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!!!

Awesome. So glad I bought this. I get comments all the time how they love how it folds up. It travels well and hold up to weight pretty good. I just let my cousin borrow it for a vacation and I am pretty sure he is going to buy one. at least I hope so he doesnt keep borrowing mine :

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.

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

JoeU. The hitch was custom made by me to tow a boat. So its actually bolted to the trailers inner frame rails. Very stout! Hope this helps.

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.

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

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

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 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

After having the curt cargo carrier for one year, its held up great! Mounted on a 2010 Ford Edge, it scrapes the ground when maneuvering out of some parking lots, especially when fully loaded. Probably not an issue in vehicles with more ground clearance. I’ve never put 500 lbs on it, but a couple (~200), maybe. It has some light rust on the scratches, but has, otherwise, held up nicely. I’ve kept it in the garage to prevent too much weather damage. It’s done well on trips from TX to GA to FL. The only criticism I have is that there are no good tie-down spots. The rails, while sturdy, are a bit too large in diameter to attach my most heavy duty ratchet straps and even the larger D-rings I have. Problem easily solved with four U bolts. After that modification, the cargo carrier is nearly perfect and is now a more modular attachment. 549681

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

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

I actually purchased this carrier in Aug 2015 so Ive had it for 3 summers. It remains one of the best purchases Ive ever made. I only use it once or twice a year but it has extended the life and use of my Outback. For [the money] you really cant ask for more. Worth every penny.

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

Great trailer, really used it only once for a family trip. Wish that it had brake lights already installed but I put my own on. If putting you own on, don’t attach to underside as they will drag occasionally at various entrances, exits, etc. really never knew it was on our van until we stopped. 558442

used multiple times to haul my 6hp outboard together with boat accessories for my portabote. No sway issues, no quality issues, works as expected which is excellent. Easy setup. On a heavy side as expected, but no issues setting up alone I am using this on jeep wrangler 2017 unlimited, not modified. For my application it works well with known in advance limitations: 1. due to spare tire i cannot open the gate 2. for the same reason cannot fold carrier 540679

Easy to follow instructions. Did not come with a hitch pin to install it to the vehicle. I also installed some towing lights onto the back to ensure maximum visibility. I loaded it up and cargo strapped approx. 300lbs of items and it made a 700 mile trip through mountain passes and flat desert with no issues. Highly recommended as an economical storage solution. 539410

Has plenty of clearance to swing into up position with the spare on my Jeep Wrangler- but the tailgate doesn’t open all the way when the carrier is in the down position. Not the end of the world! Think it’ll be perfect for our trip with the waterproof curt cargo bag too! 899532

    The 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 will fit just fine on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but you won't be able to open your rear hatch door or utilize the folding feature due to your spare tire.

    The advantage of a folding carrier like part # 52018F is, obviously, that it it can fold up for rear clearance when you don't have anything loaded on it. The disadvantage of a folding carrier is that since there are more hinges and connection points they can tend to have more movement. Fixed carriers like part # C18153 that you referenced cannot, as their name suggests, fold up for storage or rear clearance, but since the shank is one solid piece they tend to have less movement.

  • Cargo Carrier on the Rear of my 5th Wheel Camper
    It is very common to see the 23x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # C18153 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.

    I attached a picture of the Curt cargo carrier part # C18153 installed on a Wrangler with it folded up and able to clear the rear spare. To be absolutely certain this will fit and clear in your application too you'll need to take one measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin on the vehicle out to the furthest point out on the rear spare. If that's less than 9 inches this will clear folded up. Either way it will clear folded down.

It does not come with a pin and clip but you have a couple options. For a standard pin and clip you would want part # PC3, for a locking one part # e98880, and finally for a locking anti-rattle one you would want the part # 63232.

Because the ride is quite a bit rougher at the rear of a 5th wheel trailer compared to that of a standard passenger vehicle, we don't typically recommend folding carriers like this one as the hinge represents a potential weak point. I instead recommend the Curt Cargo...

