Video Transcript for Curt Cargo Carrier Review

Today, we'll be taking a quick look at the 24 x 60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part number C18153. A couple new things about this cargo basket is you can see it has the ability to fold up or tilt up closer towards to the rear of the vehicle. This allows for a compact storage and also reduces the length added to the vehicle, so if you wanted to keep the cargo basket installed onto your vehicle and pull right into your garage, it's just going to prevent you from having to take it on and off to pull into your garage. The rack can easily be folded down by removing the 5/8 inch pin and clip, here at the base of the basket and tilt it down. I'll just replace the pin and clip here. Now, the hitch pin and clip are sold separately. Now, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it.

With the carrier fold it up, we'll simply slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch. We'll then need to line up the pinhole in the shank of our carrier with the pinhole in our hitch. Once we get the pinholes lined up, we'll then insert our pin into the pinholes and then secure it with a clip on the other side. It fits in 2 inch x 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, has a weight capacity of 500 pounds and comes with a limited one-year warranty. This hitch mounted cargo basket allows you to carry extra cargo on the outside of your vehicle freeing up passenger space on the inside of your car. You can see it has a nice metal mesh flooring at the base of the basket which allows you to carry wet, dirty, muddy gear and it is going to allow that mud and water and snow to drip out and dry out for year. It has the nice raised containment walls, just going to help keep all of your gear nice and contained.

You can see it, it also has the reflectors on three sides of the basket just to protect your gear and other drivers while you're out on the road. You can see the shank of the basket, has a nice rise here and this angled shank allows the bottom of the basket to be lifted up higher giving you more ground clearance especially if you're taking it out on rugged terrain. You don't want the bottom of your basket to be bottoming up. Now, we'll go ahead and load up some gear. Now that we have all of our gear loaded up and secure, we'll go ahead and take it out on a slalom course and then our bump course and show you how it performs. That will complete today's review of the 24 x 60 Folding Curt Cargo Carrier, part number C18153. .

Purchased this to go on a 2015 Toyota 4Runner. From the Unboxing everything went well. 11 Bolts to put this beast together, if you have help allow them to help you because on the top frame when you mount the two baskets to the center frame it can kind of be aggravating by yourself. I put this thing together by myself in about 20 minutes with zero urgency of getting it done so it could be done quicker. Overall my first impression of this thing is well-built, nice weight, great black finish, and its heavy but not to heavy. I have severe back problems and I can still lift it and put it in the hitch. I have not field tested it yet but will be shortly for a trip to Florida and once that is completed I will update my review with a Field Test. I honestly want to give this thing 5 stars I really do. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it seems when they measured and cut the hole for the hitch pin they didn't measure it when the whole weight of the basket was pushing down on the square tube going into the receiver hitch, now with that being said all I had to do was pull up on the furthest part of the basket and the Hitch Pin went in. Now also with that being said I haven't read any issue of that on any other reviews before I purchased this thing and trust me I went through almost all of the reviews (just how I am) so might just be a small defect and would no way deter me from buying one again. I am beyond happy with the purchase so far and would buy it again every time If i needed to. Im not some paid spokesperson and no one coerced me into doing this. I just believe that If real people are buying this product then real people need to review it. Again I love the Carrier so far and once I field test it I will update my review. Thanks Ya'll 442246

I needed extra cargo hauling capacity and was considering a roof top carrier. After some research (finding out I couldn't park the vehicle in my garage because of the height with the carrier mounted on top of the vehicle) I recently purchased a 24" X 60" Curt folding cargo carrier for my 2014 GMC Acadia. It pleasantly arrived before promised. It is of highest quality. It easily attaches to the vehicle with a little effort. (weighs around 70 lbs.) It is very solid and looks good on the vehicle. One feature I really like is when not in use the carrier will fold 90 degree's to the back of the vehicle which allows easy parking and will fit in my garage. The other feature is ease of loading cargo onto the carrier. It is bumper height and not on top of the vehicle. I am 6'-3" tall and would still have issues reaching the carrier on top of the vehicle. I frequently am going to the home improvement store and nursery for garden items. Now, instead of having to worry about getting the cargo area in back of the vehicle dirty, I can load it onto the fold down carrier. I did just recently use it as a cargo extender. I purchased some 12 foot 2x4's. Usually I could get an 8 foot 2X4 in the truck with a little overhang. the 12' fit nicely from the back of the truck onto the top of the carrier on securely tied down to the top of the carrier. This was an accidental discovery and one more use for the carrier. We often go to the mountains which is 20 minutes from our home to cook dinner or breakfast. It will be very nice to put fire wood, coolers and chairs and still retain the third row seating in the vehicle. Overall all this is a high quality, very well priced option for increasing the cargo capacity of your vehicle. It was 1/5th the cost of a roof top carrier, ( Yakima of Thule) easy to load, and you have unlimited height for cargo verses a roof top carrier. Also depending on the height of what you are putting on the carrier you can open the lift gate on the vehicle. 262815

