Video Transcript for Pro Series 20 by 48 Folding Cargo Carrier Review

Today we are going to show you the Pro Series 20 by 48 folding cargo carrier for 2 inch hitches, part number 6502. The carrier measures 13 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier platform. When folded up, the distance measures 7-1/2 inches from the closest edge of the carrier to the hitch pin hole. The Pro Series 20 by 48 cargo carrier uses a step shank to add extra ground clearance behind the carrier. To utilize the folding feature remove the pin, tilt the carrier all of the way to the upright position and re-insert the pin in the lower securing hole. The carrier is folded up and secure out of the way. The carrier is finished with a black powder coat paint. 0:44

There is a 3 inch tall lip that goes around the entire floor of the carrier. Along the lip are several predrilled mounting locations that you can use, as well as holes for license plate brackets if you need to move the license plate off your vehicle. Make sure that when you use your bungee cords to not attach them to the floor of the carrier itself. When you load the carrier, make sure you place the heavier items over the center of the carrier where the shank is and put your lighter items towards the outside. Today we are going to be using an elastic cargo net to secure our load on the cargo carrier. And there you have it for the Pro Series 20 by 48 folding cargo carrier, part number 6502.

Bought the Pro Series Cargo Carrier for my Jeep a year ago . Could not be happier with it . Fits just right and has been a real plus with carrying many items . This is great because a Jeep does not allow for a lot of storage for hauling things inside . The carrier also is down low enough on the hitch, so I don't have to worry about lifting items up to high to load (full cooler etc. ) . Mine folds up which I really like when not in use . Thanks for a great product ! Strongly recommend ! 257498

Solid and well built. Nice powder coat finish. Purchased to use alternately with motorhome and pickup truck. Also purchased eTrailer anti-rattle receiver hitch lock, works perfectly...snugs the stinger into the receiver and eliminates all lateral & vertical movement within the receiver. Great combination. I have made other purchases from eTrailer and always get great service. They offer wide variety of products and provide dependable reviews and staff Q&A responses. In my opinion, the "go to" place for trailering and towing equipment. 211138

The cargo carrier attached easily. My only issue is that when tightened to the point there is no rattle to raise or lower the carrier floor the 3/4 bolt has to be loosened to align the hitch pin. Also the instruction enclosed was confusing and appeared incorrect. Your video showed the correct way to put it together. This is what I used. 11920

Thanks for the feedback. Extenders can be really handy, but sometimes weight capacities are affected.

Okay. Here’s the scoop on the Draw-Tite 20x48 Folding Cargo Carrier For 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver. I bought it since it looked like the best choice to carry camping cargo on my 2010 RAV4. I believe I was right and that it was and is the best choice. In the “up” position it clears the rear door-mounted spare tire. No extension is needed to get it to clear the rear spare tire. I thought that the 48” width was perfect and that a 60” wide carrier was a too wide for my RAV4. Also, the #59102 (waterproof) Rola Expandable Cargo Bag, 9.5 to 11.5 cubic feet fits PERFECTLY in this cargo carrier I had no need for a larger carrier. I just use it for camping and carrying extra gear so the back of the RAV4 is not loaded with stuff. When I’m at my destination I empty the Rola bag contents, put it inside the back of the RAV4 and put the carrier in the “up” position until I’m ready to break camp, re-load the Rola bag and move on. I use a Draw-Tite Receiver that I mounted on my RAV4. So to hold the 2” shank firmly in the Draw-Tire receiver and keep it from rattling I got a #63201 Draw-Tite J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset from etrailer. It you do not have a Draw-Tite Receiver, then this stabilization pin may or may not fit. If it doesn’t fit then—at least—you can get a #SR25219 Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin for 2" Trailer Hitches from etrailer. It looks like it will accomplish the same thing if the Draw-Tite J-Pin Stabilization Pin will not fit your receiver. The Draw-Tite J-Pin Stabilization Pin is a little easier if you take the Draw-Tite 20x48 Folding Cargo Carrier on and off a lot, but it is no big deal. Anyway, the Draw-Tite 20x48 Folding Cargo Carrier folds up when you’re not using it and down when you’re using it so the point is that it is the kind of carrier that someone would get when you don’t want to be putting the carrier on and taking it off your vehicle a lot. I suggest using Draw-Tite J-Pin Stabilization Pin or the Stainless Steel Locking, Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin, or something similar to hold the shank firmly. But the Draw-Tite 20x48 Folding Cargo Carrier would still rattle ALL THE TIME as I drove down the road. It didn’t matter if it was in the “up” or “down” position. The reason is that the outer two holes that the included ½” safety pin goes through (this is the pin that you remove and reinsert every time you want to lower or raise the cargo carrier platform) are bigger than ½”. This is the cause of the rattle. What was the cure? I bought a 3-1/2” x ½” hex-head bolt (not a carriage bolt!) at Home Depot. (3” is too short.) I also got a ½” nut, two ½” flat washers and one ½” split lockwasher. This replaced the included safety pin. That way I could snug down the nut on the ½” bolt and every bit of the rattle went away. This “cure” cost about $1.60. I also recommend torquing the pivot bolt as much as you can. You’d have to be a competitor in the 'Worlds Strongest Man' competition to be able to over-torque it. Granted, I now have to carry a pair of wrenches to tighten or loosen the nut and bolt whenever I want to raise or lower the cargo carrier platform. But on long rides it keeps me from going crazy from rattle noise. No rattle at all. 47911

