The rack is much bigger than my previous one. I was disappointed that it was made in China instead of the USA. It assembled very easily and the light kit works very well. The only draw back is I can no longer open my tailgate with the rack installed due to the spare tire hitting the raised rack.

For most manufacturers of the cargo carriers that we carry, they will be made overseas. We do have a manufacturer that have their products made in the US, called Lets Go Aero. Please check out part # H01465
24x48 Lets Go Aero BigBoss Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs
, which is going to be a bit smaller and have only a 300 lbs capacity, but it is the only carrier that I am aware of that is made in the USA.

The carrier was exactly what I was expecting. High quality, powder coated, and heavy duty. This will allow me to transport my mower, pressure washer, cooler, and anything that I do not want inside my Jeep. I would highly recommend this to anyone.


I was very disappointed to receive by items. One box being completely damaged and open and the thick bar completely out and about. The other box not even completely covered as shown in the pictures provided. Very strange how a box was not available to fully enclose the box that the product came in. Luckily the products were not damaged but still very disappointed in how it was delivered and the state of the packaging.


I have only taken it for a test drive so far, but it seems very sturdy and is exactly what I was looking for. The shipping box was in rough shape, and there were some minor scratches on the paint in one corner, but nothing worth fussing about.

Ive only used the carrier once, but it worked exactly as expected. It was solid and did not rattle or shake. I kind of wish I had gotten the folding version to allow the rack to be folded up and out of the way, but I was concerned about the pivot point causing more wobble while driving. For now, I have to just remove the rack entirely once we get to our destination.

This a very nice hitch rack. Well built, lots of space, long hitch tube works very well with Jeep Wrangler JL spare tire, however, you will not be able to open the swing tailgate with the rack on. Its not a big issue as it provides a good amount of clearance to the ground. If you use this carrier with one of the hitch rack cargo bags, it really adds to the cargo capacity of the rack. I have been very happy with this rack, I also like that you can add additional tail/brake lights to the rack.

Update, Still supper happy with the carrier. It did great during hunting season hauling heavy loads. One word of caution specifically for Jeep Wrangler owners. If you run a larger tire than stock ie-35x12.50x17, like I do, the racks tubing is not long enough to make it into the hole for the hitch pin to line up. You will either need a hitch extension or another hole drilled in the tube most likely NOT recommended by the manufacturer. Still keeping the 5 star rating.

I'm a 67 year old woman. I was able to unpack this cargo carrier, and put it together with simple tools, and load it onto my receiver. It's just perfect for my needs. I can still open the back lift gate of my 2023 Ford Transit Connect with everything I want loaded. It's black powder coated and of high quality. You definitely need the anti rattle part as it will move side to side without it. Also, even though this is rated 500 lbs. my tongue weight of the receiver is only 200 lbs, so make sure you check what your receiver can handle before loading. Nevertheless everything I wanted to load was only 163 pounds, so I'm safe.


Easy to install took about 10-15 minutes and was able to hook up to Highlander with ease. Solid product!!!!! Enough clearance for brake lights and enough separation from vehicle!! Definitely recommend silent hitch pin.


the cargo carrier is great. the cover is necessary unless you have one or two bulky items. you also need hitch tightener to keep the carrier from wobbling. contacting me a year later indicates you are trying to be a better company every day.


First off, etrailer is great. I shopped numerous other sites and they had the best price on his cargo carrier. Second, they kept me in he loop from start to finish and had the cargo carrier delivered on the 3rd business day (maybe it was the 2nd).

The cargo carrier was easy to put together. I haven't used it yet so I can't comment on that but will follow-up once I have.

I do believe I will eventually order an anti wobble hitch pin though. There is quite a bit of play in my 2" receiver but maybe that won't be a factor once I have some weight on it.

Looks really nice - Im looking to get one for my Jeep too. Have you had any troubles since you wrote this review ? Did you need the anti wobble pin ? How easy is it to put it on and off, my concern is that I will need to take it on and off a lot.
-- comment by: Sam - 06/13/2014
This is for Sam. No, I have not had any problems with the cargo carrier. It is a little heavy but I can take it on and off by myself. I hang it on the wall in my garage so it stores nicely out of the way. It does wobble but it doesnt really seem to affect anything. I usually try and make sure my load is balanced.I think it is a perfect addition for the wranglers limited storage space.

The Reese cargo carrier and anti-rattle lock both arrived quickly and in perfect condition. My 14 year old son and I put the carrier together in about 15 minutes and installed it on my 2019 Toyota 4Runner. Very happy with the the quality of the carrier. It is very sturdy. We hauled (3) 5-gallon gas containers to the gas station, filled them and returned home without incident. The carrier performed as I hoped it would. This was the first of many jobs I expect this carrier to help with in the future. Although the photo may not show it, the containers were secured with heavy duty bungee cords during during our trip.

One year later and still using the Reese carrier frequently. Its holding up well and is super easy to use.

Well built, very solid, and exactly what I need behind my fifth wheel.

Still solid and working well a year out.
Dan - 08/13/2023


This cargo carrier is awesome! No problems whatsoever and we LOAD it up for camping!.