I recently ordered this item from etrailer.com and had no trouble at all deciding and ordering the 24x60 Curt Cargo carrier model C18153. After browsing through the options, I decided on this one for several reasons. One being weight capacity. The 500lb capacity is more than enough for anything I would ever need. Two, the diminsions were exactly what I wanted. I wanted one that was wide and deep and this one is one of the larger carriers offered. Third, I want a folding/hinging style. I drive a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and didn't want this sticking out so far all the time. I wanted the option of being able to fold it up for easier parking. When folded, this carrier on my Jeep will fit in any parking space fine without sticking out. This carrier has plenty distance between the bumper and actual carrier so if you need to access the back of your vehicle, you are able to walk/stand in between the carrier and vehicle. Quality should be no concern. This think is rock solid. Unless you are really strong or dont mind hurting yourself, you need two people to help load and unload this thing. It is all metal with very large diameter bolts. I used it for the first time on a trip this past weekend and it was flawless. I did not hear rattling, nor did I sense something was attached to my vehicle. That is almost a negative as you have to remember its even back there so you dont back into something. Overall, I feel like this is money well spent and I have no regrets. This is a top quality carrier that should last a long time. I also bought the etrailer.com Extra Large Cargo Bag 20 cubic feet model 988501 to go with this. I have not used the bag yet but it feels very thick and strong. I got the bag for a few reasons, one being rain and weather, two being road dirt and grime, third being privacy. This bag will keep the water out, dirt off, and also keep people from just walking by and seeing what you have on your carrier. No it wont keep thefts away but it will keep them from seeing what you got which is what I want. I hope this review helps. 184904

Can you open the hatch when its attached?

Bev,Yes and No. On my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, my back hatch will not fully open when the carrier is in the up position. However, when the carrier is in the down position as if you have cargo on it the hatch will fully open.When in the up position, the hatch will open but only about 6-8 inches before it makes contact with the carrier.Also, the window will fully open regardless if the carrier is in the up or down position.

I wanted to take this thing on a couple of trips before I did my review. I LOVE this carrier. It is bigger than most of the ones you see out there. I saw a Chevy Tahoe today with a 19" deep carrier, and it looked ridiculous because it only fit 2 bags on it. Not this one, though. Both times I have used it, we fit a good size ice chest (facing front to back). The first time, we also had luggage for 6 that fit in the waterproof bag (that's another review). The second time we used it, it also held 6 beach chairs, an umbrella, canopy, large blanket, beach bag, 2 metal detectors (hey, the kids think it's fun to find junk), and a long board. There is absolutely no performance difference when towing this thing. I actually forgot it was on there. When we got to the beach, I just unloaded the bag, placed it in the trunk, and tilted the carrier up to park. It works perfectly. So glad I decided to purchase this carrier. It solved our space problem since we downsized from a minivan to a SUV. 266158

I ordered this rack for the back of my 5th wheel to carry things that I might not necessarily want inside the trailer or my pickup. ie a lot of wet muddy clothes that smell like stagnant lake water, or my Sea Eagle inflatable boat or a cooler full of fish. I ordered it after 5:00 p.m. on the 23rd and it arrived at noon on the 26th. I did not pay for expedited shipping. In fact, I did not pay for shipping at all, and still got this 75 lb. item in less than 3 days. But if you have ever purchased from etrailer, you know that that is the type of service you can grow to expect. As far as the item goes, it seems to be exactly what I was looking for. I originally debated between 2 similar racks and could not make up my mind. Mike, at etrailer sent me an email listing what few subtle differences there were. And even though the differences were small, one of them mattered to me. So I appreciated the input. This rack is stout. It has a 500 lb. limit, but I believe it will support every bit of that. It came well packaged. All the nuts and bolts were present. It came with good instructions, although it was a simple assembly. It was attached to my 5th wheel about a half hour after I started the assembly. I could not be happier with my purchase. My thanks to Mike and Erika for the help with selection and for the timely updates on the status of my order. As I told my wife, of all the uncountable places I have shopped online, I have NEVER had the excellent customer service that I get from Etrailer. 176288

I received the carrier yesterday. It arrived on time, packed securely and well packed. It took about 15 minutes to assemble, which was also easy. I haven't used it yet, but I see no problems with the carrier. I also ordered the bag to fit, and it is a great fit. It looks nice to. 177720


Comments

Ive only used the carrier the one time, which was when I bought it. It worked great! It didnt rattle when in use, and being able to be folded up out of the way was great. It also makes it easier to store, as it keeps the profile smaller. I used the e-trailer cargo bag along with it, and it kept everything dry, even while driving through several rain storms at 80 mph. On the way down, I packed items that could get damp, just in case. After that trip, no concerns about either the carrier or the bag. It is plenty strong, and I dont doubt the capacity. It also left enough room to open the tailgate on my Ford Expedition EL, with the cargo bag loaded. I know Ill use it again, its a must with 5 kids.

I ordered this a week ago last Mon. night. It was delivered on Fri. it only took me about 20 min. to put together and install. I used it Sat. & Sun. The cargo carrier worked very well and I am very pleased with the service I received from E- Trailer. I will recommend your company to others. I am a vendor at a local Farmers Market, my tables and coolers fit very nicely on the cargo carrier leaving plenty of room for my products in my SUV. Thank You... 133242

Dennis,How many tables were you able to stack?We use 24 x 48 plastic tables about 2- 1/2 thick.Thanks.Sherry

Sherry J...I use 3-6 tables that fold in half so that would be 6 table thickness, plus my folding chair and my fold out canopy. I also put 1 large cooler or 2 smaller coolers on the hitch packer. I use ratchet type straps to hold everything in place. I have used the hitch packer to haul bags of top soil also. I put 10 bags of the soil, they were 40lb. bags so that is 400 lbs. The hitch packer is rated for 500 lbs. but I did not want to max it out. I have been using it for a month now and have hauled a lot of things with it. I am very happy with it. The nice part is the fold up feature so you do not need to install it every time. I think this was the right purchase as I have read the reviews on similar types that you can get locally but this model had the best reviews and I was very happy with the service from E-Trailer.com. I hope this helps with your decision.

