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.


Automatic Hitch Pin Hole Alignment

Alignment Collar

The stop collar automatically aligns the pin holes on the shank and your hitch every time you install the carrier. It prevents you from having to get on your hands and knees to check for pinhole alignment. It's quick and easy to install, just slide the collar onto the shank, insert the carrier into your hitch, align the pin holes, slide the collar up against your hitch, and tighten down the bolt with included hand knobs. Once it's set up you never have to adjust it again.


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.

This will work on a Jeep Library if you add a hitch extension. I welded an 7” extension to the receiver opening. (No rattling) If you weld it, make sure it’s level or the carrier won’t be. With the spare on the back of my Jeep the carrier wouldn’t fold up. Does now with room to go. I have a Motorhome and this is my tow vehicle. Carrier is used mainly for bikes. I was tired of booking up my small boat trailer with spare in the way. Now ball is accessible. This is a well built carrier. Doesn’t move or rattle at all. Thanks etrailer.


Comments
As you can see, my previous review it it it is primarily used for bicycles on trips on my tow vehicle. Hav used it only once in that capacity since I got it because of this Covid lockdown. Worked very good. Used occasionally on the Liberty for carrying large bags of pet food, topsoil,etc. when I’m not using a pickup. No complaints about this carrier.

Works as advertised. Easy to assemble. I did replace the tilt pin with a locking hitch pin to make it more difficult to steal. Also added reflective tape.

Product iss great! Used this carrier in combination with the etrailer cargo bag (Item #988501) on our 13 hour trip from IL to beaches of SC and never heard or felt it. I didn't realize that this carrier hitch has a threaded hitch pin for anti-rattle, so I didn't have to use my standard hitch anti-rattle device. The assembly and installation were pretty easy and the included hitch collar made subsequent attachments to my hitch a breeze. While the included wrenches we ok, I would recommend using a socket wrench as it is much more suited for the job. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that my 2014 GMC Acadia hatch had just enough clearance to open without using the tilt feature. BTW, the tilt feature on a loaded carrier definitely requires more than one person. Only con I can think of is that the pins for the folding feature do not slide in very easily, maybe because the holes don't line up perfectly. It definitely takes some twisting of the pins at the same time as fiddling withe the angle of the carrier to get the pin thru. It is do-able, but takes some "practice" for sure. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE NOTE: After our trip I was looking for a locking hitchpin (item #e99047) and noticed that the price of the carrier was about $30 less than when I originally purchased a month earlier. etrailer does have a competitor price match guarantee policy, but nothing specific to etrailer branded products. I asked them about this and they immediately refunded the price difference. Regardless of if the had done this, I still would have purchased the locking hitchpin, but this proves their excellence in customer service.

Top grades from your website to shipped to my home at No Ca in 3 days! Easy to assemble with the enclosed instructions and very helpful pics and videos on the website - every part is high quality - big plus that there is ample room to easily access my vehicle cargo area when carrier is attached. Excellent experience. Quality and functionality exceeds expections. Installed on 2021 Telluride

This carrier worked out great. The tilt down feature is helpful to have but I didn't really need it. However, the fold up feature was helpful when driving around, so I recommend that as a convenience. The only thing I had trouble with was the hitch bolt. I have a Thule bike rack that I've used with my truck hitch receiver and never had a problem, but this rack's hitch bolt was a real pain to get in at first. Don't be dismayed. With the rack off of the vehicle, I used some WD-40 and some lithium grease on the bolt and then used an adjustable wrench to screw it in and out a number of times. I noticed a bunch of either paint or metal shards gumming up the threads on the bolt each time I removed it. After about 5 times of screwing it in and out, wiping off the bolt with a towel, adding some more grease once in a while, it got to the point that I could screw it in and out by hand pretty easily. Problem solved. I'm really happy with this rack. It fit two big coolers of food and beer plus beach umbrellas and other stuff. It's really strong and sturdy. The biggest issue was not the weight on the rack, but whether the rear suspension on the Highlander could hold it with our other junk in the back plus passengers. :-)

Great luggage rack! 4,500 miles in 3 weeks on the first trip and it performed exactly as intended. It didn't sag or rattle. We used a Rola bag with ratchet straps for extra stability. We loaded luggage, too many other bags and fishing gear for a family of four. Better than buying a bigger vehicle. As the picture shows, it also makes a great tailgate/table for fishing or camping.

