Video Transcript for Rola 22x59 Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited, we're test fitting the Rola 22 x 59 Cargo Carrier. Now, this offers steel construction, nice heavy duty black powder coat finish, and a 600 pound weight capacity. The part number on it is 59502.Now, cargo carriers like this are a really good way to free up space inside your vehicle for passengers or pets or keep dirty items out of your car. You'll see here we've got a really heavy duty platform base to it. It doesn't flex or bend like what you see with other cargo carriers. I like that the holes are really nice and large, so if you do have clumps of mud or rocks that happen to get up on there, it should just fall right down through.You got a raised rail all the way around the outside of the carrier.

It's going to be about 5" over our platform, so that's going to help secure our items in place, but it also provides for a lot of good attachment points to get everything strapped and tied down. We have good ground clearance here at the back of the carrier too. It's right at about 22". I'm going to measure out from the tire of the Jeep. This is a 245/75/R17 to give you a reference point, and it's about 27-1/4" what we're adding.

Closest point of the carrier to the tire will be about 2-3/4", and then the closest point of the carrier to the bumper is going to be about 8-3/4"Now, something I really like about this carrier. You can see how nice and secure it is. The only thing really moving is the Jeep. They provide an anti-rattle bolt for you. A lot of cargo carriers you'll see bouncing around and flopping around as they head down the highway, and it just doesn't happen with this one.

It's really nice and secure. So, for the Jeep application, I think that'll be nice, especially if you're spending time off-road.The round tube construction also gives it a really neat look. I think it blends in nice with the Jeep. Traditionally, there's just an oval hole here, but they put reflectors in there for you just to give it a little bit more visibility, and that can easily be switched out for a light kit. That'll be available on our website.One of the negatives I see here, that the tire is going to make contact with the carrier when you open the rear hatch.

See, it's not really going to give you much of an opportunity to get into the back there. The exhaust is going to be right down here on this Wrangler, and it points down. There's no danger at all of that actually coming out, making contact with anything you might have on here. You won't have to worry about heat or exhaust fumes.You want a 2" x 2" receiver tube opening. You can't use it with a hitch smaller than that. If you have a hitch larger than that, by chance, on another vehicle, you can use the adapter for it, so something good there. We've got some footage of this out on our test course, so we're going to take a look at that now and see how it performed.This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side-to-side action such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps, this shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or uneven pavement. And last of all, the solid speed bumps, this shows up-and-down action such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage or driving in and out of a driveway.

After extensive research I placed the order for the Rola 59502 Cargo Carrier from Etrailer. Free shipping, no sales tax, a price match through Pricepledge that saved me another $37, & the carrier made it to Texas in just 2 days. I'm a 59 yr old widow & had the carrier assembled & installed on my '02 Jeep Wrangler the same afternoon that it arrived. Looks good & feels solid. Will be seeing how it performs in another 4 wks when I take my 60th bday trip to New Mexico. Thank you to Natalie & Judy @ etrailer for the prompt & efficient service provided. 419520

Got this for my wife's 17 Pacifica. easy to put together and super sturdy. I will still be welding it together so I don't have to worry about the bolts. I stood on it and at 225 lbs, there was not movement. Multiple tie down points ensure I always have something to latch to that will be strong since this is steel. Nice powder coating on the carrier. I will be using a Curt waterproof bag shortly with this. The retention bolt is a screw in so it tends to discourage someone from stealing it unless they have the tools on hand. 12 bolts and about 10 minutes to install. Very happy. 439084

Six months since original review. Over a year of ownership now. Has been on the hitch pretty much continuously for over 6 months, just coming off once to tow a trailer and occassionally clean the receiver and make sure rust wasn't combining the two permanently. Since my apartment complex doesn't let me keep my trailer handy this has all but taken its place. Always in use, always abused, never less than solid. Hitch-Vise anti-rattle bracket also HIGHLY recommended. 30183

I received my Rola Cargo Carrier within 5 days of ordering it. It was a bit scuffed when I opened the box but the finish was intact. The instructions were easy to follow and I had the whole thing assembled withing 20 minutes of opening the box. I added some reflective tape and just mounted to the back of my Explorer. Looking forward to loading this up with kids college stuff, coolers for camping and hopefully a deer or two this season. 155554

This is by far the best hitch mounted cargo carrier I have ever seen. It is well made with quality components. Took it on a 750+ mile road trip right out of the box and performance was flawless. Just rock solid with absolutely no vibration. eTrailer always delivered. I ordered it on a Friday and it was delivered on Tuesday ... astonishingly fast for an item that ways close to 70 pounds. eTrailer is the ABSOLUTE BEST on-line retailer ... HANDS DOWN!! 138474

Its doing great ... we love it. Weve used it many times and its always good. The only downside is storage as it is big, but thats what you get.

