Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier

The Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier is a rugged yet affordable hitch mounted cargo carrier with a great look and great price. The carrier simply slides into existing 1-1/4" (Class II only) or 2" receiver hitches and makes loading and unloading your gear easy and convenient as it's done at lower height. Having the carrier in the back of the vehicle is also more fuel efficient than a roof mounted carrier. With its tilt-down design, you can easily access the back of your vehicle in seconds. The carrier includes a lock to secure the items inside it. Included is a license plate light with holder and pre-wired taillights with a standard four-pin trailer connector ready to plug in and go. Carries up to 13 cu. ft. and 150 lbs. A plug/valve in the bottom of the cargo carrier makes clean up quick and easy.

Video Transcript for Thule Hitch Cargo Carrier - Enclosed Carrier - TH665C Review

Today we are going to be showing you part number 665C from Thule. This is their transporting and tilting enclosed cargo carrier. It slides into an inch and a quarter hitch, class 2, receiver or a 2 inch hitch which due to its lower height makes loading much easier. It has a tilt down design which makes gaining access to the rear of the vehicle that much easier. It also includes a lock for extra security. Now it also has an optional light and holder for a licensee plate for those long trips down the road which requires you to punch holes in the front of the cargo carrier. This carrier has 13 cubic feet of carrying space and has a weight capacity of 150 pounds. There is also a plug on the bottom of the carrier which makes cleaning a cinch.

Now we will demonstrate how this carrier works and show you some of the finer features we have just mentioned. We will start off with the front side of the carrier and work our way back. Now right now you cannot open this carrier as it is locked. Which is like we mentioned before for added security. Now you just need the key that comes with the carrier. Place it in the lock and turn and the carrier opens. If you look in the cargo carrier here you can see how spacious it really is. Also there is the plug valve here which actually makes cleaning a cinch. Moving further down from that you have the 2 tail light assemblies which do connect to a 4 pole connector. Also right underneath the lock you can see these 3 divots here that actually provide the set up point for your license plate holder. Moving on to the back of the cargo carrier. We will show you, this is the 4 pole connector. That will actually feed power to the tail light assemblies on the back of the carrier. You simply plug it in it to the 4 pole flat in your vehicle and it should run just fine.

To do that you probably want to actually wrap this around a couple times just to get it better secure. And then, the carrier comes equipped with a zip tie to tie this down. Then you just simply plug it into your 4 pole flat. Next is probably the most important function of this cargo carrier is the actual tilting function. If you look back here there is actually a pin you have to pull and then you can gentle let it down to gain more access to the rear of your vehicle. Pull it out and now you have more access to the rear of your vehicle. Now we are going to show you some of the tail light functions of this. To operate these lights you simply turn on the power to your lights. Then you can see it comes on. They also have a left turn, as well as a right turn. They also have a brake function. And just about anything that your car can do, these tail lights will do. There you have it for part number 665C from Thule, the transporter and tilting cargo carrier.

Lives up to the Thule name Actual carrier lacked description for installation, but it seemed pretty straightforward. Completed and ready for a trip. Don't trust what the dealer says about the wiring hookup. Mine told me it wasn't there so I purchased the extra wiring kit. After following the instructions for some time, I discovered the factory installed harness underneath the vehicle to the left of receiver. Thankfully, etrailer is taking back the kit as I don't need it. 2096

- TH665C

Terrible Good! I bought one of these back in 2003. I've used it on my Saab wagon, T&C van and Mazda5. It is great for long trips. We just throw in the cargo we plan to use at the motel stops, and store most other destination baggage in the car or van. Great additional space for a travelling family of 5. I store it by hoisting it to the garage ceiling. 2192

We bought this product one year ago. We have used it for some short trips locally, as well as a longer 3 week family vacation. It was exactly as advertised. Installation was a breeze, and I am not very mechanically inclined. We installed it on a Honda Odyssey mini van. The only minor drawback, and this is not product related, is that it does ride low on a minivan, due to placement of the hitch. That being said, we only hit the ground once going up a inclined driveway, and the product suffered no damage. Opening and closing of the product is easy. It holds the advertised weight. The break lights work well. Really made a long cross county trip much roomier for the family. 610681

