Video Transcript for MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2" hitches, part number MT70107. The MaxxTow Cargo Carrier is an economic way to increase your carrying capacity. It's a great solution for carrying wet and soiled gear on the outside of your vehicle while freeing up more room inside your vehicle for passengers and pets.Compared to other cargo carriers, this one has an open rail design floor, as opposed to the mesh floor. It's going to be a lot easier to keep clear of any dirt or debris or road grime. There is about a 4" gap between each rail, so you do lose your capacity to carry smaller items, but on a plus side, the rails do give us plenty of options for tie downs.When choosing a tie down, you'll want to note that the rails are 1" by 1" thick. We have plenty of options here at etrailer.com.Most cargo carriers of this size have a weight capacity of around 300 pounds.

This one has a weight capacity of 500 pounds. If you like the smaller size carrier, but want the higher weight rating, this would be a great option.Another great feature is it only weighs about 32 pounds, as opposed to its counterpart that weighs about 71 pounds. This makes it way easier to install by yourself. The larger carrier may require two people.It comes with a 5/8 hitch pin and clip for your 2" by 2" receiver. If you'd like, you can pick up the MaxxTow trailer hitch receiver lock, with part number MT70050.

This will prevent any thieves from removing your MaxxTow Cargo Carrier or any other MaxxTow accessories from your trailer hitch receiver.Here at the rear, it features two reflectors. These are going to help it remain more visible at night.Its inside dimensions are 51 3/4" long, 17 3/4" wide, and 4 1/8" deep. Its outside dimensions are 53 3/8" long, 19 1/4" wide, and 5" deep.To give you an idea of how it's going to work with your vehicle, the distance from the center of the hitch man hole to the closest part of the carrier is about 6 1/2".While some carriers have the option to fold up against for vehicle for more clearance at the rear, this one is going to be a lot sturdier because it has less moving parts. On a plus side, since it is lightweight, we can simply remove it if we'd like that clearance.Like most carriers, it has a sturdy steel construction with a black powder coat finish, so it's going to stand up to the elements.It comes with all the hardware you need to assemble it. Please note, you'll want to be sure to install all of your hardware loosely, and then tighten them all down.

This way, all of the holes line up properly.A comparable cargo carrier in the same price range would be the Curt 17 by 46 cargo carrier, part number C18145. They both look similar, with the same open floor design. The MaxxTow is only for 2" inches, whereas the Curt is for 1 1/4" and 2" inches, but with the Curt, when used with an 1 1/4" hitch, it drops the weight capacity to 300 pounds. The MaxxTow is going to be about 3" wider, allowing for just a little more cargo. The MaxxTow has two reflectors, whereas the Curt only has one.Now we can load up some cargo, and strap it down, and take it out on our test course, and see how it performs.Here on the test course, let's first go into our inaudible 00:03:30.

This is going to show side to side action such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a parking lot or out of a driveway. Finally, onto our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over potholes or uneven pavement.That's going to complete our look at the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2" hitches, part number MT70107.

I actually purchased this luggage basket for my husband for fathers day. Even though I waited until the Mon prior to I still got the shipment by the next Mon. That was good!! My husband likes it although we haven't used it yet. We are going to the Smokey Mountains, July 7th and we will be taking our granddaughter and one of our dogs in our jeep wrangler. I'm excited that we have this product to use and I will let you know how it works! Thankful for extra rm in the jeep Yvonne Reynolds 267121

This quality of this product far exceeds its price. After reading some reviews about holes not lining up and hardware just thrown into the box I was slightly skeptical, BUT this product was very well packaged, all the hardware was in a nice little bag, and the box was very sturdy. When assembling it, if you hand tighten all the bolts first, all of the holes line up perfectly with no problems. I was surprised by the quality and strength of the bars. The ONLY thing i could see that would improve this product would be that it would be difficult for someone to replace the reflectors with a lighting kit of some sorts. The holes are 2 inches on center for the reflectors and most brake, stop, tail trailer lights do not come in this size. This is by far, in my opinion, the best bang for your buck cargo carrier on the market. 510541

While it seems sturdy , it will be hard to fully evaluate the product since the screw hole do not line up. I will have to re drill the holes to make it work. I did read the previous reviews by other customers and most seemed positive. When you pay for a product it should work , I should charge them to have to make my product work as advertised. There probably will be a follow up remark by someone from there office saying that the product went to together perfectly, don't believe it 214118

