Video Transcript for Curt Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be talking a look at the CURT folding cargo carrier. They've designed this for use in 2" hitches. It offers a 500 pound weight capacity. The part number on it is C18151. Now as you can see, one of the great features that we have is the ability to tilt the cargo carrier up against the rear of our vehicle. This is going to give us extra storage options so we don't have it hanging out here. To get it out of the storage position into the loaded position you got a pin and clip located here at the base.

We're going to pull that, bring that carrier on down. We're going to slide the pin back in here in the new set of holes and resecure it with our clip. As you can see, this basket-style cargo carrier is going to make it very easy to get gear outside of your vehicle into the basket, freeing up room for passengers and pets. This is also going to help us get the wet, muddy, dirty items out of our vehicle, place them into the cargo carrier, and allow them to dry. The surface itself is an expanded steel. This is going to allow all that dirt and debris and things like that to fall down through it. Very easy to clean.

We're just going to hose it off and allow that stuff to go on through. Now all the way around the perimeter we have a raised side rail. This side rail's going to help hold our gear into place. It's 5-1/2" from the top of the platform to the top of the rail here, so as you can see, gives us a good secure fit. This is also going to create several tie-down points.

These are going to go all the way around allowing us to hook straps in wherever we need them to secure our gear. We've got good visibility from three sides. We've got a reflector that's here on the passenger side. We've got two reflectors on the rear and another one on the driver side. This is going to help that night time visibility to help people see that we've got a cargo carrier behind the vehicle. Now that we've gone over some of the key features of the rack, let's go ahead and show you how to install it onto our car. Installation's going to be a simple process.

We're going to slide the shank of the rack right into the receiver tube of our hitch. Now we've got a hole in the shank that we need to get lined up with our hitch pinhole. Once we have those lined up we're going to take our pin and clip. The pin and clip are sold separately. Here's our pin. We're going to slide that through and we'll secure it here on the other side with our clip. Now the part number on the pin and clip we're using is part number PC3. If you don't already have one at home you can check out our website and pick one up there. Once we've got our hitch pin in, as you can see we are going to have a little bit of play and a little bit of movement in the rack. If you'd like to get rid of that and at the same lock your cargo carrier onto your vehicle, we do have an anti-rattle locking hitch pin available. Its part number is 63232. We're going to pull the same pin and clip we did earlier to tilt it away from our vehicle into its platform position. We'll reinsert the pin here to hold it. Now our cargo carrier has a nice black powder coat finish. This is going to help resist any corrosion or rust down the road, giving us a long lasting product and it's going to look good for a long time. It's made of steel construction. It's fully welded all the way around. They also offer you a limited warranty of one year on the product. All we've got to do now is load our cargo carrier now with a couple hundred pounds worth of gear and we'll get it out onto the test course to let you see what it looks like in action. Here at the test course we're going to start by going through the slalom. This is going to show the side-to-side movement of the rack as if we we're changing lanes or turning corners. As we go around the corner into the alternating speed bumps we're going to see the torquing or twisting action on the rack as if we maybe hit a pothole or a curb. Once we get into our salad speed bumps we'll see the up and down action of the rack just like going in and out of a driveway or a parking garage. That's going to complete today's look at the CURT cargo carrier designed for 2" hitches, part number C18151.

It was very hard to figure out what kind of cargo carrier would be the best for my needs, until I got on your website. Your videos are very informative to help with making the decision of which cargo carrier was best. It was very easy to put together, and very strong (I put my husband in it)this is perfect for our vacation transportation. 259240

THE BEST PRODUCT I EVER BOUGHT FOR HAULING. WE USED THIS FOR VACATION, WOOD, TRAVEL TO OUR SUMMER HOME.. ITS GREAT

I had researched what type of carrier I wanted to buy and settled on this one. I was a good size, folded and has a railing to attach straps to. I also wanted to buy a cargo bag and anti rattle hitch lock but was not sure which ones were the right ones for my vehicle and this carrier. I called the company and spoke with a woman who was very friendly and helpful. She was able to confirm that the cargo bag I was looking at would be a good fit and told me what anti rattle hitch lock would work best. I placed the order and could not wait to receive the items. I received a e-mail within an hour confirming my order and that the order had been shipped. I received the order in two days rather than three as I had been told which was a nice surprise. I put together the carrier by myself and put it on my 2012 Dodge Durango and it fit perfectly. I was very pleased. The instructions could be done a little better but I am very pleased with the service and product so far and am looking forward to using it on our first trip. I feel confident that I got the best products to fit my needs and a great price. 58681

