Haven't used it yet. Looks like a clean/strong build. Glad I got the aluminum (not steel) version of one of these...much easier to carry around to store or attach to the truck. Good price, fast ship....no complaints! 821090

So far, so good. My grown daughter helped me put it together. She held the wrench and I used a drill to tighten all of the screws. It took us approximately 30 minutes. The directions are lacking. But overall it went together fairly easy. I drove about 10 miles with it today and didn't hear it rattle. I couldn't tell it was there. I purchased it to be able to haul a tub with trash inside it to the county trash receiving site. Very light to insert into the hitch receiver although a little difficult to reach over and put the hitch pin in. I'm very pleased thus far. 819813

It is a solid product. The assembly process is easy but long because of the many screws and nuts. A cordless screwdriver helps. The instructions aren't very good but you can tell by the picture how it goes together. It was a good value. 793661

So far, so good with this cargo carrier. We have yet to put it to the real test of carrying our trash hauls (the reason why we bought it) but are happy with the overall feel of it after having assembled everything. Aside from a couple of small dents made in the aluminum due to the heavier steel underbar sliding into the frame during transit, everything arrived intact. We even had an extra screw in the end. All put together, it feels very solid and seems like it should hold up to the tasks we have in mind. 777879

Great product. I was skeptical at first as it’s a new product, but it’s sturdy and lightweight. Putting it together was a challenge as there are many small screws and nuts but once it’s together it works great. Easy to lift up to hitch and put in place. The aluminum frame won’t rust like steel and cheaper than other options. 772801

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier

  • Trailer Hitch and Lightweight Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2020 Toyota Highlander LE
    The best combination for you to carry a lightweight cargo carrier behind your 2020 Toyota Highlander is the Curt Trailer Hitch # C99FR and the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98991. Both of these have a 500 lb tongue weight rating which look to match up with the max rating of your vehicle - you will want to double check this in your owner's manual though just to be on the safe side. The Curt hitch features a hidden crosstube so all you're going to see is the receiver. This means you're...

  • Is the eTrailer Aluminum Cargo Carrier RV Approved?
    Our carrier is rated for highway speeds so you won't have any issues there. We do not recommend using our Aluminum Cargo Carrier # e98991 on the back of an RV. If you want to have a cargo carrier for your Forest River Sunseeker Motorhome, we make one specifically for RV Bumpers. 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper Part # e99049. This one is rated for highway speeds as well but is RV approved.

  • Does the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches Have A Warranty

  • Will the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier Work On the Back of a Trailer
    The 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier part # e98991 has a fixed shank which means unlike pivoting/folding shanks, there are very few weak points meaning. Therefore, it will hold up extremely well on the back of a trailer which has a much rougher ride than that on a vehicle.

  • Can etrailer Cargo Carrier be Extended 14 Inch for use on Van With Spare Tire
    You can absolutely extend the etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98991 out 14 inches to use it on your camper van with a spare tire mounted on the back; all you need is a 14" hitch extender and you'd be set. For that I recommend the Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 14" Long # C45795. If you meant that it was a total of 14" from the hitch pin hole to clear the spare tire, since the cargo carrier measures 8-1/2" from the hitch pin to the closest part of the carrier...

  • Lightweight Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2019 Tesla Model X
    The etrailer cargo carrier part # e98991 is a lighter weight carrier due to it being made mostly out of aluminum. For a lighter weight option for your 2019 Tesla Model X with a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76143 installed this would be a really great option. It weight just under 30 lbs. For a hitch lock that doubles as an anti-rattle device the part # 63232 would be a great option as well. This holds the shank of the carrier to the hitch tube so that movement and noise is removed....

  • Best Cargo Carrier For Use In Salt Water Environment To Avoid Rusting
    I can understand your concern with rust in a salt water environment. I recommend the etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Aluminum part # e98991 which is an aluminum cargo carrier that measures 58-3/16" long x 20-1/2" wide x 6" deep of usable space. Since it is aluminum is also only weighs 18 lbs so it easier to take in and out the hitch. I do recommend to spray the cargo carrier and hitch down with fresh water periodically to further extend the life of the hitch and cargo carrier. I...

  • Locking Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2018 Kia Sportage
    As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2018 Kia Sportage like the Draw Tite part # 76074 the etrailer cargo carrier part # e98991 would fit and work well. To lock the carrier to the hitch you'd want the # 63232 which also acts as an anti-rattle device. With an open carrier like this it's harder to lock items to it, you'd want an enclosed carrier like the Thule Transporter part # TH665C if you were really wanting to keep your cargo locked up. To lock this to your vehicle...

  • Are Corners of 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier Plastic
    Yes the rounded red corners of the etrailer cargo carrier part # e98991 are plastic. If you were to accidentally hit something with the corner of the carrier it would be less likely to scratch because it's plastic.

