This hitch carrier was perfect for my application. I used it to mount a generator and built an aluminum box around it so the tray for this or any other carrier would have just been extra that was not needed. I like the extra rise from the vehicle receiver for added clearance to the ground. 542190


Comments

Carrier continues to work great. For a little clarification it rides in the factory installed receiver hitch on my RV. I have still not seen anything that would have worked better.

Ask the Experts about this Lets Go Aero Hitch Cargo Carrier

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Load Limits on the Let's Go Aero Twin Tube Base System
  • 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. The TwinTube extends 18 inches, giving it a maximum distance of 55-3/4 inches when extended, and 37-3/4 inches when closed. The Boss Hog Cargo Carrier, part # H01472 has a...

  • 4-Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The 4-bike rack options for the rear of a 5th wheel trailer are a bit limited as the ride quality at the rear of a 5th wheel trailer is much rougher than that of a passenger vehicle so the bike racks have to be reinforced for this application. While we do have options that will work unfortunately none of them won't require lifting the bikes to load them like with the Yakima LongHaul part # Y02476 which does load relatively easy for a hanging bike rack. Instead of having to wrestle with...

  • Recommended Extra Large Cargo Carrier For 2002 Subaru Forester With 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The 72x32 Lets Go Aero GearCage FP6 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # H01397 is the largest capacity carrier we have. This is a really nice carrier with the rails that allow almost unlimited tie down options. This is quite a bit larger than the next biggest option and the best carrier in my opinion for your application. Another carrier I recommend is the 24x60 Surco Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Folding - 500 lbs # 52018F. This carrier has the ability...

  • Distance Between Rails of Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901
  • The distance between the rails or wings of the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 that you referenced is 10-1/8 inches. This was designed for similar applications to what you have so it should work well for you.

  • Determining Total Weight Load for Hitch Carrier Using U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack HMK901
  • The first thing to consider when using a hitch-mount carrier, or when building one from parts, is the total weight load you need to support. The Let's Go Aero U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 has a total weight capacity of 300-lbs. This means that everything you will put on it, from the roof-mount bike carriers to the bikes themselves to the scooter tray and the scooter itself too, must remain within this limit. Given the typical weights of scooters and bikes you may well...

  • Could Lets Go Aero Cargo Carrier part # HMK901 Allow Tailgate to Open
  • The distance between the hitch pin hole and the nearest edge of the rail on the Lets Go Aero Cargo Carrier part # HMK901 is 7 inches when slid as close to the rear of the truck as possible and then 25 when extended. This should be enough to clear a tailgate but it depends on the dimensions of the box relative to the closest railing.

  • How Easy Does Lets Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 Slide when Loaded
  • If you have the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 loaded up with 300 pounds then it will be fairly difficult to slide it in and out. The tubes aren't on rollers they are just steel tubes that slide over other steel tubes. You would likely have to lift up while pushing/pulling. Some lubrication would help.

  • Replacement TwinTube Slide-Out Needed for the GearSpace 34 Enclosed Cargo Carriers

  • What is the Exterior of the GearDeck 17 Enclosed Cargo Carrier Part # H00604 Made Of
  • I do have an option for you but the GearDeck 17 Enclosed Cargo Carrier part # H00604 is only offered with a polyethylene exterior. However, we do offer the base separately with part # HMK901 which you could then take to a metal fabricator once you sketch up the layout and I think you would be much more satisfied as you would have something made to your exact specifications. We have even had customers do exactly what is described above which you can see in the attached review.

  • Lets Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack Item # HMK901
  • The wall thickness of the steel used in the shank on the Lets Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 is between 1/8 and 3/16 of an inch. The tubes it slides on are at approximately 1/8 inch thick maximum. There can be some slight differences from one to the next due to the thickness of the powder coat.

  • Distance From Hitch Pin Hole to First Wing on Let's Go Aero TwinTube Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901
  • The distance from the center of the furthest hitch pin hole to the first wing on the Let's Go Aero Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 is 21-1/2 inches when it's slid as far back toward the rear of the vehicle as possible. This distance from the closest hitch pin hole is 19-1/4 inches. I have attached an image to assist.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier For Large Frame Mobility Scooter
  • We don't have a carrier with ramp that will allow for that big a scooter. Our biggest option is the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 60" Long Ramp - 2" Hitches - Folding - Steel - 500 lbs # MT70260. Your best option would be to use the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 and create something customized for your application. This carrier has a weight capacity of 300 lbs, so you would be able to use up to 50 lbs of materials for your custom carrier. This...

  • Can Cargo Box Overhang Let's Go Aero TwinTube Slide-Out Hitch Rack
  • I spoke with my contact at Lets Go Aero regarding the TwinTube U-Built-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 that you referenced and she stated that a little bit of overhang past the twin tubes on your box won't be an issue at all. She said that they actually have used larger boxes than your 28 inch x 48 inch x 22 inch unit on this particular rack. As long as you remain under the rack's 300 pound weight limit you are good to go. I did also confirm that you can indeed use the Anti-Rattle...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier Tool Box For Golf Clubs
  • To install a 60 inch tool box like the DeeZee Red Label 5th Wheel Toolbox - Wide, Utility Chest Style - Aluminum - 14.9 Cu Ft - Black # DZ8560WB to a receiver hitch on the back of your Class B Winnebago Aspect, I recommend using the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901. This will carry the toolbox as well as the golf clubs behind your RV. If you want to use a Cargo Carrier as the base, you can use the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 500 lbs...

  • Cargo Carrier That Will Allow Ram Promaster Rear Doors to Open
  • We have not yet had the chance to install the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack part # HMK901 on a Ram Promaster however I am happy to provide you with some measurements. The amount of rear door clearance with the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack on the 2014 Promaster will ultimately depend on what you tray or box you decide to mount on it and how much clearance you have from the top of the hitch to the bottom of your doors.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Cargo Mount For Custom Build Saddle Bag Cargo Carrier
  • For your custom build I recommend the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901. This will allow you to customize your saddle bag with center compartment build. It will also let you slide this out so you can have access to your cargo area without removing your system. I can picture this being a really cool system using something like the DeeZee Specialty Series Wheel Well Toolbox with Drawers - Steel - 1.9 Cu Ft - Black # DZ95D between the saddle bags.

  • Does Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 Include LED Light Kit
  • The Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 referenced in your question does indeed come with an LED light kit along with a 4-Way harness that will plug right into a 4-Way on the vehicle. I actually went out to our warehouse and looked through the assembly to verify this. The red caps at the end of the base tubes are just reflectors like you mentioned but there are 2 additional LED lights that can be mounted to the unit as well.

  • Will Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 Fit on 2014 Subaru Outback
  • Yes, as long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2014 Subaru Outback the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 is going to easily clear the bumper and fit. It actually has two hitch pin holes to give you more flexibility and clearance if needed. One is 7 inches from the center of the pin hole to nearest part of the rack and the other one is 4-3/4 inches.

  • Flat Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Ford Edge
  • As long as you have a hitch installed on your 2013 Ford Edge like the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75992 we have cargo carriers that would work for your vehicle. We don't have a flat one with removable sides, but we do have a cargo carrier that does not have any sides at all like Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack, # HMK901.

  • Recommended Locking Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • I recommend using the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset for 2" Trailer Hitches # 63201 with a Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver. This locking anti-rattle pin is made specifically for the Draw-Tite Hitches and is the reason why there is a second hole on the hitch receiver. This J-pin will pull the accessory snug by pushing on the outside edge of the accessory shank. This will work well with either the Draw-Tite # 76171 or concealed cross tube option # 76170 which are...