Product came in the next day after being expedited for free. I was told 3-5 business days so that was a great surprise. Took me 15-20 minutes to set up. Its a little cumbersome but once on the truck is feels solid. There are other reviews that complain about the 1-2 inch play up and down but I believe that the manufacturer made it a little smaller at the receiver end to allow for certain hitches that have a build up of dirt or rust. Most recommend washers but I opted for wooden shims to stabilize it since they will be easier to pull out if needed.I had it loaded to the gills with luggage and a cooler and did not feel any bump whatsoever. It actually felt like it was a part of the truck. I was extremely happy with this hitch carrier and have friends already requesting use of it. I think by the time winter is over it will be paid for by "lending" out for buddies. I didnt attach a picture because there is already a video of a Dodge Durango in the catalog file and it looks exactly how it is in the video. The folding option is awesome! My box came fully intact unlike other unfortunate buyers. Great product! 100235

I just got back from a 2,000 mile road trip with this cargo carrier and it worked great. I also bought an anti-rattle lock instead of using the hitch pin and it held the carrier tight and stable. I didn't even notice the carrier was back there when I was on the highway. I had it hitched to my Acura MDX and it had plenty of room to open the rear door with gear already loaded on the carrier. I also used a Highland cargo bag and was able to fit 5 full duffle bags and a couple sleeping bags and still had room to put probably 1 or 2 more duffle bags. A con of the carrier is connecting the hitch pin. You have to align the holes where the hitch pin goes in exactly right or you'll never get the hitch pin in. I had to lift one side up sometimes and jiggle the carrier just to align the holes. It definitely was not a simple task like the etrailer video shows. The difficulty of connecting the hitch pin prevented me from folding the carrier up more often than I'd like to have done. Other than that, the carrier performed flawlessly. 22964

Just used the carrier this last week which worked great with a storage container and some ratchet straps. You obviously need to be aware of it when coming out of a parking lot with a steep driveway as it will scrape but I only had issues with it once the entire week I used it. The flip up feature works great. Especially when you need to parallel park! I debated about the 20 vs the 24 but the length is plenty if you plan to use it with a storage container or get a few bags of mulch or something. I also chose the smaller version as the TW is 400lbs and this is cantilevered out so you really can't put the max capacity on the carrier depending on the hitch rating. Just be aware of the true dimensions as the interior is not 20x60 (mine measured 19.25x57.5). I also appreciated e-trailer EXCEPTIONAL customer service by ensuring this got to me in time for my trip. I got immediate response from them when asked about shipping and the package actually came ahead of when they promised. I will definitely be using e-trailer again. 148222

Purchased this for my 2009 Suburban. We have four young kids so need lots of extra storage. Net: This product rocks and I highly recommend. The rack went together without a hitch, parts were machined/welded accurately. Took about 30 minutes, but only because my kids were 'helping'. The rack is ROCK SOLID once assembled and haven't had to tighten a single bolt. Fold up feature is great. Since I purchased this in June, 2012, it has traveled over 1,500 miles on two different trips, through rain and across many dirt roads and held up really well. Opportunities for improvement: - the box it arrives in is of very low quality. Fortunately, no damage. - wish the guard rows were higher - be careful on how tightly you fasten the bolt for the hinge, can get sticky Overall: the only thing I would do differently is to have ordered the 24" deep version rather than the 20". Also purchased the water resistant bag and the hitch lock - both highly recommended accessories. 51801

Seems to be a great product and well made. I bought the foldable model as I drive a Jeep Wrangler 4dr. The spare is mounted on the rear tailgate as are all Jeep Wranglers. My only beef is that this model will NOT fold up with a standard Jeep hitch. IT touches the spare tire about a half inch too soon. I asked specificaly about this issue before buying and the lady that helped me gave me the dimensions. I measured it with her on the phone and told her I thought it would not fit with the measurements she gave. I was correct, it will not fold into a locked position. So I can only redrill the insert shaft , the hitch itself, buy a shaft extension or not fold it. The unit is heavy duty and seems well made. However there seems to be alot of play between the shaft insert and the hitch receptacle which will probably make alot of noise on rough roads. overall I am sure it is a good product but e.trailer needs to do some remeasuring. 220777

