Video Transcript for Reese Cargo Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Reese Explorer Cargo Carrier for 1 and 1/4 inch hitches, part number 63155.This cargo carrier is gonna allow you to carry more gear in your vehicle or get gear outside your vehicle so you've got more room for passengers. This heavy duty cargo carrier is designed to work only with class two rated hitches with 1 and 1/4 inch by 1 and 1/4 inch shank. The steel bars and braces provide plenty of tie down points so you can make sure your gear is secure no matter what you've got in here. The inside dimensions are gonna measure 47 and 7/8th inches long, 20 inches wide, and 5 and 1/2 inches tall. It is a 3 inch raised shank and measures 11 inches from the cargo basket to the center of the hitch pinhole.It features a mesh floor which is easy to keep clean, and if you're driving through stormy weather, you don't have to worry about it pooling up water. If you're worried about your gear stacking up and blocking your taillights and brake lights, a light kit is available that installs in the brackets located on each rear side.

You can get this with part number, 20174. If you don't have a four pole flag connector to wire up your lights, you can just opt for a reflector kit using part number 59531. If you're considering some tie down options, you can use bungee cords or straps, there's plenty to be found here at eTrailer.com. There's also a cargo net available with part number 7330.It is a sturdy steel construction, which lead to it's 300 pound carrying capacity, and it features a black powder coat finish to help reduce rust and corrosion. A hitch pin and clip is not included with the carrier, but you can pick one up here at eTrailer.com with part number PC2.If you're comparing this to cargo carriers of similar weight and size ratings on our website, Surco has a similar model.

With the Reese's 3 inch shank rise, you're going to get a better ground clearance over the Surco, which has no shank rise. Both have light kits available for them, but the Reese has dedicated locations to install your lights.Customer Slick says, "Just right!!! It works great." Check out some pics from DH's Corvette.This is a simple, sturdy, straight forward cargo carrier. One of the things that I like about it is that option for the lights because it is about the width of most vehicles, so if you are stackin' up that gear, it may block the lights on both sides. Having that option can really add to the safety and features of this.Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slawlum 00:02:17. This is going to show us the side to side action which simulates the turning corners or evasive maneuvers.

Once we get to the alternate speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action, this will simulate hanging a curb, or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway.That completes our look at the Reese Explore Cargo Carrier for 1 and 1/4 inch hitches.

Bought this carrier for a 2018 CR-V with a 1 1/4 Honda hitch. So far so good. Easy to assemble. Seems study. Hasn't bottomed out on moderately steep driveways. Minimal side-to-side wiggle. Full sized cooler blocks the license plate but not brake lights. Low profile loads are fine. Doesn't interfere with rear hatch. Should have bought the locking pin right off the bat. Good price, excellent service online and via phone, rapid delivery. Hopefully it'll hold up. 524696

THis has been one of my best ever e-commerce experiences. The website was well organized, informative and easy to use. The ordering process was simple and efficient and the order arrived so fast that I was amazed. he produce arrived exactly on time and as described. Assembly was easy and tok maybe 15 minutes half of which was finding the right size metric wrenches and sockets. Best of all the fit to my Subaru Forester was great because it did not block the license plate or taillights and was not directly inline with the exhaust. I usually try to buy locally but this product was not avaialble locally. I was extremely pleased with the experience and the product. 528481

The product came on time, in perfect condition. I bought this for my son who is planning a camping trip soon after Christmas. He forgot to check the hitch size and thought he could just go to Pep Boys but they only had 2 in. hitch baskets. I was very impressed with how easy your website was to use. I found the correct cargo basket for my son's car in no time. I had a confirmation email in minutes and a shipping confirmation with tracking the next day. When I get my hitch for my Honda CR-V, I'll use etrailer. 166450

