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 vehicle's interior.


Thanks to a front-mounted handle, you can fold the Dart up against your vehicle 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 vehicle'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.

Video Transcript for Rola Dart Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2013 Ford F-150

Today on our 2013 Ford F150 well be test fitting the 23 x 56 Rola Dart cargo carrier, part number 59550. To begin our test fit, well slide shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, line up our pin holes, thread our anti-rattle bolt through the pin holes and tighten with a wrench. Now well go over a handful of clearance measurements to see how the cargo carrier and this vehicle will fit together. With the cargo carrier folded up there is about 17 inches of ground clearance. The closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier is about four and a half inches. And weve added about 13 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.

With the cargo platform folded down we have about 22 inches of ground clearance from the rear of the carrier. The closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier is about six inches. Weve added about 38 inches to the overall length of the vehicle. The tailgate will rest about one and a half inches over the surface of the cargo carrier. That completes todays test fit for 23 x 56 Rola Dart cargo carrier, part number 59550 on our 2013 Ford F150..

Product seems tough. EZ to put together. EZ to fold up and down using the handle. License plate holders pre drilled. When down license plate visible. When folded up will have to move plate. 546685


Comments

Bought the cargo carrier Rola. It has worked well on the 2 long distance trips we took. One problem is the license plate. When platform is down no prob on visibility for license plate, when folded up license not visible. Otherwise the rola dart carrier has been great.

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

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

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

Well, shucks, it has been standing in the garage ever since so every indication is that it will last and maintain it's appearance forever. I was 'rear-ended' in my 4Runner while making a perfectly legal and proper U-turn by a car that was also rear-ended - by a truck that sped off (left the scene) into the extremely 'dark & rainy' nite. The front of the car that hit me was pretty much destroyed by the impact. Damn shame, wasn't her fault! The 4Runner sustained no damage but the Rola, which was 'upright at the time, lost quite a bit of plastic trim and got bend a bit. Since it was near winter at the time I left the Rola on the vehicle, intending to replace it with the new one . . . Haven't got around to it yet as it is again winter (and a nasty winter at that.) Lest anyone be too impressed by this story - the Rola was, in fact, purchased as much for it's 'bull bar' capabilities as for it's utility - it is rather disappointing as to finish durability, tending to rust rapidly. It has been very satisfactory with regard to it's utility and protective characteristics. I will coat the new one of my with my proven rust preventatives (LPS3. Cosmoline or Penetrol) accordingly when I install it. Season's wishes to y'all . . . 595796

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.

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

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

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



- 59550
by:

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

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

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

by:

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

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?


  • 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...

  • There are a number of cargo carriers with at least 4 inches of rise, but they do have different dimensions and weight capacities; I'll go over the options so you can find what you need in terms of not only rise, but the amount of cargo you want to carry and the size of the carrier you are looking for. The Surco # 52018F has a 4 inch shank rise and has the most weight capacity at 500 lbs and is the largest carrier among this group, measuring 60" long x 24" wide x 5-1/2" deep. Light kit...

  • Recommended Cargo Net for the 23x56 Rola Dart Cargo Carrier
  • For the 23x56 Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 I recommend using the Stretch Net # Y07018 which measures 55" long x 21" wide untstretched and is designed for the Yakima SkinnyWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07014 which measures 58" long x 23" wide. There isn't a net designed specifically for the Rola Dart which is why the Stratch Net is your best option. Attached is a photo of this net on the SkinnyWarrior that you can use as a reference.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

The hitch-mounted carrier we offer with the largest rise on the shank is the Rola Dart # 59550. The shank rise for this carrier is 4-1/2 inches.

For this cargo carrier no locking pin is available, but you can easily secure the carrier to your hitch simply by installing a cable lock that can be routed through the carrier and the safety chain loops on your hitch.

  • Rola offers a folding carrier, part # 59550 that's compatible with the # 59516 light kit.

The only issue that you may encounter is that when we installed the trailer hitch on a 2016 Renegade we saw that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rearmost part of the bumper measured 7".

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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. The most common cargo bag that gets used with this cargo carrier...

  • Would 23x56 Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 Cause Hatch Opening Interference on 2007 Honda Element
  • If the 23x56 Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 is empty and installed in the Draw-Tite part # 75659 of your 2007 Honda Element you would have no problem opening the rear hatch. Although this rack has a rise to it, the carrier is far enough away from the hatch that it would not interfere. Check out the review video I attached that shows this carrier demoed on a similar vehicle as yours. The Rola Dart Clamp-On Fork Mount Bike Carrier # 59904 would be an excellent add on for this carrier...

  • In order to determine if the Surco 24X60 Cargo Carrier # 52018F will fold up a single measurement is needed.

This Surco cargo carrier is designed to fit a 2 inch receiver opening and when it is folded up it measures 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of...

  • Hitch and Wiring For Cargo Carrier With Lights On 2020 Hyundai Palisade
  • I recommend Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13427 to carry the cargo carrier on the 2020 Palisade. This is a great option because it's a concealed cross tube design which will look nice on your brand new 2020 Palisade. The only portion of the hitch that will be visible once installed is the receiver tube. To power the lights on a cargo carrier, you need T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package part # 118784 which will plug into the factory harness behind the vehicle's...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2015 Mercedes Sprinter
  • To determine if the Rola Dart # 59550 or any cargo carrier will fit your 2015 Mercedes Sprinter when the carrier is folded there is just one measurement you will need to take. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that distance is less than 7 inches, the Rola Dart will fit when folded up. I have included a link to a help article that shows how to take the measurement and a link to a video review of the...

  • Fit of Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 for 2012 Toyota 4Runner
  • To determine if the Rola # 59550 Folding Cargo Carrier will work on your 2012 4Runner, you'll need to take a quick measurement as outlined in the FAQ article I've linked for you. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole rearward until you clear the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 7 inches (which it should be), then the carrier will fit perfectly. I haven't received any specific reports about the carrier being unsteady when folded, but...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Bike Carrier, And Cargo Carrier For 2016 Acura RDX
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2016 RDX is the Draw-Tite, part # 75784. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening.