This review is not about product, I bought hitch trailer and cargo basket they were Easy to assemble and install, they were several scratches on the paint dou to shipping l guess the boxes were completely destroyed but overall they were fine, boli thing is that cargo basket do not come with the reflective sticker as show in some pictures 410482

Super Heavy Duty. Easy to install. Little unexpected on the weight. Very sleek design with nice accessories such as led lights and waterproof baggage. Disappointed that there were areas that the powder coat was chipped off so concern over rust. Also the side plate was smashed. Minor recommendation it to add washers to the mounting frame as the bolt head barely holding on the oversized slots used for alignment. Five stars on design but overall 3 stars due to weight and significant damage. 407640

The product I ordered was received in good condition. This is exactly what I need to take around my extra stuff ( suitcases, coolers, Home Depot stuff) that I do not want to put in my 2013 Cadillace SRX, to mess it up. I was hoping I would get two reflectors on the backside, because I look around for two to fit but is not able find anything suitable. The assemble instruction was a breeze. 67886


Comments

The holes in the back of the carrier are designed for 6-12 inch oval tail lights that would provide the same light functions that a trailer light would offer. Some states require that a cargo carrier be lit like a trailer, particularly if it obstructs vehicle tail lights. See the Related Products section on this page for links.

I bought reflective tape, to not only cover the back but the side. I have a JK Jeep and someone hit it from the side! The light kit is a must but also add washers and some kind of reflection on the side I also did the back, just in case this is an awesome rack though and is still on the back of my Jeep taking all the punishment Ive thrown at it. It is a steep above all other racks IMO, it is somewhat heavy at 75lbs but well worth it for the adventures type or anyone who needs some extra room!

As others have mentioned the shipping box was a bit beat up but arrived quickly with all parts and minimal scratches in the powder coating. Ordered on a Sunday afternoon and half the order arrived on Wed, the rest on Thursday. Setup was quick and I did purchase washers for the rear bolts to give a bit more coverage. I also ordered the Rola LED light kit and cargo net. Both fit perfectly. This thing is strong! Prior to loading I stood on the carrier while on the hitch and jumped up and down. Barley any flex and I am not a light guy by any means. There was very little play once in the receiver and I did not notice any rattles or excess noise on our week long 600 mile road trip. I did not use any type of anti rattle device. With the cargo on the back the passengers and dogs loved having the extra room to move around. As all of my vehicles have hitches so this will be a great addition any time we need extra room or carrying capacity. One thing to note if you are not ordering any pins or locks is that a 5/8 inch pin does not work, you need to have a 1/2 inch pin. Luckily I had both so I was able to use my existing hitch receiver lock. I included pictures of it installed on a 1994 GMC G2500 van. I was able to open both rear doors before loading although the door mounted full size spare did eat up a bit of room. The hitch on the van is bent from an accident by the previous owner so on my application the rack does tilt in towards the vehicle a bit. This is solely due to my hitch, not the rack itself. I did try it on my pickup and it sat nice and level. If you are looking for a cargo carrier I highly recommend the Rola. 414706


Comments

Brian, any time a hitch or hitch accessory has been involved in an accident, it should be replaced to remedy any unseen damage. Heres a link to both the hitches for the 1994 GMC van. You would just need to filter by whether you have the step bumper:

The Rola carrier has a couple thousand miles on it now after several trips and is still holding up great. I do keep it in the garage when not in use so that helps keep it looking good.