  • Parts Needed to Add Light Kit to Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153
    What I recommend for Curt cargo carrier # C18153 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. Which if you didn't have that on your 2014 Hyundai Tucson you'd need the part # 118501 as well. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • 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. When you are already starting off with the smaller 1-1/4-inch shank, adding more potential for weak spots deters carrier makers from trying to make a folding hitch cargo carrier for these hitches. We do have one...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Strap Recommendations
    For the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18153 that you referenced you have a couple options. You can use a stretchable cargo net like the part # H9500100 and/or you can use a ratchet type strap like the # EM34415. I attached a review video for you to check out that shows how ratchet straps are typically used. For the ultimate in cargo control I would recommend using both, but just the straps would work fine as well for larger items.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle for Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier #C18153 on 2015 Subaru Forester Trailer Hitch
    One of the best anti-rattle devices for the Curt cargo carrier # C18153 is the Let's Go Aero # 63232. The Silent Hitch Pin works by taking the rattle and play out of the connection between your trailer hitch and your cargo carrier. The unique design features a sturdy steel block with an attached spring that sits inside the shank of your hitch-mounted cargo carrier. You will simply place the block inside your cargo carrier's shank, and line up the hole in the block with the pin hole in...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Front Hitch of Truck with Over Cab Camper
    Sounds like you are looking for a hitch mounted cargo carrier to mount in a front hitch for your truck. The most popular cargo carrier we have is the Curt # C18153 which will fit a 2 inch hitch and can fold up when not needed. Being able to fold could be very helpful in a front hitch. I attached a review video for the carrier for you to check out as well. This carrier also has a 500 lb carrying capacity.

  • 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.

  • Carrier Recommendation for Rear of 5th Wheel for Carrying Scooter
    The Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier part # CC-100 is approved for use behind an RV like what you have but the Curt you mentioned would not be rated for the rougher ride quality there. This also has a 500 lb capacity. The Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches part # UF48-979033 is the only RV approved motorcycle carrier we offer so this would be the best way to transport your scooter as it has a ramp to make loading/unloading a bit easier. For a hitch lock that also takes out the...

  • RV Hitch Carrier for Transporting Honda 7000W Generator
    We offer lots of hitch-mount cargo carriers and for use with a larger generator like the Honda 7000W (which has wheels) I suggest a ramped carrier. The 30 x 50-inch MaxxTow Ramped Carrier # MT70106 offers interior dimensions 48 long x 28 wide x 5-inches deep. It also has a 500-lb capacity and includes an anti-rattle device. For an anti-rattle hitch lock use part # 63232. You'll also need some type of tie-downs to secure the generator to the carrier. I suggest a set such as # IMF12637. Be...

  • Recommended Light Kit for Curt Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    There is no light kit specifically designed for the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18153, but we do have a solution that will work for you. You can use an LED light kit like part # 98174LED. You would then need two brackets, part # BK70BB. To attach the brackets to the carrier you will need self-tapping screws like part # FA1131822 or you can use other hardware to mount the light brackets. This light kit does come with a 4-way trailer connector so if your Acura needs a wiring harness...

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Combo Recommendation
    I have a great solution for you, but you cannot install a hitch accessory in the tube at the end of the Curt carrier part # C18153 that you referenced. Instead check out the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider and Cargo Carrier part # HR1400Z-85-FB which comes with a carrier at the rear of a platform bike rack. You can also remove the bike rack portion and just use the cargo carrier if you want as well. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Lock For Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier
    The pin you are asking about on the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier, part # C18153 is a 5/8 inch pin. I would advise against drilling through the pin because it could compromise the strength and integrity of the pin but I do have a solution for you. I recommend replacing the pin with a hitch pin like part # e98882. This is a 5/8 inch pin tat has a covered key slot that helps prevent corrosion.
