Video Transcript for Curt Folding Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be talking a look at 19 by 60 CURT Folding Shank Cargo Carrier. This has been designed for use in 2" hitches. It offers a 500 pound weight capacity. The part number on it is C18109. Installation of our cargo carrier is very simple. Simply going to slide the shank of the carrier into the receiver tube of our hitch. Now we want to slide it in far enough so that our pinhole lines up with our hitch pinhole.

Once we have those lined up we're going to take our standard 5/8 pin. Our 7-pull interferes a little bit here but we'll take our standard 5/8 pin and slide that through, and then we'll secure it on the other side with a clip. Now the pin and clip are sold separately. You can find those on our website. It will be listed under part number PC3. As you can see, the carrier's going to stow up against the rear of your vehicle when not in use.

This is going to give us some extra room and save us some clearance so maybe we don't have to take it off to park in the garage or something like that. The fold it away from the vehicle, it's a very simple process. We'll remove the pin and clip located there at the base, allow it to rotate away, and then we'll simply come over here and reinsert our pin in the new hole and secure it with the clip. As you can see, all the way around the perimeter of the carrier we do have a nice 2-1/2" raised lip. This is going to help to keep our cargo in place. It also offers us some nice tie-down locations that are pre-drilled all the way around.

On both sides we have two holes located here, and another two here. These are going to allow for easy license plate relocation. If our cargo comes up and it's going to be blocking our license plate we'll want to just move that plate here to the rear. It's got a nice, wide open expanded mesh floor. That's going to allow any of that dirt and debris to fall down through, especially from wet or muddy items that we might now want inside of our vehicle staining our interior. The black corrosion-resistant finish is really going to help out when it comes to any kind of build-up of dirt that might sit on there and prevent that from causing any rust issues, giving us a good long-lasting, durable finish. The shank of the rank starts all the way here at the front and it follows fully all the way underneath, and we've got our stabilizer braces that are going to go up both sides.

It's any easy bolt-together assembly. Something that you can really easily do at home. Just takes a couple wrenches or crescent wrenches. Now that we've gone over some of the key features, we're going to load this carrier down with gear and let you see what it looks like as we take it through our test course. This is the last of our 50 pound bags. We've loaded up four of them so this is going to simulate 200 pounds going down the road. We'll strap them in, of course, before we go. Then we'll go out to the test course. We'll start by going through the slalom. That's going to show the side to side movement of our carrier, just like if we we're changing lanes or going around corners. Once we do go around the corner we'll come into the alternating bumps. That's going to show the torquing action or side to side action on the rack. It's like if we we're going over maybe a curb or a pothole, something like that. Then we get into our salad speedbumps; it will show that up and down movement just like going in and out of driveways or parking lots. That will complete today's look at the CURT Folding Shank 19 by 60 Cargo Carrier, part number C18109. .

Took about 3/4 of an hour to put this together today...very good instructions and everything fit just perfect...had to put it together on the tailgate of my truck because I had too much "stuff" in my garage or it might have only taken 1/2 hour...I do like the tracking link, it was great...and the followup emails from George were all about customer service, thank you...I WILL buy from etrailer again...United Airlines could probably take some lessons from this company, at least from the customer service aspect... 367830


Excellent...it works just perfect for what Im using it for...and my contact with etrailer was excellent also...thank you...and like Arnold says Ill beback :-

Product arrived and was exactly as I expected. I actually ordered 2 because I wanted a single carrier 89 inches wide to mount on the rear bumper of my motor home. I did the modifications to the carriers (making 3 sections with two splices) to get the length needed. I made some additional parts to secure the carrier to the bumper (mostly modifications of the existing parts). I am having the new parts powder coated. When I get the finished product mounted on my RV, I will send a picture. 438156


Now after a year the carrier has been working perfectly. I carry two generators and a satellite dish on the carrier. It has more carrying capacity because it has four mounts to the RV bumper. It has traveled over 6000 miles.