This was my second order from eTrailer. The first was great, fast delivery, great product, etc. This order, a trailer hitch cargo carrier wasnt so good. The hardware is just thrown in the box with no packaging, so with a small tear in the box resulted in two missing hex nuts. I had to buy a couple matching nuts at the hardware store. After assembly, I noticed the hitch receiver holes were not centered which resulted in the entire carrier sitting lopsided with the left side a very noticeable 4 inches higher than the rights side. I will re-drill the holes properly, but it would be nice if the quality control was part of the paid price. I think this will be the last time I buy from eTrailer, knowing the QC is lacking. Really, how much is a baggie to put the hardware in? And how hard is it to line up two holes? 133484


Comments

We definitely understand the frustration of missing hardware and we will be in touch with you. We will also provide the feedback for Maxx Tow, the manufacturer of this carrier, to see.

UPDATE: I previously rated this product and after being contacted by eTrailer for the problems that I had with this product, their customer service representative Nikki, contacted me and went out of her way to fix the problem that I had with the alignment of a couple of the holes. Nikki had MaxXTow send me the new part and stayed on top of the transaction with updates and emails. The carrier is exactly what I ordered and fits perfect. Ive never experienced customer service like this and the next time I order a product that is in eTrailers product line, I can guarantee they have my business.Thank you, Nikki!

Just returned from the Outerbanks and used the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler. At first we were concerned about the amount of movement in the hitch receiver after it was installed, but once it was loaded down there was no issue. No issues with it not clearing the spare tire (with nothing in it), or covering the taillights with the Rola bag we bought for it filled up. Overall we were very pleased. It worked great! 204291

Easy assembly. Great weight rating, better than others in its class. Small enough to fit behind my vehicle but large enough for a fair amount of cargo 509700



- MT70107
by:

Box came undamaged. All hardware ( bolts nuts and washers were loose in the box. Box was fully of sand. Cross bars for the top needed to be drilled since the factory holes did not line up. In reality I paid for what I got. Other than that it seems it will full fill it's intended use although it was a hassle. 437907



- MT70107
by:

Easy to assemble and showed up in great condition! When installed on the vehicle, the basket seems to rock side to side a little more than expected so that worries me a little. Overall, the the price was great and should serve its purpose. Because of the rocking movement, I doubt I will try to load it to its full capacity just to be on the safe side. We only intend to use this as an overflow space for items that won't fit in our car anyway so Im sure it will get the job done :-) 658340

by:

Top Holes did not line up.i had to drill the holes bigger,the 2 inch male end that fits to the 2 inch hitch is a good bit smaller which makes for a wobbly cargo carrier,i will have to shim it,it is still a good deal and built solid,i will be using it to carry camping gear and it will be attached to the camper 595393


Comments

Instead of using a shim you can always use an anti-wobble such as roadmaster quiet hitch for 2 inch hitches part RM-061. This part will tighten up the space between the shank and the hitch opening.

Just received it but have not had a chance to use it yet. Went together easily. Like others the hardware bag was broken and I was missing one washer which i replaced easily from my own supply. Fits great on my Jeep Wrangler. Tailgate opens fully with nothing in the basket and the full basket is available for use - no interference from the spare tire. 518723

Etrailer has great prices and what appears to be good products. the welds on the storage rack looked very good, much better than [local retailer] who sells a similar item at a similar price. However I did lower the stars because it was missing one nut in the kit. Not a big deal, but still a hassle to go get one. Also, I've been spoiled by 2 day shipping with [site]. That being said, they did ship my items in a timely fashion and I got them when they said I would. I will def consider etrailer in the future when I need something. 359766

Had a lot of opportunity to buy this product from other vendors. Glad I decided on E Trailer. They took the time to look at shipping rates, and found they could send to me PRIORITY, at no addition cost. Got it a lot sooner than expected. I liked the commitment to service after the sale, got a follow up email asking about my satisfaction, and a name and phone number to use if I had any issues. Still have to assemble the product, but if it is an issue, I know I will get help in solving it. 302034

Quickly delivered and easy to assemble. Perfect for my 2012 Jeep Wrangler. The low profile allows the rear gate and spare tire to clear the sides of the carrier when not in use. Also purchased an 8" hitch extender to provide additional space between the exhaust and the carrier. I am very happy with it. 216440

by:

