Fast shipping, scratch and dent folding cargo carrier was received July 8, 2019. Overall I am very happy, right out of the box you could tell it is quality. It was literally ready to install out of the box. What I like about it is the overall size the ease of handling when it is in a folded position and it is fairly lightweight for a robust item. The only things that I was not thrilled with was the locking pin for the receiver it is a screw type to keep it from wobbling which is nice and makes sense but if you want to use your own clevis pin you cannot, it won’t fit because of the threads. At least mine would not you may have different results if you have a smaller diameter clevis pin. The only other thing which is not a complaint more of an observation is the sheet-metal is fairly thin probably to keep the weight down. Because of the thin sheet metal you have to be cautious on how you secure your loads. You definitely do not want to over crank or tighten your tie down straps. Overall I am thrilled with the value and the quality of the product. I would recommend this to anybody and I’ve already been stopped multiple times by people asking me how it works and where did I get it and i’ve inly had it two days. 668555

Still awesome! I bought the scratch and dent so I was fully aware of the paint issue the first batch has. The paint is thin and has rubbed off some and weathered with some rust but thats no big deal at all. I use this hitch all summer long for outer beach 4x4ing. It works amazing and I still get asked where I got it from. I have really come to love the folding up footprint for when I store it in my shed. It snugs away perfectly. I’m very pleased with my purchase and happy I pulled the trigger while the price was lower. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a large cargo carrier.

Easy to use, no assembly required. Folds down to be quite small... exactly what I'd hoped it would be. Also multiple configurations for use are a big plus. Many tie downs spots. 658892

We are very happy with our purchase from etrailer.com. We received our shipment ASAP and it was very easy to install on our Honda Pilot. They have great customer service! We would definitely buy from etrailer.com again and again! 638460

I’m very happy and impressed with the folding cargo trailer. I really needed something that could fold into a more compact and contained configuration for storage purposes. This item fits the bill. Also, the quality of the support bar upon which everything sits is very strong, durable, and easy to install. I’m a pretty handy 6’ tall guy (so adjust expectations accordingly) and I was able to install the cargo basket, stand on it to test its strength, pull the pins to mess around with the various configurations, and uninstall everything in 5-7minutes, without needing to look at any kind of directions. For my purposes, which is basically to gain storage space for traveling with three kids in the back seat of my Ford Escape, I honestly couldn’t have done better for the money—trust me, I researched my options for several months (baby #3 comes this month! God help me ;-) Sorry I don’t have a photo. I didn’t think to take a pic when it was installed. 727444

It's pretty neat. Not stupid heavy for one person to wield around folded up. There's no reason that I can think of to look at the directions, it's a straight forward deal. Should store nicely on a sturdy shelf. Put it on the truck out of the box in maybe 10 minutes. It has a threaded hitch pin which I thought was weird... but works fine. Had it on for about 2k miles and no problems. Perfect for my tool box from the truck and room behind the tool box for camp chairs. Four stars because I don't believe 5 star reviews. For 5 stars it outa make toast and give me compliments. 635216

I paired this product with another companies cargo box. I noticed that this product was discounted as scratch and dent when I bought it. The price and features combination were too good to pass up. I will be traveling with this setup for close to 3000 miles this July. I have a prototype setup I put together this afternoon to test around town over the next couple of days. A pipe wrench and my body weight fixed the dents. Scratches were minor. Very impressed so far! 657220

I have ordered several products from etrailer.com, and it is a first class company. The products are of high quality, the prices are good, and the video tutorials and support are fabulous. I bought this cargo carrier, and overall I'm satisfied. Here's the pros and cons as I see them: Pros: --High quality, durable construction --Folds nicely for convenient storage --Plenty of points for tie downs/ratchet straps/etc. Con: --Despite the description saying "flat", this cargo carrier does not fold 180 degrees flat like others I've seen. I contacted customer support to make sure this was intentional and not an error in workmanship, and they confirmed that it is not intended to lay completely flat. I could see this being a problem when attempting to haul something wide, but in my application I made it work. Note that the pictures on the listing are accurate, so look closely to make sure that it's for you. 831249



- e98872
by:

My initial impressions are the carrier is made well and the fit and finish are very good. There are thumb clips that lock the carrier into position when it is being used. When the carrier is folded up it is reasonably easy to move for it s weight. The only reason I did not give the carrier more stars is because when the carrier is open the floor of the carrier is not flat. Both ends of the carrier are at least 3 inches above the center line. If you have a rigid flat item that needs to sit flat across the whole length of the bottom of the carrier this is not the carrier for you. 828106



- e98872
by:

The folding cargo carrier is Heavy duty and well built. Folds up to get it out of way when not in use and folds for storage. However at 60+ pounds it was much to heavy and awkward for me. I replaced it in only a few months with one less than half its weight (28 lbs.) much easier for me to use and serves me well. Great product if you can handle the weight. 816846



- e98872
by:

It is a bit heavy and flimsier than I would like but you CANNOT beat it's versatility. I wish they had add tightening bolts and pull pins to both the front and back. I have had it for a year, and it is showing some rust where the paint has chipped off. I have not used it very much since I bought a trailer shortly after. 800779

Bought a hitch and carrier for our new Honda. Had the neck on the carrier raised because it hit the ground when on the road. No big deal but the item is great, fold it up and fits in the back when going on a trip and unload bags. 792078

by:

Very good design, works well with my Jeep adding a 12 inch exstension to clear the tire on the rear. Not as light as described but then again I'm getting a little long in the tooth and not as bull strong as I once was. Lol The only minor thing is that the finish could be better, it's very thin. But I'm still giving this a 5 star as it's a great product with enough tie down spots to accommodate any cargo and configuration. Awesome product! 789676

The product is a solid piece and easy to use. It did the job I needed by adding extra storage to my truck. Would recommend it. 785622

I have used this carrier a dozen times over the past year and it has been very handy! Pros: 1 Sturdy in working (tray-down) position. 2 Plenty of tie-down points 3 Wings can be folded to match load size. Cons: 1 Center Wing locks are tricky to adjust (important when traveling empty in "tray-up" position). 2 Blocks direct view of license plate in "tray- up" position. 3 Empty "tray-down" not visible to tailgating vehicles. 770884

This product worked great, took it on our family summer vacation almost 6000 miles. Loved the folding feature. Easy to remove and put away when needed after getting to camp sites and going into town. This would be a 5 starts, the only downside is I still cannot get a locking pin for this. Had this for over a year (currently its 2/2020)and was told one was in the works but still no locking pin. -definately recommend this carrier easy to put bungie tie downs everywhere, easy to put away. Needs a locking pin! 760610

  • Will etrailer 24x62 Folding Cargo Carrier Fit Inside RV Storage Compartment
    When the etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98872 is completely folded up for storage, it gets down to a pretty compact size of 32-1/4 inches long x 11-1/4 inches wide x 21-1/4 inches tall, so if the space inside your RV's storage compartment is at least that big, you're good to go. Since the size of RV storage compartments can vary, you'll just need to take a quick measurement to ensure there is enough space to store the carrier inside. If you find that your compartment is too small, you can...