Solid carrier, definitely built to last. Assembly was more difficult than I expected, mainly due to the microscopic pictures on the one-page instruction sheet. It was difficult to tell exactly where each bolt should go and the correct direction, which is where a larger picture or zoom view would help. The exact hole for the M16 bolt is not clear, and I had to take this out and move it after trying to fold up the carrier. For parts, I only got 4 of the M8 washers instead of 8. Not a big deal, but I expected to have enough if not an extra. Another point of confusion for me was the inclusion of an M16 lock washer and an M16 flat washer. These were not listed on the parts nor the instructions, but I did use them anyway. A little more attention to detail on the parts and instructions will make this a 5-star product.

Excellent Product. Easy to assemble and very sturdy. Not to heavy and straight forward installation. Drove 600 miles to Florida for vacation and loaded a bunch of cargo on a Rola Bag. Everything arrived dry and clean. For the first time I could see through the rear window. No rattle, no noise and no issues. I own a Toyota Sequoia and the anti-rattle bolt is barely long enough to install the safety pin. I installed the bolt without the provided washer and it work without any issues. I did order the 2.5" bolt e98911 to resolve this issue. Love the folding feature. very glad I bought this version as I have not removed the rack during the whole vacation. Bought the Lights and Brackets also. If you do not have a 15/16 wrench or socket, I recommend you buy one...makes the install much faster than with the provided tool. The tool does the job in case you don't have a 15/16. Etrailer personnel were amazing.

I’m totally psyched this came earlier than expected. We are going on a trip next weekend with our Jeep Wrangler to Barnstable Beach out in Cape Cod. It took maybe half hour 45 minimum to put together and was very easy. After assembling of course I had to see how it fit and couldn’t be any happier it is perfect. I have an oversized tire and had concerns of it fitting past the spare tire but thankfully Etrailer has the measurements online and I took measurement prior to ordering. I just have one problem my spare tire is big so it doesn’t let the rack fold up enough to allow pin in to secure it in the upward position but I can easily modify and drill the hole a little bigger, I literally need 1/8 - 1/16 of an inch to get pin in. I guess I could try letting air out of spare tire that may work. I can’t wait to try it out it will definitely make a huge difference in packing up the Jeep. Thank you etrailer for the speedy delivery and and the great information about the product online. It’s great to have good info prior to purchasing.

After first unboxing and assembly, the cargo carrier is good quality and a heavy duty build. The packaging was sufficiently padded and the instructions were easy to follow but have small font. Unfortunately, the assembly wrenches provided were not easy to use and the hardware could have been coated with a superior exterior grade finish. And after putting it together, I leaned all of my weight on the cargo carrier and it easily held my weight of 240lbs, as expected. I have already purchased a light kit and license plate kit for my 4Runner because at first look it may be difficult to see the license plate with my full length cargo bag.

We really like the concept of this cargo Rack. It folds up to sit flat and it sits back far enough so we can get the doors of our Sprinter. The down side and the thing that has us most concerned is that it wont sit level when in the loading and travel position. In fact it seems to tilting back more and more with age. We do not over load it I am guess but I don’t think we ever put more that about 200 lbs on it. Also it seems to be rusting a bit from the inside but then we do live in the NW where is rains a lot. I have inclosed some pictures below

Verynice and works well. Check carefully on your clearance of spare tire. I put this back of Forest River Mini Lite and spare tire sticks out a little far. There is enough bend in the carrier to fold upend in fact the tire and cover bind this down tight will stay up without the pins. Nice to get generators off the ground and carry fuel and spare gear

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.

Great service from etrailer to switch out backordered unit so I could take this on my upcoming trip! It took about an hour to put together. Instructions were good, not great. Only complaint is the hole for the pin to secure the hitch to the truck receiver is too small for standard size pin. I have a standard size pin with a lock on it. Package included a small threaded pin with cotter pin to secure. I will use a cable and lock to secure carrier to the truck.


