Video Transcript for Curt Folding Aluminum Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at Curt's 19x60 folding aluminum cargo carrier.Now obviously a cargo carrier's going to be able to haul gear, but what's great about it is you can take the gear that would be in your vehicle, put it here on the back, freeing up space for more passengers on your adventure.Additionally, you go out on your adventure and you've got some wet and dirty gear, you don't want to put that inside your nice interior, you can throw it right here on back and it'll drip dry along the way.What sets this cargo carrier apart from all the rest is that it's made of a rust-proof, light-weight aluminum that maintains a 500 pound carrying capacity, so you can bring all of your must-have items with you.Surrounding the perimeter of our cargo carrier, we're going to have several tie-down points. You'll have four in the front and back, and two on each side. They're going to be ideal when working with hooks, straps, or bungee cords.Now with our cargo removed, we can take a closer look at some additional features. We'll begin with the mesh floor. This is nice because if it's raining outside, all that water is going to run right off and not collect, soaking whatever you have in the back here. Additionally, it makes it really easy to clean because you can just hose it off and the dirt and grime just runs right off of it.Another nice feature is that when it's not in use, it can be folded up by removing the pin, folding it upright, and then reinserting the pin.This is useful when pulling in your garage.

You don't have to remove your cargo carrier, you can just fold it up, and the door still shuts, and also for tight parking space maneuvers, and finding a good parking spot.Additionally, pre-drilled holes found on each corner for installing a light kit or reflectors for safer driving at night.And if your cargo's stacked up so high you can't see your license plate, you can relocate it using the pre-drilled holes found here at the back.The interior dimensions of our carrier are going to measure 19 and 1/8 inch wide, 60 inches across, and 2 3/4 inches tall. The aluminum frame is about a quarter inch think.Now to give you an idea of where it's going to sit when inside the hitch of your vehicle, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point, it's going to be about 10 3/4 inches. And from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point, it's going to be about 30 1/2 inches.And when folded up into its storage position, it's going to be able 4 1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest point, and about 10 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point.It attaches to your hitch using a 5/8 inch hitch pin and clip. Now one doesn't come included with your cargo carrier, but you can pick one up here at at etrailer.com, along with many locking hitch pin options as well.And that completes our look at Curt's 19x60 folding aluminum cargo carrier.

Instructions were good product is excellent. Product arrived ahead of schedule and I was able to get it assembled shortly thereafter. Check my photos. My hitch clamp would not work with the product and I need a storage box. 665976

First off, etrailer is awesome. I placed my order over the phone so I could ask if it was possible to have it shipped to me before a certain date. Nicole took my order, ensured me it would be there, and even followed up to make sure it shipped out the same day. Received it exactly when she told me I would. First Impression: Everything arrived on time and assembly took about 30 minutes. The basket is aluminum, but the support pieces and main shank looks to be carbon steel (I think, did not feel like scratching it to be sure). These pieces are thick, so I am not too worried about corrosion. I may just have to keep the paint touched up on these parts. Assembly: Some of the instructions could be a little more clear showing what piece goes on top of the other, and I would prefer to have a toque spec. It was difficult at times to hold a piece in place and tighten the bolt/nut. Overall, it was not bad though. Some misalignment of the pin holes at the folding joint when first assembled, but pin was able to go through with a little maneuvering. It may have adjusted itself going down the road because the pin goes in an out fairly easy now. I also added a little grease in the folding joint to prevent scratches/rust to the area since I do not think it is aluminum. Appearance and Fit: The carrier look is great. Unit is lightweight and easy to handle. Good fit for my 2017 Frontier with a 2" drawtite hitch using a j-hook anti-rattle pin. Very glad I got a carrier that folds up! Once the cooler was unloaded, I did not have to take the unit off the hitch to run errands and park in parking lots. Travel: Hauled a large ice chest (~60lbs) for a 4 hour round trip this weekend without issues. Ratchet strap bends the lip of the carrier in a little to get everything very tightly tied down, but that is not an issue for me. Everything road very well and no measurable affect to the vehicle or rattling noises. This was a test run, but I am confident that I could haul more weight without issue. Pros: Lightweight, Good Look, Folding, Aluminum basket should reduce maintanence Cons: Shank and bracing appear to be painted/coated carbon steel (not aluminum), Assembly could have been easier and instructions could have been a little more more specific 619538

