Video Transcript for Surco Hitch Cargo Carrier Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the 24 x 60 Surco Cargo Carrier. It's a basket-style cargo carrier. It's designed for use in 2-inch hitches and it offers a 500-pound weight capacity. It's part number is 52018. The cargo carrier is going to allow us to get the gear out of our vehicle and also keep our muddy items outside of the vehicle so it's not getting dirt on the inside. Also it's going to help us free up room for those passengers or pets we might want to take with us. The cargo carrier has a raised side rail. It goes all the way around the perimeter.

It's got a lot of good connection points for straps and things such as that so you can get your cargo secured in there. It's almost 5-1/2 inches off the platform itself. The platform is an expanded steel. It's going to allow you to easily clean it off. The dirt and debris is not going to rest on there.

The carrier itself has a nice sturdy black powder coat finish. It's going to resist any kind of corrosion. The cargo carrier offers an easy bolt-together assembly and it's made completely in the United States. Some additional accessories include a folding shank adapter that lets you tilt the basket up along the rear of your vehicle when it's not in use. That part number is 52015. An optional light kit is required if the cargo is going to block the tail lights of your vehicle.

That part number is 52014. Now that we've gone over some of the features of our Surco Cargo Carrier, let's show you how easily it is to install. inaudible 00:01:32 you're just going to grab your carrier, slide the shank right into the receiver tube of the hitch and were going to secure it using the standard 5/8 pin. The pin and clip is sold separately. You can find it on our website. It's part number is PC3. We'll slide that shank in until we line up the hitch pin hole with the hole in the shank, slide our pin through and secure it with our clip.

It's just that easy. We're ready to load it with some gear and we can hit the road. With our gear loaded up, we're going to take it out and let you see what it looks like going through our test course. We're going to go through the slalom so you can see what it looks like going side to side. We'll go through an alternate bump so you can see what it looks like kind of bumping and twisting and we'll go through our solid bump so you can see what it looks like moving up and down. That will complete today's look at the Surco 24 x 60 Cargo Carrier. Part number: 52018. .

Everything arrived fine. No issues assembling. Looks like a good carrier, but I haven't used it yet. Will use it to haul an antique desk this weekend. There might be an issue with the exhaust blowing on the desk. Guess I'll go buy a short tailpipe extension that curves downward. Using this on a 2015 Forester. etailer is a nice place to buy from. Love the video helps. Good job. 242578

I just received this product and have not yet had a chance to use it. But, my initial impression of the product is very good. I am an engineering geek and look at products very differently than most other people. I look at the welds and materials used, etc. I purchased this product because it is made in the USA and am happy that I did. The welds (which can tell a lot about a product) are all good and well placed. The finish is good and the parts lined up perfectly. Unlike some of the reviews on other products (Chinese made), I did not have to add washers to account for assembly gaps. Paying a little more for a U.S. product is a good thing and typically results in the purchase of a much better product. This product did not disappoint. Once assembled, the product was perfectly flat with no basket flex. This is a very solid product and should work very well on our road trip to North Carolina in a few weeks. As for etrailer, this was my first purchase from them and I was very impressed. They answered all of my questions and the product shipped the same day. 142820

How time files. I love my Carrier. It has been on two long trips now and has worked flawlessly. The carrier is solid, does not bow or flex, and is holding up very well. I also like the hitch bar anti-rattle product I purchased to go with the carrier. Together, they make the carrier very solid and there are no sounds or rattles even when driving down the road at 80 mph. Great product! And, thank you for following up. I really like working with etrailer and continue to do so.

Received the product quickly. It was easy to assemble, a perfect fit. The quality of the workmanship, weld, paint all is excellent. Plan on taking it on a family Christmas vacation with plenty of luggage to haul. The assembly instructions are a little crude and may cause some to be less confident of the process to assemble so, I would suggest an upgrade to the professionalism of those instructions to match the high quality of the actual product. 110902

I routinely travel 1000 miles round trip to a vacation home and wanted a large carrier for coolers and luggage to free up space in my SUV.I looked at alot of carriers on the etrailer website and the detailed information provided for each made comparisons easy.I purchased the Surco 52018 because of its capacity and the fact that it mounts much closer to the rear bumper than other carriers.I also like the security of the 6 inch high sides.The carrier is very well made and a snap to assemble and mount to the vehicle.Ordering was flawless.I received 2 emails to verify purchase and a followup when shipped.Delivery was free and super fast..ordered on a sunday and received on the following wednesday.I highly recommend etrailer and the Surco cargo carrier. 83806

got it in 3 days. very easy to put together but i did add 2 washers on the inside of the main tube bolts so i could tighten them without bending the slot. it is extremely sturdy and well built. i have had another cheaper brand on a work truck and all it did was bend and not fit the reciever tight was very sloppy. this one i would recommend to everyone and also a great job from etrailer for the fast shipping and quality of the product. 54583

