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.

Carrier fits on van perfectly. Price spot on. Quality is good and assembly was simple. This carrier will solve storage issues as I travel and will allow me to haul items that I do not want to put inside. Also ordered the carrier bag which will keep items out of the elements. Together I am very happy with both. I will continue ordering from etrailer as I am very happy with quality, pricing and delivery. 605749

The 20x59 inch Curt cargo carrier works well for my Dodge minivan. The $132 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. 623226

You guys/gals are the best!! First of all amazing prices! Second, it was delivered when it said it was going be delivered. Third awesome customer service! I was putting it together and I over tighten one of the small bolts and broke in half. I emailed them to see how I can get an extra one. 10 minutes later Becky calls me and tells me that it's on it's way at no charge. I would give this overall experience 6 stars if possible. Once again, Thanks Becky for the quick follow up. 606351

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

We just used the carrier this past week. Worked perfectly and served the purpose.

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.

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

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

-Sustains 1. Quality 2. Durability 3. Functionality -Improves 1.None that I can think of at this moment! I was in a pinch and needed a "hauler" yesterday. Searched the interweb and came upon etrailer.com. Located a possible solution to our situation (Curt Cargo Carrier) and the rest is history. Cost efficient and quite simple to place in to operation. She stayed behind us for 800+ miles and never made a noise. To be honest I forgot during periods of the trip that she was even back there. All kidding aside fantastic product. Light, fast, and strong! 542548

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

Still working great..used a number of times

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I was told this Cargo Carrier was the best option for my Honda Odyssey. I tried to go on vacation and as soon as I left the driveway realized it was dragging the ground. This product was not made for a Honda Odyssey. I would not recommend it for any low profile vehicles. 500935

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. 639475

Great, simply great! It was delivered fast and putting it together was easy. Once installed in the hitch it provides enough clearance (loaded) to open the rear hatch.

A very substantial item. Well designed and constructed. If anything, it is heavy and a bit cumbersome to install in receiver. One other note is that the hitch pin barely clears the receiver hole and clip does not fit easily. I had to buy another longer Curt hitch pin to accommodate the short length. Surprising that the hitch and cargo carrier are both made by Curt but the pin is a bit too short. 557619

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.

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

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

Fast delivery! My 10 year old son wanted to help. He ended up putting it together while I supervised. 25 minutes to assemble. We will use to free up space in our 09 Forester for a road trip. 417948

Just got back from 8 days of traveling, using this product. I really liked that it gave you room to be able to open hatch with no problems of clearance issues, while loaded. 412256

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Comparing Curt Hitch Cargo Carriers C18151 and C18153
  • Both of the Curt hitch-mount folding cargo carriers # C18151 and # C18153 fit in a 2-inch hitch and offer a 500-lb loaded cargo weight capacity. The primary differences are the carriers' weights and the type of shank on the carriers. Part # C18151 has a shipping weight of 58-lbs while # C18153 has a 70-lb shipping weight due to slightly beefier construction. It also has an angled shank that provides 2-inches of additional ground clearance, which is a good thing if you have to pull into...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2015 Lexus RX 350
  • There really isn't a great way to accomplish what you are trying to do. The dual hitch receivers like the part # D-192 cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent and add quite a bit of leverage to the hitch. I really wouldn't recommend going this route. A better choice would be the # HR1400Z-85-FB which has a bike rack and a cargo carrier behind it. As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2015 Lexus RX 350 like the part # C13143 you would be good.

  • Solutions for a Cargo Carrier to Transport Golf Clubs and Other Items
  • The best option for you to carry your gear is the Curt Folding Carrier # C18151 that you mentioned. A bike rack would not be able to be mounted to the Curt carrier, but that option does exist in the form of the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack # HR1450Z and adding the Hollywood Racks Hitch Cargo Carrier for Sport Rider SE Bike Rack # HR1485. You would not want to use a propane tank cover for your golf clubs. What I recommend is using a large water resistant cargo bag such as the...

  • 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...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2019 Kia Sorento
  • The hitch I recommend for your 2019 Kia Sorento is the 2-inch model # E98843 which I prefer over the Draw-Tite # 75908 because of its higher weight capacity and because it is USA-made. This model also has a nicer matte black powder coat finish that is more discrete in appearance than the glossy finish on the Draw-Tite. All required mounting hardware comes with the hitch and you can see it installed on a Sorento in the photo I linked for you. I also linked the written instructions, a...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • A super popular hitch cargo carrier that would work well on your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the part # C18151. I attached a demo video that shows the carrier being used on a similar 2015 Grand Cherokee. Then for a bag to fit the carrier the Rola part # 59102 would be an excellent option. If you need a trailer hitch you would want the part # 75699 which is a confirmed fit.

  • 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,...

  • Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2012 Honda Pilot
  • You will have to bolt together the Pro Series cargo carrier. The 2 sides of the platform bolt together and bolt to the shank. I have linked the installation instructions for you. I have also included a link to an assembly video. There are 3 main pieces and it does not take very long to install. This carrier does not fold. Any of the trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers that fold will require at least some assembly. The most popular is # C18151. I have included a link to the installation...

  • Solution to Carry Cargo Carrier While Towing Trailer
  • We have a similar solution that would work well, but it's not exactly what you mentioned. What you'd want is the part # D210 which gives you a ball mount that has a hitch opening above it so that you can mount a cargo carrier like the Curt # C18153 in the opening and then tow a trailer with the ball mount below. Other option is the Cargo Carrier Bunk for A-Frame Trailers # CC-255 which attaches to the a-frame of a trailer and gives a platform that you could put cargo on. I attached a...

  • Comparison of Curt Hitch Cargo Carriers # C18153 and # C18151
  • There are a few differences between the two Curt hitch-mount cargo carriers you referenced, parts # C18153 and # C18151 (the new part number that replaces the 18131). Thank you for the photo. The # C18153 is slightly larger at 24 x 60 than the other which is 20 x 60-inches. It also has an angled shank to provide 2-inches more ground clearance at the rear of the carrier. The # C18153 also provides more clearance from the hitch pin hole on your receiver: 9-inches when folded up and 19-inches...

  • Availability of Folding Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • All of the 1-1/4 inch hitch mounted cargo carriers we have available do feature a fixed shank that won't allow the carrier to tilt up to a folded position when not in use. With this in mind your only option to install a tilting cargo carrier on your hitch will indeed be to use a 2 inch model like the Curt 20x59 # C18151 with a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch adapter like the Brophy # HTAD. It is important to note though that using this or any other hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity...

  • Recommended Class III Hitch for 2018 Subaru Forester for Hitch Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack
  • For your 2018 Forester we do have both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches from several makers. We always recommend the larger and higher weight capacity Class III hitch when the option exists because this size offers broader compatibility with hitch accessories and does not cost much more than the Class II models. Installation on your Forester will be pretty much identical regardless of hitch class or brand so you might as well get the most for your money. The hitch I recommend...