I just returned home from a 9000 mile road trip for the last 30 days. We travelled throughout the western U.S. and I used both the cargo carrier and the cargo bag. I actually strapped an additional bag to the roof of my 2003 Chevy Suburban. The carrier and bags performed flawlessly! I encountered heavy winds, steep climbs on rough roads and heavy rain storms. The content of the bags stayed dry and clean. I went in and out of these bags to retrieve gear multiple times per day and I had no tears in the bags or the straps and no breaks in the zippers. Thank you and I would strongly recommend these products. 221546

Ive used the bags a half dozen more times since my initial road trip use last summer and they are still as good as they were when they were new. Both th carrier and the bags are quality products.

OK first things first I am very happy with my new basket carrier. I purchased this model because of the S curve shank and weight capacity . I haul an atv in the bed of my truck and my tailgate stays down . The design of this carrier with a 19 inch shank allows my gate to lay flat and still gives me ample clearance to load the basket. The rack rides high enough off the ground that it does not bottom out while off road. The first basket carrier that was shipped from etrailer was defective . The locking pin shank mechanism was welded incorrectly and caused the rack to sit at an incorrect angle. I notified etrailer who quickly shipped out a new one and sent me paperwork to ship the defective one back.. The process was relatively painless, the only issue was with UPS taking a long time to deliver. The package was out for delivery from my local UPS several days in a row both days it was returned to the warehouse and a new delivery date was issued . Pretty sure they kept forgetting to put it on the truck . Frustrating but not any fault of etrailer. 430531

Was a smooth process from start to finish. Very impressed on the quality of construction of this cargo carrier. Easy assembly. Feels sturdy on back of my vehicle. Exactly what I needed to carry around the lawnmower, spreader, powerwasher etc. Thank you! 187914

Got this cargo carrier for the back of our Minnie Winnie and it fits great in both positions. Goes together pretty easy, may take two with some steps. Haven't taken it on a long trip yet, but have no concerns. East to install and move by one person. In the up position, I secure it from shaking with a bungie cord to the ladder on the back of my RV. Bought a 48 qt. cooler that fit perfect inside. Only thing, I know it's a heavy metal shipment, but I would say that the carrier could maybe try and handle it a bit easier. My box arrived pretty beat up The mess on the bottom of the carrier was a bit bent. See pictures on the box. 246944

The Curt Cargo Carrier (C18153) that I ordered from etrailer on 12/8/2016 was delivered on time on 12/12/2016 via UPS. The box is in good shape with all the parts stayed intact. It took me about one hour to put everything together without any problem and successfully hooked it onto the Hitch recently I installed on my new Mini-Van. I have not taken it out for the test drive with stuffs on yet since I finished the job late in the evening. I like the product. It seems to be very sturdy with good design. I plan to use it to carry heavy stuffs from Home Depot that I don't want to put them inside the van. I would recommend the product to anyone that needs to have extra space to carry stuffs. Thanks etrailer tor providing good products. I also attached couple pictures showing the hookup onto the van. 324475

OH MY GOODNESS! I used another sight the promised a quicker delivery, and less money. You get what you pay for! I was notified 8 days after I thought I ordered it that "no one can get you it that cheap" and they would charge me $60 more to send it in 2 weeks. WHAT?!? I leave on a trip in 5 days. NEVER FEAR! I found etrailer!!! They got me the carrier in less than 5 days, for a VERY reasonable cost, and we just got back from our week-long vacation. The trailer worked FABULOUSLY, and instead of cramming 2 kids, grandma, one niece and us with our luggage, we were able to put most the luggage on our carrier and have a very easy 6 hour drive. THANK YOU etrailer.com!!!! 145513

Mark G - we never hadsmelled/experienced any issue with that. We drove for around 6 hours, with food coolers and luggage in the carrier, and none of us found any issues. I, personally, am very irritated by exhaust have to keep the car on recirculate when driving and...well...literally, nothing. Weve now moved across the country with it well, it, and a moving van and again, LOVED IT!!!

This cargo carrier is very well constructed and was easy to assemble for two people. We purchased this to have the ability to take a large deck box to Florida from Michigan to have additional storage to transport our golf clubs and other household items we use in Florida. Then to use the deck box for additional storage when in Florida. We also purchased the cargo net item H9500100 to strap the box to the carrier. This has work extremely well. There was no movement and you didn't know it was even in the back of the vehicle. Do to the design of the carrier we can still get into our rear door without removing the carrier even loaded with the deck box on the carrier. Also our tail lights and license plate are still visible. 413945

Super easy to put together and looks great. I placed this on the hitch of my fifth wheel and did have to do some modifications to the spare tire holder to allow it to fold up without rubbing on the carrier. I needed this to carry a small generator while we travel and I wanted the flip up option so we can still back into small spaces at the camp sites if needed. Very happy so far and I recommend the tightening hitch pin that is recommended so there is no wiggle (hitch pin also works great). 189055

Thanks for the reply Bill. Joe if you are interested we do offer RV frame mount hitches, and I have provided a link to those for you. We currently have both bolt on and weld on options depending on your application.

