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

It's a super cool setup and works great! My only downsize is it doesn't fold up against my rear tire on the back of my jeep, but oh well...still love the product! 110857

HiI have jeep wrangler with spare in the way also but the gentleman for this company told me to but the 18 inch extender and it pushed it out enough to fold uo. Hopefully that works for you. best luck. it looks awesome though.

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

by:

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

Solid construction and works great on my ATV, when folded it tucks up closely and allows me to take my ATV on any trail without any problem. Take a look at my pictures and see for yourself. I'm very happy with my purchase! 440797



- 6502
by:

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



- 6502
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

So far the cargo looks good. I have not had time to fit it, but I amm sure it is going to suit my needs. 419385

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

This is a great travel storage solution. The ability to adjust was very important to me. We have used it on a number of trips and we have had no trouble. We use Rubbermaid totes to store items and then tarp and bungee the cargo down. Doesn't move. Highly recommend. 251032

Just finished a 1000 mile road trip. This carrier worked great. It did not rattle or sway. I loaded it with about 150 pounds. I also used the waterproof cargo bag which also worked very well. I was able to avoid a $500.00 trailer rental by buying these products. 234670

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

I've used the cargo carrier on a couple of car-camping trips now, and it's just what I needed. My vehicle, a 2009 Subaru Forester, has a fairly modest max. tongue weight, so I don't dare load up the carrier with a lot of heavy things. Instead, I've got the Rola Expandable Cargo Bag that I stuff with the lighter, bulky items, and put coolers and other heavier supplies inside the vehicle. The one trouble I've had is that the second set of holes in the shank that allow for the cargo platform to fold up, parallel to the car, don't line up exactly right, preventing the lock pin from being inserted to secure it in the "up" position. I'm not quite sure yet of how I'll address that, but it hasn't been a huge problem. 142680

The cargo basket was installed in 20-minutes on my 1999 Chevy Tracker. It is a two person job one person to hold the basket and one person to line up the holes in the basket, it was easy. it took more time to cut up the cardboard packaging. The cargo basket, when folded in the upright position has a one inch clearance from the external spare tire. Two bungee cords are necessary to prevent the cargo unit from wobbling when folded in the upright position.. Lenny G. 98708

I ordered one of these for my 2002 Jeep Wrangler and am very pleased with it. I thought I was going to need a hitch extender to clear the factory spare tire mounted on the rear of the Jeep when it was in the folded up position, but found that it was not necessary. It clears the tire by a couple of inches when it's in the "up" positon. 89827

Works with my spare tire I love this cargo carrier. The 13 inches is just enough clearance for the spare tire on my Jeep Wrangler. I was a bit worried about the back door clearing the rack, but found that if I remove the pin completely and let the carrier drop below its normal level, that I can also open the back door. In the regular flat position, the tire doesn't clear the lip of the rack. Works great if you don't mind undoing the pin to open the back door. I move mine around all the time. I recommend getting locking bolts to hold the license plate on so they don't rattle off. 2616

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.

If that distance is less than 5 inches, then the Curt 20x60 Folding, Aluminum Cargo Carrier, # C18100, will fit when in the folded up position. The 2 inch trailer hitch mounted carrier with the most clearance when folded up is the Draw-Tite, # 6502. It measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest edge of the carrier when folded...

  • Comparing Curt Cargo Carrier C18109 and Pro Series Carrier 6502
  • No, these are 2 different brands. The Pro Series carrier is made by Cequent/Horizon Global and on it is # 6502. The other one, # C18109, is made by Curt manufacturing. The Curt model is also larger at 19 x 60 inches compared to 20 x 48 inches for # 6502. Both only fit 2 inch trailer hitches, both can fold up, and both have a 500 pound capacity. Another key difference is that the Curt model has a straight shank and the Pro Series has a rise in the shank (if more ground clearance is needed)....

  • The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, part # C13069, is a good fit for your Subaru Tribeca. This hitch comes complete with hardware and requires no welding to install.

  • Which Folding Cargo Carrier Best for 2012 Jeep Wrangler, Curt Part # C18153 or Surco Part # 52018F

First, measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch to the most-rearward edge of your spare tire. This will reveal the available clearance for a folding cargo carrier.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 10 Inch Ground Clearance from Bottom of Hitch Receiver on Winnebago
  • For the limited ground clearance, I recommend a carrier with a rise in the shank to give you that additional clearance to avoid dragging or bottoming out. I recommend the 22x59 Rola Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 600 lbs # 59502 which is extremely strong and has a shank rise of 2 inches. For a folding option, I recommend the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Folding - 500 lbs # C18153 or the 20x48 ProSeries # 6502. These will have a similar rise and the biggest...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier for a 2011 Chevy Equinox that Can Fold without Bumper Interference
  • In order for a hitch mounted cargo carrier to be able to install on the hitch of your 2011 Chevy Equinox and still fold up it is going to need a distance of 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the nearest portion of the rack when folded. I know this because we installed a hitch on a 2011 Chevy Equinox and we measured from the center of the hitch pin out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper and found that it measures 5 inches. Check out the video I attached to see this. Now...

  • The Curt trailer hitch mount cargo carrier # C18153 measures approximately 9 inches from the top of the receiver tube to the top of the side rails nearest the vehicle at 19 inches back from the center of the pin hole. This can vary slightly though if the hitch receiver is angled slightly up or down. Based on this it would be very close on a 2013 FJ Cruiser but you would need to measure to be sure.
