Video Transcript for MaxxTow Pivoting Ramp Cargo Carrier Review

Today were going to be taking a look at the 29x59 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier. This comes with a 60 inch pivoting ramp. Its designed for use in 2 inch hitches that offers a 500 pound weight capacity, part number MT70275. This hitch-mount, basket-style cargo carrier allows us to easily tote things that might not fit in the back of our truck. Also its going to help keep any muddy, dirty kind of stuff out of the vehicle. It has extra-long loading ramp.

This is a bi-fold design, so it will fold out in the middle. This is going to allow us to easily tow our equipment, our wheeled stuffs, such as snow blowers, lawnmowers, scooters, wheelchairs, things such as that. As you can see, with our ramp in its loaded position, its going to give us maximum area here for storing all of our goods. Also provides a nice tall box top for anything we might have inside. The cargo carrier comes with nice reflectors that go on the rear on both sides. This is going to help of course with the visibility, as well as secure strap hooks located at all four of the corners.

Any cargo that we get loaded in there will be able to easily strap down. As you can see, our floor is going to give us great stability for those larger items. But the gaps between arent large enough that smaller items are going to have any issue. This is also going to allow us to washout any grime and gunk, things like that to keep it looking nice. The lightweight corrosion resistant extruded aluminum material that our carrier is designed of helps to detract from our total hitch weight, rather than using a steel carrier, itd be much heavier. This aluminum is going to allow us to carry larger loads.

As you can see when our ramp is in the upright position, when weve got all of our cargo loaded, we have a dual pin system. One located on the left side, one located on the right side. Youre going to have this on both sides of the ramp to help hold it securely in place. When we have our ramp folded down, we have a nice hook and loop strap. The ramp will come down here and then well be able to secure it right over that to hold it down into its stored position. To begin our installation, were going to slide the shank of our carrier right into the receiver tube of our hitch.

Were going to line up our pin holes, and we can slide through our pin. Well secure it here on the other side using the clip. As you can see, with just the pin and clip installed, our cargo carrier has a lot of movement and a lot of trouble. MaxxTow has provided a solution for that by sending an anti-rattle device. Just slide this up until the two bolts are sitting on top of your receiver tube. Begin by hand tightening. Then we can take our 16mm socket and tighten that on down. Well tighten each open just a little bit at a time. With both main bolts tight, well now take a 16mm box-end wrench and tighten down the two small set nuts. By tightening those down, it really takes all the play and all the movement out of that rack. You can have a very little shifting even with a heavy load. With our carrier installed, were now ready to load up some gear. Today weve got a lawnmower just to kind of show you and how you load stuff up. To start, were going to undo the hook and loop strap here thats holding down our ramp, extend our ramp out, grab our gear, and slide it right on in. Well then come around to our ramp, grab it here in the middle section, then well fold up easily. Well then insert our double pin. As we do it, we want one portion to be behind, one portion to be in front of our ramp, and well simply slide in the clip. Now weve got one of these on each side, so well be sure to secure both of them. With both our pins and clips in place, our ramp is not going anywhere, its nice and secured, were ready to strap down our load and we can hit the road. Now that weve got our lawnmower loaded up, were going to take it out and let you see what it looks like going through our slalom course, our alternating bumps and our straight bumps. That will complete todays look at the MaxxTow 29x49 Cargo Carrier with the 60 inch pivoting ramp, part number MT70275. .

My order arrived in great shape. I plan to use the carrier to transport my mobility scooter, and, believe it or not, with the help of my wife I finished the assembly while seated in my power wheel chair. That way I could scoot from one end or side to the other. We are very pleased with the looks and quality of the carrier. It also looks great at the back of our Ford Explorer. 218716

Excellent! It has proven to be everything I hoped it would be. Very easy to load/unload my mobility scooter. It does not block view through rear window. Also easy to remove and store.