I selected the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier (#C18153) to assist with moving students in/out of college dorms. The carrier was very easy to assemble and attach to the vehicle. I chose the anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock (#63232) to ensure noise was minimized when on the road - works great! I also added a cargo carrier LED light kit with mounting brackets (#98174LED, #BK70BB) and a Hopkins heavy-duty 7-way to 4-wire coiled adapter (#HM47065). As others have commented, the light kit wiring harness is not long enough to reach the vehicle plug. The coiled adapter provided a great solution. Using the eTrailer web site has taken the mystery out of finding cargo moving solutions. 370514

The cargo carrier must have been returned by someone else. It arrived in a damaged box, and the hardware was loose and scattered around at the bottom of the box. While putting it together, I observed that the steel floor grating is torn and twisted at two locations. The hardware set included two (unnecessary) large elastomeric washers and an extra nut that is not nylock. The hardware set also included two hitch pins, but only one hitch pin clip. The parts list says there should only be one hitch pin, but the photo of parts on your web site shows two. The instructions said to torque all bolts to 30 foot pounds, but I guess they don't really mean that. I torqued the two bolts in the mounting coupler, Part #11, and the 3/8" hex bolt squeezed the coupler together a little. Now the carrier doesn't fold very well. I plan to back off that carriage bolt tonight. I put one of the "alien" elastomeric washers in the 5/8" hex bolt assembly, and will have to remove them also. All things considered, I'm not very happy. But don't worry ... I won't send it back. 75065

This is a very good carrier. Paint finish is expensive looking matte black which will look better as it ages. Little tight going in receiver but that is good. I installed an anti rattle device on receiver tube and the carrier did not rattle at all going down my rough driveway. Good ground clearance on my 2008 Durango. I am going to mount a tag holder with light so I do not get a ticket. I purchased this at a discount because it was missing the hardware but got grade 5 bolts, washers and nuts and saved a bunch. It is well worth the retail price though. The only drawback with a folding carrier is that you will have to lower it to open the rear hatch. I have not loaded yet but it will work fine to carry my pressure washer and airless sprayer, and accessories. Unless you have rear camera I would recommend some side extended markers like on a boat trailer so you remember it is back there because you cannot see it otherwise. Easier on your back if you mount tube in the hitch receiver while the carrier is in the raised position. 380290

Overall this product is excellent. The durability and large size makes this the main reason why I rate this as such. I used an anti rattle hitch pin (as I do for all my trailers & bike racks) and bungee cords when in the upright folded position. After driving 125 miles unloaded and back home 125 miles loaded with 150 lbs & clampdowns to hold the cargo, I was amazed that I did not hear any rattling as many products do when attached; especially unloaded. Bungee cords are attached to top rail and tie to my hitch connector area that you usually attach chains to a trailer. For safety, I added directional/brake lights when I purchased from etrailer just to be careful and keep tail riders off my back. I mounted it with plates that clamped together so it did not require any drilling that would void any Mfg. warranty. I would highly recommend this carrier as long as you are not concerned about the weight. I always like things that are constructed strong so the weight is an added benefit for durability over the long hall. 443151

I bought this Cargo Carrier, to use on my 2015 Subaru Forester, when I travel to different festivals, as a Blacksmith, throughout the Southeast. It only took about 30 minutes to assemble, using the included instructions. I love how big this carrier is; it will easily hold all my display tables, my cooler, as well as my canopy tent bag. I also love that it folds up, out of the way, once it's unloaded; makes parking worry free. 351394

I have not had a chance to use the carrier yet, but my initial impressions are very good. Easy to assemble, but definitely easier with two people. Quality looks to be great. Clearance behind my 2005 4Runner is excellent when installed down or folded up. 227118

I have used the carrier a couple of times and plan to for an upcoming trip. Works great. Holds our coolers and other loads easily with plenty of rail space to tie down the gear. I like being able to fold it up out of the way once we get to our destination.

It rained almost our entire trip and the weather proof bag was a life safer!!! We almost went with the weather resistant bag but decided on the weather proof bag at the last minute and were thankful we did. We have an Acadia and purchased the deeper 24" rack. Even though it is heavier and the recommended custom fit bag is taller it paid off for our camping trip. It held a large AND small cooler plus 6 lawn chairs, an extra large tent bag, a folding table, a cooking rack, pans, bedding, 4 air mattresses and other misc bags. We were extremely pleased because it kept everything contained and DRY! The rack and bag are both extremely durable and we will use this every time we take a long trip to save leg room inside the vehicle. We have used a roof rack in the past and items are much easier to access on the back rack when making pit stops along the way. Can't wait to use it for our next "regular" long distance trip to store luggage and souvenirs instead of camping supplies. 287887

