Flex. When calculating...

  • How to Launch a Boat Using the Carpod Cargo Carrier
  • What is the connection point on the end of your boat dolly? If it is a 2" shank then you can use the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter part # D-192 but if it is a coupler for a hitch ball then you can use the MaxxTow Ball Mount with Accessory Receiver part # MT70066. Please keep in mind that the Curt adapter will reduce your hitch's overall capacity by 50% but this should not be an issue if you are only using it to back the boat dolly down the ramp. Unfortunately, they do not make...

  • Cargo Carriers for Hunting with a 2017 Toyota Sequoia
  • If you have a factory tow package, then you'll need to refer to your Owner's Manual for the exact specifications of your hitch in terms of its tongue weight. The hitch receiver is a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver though, so you'll likely have a Class II or Class III like you said. If you don't have a factory tow package, I recommend picking up the DrawTite Class III, part # 75649. This will give you a higher than average tow capability and let you use a wider range of carriers. Tongue...