Carrier worked well. By putting the luggage outside the car, we've now got enough room in the car to bring our dog along on trips. It was silent and stable when used with a Roadmaster Quiet Hitch rm-061. Capacity was just right to hold suitcases and strollers without extending past the edges of our smallish SUV (BMW X3). Two minor quibbles: Several of the bolt heads (marked 8.8, metric) are out of tolerance; neither Metric nor SAE tools fit well, so I used an adjustable wrench. Secondly, I wish there were more vertical elements along the frame rails to function as anchor points for ratcheting tie-downs. 211391

Ordered this for my 2015 Ford Escape. I like it because it does not extend beyond the width of the vehicle. It's sturdy but also lightweight. I purchased a couple of the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch for 2" Trailer Hitches - RM-061 to help lock it down. Scratches easily. Assembly was quick and straight forward. Would recommend as a value buy. Exactly what I was looking for. 201510

  • Trailer-Tongue-Mounted Cargo Tray for A-Frame Trailer
  • We do offer trailer-mounted cargo control items such as tool boxes and racks for propane tanks, shown on the linked page, and we also have a tray from Stromberg Carlson, their Trailer Tray Cargo Carrier # CC-255, that mounts to an a-frame trailer tongue. This cargo tray measures 20 x 32-inches and offers a weight capacity of 300-lbs. A nice benefit of this elevated design is that you can install this tray along with other trailer-mounted cargo items, depending on their size. We also offer...

  • How to Use a Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier on a 2017 Honda CR-V
  • To use the Maxx Tow 17 x 50 carrier, part # MT70107, you'll need a few things to get started. First, you'll need to pick a Class III hitch. Without getting into too much detail, the hitch class determines the available capacity of the hitch. This is always limited by the weakest part of the system, so you'll want to verify your 2017 Honda CR-V's tongue weight and trailer weight limits with your owner's manual. I've included a link to a short article that shows the type of things that...

I attached a video that shows this. Fast forward to the 30 second mark to see the door open with the carrier installed. This cargo carrier has a 500 lb capacity.

The gross towing weight of this extender is 4,000 lbs which isn't enough for 95% of vehicles. I recommend using the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 4" Drop/Rise # RM-077-4.

  • Hitch Mounted Carrier To Carry 20-Lb Propane Tank
  • We do have carriers like part # MT70107 for a trailer hitch but they are designed to be used for cargo. You would need to make sure you secure the propane tank really well so it does not fall or have a chance of falling out of the carrier. Also, you may want to check with the authorities to see if it is legally permissible to carry propane in a hitch mounted carrier. It would be bad if the rear of your vehicle were involved in an accident.

You will need to do some modifications to get the tanks to securely attach to the carrier in an upright position, and that is something I won't be able to tell you exactly how to do. But this carrier has a 500 lb capacity so it would work well assuming you have a hitch on your vehicle that has a tongue weight capacity that is higher than the weight of this carrier...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler that Allows Rear Door to Open
  • I have a solution for you, but when we test fit the Pro Series Cargo Carrier part # 63153 on a similar Wrangler as yours we found that it was too tall to allow the rear door to open. Instead I would recommend the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70107 as it will clear the spare. Check out the review video I attached to see that it allow the spare to open.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt Folding Cargo Carrier part # C18153 that you referenced should work well on your 2015 Wrangler and clear the spare when folded up. If you check out the video I attached you will see that this carrier will clear the spare when folded up and will allow the rear gate to open slightly when the carrier is folded down. It should work well for you.

  • Cargo Bag Recommendation for a MaxxTow Spare Tire Cargo Carrier
  • The spare tire cargo carrier part # MT70107 that you referenced has a platform that measures 17 inches by 50 inches internally. For a cargo bag that would fit these dimensions the Rola part # 59102 would work great as it measures 48 inches long by 19 inches wide. This bag is considered weather proof meaning that in normal inclement type weather the contents would stay dry, but if you happened to be driving in a hurricane most likely the inside would get wet.

  • Cargo Carrier Options/Recommendations for a 1999 Jeep Wrangler
  • If you check out the review video I attached you can see the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70107 being installed on a similar 2004 Jeep Wrangler as your 1999 model and that it fits and works well. Another option you have is a spare tire mounted cargo carrier like Surco Spare-Tire-Mounted Cargo Basket # SPSJ4319. Also I attached a review video that shows this rack being used on a 1999 Jeep Wrangler.

