etrailer cargo carrier

This cargo carrier lets you transport your gear on the back of your vehicle. It tilts down for cargo area access even when it's loaded with gear, and you can fold it up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. It has raised side rails that help contain your gear and provide tie-down points, and the steel mesh floor offers stability for your cargo.


Tilting and Folding Design

etrailer cargo carrier

The carrier tilts down - even when it's loaded with gear - so you can easily access your vehicle's rear cargo area. Before you tilt the carrier make sure your cargo is strapped down and secure. Simply support the front edge with one hand, remove the pins located in the upper and center shank holes, and gently lower the carrier.


etrailer cargo carrier

When the carrier is not being used, you can fold it up against the back of your vehicle. This lets you fit into your garage and other tight parking spaces without removing the basket. To fold the basket up, just remove the pin from the center shank hole, fold the rack up toward your vehicle, then reinsert the pin into the bottom shank hole.


Raised Side Rails

etrailer cargo carrier

The carrier has raised side rails that help keep your cargo in place. The rails also provide multiple anchor points for a cargo net, bungee straps, or other tie-downs.


Angled and Extended Shank

etrailer cargo carrieretrailer cargo carrier

The shank on this carrier is raised to improve ground clearance, and to make it easier for you to load and unload your cargo. It also extends the basket away from your vehicle, which helps prevent contact with your bumper or rear-mounted spare tire when the carrier is folded up.


Easy Assembly and Durable Construction

etrailer cargo carrier

The carrier is easy to assemble. Simply bolt it together with the included hardware. The basket is made of heavy-duty steel with a rust-resistant black powder coat finish, and it has an easy-to-clean mesh floor. Reflectors (sold separately) are available to increase the carrier's visibility at night. You can also add a light kit (sold separately), which is required if your gear blocks your vehicle's tail lights.


Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin

etrailer cargo carrier

An anti-rattle, threaded hitch pin is included for securing the carrier to the hitch receiver. Align the hole in the shank with the hole in your vehicle's hitch, screw the pin into the hole, and secure with the clip. This will reduce noise and movement of the carrier in your hitch.

Great product that seems well made for the price and the tilting/folding is a great feature. The product is simple to put together. I'm going to add a few reflectors to it for safety, but otherwise no complaints at all. Would buy again. 636331

We are impressed by the quality and ease of installation. I like how easy it is to fold up while it’s not in use. It’s not in the way of opening the back either..The only thing we had to do was look for instructions online to install cause it was hard for us to read the paper. We can’t wait to use it for our upcoming beach trip. 616009

This product is strong and sturdy, and the welds are strong and well finished. The powder coating is of the highest quality. Assembly is easy, with clear instructions. This carrier is rated for 500 pounds, but feels like it could easily handle twice that weight. Top quality!!! 633786

Easy to Assemble. Included wrench is thick walled so I was unable to use it for tighten the anit-rattle bolt with it, as it was too close to my tube hitch. Very sturdy, even with the fold up and tilt forward features. Does move a decent amount when folded up. One feature I would like to see added is some sort of reflective tape, even if it is optional to apply. This carrier is substantially larger than the one I am replacing it with. I applied reflective tape to my old one, since it gives me comfort that drivers behind me are aware that it is there. Overall a well made and budget friendly product, which is no surprise from the knowledgable staff at etrailer.com. 643639

Please be VERY, VERY careful! Inside of this is threaded for a bolt. Please do not put finger inside to try and line up the pen/bolt. I lost the end of my fingertip installing it!! It does not slide easily as it has some weight to it nd hard to line up to thread bolt in. Also to adjust it up and down is very hard as pens do not slide in/out easily. I'd recommend help so you don't hurt yourself! I would recommend the product but with extreme caution! Would also be nice if it had reflectors for night. Other than the install I think its good product and worked for short trip. But please use extreme caution installing as well as taking apart. 635714

We have ordered from etrailer before. This is a Christmas gift, so I don't have a review of this product. We love our rack that we are using now and depend on it very often. This is why we chose etrailer again. Shipping and delivery were very efficient. 729710

Product seems to be heavy duty and well built. The installation instruction were very hard to read. The diagrams were way to small. It was missing hardware and one of the larger bolts was stripped prior to installation. So I had to make a trip to the hardware store to complete the assembly. The tools provided would be helpful for those that do not have the proper tools for assembly. When I initially placed my order it said it would be delivered before Christmas and that was over 5 weeks away. But it arrived in less than a week. So shipping was faster than expected. Overall, this carrier seems to be a well made product. We will be using it on our family vacation in a few weeks so I will update this review after we get back. 728563

This is a unique cargo carrier. I wanted the ability to fold it up when not in use, which it does. I also appreciate the tilt function, which means one does not need to unload and reload the cargo tray to access the rear hatch area. It has a bolt tensioner to secure the load from vibration and a clamp to make installs easier. This is the only cargo carrier I found on the web that has all these features. Also, very sturdy metal is used throughout. An e-trailer exclusive. 719833

