Worked like a charm. I was skeptical about using this, as I’d never seen one before. On the trip to Florida, I did see multiple other vehicles with racks.

This carrier was super easy to assemble. It is a bit heavy but I was able to mount it onto my hitch alone. I’m using an anti-rattle lock and they work great together.

Lost my truck recently and needed a way to take in recycling without stinking-up the SUV. Cargo carrier assembled easy and worked great on the first trash run. Flipped-up perfectly for the follow-on shopping trip.

Installation: Easy Assembly: Easy Attached to: Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # C13163 Use: Camping equipment. Cooler, Chairs, Sleeping bags, firewood, etc. Like: The fact that it folds is a huge positive. What I would change: perhaps adding a ring or two on the sides to allow for bungee cords or rope. Because the hitch is already a bit low on the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander (stock wheels, tires, suspension) the back part of the basket can bottom out rather easily. It has nothing to do with the carrier itself though. I would definitely recommend this product! I'm going to use it again in a month for our next camping trip.

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.

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

This is my second purchase of this. The first one saved my family from potential jury. We got rear-ended in traffic last year and the carrier sides folded in like a triangle. Our vehicle and passengers were unharmed. The vehicle that hit us totaled their front end. No injuries. I was able to drive home with my gear still ok in the mangled carrier. etrailer is the only trusted site I would purchase from. I purchased and installed a trailer hitch with the help of their video tutorial. The people here are amazing at what they do and you can tell the care deeply about it too.

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

Pros: - 6 hour trip two ways and no major issues. - Fits well on Jeep Grand Cherokee Cons: - Multiple build issues. The first issue was there was slag inside of the bar that the other side was supposed to fit into, which made it impossible to put together. I had to buy a metal file small enough to fit in there and file away for 15 minutes to get it to fit. - One of the upright flat panels that you bolt the other panel to to connect the sides was missing 95% of its weld, there was just a dot instead of a weld all the way across it. - After the whole thing was put together there were gaps in the cross bars where they should have been flush. No matter how I tweaked the bolt tightening they wouldn’t go straight together. I would have returned it but I was leaving on my trip the day after I got it so I had to make it work. And the box was destroyed. Spend the money to get a higher quality carrier.



- C18151
by:

I have yet to use this for hauling anything, but the assembly was very simple, and the construction seems quite solid. It does stick out a long ways to the back (with a fairly large gap between the bumper and the carrier), but that's to facilitate the flip-up nature of it. Also, it makes for plenty of clearance for the lift-gate to open up, and there's even room to stand between the carrier and the trunk for easier access.

The 20x59 inch Curt cargo carrier works well for my Dodge minivan. The price was very reasonable and construction seems durable and heavy. Assembly was not difficult. It can be installed on the van by one person, but definitely easier with two. I got the 2inch hitch version. I can fit two 35 gallon trash cans in it, plus a smaller can, with room to fit misc trash. I can also fit two 22 inch walk behind mowers on it, with gas and string trimmer. I can fit about 5 buckets of sand in the winter, 5 gal each, chainsaws, tools, gas, oil, anything you wouldn’t want inside the vehicle. I’ve had this for about a year and it continues to be a very helpful accessory.

Excellent product very well built and holds more than you would think. Surprisingly stable even with a heavy load as long as it is distributed equally. The folding capability is key when you're on vacation at your destination and want to drive around and park without it sticking out. Definitely suited our needs and holding up well even with repeated use and exposure to salt air and water. Highly recommend if you need extra carbon space for vacation trips.

I could not use the cargo carrier on my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited because when I opened the rear door it would hit the carrier and we could not access the back end without taking the carrier off. No one told me at etrailer the carrier would not work.


Comments
Unfortunately this can sometimes happen with side-opening rear hatches. To help determine if your vehicle will make contact, this carrier will come straight out from the hitch receiver and the sidewalls measure 5-58 inches tall. When folded down, the closes part of the cargo basket is 19 inches out from the center of the hitch pin hole.

Item shipped very quickly and arrived in a few days. Instructions came wrapped in plastic sheet to keep them intact and readable. I am not very mechanically inclined, but the assembly took less than 10 minutes and was easy. High quality heavy duty rack with powder coated finish. I’m glad I spent extra on the fold up when not in use feature as my last rack did not have this. Very pleased with this purchase

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.

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.

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.



- C18151

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.

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.

    It is very common to see the 23x59 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # C18151 mounted on the rear of motorhomes using the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 which is rated for a gross trailer weight of 3500 lbs. and 350 lbs.of tongue weight.

  • Available Class II Hitch Cargo Carriers for 1-1/4-Inch Hitches
    The hitch cargo carriers made for 1-1/4-inch Class I and Class II hitch receivers will usually not be the folding type. The reason is that any folding/hinge mechanism will introduce a point of weakness in the carrier's structure, as compared to a fixed carrier without a hinge.

  • Parts Needed to Add Light Kit to Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151
    What I recommend for Curt cargo carrier # C18151 is light kit # 20174. To mount the lights you will also need 2 of bracket # BK70BB. You can use self-tapping screws to secure the brackets to the top, rear rail of the carrier. This set up is the most cost effective option. It would plug into a 4-way trailer wiring connector.

    You could pretty easily attach your license plate to the mesh flooring of the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18151 by using zip ties so that it would be visible when folded up. In the folded up position the taillights should still be visible if they were behind the cargo carrier since the flooring is mesh and would not block the lights.