This is our second purchase from this company and we could not be more pleased with the items purchased. We first purchased the Draw-Tite Max frame trailer hitch, item #75679. The purchase was simple and the video was of great help when it came to installing. We pulled a U-Haul with our Ford Flex to move our daughter to college and it could not have worked out better. The hitch was solid and we love the way it is tucked out of the way to save on the shins when loading or unloading. We were so pleased, that when we returned, we purchased the fold away cargo carrier that was recommended as well. We have no doubt it will work great to have the extra room available in the car for trips. The shipping on both items were super fast and we highly recommend this company to everyone that is in the market for great quality and service. We look forward to passing along to our friends and family high recommendations as well. Thank you e-trailer.com. 217515

I purchased this carrier for our RV. It won't fold all the way up to install the pin because of the ladder on the back of the RV. The quality of this carrier is excellent. I highly recommend this over the ones they sell at Wal-mart. My brother in law has one from WallyWorld and this one is much better. It is very easy to fold up also. 196661

I have a 2013 Chevy Traverse and 3 kids in booster seats and teenager, so I needed additional cargo room. I bought this cargo carrier along with the weather-resistant carrier bag that fits perfectly. I also bought a trailer light kit, all from E-trailer. The directions for each item were clear and easily understood. I used all items during a trip to Columbus, OH from Iowa and everything worked perfectly! Zero problems and I noticed no impact on fuel economy. After getting to our destination, I unloaded the cargo carrier and folded it 90 degrees up and drove around town - very convenient feature! Spend the little extra money and get the fold-up version. Get the cargo bag as well! Very durable! Also, the customer service and delivery Etrailer has was spectacular! Everything was shipped in a timely manner and received with no issues. Will recommend to everyone I meet! Thanks Etrailer!!! 353662

Bought the trailer to use on a 2004 Toyota Sienna van for a trip from North Carolina to Yellowstone. Drove over 5,500 miles with it. It worked great! My wife and I wondered why we didn't think of this sooner since we have 4 kids and are normally traveling very cramped. Because the Sienna sits low to the ground you have to be careful going over speed bumps or entering driveways that have dips. Need to go at an angle so that carrier doesn't drag the ground. Otherwise, no issues. We also bought the cargo bag with mounting straps made specifically for this carrier. Best $** we ever spent. I had originally planned to use a tarp to cover our luggage on the carrier but I happened to see this item on the Etrailer website. We packed 4 large suitcases and several duffle bags in this cargo bag with no problems. Very durable and weatherproof. We were very pleased with everything we purchased. 264057

I just got the cargo carrier along with two sets of bike rack adapters (part CC-125). Both came very quickly and was a breeze to put together. Only took about an hour (including setting up the bike rack adapters) for my two daughter (5 and 7) and I. Probably would have taken less alone, but they wanted to help. Seems very sturdy and as described in listing. I had no problem getting three bikes to fit after I removed the front wheel of mine and used a fork mount (which I knew I was going to do as my bike's wheel base is greater than the 60" carrier). All worked as planned though. I took it for a quick ride to Target and it held up perfectly. I will try to update you after my 800+ mile round trip to the NC coast next week. Hope to upgrade to an excellent rating after that. I just have not used it yet and want to reserve that rating for after some trips and the hunting season. 215724

When we had our second child our Subaru Outback got that much smaller. It was either buy a larger vehicle or do something to increase our ability to haul stuff, especially when going on vacation. I decided to get this cargo carrier and let me say it absolutely does the job. I actually purchased a different one first, through Amazon, and I immediately sent it back and got this one because the first one not have the folding feature. That is KEY. Without that I wouldn't be able to park while on vacation without requiring more than one parking space (or I'd have to remove the whole thing which is not always possible). At any rate, this thing rocks! Highly recommend. 316923

The carrier came faster than I expected which was great as I needed it right away. Like others have said, the box was very beat up but everything was intact. If any scratches happened during shipping, I didn't really notice them or care since this will be on the back of my SUV. I needed this to transport a large dog kennel across a few states and back and it worked perfectly. It was very easy to use a few ratchet tie downs to hold it in place. The carrier bounced around a bit more than I would have liked from the fit in the receiver but it was never a problem during transport. I liked how wide this was and it was very well priced for one that also folds up. 49165

Ordered my cargo carrier on Friday afternoon and it was delivered on Tuesday. Fast shipping. Was easy to put together and works like a charm. I marked the receiver with finger nail polish so I could line up the pin hole by myself. I installed this on a 2015 Honda CR-V. With the carrier in the up position, you can't open the hatch, but that's not a big deal. The carrier shimmies a little but it is well built and isn't a problem. 247367

This is a sturdy, well made product that can hold a lot of stuff. I bought this for my wife's truck (2012 Lexus GX460) to take all our gear to the beach for vacation with the kids. I like the fact that when the trailer is empty, there is just enough clearance to open the back lift gate without having to remove the trailer. I also like that it folds up quite easily to make parking easier without having to remove it entirely (although it adds to the amount of room you need to park). I also purchased the trailer hitch and locking pin, which I recommend. I was pretty sure what I needed based on the website, but called customer service to be certain. They were very knowledgeable, answered all my questions and ensured that I had the right hitch, etc. I would recommend this to anyone who needs some extra carrying capacity. 410325