Easy to access, convenient I bought this a couple of years ago to free up space in our SUVs while traveling and tailgating. I love it and constantly get questions about it from other people. It is easy to access, locks, keeps things dry and protected. Because of the dimensions, I do recommend packing things in duffel bags rather than hard suitcases, and you'll be able to get a lot more in it. It does not interfere with you view or driving. In fact, you may forget it is attached. The only disadvantage of this model (compared to the Terrapin) is that it can be difficult to tilt and get back if it is fully loaded and you need access to the tailgate. 3400

- TH665C

Extremely Happy The amount of storage capacity, and ease of use with this product is outstanding. Having this has enabled us to use the back of our SUV for the dogs and we have never run out of space yet. Easy to assemble, easy to use, kept our luggage dry in a snow storm, we are very happy we purchased this. We would however suggest getting the locking thule hitch pin, the bolt that comes with it works but you can't lock it and prevent theft of the whole unit without the lock. 809


Will the Thule Hitch Cargo Carrier - TH665C allow the rear doors to open on a Sprinter van?

-- comment by: Rod - 10/21/2013


We have not fitted this to a Sprinter, so we cannot say for sure. But I can help you get a good idea of where the carrier will sit. Measure 7-1/2 inches, straight back, from the pin hole on your hitch. Take a yard stick or dowel rod and hold it vertically to the ground at that point. That is just about where the carrier will sit.

The Hitch and Cargo carrier are very easy to install and looks great in the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. It fits with the spare tire on the back. 79172


Thanks for the photo, I have a 2012 2dr wrangler sport that i love , but when my children come to visit, i always have a luggage issue, do you think the transporter can carry three carry on size luggages, and overall has it been working out for you, I thank you in advance for your time

-- comment by: aborn76 - 05/24/2013


I have sent an email to Tim letting him know about your question. If he has anything to add, it will appear below his review. I have spent some time with this carrier, and 3 small carry on bags is doable, depending on their exact size. If it helps the inside dimensions of the carrier are 48-1/2 long x 23-1/4 high x 24-1/2 wide (inches).

-- Patrick B - 5/25/2013


Can you open the window and tailgate when tilted down? Thanks.

-- comment by: Chris - 11/17/2013


The Transporter will not tilt down far enough to allow a swing-door to open. It will allow some vertical-open hatch doors to open. I have included a link to a photo of the Transporter tilted all the way down for you to check out.

Exceeds expectation! Wonderful addition to ease pressure of packing. Gives Dog plenty of space to ride comfortably! 386397

- TH665C

The product is exactly as advertised. It gives me the extra space in my SUV for my large Labrador pet. The only drawback is that in my advanced age, because of the weight of the unit, I am unable to handle the hook-up and release, although it is rather simple to accomplish. 625567

- TH665C

This product was great. Cargo stayed dry and no increase in drag as with cartop carriers. Even though our back lights were not obcurred it was nice knowing the designers considered this and provide lights on the back, just in case. We found we could still open our rear hatch (Audi Q5) without having to tilt the box. 585990

Ask the Experts about this Thule Hitch Cargo Carrier

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?

  • Which Enclosed Hitch Cargo Carrier is Most Secure from Theft
  • Between the three you mentioned we can eliminate the Rola cargo carrier part # 59109 right off the bat as it has by far the weakest lock system. The locks are similar to what you'd see on a briefcase and the lid is position in such a way that it would be the easiest to pry off. The winner in my opinion is the GearDeck 17 Enclosed Cargo Carrier # H00604 when used with a padlock part # ACC3250 because not only is the pad lock more secure than the Thule Combi # TH665C lock the way the carrier...

  • Replacement Bulb For The Thule Transporter Cargo Carrier Part # TH665C
  • I do have a solution for you however, we do not sell just the replacement bulb for the Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier part # TH665C as the replacement bulb and lense are a sealed unit and cannot be separated. In order to replace the bulb and lens assembly, you will need the Replacement Tail Light for Thule Terrapin or Transporter part # TH05252. To replace the lense assembly, you must first open the lid to the cargo box and remove the bottom plastic lining...