  • Lightweight Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2020 Volvo XC90
    Thank you for all of the information! I think that you are correct about the center of gravity because I haven't seen that kind of wording or formula used. It might be good to reach back out to your Volvo dealer just to make sure you use everything appropriately for your 2020 Volvo XC90. Between the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98991 and the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 I recommend the etrailer carrier because it weighs in at 18 lbs (the MaxxTow is 29 lbs) and has more room...

  • Anti-Rattle Bolt for etrailer Cargo Carrier e98991
    You can get an anti-rattle bolt for the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98991, but it does not come with one, it just comes with a pin and clip. So for an anti-rattle bolt with this carrier the correct part is the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # 63232. This gives you two benefits in one; it stops the rattle of the carrier and locks it to your hitch, so this part gives you a quieter ride while also protecting the investment you made in the carrier....

  • Is Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity the Capacity for Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for 2016 Honda Odyssey
    Your thinking is spot-on so I would not say you are overthinking at all. The tongue weight capacity of a hitch is the vertical load capacity that is associated with a trailer's tongue or a cargo carrier like the # e98991 that you referenced. So with a hitch that has a 350 lb tongue weight capacity you'd be able to carry a total of 350 lbs at the hitch between the weight of the carrier and cargo. So if the carrier weighs 30 lbs like this carrier you'd have 320 lbs of cargo weight you could...

  • Aluminum Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2015 Honda Pilot and Hitch Lock/Anti Rattle
    The etrailer cargo carrier part # e98991 is a great option for an aluminum cargo carrier that will fit the 2 inch hitch of your 2015 Honda Pilot. This has tray dimensions of 22 inch by 60 inches and has a 500 lb capacity. Then for a hitch lock that doubles as an anti-rattle device the part # 63232 would be a great option.

  • Best Trailer Hitch, Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag for 2018 Infiniti QX60
    We have all the best parts to add a hitch, cargo carrier and cargo bag to your 2018 Infiniti QX60, and let's start with the hitch. The best hitch for your 2018 Infiniti QX60 is the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76031 because it is has the most ground clearance and bumper clearance of any hitch for your car. This means your cargo carrier is going to be as high off the ground as it can be with this hitch over any other. I have added a photo and a link to a video install on an '18...

  • Can I Use A Hitch Extender With The Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 To Carry A 150lb Load?
    Yes, you can use the Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 with your 2020 Chevy Equinox with a hitch extender like the Brophy 7" Hitch Extender # HE06. Since you are only going to be carrying about 100-150lbs it will be fine, but keep in mind that when you use a hitch extender you limit the accessory to about 50% of its original weight capacity. I like using the aluminum carriers for situations like yours because you can just hose the carrier off when you unload the deer and you won't have...

  • Which Hitch Would Work For My 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon?
    We do have a Draw-Tite Hitch that fits your 2018 Subaru Outback but # 75082 isn't the right one. It fits previous generations of the Ford Ranger and Mazda trucks. The hitch you need is # 75673. I included an image to show you what it will look like along with an installation video on a Subaru Outback Wagon. So, check it out! If I may recommend some accessories that I personally use, I use the eTrailer Hitch Pin Alignment Collar # e98942 for all accessories exceeding 25lbs. I have them...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Large Cargo Carrier for a 2005 Lexus RX 330
    In order to use a cargo carrier on a 2005 Lexus RX 330 you'd need to start with a trailer hitch, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98857 is what I recommend. In comparison to the other options, this one has a matte finish which better blends in with the vehicle. The 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier part # e98991 would then work well for this setup. The inside dimensions are 58-3/16" long x 20-1/2" wide so that is what you'd need to use to determine fit of your storage containers.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Forest River Salem Cruise Lite Travel Trailer
    Since your 2020 Forest River Salem Cruise Lite Travel Trailer has a rear bumper you'll need to install a bumper mount hitch receiver instead of one that installs directly to the frame. This is simply because anything installed to the frame will sit too far under your trailer for you to utilize the receiver. For your application I recommend the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 which fits around a 4" x 4" square bumper and easily installs using the the included bolts and...

  • Does Tongue Weight for Hitch on 2014 Dodge Challenger Include Cargo Carrier
    The weight of the cargo carrier as well as the weight of the cargo is included in the tongue weight for a hitch on your 2014 Dodge Challenger. For example, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13236 has a 350 lb tongue weight, so you would add the weight of the cargo carrier plus the weight of the luggage on the carrier to get the tongue weight. To maximize the amount of gear you can carry I recommend a lightweight aluminum carrier, the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98991. This...

  • Can I Use The Swagman Straddler # S80503 With A Cargo Carrier?
    You could use a cargo carrier like our 24x60 Cargo Carrier # e98874 but I wouldn't recommend it because it weighs about 48 lbs and the capacity of the Swagman Straddler # S80503 is only 100 lbs. You wouldn't be able to load up much cargo before you went over the limit. It can be done but you cannot put more than 52 lbs of cargo on the basket. You can cut that down a little bit by getting an aluminum carrier like our 60x22 carrier # e98991. This carrier only weighs about 18 lbs which...