Great product. Exactly as advertised!!!! After reading many other product reviews I settled on Curt because. I’ve used their products in the past and know their quality is above reproach. The one thing that made this the best is the ease of putting it together. In 45 minutes I had it on the explorer and carrying garden refuse to the recycle landfill. Have not used on a long trip yet but will be going to Colorado in a couple weeks and will give it a good workout. I’m a graybeard and the aluminum frame makes it easy to handle, putting on and off . Reason we bought the extension was because its getting harder to put the roof rack on and off the explorer. Looking forward to years of using it. This is a top of the line product. 528124

I've had this carrier for over a year now and used on several long, medium, and short trips. My brother borrows it frequently as well. It's very well built and strong. The very best feature is that it's so light weight, moving it around, installing and removing is so easy. It is also very nice to have a fold-up feature when not in use, but you still want to keep it attached to the hitch. Get it! You won't regret it. 383902

Very easy to assemble but it did not fit in the upright position on my 2011 Chevy Traverse. The license plate is in the bumper and the sides of the carrier impact the bumper on either side of the license plate when folded upright. The sides of the license plate are molded plastic that protrude from the bumper to house the lights for the plate. The simple fix was to bend the sides in a bit. That solution was better than trying to figure out how to extend the carrier further from the bumper to allow for another inch of clearance. The bend was easy using vice grips as the sides are aluminum. For the price and the 2X/year that I'll use this for beach chairs or extra luggage it's fine despite the fact it was not a perfect fit. What I like best is that it folds up and that it is very lightweight. It would be easy to stow on the roof rack if parking is tight or just to get it out of the way when accessing the trunk. And it'll come in handy if I ever have to haul the mower or blower to the shop since it's low ground clearance makes for easy loading and will keep my vehicle's interior from getting dirty. It would be nice if it came with a license plate holder that could be used in both flat and upright positions. I'll drill holes in the sides to mount the plate. A notice should be included to ensure that the license plate is not blocked from view when in use. We are driving to FL again this year and our concern is that Barney Fife will hassle us for an obstructed view of the plate. Last year we used a turtle top carrier but it is so high up on an SUV its impractical for quick trips to the beach. This carrier will be great for the cooler and sandy beach chairs and stuff. I'm thinking a large mesh utility bag to help keep all the stuff contained and make securing the load easier would be a nice extra. Last, it shipped on time and the order was complete with an additional item , a hitch lock, that all arrived in perfect condition. You need a lock for this b/c it is so light it'd probably be gone if you left it unlocked in a parking lot. Ordering was very easy! Thanks E-Trailer 476202


Comments

The carrier worked great. I purchased a large nylon cargo bag that not only kept stuff clean and dry it gave added peace of mind to ensure my stuff stayed put. I found a license plate holder that I attached to the bottom so when folded up I could move my plate from the rear side of the tray to the bottom mount quickly by using wing nuts. I looped two ratchet tie down straps around the base of each rear door shock and then hooked them to the the outside corners of the tray to keep it from sagging and wobbling. The straps also gave peace of mind when hitting bumps in the road that would otherwise make me cringe thinking it would reduce the stress on the unit overall. I recommend padding if you are using a cargo bag to prevent the metal from wearing on the bag. The downside of not using the turtle roof cargo carrier is that having stuff easily accessible from the ground means you have to be more vigilant about security when stopping to eat. We did not not over night anywhere but had we I probably would have taken all my stuff off the tray and into the room which is something you might not have to do with a lockable rooftop carrier. But for day trips to the beach you cant beat the value bc it is close to the ground and keeps all the sandydirty stuff outside and or off your roof rack.

I chose this carrier due to being the lightest weight for its size and load rating. Additionally, I was looking for a dual purpose carrier to haul bulky items outside the vehicle and full sized mountain bikes. The carrier is simple to assemble, easy to install/remove, and store. As for hauling mountain bikes, I added a fork axle mount to a piece of oak. Bottom line - for less than the price of dedicated hitch bike rack with the optionality to haul firewood and fuel to the trailhead it's worked great. 373088

I bought this cargo carrier to haul my wife's wheelchair when we go on vacation. The "foldable connection bar" is not long enough to let me fold the cargo carrier up on my 2013 Subaru Crosstrek. I could have bought an aluminum carrier locally that did not fold up. 544063

On the hitch mounted accessories we offer, we always provide the clearance distance necessary to install and fold when applicable the carrier or bike rack. If you use the provided link, you can see a help article that explains how to measure in order to determine the needed clearance.