  • Replacement LED and Incandescent Lights for the Thule Transporter
  • Yes, the LED light part # STL35RB can be used to upgrade the lights in a Thule Transporter Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier part # TH665C. I went out to the warehouse and test fitted the LED lights inside the original grommet that comes with the Transporter part # 05253. The pigtail that comes with the Transporter part # TH05254 fits the LED lights so there will not be an issue plugging the new lights in.

  • Covered Carrier Recommendation for Jeep Wrangler and Unity Leisure Travel RV

For your application I recommend the 24x48-3/4 Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02. This is essentially a cage that comes with a bag to help protect your cargo against the weather. You can add a lock to the cage with the Master Lock # ML312KA and then you can lock the shank of the carrier with the part # 63232. As for rear clearance on your Jeep and...

  • How Many Carry On Bags Will Fit In The Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier
  • It depends on the size of your carry on but if you go by the largest universally accepted carry-on luggage size for domestic flights within the U.S which is 22" x 14" x 9" you could probably fit about 8 of them in the Thule Transporter Combi part # TH665C depending on how full the bags are. The Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier holds 13 cubic feet. One 22" x 14" x 9" bag will take up a little over a cubic foot and a half of space.

  • Available Class II Hitch Cargo Carriers for 1-1/4-Inch Hitches
  • The hitch cargo carriers made for 1-1/4-inch Class I and Class II hitch receivers will usually not be the folding type. The reason is that any folding/hinge mechanism will introduce a point of weakness in the carrier's structure, as compared to a fixed carrier without a hinge. When you are already starting off with the smaller 1-1/4-inch shank, adding more potential for weak spots deters carrier makers from trying to make a folding hitch cargo carrier for these hitches. We do have one...

  • Comparing Thule and Rola Enclosed Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carriers
  • If weight carrying capacity is an issue, going with the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110, if you have a 2 inch receiver, would be the way to go. If you have a 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitch receiver, then the correct Rola carrier is # 59108 and it also has a capacity of 150 pounds like the Thule model, # TH665C. If you are choosing between the two models for a 1-1/4 inch hitch, then I would go with the Rola carrier, # 59108, because even though they have the same capacity, the...

  • Assembling the Thule Transporter Combi Enclosed Cargo Carrier
  • I've attached the install details of the Thule Transporter Combi, part # TH665C, and the review video but it doesn't show the assembly. The assembly itself isn't all that involved. You need to connect the frame to the stinger, the main box to the frame with the liner, and then the tilt mechanism. Then you secrue the wiring harness. I wish we had a video of us putting the box together for you. Is there a particular step in the install details that isn't clear?

  • Which Size Thule Motion XT Cargo Box has Least Wind Resistance on a 2011 Subaru Tribeca
  • For the Thule Motion you are correct about the 16 cubic foot models, # TH6297B for black or # TH6297T for silver, would be the best bet to limit wind resistance on your 2011 Subaru Tribeca. Another option is to use the Rightline hatch saddlebag # RL100B90. Since it is at the back of the vehicle it won't add any wind resistance. And yet another option is to install a trailer hitch, # 75716, and then use an enclosed carrier such as the Transporter # TH665C, Rola carrier # 59110, or...

  • Enclosed Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Chrysler Town and Country Allows Hatch to Open
  • It's hard to say for certain if having the Thule Cargo Carrier part # TH665C installed on your 2013 Chrysler Town and Country will allow you to open the rear hatch fully since we haven't had the chance to test it. A better option that I can guarantee will allow you to open your rear hatch with the carrier opened is the Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier # 59109. This swings out and away from the rear of the vehicle for unrestricted access to the rear of the vehicle.

The biggest upsides you will find from the roof cargo carriers is accessing the cargo and of course the cost difference for the amount of cargo you can carry.

You must abide by the lowest of the two figures if they are different. Remember, the weight figures you found are the weight capacity of the carriers. You also have to take into account the weight of the carrier itself. The Rola carrier, part # 59109, has a capacity of 250 pounds and the carrier weighs about...