Easy assembly. .10 min...great quality. .love the folding feature...I bought this for my hunting jeep so I have a spot available to load game but not be forced to have a carrier hanging out at all times...as long as the 500lb rating holds up I couldn't be happier ..I won't need near that but the 300 lb carriers seemed a little lite 430623

Purchased this cargo carrier rather than pay to ship my golf clubs from Florida to Cape Cod. I opted for the Curt Carrier because my 2" hitch was also a Curt and was pleased with the quality. Product arrived promptly (within 5 days of purchase). I was surprised to see it was manufactured in China. I had assumed Curt was a USA manufacturer. However, the carrier was very sturdy and from all indications was well made. No obvious defects in workmanship. Assembly was straight forward with basic tools. Should have ratchet set. I had no problems driving the 1400 miles with it. I did not detect any vibration noise. Because I purchased the folding hitch, I was able to keep the golf clubs in a weather proof vinyl bag and fold up the hitch for the whole trip. This added to my feeling of security since the contents of the vinyl bag was not obvious. Would definitely recommend this product. 186524

Very much appreciated the quick delivery of my order - thank you! My husband assembled the carrier and it seems like a good sturdy product. Unfortunately, a severe illness in the family forced us to cancel our vacation and we have not had an opportunity to use the hitch & carrier yet. 150925

Only had it for 24 hours but great so far! Delivery was right on schedule as I had checked earlier with customer service to determine the delivery date. They were very nice. I put it together with my 115 pound girlfriend doing most of the bolts. Good directions. Sturdily built. Looks fantastic on the back of my F150. Very happy with it! The main bar is a *perfect* fit into my 2inch receiver. Virtually no slop. There is a bit of play between the main bar and the basket. I'm probably going to add two washers on the main hinge bolt to take care of that .. No problem. Next week I'm going to carry my Wen generator around with it. I expect it to perform well. As expected, my backup camera doesn't like it in either the up or down position so I'll need to be extra careful when I back up. Tom 398724

I received my cargo carrier and had it assembled in about an hour. It fits perfectly, helps protect the spare from theft. I can access the 110 ac cord as well as the water heater. Great product, great customer service and great shipment. Now I can take a generator and other extras to Yellowstone NationPark in October. Steve A. Mizera Christmas Valley Oregon 221897

We purchased this for our '03 Trailblazer before we set out on our "Wild West Adventure." 8 days, 11 states, and 4,500 miles later it was just as good as when we hooked it up. It is plenty big, sturdy, and doesn't interfere with the back hatch which was a major selling point for us. 66828

Thank you for the email. Both the cargo bag and the cargo carrier are still going strong. Weve taken a couple more very lengthy road trips since my review and theyre still working just as we had hoped! Our last trip in December 2013 was a little over 4,200 miles and we had no issues at all. We continue to be very happy with our purchase.

I assembled the cargo hauler this morning and while I like the finished product, I had my doubts during the process of putting it together. I wish the instructions actually had directions as to the process. Things would have gone smoother if I had read that ,for instance, the support that fits into the device which allows the product to fold upwards had to go a certain way. Also the placement of the large bolt is vague,but important. I do look forward to using it on a trip next week and appreciate your prompt delivery. I suggest some reflectors be placed on the underside for when it is in the folded position. 58096

This carrier fits great on my '07 Liberty even with the spare tire extending out so far (thanks to etrailer for the great videos and information on dimensions of the rack and specific vehicles!) I took it camping and we were off road with it on some pretty rough terrain, and had no issues at all. The carrier fits pretty tight in the hitch and there is pretty minimal sway with it. The carrier is easy to put together, and is easily put in place by a single person. I ordered on a Wednesday and it was at my house on Friday (I chose the 3-5 day shipping), so the quick shipping was greatly appreciated as well. 209987

Haven't had a chance to use yet but seems to be pretty well constructed and don't expect any issues. Assembly is straightforward. A couple of nits. The instructions seem dated -- the two 12mm bolts holding the frame halves to the shank are hex not carriage bolts. Not a big deal. I added another 12mm flat washer under the bolt head, and used a couple of 16mm flat washers on the 16mm bolt attaching the folding shank assembly to the shank. Would be nice if these were already included. Etrailer.com service was excellent. Ordered on a Thursday and received in Austin, TX following Tuesday. 212955

This was the first time I have ever order something from e-trailer. They did a great job. I would order from them again. I purchase a folding cargo carrier, anti-rattle device and lock and a Highland cargo carrier bag. The folding carrier works great on my 2010 Traverse. I will say that on the Traverse if you have the carrier in the upright position you will want to turn off your back up assist other wise it will go off every time you put the vehicle in reverse. The cargo bag did a good job protected my bags from a heavy rain storm. Overall a great purchase. 21545

Comments

would a scooter fit on this? it weighs about 200lbs and is 26 inches wide x 67 inches long.