Comments
The hitch pin hole for this carrier is a little different so a standard locking hitch pin will not fit. To use a locking hitch pin we have the part e99047. This has the threads on the pin so that you dont lose the anti-rattle feature.

This is my first time owning a cargo carrier and so far it met my expectation. It’s well built and durable. It’s great that when you fold it up there’s still enough clearance for me to open the rear door of my CRV. My only concern is that if I have a full load and pass by a sudden inclined road, the carrier will hit the road, but I think its really on the low clearance of my CRV and not the cargo carrier, good thing it’s well built and sustained just minor scratches. Definitely recommend this!

LOVE this carrier! It is exactly what I was looking for and it was really easy to use. It does take some time to screw the anti-rattle hitch screw (it took me about 10 minutes using the wrench that came with the trailer). I think I will purchase a socket wrench attachment that will this size screw to make my life a little easier. I also especially like the weight of this carrier (some other ones are well over 50 pounds). I would highly recommend this item



- e98874

Product came ahead of schedule. Everything was included and worked as expected. The only problem was the stopping collar had a stripped bolt but this is more a convenience than functional. Replacement was sent immediately. I’ve used this several times already to transport my snowblower. It’s rock solid! One concern is the mounting bolt that takes a lot of effort to ratchet on every time. Time will tell if the threads hold up. Would have given Four stars because the broken part should have been caught before shipping but customer service was awesome! One suggestion. A quick video on assembly (not just mounting and operation) would help. The diagrams on instructions don’t show the placement of the washers that well.

Amazing shipping time. Good quality and fairly easy to assemble. Even sent the wrenches to put it together. Perfect for transporting those oversize items that don't fit into or are too dirty for the rear area of my 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. Plenty of clearance between the tail gate and the trailer. Didn't even have to tilt it down to get into the rear of my vehicle when the carrier was loaded. Hauled 60 nine foot long corn stalks several large pumpkins and several mums in my first use. it was excellent. Highly recommend especially at this price.



- e98874
by:

Robust construction and simple to assemble. I'm not in love with the tilting mechanism requiring two separate hitch pins, but it it seems to work just fine. It arrived in a very beat up box, but the contents were undamaged. One of the connecting rails was slightly bent (appeared to be a manufacturing error and not damage) and required a fair bit of force with a crowbar to bend back into alignment. Quality is perfectly acceptable for the price, just recognize that you shouldn't expect the fit and finish of higher end equipment like Thule.

  • Best RV Rated Cargo Carrier Option for Cooler, Generator and Bikes
    I do have a solution for you, but the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 is not designed to be used on the back of an RV. Generally speaking, folding carriers are not ideal because they do not stand up too well to the extra stress exerted by the excessive up and down movement that takes place behind the rear axle of an RV. Instead, take a look at the 23x60 Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier # CC-100. It's also rated for 500 lbs and it's basically the same size. The difference is that...

    From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # e98874 when it is folded down is 19-1/2" so I'm pretty confident this will work in that orientation. You can measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest edge of your spare and make sure that it's under 19-1/2" just to verify. When the carrier is folded up that reduces the clearance by 10" so from the center of the hitch pin hole to the carrier will be 9-1/2" and...

I went out and confirmed this myself using a thread pitch gauge. You could try re-threading the bolt, but since we do carry the bolt separately, it may be easier to just replace it. For that, you'll need part # e98911 or # e99047 for the locking version.

Instead the bike rack I recommend is the Hollywood Racks RV Rider part # HLY64FR which was specifically designed for carrying heavier e-bikes like yours that have fat tires, heavier weights, and alternative style frames. This rack is also one of very...

  • Cargo Carrier With Lots of Clearance to Help Clear Spare Tire
    It sounds like you are looking for the hitch mounted cargo carrier that has the a long distance from the hitch to the carrier so that you can clear the spare tire on your 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The carrier I recommend with a lot of clearance is the etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874, which is a full 19-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. What that means is if you measure from your Sprinter's hitch pin hole out to the edge of your spare...

  • Light Kit for Use with etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874
    We have the cargo carrier light kit part # 20174 which would work great with the # e98874 with the bracket kit part # BK70BB attached to the rails of the carrier. Or for an LED kit instead you could use the part # 59516 with the same bracket kit.