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a Class II Trailer Hitch
  • There are adapters available to use the MaxxTow 17x50 Cargo Carrier for 2 Inch Hitches, # MT70107, with the Class II trailer hitch on your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but I have a better solution for you. I do not recommend using trailer hitch adapters because the will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50 percent. This will limit the amount of cargo that you can carry. Instead, I recommend looking at the Curt 20x48 Cargo Carrier, # C18110. This cargo carrier...

  • Recommended Lightweight Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Your 2010 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited could have either of two hitch sizes installed, either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or a 2-inch Class III hitch. You'll want to confirm which hitch size you have and also take a measurement of the back of the Jeep to see how much clearance you need for a carrier to clear you spare tire and bumper. The linked articles on hitches will help you confirm which type and size you have and the linked articles on cargo carriers will help you consider your options and...

  • Can a Cargo Carrier be Used on a Bumper Mount Hitch to Carry Generators on an RV
  • If you plan on carrying generators I would not use a bumper mounted hitch. The fact that the bumper is rated for a bike carrier says to me that you don't want to put anything else on it. A loaded bike carrier isn't all that heavy. But a cargo carrier with generators on it can create a lot of stress. A frame mounted hitch should be used. I included a link to the frame mount RV hitches we carry. Regarding how far out the basket would be on a bumper mounted hitch it depends on the hitch....

  • Can a Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Used at the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer for Generator
  • I do have a solution for you but our contacts over at Pro Series have recently told us that the cargo carriers they manufacture, including # 63153, are not rated for use behind a 5th wheel trailer. MaxxTow has said that their cargo carriers can be used at the back of an RV or trailer. They have several options for flat, fixed carriers in steel like # MT70107 and aluminum. There is much more movement at the back of your 5th wheel trailer than on a vehicle so you will want to make the...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Sport
  • I am not sure why MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70107 wouldn't work on a 2014 or 2015 Jeep Wrangler. It works fine on a 2013 when we tested it and the 2013 models are the same generation as the 2014 and 2015 models. Curt carrier # C18153 is less likely to work because it has a rise in the shank. Carriers with a straight shank like the MaxxTow or Curt carrier # C18145 are the better options, see video links. But if you are using a larger spare tire than stock and/or have a hitch integrated...

  • Cargo Carrier to Fit Front and Rear Hitch on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler with Curt Hitches Installed
  • If you check out the review video I attached you can see the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70107 being installed on a similar Jeep Wrangler as your 2015 model and that it fits and works well. If you wanted to install this in a front hitch on your vehicle that would be possible, but you would need to consider the fact that it may block headlights and/or radiator air flow. Another option you have is a spare tire mounted cargo carrier like Surco Spare-Tire-Mounted Cargo Basket # SPSJ4319....

  • Equipment Needed to Use the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70107 with a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13153 is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe as long as it is an SE or Limited. For wiring (if that is what you meant at the end) you will need the Curt T-Connector # C56184 since you don't have the factory tow package. To mount the 4-Way you can use brackets # 18144 and # 18140. The 52x18 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70107 is a great choice for a cargo carrier. Both the MaxxTow Cargo Bag # MT70209 and the Rola Expandable Cargo Bag # 59102 are...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV that Allows Rear Door to Open
  • I have a solution for you, but if you check out the demo video I attached for the # 63153 you will see that the railing of the carrier does interfere with the door opening all the way on a very similar Honda CR-V as yours. Instead the part # MT70107 will allow your rear door to open. I attached a demo video for this carrier as well that shows that it can.

  • Can Trailer Be Towed Behind Hitch Mounted Cargo Basket On 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • If your jet ski trailer has a very long tongue, you may be able to use something like the MaxxTow Ball Mount with 2 inch Accessory Receiver, part # MT70066. One thing to consider when using a ball mount like this is the basket sitting so far back and interfering with the trailer, preventing it from being able to execute a turn without hitting the basket. We do not offer any cargo carriers that have the hitch receiver to allow towing. The added stress of a trailer along with the carrier...

  • Recommendations for 2014 Hyundai Tucson and Maxxtow Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The 52x18 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 500 lbs # MT70107 is a nice carrier, but it sounds like you must have a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver on your 2014 Hyundai Tucson. A hitch expander like # HES6 will work, but will limit the tongue weight of your hitch by 50% and greatly limit your capacity to carry cargo because the weight of the carrier also must be calculated in that equation. My recommendation is to upgrade your hitch to the Draw-Tite Max-E-Loader Trailer Hitch...