-- comment by: Theresa P - 04/23/2014

You may be able to fit the scooter on the carrier. It will depend on how far down the floor board is on the scooter. The inside dimensions of the carrier are 20 inch by 60 inch. If 67 inches is your wheel base, then it's not going to fit. The side rails measure 6 inches tall so they may be tall enough to make contact with the body of the scooter before the wheels and weight are resting on the carrier. A motorcycle carrier may be a better fit, and I have linked to those below.

I bought this to supplement a cheep fixed carrier. All-in-all, very pleased. Solid construction. Fits perfectly on a 2013 Escape with a U-HAUL hitch. Nicky was outstanding in helping me make my selection. Like others have stated, the instructions are pretty much worthless but if you have any common sense, it's a breeze to put together. It would have actually been easier/faster if the manufacturer had left the instructions out completely. 60807

My cargo carrier came in just a little less than 3 days! Very easy installation! Have not used this yet, but it seems very sturdy with lots of space! Only drawback is that I have a 2012 Honda Odyssey Minivan and unless you have a receiver hitch that is longer than the one I purchased (5 & 1/2"), you will need an extension. When I fold the cargo carrier up out of the way, it hits my bumper and will not fold all the way up. Had to go back to etrailers and order a 7" extension! Overall, a great product and great company! 46960

The Curt Cargo Carrier didn't fit properly together. There was a gap on the inside joint and the inside plate had to be filed to make the bolt go through. I think there may have been a milling problem when it was manufactured. I did modify the carrier to hold windsurfing boards and I think that it will work out great for that. I won't be going to the Gorge until probably May so don't have any pictures. I think the carrier is big enough also to carry other items like BBQ, chairs, etc on my motor home. 183605

The cargo carrier itself is actually fine, and fits well with my '99 Tacoma, but it shipped without the hardware (which is clearly supposed to be included) so I couldn't assemble it. That's probably the manufacturer Curt's fault (though etrailer did open the Curt box to add one other small item to my order), but it took 17 days for them to get me the hardware shipped separately, which meant that I had to go and spend $30 of my own on the hardware because my big trip was starting and I couldn't wait any longer. 426117

Extremely Satisfied I highly recommend etailer.com. I recently purchased the C18131 etrailer hitch cargo carrier and am very satisfied. Customer service was great and the product actually shipped one day earlier than quoted. This product was easy to assemble and install in 15 minutes or less. The contstruction is very sturdy. etrailer is very concerned and attentive to the customer needs. I am so satisfied that etrailer.com has earned my future business. Thanks etrailer for an enjoyable shopping experience. 5563

Excellent Product! First day we went out with it on the back of our Kia Sorento, we had 2 people stop to ask about it. We directed both to your website. This is a replacement carrier for us. We had gotten use to all the noise with the previous carrier, so it was quite the surprise to have absolutely no noise from this carrier. It's sturdy, well made, and looks great. Thanks again for providing the videos showing how the product functions. It helped with the decision-making process. 428463

This product did not assemble well. It comes in halves and when assembled the two leaves of the trailer platform (left and right) bowed downward so that the middle of the carriage was nearly an inch higher than either end. No amount of loosening or tightening bolts in any order will correct it. It is a sloppy manufacturing job. A box or any other flat object rocks from side to side if placed in the center of the rack. It's a very limiting problem and an indicator of poor quality control. 411491

Love this carrier! It's made traveling with lots of stuff, so much easier. Don't know if we've had it at capacity weight or not but it's shown no signs of any failure. When driving I've been surprised that there's no bounce that I've noticed at all. I feel safer with this carrier than with things strapped to the top of my vehicle which are hard to get to. The price was awesome. It's not too heavy for me to pop on & off & storage is easy. Love it! 324237

EXCELLENT PRODUCTS AND SERVICE!!!!! This thing was exactly as described, arrived in two days, assembled super easy and is clearly the best value on the market. You just don't find this kind of quality and service any more. Katie from Etrailer even sent me an email asking if I had received my products and asked if I was satisfied.....off the charts Etrailer, you and your staff are a 10 out of 10!!!!!!! Thanks to you and your team.... 29260

