Off-Road Cargo rack

Don't struggle to find space for all your gear next time you go off-roading. This hitch-mounted cargo carrier lets you haul your gear on the back of your Jeep, ATV, or UTV, with or without a rear-mounted spare tire. The basket is also elevated 11" over the shank for improved ground clearance over steep and uneven terrain. It also has raised side rails to keep your gear in place and provide tie-down points and a stop collar that automatically aligns the pin holes on the carrier and your hitch for a quick installation every time you use it.


Angled Shank for Improved Ground Clearance

Cargo rack extended shank

The carrier's shank is angled 65-degrees to provide an 11" rise that improves ground clearance over steep and uneven terrain. It also elevates your cargo, making it easier to load and unload. This extra clearance makes it the perfect cargo carrier for ATVs, UTVs, Jeeps, and other vehicles with a rear-mounted spare tire.


Raised Side Rails

Off-Road Cargo rack

Raised rails around the front and sides of the carrier help keep your cargo in place. The rails also provide anchor points for a cargo net, ratchet straps, or other tie-downs (all sold separately). The back of the carrier is open to accommodate an ATV's rear rack or a UTV's bumper.


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

Off-Road Cargo rack

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

The cargo carrier was what I expected and will meet my needs. Assembly was relatively easy. The only difficulty was missing the four M10 locknuts needed to mount the left and right frames to the main arm. A trip to the hardware store solved this problem. Looking forward to using the carrier here soon. 727028

Very sturdy as well as being a great value, this is listed as an “off road” carrier. Yet, it is much more. I like the elevated position that gets the carrier as well as the loaded gear well above the vehicle exhaust. The rear cargo door can be fully opened and closed with the carrier installed. Once the carrier is loaded with gear though, one will not be able to open this door. The rear glass door, however, can be opened if needed. 646942

Bolts together easily. I think mine may have got bent in shipping. You can see that the left side is not level and sags just a bit. Overall I’m happy though! 641080

Carrier arrived quickly and was packaged very well. I will be using it to go overlanding and intend to carry fuel cans and recovery tracks. This design will work better than standard baskets as it provides the extra ground clearance and won't change the departure angle. I especially like the anti-rattle hitch bolt. 725532

Nice rack, easy to assemble and I really like the rise built into the design. 877195

This is a great Cargo Carrier option. I put it on my 2015 Subaru outback and it's the same level with the back of the car bed. The height makes it easier to load. 1 complaint - it needs to be shipped in a better box. The main hitch "pole" punched a hole in the side and I'm amazed I didn't lose parts. 1 suggestion - get out your socket wrenches to tighten the bolts - this will save you time. 863566

Great product, looks good and not too bulky. Brings it to the right height without blocking the door at least when it's empty 862076

This off road carrier is very easy to assemble. My main reason for purchase was/is to carry propane & gas needed for camp stove, lanterns and generator. Smart for my 1950 Ford F-1 pickup with custom camper shell because I have easy access: (a) to my truck bed and camper shell; and (b) to my spare tire - much more so than had I purchased a non-raised carrier. Plus I won't bottom out. My F-1 is now fully packed & rigged - not only for camping, but also in the event I need quick departure from the fire-prone forest where I live. 860781

Fast shipping. Good customer service, although i did not have to contact them, they kept me informed if my order status. Camping trip with 3 adults and now we won’t be as cramped!! Looks good on the Jeep. Perfect size. So many cargo racks are bigger than what I wanted. Will need hitch extension when spare tire is mounted. I like that the rack is lightweight - makes it easier to get on and off and store. 854321

Love it!! It fits my VW Tiguan like a charm. Plenty of ground clearance even when it's fully loaded and it seems to be very durable. The only thing it doesn't do is fold up when your not using it but that's okay in my book because you can still open the hatch. 853521

I love this rack for my camper van. Highly professional company to do business with. The product arrived promptly, well packaged and easy to put together and install on the van. I like the high clearance as it is above my lights and number plate. I also do not have to worry about the rack hitting the ground as I go over bumps. There is a long overhang from the rear wheels to the back of the van so this can be an issue. 831555

Just to start with, I have purchased from etrailer several times and have always had great luck with their products, super fast shipping, and great customer service. Now to this carrier. The price was great compared to other off road sites selling similar items. Saying that, I guess you get what you pay for. The quality of this carrier is lacking. The welds were the biggest problem. "Very Inconsistent". One side was welded pretty good, with "some" welds all the way around the square tubing. The three center bars on both sides did not have welds on the top. You can see the gap where they meet up with the side. This I feel will allow water to seep into the tubing and eventually rust it from the inside out. One side had welds on anywhere from one to two sides of the tubing. In one place it was just spot welded. This left at least half of the tubing on one side unwelded. I question the 500lb capacity with so many missing welds. I only plan on carrying a 40lb grill and a couple of other light items, so shouldn't be a problem, and I will fill the gaps with some liquid rubber. Now to the customer service. I tried contacting etrailer customer service twice by phone and have sent five emails in two days. I have yet to talk to a human and none of my emails have been answered, along with my leaving a call back number. I would probably buy again, based on the cost, shipping speed, and quality "potential", but only if quality is increased. 830176