Like many of you I read all the reviews about this Cargo Carrier (63155) Light kit (20174), and net (7330) some were negative some were positive. Here is what I found with my order. When I first opened the box I found everything I ordered was in the box, however prior to receiving this package I had an email sent from one off the employees letting me know the order was packed everything was in stock and was shipped with the tracking information. (I was impressed with this and was impressed even more when a different employee sent me an email to let me know that the package was delivered so I knew to look for it when I got Home.) Ok so the Cargo carrier a real nice thick coat of black glossy paint. Looks great. There was a small amount of assembly which didn't require reading the enclosed direction because it was very obvious what went where. Very nice carrier. The light kit was packed in a bag if you read the reviews some were complaining about not enough wire and wire ties (tie straps) I found there was plenty of each but you will need to plan out the routing before you use your tie straps. The light kit is very easy to install took 4-5 minutes. The light kit is in my opinion an important add on because of the vehicle lights being partially or even fully blocked when the cargo carrier is loaded it offers brake, turn signal, and running lights the same as your vehicle would do. I highly recommend it. lastly the cargo net it really cool the hooks are easier to put on then the video online shows them to be. Overall if you need a carrier that is a class II 20 X 48 1 1/4" this is an excellent buy both price and quality. 77873

I bought this carrier a year ago and it continues to perform well. I use it on an 07 Toyota Solara. I had previous carriers that were too low to the ground when loaded and it bottomed out. This one also has a rise to it and it never bottoms out. I actually called and spoke to customer service and they recommended getting this one and actually helped even more by explaining since it was the correct size for my receiver and I didnt have to use an adapter anymore, that i could use its full weight load. This was the solution. Also keep in mind the positioning of your exhaust, if you add a bag and go on a long trip, it could melt, but that is not due to the design of this product. Its an opportunity for all. I would recommend this item. 481231

WELL WORTH THE EXTRA FEW $$$ I bought a Hidden Hitch for my Subaru Outback so I wouldn't be bashing folks shins. Problem is, with a regular basket, you have to crawl under to get the pin in. With this raised basket it is MUCH EASIER. It is also nice that it is custom cut for tail lights when I want to go that route. If you have a Class2 hitch - THIS IS THE BASKET TO BUY. 630

I received this carrier promptly after ordering by phone. The representative was cordial and knowledgable of product. My order arrived on schedule and in good condition. Assembly required about 15 minutes and was not complicated. I have not used the carrier, but did mount it on my Jeep Patriot. The construction was solid with good welds and paint. I stood in the basket and shifted my weight ( 180 lbs ) ; there was minimal flex and all connections remained solid. If purchasing this unit, it should be noted that the corners are rounded and the inside dimensions will not accomodate a rigid box of the same dimensions, and instalation of light package will also reduce inside dimentions. I am very pleased with this carrier and recomend it highly. 594590

by:

This carrier really works for our needs. It is sturdy enough to hold the weight we pack on trips and holds steady on the hitch. There is no leaning or unsteady performance. The goose-neck design allows an increased height to reduce dragging on uneven roads/drives. Totally happy with the purchase and price and easy to assemble. 585499

We got our order fast and complete. I have assembled but not yet applied to my vehicle. I expect no issues .I have been using my hitch for some time for a trailer .With the anti rattle pin I should be very pleased with this resolve. Bought this carry some of our needs for a long trip instead of hauling a trailer all that distance. There are many carriers but none have created a water proof bag tall enough to protect a wheel chair. I guess it is a bag it yourself requirement. 552043

One year in and still going strong. I use this for carrying the trash cans to the dump . I had to get creative about how to strap them on so they don't fall off, but that was not a problem. I have also used it for carrying luggage. It is very stable and is holding up extremely well. I highly recommend this item. 543550

Over the years I have purchased many items from etrailer.com and I have been very satisfied with the transactions, the usually short shipping times, the products, and the feedback. This purchase was no exception. This is the second cargo carrier I have purchased from etrailer and the same brand, although a different model. The first one had no built-in design for taillights so I mounted traditional incandescent lights. I gave that one to my daughter for her use. I purchased the LED light kit the new carrier was designed for and installed them without tools. I am impressed by the brightness of these LED lights and the fact they do not protrude beyond the frame. I had only one minor negative incident while assembling this carrier. While torquing one of the smaller bolts at 25 ft lbs the threads stripped. The nut was an internal lock nut and it did not want to come off. I had to drill the bolt head until it fell off and replaced it with a new bolt and lock nut. 398483

Super easy to assemble, I let my son work on this project for me. This carrier was one of the only ones I could find without a straight bar which was important because of how low our hitch mount is (2015 Town&Country). Pro tip, make sure you don't push the carrier mount too deep into your hitch receiver, if it gets stuck it is difficult to remove! 381354