Love the combo! Trailer, hitch, attachment plate, lock. I mostly carry gardening tools on trailer. So much easier to access and store tools on trailer than load then unload them from inside Highlander. Trailer also handy for carrying large materials. With strategy, crate and hand trolley, I can remove and reattach trailer solo. Am 71, 5'3" 782103

Great product. Way better built than the competition. Only minus is the removable pin used for the folded/unfolded position is a little loose so I expect it to wiggle during transport. Other than that I'm extremely satisfied. 437348

by:

Sturdy & well designed. Purchased this one because I needed a narrower model for my Jeep Wrangler. Also wanted it to be able to fold up. Like the "raked" design to allow for more ground clearance. Seems built well enough, but I would pay more for the steel to be a heavier gauge to hold up better to any abuse. 436858

Product came in a single box in perfect shape. Great construction, easy to put together. I bought this to go on the front of my John Deere Gator 855D. Sometimes, there just isn't enough room to pack everything you need when going down the trail or you don't feel like slinging a Honda generator and a heavy cooler packed full of ice and your favorite beverages up in the back of the bed. This cargo carrier fit the bill perfectly. It took all of 5 minutes to put it together and slide into the front 2" receiver on my gator. With the fold up design, I have 22" of clearance between the ground and the bottom of the carrier when carrier is folded out horizontal. Being the carrier is 48" wide, it is narrower than the gator, so I don't have to worry about trying to squeeze through a tight space in the woods. If the gator will go through the space, so will the carrier rack. When I don't need the carrier, it is a snap to pull the pin, swing the carrier rack 90 degrees up and pop the pin back in. Even when folded into the upright position, you can easily see over the carrier rack. Thanks for making a great product. 338416

Cargo carrier came well packed and was delivered fast. I have purchased several items from etrailer over the last couple years and have always been completely happy witht the products, price and speed of delivery. This carrier is on my 2014 CRV. It is the perfect width and gives enough ground clearance that I don't have to worry about it scraping the ground on steep driveways. Took 5 minutes to put it together and install it. I plan on using a bolt/ locknut in place of the pin assembly that controls the tilt feature to reduce looseness/ rattle when driving and also purchasing an anti-rattle hitch pin. Overall, very happy with the carrier. 203749

Downsizing from a GMC Envoy to a Ford Escape, i was looking for something to recover some of the space I lost for hauling. The Pro Series carrier has done the trick. I paired it with the anti rattle hitch receiver. I recommend that combo, as I literally forgot I was had anything attached behind me at times. Also, the anti rattle receiver locks,which the provided receiver does not. I chose the smaller 20x48 but it carried 3 15x20 inch plastic bins nicely. The carrier was easy to assemble, and while heavy, was easy on and off. It can be a little awkward to insert the pins reaching over or around the carrier, but its generally easy to work with. Now I must say, I also purchased the Highland cargo net, and that was a huge waste. The cargo net may work with different carriers or roof carriers,but the plastic hooks are too large for the holes in this carrier, and was too hard to use. I ended up snapping off two of the hooks before switching to some Walmart purchased bungee cords with the metal hooks. So I am all in on the carrier and the anti rattle receiver, but save your money on the cargo net. 193805

When the carrier is folded up you have the 3 inch tall lip of the carrier and the width of the shank (2-1/2 inches) on the bottom of the carrier going back towards the vehicle. So they are both correct measurements, one...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier with a Ramp for a 180 Pound Power Wheelchair
    All of the trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers with ramps have a high enough weight capacity for a 180 pound power wheelchair so all that's left is to determine what size the carrier needs to be. Also I should point out that all of the carriers with ramps require a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. Pro Series carrier # PS10401-10402 is a great option. It has a 400 pound capacity, long ramp, and the useable dimensions, when the ramp is folded up, are 47-3/4" long x 31-3/4" wide x 2-3/4"...

  • Will the 20x60 inch Folding Cargo Carrier for 2 inch Trailer Hitches Fit a Jeep Wrangler
    The 20x60 inch Folding Cargo Carrier for 2 inch Trailer Hitches A30850 is designed so that when it is in the folded up position it is fairly close to the vehicle.

A30850 measures 1-1/4 inch from the center of hitch pin hole to carrier railing when folded up. Second is the 20x48 Folding Cargo Carrier For 2 inch Trailer Hitch...

  • Recommended Travel Trailer Hitch Receiver and Cargo Carrier for Gas Generator
    On your Dutchmen Coleman Lantern 17rd travel trailer, I recommend the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 which has a weight capacity of 350 lbs maximum tongue weight. Then for a 4,000 watt running generator like the Q-iPower # 289-AP5000 which weighs 117 lbs and has dimensions of 23-1/4" long x 17" wide x 18-1/2" tall, you will want a cargo carrier like the TorkLift Lock and Load # TLA7752. This will not only help carry the generator but also deter theft. If you want...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Carrying etrailer.com Generators # 333-0003-2-0007
    The Reese Cargo Carrier part # 6502 has a 500 lb weight capacity but doesn't quite have the dimensions needed to fit both of the etrailer.com generators part # 333-0003-2-0007 so for a better option I'd recommend the 23 inch by 47 inch Carpod Cargo Carrier part # M2205-2201 as it has the dimensions and weight capacity needed, but what I really like about this carrier is that it's enclosed which makes it easier to secure the generators in and also makes it easier to protect them from theft....