Replacing a steel rack that was stolen form our yard. So we thought of upgrading to a folding aluminum rack. Very easy to put together an feels solid. Folding feature works easily. One of the braces had a manufacturing defect. When I called etrailer they were very responsive and said they would get us a replacement part right away. The next day a complete new rack was sent fedex from Curt, including a return shipping label. We live in the middle of nowhere and it usually takes an extra day for most shipments to get to us. We will use the rack primarily on the back of an Expedition to haul diesel fuel cans. 503697

Great product once assembly is complete. Very light weight. I can easily lift the entire carrier with one arm. I'm not sure how it will hold 500lbs though because it feel so light...but Curt says it does so I will give it a try in a few weeks. The carrier wobbles just a little bit in the receiver but not enough to cause any concern or disappointment with the overall product. Two negatives though: 1. Assembly was easy but the instructions were completely crappy. If your not able to read a picture or have trouble following vague directions you may take a little longer to get this thing put together. 2. I can not fold the carrier all the way up. It hits my bumper. I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and need about 1/4 inch more clearance to get the carrier up and in the locked position. I will have to buy an extender to use this feature. As with other stuff from etrailer, it came fast. There werent any holes in the box (unlike my trailer hitch) and the product was in great shape. Good customer service and the carrier got here a day earlier than scheduled. 28155

how did it do with a lot of weight? say 400-500 pounds?

Did just fine with about 300 lbs and I imagine that up to the weight limit it will perform the same.

We chose this cargo carrier due to its ability to carry 500 lbs. and the fact that it is lightweight. We intend to put it on our camper van. I was very impressed with the speed and quality of service and follow-up provided by trailer. I would definitely purchase from them again. They have quality products at competitive prices. 171729

Still love the cargo carrier but unfortunately I was rear-ended last week and they crushed the cargo carrier! But the carrier took the brunt of the impact. We truly believe if it wasnt there, the damage would have been much worse. ??So I was going to order another when I received your message. How weird!?! Anyway, It still is great and we love it! Gonna order it now!

A great basket for the price. Consider adding reflective tape, as well as adding a hitch tightener to prevent the basket from swaying side to side. Here are my photos 56733



- C18100

Delivered as promised, all the pieces were there, assembled by myself in about an hour..Looks like it will work great. Only suggestion might be to include some reflective paint or decals on the corners. While not necessarily required by law, I think it is a good idea to have, and now will have to go purchase separately... 448643

I just did 800 miles with this cargo carrier and had no problem, but make sure you purchase the anti rattle pin because it has some play in the hitch. 167460

The Cargo Carrier was easy to assemble. The fact it's aluminum and not steel makes it light weight and easy to handle compared to the steel counterpart. The nice size makes it handy to store in the box of the pick-up or fold up on the hitch. Endless applications, just stay under 500 pound loads. 538447



- C18100

Examined, assembled, and tested - not yet actually used on the road. The downsides are too minor to drop it to 4 Stars. I didn't have a scale handy, but this is easily about half the weight of the steel rack of the same size - Yes !! While I know from experience with sheet-metal shearing that VERY sharp edges can be created, my unit did not have much of any such problem. I recommend that these edges be carefully felt, and smoothed with a file or grinding stone if needed, before assembly. The instructions were clear and correct. I would use the word "snug" instead of "80%" to describe bolt tightening during assembly. Any experienced mechanic knows to not fully tighten any fasteners until all related alignment parts are in place. I would absolutely recommend that the bolts of Step 1 and 4 be inserted with the smooth head on the inside (where the bag would touch), rather than with nuts/bolts inside as pictured where they could cause damage. I would also absolutely use a dry lubricant, such as spray Teflon, on the contact surfaces between 2" shank #6 and foldable connection bar #9. This will allow you to tighten the big pivot bolt VERY snug, and still easily rotate the joint - DO NOT USE ANY LIQUID LUBRICANT. The hitch-pin hole location did not line up if fully inserted into my hitch. I could have used it that way, but I marked and drilled a better-location pin hole instead. The unit feels very strong - no sign of bending even with my 240 pounds bouncing on the rearmost end. Yes people, ALL hitches are wiggly "loose" by design - use a hitch tightener U-Bolt/Plate assembly, and/or actually tie the left and right ends to the vehicle. 276759


Comments

I havent had occasion to load it with 500 pounds, but I did put 300 pounds of trash bags on it dont ask and it worked just fine. There is some rust already showing on the steel parts - they could have been painted/coated better.