- 63155

Hitch Cargo Carrier allows me to carrier allows me to carry several fuel containers outside my vehicle avoiding probable spills and fumes. The carrier rides high which keeps it from bottoming out when I travel over dips and small ditches. It has a slight wobble even with the special hitch pin I purchased. However this has presented no actual problems. This carrier is heavy and I consider it a good investment. 380399

Ask the Experts about this Reese Hitch Cargo Carrier

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Where to Mount Wiring on Trailer Hitch for 2018 Subaru Outback
  • There is a way for you to mount trailer wiring if you were using a brake controller on your 2018 Subaru Outback if you are installing a trailer hitch with a hidden cross tube such as the Draw-Tite # 76227 or EcoHitch # 306-X7266. The 4-way harness you use, such as the T-One # 118467 that fits your '18 Outback, is going to have to come out of your hatch but you could then attach it to the safety chain rings (see accompanying photos) with Mounting Bracket # 118149. This bracket uses zip...

  • Can a 1-1/4 - 2 Adapter be Used to Safely Haul a Cargo Carrier with a 2015 Toyota Corolla
  • The concept of a hitch adapter like the Brophy # HTAD is a good idea in theory but the problem with using one of those with a 1-1/4" hitch, like part # C11265 or # 24913 for your 2015 Toyota Corolla, is that it will reduce the weight capacity of your trailer hitch by 50%. Since those trailer hitches have a tongue weight rating of 200 lbs this means that the tongue weight will be reduced to 100 lbs. If you were to use all of this for the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 you would only...

  • Best Hitch for 2018 Subaru Forester
  • Apart from the EcoHitch 2-inch hitch model # 306-X7216 that you referenced, which is pricier due to its fabrication from recycled materials, all of the other 2-inch hitch options for your 2018 Forester share similar weight capacities and similar more-friendly prices. I definitely recommend a 2-inch Class III option. Of those, I recommend the etrailer model # e98839. This hitch is USA-made and it offers easy no-drill installation using included hardware.

  • Subaru Outback OEM Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatibility with Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The Subaru OEM hitches are more shallow than aftermarket hitches making many carriers not compatible. The 20x47 Reese Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # 63155 most likely will not fit as it is only confirmed to fit Class II hitches and the Subaru hitch has a shallow receiver like the Class I. For a fit to your receiver, I recommend either the 20x48 Surco Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # 52017 or the Curt 17x46 # C18145 both of which are rated...

  • Hitch Height of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch When Installed on a 2018 Chevy Equinox
  • When we installed the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36642 on a 2018 Chevy Equinox we found that from the ground to the top inside of the hitch receiver measured 11". Since you are looking to use a cargo carrier I recommend using the 2" hitch receiver # 76419 instead because it gives you a lot more options when it comes to using a cargo carrier. The ground clearance for this was 10-7/8" when we installed it on a 2018 Equinox. These are your best options for ground clearance with a trailer...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2019 Mercedes Benz GLC300 with Factory Hitch
  • For a cargo carrier to fit your Class II hitch on your 2019 Mercedes GLC300 for what you plan to carry I'd recommend the Reese 20 inch by 47 inch cargo carrier part # 63155. This carrier has a railing that's 5-1/2 inches tall to hold your cargo as well as provides an easy place to attach straps too and has a 3 inch rise built into the shank to help with ground clearance as well as place the carrier above your exhaust. I attached a review video for it for you to check out as well. If...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Cargo Carrier For 2013 Chevrolet Spark
  • If you do not have ground effects on your 2013 Spark the trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24893. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If you have the ground effects the trailer frame that will work with your car is part # 24894. This is also a Class l hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I recommend the Draw-Tite hitches over the Curt hitch because the Curt hitch like part # C11334 requires the use of stabilizer straps like...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2017 Buick Regal
  • If you are solely concerned about clearance for carrying your Reese Cargo Carrier # 63155 with your 2017 Buick Regal then the Curt # C12115 has about an inch more of clearance than the Draw-Tite # 36538. Your cargo carrier will easily clear the rear of your vehicle with either option though. Since the Curt requires the use of the strap # 18050 for all non-trailer loads you may consider the Draw-Tite instead. If using the strap isn't an issue then I recommend going with the Curt because...