The C18153 performed flawlessly on our trip from NJ to FL. I chose this model because the exhaust on my Ford Flex is right in line with my hitch and the offset allowed my cargo to sit 2-3 inches above the exhaust to avoid any additional heat. The tray also sat far enough out so that I could open my back hatch without any interference of about 24" (height) of cargo. The fold up is a nice feature too. The modifications I made were the addition of a lighting kit from Tractor Supply and I plugged up all openings in the tube steel with duct seal to prevent the invitation of corrosion from the weather we experienced. I also drilled and tapped it for my license plate so that it was visible. I would definitely recommend this carrier. Service was great as well with shipment tracking. Arrived a day earlier than promised. Thank you. 423150

The 24" 60" Curt Folding Cargo Carrier is large, heavy, and well-designed and manufactured. It required some straightforward assembly (about 1 hour). Metric or adjustable wrenches are required. Hardware is high quality. Nuts are Nyloc (nylon insert lock nuts). Several strips of red reflective tape are pre-applied, but I added more (highly reflective white SOLAS tape), since the rack protrudes far from the back of my truck, and I wouldn't want someone to hit (or be hit by) it. The included free delivery was quick (3 business days plus a weekend). We'll use it this weekend, and I have confidence it will serve its intended purpose. The 24" deep version will carry one or more normal large coolers oriented front-to-back. An excellent way to increase the capacity of a mid-size SUV. I'm happy with the purchase. 203949

Had this product for about a year and hauled many different types of cargo from vacation supplies to heavy equipment. Overall a pretty solid carrier, love the different options for tying cargo down because of the raised & open walls. The biggest issue I have with the carrier (and the reason I gave it 3/5 stars) is the mesh floor. If you are carrying a very heavy item 250+ lbs that doesn't have a flat bottom (i.e. doesn't span the horizontal metal supports) the mesh floor dips/bends significantly. In some instances when I've carried a heavy item with legs, the legs created bends so bad in the floor that I had to bang them out with a hammer. I solved this problem by cutting a piece of 3/4" plywood to lay in the carrier but I would not have needed to do this if the floor was stronger. 250923

I purchased this to bring luggage and gifts to Florida for Christmas. We traveled from NY and the carrier worked well. It is a bit heavy and we didn't use the fold up option but it was much roomier than we anticipated (which was great!) Assembly was not difficult but one of the pieces was very slightly bent making it difficult to link one side to the other.... a little light hammering fixed it. The heavy duty plastic of the cargo bag (purchased separately) was sturdy and very secure but was not watertight. All of my clothes in a suitcase were soaked. As I drive a Wrangler I also appreciated the clearance allowing me to use the carrier in addition to a spare tire. I would definitely recommend this product. 111923

This cargo carrier was very easy to put together and it is sturdy. We use this every vacation and also when we are driving our kids back to college. It really gives you that extra capacity you need. I also have a cargo bag (secured to the roof rack) that I use on occasion. The thing I don't like about the bag and putting things on the roof in general is, that it creates a lot more wind resistance (gas mileage decreases), you can't put nearly as much weight on the roof, and access to whatever you have in the bag is a bit more difficult than with the cargo carrier. The cargo carrier does fold up so that when it is empty and you have to park, it is not jutting out from your parking space. 268268

This rack was exactly what I expected, and saved our lives space wise on our trip back from Florida. We've always driven with everything crammed in the SUV with us, BUT NO MORE. We purchased 6 plastic bins that fit the rack perfectly and some ratcheting tie downs to keep the load secure. Everything traveled home in the bins without worry. I was expecting extra bounce or the feeling of being back heavy when this rack was on, but it isn't noticeable. One tip, I felt uncomfortable with the rack being black, so we purchased some extra reflective tape for the sides and corners to make it more visible when parked. It assembled without a glitch and in under 15 minutes. I highly recommend! 122369

Product came as expected. I put it together myself and it was very easy. What I like about this model, which is the fold up one, is that there is enough room for me to stand between the back of my van and the cargo carrier. I use my van to haul my dogs to dog events. I will use the carrier for kennels and expens but need to be able to get at the dogs without having to remove the carrier. I also like this model because it is deep enough to be able to lay my 24" wide expens down in the carrier. Most carriers are only 20". Once I get to the events and unload, I will be able to fold the carrier up to get it out of the way. I think it will be perfect for what I need. Can't wait to try it out. 180612

  • Choosing Between Surco # 52018F and Curt # C18153 Folding 24x60 Cargo Carriers
  • Actually, there's very little difference between the two. Both have the same dimensions as well as the same 500 lb capacity (limited by the capacity of your hitch, of course). The Curt # C18153 has the advantage of being seriously less expensive, plus the shank is a bit longer, offering more clearance between the vehicle and the basket when it's folded up (9 inches for the Curt versus 5 inches for the Surco. The Surco has a purpose-built taillight kit, part # 52014 while for the Curt,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ford Edge Sport
  • For your 2016 Ford Edge Sport I recommend the 2-inch Class III hitch option over the 1-1/4-inch Class II since it will give you a better safety margin for handling the weight of your chosen bike rack and bikes. For that you would want the part # 75234. Plus a 2-inch hitch will be able to work with more accessory items, such as a cargo carrier like # C18153, in case that is ever in your future plans. Considering the small price difference, a Class III hitch like # 75234 is usually the...

  • LED Tail Light Kit for a Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • Since there isn't a specific light kit that will fit the Curt carrier # C18153, what you will need to do is use a light kit like # 98174LED, and then add 2 brackets part # BK70BB as they work with 6-1/2 inch oval lights. You will also need some self-tapping screws # FA1131822, or drill and use the hardware of your choice to mount the brackets. Also, ensure that your 2015 Subaru Forester has a 4-Way trailer connector to plug the light kit # 98174LED into. If you need to add trailer wiring,...