After reading reviews for products for a couple months, I settled on and purchased the Rola Cargo Carrier (Item 59502) along with the Tuffbak (Item 59119) and the LED Light Kit (Item 59516) for a recent trip to gulf coast of Florida with my family. Typically with my wife and myself, we don't need the extra room - but I took my parents with us, so needed extra cargo room. This setup worked great on the back of my Toyota 4Runner. The back hatch will not open with the cargo carrier loaded down, but the back window rolled down in the 4Runner making getting to stuff in the cargo area a breeze. As some others had mentioned, the packaging on the carrier (from Rola not etrailer) could be somewhat more sturdy as part of mine had some scratches that I covered with some paint. The carrier itself is incredibly sturdy and love the design. Another reason why I purchased this carrier was being able to add the LED lights which was a great feature. I did not use the hitch pin that came with the product, as I needed one that would lock. Using a locking hitch pin, I also added a hitch stabilizer and had no issues with it moving. I assume using the pin that comes with it would keep you from having to use the stabilizer but I preferred the pin would lock. The lights installed easily and plugged right into the car and worked flawlessly. The bag says its water resistant and not waterproof, however, we had pretty substantial rain on the way home and nothing in the bag got wet. I also added a master lock thru the zipper pulls on the bag and an additional ratcheting tie down. I have zero complaints and it worked great. I had to contact etrailer because one package was delivered but the other was not and I only had one tracking number. They were quick to send me an additional tracking number and even messaged to make sure it made it the next day. Great customer service, would definitely use them again. 429508

A very well built carrier. The carrier was very easy to assemble, it took less than 10 minutes of actual work after getting the parts out of the box and reading the instructions. The optional light kit presented a slight problem. Because the wagon I will haul on the carrier has a wheel base as wide as the carrier, and the tires from the wagon are located right where the light kit sits in the carrier, the tires would pop out the light kit. I went to my local trailer supply and bought 2 brackets for an oblong taillight for $7.95 each. The bracket is attached with 2 nuts and bolts and 2 fender washers to the bottom of the wire cage. If I choose I can still use the same lights in the original location. I can just un-plug the lights, pop them out and pop them back in the original location, plug the wires back on in less than 2 minutes. I noticed a few customer comments about having trouble with installing the light kit wiring. After watching the video on the installation for the light kit, I had no problem with that part of the installation at all. 2141

I was getting tired of throwing gear on the roof rack struggling to get it down and worring about clearance issues or being top heavy (every Jeepers off-roading nightmare). So I started looking for for the impossible a rack with a low center of gravity, that wouldn't affect my ground clearance and most importantly fit with my 35" spare. I found many hitch basket/rack options but either to flimsy, to low to the ground or required dual hitch mounts. Then I found the Rola cargo carrier on etrailer and started having hope. I knew I would have to modify the rack in order to fit my Jeep but at least I could modify it compared to others. The rack is sturdy and doesn't make me lose any ground clearance. I removed the rear chrome crossmember and added some pipe insulation to prevent the metal tabs from rubbing on my spare (only required on mine because of the oversized spare). As the pictures show it fits like a glove and carried 200 lbs of gear like a mule. I have used in George Washington National Forest, up and down the Blue Ridge Trail and looking at taking on my TAT journey. I would recommend to anybody looking for a quality product for a decent price without having to completely modify their vehicle. 305031

Excellent product. Strongly built; not flimsy at all. I like the vertical rise which increases ground clearance. And the larger grate offer many hook points for cargo so you are not limited to only the edges of the platform. I bought the LED lights. Offers excellent, enhanced visibility day and night. While the rubber inserts for the lens housing are not permanent, they hold the lights very well (if inserted correctly). Also, the wiring harness have sufficient lengths (did they improve it? I know there were complaints), biased with one long and one short. For me, perfect lengths for me to route and hook up to the trailer light socket. I would highly recommend it. I am so very pleased that I have finally bought it. I held out the decision to purchase for over a year! I shouldn't have waited. 55833

Love this rack! Super heavy build and excellent quality. Had to flip the chrome brace arm closest to the vehicle to fit under my oversized spare tire but it works. I have a Jeep JKU with 37" tires so... Awesome, heavy duty rack! 317625

Bought this rack for my 2013 Traverse. The outside of the carrier fit within the width of the vehicle, so there was no overhang. The light kit installed easily. Carrier does wobble around a bit when it is unloaded, but wasn't noticeable once it was loaded. I only used the standard pin to secure the carrier. Liked the open bars around the carrier. Made it easier to install and to secure the cargo. My only comment (not a complaint) is that the carrier would be designed to more readily install the light kit. A small notch in the back plate would allow you to run the wiring along the main support tube. There was a slight gap on mine, so I could still run the wiring there but I'm guessing that wasn't intentional. 95005