This is my first time working with etrailer. All corespondence was done over the enter net. I live in Montana and etrailer is in Missouri I couldn't find what I needed for carrying my electric generator in Montana. Etrailer sales crew was more than helpful. They helped me through the whole process. I bought the carrier and it was shipped faster than expected. Angela W deserves the highest complement. Even after the sale she did a follow up to make sure I received everything. 382041

Excellent purchase. Order 3-10, arrived 3-14-17. Very little that needed assembled. Ramp was already attached, basket was complete. Had to attach the reflectors, tie downs and screw the hitch plate on the bottom. Much easier to do on top a picnic table. Saved my old knees from crawling around on the ground. I had also ordered a Curt Multipurpose Ball mount with a 4" riser for the receiver as the receiver on my Grand Caravan sits fairly low to the ground. I had it all assembled & on the car with the help of a hand dolly. I'm 5'4", 135#, and a 66 year old female. If I can deal with this unit, anyone can. I have no complaints about the quality. Well built, appears sturdy & all the bolt holes lined up perfectly. I'm a bit concerned about the plastic corner pieces but if they fail, I'm sure I can figure out a fix. 352973

We purchased a mobility scooter carrier. It arrived really fast & in perfect condition, the packaging was done really well. It is well designed & easy to use & was really easy to install. It's very sturdy & well made. We are very happy with it & would recommend it to anyone carrying a mobility scooter. Also, very good price for quality workmanship. 437639

We vacation in St. Augustine where you can drive on the beach. Use the hitch hauler to shuttle items from condo to the beach every day, (chairs, toys, canopy, etc.). Works great as the items and hitch hauler can be rinsed off at the end of the day to remove sand and salt. Also use it to transport lawnmower to lake property to cut the grass every couple of weeks. The all aluminum construction is light weight to install and it maintains it newness (no rust or cracked paint). Installed an LED light bar, with turn signals, backup and running lights across the back for improved visibility day and night. Highly recommend this product. 387271

I received the cargo carrier yesterday. The box was literally beat to a pulp and had been taped together, absolutely a terrible job of packaging a product for delivery by UPS or any other freight company. 2 of the uprights were bent, the 2 hairpin (hitch pins) that hold the lock in place when the ramp is in the vertical position was missing, the metal plate that is welded to the male part of the receiver was also bent, one of the treads on the ramp had also been gouged. I straightened out the uprights, went to Lowes and bought 2 new hitch pins and was able to hammer the hitch mounting plate straight. I guess I'll live with the little gouge on the ramp tread. As the box is totally not in a shape for me to send the product back. If I had bought this locally, I would have taken it back to the store for a refund. The ramp is what I expected it to be, the quality is satisfactory. It's just the shipping that damaged the product. I need the carrier for this weekend, if it were not for that, I would have shipped it back for a full refund and found another source. Again, the product I believe will serve the purpose intended, it was damaged in shipping along with the lost components. There needs to be a better packaging if ETrailer intends to ship this via a commercial carrier. 362602

Put it together easily, carrier meets all my expectations. The carrier will be used to move my Mom's mobility scooter. Because my Sister helps by taking Mom around I made a roll around carrier storage/mover. The roll around stand places the carrier at exactly the right height, such that my sister can roll the carrier up to the back of her car and the carrier can be pushed into the receiver without any lifting. etrailer should consider designing something similar with adjustable height so that the carrier can be more easily installed by older/weaker folks. 300819

Product was decently scratched up upon arrival. Assembly was limited but instructions were very poor. They are paragraphs with 4 tiny pictures that are really difficult to follow. There is also no installation video on the website which would have been helpful due to the poor instructions. It is not a crazy assembly and when you look at the pieces you can kind of guess what goes where - just poor quality which gives me concern if this is the amount of effort they put in to the product. The feel of the actual product was eh - alright. Feels solid enough (aluminium always feels a little flimsy - but the lightweight is very nice) but I am certainly not blow away. Also on the weight topic the arm that goes into the hitch is steel and super heavy. It is probably for good reason but it is not really a one person job to mount it. Could be done in a pinch but watch your back. There is an anti-vibrate collar which is a great idea but when tightening it is just open screws being cranked down to your tow hitch - it will certainly damage the paint and allow for rust in short time. Also I was hoping the ramp could be removed at times. It can be technically but I think getting it back together would be very difficult. Lastly the hitch pin just doesnt line up well - hoping this is just because it is new and unused but I spent way more time then I should have trying to get the most important part of the system to go together. Overall it is going to do it's job but for the price I would have expected more. 282904