Before I go to the product review, I have to say that the service you receive from etrailer is second to none. From the quick and simple order process, to the speedy delivery time, on to the follow-up emails to ensure I received my product on time. (A+) As for as the product, exactly what I was looking for, lightweight yet sturdy. I would certainly recommend both the business and the product. My new go to place! 569294

Couldn't be more pleased. prompt delivery, product as described, I had it on the back of my Highlander within an hour. The enclosed instructions aren;t extremely detailed and I used the picture more than the printed word. One word of advice for other infrequent tool handlers- Really, Really don't tighten the connections completely until all of the nuts and bolts are in place. I went back and forth a few times because I ignored this in the instructions. 114287

Good quality product. All parts are well made and fit together nicely. When assembling I recommend keeping the nuts slightly loose until all of the bolts are in place.

The Curt folding aluminum cargo carrier that I ordered from from etrailer looks very good. it is light and very manageable. I plan to use it on the back of our 24' motor home. It will be awhile before I get to install it. However what I am most impressed with is etrailer. The ordering, tracking, receiving experience was superb! Also, the etrailer site is the most instructive product site that I have ever come across. Every product is described in minute detail with photos, videos, and customer install pictures. My order was trackable throughout this process and there was always an etrailer staff providing a phone number if I needed help - really good show! 662019

I'm very pleased with this product. It's light and easy to store when not in use, yet large and strong enough to haul Christmas to grandma's house. The aluminum mesh bottom is holding up well. You must be careful not to load it with hard and heavy items that will exert a heavy point load. It works very well with the cargo bag. 590234

It is nicely light weight, but I thought the whole construction was going to be aluminum. Makes sense the tongue is not, but the metal they used for the tongue and supports do not seem like they are going to be very durable. While assembling it, I didn't realize I overtightened since I didn't think I was putting a lot of force into the turns, but I caused the tongue to bend in on itself some. I had an anti-rattler on it, but both with a load and empty, I wasn't hearing any noise from it, which was better than I had expected. After the first use of this in a little bit of a snow storm, I was taking it off my vehicle and found the paint on the non-aluminum metal was already chipping off and was beginning to get surface rust. I had gotten the aluminum carrier for durability from road salt, but I don't think that's going to work out for me. It wasn't too expensive so if I can get 2-3 years out of it, I'll be happy. 582038

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack Combined on a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Class B Motorhome
  • I have a solution for you, however, neither the Maxx-Tow 20x47, part # MT70108 or the Curt 19x60 carrier, part # C18100 can have bike rack extensions added to them. Instead, I recommend Hollywood Rack's Sport Rider SE2 with Cargo Carrier, part # HR1450Z-85. This is a Class III rack that is rated for large van and RV use. It can carry two 50 pound bikes and up to 100 pounds of cargo in the carrier, and the carrier and rack can be used independently of each other on other vehicles.

  • Lightweight Cargo Carrier Needed for Use on a 2017 Subaru Forester
  • We do have a few options for you to choose from. I recommend going with an aluminum carrier because they are much lighter than a steel cargo carrier. The Curt # C18100 is a 19x60 carrier that weighs in at 29 lbs and has inside dimensions of 60" long x 19-1/8" wide x 2-3/4" tall. This carrier also has a folding feature for extra rear clearance when you aren't carrying anything. A hitch pin and clip like part # PC3 are sold separately. For a comparable carrier that has higher sides...