This is the 2nd Curt folding hitch carrier I've ordered from e-trailer. Their shipping is lightning fast (3 days in my case). Easy to assemble, this is a great add-on to almost any vehicle with a 2" receiver. You don't need this folding model if you have a spare on the rear door (it wouldn't clear my FJ rear-door mounted spare in the fold-up position). lt works, you just can't fold it up. 32223

Easy to put together. However, when folding up the side rails must push inwards the bumper to close. Not a good fit to my vehicle. Full closure means pushing my bumper a good inch. Driving with it up will cause paint damage and scratches. I wanted the high rails to keep items secure. So, not sure what I want to do yet. 79024

But a 7 hitch extension. Works on my full size van and Hummer.

Extensions can be problem solvers, just keep in mind weight capacities of extensions.

What a great product. Easy to assemble. Loaded well and rode so well, I didn't even notice it was back there while driving. Very glad I purchased this and the price was awesome as well. 292726

Assembly was easy but no hitch pin, thought they should have included one or at least made it clear there was none. Have not used it yet because I have to go buy a hitch pin, but it looks just like advertised. I plan on using it to carry extra cargo that will not fit in my SUV and all that stuff I get at the lumber yard I don't want to put inside. Nice to keep the dirt outside. 379924

Does not fit '99 Ford I thought this was just what I was looking for. I'd borrowed a similar one from a friend and loved it. Unfortunitly this does not fold when attached to my 99 Ford Expedition. When it is flat with the pin in it does not lay flat, it sits at an angle. Still usable but If I'd known these things might be a problem I would have ordered the cheaper one instead. 3018

We just visited Washington DC with our 5 Grandchildren. Since the 2006 Rendezvous only has 7 seats and no storage this product was great. I purchased the Trailer Hitch and the Cargo Rack both. The hitch was very simple to install and what a blessing the Cargo Rack was. We had plenty of room all the luggage for 7 and never even knew it was there. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!! 20602

Just assembled it today. Very straight forward and simple assembly. Welds and finish were excellent. Haven't actually used it yet, but I think that once I install a device to take the play out between the receiver and the carrier this will be great to use for road trips. etrailer shipping was super quick. Ordered it on July 4th and it arrived on the 7th. 403157

The carrier was well constructed and easy to put together. I did add an additional hole in the receiver bar to bring the carrier closer to the back of the car. 102149

Great cargo carrier. Easy to assemble and high quality. I chose this model because I have a Jeep and needed a carrier that would fit on my hitch without requiring me to remove the full size spare from the back. This model was perfect for that. I recommend order the cargo net and/or bungee cords as well. 100% satified with product and with etrailer.com! 9079

Speedy delivery after ordering. I couldn't find instructions till I opened the little pack. The tubing where the two halves join were both pinched out of round, not allowing the mating till I corrected the situation with a wrench. I'm attaching the unit to the Motorhome class B tomorrow. So far I'm happy with the unit and speed of delivery John M. 88325

Glamping made easy! We have a BMW X1 and this made packing for our most recent camping trip a breeze. As this is our first time owning a cargo carrier we weren't sure how it'd affect the drivability, but for the most part, it was fairly unnoticeable and the car was very stable. My only complaint is that we should have purchased this sooner. 426003

The cargo carrier arrived promptly and I was able to assemble it and test install it in less than an hour. The information and videos on the eTrailer website were extremely helpful because there were many options to choose from. The additional advice I got from Anthony at etrailer helped me make the right choice. 456906

Good quality. Simple to assemble, but it was an advantage to have a helper for assembly. Will not fold up completely to many cars with "Continental" spare tire. But the longer than usual extension allows it to fit such cars without folding up, whereas other cargo carriers with shorter shanks might not fit them. 39938

The carrier is well made and sturdy. The silent hitch pin does its job well too. I haven't had the chance to haul anything substantial yet but I am confident in the whole system! And etrailer is awesome! They shipped my items the same day and I had them 2 days later. Truly top drawer!!! 30138

This carrier has been a great asset on multiple family road trips over the past year. It's easy to attach to my van, and it's easy to strap cargo on it. The only con is that the pin and clip are difficult to get in and out, making it hard to open the carrier and fold it back up. 266674

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


  • What is the Best Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for My 2012 Ford Edge Crossover
  • The hitch mounted cargo carrier that is selected most by our customers that have a 2012 Ford Edge, is the Pro Series 24 x 60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153. This carrier is not a folding style carrier like the one you referenced though, but does have a larger platform and cutouts to insert taillights, like part # 98174LED, if the cargo you will be carrying might cover the vehicle taillights. If you like the folding option, the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18151, that you referenced is our best...

