Expert Answers about Hitch Cargo Carrier


  • Which Enclosed Hitch Cargo Carrier is Most Secure from Theft
  • Between the three you mentioned we can eliminate the Rola cargo carrier part # 59109 right off the bat as it has by far the weakest lock system. The locks are similar to what you'd see on a briefcase and the lid is position in such a way that it would be the easiest to pry off. The winner in my opinion is the GearDeck 17 Enclosed Cargo Carrier # H00604 when used with a padlock part # ACC3250 because not only is the pad lock more secure than the Thule Combi # TH665C lock the way the carrier...

  • Solution to Carry Cargo Carrier While Towing Trailer
  • We have a similar solution that would work well, but it's not exactly what you mentioned. What you'd want is the part # D210 which gives you a ball mount that has a hitch opening above it so that you can mount a cargo carrier like the Curt # C18153 in the opening and then tow a trailer with the ball mount below. Other option is the Cargo Carrier Bunk for A-Frame Trailers # CC-255 which attaches to the a-frame of a trailer and gives a platform that you could put cargo on. I attached a...

  • Capacity Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # MT70101 Explained
  • The capacities of the Detail K2 Carrier part # K2TMC201 vary depending on the tongue weight capacity of the hitch it is installed in. They rate it like this to help you prevent overloading the hitch. Also you have to keep in mind that a lower rated hitch is going to allow a bit more flex which would possibly put more strain on the rack as well. I attached a chart that shows how the numbers relate to each other. What you need to do is find out the tongue weight capacity of your hitch...

  • Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Combination Recommendation for Hitch
  • I have the perfect solution for you. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform 2 Bike Rack w/Cargo Carrier # HR1450Z-85 is a 2 bike platform rack with a cargo carrier that attaches to the rear of it. I attached a picture of what it looks like as well as a review video for you to check out as well. If you need a USA made trailer hitch for your 2018 Dodge Durango too we have the Curt # C13182 which is a confirmed fit and would work well with the rack mentioned.

  • Load Limits on the Let's Go Aero Twin Tube Base System
  • The Let's Go Aero TwinTube Cargo Carrier, part # HMK901 is rated to carry up to 300 pounds in any position. This is true of all of the products that use the TwinTube system as their base. This rating is to provide for appropriate support from the minimum Class III hitch that the carrier will be loaded in. The TwinTube extends 18 inches, giving it a maximum distance of 55-3/4 inches when extended, and 37-3/4 inches when closed. The Boss Hog Cargo Carrier, part # H01472 has a...

  • Enclosed Cargo Carrier for a 2018 Audi Q7 with 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • We have numerous enclosed hitch mounted cargo carriers so the only question is how big do you need? Rola carrier # 59109 is a great option because it is both an enclosed carrier and a flat carrier. The enclosed part can come off if needed! Also this version swings off to the side to allow you access to the rear of your 2018 Audi Q7. There will need to be less than 8-1/8 inches from the center of your hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the Q7 bumper for this carrier to clear the back...

  • Hitch Lock and Stabilizing Straps for Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153
  • There is a security hitch pin for you to use with Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 the # 853-5210-02 you referenced is for Thule bike carriers and load bars. Instead you could secure the cargo carrier to your hitch with the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232. The carrier will not break but for peace of mind I do recommend using Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050. This will give your carrier the extra support you're looking for; I've linked a video which shows exactly how...

  • There is a solution that will allow you to carry both a bike rack and cargo cargo on the rear of your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 at the same time and for this you will need to use the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier part # HR1450Z-85 which is the only one of it's kind to my knowledge. The Sport Rider is one of my favorite bike racks because it is very well made and has add-ons you can purchase to make it compatible with practically any bike. It...

  • Cargo Carrier Options for Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Keep Rear of Vehicle Accessible
  • I understand your cargo carrying requirements and I can relate to the dog-friendliness requirement too. I have a suggestion that will let you approach this need from a literally different angle: a front-mount hitch. Draw-Tite front-mount hitch # 65079 will fit your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited if it has the standard factory front bumper. This 2-inch hitch installs without drilling using included hardware and just a bit of fascia trimming will be needed. The advantages of a front...

  • Can Cargo Carrier be Used Behind an RV
  • There is a cargo carrier you can use on an RV but it is recommended it be one with a completely solid shank as opposed to one which folds and tilts; the reason for that is the amount of movement at the rear of an RV will be much greater than the back of a passenger vehicle and a solid shank will give your carrier the added stability to handle that much movement. The cargo carrier I recommend is the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18152 because like the etrailer.com Cargo Carrier it measures 60"...

Instead, I recommend the similarly sized 32 x 72 Let'sGoAero Gear Cage FP6, part # H01397 and the 30 x 50 MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier, part # MT70106.

  • Folding or Fixed Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2018 GMC Yukon
  • With the Curt cargo carrier part # C18153 the Curt Cargo Bag part # C18211 would fit perfectly. This bag has diemensions that are 56 inches long by 22 inches wide and the internal dimensions of the carrier are 60-1/8 inches by 23-3/4 inches. The Reese cargo carrier part # 63153 that you referenced basically has the same dimensions as the Curt so the cargo bag # C18211 would be a great option. The advantage of a folding carrier is that you get additional clearance behind it when not...

