Note: This carrier is not designed for off-road use.


There's plenty of substance behind the stylish appearance of the Rola Dart hitch cargo carrier. The low loading height alleviates the physical strain required to put items in a roof-mounted cargo carrier - and the Dart is more aerodynamic to boot. Mounting a cargo carrier in your hitch also maximizes your overall carrying capacity and lets you transport wet or messy items without soiling your Ford Flex's interior.


Thanks to a front-mounted handle, you can fold the Dart up against your Ford Flex for storage. Simply pull the handle to release the carrier and then lift it up - there's no need to kneel on the ground and release a pin at the base of the carrier. The carrier automatically locks into place in the upright position.


Not only is the Dart innovative - it's good looking too. The cargo carrier has silver ABS plastic panels around the exterior that lend it a stylish, polished look. The front panels have cutouts for mounting LED lights (sold separately), and there are built-in holes for relocating your license plate. Adding lights or moving your license plate is required if the cargo carrier blocks your Ford Flex's tail lights or covers up your license plate.


To protect the carrier and your cargo, the Dart has a rise shank that provides 4-1/2" of added ground clearance over the height of your hitch. This additional clearance helps to prevent the carrier from hitting the ground when you're driving up a steep incline or traversing bumpy terrain.

Works excellently on an Xterra pro 4 x. There is enough room between the truck & basket to easily still load the inside too. And get your bags while traveling. Strong as all get out, you can stand on the basket. Add the lights and much safer traveling in bad weather. Real peace of mind on that. With the fold up it allows you to have regular parking, but that does affect the backup camera some, still useable. But when put in the garage the fold up allows it to be set close enough to the wall to be out of the way. You don’t get to make a truck out of an suv, but it’ll allow you to carry a huge payload. 567172

This is the second Rola carrier and Rola clamp-on fork-mount bike carrier I have purchased. The best on-line purchases I have ever made! I have used them on an almost daily basis and am always receiving compliments about this versatile carrier. People always want to know where I got it! Of course, I refer them to etrailer.com. 562989

It seems OK. My main dislike is that it is so heavy. An improved design would use some aluminum for wt reduction. And corrosion resistance as this is certain to rust as the finish wears and chips away. One fastener in my pack lacked threads so I had to my metric screw box. 453448

Installed on 2010 Odyssey EX-L with factory trailer hitch/wiring harness This review is for BOTH the Rola Dart 23x56 Cargo Carrier - 2 Hitch - Fold *AND* the Rola LED Light Kit for Railed Cargo Carriers Carrier: impressive build quality. Have not used yet; only just installed and mounted. But it is clearly constructed to last and looks great. Latch mechanism for raising and lower is very durable and hardware is very heavy-duty. LED Light Kit: lights look and work great, with separate LEDs for tail lights and break lights. Unimpressed with the manner in which they mount into the carrier. Rather loose-fitting. I don't think they are at risk of falling out, but I was expecting a more snug "snap" when I pressed the lights into the rubber gaskets. Wiring harness is well constructed with very tight-fitting connectors. Should hold up well for many years. Very happy with etrailer.com communication and speed of order processing/shipping. Thank you! 486254

Very substantial trailer hitch carrier... much more surface area than others. Has a very high end appearance to it. Very easy to put together with a socket set and wrench. It also folds up very easy behind the car. I have a Porsche Cayenne and can easily open the hatch with it fully loaded up. 225253

Installed on 2017 Honda Pilot. Good fit easy to assemble and looks great on car. I purchased the led light kit and installed it works great brake lights and turn signals. Added one reflector on right and left sides and two on bottom so when folded up there would be better visibility at night. I like the looks and it is build solid. Also purchased etrailer 20ft waterproof cargo bag to hold suitcases. Looking forward to using it on next trip. Thank you etrailer. 456908

Thanks Ashley for the great service! You took my order Wednesday AM & I received it Thursday PM. Put Rola cargo carrier & trailer hitch together in 90 minutes by myself. Did not have to take spare tire out as instructed. I have not had the chance to test it out, but everything looks as good as advertised! 338387