I like everything so far except the screw in bolt to secure the basket to the car trailer hitch. I would prefer one that just slips in with a clip. Very easy to assemble. 663811



- e98874
by:

The product seems very well made, but I have not used it yet. I plan on hauling items on the back of my Audi Q7, so I think the tilting feature will allow easier access to items store in the rear lift gate. On the other hand, the packaging for this product was horrible! As with several other large items I have ordered from etrailer, the cardboard boxes they use are not designed for the weight of the contents. On this occasion, nothing seemed to be missing, but the rack is scratched up. 661279

I ordered this on a Monday and it was shipped (free shipping) from MO to MA and I had it on my door step by Friday ! It was Very easy to attach to our vehicle (2018 Chevy Traverse) , my husband was able to do it by himself. We used it the next day to go to the beach and it worked out wonderful! It will fold up to get out of way when unloaded. Will also tilt down with the load on so we can open back hatch. This is perfect for us and the price was very reasonable! 659246

Do you have a question about this Hitch Cargo Carrier?


  • Will The 24x60 Cargo Carrier E98874 Block the Tail Lights on a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier part # E98874 is not too wide for your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe. However, I believe what you may be concerned with is the cargo carrier blocking the tail lights while folded up. If that is the case then what you will want to do is measure outward 30" from the center of the trailer hitch. That will give you a good idea of where the edge of the basket will sit that way you can see if your tail light will be visible. The other option you have is to install...

  • What is a Safe Minimum Height for a Cargo Carrier?
  • A hitch mounted cargo carrier doesn't have a specified height requirement. You are correct that the longer the carrier extends the less ground clearance it will have on an inclined angle like a driveway. Some carriers have a rise integrated into the shank for that very reason like # E98874. This carrier has a 2 inch rise to change the angle. If you will be towing on level ground, a minimum height of 8 inches is enough for the suspension travel, but I personally would shoot for 12 inches...

  • Hitch Height of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch When Installed on a 2018 Chevy Equinox
  • When we installed the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36642 on a 2018 Chevy Equinox we found that from the ground to the top inside of the hitch receiver measured 11". Since you are looking to use a cargo carrier I recommend using the 2" hitch receiver # 76419 instead because it gives you a lot more options when it comes to using a cargo carrier. The ground clearance for this was 10-7/8" when we installed it on a 2018 Equinox. These are your best options for ground clearance with a trailer...

  • I have the perfect hitch option for your 2020 Toyota Sienna. The etrailer.com 2" hitch part # e98853 is a hidden cross tube design. The only portion of the trailer hitch that will be visible once installed is the receiver square. I have attached some photos for your reference. The cargo carrier I recommend to transport your flea market treasures is etrailer.com 24x60 Cargo Carrier part # e98874 for 2" hitches.

  • Wiring for 2015 Jeep Renegade Sport for Lights on Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • If your 2015 Jeep Renegade Sport already has a functioning 4-Way connector then yes, you can use the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76021 along with the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153, Light Kit # 20174, and Oval Mounting Bracket # 106873 and you are good to go. Should you not have the 4-Way connector I recommend installing the T-One # 118651 which tees in behind your tail lights and comes with a power wire that you run to your battery to power the lights.

  • Although we haven't performed an installation on a 1992 Road Trek Van, from what you are describing I believe that the Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75140 will fit. If you check out the attached photos you can see that it installs directly to the frame and the crosstube sits below the bumper itself. If this does fit then I recommend using the etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # E98874 because it has tilting and folding functions, has a weight rating of 500 lbs, and comes with...

  • Will Aftermarket Trailer Hitch Installation Void Warranty on 2020 Honda Odyssey
  • Absolutely not, you are protected under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which makes it illegal for companies to void your warranty or deny warranty coverage simply because you used an aftermarket product, unless they can prove the aftermarket product caused the problem. With that cleared up, the hitch I recommend for your 2020 Sorento is the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # e98855 because its installation is pretty simple and straight forward and does not require fascia trimming.

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan Juke
  • We do have trailer hitches and hitch mount cargo carriers that are compatible with your 2013 Nissan Juke. If you have the AWD model I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24867 but if you have the FWD model than I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24892. I like the Draw-Tite over the Curt for your application because Curt requires the stabilizer strap # 18050 be used with a cargo carrier. Although it doesn't hurt anything (and can be beneficial) it isn't required by Draw-Tite. Then for a cargo carrier...

  • Recommendation for Cargo Carrier for 2016 Chevy Equinox V6 with Dual Exhaust Heat Concerns
  • For your dual exhaust on your Equinox, there isn't a heat shield option, so I recommend using a cargo carrier that has a slight rise in the shank to give a little more distance. You normally won't have heat issues unless the cargo is extremely close, but it is wise to give as much room from the exhaust as possible. For example the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # E98874 has a 2 inch rise in the shank to give you a little more clearance from the ground as well as from your exhaust....