This item arrived less than 12 hours from when I ordered it! Fantastic! The carrier itself is as good as I expected. It’s very sturdy, hi quality construction. And it looks great. One of the reasons that I chose this particular rack was that it would likely fit on my jeep and clear the spare tire. Unfortunately, it did not fit. 2 of the pics I posted show this issue. I have a substantial 37” tire and I was about 2 ½” short of getting the pin in, & that’s after removing the curved chrome bar on that side to allow more room. So, I ordered a hitch extension with a 4” drop and I added a hitch tightener from [auto parts store]. It works perfectly. The other pics show it installed with plenty of clearance. Overall, I’m super pleased with this with this cargo carrier. 723232


Comments

Glad you were able to make this cargo carrier work for you! Just a reminder that using a hitch adapter or extended reduces your trailer hitch capacity by 50.

Received in a timely manner. Box was a little beat up, but carrier was not beat up at all. Instructions were clear and took about 20 minutes to assemble. etrailer is a great online retailer. Recommend them highly!!!9 717284

So far so good. I read reviews about packaging being poor and product being damaged as a result. My packaging was great. More than adequate. Also read reviews about reflectors and hitch pins not being included. My package had both. Thumbs up. Easy to put together and install. Seems very solid. Only issue is with the cotter pin that is supposed to keep the hitch pin from backing out. If your receiver has a flange on it like my Toyota does you won’t get the cotter pin installed. I replaced it with a price if heavy gauge wire shaped to fit. 675277

Highly recommend! This is my second cargo carrier purchase, my first was a waist of money Reese, for another 70 bucks I could of had the real deal like this ROLA! Take my advise and do yourself a favor and get the real deal, well with the extra bucks! My only complaint is the shipping and handling Was rough! my carrier arrived almost looking used because it was so badly beat up from UPS. A true testament to its build quality. 591877

This cargo carrier is built like a tank! The mesh grate that is used on the floor of the carrier is heavy duty. It does not bend or flex like the grates used on some other carriers I have seen. Using the hitch pin which comes with the carrier takes all the play out of the receiver hitch. This carrier will not sway back and forth or want to twist like some other lighter-duty carriers. Very impressed with the workmanship. 573308

What a great surprise. I was nervous about ordering this without being able to see and feel it but what a great hauler. It is really sturdy, easy to put together (only 12 bolts which took me about an hour to assemble) and etrailer was great to deal with. After I placed the order they even gave me the name and email of a representative to contact if I had a problem. I am using it on my jeep wrangler to increase my hauling room when we head South for the winter. 561090

Solidly built! Looks to be what I expected. I like the riser in the connection btw cargo carrier and hitch. Elevates the carrier in a way that’ll help it clear the ground when off road or going over large bumps,etc. Also, it’s a good looking piece of metal. Has some style. 548846

Great products and even better service! Adam E and the others at etrailer.com were easy to work with on two different orders. Initial order was for a cargo hitch for a 2015 Explorer. Using the installation videos was extremely helpful and the item went on without problem. Follow-up order was for the Rolla cargo carrier. Both items have worked great this far and I expect they will serve us well for years to come. I would definitely use etrailer.com again and recommend to others... 543758

Excellent product! Fast shipping, easy attachment, and wears well. It is very sturdy, functional and attractive. Its high end construction doesn't wobble, or sway, at all. We use it to transport our electric bikes, on the back of our RV and have found it to be exceptionally useful. When we arrive at our long-term destination, we use it to store our travel golf club hardshell carriers. We highly recommend the LED light kit that comes with it, as it safely protects the carrier, whenever attached. We absolutely LOVE it! It was definitely worth the purchase! 486566

