GearCage4 cargo carrier

The GearCage4 cargo carrier lets you transport your gear on the back of your vehicle. The carrier opens up space inside your vehicle, so you can pack more gear or travel with extra passengers. The carrier sits on a TwinTube platform that extends away from your vehicle so you have access to your rear cargo area. It also has raised side rails that contain your gear and provide tie-down points, 2 anti-rattle hitch pins that reduce the noise of the carrier in your hitch and in the TwinTube base rail, and reflectors that increase visibility.

Raised Side Rails

GearCage4 cargo carrier raised side walls

The carrier has raised side rails that help to keep your cargo in place. The rails also provide multiple anchor points for a cargo net, bungee straps, or other tie-downs.

Easy Assembly and Durable Construction

GearCage4 cargo carrier underside

The carrier is easy to assemble. Simply bolt together with included hardware. The basket is made of heavy-duty steel, has a rust-resistant black powder coat finish, and sports an easy-to-clean solid steel floor. The solid steel floor does better keeping road grime and dirt off your cargo than similar carriers with a mesh bottom floor.

Anti-Rattle Hitch Pins

GearCage4 cargo carrier anti rattle hitch pin

The GearCage4 includes 2 Silent Hitch Pins to prevent rattling and movement in the trailer hitch receiver and theTwinTube base. Each pin features a sturdy steel block with an attached spring that sits inside the square tubing. To activate the anti-rattle devices just insert and tighten each pin. The first pin inserts through the hitch pin hole, the second pin is placed in the passenger-side TwinTube base rail. You can also add locks (ACC3250 - sold separately) to each Silent Hitch Pin to secure the carrier to your vehicle.

Integrated Reflectors


To keep you visible and safe the GearCage4 has integrated reflectors on the right and left sides of the TwinTube. You can also add an LED light kit (H01540 - sold separately) to provide stop, turn, and tail light functions to increase visibility.

Very pleased with how fast the item was shipped. I placed the order and several hours later I received an email that it had already shipped. I have not been able to put it together yet but plan on it In the next couple of days. I would definitely recommend this item and ordering any other item from here. Keep up the good service! Thank you and God bless ! AJR 503585

I like the trailer. I use it in my travel back and forth once a year between Florida and Maryland. The only criticism I have is that many of the nuts and bolts, but strangely not all, have rusted. 576137

I received my Hauler promptly as stated when ordered. Was also followed up from E Trailer.com about my order. I assembled the hauler with no problems, (you just have to read and look at the pictures) on the directions very good.( I'll also state I was an Army engineer fro 13 years) But, it's not hard at all. I haven't installed it yet as we will be sitting until March, but it looks, feels, and is the best I've seen. I've had a couple in the past and this is by far the strongest i've seen. We plan on hauling a 4K genset on the rear of our 5Th Wheel. It will a be permanent fixture as we need power as we roll. Now the only thing I have to figure out is how to use my hitch mount flag pole holder with the hauler. the rear is open and but the opening is the same size as my holder. (need a sleeve). The hauler has a completely closed bottom (3 piece) to keep the road grime off your belongings. I haven't taken pictures yet but will add some when I hook it up. Overall, It looks, and appears to be a Great product. I would suggest this or the longer version of this. Mine is 32x48. They offer a longer model too. 235085

It works great. Still holding up to our bumpy roads behind my 5th Wheel camper. I only wish that I would have purchased the 72 width and not the 48 width .

Review for Lets Go Aero Gear Cage FP4 Used on 2015 Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition Excellent Product! This thing is huge and carries my Yeti Tundra 65 long ways plus several other items with ease. We have used it for a camping trip and cross country travel without any issues. With the pull away feature we are able to open the rear hatch on the 4Runner no matter what is on the carrier. One note: I added the Thinline LED Trailer Tail Lights to this as I did not want to have lights that were hanging down like the Lets Go Aero lights. I only experience two very minor issues with this cargo carrier: First issue was the instructions were not super clear, and there was quite a bit of information crammed onto one piece of paper. Some people may have an issue with this. It took me a few minutes of pouring over it before I was comfortable starting assembly. The second was that I was not aware there were 2 separate bags of hardware, and the second was actually upgraded hardware. I had already assembled the platform when I realized this. So, I may go back and use the upgraded hardware sometime if I have any issues. Fit and finish of the product were perfect, and eTrailer.com's shipping and support have been second to none. I cannot recommend them enough. 443669

We love the Lets Go Aero Gear Cage Cargo Carrier and the service we have gotten from etrailer.com. Since purchasing this carrier, we have used it for several off road and on road adventures from the Appalachians to the Rocky Mountains to the desert of West Texas. We have beaten it on rocks and carried firewood, chairs, coolers, food boxes, stoves, and tons of other camping equipment on it without an issue. We did get the chance to meet the people at Lets Go Aero in Colorado Springs this year. While we were there, we picked up a TwinTube UBI Slideout Hitch Mount Rack to upgrade our Gear Cage. This lifts the base by 6 and has made a huge difference in our off road clearance. I can gladly recommend this product.