  • Tie Down Straps for Curt Cargo Bag # C18210
  • Tie-down straps can certainly be added to the Curt Cargo Bag # C18210 that you referenced for even more security but one of the great things about this particular bag is that it actually features 6 integrated straps that are designed to hold it in place inside a cargo basket like the excellent Curt # C18100 that you also mentioned. This means you don't need to add any straps if you don't want to as the bag comes ready to mount out of the box. You can feed the integrated straps through...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier For 2018 Kia Soul With 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • There is a way for you to use a folding cargo carrier on your 2018 Kia Soul that has a trailer hitch with a Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch installed, which will be either the the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24915 or Curt Trailer Hitch # C11419, as both will fit your '18 Soul. Along with these trailer hitches you will have to use the Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HTAD, which is the only adapter that can be used in a Class I hitch. It should also be noted that the use of...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier For 2019 Nissan Murano
  • Yes, the etrailer.com hitch part # E98907 is the same design as the Curt hitch part # C13205 available for the 2019 Nissan Murano except the etrailer.com hitch is matte black and the Curt is glossy. I have attached photos of the Curt hitch on a 2018 Nissan Murano since we have not yet had a chance to install a hitch on a 2019. The Curt hitch will fit the same as the etrailer version. The etrailer.com hitch part # E98907 has a 350 lb tongue weight capacity but you do not want to exceed...

  • Can I Carry A Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Or Cargo Carrier With My 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
  • Great news! We do offer a a hitch for your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. I recommend the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch part # C13383 because the 2" hitch will be the most versatile when it comes to accessories like bike racks. There are more options to fit the 2" hitch compared to the 1-1/4" hitch. The Curt 2" hitch is a glossy black powder no drill-installation hitch that can handle up to 400 lbs of tongue weight. If you prefer a matte black option for a more rugged...

  • Price Comparison To Other Online Retailers
  • It looks like you are interested in the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18100. This is a 19 x 60 inch aluminum folding carrier that is designed for 2 inch receivers. This carrier weighs just 30 lbs, but has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. You will want to make sure you do not exceed the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle so you will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership. We do have a Lowest Price Pledge. We use our huge buying power to offer the lowest prices. If...

  • Curt Cargo Carrier with Rise in Shank Recommendation
  • For a similar Curt folding cargo carrier to the # C18100 that you referenced that has a rise built into the shank you would want the part # C18153. This carrier is a bit larger at 24 x 60 inches but does have a 2 inch rise built into the shank. I attached a link to a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Cargo Carrier
  • Curt steel hitch cargo carrier # C18153 has a shipping weight of 71-lbs. Their aluminum carrier # C18100 has a shipping weight of 29-lbs (because it is lightweight aluminum rather than steel). The low-cost Stromberg Carlson steel cargo carrier # CC-100 has a shipping weight of 40-lbs. The weight differences are due to the different materials used and the fact that the Stromberg Carlson carrier does not fold up, so it does not have the added weight that comes from a folding hinge mechanism.

  • Recommended Aluminum Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier for Corrosion Resistance
  • We have one aluminum folding option for you and it is the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - 500 lbs # C18100. This carrier is well made and will store close to your vehicle when not in use. We have a few other aluminum options also rated for 500 lbs capacity but they don't have the folding option. I've listed them below to assist. MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp # MT70100 27x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier w/ 60" Pivoting Ramp # MT70275 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier...

  • Compatibility and Weight Capacity of Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier # C18153
  • The Curt 24x60 cargo basket you referenced, part # C18153 would indeed be compatible with the 2 inch receiver on a Honda Pilot. The basket itself does have a 500 lb capacity, but that capacity will be reduced because the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle or the hitch installed on itis less than 500 lbs. Honda bases the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle (maximum amount of downward force that can be safely applied to the receiver) on the number of occupants in the vehicle. The...

  • Folding Aluminum Cargo Carrier that Measures 24 by 60 Inches
  • The only folding aluminum cargo carrier we have is the Curt # C18100 which measures 19 by 60 inches. We do have a folding cargo carrier that is 24 by 60 inches. The Curt # C18151 however, it's steel not aluminum.

  • Recommended Folding and Non-Folding Cargo Carrier Options for 2004 Toyota Highlander
  • For a folding carrier, I really like the Curt 24x60 Carrier, part # C18153. The carrier features a long shank, which allows plenty of clearance between the basket and the rear of the vehicle, which allows the basket to fold up before it hits the rear bumper of the vehicle. The # C18100 is a smaller, but much lighter option. If the 19x60 size works for you it would also be a good choice, but it would sit closer to the rear bumper. You'll need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole...