The cargo carrier you referenced, the Pro Series # 63153, only fits a larger 2-inch size hitch but we have similar carriers you can use in your 1-1/4-inch OEM hitch, such as their model # 63155.

  • Cargo Carrier With Rise That Fits 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
  • There is not an adapter we carry which fits in a 1-1/4" hitch receiver that simply offers rise. The best option is is going to be a cargo carrier for a 1-1/4" receiver that has a shank with rise, such as the Pro Series # 63155 which has a shank that gives you 3" of rise.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle for 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver With a Cargo Carrier
  • The best thing to use would be an anit-rattle kit like the Curt Anti-Rattle Kit, part # F-315. You will use this in place of the pin and clip that you are using now to hold your Pro Series Cargo Carrier # 63155 in your receiver more securely by reducing the play. Another option that might offer some more peace of mind is the Let's Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock, part # 63147. This will not only take the play out of your current setup, but it will also lock your cargo...

This sturdy steel carrier features a weight capacity of 300 pounds and inside (usable) dimensions of 47-7/8 inches long, 20 inches wide, and 5-1/2 inches tall. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

  • Can I Put a Class 2 Cargo Carrier in My Class 1 Hitch as Long As I Do Not Exceed my Hitch Capacity
  • Even though the Class I and Class II receivers both offer a 1 1/4 inch receiver the inside of the Class I is shorter. This means Class II accessories will not slide all the way in and the hitch pin holes will not line up preventing you from inserting the pin and clip. You will not be able to use the Class II cargo carrier in the Class I hitch. We do have three cargo carriers that will fit your hitch, Curt part # C18110, Curt part # C18145, and Surco part # 52017. I will link them below.

  • Anti-Rattle Device for 20x47 Pro Series Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitches
  • Since most 1-1/4 inch accessories like # 63155 have a solid shank you will need to use anti-rattle device # 93347. I have included a link to a video showing how it works.

  • Can a Hitch Bike Rack Be Attached to a Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier in a 1-1/4-inch Class II Hitch
  • A Class II hitch-mount cargo carrier that fits a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch, such as the ProSeries Steel Carrier # 63155, cannot have a hitch-mount bike carrier attached to it. Although such carriers can appear to have a receiver tube at their rear-facing side (please see the linked photo I have prepared for you) this opening is NOT there to accept any sort of additional accessory. We do offer a unique product from Hollywood Racks, their SE Platform Bike Rack with Cargo Carrier # HR1400Z-85,...

  • Does a Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Require a Light Kit on a 1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon
  • If the cargo carrier and the cargo loaded on it do not obscure the vehicle tail lights, you do not have to have a light kit installed on the carrier. However, it is still a good idea to get a light kit for safety purposes. Since you have the wagon model of the 1995 Buick Roadmaster, you would first need to install Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # C55352. For cargo carrier, # 63155, you can use light kit # 20174. I have included a link to the installation details for the vehicle...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for Carrying Snow Blower
  • Both Pro Series cargo carriers can handle the 270 pound snow blower. The difference is that # 63153 is 24x60 inches rated for 500 pounds and meant for use in a 2 inch hitch receiver. The # 63155 is 20x47 inches rated for 300 pounds and is meant for use in a Class I or II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The weight of the carrier and the snow blower can't exceed the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. This information will be printed on a sticker affixed to the hitch. Since your vehicle...

  • Recommendation for an Enclosed Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • There are no boxes that will fit in trailer hitch mount cargo carriers like # 63155 but there are bags that fit, # 59102. It is not waterproof because to be waterproof it has to be able to be submerged under water for a certain period of time and not let any water in. We do carry some enclosed hard shell trailer hitch mount cargo carriers that will fit in Class II, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches though. First we have the Thule Transporter, # TH665C. This carrier can tilt down, lick, and...

  • Compatibility of Rola Cargo Carrier LED Lamp Kit # 59516 with Pro Series # 63153 Cargo Carrier
  • The Rola LED light kit you referenced, part # 59516 is indeed compatible with the Pro Series # 63153 cargo carrier. There is also the # 98174LED lamp kit that would also work, but I personally prefer the Rola Kit due to its heavier-duty wiring harness and connectors. Either light kit is also compatible with the # 59502, 59507, 59550, 63154 and 63155 cargo carriers. I have linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.