This rack looks great. I love how low profile it is to the back of the truck. I have about 4.5" of clearance from the bumper on my 2012 Durango. I haven't used it yet but when I installed it, it seemed very well made. I would definitely recommend getting an anti-rattle hitch pin though. It had quite a bit of play to it when I first installed it but when I tightened up the bolt on the anti-rattle hitch pin I got there was only about a half inch of up and down movement when I pushed on one end with my body weight (220lb). 44114

Nice carrier. I went ahead and purchased stainless steel bolts for longevity purposes. Worked well on my camping trip. Two things would make it even better: Reflective tape on the back facing traffic, and a stabilizer for the hitch insert to prevent rocking back and forth (minimal if you pack it right). At this time, I do not have a need for the folding basket adaptor, but is available if necessary. This is one of the biggest on the market, and I like the 500lb. capacity. Easy to put together, just put it together on a flat level surface and you will not have an issue. All in all, a great product, I would definately recommend. The best part, the carrier is MADE IN THE USA. 22566


Comments

they make a hitch lock that tightens and will eliminate the rocking.

David is correct the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Lock # 63232
Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span
$29.91
works great to reduce any wobble that you may have on the Surco cargo carrier. We also a some reflective tape that you might be interest in like the # RE418T
7" Long White/ 11" Long Red Conspicuity Reflective Tape - (4) 18" Strips

This carrier was simple to put together, four bolts and perhaps 10 minutes. It seems to be rugged and quality made. It arrived in good shape. The carrier is not too heavy for one to handle. You lean it up onto the hitch and lever the opposite end up and in. As others have mentioned, I'm not sure about the durability of the paint. I've been careful but its already scratched. The carrier fits very loosely in our hitch, a anti-rattle device is a must I think. It is a larger carrier and can get in the way of loading/unloading the hatch. The carrier fits nicely up to the rear bumper on my 2011 JGC, and is at a perfect height. An excellent product that I downgraded simply because of the paint finish and how loose it fits in the hitch. 21263

I actually purchased two cargo carriers (The Surco 52018 with light kit 52014 and ROLA Hitch Carrier 59502 with light kit 20174). Both cargo carriers are well made and good choices for users desiring heavy duty, quality carriers. I would recommend either one. There are some minor differences that you might consider important. The Surco has an 8-9 inch shank that comes straight back from the car. Therefore it sits closer to the car and lower to the road. The advantage could be that with a low cargo an SUV gate might still open and of course you have a few less inches off the back of your car. The cargo space is 24 x 60 vs about 22 x 56 on the ROLA. This might be important with 24" suitcases (a standard size). The ROLA has a 15 inch shank that angles up, raising the carrier several inches higher than the Surco and a few inches further from the back of the car. The deck of the ROLA is slightly smaller, but is rated for 600 pounds vs 500 pounds. Both light kits work well, but the person who installed both for me liked the Surco because if attached to a bar rather than in the rubber/vinyl inserts. I think they are both good and would suggest you opt for the carrier that best suits you and then buy the light kit that is designed for it. Etrailer.com filled the order quickly, personalized the e-mail follow-up and had the product at my door in just a few days. 9981

Fantastic product. I researched hitch carriers and kept coming back to this one. It is perfect and does everythign I need. My 7 year old is in morocross and we haul his mid size motorcycly (170 lbs) up and down the interstate to the tracks. It performs perfectly. E.trailer is probably one of th ebest companies to deal with. This was the first purchase fro me from E.trailer. The day I oddered I recieved 2 e-mails to verify my purchase. then a follow up when it shipped and then another follow up when it was on my front porch. Stellar experience all the way around. Highly reccomend E.trailer and the hitch carrier. 7629

From the moment I hit send on my online order the communication with etrailer has been excellent. It delivered super fast and all seems to be great with the order.