The cargo capacity is 500 pounds. You do want to make sure that you are not exceeding the tongue weight capacity of your vehicles hitch.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/05/2022


Solid carrier with plenty of room!Wow, I put this carrier to the test on a 1,600 mile road trip with our 2007 Toyota Highlander and was not disappointed. Plenty of room to store luggage for a family of four plus a load of Christmas presents. We kept everything secure and dry with the 20-cubic foot cargo bag and kept side movement to practically nil with the anti-rattle hitch pin. All around, the whole set up was rock solid and looked great!

I highly recommend the light kit as well. With the cargo bag fully maxed out, the Highlander's taillights were blocked. And since we do a fair amount of driving at night I also added some reflective tape all around the top bar to give not only the sides some visibility, but also the back to get the attention of those not-so-attentive drivers behind me.

Lastly, the kit was easy to put together; it came with spacers but I did not need them to obtain a flush assembly; the separation problem some have reported during assembly was avoided by torquing down the bolts around the nameplates before the main bar bolts, just as others have reported to have worked for them.

How did you mount the license plate to the carrier?
-- comment by: Bob D - 11/30/2012

@ Bob - I drilled two holes to accomodate the standard bolt size used to mount the license plate to the car and then used nuts to secure the assembly.As a side note, two years later the carrier is holding up well. Have used it numerous times for short and long hauls and even my neighbors are borrowing it :-
-- comment by: Ray J - 12/03/2012

Thanks Ray... I dont like self taping screws, taking them in and out will eventually mess up. Your idea of through bolting the plate is what I was going to do, but I was concerned about weakening the structure. Glad to see this is not an issue with you two years later.... C-Ya! BfD

I bought this carrier rack as the base unit for a generator box that I installed on the back of my travel trailer. It worked perfectly, and I've been using it for almost a year with no issues other than instant rust on the lower parts of the frame the first time it rained. A can of rust inhibiting spray paint took care of that issue.

I did a ton of online research and chose this model because it actually has a large distance between the hitch receiver and the carrier and I needed it to stick out far enough to clear the spare tire. This model also has about a 4 inch rise between the hitch and the carrier which helps prevent it from dragging on the ground when going over gullies and steep driveways and such. This was the only one I found that didn't sit straight out from the hitch.

The carrier itself is quite robust. It was easy to assemble, and I installed the LED light kit (super easy to install) and added some reflective tape for additional visibility. It is a bit heavy and awkward for one person to install on a vehicle, but I managed to do it and an "anti-rattle" hitch pin (also purchased from etrailer) took care of the sway. I didn't worry about the up and down movement because I bolted a metal box inside to carry 2 portable generators and the weight seems to keep it pretty stable.

I've attached a couple of photos... please note that my trailer is backed up against a 6 inch retaining wall, so the rack is 6 inches closer to the ground than it is when I'm driving.


Nice quality carrier thats super easy to assemble. Want lights? No problem, comes ready-made to install optional light kit. Would purchase again.

Well over a year and product is just fine. Thank you for the follow up!

Ordered this cargo carrier, extra large bag and light kit. Shipping was extremely fast; arrived in less that 4 days. Easy to assemble, I did however run to my local hardware store and got extra heavy duty washers to be sure all was nice and snug when assembled. The cargo carrier assembly was as easy as described; however no matter how I put in the lights, the plug wire was not long enough. Bought a $4 extender at Walmart. Be sure to put the rubber grommets in first, then put the lens in !!! Packed 3 large suitcases, 2 large duffel bags, smaller bags and still had room!! We did a 800 mile round trip to the beach, ran through some terrible rain storms, but everything stayed bone dry inside the cargo bag. Great product, fast shipping; wish I would have bought this long ago.

Thank you for the picture of bag!What is the brand and model of the extra large bag?
-- comment by: DC - 07/12/2013


Works perfect with my van. Im able to have cargo on the basket and still be able to open my lift gate. Use it all the time for camping and family trips.


Bought this to free up space inside the Vehicle and also to haul items I don't want IN the vehicle , it's preformed wonderfully. It doesn't take away from fuel mileage, not sloppy in the reciever. Nice clearance from the hatch .Highly recommend this item.


I have three pics of our new cargo carrier that we bought from you. Also the light kit and cargo netting. The cargo carrier went very good. I did have to buy a hitch adapter, which i have a pic of because the cargo carrier was a 2" and i have a 1 and 1/2 inch reciever. As you can see we do not travel lightly.


Works great, greatly adding to our cargo space. I feel very confident about the load back there. Even more so after adding the lights!


Easy to assemble. Karen was very helpful in the ordering process. Thank you


Love this thing. More room than I expected, and makes a nice platform to reach the top of my van when placing the kayaks up there. Great purchse.


Strong and durable cargo carrier. We use it when going on camping trips with the family. Enough space to load everything we need. Weight capacity is great!


great service from Korren and etrailer--excellent product!! Very well satisfied,

I purchased this cargo carrier for my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. It came disassembled and following the instructions, I had it set up in less than 30 minutes.

I mounted it to my Jeep's hitch and it sits perfectly. I have over-sized Nitto Terra Grappler tires (305/55/R20).

The goose neck on the carrier clears my rear tire by 4" (see photo).

Hi Bill,I also own a 2013 Jeep Wrangler. Can you open the rear door with the unloaded cargo carrier installed?