I bought this this cargo carrier for my brother to help him with his small landscaping business. Instead of constantly lifting his mower in and out of the back of his pickup truck - possibly hurting his (or my) back - now all he has to do is simply roll his mower onto the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier and buckle it up. Its that simple. This cargo carrier has really addressed our needs. I bought a lock for the cargo carrier so it stays on his pickup truck at all times. And my brother says he is gets compliments all the time, too. 656123

Product delivered prior to estimated time. Package was in perfect shape when delivered. All holes were drilled perfectly so assembly was easy. Assembly took about 1 hour. Product was as advertised and was just what I wanted. The instructions were printed on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper folded in half the form a booklet making it very hard to read the fine print and diagrams. Should have been printed full page. 643782

I bought the maxx tow because I am sick of carrying gasoline containers and lawn mowers on my front seat. The aluminum carrier was more expensive and it might corrode a bit but it won't outright rust and while some what heavy to attatch, the steel one must be a real chore. My one complaint is with the shipping company as my carrier was obviously tossed out the back of the truck from a great height. All attempts to package the unit securely at the factory failed under the rough handling and abuse. One rail was very bent and the steel base had broken all it's tie downs and was shifting within the carrier during shipping doing more cosmetic damage. I wasn't home when it was delivered to inspect as usual. I'd sort of like to damage my own stuff. 417878

I purchased this as I am handicap and utilize a small G0 G0 Pride Scooter, it's a very nice product. Unfortunately due to my fusion and instability of my feet and my age I am unable to use this product independently. I can't walk down the ramp and didn't take into consideration of winter here in Illinois, as my grandkids pointed out. How can I use my scooter in winter with the snow by myself. This product is not for use with a mobility scooter if you are still independent. 357487

Trailer is relatively light, sturdy, and has fit my purposes well (2010 Subaru Outback). Two suggested improvements would be: (1) design the back end to ride an inch or two little higher as I've scraped the bottom while traveling over uneven road surfaces (2) eliminate the need to crawl under the car to attach and secure it to the hitch receiver. 343553

Fast shipping. No printed instructions, but if you are reasonably handy, you will figure it out. Instructions are available on etrailer's website. It took about 30 min. to assemble. Just assemble it upside down. Pretty well made for Chinese crap. We've gotta bring these jobs back and build this stuff here! All said and done, the bottom line is "It'll get the job done". I'm happy! 319808

I bought this carrier to transport a snow blower between various family homes. The fold down ramp makes this a very easy job. One drawback I have is since my main use is in winter & with less day light I wish it had an option for led lighting. When the ramp is in the up/stored position (with snowblower loaded) it blocks the light on my truck (limiting the light/turn signal). I have now bought another tool I wanted to haul & the platform is about 1" to narrow & will/would take a major redo to make it work. I have also bought a hitch stabilizer to keep the unit from rocking in the hitch. Overall this unit works great for my original intended use & I am very satisfied. 319614

Great product it was easy to assemble and did not even look at instructions Lol . The collar that comes with it to stable it works very well . I have already use it to pick a snow blower up. it works very well with the ramp with ease. Glad I bought it instead of using a trailer for the snow blower. 319571

Was a painless transaction, checkout went well online. Order was delivered by UPS to the wrong address which was no fault of Etrailer.com. Setup was easy and went very quickly. Seems to be of a decent quality, however I have not used or placed on my truck as of yet. 315046

  • Will EcoHitch Front Mount Hitch Receiver Fit a Diesel 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • I do have a way that you can still have a front mount hitch receiver on your 2018 Ford F-350 but when I spoke with my contact at EcoHitch he said that the diesel models have extra cooler lines that would get in the way of the EcoHitch Hidden Front Mount # 306-X7904. For a trailer hitch that fits your 2018 F-350 diesel I recommend the Curt Front Mount # C31078 over the Draw-Tite # 65076 because they have easier instructions when it comes to cutting the front fascia.