The front bumper hitch is so nice and easy to use. Used my own Grade 8 bolts from Lowes, I have a 2016 Ram 3500 Mega Cab, 4x4 HO Diesel with Aisen trans. So the hitch allows me to put a 41' boat in the water with no extra eyes. I DID get the Ram dealer to install the hitch,, it was a well spent $50 bucks. One can also install larger diameter bolts when a real mechanic is the one's hands are trying to keep from breaking their knuckles with the wrenches. I love the hitch... The 600 lb Rola cargo carrier is everything and MORE than advertised. Easy to install, don't need extra help,, Arrived quickly and completely intact... I am well satisfied with everything,, especially MichelleS and etrailer.com... You might want to get the Drawtite Hitch over the curt hitch. The Drawtight mount allows you to avoid scraping the cargo carrier because the Curt hitch mounts much lower and tries to curve up. Much stronger mounting with Draw-Tite on this application. Thanks everyone. Sorry I didn't take photos,, will do better in the future,, lol... Greg 439092

shopped around a long time to find the perfect cargo carrier. I wanted one that was more sturdy than typical, and a bit bigger. The Rola fit the bill. I've used it for more than a year and I have no complaints. Its everything I hoped it would be. I can carry heavy loads with its bigger bed and I have great ground clearance if I'm backing out of a steep area. If you want to get one of the best cargo carriers then get this one. 434381

I ordered the ROLA rear cargo carrier with the rise in the hitch, the ROLA Walleroo(?) carrier expandable bag, the lights and a locking linch pin. I did extensive research to find what I needed for my car. The etrailer videos were extremely helpful. I have a Toyota RAV 4 and the hitch with the rise was the perfect fit. The cargo carrier is sturdy and well made, solid steel. Everything was easy to put together for two 65 year old women. The cargo bag holds an amazing amount of stuff, withstanding rain and road wear very well. All that research paid off with a worry free camping trip. 426169

We wanted a little more space during our road trip, so decided to get this hitch carrier. It assembled quickly, and is so sturdy that I used it to stand on when loading the roof rack. With an Ice chest, Ladder and 100 lbs of camping gear, it didn't wiggle around at all. As a matter of fact, a truck not paying attention bumped into us from the rear, and all it did was scratch the paint a little. A bit of advice: Its heavy, so use two people when attaching or taking it off. 411470

Good heavy duty product. Easy to assemble and looks great on our Jeep. But....? You couldn't include the receiver hitch pin with it? If you are starting from the beginning process you need it. 387889

This is my second carrier. The first one rusted out after about 4 years. This one is only a year old and already very rusty. I guess a poor powder coat job. The carrier itself is strong and does a great job, I just wish it would last longer before it starts to deteriorate. 386986

I don't go anywhere without it! It's perfect for all of our 'stuff' including that leaky cooler we refuse to get rid of. Very sturdy and secure. I love it! 385265


Comments

We use this all the time. It holds everything and has SO many places to hook the bungees that we never worry about our stuff. This fits so well into the receiver that we my husband once forgot to put the pin in the hitch. He remembered about half way thru the trip that he forgot but didn’t say anything. We drove 250 miles to our destination and it was still set in the receiver as deep as it had been. While I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone else, we were very happy that all our stuff was still with us. Mostly the cooler. Have a great night, and thank you for offering such quality products.

Wow, anytime it say's some assembly required I get worried. No need to in this case! The pieces fit perfectly, it is rugged and has lots of tie down points. Super happy with this purchase! 357244

This is a nicely designed, heavy weight and even attractive (for what it is!) product. As others have noted it arrived with some shipping damage. There are 3 heavy steel items in the box and while they are "protected" by strategically placed cardboard the cardboard doesn't really have a prayer! Damage was not too bad though and I'm really happy with this product. Recommend installing with locking anti-rattle hitch pin for a stable platform. 347605

Order arrived very quickly and in good shape, although the box had received its' normal abuse markings from UPS heavy shipment handling. Assembly was a snap and produced an extra sturdy well made carrier. I have seen others for much less but as an addition to a camper which will see many miles on rough roads this year I decided this was the best I had seen advertised and I am not disappointed in the construction or finish on this unit. I'll let you know in six months if it doesn't fulfill my expectations. PS: If you order the light kit I suggest that you run the wires before attaching the bottom tube so the wires can be tied against the bottom and not have to be run under the tube where they could be damaged in handling or storage. 341709

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Recommended Cargo Bag for the Rola Cargo Carrier Part # 59502
  • The correct cargo bag for the Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59502 is the Rola Expandable Cargo Bag part # 59102. This Rola bag is 48" long x 19" wide and the above Rola cargo carrier is 59" long x 22" wide therefore will work well with each other. The other cargo bag you mentioned is the Rola TuffBak Cargo Bag part # 59119 which measures 59" long x 24" wide therefore, will be too wide for the above cargo carrier. The Rola Expandable cargo bag is water resistant and offers up to 11.5 cu....