This review is really more for etrailer rather than the carrier. Problems happen sometimes - especially with online ordering - so it really comes down to how that problem is handled in order to accurately gauge customer service. We had an issue from the manufacturer and etrailer let me know right away and then fixed it. They are 5 star in my book! 678591

This rack was simple to assemble with basic hand tools and seems to be very well constructed. I am pleased with the fit and the finish. 591456

Great price, Great product, Fast shipping, I love it ! 586262

Was quite easy to assemble, instructions are decent. When in the hitch receiver it has some room so is a bit wobbly, but I remedied that with some thin plastic inserted on a couple of sides so now it doesn't wobble much at all. One other modification I made is that I made two washers out of thinner plastic and placed them on the bolt at the folding point, one on each side between the metal, so now it doesn't scratch the paint when you fold the tray and it is snug enough to where the tray will also not wobble back and forth on that bolt. Haven't put any cargo on it yet, but it holds 190lbs of my weight(in the center) rocking up and down... 412928


Soon after purchase weve taken a camping road trip and this cargo tray proved to be an excellent purchase. We put a lot of gear in a couple of big plastic boxes that fit just right on the tray to fill it up, strapped the boxes, then put some more stuff on top and strapped that too. Could barely feel that the tray was on the car... doesnt add anything to the drag really, folds up nicely when not needed... great accessory...

The cargo carrier was delivered early. Easy to assemble and worked great for my camping trip. It freed up space for my dogs in the SUV. Quality material for a fair price. 230070

Very easy to put together with only a few tools. I have now taken my lawn mower in to be serviced for spring. I like the way it folds up not to extend my vehicle's length. Just what I was looking for. Chuck 177407

Ask the Experts about this Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?

  • Best Cargo Bag for Use with Curt Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier C18109
  • The Curt hitch-mount cargo carrier # C18109 measures 59-7/8 long x 19-1/8 wide on the inside of its side rails so with it you can use a cargo bag like the Curt waterproof bag # C18210 or the similar but slightly larger 15-cubic-foot bag # C18211. Since cargo bags are soft and flexible in some cases you might actually want a bag that is larger than the basket's footprint to allow for some "wiggle room" to allow an easier fit for your cargo items that might be especially tall. But strictly...

  • Folding Cargo Rack That Clears the Spare Tire on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • What determines if a cargo carrier will fold is the distance from the center hitch pin hole to the nearest point on the carrier when the rack is folded up compared to the distance from the center hitch pin hole to the furthest point of the spare tire. This distance depends on the size of the shank that is inserted into the receiver for each product. We determine this distance on most of the products we sell and it is listed in the "Product Specifications" section of the item's detailed...

  • Recommended Folding 2 Inch Cargo Carrier for UTV to Carry Game
  • When used on a UTV to carry game, I recommend the Viking Solutions Tilt-N-Go II Hauler and Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # 310-VTG002 or # 310-VTG401 if you want the option of the coupler as well. This carrier allows you the option of moving the game to your UTV. If you just want a basic folding carrier, then I recommend the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Folding - 500 lbs # C18109. With either option, you may want the Erickson Cam Buckle Tie-Down...

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier with Lights and Anti-Rattle Device for 2016 Chevrolet Suburban
  • To select the best option in a folding 2-inch hitch cargo carrier for use on your 2016 Suburban you will want to take note of one clearance dimension, the distance from the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the vehicle (probably the bumper cover). This dimension will allow you to choose a carrier that will still fit nicely when you have it folded up in the storage position. The linked article illustrates taking this simple measurement.

  • Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • The most economical folding trailer hitch mount cargo carrier that I would recommend is Curt carrier # C18109. It is a 19x60 inch for 2 inch trailer hitches. But it only measures 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up. This probably will not clear the spare tire on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. The 24x60 inch carrier # C18153 measures 9 inches to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up so it is more likely to fit. If more...

  • Recommended Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2016 Honda CR-V
  • I took a look at the owner's manual for your 2016 Honda CR-V and it states that you can tow a maximum of 1,500 lbs and your tongue weight should be approximately 10 percent, which means the transmission you are carrying would need to be no more than roughly 150 lbs. With that in mind, you can use a hitch-mounted cargo carrier so long as it matches the class of the hitch on your '16 CR-V. I recommend the Class III Draw-Tite # 75742 hitch for your Honda over the option from Curt because...

  • Installation of Pro Series Hitch Cargo Carrier # PS1040100 on 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Since the capacity of the Pro Series Hitch Cargo Carrier, part # PS1040100, is derived from the design and correct assembly of the cargo carrier, I cannot recommend to modify the assembly or installation in any way. When a part is modified it can reduce the integrity and safety of the cargo carrier, along with the weight capacity. The shank on the cargo carrier measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the raised side of the platform and raises 4 inches for clearance...