This is the maximum weight the hitch can support and the combined weight of the cargo carrier you choose, plus what you load on it, must be within the hitch limit. If your cargo loads will get close to the hitch's limit then a lighter weight aluminum carrier may indeed be a good choice. Here are the key stats...

  • Although we don't carry any aluminum carriers with an inside width greater than 28 inches, we do have a powder coated steel ramped carrier that measures 47-3/4 long by 31-3/4 wide, part # PS10401-10402 that would work great for you. The carrier has a 400 lb capacity, but you'll be limited by the capacity of the hitch if it's less than the capacity of the hitch. If you click the provided link, you can view a product demonstration video. The MaxxTow # MT70275 has an inside dimension...

  • Best Cargo Carrier with Ramp Recommendation for a Ford F250 for Landscaping Business
  • For your Ford F250 you will probably want the biggest carrier available, with the highest capacity and the longest ramp for your landscaping business. For that I would recommend the MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier with Ramp part # MT70275. This carrier has a 500 lb capacity with dimensions of 30 inches by 50 inches, a 60 inch ramp and is made of aluminum to resist corrosion. The only difference between it and the # MT70106 that you referenced is the length of the ramp and it is a steel...

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier to Transport Permobil C300 Power Chair That Weighs 350-lbs
  • I contacted Permobil to find out the weight of their C300 power chair and it weighs 350-lbs including the batteries. We do indeed offer several ramped carriers that will have the capacity for this chair and that also will fit a 2-inch hitch. Since I do not know your vehicle or hitch I suggest you first take a look at the vehicle owner's manual for any guidance regarding its tongue weight (TW) capacity. (TW is the downward force on the vehicle frame from whatever is attached to it.) Your...

  • Will the MaxxTow 29x49 Cargo Carrier with Ramp # MT70275 Work to Haul a 190-lb Generator
  • The MaxxTow 29x49 Cargo Carrier, # MT70275, would be an excellent carrier for your 190-lb generator. This carrier has a 500-lb weight capacity and the 60 inch ramp will make it easy to load and unload your generator. It would be best to center the generator on the carrier and secure it in place with tie-down straps like the Erickson Retractable Ratchet Straps, # 34413. If the generator does shift to one side or the other, the carrier will tilt slightly to that side, but that would be...

  • What Size is the Pin that Holds the Ramp Up on MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp
  • I went out to our demo area and measured the ramp pin on MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70275. The pin has a 0.30 inch diameter and is 2.45 inches long overall. From under the pin head to the end of the pin it is 2.38 inches long. This pin design is cost effective and helps keep the overall cost down. It is an uncommon diameter and the closest we have to a match is # ML1491DAT which has a 9/32 inch diameter (0.28 inches) so it would fit a little loose. A 5/16 inch pin such as # 516-212TR...

  • How to Use MaxxTow Cargo Carrier With 2 Shank in 2-1/2 Hitch
  • I believe you are asking about an adapter, and you can use the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier w/ 60" Pivoting Ramp # MT70275, which has a 2" shank, in the 2-1/2" receiver of your 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500 simply by using Hitch Reducer Sleeve # C45405. This reducer sleeve will insert into your 2-1/2" hitch and that's all you would need. I do strongly recommend using anti-rattle hitch lock # SHP2040-XL to secure your investment and keep the vibration and rattle to a minimum. I've added links to...

  • Can MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp Fold Up for Storage
  • The MaxxTow aluminum cargo carrier with ramp # MT70275 is a fixed carrier which means it does not fold up or tilt. We do have some carriers with ramps that fold up but they are steel and not aluminum: # MT70106 and # MT70260. The only difference between these two is the length of each ramp. I have linked video reviews of these carriers for you. Curt aluminum carrier # C18100 folds up but doesn't have a ramp but if a ramp is not required then this carrier is another option. I have linked...