Very pleased with the carrier. Well constructed. Securely mounts to hitch receiver so there is no rattling or movement. It is a bit heavier than I expected, but that is understandable due to the construction. I am still able to install it an uninstall it by myself, but a second person makes it a breeze. I added the enclosed cargo bag and was amazed how much it held. It added waterproof protection for all of the luggage. The only improvement that I can think of would be to have it lock in the folded up position, as you can't travel with it folded up, but that's very minor. 417428

Arrived quickly, very sturdy shipping box and well packaged. Easy to assemble, note that the assembly instructions are only online (just a QR/link in the box itself). If you don't have something to view them it would be useful to print them out beforehand. Very easy assembly, took 30 minutes to build (it helped that I had the tools and parts laid out beforehand). Works perfectly, handle locks and unlocks the basket easily. Very sturdy (and very heavy), takes some effort to put in the receiver. But the lift/lock mechanism is very easy to use and works very well. Except... The shank does not rattle, but the hinge assembly is a little loose so the basket can wobble from side to side. I'm tempted to torque the hinge bolt, but worried it would bind. It comes pre-built, there is no mention of the hinge bolt in the instructions at all. In the pictures (if you look closely) you can see the amount of play in the basket's shank (look at the pin on the right of the pictures). In one the basket is pushed to the right, in the other to the left, there is significant slop. The walls of the hinge are much wider than necessary (approximately 3/16" wider than the shank). Perhaps "squeezing" the sides to reduce the slop (again worried about binding)? Reduced to four stars because of this. 479305


Comments

Thomas,Thank you for your review. To tighten up some of the slack you can use a anti rattle device such as Roadmaster quiet hitch part RM-061 made for 2 inch hitches. This hitch immobilizer keeps hitch-mounted accessories stable and secure.

Well made and easy to assemble. Assembly calls for a torque wrench, which I had on hand. The only problem I had was with the LED light kit that I purchased separately. The lights are supposed to be held into the sockets on the carrier with rubber grommets. But, the grommets are woefully inadequate, and the lights will fall out. I'm having to finish some engineer's job to get the lights to stay in the sockets. The carrier folds easily. I didn't take a star off for the light kit since the light kit is a separate item that was rated separately. 177930

Installed the rola fold up cargo platform with led light kit. Took a leisurely hour, everything installed easily enough. Nice size for bulky camping equipment or garden dirt. Removes need for roof rack, or towing a small trailer. I save about 1-5mpg with cargo carrier over trailer depending upon tow vehicle. I previously had the fixed rola cargo rack, and it extended the truck out very far, this is far more parking lot friendly. It does interfere with back radar sensors like all racks. 75113

All the hardware was there. All the parts were there with paper instructions. Easy assy of the unit. Took thirty minutes approx. It fit the 2" hitch on the car with no problems at all. Took it for a ride over city streets and was happy that it does NOT rattle over city streets when either folded up or extended. I did put the basket on backwards and it took another fifteen minutes to turn it around where the light opening face aft. I doubt I'll need tail lights on the unit cause the ML350 Bluetec lights are up high on the SUV. Coulda left the basket like it was. 221906

This is my first cargo carrier and was shopping several types and brands. Found Etrailer on line and quickly compared several models. A local truck specialty store had another model in the store but after asking some questions to the Etrailer rep, I decided that I would go with the ROLA brand due to superior construction and looks. Yes, it was more expensive, but I prefer to pay for quality and getting great customer service is worth it. Cargo carrier arrived in 3 days and love it. Wouldn't go anywhere else for future purchases. 92434

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


  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for 2018 Ford Flex Ecoboost
  • For your 2018 Ford Flex Ecoboost, I recommend going with the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550. This is a really nice carrier that features an integrated handle on the front that lets you easily fold the carrier up against the vehicle when not in use. The mesh floor is easy to clean, and as you mentioned in your question, a fork-mount bike carrier can be added with # 59904. This, along with the higher shank rise of 4-1/2 inches (compared to 2 inches on the Curt) is why I recommend it over...

  • Options for Hauling Both Bikes and Cargo in a Hitch Mounted Carrier
  • If you are looking to carry both bikes and carrier in a hitch mounted carrier, your best bet would be to go with something like our Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform 2 Bike Rack with Cargo Carrier, # HR1450Z-85. The Curt Clamp-On, # C18013, is a ball-mount-mounted rack that you mentioned will both provide the same amount of rise. From the bike cradle to the top of the receiver clamp measures 27 inches (I included a picture for you) so unless you just plan on carrying very small...