  • Selecting Folding vs. Fixed Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier
  • The Curt Folding Cargo Carrier # C18153 provides a folding function thanks to the hinge mechanism in its 2-inch shank (please refer to the photo I linked for you). This is an integral part of the carrier and it cannot be removed. The center-positioned square bar that is visible at the rear edge of the carrier is not equivalent in strength to the shank, and while it does resemble a receiver opening on a hitch it cannot be used to mount the carrier in a hitch nor for any other type of hitch...

  • Surco Cargo Carrier # 52018F vs. CURT Cargo Carrier # C18153
  • The first thing I would do to determine which fold-able cargo carrier would be the best for you would be to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin on your vehicle out to the furthest point our of the rear bumper. This measurement will tell you which cargo carriers will be able to be folded up once installed on your hitch. The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 has a distance of 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin out to the nearest portion of the carrier when folded up....

  • Comparing the Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier # C18153 and the Surco 24x60 Cargo Carrier # 52018F
  • The Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18153, and the Surco Cargo Carrier, # 52018F, are both folding cargo carriers with 24 inch x 60 inch steel mesh platforms and raised side rails. They also have the same weight capacity and dimensions. The main differences between these cargo carriers is bumper clearance. When folded, the Surco carrier measures 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier. The Curt carrier measures 9 inches. Curt and Surco both produce quality...

  • How Much Weight Can Be Loaded in Cargo Carrier on 2015 Wrangler Unlimited w/ Class III Hitch
  • If the hitch in on your Wrangler Unlimited has a 350 lb tongue weight capacity, it means that no more than 350 lbs can be safely suspended from the receiver. The weight of the carrier would be included in that 350 lb figure. If the carrier is used with an extender like part # HES6, the tongue weight capacity of the hitch would be reduced by 50 percent. The further the load is moved away from the receiver, the more leverage is exerted. If this leverage becomes too great, the hitch receiver...

  • Difference Between Curt and Pro Series 24 by 60 Cargo Carriers
  • The Curt carrier part # C18153 is about 10 lbs heavier than the Pro Series part # 63153 that you referenced because it can fold up when not in use unlike the Pro Series. The biggest advantage to the Pro Series is tha you can install a light kit like the part # 98174LED pretty easily. However, most people tend to like the folding carriers so the Curt would most likely be the one you would like more.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier For Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • The bumper mounted spare tire does pose a problem for a cargo carrier. We do offer a cargo carrier that has the clearance you need. I recommend the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18153. You will not be able to fold this carrier up because of your spare tire, but this carrier has a distance of 19-inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier when folded down. This carrier weighs 70-lbs, and the inside dimension are 60-1/8 inches wide x 23-2/4 inches deep...

  • Factors that Contribute to Exhaust Melting Hitch Cargo Carrier
  • Exhaust melting cargo on a cargo carrier isn't a super common problem, but we are aware that it does happen on occasion. Especially if the cargo carrier is at the same height as the exhaust, relatively close to it, and/or the material in the carrier is susceptible to melting. Other factors to consider are the size of the engine, climate, and road conditions. Engines are basically big air pumps. The bigger the motor the more hot air is pumped out of it. Hotter climates will also allow...

  • Hitch, Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag Recommendations for 2015 Acura MDX
  • You've already got a pretty good line on what you're needing! The Draw-Tite # 75225 Class III trailer hitch you mentioned would work great. The Curt # C18153 cargo carrier you mentioned is one of our best sellers, it would be fully compatible with both the hitch and your vehicle. The folding portion is integral to the carrier, it isn't removable. The # 988501 cargo bag is exactly what I'd recommend to keep road grime and rain from damaging your cargo. For safety's sake, I always recommend...

  • Measurements of the CURT 24x60 Inch Trailer Hitch Mount Folding Cargo Carrier
  • I went out to the warehouse and assembled a CURT 24x60 Folding Cargo Carrier, # C18153, to take some measurements. When in the folded down position, it measures 19 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest edge of the carrier. When folded up, it measures 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. It is 8-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole center to the bracket where the basket pivots.

  • Difference Between the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18153 and C18132
  • Actually the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 that you referenced is the new cargo carrier that replaces the C18132 that you also referenced. The biggest upgrade and difference is the shank of the cargo carrier now has a 2 inch rise, whereas before it was a straight shank without a rise. I attached review videos for both carriers for you to see the difference.

  • Comparing Curt, Pro Series, and Surco Trailer Hitch Cargo Carriers for a 2002 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt cargo carrier # C18153, is the only one of the 3 that can fold up. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier is 9 inches when folded and 19 inches when in the down position. It fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver hitch only and has a 500 pound capacity. The slight rise in the shank provides a little better ground clearance. This is the best all around carrier for your 2002 Honda Odyssey. Pro Series carrier # 63153 does not fold up but has more...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier that Can Fold to Carry a Lawn Mower on a 2013 Toyota RAV4
  • First, if I can address the lawn mower, it would be a tight fit. There are other carriers that might be a better option as far as fitting the lawn mower and ease of loading. For the fit when folded you will need to look at the distance from the center of your hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. When folded the carrier is 3 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole so your measurement would have to be less than that for it to fit. You...

