Expanded Carrying Capacity for Your RV

etrailer cargo carrier

No matter how big your RV is you'll likely have gear you'd prefer not to store inside. This carrier lets you transport generators and fuel cans, so your storage compartments don't smell like gas. You can also strap coolers, luggage, and other bulky objects on it to free up space inside your RV. Lastly, it's great for carrying wet, dirty, or smelly items outside of the RV, keeping your interior clean and odor free. It has raised side rails that help prevent your gear from sliding off and provide multiple anchor points for a cargo net, bungee straps, or other tie-downs (sold separately).

Bumper Mount

etrailer cargo carrier

Most RVs don't have hitches installed, so if you want to use a cargo carrier, you'd have to install a hitch receiver. However, this cargo carrier mounts on your RV's bumper, so you don't need a hitch to carry your gear. It's also designed to provide better load distribution across your bumper than a hitch-mounted carrier.

Folding Design

etrailer cargo carrier

When the carrier is not being used, you can fold it up against the back of your RV. This is convenient if you need a little extra space at the campsite, if you're travelling but not carrying any gear at the time, or if you're parking close to a fence, a shed, or a garage. To fold the basket up, just remove the snapper pin from each arm assembly, fold the rack up toward your vehicle, then reinsert the pins through the holes in the top of the mounting brackets.

Easy Installation

etrailer cargo carrier

The carrier is easy to install. Just slide the mounting brackets over your RV's bumper, spacing them 17-5/8" apart (inside edge to inside edge), and secure them with the included M10 hex bolts. Attach the main arm assemblies to the mounting brackets with the included M16 hex bolts. Attach the basket to the main arm assemblies with the included M8 carriage bolts. The included support brackets mount to most RV frames to reinforce your bumper and prevent metal fatigue that can cause your bumper to detach.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (410 Customer Reviews)

Carry generators, coolers, and other bulky gear behind your RV with this bumper-mounted cargo carrier. You don't need a hitch to install it and you can fold up if you need a little extra space for parking.


This is a very well built rack. Assembly was easy and all the parts fit together correctly. It fit right on to the 4 inch bumper properly. We have used it twice so far and it is easy to put up into the storage position when not needed. I did add one of the tailgate strip LED lights to the rear of the rack to increase visibility when I have something larger on the rack that might hide my RV tail lights. Very satisfied with this rack.


Haven't got to put it on yet because I'm waiting on the bumper to get here but definitely a solid rack. I was a little disappointed (only reason it didn't get 5 stars) because the side peices are powder coated and the mid section was painted, Also one of the side came with some scratches on it like it was from a different kit. Mine will be used thoroughly so not a big deal I'll just add some paint to it. But for quality of build definitely 5 stars. Just gotta do a little better on quality checking before shipping.

I am sorry that cargo carrier arrived in this manner. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

The rack is of great quality and heavy. Welds look good and rack was in good shape cosmetically. Doesn’t flex at all like the single point hitch installed carriers. Also there is more ground clearance since the rack sits above the bumper. Make sure you have a beefy bumper that can handle the weight as the extended rack is probably close to 80lbs assembled. etrailer was phenomenal, as always. Ordered on the Tuesday before Xmas and received on Thursday. There isn’t a better online retailer. Only bummer is that sales tax is being collected for Texas now.

The rack has been invaluable over the past year. Great option for those, like me, that have no storage space in truck bed 5th wheel but need to haul firewood, coolers, bikes, etc. The only con identified after a year of use is the coating. The rack is painted, instead of powdercoated which has resulted in it easily scratching and fading. The scratches quickly rust if not hit with some spray paint occasionally.

Very well built cargo carrier and after 1yr of use I am impressed


I don't say I "love" any material object, but I can honestly say this carrier is right up there! Thanks for the great support!


Product is great! Installation was easy and I was missing a few parts but they were delivered before my trip. I added the tire carrier.


I bought this because I wanted a wide one that would go bumper to bumper. I’ve put firewood generator a tote for sewage hose and fittings on and it works great. I had to add tail lights because the things I was hauling blocked the camper lights. It is very heavy duty. No sagging or leaning like other haulers. Well worth the money.


Shipping was fast. Packaging could have been a little better some parts were loose and moving around. The instructions are minimal and does not explain where things go. I am very mechanically inclined so I figured it out. Install prob took 45 min to an hour. Gives me great storage on the back of my 5th wheel. Very pleased with the product.


I bought this for my 36' 5th wheel. I added 2 more receivers giving it a total of 3 receivers making it more stable. I'm very pleased with this cargo Carrier excellent quality.


lots of nuts, washer, bolts missing. box was damage . By your parts list by # #6 2, #7 2, #8 2, #9 3, #11 3, #12 9, #13 9, #14 3, #15 3, #16 3, please send thank you otherwise I like' what I see again thank you.

Thanks for letting us know. I will send this to our customer service team and they will be in touch to get you those missing pieces as quick as we can.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 08/23/2022


Out of caution I put two sets of support brackets on. Had modify very little to get to work with the ladder. The gad to add an under carriage spare tire holder. All good.