  • 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.

  • Cargo Carrier Availability That Would Allow Rear Tailgate to Open on Jeep Wrangler
  • You have two choices, you can have a cargo carrier that will clear the rear tire and fold up like part # C18153. Or, you could go with a carrier that sits lower (5-1/2 inches from shank to top of rails), like part # C18151 that does not have any rise built into the shank that could possibly allow the rear tailgate to open. You would need to measure from the top of the hitch opening to the bottom of the rear tailgate door. If that dimension is more than 5-1/2 inches then this carrier...

  • 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...

  • Straps or Tie Down Recommendations for Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • For tie downs on Curt cargo carrier # C18151 you can't go wrong with the versatility of bungee cords, # 9008600. This set comes with 12 bungees. You can never have too many bungees. Another useful tie down method is to use a cargo net such as # C18202. But it really depends on the cargo on the carrier. For something more rigid I would go with a couple of retractable ratchet straps # 34414.

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter With Dual Receivers To Carry Bike Rack And Cargo Carrier
  • When an adapter like part # MT70070 is used in your trailer hitch it does reduce the trailer hitch weight capacity by 50 percent. With that being said, the # MT70070 can be used for a bike rack and a cargo basket as you mentioned. The Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR, will work in the upper or lower receiver of the adapter. This is a 4-bike carrier with anti-sway cradles and a tilting feature that will tilt when empty to give you access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle....

  • How To Secure A Cooler To A Cargo Carrier
  • I have two options that will allow for you to securely attach a cooler to your Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18151. You can choose from either a cargo net or a set of cambuckle ratchet straps. A cargo net such as the Curt Stretchable Cargo Net part # C18202 will allow for you to secure a much larger variety of items under the net in comparison to a cambuckle system. The cargo net is specifically designed to work with your cargo carrier and will work well to secure your cooler. The most...

  • Height Comparison of Curt Cargo Carriers # C18151 and # C18153
  • The bent shank on the Curt # C18153 is indeed going to give you more ground clearance than the straight shank on the # C18151. It will give you 2 inches more of a rise than the # C18151 carrier will. The weight capacity of both cargo carriers is 500lbs so the carrying capacity is the same between racks, but what makes the difference is that the angled shank elevates the platform for better ground clearance and easier loading. The # C18153 also has a slightly larger platform compared...

  • Comparing Curt Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers # 18151 and # 18153
  • The only difference between the 20x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # C18151 and # C18153 is a shank rise of 2 inches on the latter and the slight difference in dimension with one being 24 inches wide versus 20 inches. The inner and outer dimensions of each are something to note as they both round their measurements for the roughly 60 inch length and their declared width.

  • Weight of Curt Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier 18153 and 18151

Carrier # C18151 has a shipping weight of 58 pounds so 55 pounds for the carrier. Someone would have to come along with a couple of wrenches to steel the trailer portion because it swivels up or down on a bolt. But then they would just have this heavy tray to lug around and wouldn't be able to use it in a vehicle because the tray...

  • Will The Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier # C18151 Fit My 2011 Honda Pilot Touring
  • I walked out to our store and pulled the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier, part # C18151. I then installed it on a 2011 Honda Pilot. The cargo carrier fits great on the Pilot and folds up without interfering with the bumper. The carrier is not wide enough to sit in front of the rear tail lights. If it were mounted on another vehicle, the carrier has a mesh base, so when folded up, the tail lights will still shine through. For a tight fit of the carrier inside your hitch and to reduce noise...

  • Can CURT 20x60 Cargo Carrier # C18151 Work on 1-1/4 Inch Hitch With 1-1/4 To 2 Inch Hitch Adapter
  • You can use the CURT 20x60 Folding Cargo Carrier, part # C18151, with a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch hitch adapter on your 2011 GMC Terrain, but you will need to remember that when using the hitch adapter on your hitch it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. If you have a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch on your GMC Terrain the tongue weight capacity is 300 lbs. Using the hitch adapter will reduce that to 150 lbs. So, after adding 70 lbs for the weight of the cargo carrier...