Nice Carrier Pretty nice carrier, easy to assemble. Two things wrong is 1) I had to use 2 washers as shims on each bolt to make carrier level. 2) Bolts could have been galvanized or stainless steel cause I can see having to replace them due to rust. 4266



- 52018
by:

Seamless Great product. Like others mentions, they should add a few washers to serve as spacers between hitch bar and the carrier itself. There is 1.5 washers space to be taken up there. Otherwise tightening bolts bends the frame of basket. Excellent quality otherwise. Would buy again 3849

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Can Curt Cargo Carrier be Put Together With Shank Reversed
  • The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 would not be able to be reversed but what you could do instead, if you do not like the rise in the shank of the Curt carrier, is use the Surco Cargo Carrier # 52018 which has a straight shank and is the same size as the Curt. This carrier would work in the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65063 that fits your 2017 Ram 2500. You will need either Pin and Clip # PC3 or Anti-Rattle Lock # 63232 to secure the carrier to the hitch. Additionally,...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carriers with 24 Inches of Internal Width
  • An object that is exactly 24 inches wide would not fit in Curt carrier # C18152 because some of the hardware holding the carrier together would get in the way. Better options include Surco folding carrier # 52018F and fixed carrier # 52018 because the hardware does not stick out into the cargo area on either one of these. I have included links to video reviews on both carriers for you.

  • Can you Attach a Ball Mount to the End of a Cargo Carrier to Tow a Boat Trailer
  • I do have an option that will allow you to carry a cargo carrier and tow your 2,500 lb boat, however, a ball mount cannot attach to the end of a cargo carrier to tow a trailer. Instead, check out the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. This ball mount will allow you to tow your trailer with the lower ball mount and carry your cargo carrier using the receiver. The towing capacity of this ball mount is 7,500 lbs and the tongue weight capacity is 750 lbs. The receiver weight capacity...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier to Clear Spare Tire on 1999 Jeep Wrangler
  • The first step in choosing a cargo carrier for your Wrangler would be to determine how much clearance is needed. Measure from the hitch pin hole of your receiver rearward until you can clear the spare tire.You will then need to choose a cargo carrier whose hitch pin hole to closest portion of the cargo tray dimension exceeds your measurement. The problem you might find is that the pivot that allows the carriers to fold takes up quite a bit of space on the shank, so that when the carrier...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-150 With Minimum Tailgate Interference
  • Hitch mount cargo carriers were certainly not designed to be used as a step, but I will admit that I have used a cargo carrier to climb into the back of a truck before. The weight capacity should not be an issue since each of the cargo carriers you mentioned have a weight capacity of 500 lbs, but the wobble could make the step uneasy if you do not step directly in the center of the cargo carrier. You should also keep in mind that the floor of the cargo carrier is metal and moisture could...

However, the Curt carrier will need more than 9 inches of clearance and the Surco will need more than 5 inches of clearance form the hitch pin to the edge of the spare tire to mount on your Jeep.

  • Towing a Trailer and Using a USA Made Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier at the Same Time
  • Surco carriers such as # 52018 are made in the USA. But none of the carriers that we have will allow you to tow a trailer with the ball mount in the end of the carrier. However, there is a solution. You could use the Curt multipurpose ball mount # D210. The upper receiver portion can be used for the carrier and the lower ball mount portion for the trailer.

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Trailer Hitch
  • I have a solution for you, but the Pro Series Cargo Carrier part # 63153 that you referenced cannot have a bike rack attached to the end of it. Instead check out the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Platform 4 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier # HR1400Z-85. This is a hitch mounted bike rack and cargo carrier combo that it sounds like would be perfect for you. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well.

  • Fit of Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier #M2200 on a 2012 Toyota Highlander
  • To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier will fit on your 2012 Highlander, you will need to take a measurement off of your hitch. Measure the distance rearward from the hitch pin hole until the furthest rearward portion of the bumper is cleared. If this measurement is less than the 4 inch hitch pin hole to basket measurement of the Carpod Carrier, it will fit. This being said, I would not recommend using it unless your measurement was 3 inches or less, to allow an inch space between...

  • I spoke with my contact over at Thule and they say that using a cargo basket with the Thule Cantilever # TH24002XT and Thule TracRac SR # TH43002XT-780 is not typically something that they've seen and have not tested this application use on this product. Just because they haven't seen it, doesn't mean that it can't be done, but it was noted that the Cantilever bar was not designed to carry an extremely heavy load-it was simply designed to help spread out the weight on longer loads.