It’s design did not allow us to mount to the bumper as they suggested. With some bracket changes we were able to mount it. The quality of the rack is excellent.


The boxes were delivered in very bad shape. I couldn't put the center piece in because it was to bent to attach, I could only use the two outer pieces which are also bent. It doesn't line up correctly and is very uneven. There are a lot of scratches on it. I did get the two outer pieces to connect and I'm leaving for a trip on Friday so I suppose I'll just store the center piece until the sight of it irritates me enough to throw it away. I ordered it about a month and a half prior to receiving it and the customer service was great at keeping me updated about the shipment, but other than that, extremely disappointed.

I apologize for the condition of your product. Customer Service will be reaching out to you soon.

I would have given 5 stars if the instructions would have been alittle easier to understand. I ordered the extention kit. The first kit said to place brackets 37 inches apart and to add 24 inches if getting the extention. When we did this they were tofar apart. So we put the basket together and found the mounting holes had moved the mounting brackets closer. Just wish we did not have to take things apart after putting them together.


Better than I expected took some time to put it together


Hot dumpster fire the center of the rack is off 3/8 inch the center section is different color and all the hardware is grade 5 at best Luckily I have a bolt bin with 10.9 hardware overall poor quality construction

This sounds like a mistake. Customer service will reach out to you.

The self tapping bolts on the etrailer bumper support snapped at an instant, I had to get longer bolts and nuts to go through the square tube. Otherwise I got it mounted easily and will give it the road test with about 275 lbs in a couple of weeks. So in summation, the rack and etrailer bumper supports looks very sturdy and I think will be a good addition for cargo.


I just finished assembling it yesterday evening and will get it mounted to the trailer bumper today. one of the arms where the sides connect was slightly bent in shipping but was easily fixed with a long pipe, since I knew I could fix it i wasn't concerned.


Perfect for the rear bumper of our camp er.


This rack is sturdy and well built. Install required making the locking pin holes bigger to slide them in easier, and the bumper support brackets that hold bumper in place if welds break did not torque to the recommended torque. The first two spun so I just hand tightened the rest. Adding this did change the geometry of the trailer for me a ton. I started out with what I calculated 300-350lbs and the trailer away was so bad my truck kept hitting brakes giving me a driver tired message. (Ford superduty). After the first two hours of a 11 day road trip I took the generator off the back and swapped out a few other things to reduce weight. The next big town I bought a extra sway bar and this took all the crazy sway out. I did not reload the generator the whole trip, but will after I install the equalizer axle
Upgrade hoping I shouldn’t have an issue. My trailer is a 2020 heartland 300BH, I would recommend this to anyone but note to be safe I also recommend welding support brackets to hold bumper to frame of trailer to make stronger i case welds break and adding another sway bar for two total.


This is the largest factory made cargo carrier available for purchase. It is solid. I placed it on a fabricated 4” bumper (1/8” thick). My rig is a 2018 Thor Quantum KM24 class C. The cargo carrier has no play. Awesome cargo Carrier!!!!


Just want to say that the representative (Sharen) was exceptionally nice, helpful, and kept me informed all the way through the process. She also saved me almost $[XX] because the rack had some scratches on it. Only minor! Item arrived when stated in 3 days, Quality bumper rack and it appears that it will hold more than 500#s. I weigh 230 and I jumped up and down on it as high as I could with a 100# generator on it and it was solid. Excellent customer service. I will use the company again and recommend them. In this time of little or no customer service, they were the best I have had in quit a while. THANKS!

1 year and over 25,000 camping miles and the rack is still holding up great. It has been carrying 2 100lb. generators and two 6 gal. fuel cans with no problems.

This cargo carrier is very well made, I was impressed with the strength of the joints as well as the ease of assembly. I didn’t even have to look at the instructions, that’s how easy it was to install. I’m 170 and jumping up and down ( probably not recommended) on this carrier proved this is what I needed to carry our genny and large trunk for our trip to the Arctic circle.


The good: This product was well thought out and engineered. Solid connectivity with excellent quality metals assure concern-free use. The unit is so solid I question if its weight capacity could be more than 500lbs.
The bad: Set the unit up without bolting first. Depending on how the RV bumper was attached to it's frame you may need to move mounts and drill new holes. Also, there are only pictures for directions and these a small and not fully accurate.

Still very pleased with purchase after a year. Took many vacations loaded and unloaded folded up with no problems. Unit is not rusting anywhere. Still recommend this unit.
Eric - 01/24/2022


Overall I think this a good rack I wanted it for the weight capacity and the size. The mounting brackets and arms are good quality. The basket/rack is a little thinner material so during assembly it will bend if your using an electric impact. The instructions aren’t very detailed but if your pretty handy with tools and drawings it’s easily doable. Due to my rear ladder for roof access I won’t be able to fold the rack in the upright position, but for my needs this won’t affect me . We had no missing parts which is a huge plus! I intend to haul my generator and two totes and this rack will do the job.