It came with an upgraded parts to replace some of the included screws. It took for a while to figure out which parts are not needed for assembly. This carrier is quite heavy to lift by one person. I managed to do it by myself, but it's much easier with two person to put it on hitch. I may need to use some sort of floor jack to lift up if I have to do it by myself again. Taking it off from hitch was much easier if I unhook wire cable and slid out the carrier first, then remove U-shaped hitch bar separately. Since hitch position of my van (Toyota Sienna) is low, cargo carrier is very close to road (~4") when go in & out of driveway. I was looking into getting hitch rise adapter first, but looks like using hitch extender would reduce max tongue weight. So I am going to purchase Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack (HMK901) and use the raised tube to gain road clearance. 547651

I used this hitch carrier several times to transport lots of items for our two college kids between LA and Sacramento, and I love it! It not only has more capacity than Yakima roof rack we have, but also doesnt affect fuel efficiency like roof rack did! Im glad that I swapped TwinTube to increase road clearance.

Assembly took some time and you have to pay attention to what bolt length goes where but it's a solid product that is holding up well.. 678028

Product worked great with matching gear bag. Only used it once but it made it through snow and ice on the way to Colorado just fine. Looking forward to use it again on the next road trip. 601491

- H01380

I've only taken this out once as of this writing. But, very happy with this product. I was able to put a ton of stuff into this. I also got the gear bag 4, which was super handy, it adds a few more bucks to the order, but was well worth it. Made locking down the cargo super easy. The slide out feature was great for the dogs as well. My biggest complaint (reason for 4 not 5 stars) was it took a long time (2 plus hours) to build and the instructions were not obvious. I had a ton of bolts left over, not sure why. 427528

  • Best Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack Combination for a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter Camper Van
    Using the Lets Go Aero GearCage FP4 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier # H01380 along with the Lets Go Aero Rack-IT # H01199 is a great solution for carrying cargo and bikes. The only other option that you may be interested in is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 # B01458 and the AerPack Cargo Bag # B01212. The big difference is that the cargo carrier option has a weight capacity of 300 lbs while the cargo back has a weight capacity of 120 lbs. The advantage of using the T4 is that you can use it to...

  • Hitch Lock and Cargo Net for Use with Lets Go Aero Cargo Carrier part # H01380
    The Lets Go Aero Cargo Carrier part # H01380 that you referenced does come with threaded anti-rattle hitch pins so you would not be able to reuse the hitch lock you have now. But to convert the hitch pins to a locking setup you'd need the part # ACC3250. The Curt stretchable cargo net part # C18202 would be a really great option for securing the cargo you mentioned to the carrier.

  • Will Rear Tailgate of 2019 Jeep Wrangler Open with H01380 Let's Go Aero Cargo Carrier Installed
    With the # H01380 enclosed carrier installed, you'll be able to partially open the rear door by a few inches, but the exact amount will depend on the spare tire mounted to the tailgate. You can determine exactly how far you'll be able to open the door by measuring 26 inches rearward from the hitch pin hole in the hitch receiver tube. Then, have a helper hold up a straight edge like a piece of lumber at that point while you open the tailgate. This will give you a pretty accurate indication...

    If your vehicle trailer hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening then you can use the 48x32 Lets Go Aero GearCage FP4 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs Item # H01380. For some reason, some OEM hitches will call a hitch with a 2 inch receiver a Class II even though a Class II hitch is supposed to have a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I believe that in those cases the Class rating only refers to the different tow packages available on some vehicles and that is likely where...

    To use the Let's Go Aero cargo carrier # H01380 you would need a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver on your 2015 Subaru Forester. I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75876. This hitch is rated for 525 pounds tongue weight. But you will need to consult the Forester owner's manual for its tongue weight capacity. Whichever is lower, the hitch or the vehicle, is the capacity you need to go by. The carrier weighs 70 pounds so when calculating how much weight you have in...

    The 48x32 Lets Go Aero GearCage FP4 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier # H01380 that you referenced has a distance of 6 inches from it's hitch pin hole to the nearest edge of the cargo tray. The bike rack adapter part # H01199 attaches to this same railing. The rack itself does not reduce the clearance, but since the inner bike rack installs on the inside of the upright mast of the rack it's really up to the dimensions of the bike how much clearance would be reduced.

However, if you need to carry both bikes and extra cargo I do still have options for you; the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier part # HR1450Z-85 or the Lets Go Aero GearCage part # H01380 with the Lets Go Aero Rack-IT part # H01199.

    The Let's Go Aero TwinTube Cargo Carrier, part # HMK901 is rated to carry up to 300 pounds in any position. This is true of all of the products that use the TwinTube system as their base. This rating is to provide for appropriate support from the minimum Class III hitch that the carrier will be loaded in.