  • Recommended 2-Inch Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2019 Kia Sorento
  • The hitch I recommend for your 2019 Kia Sorento is the 2-inch model # E98843 which I prefer over the Draw-Tite # 75908 because of its higher weight capacity and because it is USA-made. This model also has a nicer matte black powder coat finish that is more discrete in appearance than the glossy finish on the Draw-Tite. All required mounting hardware comes with the hitch and you can see it installed on a Sorento in the photo I linked for you. I also linked the written instructions, a...

  • Will Rola Dart Clamp-On Fork Mount Bike Carrier Fit Any Rola Carrier
  • Yes, the Rola Dart Clamp-On Fork Mount Bike Carrier, part # 59904 that you picked will fit Rola cargo carriers that have a rail diameter of 1 inch or less. We pulled the Rola 23 x 56 inch carrier # 59502 and put 2 adult road bikes as well as a 15 pound propane tank on this carrier. Attached is a picture of your requested items loaded on a Rola carrier. We did have to angle the bikes slightly to fit the propane tank, however, angling the bikes did not impeded the fastening process. There...

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59502
  • According to our contact at Rola the only way to securely lock the Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59502 would be to use a locking cable like # 107KADSPT to secure carrier to the vehicle/hitch.

  • Will 2 Inch Diameter Lamps Fit into Circular Cut Outs in Sides of Rola # 59502 Cargo Carrier
  • The grommets for 2-1/2 inch lamps are a bit too big to fit into a 2-1/2 inch rough opening. The # A56GB grommet for instance, is meant to mount in a 2-3/4 inch rough opening. If you could enlarge the opening to 2-3/4 inches in diameter, then a 2-1/2 inch lamp like # MCL50RB would fit. If you decided to go this route, you'd tie the power for the lamps into the running lamp circuit. A # A46PB pigtail would be needed for each lamp. Honestly, using reflective conspicuity tape like part...

  • Comparing Rola and Pro Series Cargo Carriers for a 2009 Toyota Highlander
  • The Pro Series carrier # 63153 is a great value. The steel mesh floor of this basket has smaller opening compared to the Rola carriers, # 59502 and # 59550 so it is less likely to allow something to fall through. If you will not be using the carrier very often then I would go with the Pro Series carrier all the way. It can be fitted with light kit # 20174. The middle ground is Rola carrier # 59502. This basket is a little higher quality than the Pro Series but lacks the razzle dazzle...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for Two E-Bikes
  • For your two e-bikes, we have two bike racks I recommend. The Thule EasyFold XT Bike Platform Rack # TH903202, lets you carry 2 e-bikes or other heavy bikes. The padded clamps on adjustable arms hold the bikes on the rack. A foot pedal allows the rack to tilt back with bikes loaded for cargo area access. It folds up for easy storage and includes all the locks to secure the rack to your receiver and your bikes to the rack. This rack can carry two bikes weighing 65 lbs each. The...

  • Do Lights have to be Added to a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • Basically, in any state in the union, if the rear license plate or lights are obscured in any way, a police officer can pull you over, regardless of the specific verbiage of the laws. Beyond that it is just a good idea to add lights for safey. For the Rola cargo carrier # 59502 you can use light kit # 20174. In order to use the lights your vehicle will need to have a 4-Way trailer connector. If your 2012 Toyota Highlander does not have a trailer connector you can use # 118449. I have...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation that Has License Plate Mount and Light Kit Available
  • The Rola Cargo Carrier, part # 59502 has a dedicated spot for mounting a license place if necessary and has an available light kit, part # 20174 for incandescent lamps or # 98174LED for LED lamps. This would fit the cargo bag part # 988501 that you are interested in as well so it would be your best option that wouldn't require any fabrication.

  • 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.

  • Does the 22x59 Rola Cargo Carrier Part # 59502 Come with a Hitch Pin
  • Yes, the 22x59 Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59502 comes with a threaded hitch pin that will allow you to secure the cargo carrier to the trailer hitch. Because it is threaded, it will help with stabilizing the carrier keeping your cargo safe and secure. We also have a light kit for this carrier, the Rola LED Light Kit for Railed Cargo Carriers part # 59516 which will allow you to signal other motorists behind you if your cargo blocks the tail lights on the vehicle. It will plug into a 4-way...

