Expert Answers about RV Cargo Carrier


  • Do Cargo Carriers Have to be Rated for Use on the Back of an RV
  • Although a bike rack must be rated for use on the back of an RV, a cargo carrier does not. The 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18152 will work for you. This carrier has less moving parts than folding versions which is ideal for use on the back of an RV because bike racks and cargo carriers mounted on the back of an RV have much more movement and stress in comparison to bike racks and cargo carries attached to the rear of a passenger vehicle due to the distance from the carrier to the axle. The...

  • Spare Tire Carrier Capable Of Being Mounted To an RV Cargo Carrier
  • With most RV bumper mounted cargo carriers I find the Offset Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22120 as being a great option to hang the spare tire off the back of the carrier. This has an offset to raise the spare tire up and reduce the chances of it dragging on the ground on steep driveways. You will likely need shorter mounting bolts as the ones included are designed to fit a frame up to 3" wide.

  • Will The etrailer Cargo Carrier For RV Bumpers Fit A 2-1/2" RV Bumper
  • No, the 24x84 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e96ZR requires a 4" x 4" or 4-1/2" wide x 4" high bumper for installation. The alternative to this would be to use a hitch mounted cargo carrier like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98874. If you don't have a 2" hitch on your RV then you can install an adjustable fit hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # C13704. This hitch fits a frame width of 22" to 66" Wide. To know what your frame width is you'll...

  • Is 24x40 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper Long Enough to Carry 2 Adult Bikes
  • Adult bicycles can vary in size, but generally speaking, the 40 inch inside width of the 24x40 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99050 won't be wide enough to carry a pair of bikes, so you'd need the 24" Extension for etrailer Bumper Mounted RV Cargo Carrier # e99052. That said, with the open floor design of Cargo Carrier # e99050 it will be difficult to get bikes to properly mount in the carrier, so if your only goal is to use this to carry bikes, a better option would be a bumper-mounted...

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Work on Trailer With 4 Inch Bumper
  • The Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier # CC-100 can absolutely be used with a Curt bumper mounted hitch on your 2017 Keystone Cougar 26RLS to carry a max of 200 lbs of cargo. Since you mentioned you have a 4 inch metal bumper the correct hitch is likely the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch # E-100 which is a fit for a 4" x 4" square bumper; the Curt RV Bumper Hitch # C19101 is the other bumper mounted hitch for RVs and is for use with 2" x 4" RV bumpers so you will want to use the one that...

  • Can Spare Tire Fit Under etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper
  • There isn't a way to mount a spare tire directly under the 24x84 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e96ZR. What you can do if you have enough space on the bumper is add a bumper-mounted spare tire carrier next to the cargo carrier with the Brophy Rigid Mount Spare Tire Carrier # BR56VR or Folding, Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-2. If you don't have quite enough room with the 84 inch wide cargo carrier, there is a smaller carrier as well, the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper...

  • Space Needed To Fold The etrailer Cargo Carrier Up When Not In Use
  • The 24x84 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e96ZR is going to fold up and sit on top of the mounting brackets, so anything that would sit above the bumper of your 2022 Jayco Redhawk Class C Motorhome is going to interfere with the cargo carrier's ability to fold up. The cargo carrier is going to require 4" of space, which is most likely the size of your bumper so as long as the ladder sits behind the bumper you'll have no issues.

  • Will etrailer Cargo Carrier # e99049 Work with Grand Design 2800 BH?
  • The 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99049 is a great option for a cargo carrier for use with an RV. It fits 4" x 4" and 4-1/2" x 4" RV bumpers and can hold up to 500 lbs. As long as the bumper on your Grand Design 2800 BH matches those specs, this cargo carrier will work well. Note that your manufacturer may have a weight rating for your bumper that is less than this, so whichever weight rating is lower is the limiting factor.

  • Will A Bumper Mounted RV Cargo Carrier Attach To A Trailer Hitch On A 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The 24x84 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e96ZR is designed for 4" x 4" bumper tubes so this particular cargo carrier wouldn't be a compatible fit to attach to your trailer hitch crosstube. Instead I recommend a hitch mounted cargo carrier option like the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # 63153. Hitch mounted carriers will slide right into the receiver tube of your trailer hitch and secure with a hitch pin for a fast and convenient carrier option.

  • Determining Fit of Folding etrailer Cargo Carrier for RVs

  • Correct Mount-n-Lock SafetyStruts for 2022 Grand Design Transcend Xplor 321BH
  • The answer to your question will depend on your bumper. More than likely the # MO22FR will be the correct part for your Grand Design Transcend Xplor 321BH. If you have a tube frame with a bumper that is 4" - 4-1/2" wide then this will work as extra support for your carrier and generator. You can see this in the attached review video at the 2 minute mark. If you have an I-beam, S-beam, or single channel frame you want the universal # MO34VR instead. If you don't have a carrier already Mount-n-Lock...

  • Hitch Adapters & RV-Rated Bike and Cargo Carriers
  • Any cargo carrier or bike rack that will be used on the rear of a RV (trailer or motorhome) needs to be rated for that application since the stress forces found at the rear of a trailer or MH are much greater than at the back of a standard passenger car. A standard bike rack made for use on a car cannot be used on the back of a Class C motorhome; you need an RV-rated rack like your Swagman Trailhead # S63381. The same applies to a hitch cargo carrier like your Curt # C18152. Although we...

  • Will the etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper Work Without a Bumper or What Options Are There
  • I have an alternate option for you, but the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99049 is designed to be used with RV bumpers, since you do not have a bumper this will not work for your E-Pro by Forest River. Instead, you would want to look at a hitch mounted cargo carrier like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98874. If your RV does not have a hitch, I have provided a couple options below depending on your frame width. If your trailer frame is 18"-51" Wide -...

  • Since you have a recessed bumper on your Keystone Outback, instead of using the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99049 I recommend going with the: -24x40 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper # e99050.

  • Installation Tips For An RV Ladder On A 2016 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf Travel Trailer
  • Typically the only modifications we see for RV Ladders like the # SP501L is RV'ers cutting them down in size to fit their RV. For people who have fold up cargo carriers or spare tire carriers in the way they'll usually just cut the ladder down to fit just above where the carrier sits.

  • Can Thule Transporter Tilting Cargo Carrier # TH665C Be Used on the Back of RV
  • The Thule Transporter Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier # TH665C tilts back about 5-inches from its normal transport position as shown in the linked diagram. However, this hitch-mount carrier is intended for use only on the back of automobiles, not on RVs. If mounted on the back of an RV it would be subjected to forces that could damage it. The longer the distance from the rear axle to the back of the RV the more stresses will be placed on any hitch-mount item. While we do offer specialty bike...