  • Best Cargo Carrier For Outdoor Activity
    The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151 is a little narrow in my opinion, you'll be able to get most if not all of the body of the deer in there but 20" wide seems to be a bit small. If it's a decent size buck or a large bodied doe I think a 24 x 60 cargo carrier will be your best bet and I always hope to shoot a monster so may as well get a large carrier just in case! I would hate to loose a good deer on the road and bruise up all the meat. Our eTrailer cargo carrier # e98874 is a better size...

  • Will etrailer Cargo Carrier Clear Spare Tire When Used on 2019 Keystone Cougar Travel Trailer
    Yes, the etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 will absolutely have enough clearance to use and clear the spare tire on your 2019 Keystone Cougar 34TSB Travel Trailer. Based on my research, this trailer has a hitch which is mounted and protrudes from its bumper; additionally, the trailer uses ST225/75R15 tires, so your spare will be just under 9 inches wide, which the carrier will easily clear. The SportRack Cargo Carrier measures 19-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of...

  • 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....

  • Will Cargo Carrier e98874 Fit a 2004 Isuzu Ascender XL and What Cargo Bag is Recommended
    The 20x60 Cargo Carrier, # e98874, will fit your 2004 Isuzu Ascender XL as long as it has a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver hitch. Also, make sure to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point at the rear of the vehicle. If it is less than 9-1/2 inches, this carrier will fit when folded up. For a cargo bag, I recommend the Rola Expandable Cargo Bag, # 59102. It is one of the larger bags that will fit this carrier and it is weather proof.

  • Longer Anti Rattle Bolt For etrailer Tilting Cargo Carrier
    This sometimes happens and the best solution is to get the locking anti rattle bolt # e99047. It is a lot longer and can be locked so it's an upgrade for sure. This will work with your tilting cargo carrier # e98874 and other etrailer products as well.

  • 2019 Subaru Outback Tongue Weight w/ 24x60 etrailer e98874 Cargo Carrier
    In the owner's manual after several readings, I found that Subaru mentions that the trailer's tongue weight should be between 8-11% of the trailer weight, not to exceed 200 lbs. Minus the packaging, the # e98874 etrailer 24x60 cargo carrier weighs just below 50 lbs, so this would leave you a bit more than 150 lbs of cargo capacity on the carrier without exceeding the tongue weight capacity mentioned by Subaru. I've linked you to a product description video featuring the carrier you'd...

  • Will Adding a Hitch Extender Reduce Tongue Weight Capacity for Using a Folding Cargo Carrier
    An extension will alter the tongue weight limit. It reduces the hitch tongue weight limit by 50 percent. With the hitches available for a Wrangler, you would either have a 150 or 200 pound tongue weight capacity with an extender, depending on hitch model.

  • etrailer.com Cargo Carrier Basket Light Kit Availability

  • Recommended Cargo Bag for etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874
    The etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 referenced in your question features insides dimensions of 59-3/4 inches long and 20 inches wide. The Curt Cargo Bag # C18211 that you also mentioned has overall dimensions of 56 inches long and 22 inches wide. Although the width of this bag is a bit larger than the usable width on the cargo carrier, this storage bag does have a soft/flexible bottom that will allow it to fit inside the carrier. This bag will work just fine with the etrailer Cargo Carrier....

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 1994 Dodge B250 Van
    Let's start with the hitch. For that the part # 41533 would be a fit and would be your best option. The cargo carrier part # e98874 is also going to be the best option for a carrier as well since it has such a large distance from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest rail of the carrier at 19-1/2 inches. It would need 9-1/2 inches to clear when folded up. That spare sticking out so far is going to prevent basically any carrier from folding up as the carriers do need quite...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier With Tool Box for Lockable Storage
    The 20x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98874 has the capacity to handle many tool box options. The internal dimensions are 59-3/4 by 20 inches, so a chest style utility chest will be best. I recommend the DeeZee Hardware Series Truck Bed Toolbox - Steel # DZ8546SB which is 60 lbs or the Aluminum # DZ8546B which is 52 lbs. If you want to go with a poly plastic option for weight and size preference, you can use the DeeZee Specialty Series Storage Box # DZ6535P. This is...
