Video Transcript for CarPod Folding Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier. Part number M2205. This 24 by 48 inch cargo carrier has 4 walls to support your load. It can carry up to 450 pounds of weight and offers 13 cubic feet of storage. The walls are 22 inches tall, giving you plenty of room to stack your cargo. An optional locking lid is available. That part number, M2201.

You can also get a fitted storage bag with part number M2202. I've gone ahead and removed our cargo so we can get a closer look. 3 of our walls can be folded outward, allowing us easy access inside the carrier. The open mesh floor allows dirt and debris to fall through and makes clean up easy. The angled shank elevates the cargo carrier, allowing for better ground clearance at the rear. The whole thing is made out of a welded, galvanized steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. In order to gain access to our rear hatch, we can just simply fold down the walls.

We'll pull the pins and just fold one wall down at a time. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. This is going to be for 2 inch hitches only. Let's go ahead and put our shank in the receiver. We'll slide it in and then we'll line up our pin holes. That looks pretty good.

Then, we can take a pin and clip and put it through the hole. You will have to provide your own pin and clip for this carrier. If you don't have one, that's okay, you can pick one up at our website at PC3. As you can see, it's in its stowed position, here. This would be ideal for pulling in your garage overnight or pulling in a tight parking spot. To get it folded down into the platform position, we'll come down here.

We'll remove the clip, slide off this clip, here, and then just simply pull out the pin. This will allow us to fold it all the way down to the platform position. Once it's down, we can just reinsert that pin and clip. To fold out our walls, they're being held down by the included strap. We can go ahead and take that off and set that aside for now. We can just start by folding out the back, here, and then the front. We can actually let the front go, because it's got this nice little tab, here, so it doesn't end up coming in contact with the vehicle. Fold out the walls, and once they meet, we can take our included 4 pins and just slide that in. That way they stay together. Just like that. We'll repeat that same process for the other 3 sides. There we go. When we're ready to load up some cargo, it's just as simple as lowering one of the walls. It doesn't matter which one you do. We're going to lower the front one. That's going to give us just enough room to put in our cargo. We're just adding about 200 pounds of weight. Once we've got it all loaded up, we'll then take it out on our test course to see how it performs. This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side to side action, such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then, onto our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action, such as hitting curbs, pot holes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all, the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action, such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway. That's going to complete our look at the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, part number M2205.

Product delivered quickly and as described. Installation instruction text was difficult to follow, so just figured it out from the pictures and basic mechanical knowledge. Unit came with paint already worn off parts of the rack due to parts rubbing together during shipping (from China and/or from distributor), so will likely need to repaint from time to time. Would have preferred the hitch to go deeper into the receiver. 376274

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. 229349

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. 593338

Purchased this along with a cargo carrier in order to haul home items throughout several states over the past year. This item met all of my needs and continues to hold up well. Easy to put together and take apart. 704929

Product is very well made. We bought this to haul equipment to the beach on the back of our LSV and it works perfect. Size is just right and solved our problem of who was going to hold all the stuff on their lap. Delivery was on time, as expected. 680851

The customer service was excellent. The shipping was fast and reliable. The cargo carrier arrived 1 day early and was in good shape when it arrived. It was very easy to put together and I did not have to struggle with the assembly. I am very happy with the purchase. 679758

Just received and despite UPS trying to destroy the box in transit it arrived safe and sound although with a few spots with chipped paint. Assembly was easy and it seems very sturdy and well-constructed. I'll be loading with firewood, propane tank and other gear so it will be interesting to see how it performs in the real world but so far it's a great addition to our 23' RV! 666013

The cargo tray has worked out great for trips to the dump and picking up products that are to large to put in the back of our SUVs. It also holds a lot of extra trash bags and recyclables with the help of bungee cords. It is easy to put on and remove from the trailer hitch but helps to have a second person holding it up a bit while slipping the pin into the hitch. I also love how it folds up flat to the back on the vehicle when not in use. All in all, I am very satisfied with this product. 569278

This cargo carrier (w/ locking top option) is just what we needed to carry larger items with our RV. No more putting wet & dirty mats back in the RV after a good rain. The looks and quality of this carrier is first class. Good workmanship and so easy to open / close with the lock pins. We wish we had gotten this years ago! 549796

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 435301

This is a solid product. Its very sturdy and fits quite a lot of things. Love being able to turn into a box, thats probably the best feature. The only complain i have is that the instructions are hard to read, most of the install is self explainable but there is a small piece metal clip that they sent which i couldn't figure out if they sent to big or not. I ended up buying the piece at an auto shop couple $'s. Recommend this thing. 288825

by:

Awesome product, poor quality control. Product came bent where support beam needs feed through (could not have been assembled without hammering - easy enough though). Bolt clip is twice size of drilled hole in the bolt so I'm also going to need to fix/replace that and lastly sliding clips needed hammering in/out of side pieces as they barely fit. All in all I can fix it and make it into what I bought but a disappointing initial experience. 221383

This is exactly what I wanted and needed for my road trip. With 4 kids, my Honda Pilot would not be able to store what we needed for our vacation. This carrier let me bring our jogging stroller to the shore, while also fitting 2 body boards, 2 beach chairs and more! This carrier is sturdy and easy to fold/unfold. The walls are a great bonus, giving you the ability to store more and securing more easily with straps. 149047

Ill actually be using it for the 2nd time for my trip next week, so Ill post something after that. And you just reminded me that I need to buy a bike rack!