  • Extra Large Cargo Bag Compatiblity with Curt Hitch Mounted Folding Cargo Carrier 24 by 60
  • The Extra Large Cargo Bag with 18 cubic feet of storage # 988501 will work with the Curt 24 inch by 60 inch Folding Cargo Carrier # C18153. We do not show a compatible light kit that will fit this carrier. I pulled one option that we had in the warehouse but unfortunately the vertical bars that currently have reflectors on the Curt Folding Cargo Carrier were too wide. Therefore we do not have a compatible light kit that can be easily installed without modifying either the cargo carrier...

  • What Can Help Control the Bouncing and Shaking Seen on Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers
  • The bouncing and shaking that you saw in the video is the norm on the majority of cargo carriers on the market. The extended location from the hitch causes the carrier to bounce more than a hitch accessory that might sit closer to the vehicle. There are a few products that can help with the bounce. An anti-rattle device, like # MT70258 for 2 inch hitches, can help by securing the cargo carrier's hitch shank to the hitch receiver. The bolts will push the shank up tight against the top...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for Jeep Wrangler w/ 35 x 12.50 x 18 Oversize Spare Tire
  • In order to choose a cargo carrier that'll work for you, you'll need to measure the distance from your hitch pin hole rearward to clear the spare tire. The cargo carrier you choose will need to have a hitch pin hole to closest portion of the cargo platform distance longer than the measurement you took. You can look in the product demonstrations for the cargo carriers we offer, all the shank lengths are mentioned. I'd suggest the Curt # C18153, which has a hitch pin hole to basket measurement...

  • Can I Use a Cargo Carrier With the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver on my 2015 Ram 1500
  • The Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 31374, which is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Ram 1500 as long as it is a 4x4, has a Vertical Load Rating of 350 lbs. As long as that weight capacity is not exceeded then this front mount hitch will be a great solution for you to carry a generator on the front of your Ram. If you are wanting to use a cargo carrier to haul a variety of cargo, then I recommend going with the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153. This will fit in the 2 inch receiver...

  • Cargo Carrier Compatibility With Small Honda Ruckus Scooter

You will just need to make sure that your towing vehicle and hitch receiver rated tongue weights are able to support the weight of the scooter along with the 70 lb carrier. If this is all you will be using the carrier for, you may be interested in the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Motorcycle Carrier for 2"...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Hitch that Wont Interfere with Liftgate Sensors of 2014 Ford Escape
  • We have several hitches compatible with your 2014 Escape Titanium. There are Class III hitches with the 2 inch receiver opening, the Draw-Tite # 75758. This hitch will block the hands-free liftgate sensors somewhat, they will only be functional in the areas around the exhaust pipes as shown in the diagram I provided. If you decide to go with a 2 inch hitch, I'd recommend the Curt # C18153 folding cargo carrier. The carrier basket measures 24x60, and the basket can fold up against the...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Subaru Forester
  • The best hitch for your 2016 Forester will depend on what you're planning on using the hitch for. If you're only needing the hitch to serve as an attachment point for the Yakima # Y02457 Ridgeback bike rack, a Class II hitch like the Draw-Tite # 36523 would be an excellent choice. However, if you might also use the hitch as an attachment point for other accessories like a large cargo carrier such as the Curt # C18153 or if you might do some light duty towing, a Class III hitch like the...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mount 4-Bike Carrier for 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • A 2-inch Class III hitch like Draw-Tite # 75270 is indeed the best way to transport 4 bikes on your 2010 Honda Odyssey. Installation of this hitch is shown in the linked video, for your reference. Hitch-mount racks put the entire weight load of the rack and bikes onto the car's frame - its strongest part - and a hitch also allows use of other accessory items like a cargo basket such as # C18153 from Curt. Once you have your hitch installed, you'll want to take one simple measurement....

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Sienna
  • To install a bike rack on your 2014 Toyota Sienna, you'd first need to install a trailer hitch, if you don't have one already. The Curt Class III trailer hitch, part # C13105 would be an excellent choice. The Class III hitch uses the more common 2 inch receiver opening, which would give you a better selection of hitch mounted accessories like a bike rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR or a cargo carrier like the Curt # C18153. For carrying 4 bikes, you cannot go wrong with...

  • Availability of Magnetic Lights For Use with Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • You ask a good question. Any vehicle accessory, such as a hitch-mounted cargo carrier like # C18153, when installed and in use must not block the vehicle's various stop/turn/tail lights. In actual practice it is usually not the carrier itself that blocks the lights but the cargo that is loaded on it. A couple of large cartons loaded into this tray-style carrier could, on some vehicles, partially block the view of your lights for a motorist behind you. State laws and the degree of actual...

  • Recommended Bike Carrying Options for 2015 Ford Edge
  • We do offer bike rack options for your 2015 Ford Edge, but the Thule # TH903PRO wouldn't be a good choice. The rack is rather heavy, and with the bikes loaded upon it there's a possibility that the weight of the bikes could damage the visor or spoiler that's above the rear window. In fact, Thule hasn't approved any trunk/hatch mount racks for the 2nd generation Edge as of yet. Yakima offers some hanging type hatch mounted bike racks like the # Y02634 FullBack which is considered a fit,...

  • 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....