  • Is it Permissible to Drive with Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 Folded Up in the Storage Position
  • It is permissible to drive with the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier, part # 59550, folded up in the storage position as long as it does not block the vehicle license plate or tail lights. The carrier includes license plate relocation holes to let you reposition the plate if necessary. It also includes mounting locations for a lighting kit (part # 20174) if the carrier should block your vehicle tail lights, as well as an anti-rattle hitch pin and clip. The lighting kit will require that your vehicle...

  • Locking Hitch Pin Recommendation for 23x56 Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550
  • The 23x56 Rola Dart Cargo Carrier, # 59550, has a solid shank with a threaded hitch pin hole for use with it's anti-rattle hitch pin. A locking hitch pin is not available for use with this style of hitch pin hole. In order to secure the carrier to your vehicle, I recommend using a locking cable like the Master Lock Quantum 30 Armored Steel Cable Lock, # 8218DPS. This cable can wrap around the carrier and your hitch to deter theft.

  • Clearing the Spare Tire on a 2009 Toyota RAV4 with a 24x60 Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Cargo Carrier
  • The Curt 24x60 Cargo Carrier, part # C18153 will fit the rear of your 2009 RAV4 with spare tire. The distance from the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier is 9 inches, and this clears the RAV4's available space. If you'd like to verify this distance and fit, you'll want to measure from the center of your receiver's hitch pin hole to the furthest point of the vehicle's spare tire. My research shows that this distance is usually about 6-7 inches. I've included a video...

  • Will Pro Series Lock-Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Fit Rola Dart Cargo Carrier
  • I spoke with my contact at Rola said that the Lock-Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin we carry will not work. The only option would be to use a locking cable like # 107KADSPT to secure carrier to the vehicle/hitch.

  • Compatibility of Rola Cargo Carrier LED Lamp Kit # 59516 with Pro Series # 63153 Cargo Carrier
  • The Rola LED light kit you referenced, part # 59516 is indeed compatible with the Pro Series # 63153 cargo carrier. There is also the # 98174LED lamp kit that would also work, but I personally prefer the Rola Kit due to its heavier-duty wiring harness and connectors. Either light kit is also compatible with the # 59502, 59507, 59550, 63154 and 63155 cargo carriers. I have linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for a 2017 GMC Yukon
  • There's two that really stand out as great options for a bigger SUV, the CarPod, part # M2205-01-02 and the Rola Dart, part # 59550. Both of these are larger, folding carriers that will work with your vehicle's larger hitch. The CarPod is a walled, lockable carrier that includes a weather-resistant bag. This carrier can be used with or without the bag for a wide range of applications, and can be easily locked with a 3/8 inch diameter padlock like part # AT89019. The rack also can have...

  • Solution for More Ground Clearance for Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • We do have the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544 which you can use to hold your 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 higher in your Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75270 on your 2011 Honda Odyssey, but the downside is that you will lose 50% of the weight capacity of the hitch or your vehicle (whichever is lower). The Draw-Tite trailer hitch has a tongue weight (TW) capacity of 675 lbs so that means it can only hold 337-1/2 lbs including the 70 lb Curt carrier. This means that you...

  • Wobble With the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier for 2 Inch Hitches, Part # 59550
  • The Rola Dart Cargo Carrier for 2 Inch Hitches, Part # 59550, as a folding-type carrier, will tend to exhibit slightly more play than a fixed non-folding carrier. There will always be some amount of wobble with an empty carrier even with a product like this Rola, which includes a built-in anti-wobble device for the hitch receiver. Other similar folding carrier products, such as folding bike racks, will also typically have a bit more slack compared to the fixed variety of carriers. Once...

  • Comparing Rola and Pro Series Cargo Carriers for a 2009 Toyota Highlander
  • The Pro Series carrier # 63153 is a great value. The steel mesh floor of this basket has smaller opening compared to the Rola carriers, # 59502 and # 59550 so it is less likely to allow something to fall through. If you will not be using the carrier very often then I would go with the Pro Series carrier all the way. It can be fitted with light kit # 20174. The middle ground is Rola carrier # 59502. This basket is a little higher quality than the Pro Series but lacks the razzle dazzle...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier for 2010 Chevy Traverse
  • Rola offers a folding carrier, part # 59550 that's compatible with the # 59516 light kit. To see if the basket would work on your vehicle, you'll need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole in your receiver to the furthest rearward edge of the rear bumper, as shown in the FAQ article I've linked you to. As long as this distance is less than 7 inches, the carrier would be compatible with your vehicle. Unfortunately, Rola doesn't make a folding version of the # 59502. The Surco...

Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back 7 inches. This point is where the closest edge of the carrier will be when attached to your vehicle and folded up in the storage position. As long as this point is behind your rear bumper (and any other parts at the rear of the vehicle) the Rola carrier will fit when...

  • Where Can Straps be Hooked to on the Rola Dart Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • The holes at the rear of the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 are there to install lights, # 20174 or # 59516. A more structurally sound location, such as at the bottom corner, would be better to hook on to. You can hook onto any part of the tray mesh and main supports, where accessible, to secure cargo.

  • Options for Locking the Hitch Pin of the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier part # 59550
  • There is an option for locking the hitch pin of the Rola 23x56 inch Dart Cargo Carrier part # 59550 that you referenced, but it will require you to track down a pad lock that has a diameter of less than an 1/8 of an inch so that it will fit in the hole that the cotter pin usually slides through. I confirmed that this would work with my contact at Rola. Since this carrier uses a threaded hitch pin and Rola does not offer a locking option universal locking hitch pins would not work. We...

  • Can Rola Dart Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Locked to the Trailer Hitch
  • The Rola Dart, # 59550, has a threaded hitch pin meaning that it has a weld nut inside the shank. That nut is going to prevent the use of anti-rattle device and lock # 63232. The best way to lock the carrier to the hitch is to use a cable lock such as # TR63255.

  • Light Kit Recommendation and Comparison for Rola Dart Cargo Carrier
  • The main difference between the Light Kit # 20174 and # 59516 is that the # 59516 uses LED style lights and the # 20174 uses incandescent lights. LED lights are much brighter and last longer than incandescent bulbs while only drawing a fraction of the amperage. Both of these kits are confirmed to fit the Rola Dart cargo carrier # 59550 you are interested in. I attached install videos for both kits for you to check out as well.

  • Enclosed Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2009 Honda Pilot
  • The release mechanism is actually not in the covered portion of the handle that is under the skid plate. The mechanism is actually in the portion that gets bolted to the shank that gets inserted into the hitch of the vehicle. The mechanism would be easy to clean and would be difficult to get dirty enough that it would stop releasing, but in that situation you could easily hose out the mechanism and get it working again.

  • Folding Cargo Carrier Compatibility with a 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151 that you referenced should work well on your 2013 Honda Odyssey in the folded down position as long as you have a hitch with a 2 inch opening like the Curt Hitch part # C13068. However, there would not be enough clearance for the carrier to fold up. This carrier has a distance of 16-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest rail of the carrier when folded down and 6 inches when folded up. All of the hitches available for your vehicle...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Clear Rear Bumper on a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • On the Curt trailer hitch mount cargo carrier # C18153 it measures 8-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the pivot bracket. If you measure on your FJ Cruiser from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the distance needed to clear the rear bumper and it is less than 8-3/4 inches then the carrier will fit when folded down. But when folded up the carrier is 9 inches from the center of the pin hole.

  • Weight of Rola Dart Cargo Carrier Part # 59550
  • The shipping weight of the Rola Dart carrier is just a bit less than 74 lbs, but once the packaging is removed, the carrier is right at 65 lbs, according to Rola. If the carrier or what is carried upon it will obscure your taillights, a cargo carrier light kit like part # 20174 is recommended. An LED kit is also available as part # 59516. You can see a product demonstration video featuring the carrier and the light kit by clicking the provided links.

  • Availability Inexpensive Folding Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • We do have an inexpensive folding cargo carrier that would work perfectly for you, the # C18153 from Curt. This carrier, at 24x60 is actually a bit larger than the Rola carrier you mentioned, and it's considerably less expensive. You will need to take a measurement on your hitch to ensure that a folding carrier will have enough clearance to fold up. For instance, the C18153 requires 9 inches of clearance between the hitch pin hole in the receiver to the furthest portion of the rear...