  • Parts Needed to Carry a Motorized Chair with a 2005 Buick LeSabre
  • Out of the available trailer hitch receiver options for your 2005 Buick LeSabre I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36309 which is a Class II with a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver. It does have a Tongue Weight (TW) rating of 300 lbs but you will be limited by the maximum TW rating of your LeSabre. I looked at the online version of your owner's manual and it stated that the max weight capacity of a trailer that your LeSabre can haul is 1,000 lbs and that the TW should...

  • Class III Hitch Recommendation for a 2007 Ford Explorer
  • I have a solution for you. You would want the Draw-Tite part # 75437. This is a Class III 2 inch hitch specifically designed to fit your 2007 Ford Explorer with a factory hitch. You will need to retain your factory hitch to install this hitch. It will fit below your factory hitch. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • Can Any Cargo Carrier Be Used on a Trailer
  • The 20x47 Reese Cargo Carrier part # 63155 has a fixed shank so there won't be any reason that you couldn't use it on the rear of your travel trailer. If it had a folding shank then there would be issues as the added movement from any accessory on a trailer would create problems in the pivot point for the cargo carrier. If you are looking for a trailer hitch to attach to your trailer's bumper then we do have options for you but all of them have a 2" receiver tube. For this, I recommend...

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a 2011 Kia Sportage
  • I absolutely understand about wanting to go a different route other than something that mounts on the roof for your 2011 Kia Sportage. I would definitely go with a Class III trailer hitch, like # 75717. (With the Curt hitch you would have to use a stabilization strap # 18050 for non-trailer loads per Curts warranty requirements.) In addition to more capacity, you will have a wider range of options as far as what carriers you could use and a Class III hitch is more versatile all around...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receiver on 2005 Subaru
  • It sounds like you are looking for a hitch-mounted cargo carrier for the 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver on your Subaru. I recommend looking at the Pro Series 20x47 Cargo Carrier # 63155 for your vehicle. This is a very nice, basket-style cargo carrier that features a mesh floor for easy cleaning and a sturdy steel construction. This carrier does also have a shank rise of 3 inches from the top of the hitch receiver opening which will help increase ground clearance. I recommend adding the Anti-Rattle...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Hitch that Wont Interfere with Liftgate Sensors of 2014 Ford Escape
  • We have several hitches compatible with your 2014 Escape Titanium. There are Class III hitches with the 2 inch receiver opening, the Draw-Tite # 75758. This hitch will block the hands-free liftgate sensors somewhat, they will only be functional in the areas around the exhaust pipes as shown in the diagram I provided. If you decide to go with a 2 inch hitch, I'd recommend the Curt # C18153 folding cargo carrier. The carrier basket measures 24x60, and the basket can fold up against the...

  • Can a Dirt Bike be Carried on Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • All of the trailer hitches available for your 2014 Chevy Cruze, including # 24882, are Class I hitches which have a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds maximum. This is the first hurdle because the combined weight of the dirt bike and the carrier would have to be under 200 pounds. The second hurdle is that carriers designed to carry motorcycles will not fit in Class I hitches. So the cargo carriers that do fit Class I hitches may not be long enough for the bike. I recommend # C18110...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 1-1/4 Trailer Hitch on a 2006 Toyota Camry
  • A good choice for a hitch mounted cargo carrier for your 2006 Toyota Camry is manufactured by Pro Series. The 20 X 47 Pro Series Cargo Carrier. This carrier doesn't fold up - actually, none of the carriers that will fit your vehicles 1-1/4 hitch and hitch rating fold up. This cargo carrier's dimensions are 49-1/2 inches long X 21-1/2 inches tall. The # 63155 has actual railings to attach tie down straps. You will need to check your owners manual for your tongue weight rating. The...

  • Will Class II Cargo Carrier Work With Class I Trailer Hitch on 2018 Subaru Crosstrek?
  • If you are certain that the Class I, 1-1/4" hitch on your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek does not have the stop tab then yes, you can use the Pro Series Cargo Carrier # 63155. The only thing to keep in mind is that you still have to go by the weight capacity of your Class I hitch. I also highly recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 1-1/4" Hitches # 63147 to both lock your cargo carrier to your hitch and greatly reduce the amount of rattling you would encounter with...