Instructions in the box shipped were a little confusing for initial setup. Assembly was pretty easy and everything lined up. Assembly took about 20 minutes. Wish it was manufactured in America as its pretty solid and well built. 147795

Great storage option for our Lexus RX 350. With our particular tow hitch (not from the dealer), you have to push the Carpod back a bit to get the rear lift gate to open. The hard part of this is you have to put it together yourself. I had to use 1 long breaker bar and a torque wrench to put the main bolt assembly together. It was super tight. Basic hand tools just weren't enough. One weird thing was the cotter pin / clip is too big for the shank that secures the Carpod in the folded up or down position. It is not really necessary to use however. 146824

The M2205 Cargo Carrier is a well built product and I plan to use it to free-up space inside our 2014 Acura MDX on vacations and long trips for the family and pets. I also bought a bungie net and carabineers to secure oversized cargo. It was easy to build and install. Tightening the A2 nut and bolt requires some effort but that was the toughest part (by no means was it hard). After I installed it I tested the MDX rear hatchback and their is plenty of clearance. Shipping was fast. The only comment about shipping was the box was damaged, but the Cargo Carrier was not. I just used it for a trip between Tampa and New Orleans and it worked perfectly. I highly recommend this hitch carrier! 135081

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Cargo Carrier With Shank Rise for 2006 Honda Odyssey
  • There are a number of cargo carriers with at least 4 inches of rise, but they do have different dimensions and weight capacities; I'll go over the options so you can find what you need in terms of not only rise, but the amount of cargo you want to carry and the size of the carrier you are looking for. The Surco # 52018F has a 4 inch shank rise and has the most weight capacity at 500 lbs and is the largest carrier among this group, measuring 60" long x 24" wide x 5-1/2" deep. Light kit...

  • What to do With Lid When Folding Up the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier
  • The lid of the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier w/ Lid # M2205-2201 will actually need to be completely removed when you are completely folding it up. You will want to put the lid elsewhere, like inside your vehicle, if you do not need to use the carrier but still have it in the hitch. This carrier is also available without the lid at part # M2205 if you wanted to just use the carrier with the Cargo Bag for Carpod Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # M2202.

  • Shank with a Rise for Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier
  • We don't carry the shank with a rise included with Carpod # M2205 but it's very likely it will work with # M2200. We do carry an adapter for folding baskets, # 52015, that might work. We've never tested it on the Carpod carriers but I've attached a picture that you can use to determine if it'll work for you.

The outside dimensions are 48-3/4 inches long x 24 inches wide x 22 inches tall, and it fits in a 2 inch receiver opening.

  • Can the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205 be Used on a Class A Motorhome
  • Cargo carriers don't really have a rating system like bike racks do when it comes to usage on a motorhome or travel trailer. Typically we recommend using a fixed carrier like part # M2200 since it doesn't have extra moving parts and will stay more still that a folding carrier like part # M2205 that you recommended will. With that being said, since you are using a motorhome and they sometimes do need to use accessories that have a rise in the shank you should be good to use the Carpod...

I have attached a demonstration video of this carrier on a 2013 Ford Edge for you to check out. The Edge in the video is the non Sport model and has the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, # 75992, installed. Keep in mind, the hitch pin and clip are sold separately from the Carpod carriers.

This hitch pin will not only keep your basket secure, but it will keep the shank of the cargo basket tight against the receiver tube with the anti-rattle device.

  • The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier part # M2205 will be a perfect match for the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13397 on your 2018 Honda CR-V. It has an extended shank with a rise so you don't have to worry about the carrier coming into contact with the back of the vehicle or the ground. It also folds up against the vehicle while not in use. In order to prevent any rattling inside the receiver, I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock part # 63232 which is also locking....

  • Available Class I-Compatible Hitch Cargo Carrier for Use on 2013 Honda Civic EX Sedan
  • The size and weight capacity of hitches made for any given vehicle will generally reflect the vehicle's own capacities. For instance, there would be no point in making/installing a hitch that has twice the weight capacity of the vehicle itself because one would still be limited to the lower vehicle capacity. Hitch classes are detailed in the linked article. In the case of your 2013 Honda Civic EX sedan only two models of light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitches are offered, the Draw-Tite...