  • Comparing Curt Cargo Carrier C18109 and Pro Series Carrier 6502
  • No, these are 2 different brands. The Pro Series carrier is made by Cequent/Horizon Global and on it is # 6502. The other one, # C18109, is made by Curt manufacturing. The Curt model is also larger at 19 x 60 inches compared to 20 x 48 inches for # 6502. Both only fit 2 inch trailer hitches, both can fold up, and both have a 500 pound capacity. Another key difference is that the Curt model has a straight shank and the Pro Series has a rise in the shank (if more ground clearance is needed)....

  • How Is Curt Cargo Bag C18210 Secured to Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The Curt Cargo Bag # C18210 attaches to a hitch-mounted cargo carrier such as the Curt # C18109 using the six included nylon straps. These are shown in the linked review video at the 1:40 mark. This waterproof bag features heavy-duty vinyl fabric and welded seams to protect your cargo items from UV exposure and moisture.

  • Will Curt Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier # C180109 Clear the Bumper on a 2015 Honda Pilot
  • On the Curt cargo carrier # C18109 when it is down for use it measures11-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. When folded up that same measurement is 5 inches. To determine if this is enough clearance for your 2015 Honda Pilot (which I am almost certain it is) you can measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch straight back to the end of the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 5 inches it will fit when folded or...

  • Recommended Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2013 Jeep Wrangler
  • Thank you for the measurements, they helped a great deal. With those measurements you need a carrier that is going to be less than 5-3/4", which would be the Curt # C18109. This is a steel carrier that is 60-1/4" long x 19-5/8" wide and has sides that are only 2-3/4" high. The short sides and the fact that the shank does not rise means it will allow you to open the rear door. The only drawback is that there's only 5" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier...

  • Will a Curt Folding Cargo Carrier Clear the Rear Bumper of a 2015 GMC Terrain
  • On your 2015 GMC Terrain with Curt trailer hitch # 13591 installed it will measure approximately 3-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to clear the rear bumper. On Curt cargo carrier # C18109 when folded up it measures 5 inches to the nearest part of the carrier so it will clear the rear of the vehicle by 1-3/4 inches. The distance from the trailer hitch receiver to the bottom of the rear hatch on the Terrain is fairly far. The carrier when folded down and empty would...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier that Will Clear the Spare of Honda CR-V When Folded Up
  • I have a solution for you that SHOULD work well, the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18109. When we installed a hitch on a similar CR-V as yours we measured from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear spare and found that dimension to be 8-3/4 inches. You will need to measure the hitch of your vehicle to verify that you have the same dimension. The # C18109 has a distance of 10-1/4 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest portion...

  • Is there a Straight Shank Available for Reese Cargo Carrier 63153
  • There isn't an alternate straight shank for Reese cargo carrier # 63153 so if you already have it you'd be stuck with the regular shank with the slight rise in it. But if you do not have a carrier yet there are some options that have a straight shank: # MT70260 which also folds and has a ramp # MT70106 also folds and has a ramp # MT70107 # MT70422 aluminum # MT70100 folds, ramp, aluminum # MT70108 aluminum # C18151 folds # C18109 folds # C18100 folds, aluminum # C18145 # C18108 #...

  • Is the 2-Inch Shank Portion of Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 Made of Aluminum or Steel
  • The Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 features aluminum construction throughout, including the 2-inch tubular shank portion that fits into your hitch receiver. This material is responsible for the substantial reduction in the carrier's weight as compared to a similar Curt carrier made of steel. The aluminum carrier # C18100 weighs 29-lbs versus 40-lbs for the steel # C18109. Both feature the same 500-lb cargo capacity.

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • I believe your best option is going to be the part # C18109. This carrier does not have a rise built into the shank of the carrier so your rear door should open over it without a problem. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the carrier platform is 11-1/4 inches, so there would be a tiny portion of the carrier that would be covered by the rear spare. Most likely it would only be about an inch.

  • When folded up the Curt trailer hitch mount cargo carrier # C18109 measures just 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier so it would not work on your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
