Pretty solid unit, lots of nuts and bolts. Instructions could use a bit of help. Make sure everything is oriented correctly before assembling. I also installed the brackets inside the unit instead of outside.I used stainless hardware everywhere I could. That's just me. The light kit, Rola LED Light Kit for Railed Cargo Carriers - 59516 along with the Trailer Light Mounting Bracket for 6-1/2" Oval Trailer Lights, Steel - Black Powder Coat - BK70BB is a nice add-on. It took some retooling of the upper rear cross-member to properly fit brackets and lights to my liking. No cob-jobbing here. removed the top rear cross-member, removed parts of the flange, the brackets and light kit bolted right up level and tight. Had to move a couple of brackets also, no big deal. Don't know if a flat bracket is available, that would be ideal. All in all I am very satisfied. Dealing with etrailer always cake. Check out the pictures.


Comments
Used it quite a few times. I use a hitch tightener to eliminate rattles. Received several compliments on the light kit. All in all it has performed admirably. No issues with exhaust heat either. Get one.

Never assembled one of these b4 and it was a lot easier than expected! I read reviews first and did not follow directions either. I looked it over and it is easier if u install base first and use washers both top and bottom and put vertical braces on the inside. Will be more rigid. (Retired Mech. Eng)

The product I ordered is wonderful. Lightweight and is large enough to carry my scuba tanks and wet gear which I had NO intention of placing in my new Infiniti. It arrived quickly and took about 40 minutes by myself to put together. Customer service answered all my questions and the whole transaction was painless and professional. if I ever need another trailer, etrailer is the place I will purchase from.

I love this cargo carrier. It's all aluminum (except for the hitch mount) and extremely well made. I'll use it with my class B motorhome and my pick up truck when I need to take additional cargo.

by:

Easy assembly. Easy to understand instructions. Assembly took a little longer than I expected, only due to a lot of screws and bolts to tighten. This is my third purchase from etrailers, and I highly recommend them. Customer Service is great as well.

I was able to assemble the carrier, without issue last night. This morning, I mounted it on the CRV and took it on a ride... I was concerned about an heat issue from the car exhaust. I drove about 5-8 miles and did not notice any warm on the carrier. I stopped at my car service shop, he noticed that the exhaust was being directed downward, not at the carrier


Comments
Thank you for your review. If the exhaust were too close the carrier you could redirect it downward using an exhaust tip. I have attached a link to all of the turndown tips we offer. You will need to know the diameter of the exhaust pipe.

We have used our MaxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier many times in the past year, with complete satisfaction. Through a variety of loads and in some cases heavy rains it performed as expected each time. Also, connecting it to and removing it from the hitch was easy. I would buy this product again.



- MT70108
by:

Nice finished product, but involves a lot of assembly using small bolts and lock nuts. If I were to do it again, I would attach the hitch tube before attaching the upper frame to the lower frame. Following the sequence in the instruction manual hinders your ability to square up a screw driver which is needed to tighten the bolts and lock nuts. I had to run to the local hardware store to replace 4 of 8 bolts and lock nuts because I stripped the bolt head while trying to tighten them. Otherwise, a really nice product.

As good as when I bought it a year ago.

Nice carrier. Instructions for putting together the unit are JUNK. Ignore the instructions and use common sense. Make sure you orient the top and bottom to install the reflectors. Install the supports and bracing on the inside of the unit not the outside as the picture shows on the box. Maximum support would be to install the supports on the inside. Keep all screws somewhat loose until you install all supports. Start in one place with the supports and work your way around the unit in order to keep all holes properly aligned. I installed the supports with the lines facing outward to match the lines on the top and bottom. Ace Hardware carries a bar handle (like used in placing 2x4 across a door). This can be attached to the name plate on the rear with 1/4x20 bolts and then use the battery powered light from etrailer to place a magnetic light on the rear of the carrier. That way, you can attach the light when necessary. Snug up all screws once the supports and bracing are in place.


Comments
Nice unit. Looks good and holds up well under use.

by:

My order arrived on time as initially projected. Assembly took only an hour and was made easier by reading recent customer feedback. Prior customer feedback suggesting orienting brackets with stripes facing out while mounting on the inside, along with sequencing and only hand-tightening fasteners, all proved helpful. Initially aligning top to bottom frame with reflector double holes was key to starting off on the right foot. Presetting electric screw gun torque with a relatively light stop, helped to cinch screw without deforming aluminum frame or phillips head screws. Nice quality product and well packaged.