  • Hitch Extender for a Jeep Wrangler and Cargo Carrier to Clear Spare Tire
  • We have a lot of hitch extenders, see link, but keep in mind that when you use a hitch extender it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So for example if the tongue weight capacity of your hitch is 350 pounds and you use an extender that capacity drops to 175 pounds. That means the combined weight of the cargo carrier and cargo cannot exceed 175 pounds in this scenario. Another option is to multipurpose ball mount # D210. Since this is a ball mount...

  • Will Rola 23x56 Cargo Carrier 59502 Work on a Front Mount Hitch Application
  • Yes, the Rola 23x56 inch cargo carrier can be used for front mount hitches. Just make sure that you do not exceed the tongue weight capacity of the front mount hitch. Also make sure that you do not restrict airflow to the engine radiator to prevent over heating. Additionally, you do not want to restrict the headlights. Any of the 2 inch receiver cargo carriers we have will work with your front mount hitch. Just make sure you are not exceeding weight capacities, blocking too much airflow...

  • Attaching License Plate to Cargo Carrier
  • The legalities regarding a cargo carrier obscuring a rear license plate can vary widely by state. Your best bet would be to directly contact the State Police or Department of Transportation in the states in which you will be traveling. Many cargo carriers do not provide a dedicated place to attach a license plate. You could drill two holes through the rear rail in order to bolt the plate in place to temporarily attach the plate, if needed. The Rola Cargo Carrier, part # 59502 has...

You should check out the Rola Hitch Cargo Carrier # 59502. We have a number of FJ Cruiser owners who have used this cargo carrier without any interference with the back door. I attached a couple pictures of this carrier being used on FJ Cruisers for you to check out also. I...

  • Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier to Clear Spare Tire on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • None of the aluminum cargo carriers are going to have a long enough shank to clear the spare tire on your Jeep Wrangler. But for a steel carrier we have some options. Rola carrier # 59502 measures 12-7/8 inches from the center of the pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. And the other option is Pro Series carrier # 63153 which measure 12-3/4 inches from the center of the pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier.

  • Will Rola Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Fit a 2014 Infiniti QX80
  • The Rola cargo carrier # 59502 is designed to fit 2 inch trailer hitch receiver openings. Provided your 2014 Infiniti QX80 has a 2 inch hitch the carrier will fit the hitch. To determine if the carrier will clear the rear of the vehicle there is 1 important measurement you will need to take. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If your measurement is less than 12-7/8 inches, the carrier will clear the rear...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for Jeep Wrangler w/ 35 x 12.50 x 18 Oversize Spare Tire
  • In order to choose a cargo carrier that'll work for you, you'll need to measure the distance from your hitch pin hole rearward to clear the spare tire. The cargo carrier you choose will need to have a hitch pin hole to closest portion of the cargo platform distance longer than the measurement you took. You can look in the product demonstrations for the cargo carriers we offer, all the shank lengths are mentioned. I'd suggest the Curt # C18153, which has a hitch pin hole to basket measurement...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 10 Inch Ground Clearance from Bottom of Hitch Receiver on Winnebago

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...

Hitch adapters are available, such as the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender for 2-Inch Trailer Hitches # MT70070 that you referenced.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation to Carry a Load of 415 lbs on Rough Roads
  • If you are planning on carrying a load of 415 lbs on a cargo carrier on rough roads, then you will want a cargo carrier that is rated significantly higher than your load weight. The downward force of the load after a bump could exceed the 450 lb weight capacity of the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02, and cause damage. I would recommend the Rola Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59502. This cargo carrier has a weight capacity of 600 lbs and is our highest rated hitch mounted cargo carrier...

This carrier weighs 59 lbs whereas the Rola weighs 73 lbs. If the additional weight, price and slightly smaller interior dimensions aren't a problem for you I would go with the Rola. If you don't mind the less appealing looks of the Pro Series I would go with it since from a function point of view...

As long as this distance is less than 7 inches, the carrier would be compatible with your vehicle. Unfortunately, Rola doesn't make a folding version of the # 59502. The Surco...
