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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (64 Customer Reviews)

Tilting, enclosed, hitch-mounted cargo carrier offers a great solution to transporting your gear. Includes a lock to keep it closed. 13 Cubic feet, 150-pound capacity. Works on 1-1/4" (Class II only) and 2" trailer hitches.


Took it on it's first trip, about 600 miles round-trip. I was super-impressed! Easy to assemble, easy to load. I honestly couldn't even tell that it was on there while driving, it was so quiet! I have a 2019 Toyota Highlander and it fit perfectly. I was even able to fully open the back door/hatch with no interference from the cargo carrier. It cleared by 1 1/2". Super durable and I highly recommend!


Delivered in great condition. Assembly is not a problem. 13mm and 19 mm socket works much better than tools provided. Takes about 1 hour to assemble. Thanks Caroline for your follow up.


It is still sitting in my garage unfinished. The directions were too difficult to follow so I just stopped putting it together. It was also much smaller than it appeared. I would like to return it

I am sorry to hear that you haven unable to use the carrier. I know that you would like to return it however it is too far past our 60-day return policy that we would be able to accept the return. I am happy to see I can help with the assembly. Which part of the assembly has been difficult?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 09/20/2022


Really happy with it for our purposes. Works well on our 2014 Subaru outback. This is a great fit for us because it facilitates extra storage while still being able to use rooftop ski carrier or transport a canoe. The opposite would be true for folks wanting to use a bike hitch rack, But we don't tend to do as many gear heavy bike trips as we do other activities.


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.

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

Can you open the window and tailgate when tilted down? Thanks.
-- comment by: Chris - 11/17/2013


Very happy with the cargo carrier. The directions are not terribly clear but still I managed to put it together. Took some time to find the keys as they were wrapped up in the plastic instead of being set aside.


During installation I noticed that the box is not level. Contacted the retailer which direct me to Thule. I contacted them several times regarding warranty and they have not responded at all.


It's a good size. I worry about water getting in it though. It could be studier. Everything worked fine: breaks and blinkers. The real test will be trying to lift it to insert into 2" hitch when ready to use. Hare Krsna


It was pretty easy to assemble, but I haven't actually used it yet. The box is light and the frame is quite heavy. I like the easy mount for the license plate on the back. Everything seems to be well built.

Still working well! Its sturdy, secure, easy to use. I would definitely buy it again.
Damien M - 03/08/2022


Good price, arrived quick, easy to install and was able to retrofit so that it goes all the way down to the floor (when empty) so that I can still open the back doors of my Pro-Master 1500 Class B RV. Driven 1500 miles so far with it all good!


Received the order on time. Excellent quality. Easy to assemble to install on my car. Large capacity. Does not affect gas mileage or steering/braking


I do like it but it needs more strength in the bottom. The bottom cracked the first time I used it. I patched it with duct tape and it's fine but I wouldn't buy another unless they made the bottom stronger

This has a limited lifetime warranty. Customer Service will contact you to discuss this.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 11/10/2021


While it’s too early for a full review as I haven’t had the box on the road yet I can say that the ordering and shipping went very well. Assembly went well but I needed to do a bit of “creative thinking” along the way as the directions were a wee bit vague. But no big deal. I had the thing together in about a half hour. All the wiring was perfect. The plate holder installed easily.
For those with the Toyota Highlander, the box tilt feature is not needed as the rear hatch clears without using it with inches to spare. All in all it looks like it will perform as expected.

Ive only used the carrier once. It was on a long trip over close to 1000 miles. The box was completely full and loaded to its max weight. It was hitched to a Toyota Highlander. Weather was mixed with clear, rain and snow. The box handled extremely well and was barely noticeable. The running, signal and break lights worked perfectly. Upon arrival all contents were dry. We carry our pet dog in the back of the SUV so access to the back hatch was required. It was nice that the box is located far enough back to allow the back hatch door to swing up without hitting the box. Great product.

We ordered the Thule cargo carrier one year ago. It is fairly lightweight, but sturdy enough to transport items we need on trips. We also have a soft carrier that we have used that goes on the top of our vehicle. The advantages of the Thule carrier is that it does hold almost as much as the roof carrier, but does not cause wind resistance while we are driving. It is much easier to load & secure with a locking key. We are absolutely thrilled with the purchase of this product!


Great for our extra luggage!


Extremely HappyThe 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.

Will the Thule Hitch Cargo Carrier - TH665C allow the rear doors to open on a Sprinter van?
-- comment by: Rod - 10/21/2013


Shipped and delivered on time, communication re the freight delivery was on point. Great item, easy to install and holds A LOT of stuff.


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.


For camping and to take extra stuff this product is ideal.


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.


Very nice, easy setup


Received in excellent condition and right on time.


Prompt delivery, the 3rd one I had and very pleased.


Easy to mount on car and was shipped in a very timely manner. Thanks so much!


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.
