Treated us very well so far! Trekked my wife and I all around Colorado last year with no issues. Heading to Maine this year surely to get similar results.

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.


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

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.

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.

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.

bought the Surco Cargo Carrier 24x60 for 2 in hitch. IT came 1 day early,looked great. Only 3 parts and 5 bolts. So easy to put togather,15 min. Not going on my trip until 18 july. will send picture when loaded.



- 52018

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.

Can"t wait to try it! I just received my cargo carrier and so far am very happy with it. I haven't had a chance to use it yet but I am very optimistic. The assembly was a snap. A brain dead monkey can put it together blindfolded. I did have to use washers where the carrier attaches to the bar though. Washers would have been nice to get with the hardware bag. Again I am optimistic about how it will perform on the trip from the west coast to the east coast and back. Delivery was quick and the sales staff sent me the shipping information first thing Monday morning. I will recommend this site to everyone I know. Thanks.

revision to my information 5 years later. This is the best item I have ever bought for a hitch. I have used it numerous times and have lent it out to many friends that also loved it. I recommend this thing to everyone I talk to that shows a need or interest in it.

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).

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.

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.

The design is very sturdy and well-made. We took this product on a long road trip from Wisconsin to North Carolina. Another plus is that this basket is made in the USA and of much higher quality than its chinese-made competitors.

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.

Awesome Product & Saves Lives I bought one of these 3-4 years ago and use it all the time. Last weekend i had it installed on my Navigator and was rear ended by a F-450 landscape truck. This took the entire 30mph impact the tubes bent in against my bumper but the 2' steel support shaft stoped his truck and caused damage to his car but left my car realitivly unharmed and my 2 yr. old safe.



- 52018
by:

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.

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.

Fits my jeep perfectly. This hitch fit perfectly on my 2006 jeep wrangler. The hitch clears the bumper by about 3 or 4 inches and the stock 245-75-16 spare tire by 0.5 inches. I can easily fit two bikes or a large deer on the carrier.

In Time for Christmas Ordered a hitch mounted cargo carrier for Christmas - in procrasting what to get my friend, did place the order until Sunday, 12/19, to be shipped to California. Wrapped a picture of the carrier to place under tree - no way was the carrier going to be here before Christmas. Lo and Behold - it arrived early Christmas Eve. AWESOME service.............

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

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Trailer Hitch

    As both items are 36 inches wide, both the Yakima SkyBox 21 and FatCat 6 will not fit on a 66 inch crossbar.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 2002 Chevy Silverado
    As long as your 2002 Silverado is equipped with a 2 inch trailer hitch, most of the cargo carriers we offer for a 2 inch hitch would work just fine. Since a cargo carrier isn't a vehicle-specific item, I don't have a listing of what carrier fits which vehicle.
