Good rack for the money. 794420

- C18109

I have not had the chance to load the basket down yet, but I was able to easily follow the assembly instructions and put the thing together. It fits in the hitch receiver as expected and stays attached to my Subaru Outback when folded up! The product also feels well made. Plus I am happy I went with this 'lower profile' option versus some of the 'bulkier' options. The vertical sidewalls end up rising higher than it looks in the photos and the hook holes are plenty large enough for whatever straps you plan to use (I was a little concerned they would be too tiny). Only concern I have is that the basket does wobble quite a bit when folded up and backing up (which I can view in the backup camera). I know there will always be some amount of 'play' with the tow receiver and basket shank clearances, but I also have never had to tow anything before so the wobbling took me by surprise. But I have seen tests of other baskets online and it looks like they all wobble too, so I am not too worried. 768432

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

got the cargo carrier friday evening 10-20-17 and put it together on saturday and put it on the jeep for hunting. went together real easy and really happy with it. good service from you. dont know how to post a picture. 444812

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.

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...

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 :-

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

  • 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...

  • Would Curt Cargo Carrier # C18109 Fit 2020 Kia Telluride
    As long as you have a 2 inch trailer hitch installed on your 2020 Kia Telluride like the Curt # C13420 the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18109 would fit and work well. We don't have any video or pictures we can share that show the fit, but based on the bumper clearance the Curt hitch provided when we installed it we know this carrier would fit and work really well. I attached a picture of the Curt hitch installed on a similar Telluride for you to check out. You can see that there's quite...

  • 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 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...

  • 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 to Carry Vespa Scooter on 2014 Jeep Compass
    The Curt cargo carrier, part # C18109 would be suitable for carrying that amount of weight, but it's not recommended that a scooter such as a Vespa be carried on it. A scooter like your Vespa has a very strong weight bias to the rear. These carriers are meant to have the weight evenly distributed from side to side, and having more than 2/3 of the weight concentrated on one side of the carrier's center point will place torquing forces on that carrier as well as the hitch that would cause...

  • 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...

    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. The carrier that has the most clearance when folded up is Pro Series carrier # 6502. It measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