Comments
Product continues to work like a charm. Glad I bought the aluminum unit as its easier to handle and certainly strong enough.

We bought or first camper last year and I've bought a few items from etrailer.com and have been very pleased with the products and timely delivery. Thanks Jeffery



- MT70108
by:

Only assembled, not yet used. There are a lot of nuts and bolts! Agree that a hex head instead of Phillips head would be better. Better yet, make it a torx head and include the bit! Other observation is agreement with others not to snug anything up until all assembled...then tighten everything. Also, would have been easier to attach the tongue to the bottom frame first (IMO). After assembly it seems to be pretty solid. I am thinking about rigging some kind of heat shield neat Subaru Outback exhaust just to be sure to prevent burn/melt of plastic corner and protect materials in carrier. Also will add reflective tape to back frame for additional visibility. Will report performance after 2000 mile move to Colorado.


Comments
Has held up well and I like the light weight aluminum. I never rigged any heat shield and there has been no issue in that regard. I added reflective tape to the exterior of the frame for visibility and safety. I am pleased with the product.

- MT70108
by:

Ordered this item along with a Class III trailer hitch and wiring kit for my daughter's Wrangler. The carrier arrived quickly. Assembly took a little over one hour, lots of screws to use when putting it together, and the directions could be better, but I managed OK. What I really like about this carrier is it's light weight...I can easily carry it around with one arm and my daughter can install and remove it on her own. There is some play between the carrier (male end) and the receiver (female end) but overall the unit is solid and stable.



- MT70108
by:

I like the product and would buy it again. However, one thing to be aware of is the location of your exhaust relative to the carrier, which may be an issue on long trips at highway speeds in the summertime when the exhaust is particularly hot. The plastic corner connectors on the carrier that were next to the exhaust on our Subaru Forester, and a plastic bin in the carrier, melted during a long trip we took last summer. One thing I do really like about the carrier is its light weight, which makes it so easy to install and remove. Since I don't have a truck, it's been very handy for taking trash and recycling to the transfer station.


Comments
It is a good idea to get a exhaust tip that turns away from the cargo carrier to avoid damage. If you have a 3 inch tailpipe you would need part # MF35180
MagnaFlow 3" Exhaust Tip - Stainless, Weld-On for 3" Tailpipe
$68.66
. For 2 3/4 inch you would need part # MF35179
MagnaFlow 2-1/2" Exhaust Tip - Stainless, Weld-On for 2-3/4" Tailpipe
$60.00
, for 4 inch tailpipes you can use part # MF35181
MagnaFlow 4" Exhaust Tip - Stainless, Weld-On for 4" Tailpipe
$100.94
, and for 3 1/2 inch you would need part # MF35178
MagnaFlow 3-1/2" Exhaust Tip - Stainless, Weld-On for 3-1/2" Tailpipe
$84.00
. These exhaust tips need to be welded on.

  • Cargo Weight Capacity of Hitch Carrier Used on Honda CR-V
    It sounds like you have a lot of cargo to transport in and on your Honda CR-V. Hitch carriers like the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 are a great way to move heavy cargo items that might be too difficult to get up on your roof. Most vehicle roofs are limited to a weight rating of 165-lbs or less and this is only a fraction of the weight that can be carried on a hitch carrier. But these hitch carriers are not intended to hold a large rooftop cargo box. The issue is that such a...

  • Compatibility of MaxxTow Cargo Bag with Mounting Straps and Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    The MaxxTow Cargo Bag w/ Mounting Straps # MT70209 is designed to be compatible with the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108. The carrier has inner dimensions of 47" long x 20-1/2" wide x 5" deep and outside dimensions of 49" long x 22-1/2" wide x 7" tall. This will allow the cargo bag to fit well and have plenty of attachment locations to keep it secure.

    The MaxxTow Cargo Bag w/ Mounting Straps # MT70209 and the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # MT70108 are actually excellent choices and will fit together beautifully.

  • Aluminum Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation that Does Not Have Speed Rating

I went out into our warehouse and grabbed a 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 and read the warning sticker and it does say not to exceed 55 MPH.

  • Does Use of Cargo Carrier Reduce Trailer Hitch Capacity
    Cargo carriers like the MaxxTow carrier part # MT70108 attached directly to a trailer hitch without the use of an extender like the part # MT70024 do not cut the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. If this carrier was installed in your hitch directly you'd get the full capacity of the trailer hitch.

You can use the Rola # 59516 kit, along with two of the # BK70BB mounting brackets. The brackets would mount to the underside of the top cargo carrier rail, allowing the lights to install into them.