This cargo rack is perfect for the back of my Kia Sorento. It is very sturdy. Not too big, just enough to carry some extra items that won't fit in the way back. The corners are rounded, which is nice in case you bash your leg into the rack while you are accessing the back of the vehicle. I really like how this rack is elevated. It makes it easier to load and unload, and it keeps my stuff a little more protected from road junk than the racks that are set lower to the ground. And I can still open the rear hatch. All in all, this is a great cargo rack. Highly recommend. 725163

I would give a 5+ if I could. The original carrier came with a defect. eTrailer cannibalized another carrier and sent me a new part no questions asked. Shipping outstanding, customer service second to none, products excellent. I am a repeat. repeat customer. 639097

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier

  • Best Cargo Carrier for Overlanding with 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL
    The 20x48 etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier # e98875 is an excellent choice for off-road and overlanding applications because it lifts your gear 11 inches from the ground, so you can feel confident going over steep and uneven terrain. If your stock spare tire sticks out less than 9 inches away from the center of the hitch pin hole, the shank on this cargo carrier will be long enough to clear it. Otherwise, you can pair it up with a hitch extender, like # RM-071-1075, which provides an extra...

  • How To Determine If the 20x48 etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier Will Clear The Hatch On a Vehicle
    I don't have the ability to determine compatibility of the 20x48 etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier part # e98875 with any one particular vehicle unless we have tested this our self but the shank is long enough that it will clear the hatch on most applications. If you wanted to be certain you could measure using the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the carrier to the closest part which is 9".

  • High Rise Cargo Carrier and Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Kia Telluride
    We have a cargo carrier that has quite a bit of rise built into it which I think would be your best option with the etrailer # e98875. This has 11 inches of rise built into the shank of it which is more than any other options. Using a rise adapter with a carrier isn't ideal as it adds quite a bit of movement and also cuts the hitch capacity by 50 percent. You'll need a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2020 Kia Telluride which for that I recommend the Curt Class III hitch part # C13420...

  • Will etrailer e98875 Off Road Cargo Carrier Block License Plate on 2020 Ford Escape
    The etrailer brand 20x48 cargo carrier, part # e98875 has an 11 inch rise, so to determine where the basket will sit in regard to the license plate on your Escape, if you measure upwards 11 inches from the inside top edge of your hitch receiver tube, it'll give you an exact location where the underside of the basket will sit. Add about 6 inches to that, and that's where the top of the rail that runs around the basket will sit. If something that doesn't sit up so tall might work better...

  • Will etrailer Off Road Carrier with Threaded Hitch Pin Work On Trailer Hitch With Smooth Hole
    The hitch pin hole on a trailer hitch is not threaded, they are all smooth. The hitch pin holes on hitch mounted accessories such as the etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier part # e98875 for example are often threaded for anti-rattle purposes. The threaded hitch pin is small enough to pass through the smooth hitch pin hole on the trailer and then gets threaded into the weld nut on the shank of the hitch mounted accessory. Therefore, you won't have any issues using the above cargo carrier on...

  • Does etrailer Cargo Carrier Require Use of Threaded Hitch Pin
    Yes, when using the etrailer cargo carrier part # e98875 you do have to use the threaded hitch pin. If you check out the picture I attached you can see that the shank is threaded and that a standard pin wouldn't work. The advantage to this is that it holds the carrier tight in the hitch tube which eliminates movement and noise. For off-road choices with the higher rise there really aren't any other great options. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Can etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier Fit Toyota 4Runner 2020 TRD Off-Road
    The 20x48 etrailer Off Road Cargo Carrier # e98875 would fit and work great on your 2020 Toyota 4Runner. If there wasn't tall cargo in the carrier the rear hatch would open pretty easily.

  • Will the Reese Cargo Carrier with Bag Installed Block/Interfere with Exhaust
    The 20x48 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # 6502 is an excellent option and it has a raised/extended shank to help keep your contents away from objects such as the exhaust so I do agree with your hypothesis. That said, this could vary so much from vehicle to vehicle it would be hard to give a definite yes/no answers. However, we do have the 20x48 etrailer.com Off Road Cargo Carrier part # e98875 which I can confirm you won't run into any exhaust issues with as it has a much taller...

  • Using Cargo Carrier While Towing A Trailer Behind It
    What you could do is use something like the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544 and then a carrier like our Off Road Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98875. This is a good one because its somewhat shorter than the MaxxTow # MT70100. Since you will be putting a ball mount # C45534 in the bottom hole of the dual purpose hitch adapter, you need to think about clearance when your taking tight turns. Having a shorter carrier will help your trailer not make contact with the carrier...