  • Raising a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Out of Exhaust Path on a Buick Enclave
  • On any vehicle that has exhaust that exits straight out the back and not out the side or towards the ground could potentially damage a trailer hitch mounted item and its contents. I believe I have a great solution for you though. To get enough distance from the exhaust you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210 and that will get you plenty far from the exhaust. For a carrier, if using the multipurpose ball mount, you can use any carrier that fits a 2 inch receiver. The receiver portion...

  • Aluminum vs. Steel Cargo Carrier are there Any Disadvantages for Aluminum Construction
  • You are correct there is a weight advantage for aluminum, item # C18100, over steel, item # CC-100, but the biggest reason aluminum is considered over steel, for most of our customers, is corrosion resistance and appearance. You do not need to upkeep the carrier with spray paint every couple of years with aluminum like you do steel. As far as disadvantages, there really are none. As long as the weight capacity of the aluminum carrier is rated the same as the steel carrier they will both...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Bike Adapter to Carry Two Bikes on Rear of Travel Trailer
  • I don't recommend using a folding carrier on the rear of a travel trailer, and here's why. Due to the stiffer suspension and the long rear overhang (distance between the rear axle and the back bumper) any accessory installed in a hitch at the rear of a travel trailer will be subjected to much more severe bouncing and jarring forces than would be experienced if the accessory were installed in a hitch on a passenger vehicle. The folding portion of the carrier is a likely failure point, which...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-150 With Minimum Tailgate Interference
  • Hitch mount cargo carriers were certainly not designed to be used as a step, but I will admit that I have used a cargo carrier to climb into the back of a truck before. The weight capacity should not be an issue since each of the cargo carriers you mentioned have a weight capacity of 500 lbs, but the wobble could make the step uneasy if you do not step directly in the center of the cargo carrier. You should also keep in mind that the floor of the cargo carrier is metal and moisture could...

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2012 Subaru Impreza
  • As you mentioned in your question, there is a very large selection of cargo baskets that are compatible with the 2 inch trailer hitch receiver on your 2012 Subaru Impreza. When choosing one that is right for you, you will want to consider what you plan on carrying along with the weight capacity of your vehicle. The folding feature on the Curt 20x60 # C18151 or 24x60 # C18153 is nice to have when the carrier is not in use. The mesh floor on these units will allow for it to be folded up without...

  • Mounting Base Dimension and Installed Height of Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier Bike Adapter CC-125
  • When bolted into place on the deck of a hitch cargo carrier like # C18153 or # C18100 the pointed tip of the adapter will be 11-1/2-inches above the mounting surface. This measurement is taken in a straight vertical direction above the carrier deck. The mounting bracket has overall dimensions of 8-1/4 x 2-inches. I took these two measurements myself in our warehouse and I put both on the photo I prepared for you. The real limiting factor in how many of these pairs of bike carriers...

  • Does Curt Folding Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 Have License Plate Mounting Holes, Does it Rattle
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt regarding the Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # C18100. She stated that there are no holes specifically for mounting a license plate. However, what can be done is to drill the necessary holes if needed. If any of the holes line up, you can use them for a license plate. There will be some rattle or play at the folding bracket. It can be kept to a minimum with all the hardware installed and tightened properly. With any folding carrier, there will always...

  • Is Stromberg Carlson Bike Rack Adapter for Cargo Carriers # CC-125 Compatible with Curt # C18100
  • Yes, the Stromberg Carlson Bike Rack Adapter for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers # CC-125 will work fine on the Curt cargo carrier # C18100. Installation is shown in the linked video. The bike rack includes the required installation hardware and 2 nylon tie-down straps to secure your bikes to the carrier during travel.

  • Clearance of Bumper With Curt Cargo Carrier on 2016 Lexus RX 350
  • The Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 will fold up without hitting the bumper of your 2016 Lexus RX 350; you will have 1/2" of clearance space when using either of the two hitches that fit, the Curt # C13272 or Draw-Tite # 75540. It may still be worth it to use the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount with 2" Receiver for Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers # D210 if you plan on towing or for simple peace of mind. Another option would be Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151, which is not only a bit larger,...