  • Can 27x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2 Inch Hitches Be Used In 2-1/2 In Receiver with Reducer
  • There is no issue with using a 2-1/2 inch receiver with a reducer to carry a hitch cargo carrier. You will likely need a longer hitch pin for the 2-1/2 inch receiver. The hitch pin that is included with the rack is for 2 inch hitch receivers. I recommend the 27 x 47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier with 60 Inch Pivoting Ramp # MT70275. This carrier has a weight capacity of up 500 pounds and features a 60 inch ramp for easier loading and unloading. Having an open floor design helps prevent road...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for Motorized Wheelchair

This carrier will fit in a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and has a weight capacity of up to 500 pounds. The longer ramp on this carrier will make it easier to load a wheelchair on this carrier than those carriers that have a shorter ramp. Once the wheelchair is loaded, the ramp will fold in half, pivot up, and be secured in place with a pin and clip. Being made...

  • Solution for Carrying Mobility Scooter with Trailer Hitch Carrier on 2015 Chevrolet Equinox
  • I have a solution for you, but unfortunately we do not have a hitch cargo carrier that will work well to transport a mobility scooter with your 1-1/4 inch, Class II trailer hitch. All of the Class II compatible cargo carriers we offer are either enclosed carriers or flat carriers that do not have a ramp to easily load a scooter. The best solution to be able to carry the mobility scooter is to replace the Class II trailer hitch on your 2015 Chevrolet Equinox with a Class III hitch that...

  • Best Cargo Carrier with Ramp Options for a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse with the Factory Tow Package
  • I have 2 different recommendations for you that have to do with the functionality of the cargo carriers. One of the key components in looking at cargo carriers is that they are on the lighter side of things so that they don't eat up your Tongue Weight (TW) which takes away from how much cargo you can carry. The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70106 is a great product that weighs about 85 lbs. This is made of steel, comes with a single ramp, has the option to fold up without cargo,...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for Use with MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70275

  • Recommended Aluminum Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier for Corrosion Resistance
  • We have one aluminum folding option for you and it is the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - 500 lbs # C18100. This carrier is well made and will store close to your vehicle when not in use. We have a few other aluminum options also rated for 500 lbs capacity but they don't have the folding option. I've listed them below to assist. MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp # MT70100 27x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier w/ 60" Pivoting Ramp # MT70275 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier...

  • There isn't a specific lock that you have to use with the MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70275. The recommended lock and anti-rattle device in one is # 63232. For a regular lock I recommend DeadBolt lock # 7683. I have included links to video reviews of both locks for you.

  • Will the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70275 Fit on a 2011 Honda Pilot Without Hatch Interference
  • I do not think you will have any interference problems with the rear hatch of your 2011 Honda Pilot and the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier, # MT70275, other than the ramp. We have not had the chance to test this MaxxTow carrier on a Pilot before, but to be sure, we can do some measuring. Starting at the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch, measure rearward 8-1/2 inches. At that distance, the side walls of this carrier will extend upward 7 inches from the top of the trailer hitch...

  • Frame-Mount RV Hitch with Weight Capacity to Handle Honda Generator and Hitch Carrier
  • Honda's 5500-watt generator model EU7000is weighs about 260-lbs. To carry this on an RV hitch using a hitch-mount carrier you need a hitch that can handle the combined tongue weight (TW) of the generator and the hitch carrier you prefer. Curt's adjustable RV hitch # 13703 has a TW rating of 350-lbs which does not change whether it is bolted on or welded on. This hitch is likely to just make it in terms of total required tongue weight capacity. Instead I recommend their RV hitch # C13704...

  • Can MaxxTow Aluminum Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Used at the Back of a Motor Home
  • Provided that your motor home has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver you can use the MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70275. Please note though that there is significantly more movement at the back of a motor home compared to a regular passenger vehicle, like riding at the back of a school bus. To reduce the stress on the hitch and the carrier I strongly recommend using a stabilization strap such as # 18050. Also make sure that the \anti-rattle device that comes with the carrier is secured.

Like the product you were looking at, this carrier also includes a built-in 60 inch long ramp for easy loading and unloading. This particular carrier does have the ability to completely pivot up alongside the rear of the vehicle for compact storage. The ramp can also be folded up into the carrier basket. This carrier has...