  • Can I Open my Hatch Area on my 2015 Toyota 4Runner When the Carpod M2205 is in the Folded Position
  • When the Carpod hitch cargo carrier # M2205 is in the folded position, the measurement from the top of the receiver hitch to the top of the Carpod is 3-1/4 inches tall. It's 5-1/4 inches tall overall measuring from the bottom of the receiver hitch to the top of the Carpod. You will have some rattle noise but I don't think it's going to be extremely loud at all. Going over bumps, potholes etc. will cause some rattle but it's certainly very secure. There is an option to get the Carpod...

  • Yes, the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205 can be used with a swing-away arm, for which the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 will work perfectly. This arm is a bit lighter (just 35 pounds) than the Kuat option we have available which allows for easily install/removal. An important thing to keep in mind though when using this or any other swing-away arm is that it's going to reduce the capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. This just means that if your trailer hitch has a 350 pound...

Either of these cargo bags could be fitted with an internal structure made of PVC tubing but generally soft bags like these rely on their contents to help control their shape.

Measure the distance rearward from the hitch pin hole until the furthest rearward portion of the bumper is cleared. If this measurement is less than the 4 inch hitch pin hole to basket measurement of the Carpod Carrier, it will fit. This being said, I would not recommend using it unless your measurement was 3 inches or less, to allow an inch space between...

I have included a link to the hitch mount cargo carriers that are compatible with a Class I trailer hitch. I recommend # C18110. You could then add a cargo bag # 59102 and secure it to the carrier. With this set up I do not anticipate any problems opening the trunk on your Cruze. For a trailer...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2011 Scion tC
  • Hitch mount cargo carriers are not tested to fit to specific vehicles. Instead, they are designed to work with specific classes of trailer hitches. The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2205, that you referenced was designed to work with Class III and Class IV trailer hitches with a 2 inch receiver opening. I have some options available for you, however, I do not recommend using the Carpod carrier with your 2011 Scion tC. All of the trailer hitches available for the tC are Class I trailer...

  • Best Light Weight Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for Lawn Mower
  • I have a great solution for you to carry your lawn mower. The MaxxTow 27" x 47" Cargo Carrier with Ramp # MT70100 is the lightest weight carrier we offer that is still wide enough to carry your 26" wide lawnmower and weighs in at 52-lbs. The aluminum construction will provide protection from the elements as well as providing a much lighter weight than a steel frame. This cargo carrier also comes with a fold up ramp that measures 40" long to help with loading and unloading your mower. Since...

  • Walled Cargo Carrier to Clear Spare Tire on a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • In order to allow for space between a hitch mounted cargo carrier while folded and the factory spare tire on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend using the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76104. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame is a Class III hitch with an elongated 2" receiver tube opening. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the tire while using this hitch is 5-1/2". Then for a cargo carrier, I recommend the Carpod Walled Cargo...

  • Enclosed Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Suburban
  • As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2015 Chevy Suburban the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205 that you referenced would fit and work well for you. I would go with the # 63232 over the part # e98880 as the # 63232 also functions as an anti-rattle device as well as a hitch lock. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Fit of Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier on 2011 Honda CRV w/ Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch 87440
  • The Hidden Hitch 87440 was discontinued and replaced with the Draw-Tite # 75547 which is the same design so you will have measurement of 3 inches from the hitch pin hole to the outer bumper. The 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Folding - 450 lbs # M2205 has a distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier of 14 inches when in use and 12 inches when folded up. It will absolutely fit on your 2011 Honda CR-V with your Hidden Hitch....

  • Rooftop Cargo Carrier Options for 2013 Kia Soul
  • We can offer several different options for cargo transport on your daughter's 2013 Kia Soul. The best option will depend on how the vehicle is equipped. For instance does it have a hitch or a roof rack already installed? The cargo carrier you referenced, part # M2205 from CarPod, is a hitch-mount type carrier that will fit only a 2-inch hitch. The Soul cannot be equipped with a 2-inch hitch, only with a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch such as one of those shown on the link at right....

  • Will the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200 Fit on a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban with Class III Hitch
  • To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200, will fit on your 1998 Chevrolet Suburban we will need to know one measurement. This cargo carrier measures 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the of the carrier. On your vehicle, you will want to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch to the furthest rearward point on your bumper. If this distance is less than 4 inches, then you can use this carrier. If you have...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Cargo Carrier For 2014 Ford Escape
  • For your 2014 Ford Escape, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # 75782. This is an easy bolt on application that won't interfere with the optional Hands-Free Liftgate. The Draw-Tite # 75758 is also a good option, but not all the sensors of a Hands-Free Liftgate will work with this hitch, although the install is slightly easier. This trailer hitch receiver is compatible with the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Folding -...