  • Where to Mount Wiring on Trailer Hitch for 2018 Subaru Outback
  • There is a way for you to mount trailer wiring if you were using a brake controller on your 2018 Subaru Outback if you are installing a trailer hitch with a hidden cross tube such as the Draw-Tite # 76227 or EcoHitch # 306-X7266. The 4-way harness you use, such as the T-One # 118467 that fits your '18 Outback, is going to have to come out of your hatch but you could then attach it to the safety chain rings (see accompanying photos) with Mounting Bracket # 118149. This bracket uses zip...

  • Parts Needed to Add Light Kit to Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153
  • What I recommend for Curt cargo carrier # C18153 is light kit # 20174. To mount the lights you will also need 2 of bracket # BK70BB. You can use self-tapping screws to secure the brackets to the top, rear rail of the carrier. This set up is the most cost effective option. It would plug into a 4-way trailer wiring connector. Which if you didn't have that on your 2014 Hyundai Tucson you'd need the part # 118501 as well. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Cargo Weight Capacity of Hitch Carrier Used on Honda CR-V
  • It sounds like you have a lot of cargo to transport in and on your Honda CR-V. Hitch carriers like the 20x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier # MT70108 are a great way to move heavy cargo items that might be too difficult to get up on your roof. Most vehicle roofs are limited to a weight rating of 165-lbs or less and this is only a fraction of the weight that can be carried on a hitch carrier. But these hitch carriers are not intended to hold a large rooftop cargo box. The issue is that such a...

  • Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack Combined on a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Class B Motorhome
  • I have a solution for you, however, neither the Maxx-Tow 20x47, part # MT70108 or the Curt 19x60 carrier, part # C18100 can have bike rack extensions added to them. Instead, I recommend Hollywood Rack's Sport Rider SE2 with Cargo Carrier, part # HR1450Z-85. This is a Class III rack that is rated for large van and RV use. It can carry two 50 pound bikes and up to 100 pounds of cargo in the carrier, and the carrier and rack can be used independently of each other on other vehicles.

  • The Lets Go Aero GearCage FP6 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier # H01397 measures 72 x 32-inches inside the top rails. The actual bottom/floor platform itself is smaller than these inside-the-rails dimensions. The floor platform actually measures 27 x 72-inches, which is narrower than the rail spacing by a total of 5-inches. This means that both in front of and behind the floor panel there are 2-1/2-inches of space with no floor under it. It is possible that the trike's two rear wheels would...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag Recommendation for 2018 Toyota 4Runner
  • Roof racks and roof cargo boxes/baskets can be expensive pretty quick and since your 4Runner has a factory hitch I'd recommend going with a hitch cargo carrier. Loading and unloading things at the rear of a vehicle hitch is much easier than the roof of a taller vehicle too. The tilting Curt cargo carrier part # C18153 that you referenced would be a fantastic option that would work well. For a cargo bag to attach to this carrier the Curt Cargo Bag part # C18211 would be a great option...

Both trailer hitches available for your Elantra, the Draw-Tite # 24964 and the Curt # C11424, are Class I models with a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. Between the two options I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 24964 because of its hidden crosstube design where only the receiver is visible behind the vehicle (see attached image).

The only other option that you may be interested in is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 # B01458 and the AerPack Cargo Bag # B01212.

  • Comparing a Folding Carrier and a Fixed Carrier for Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Toyota Highlander
  • The advantage of a folding carrier like part # 52018F is, obviously, that it it can fold up for rear clearance when you don't have anything loaded on it. The disadvantage of a folding carrier is that since there are more hinges and connection points they can tend to have more movement. Fixed carriers like part # C18153 that you referenced cannot, as their name suggests, fold up for storage or rear clearance, but since the shank is one solid piece they tend to have less movement. Both...

  • Using a 6 Inch Hitch Riser with Curt Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • You could use a high/low adapter # RM-048-6. But keep in mind that the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. So in other words the combined weight of the cargo carrier and its contents cannot exceed the reduced tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch.

  • Folding Cargo Rack That Clears the Spare Tire on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • What determines if a cargo carrier will fold is the distance from the center hitch pin hole to the nearest point on the carrier when the rack is folded up compared to the distance from the center hitch pin hole to the furthest point of the spare tire. This distance depends on the size of the shank that is inserted into the receiver for each product. We determine this distance on most of the products we sell and it is listed in the "Product Specifications" section of the item's detailed...

  • Lightweight Ramps for Help with Loading Animals Into an SUV

We do have a lighter option available in the Aluminum 27x47 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70275 but this option will also be less cost effective. Unfortunately, all of the cargo carriers we offer with a built-in ramp are going to well exceed the 40 lb limit you referred to. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the Erickson Arched Loading Ramp Set part # EM07435. These ramps are...

  • Will The 24x60 Cargo Carrier E98874 Block the Tail Lights on a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier part # E98874 is not too wide for your 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe. However, I believe what you may be concerned with is the cargo carrier blocking the tail lights while folded up. If that is the case then what you will want to do is measure outward 30" from the center of the trailer hitch. That will give you a good idea of where the edge of the basket will sit that way you can see if your tail light will be visible. The other option you have is to install...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Mazda CX-5 for Carrying Motorcycle Carrier
  • Yes, you can carry the Maxxtow Motorcycle Carrier part # MT70101 with your 2019 Mazda CX-5 but the hitch you'll want is the Draw Tite part # 76138 because it has a higher tongue weight capacity and does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a motorcycle carrier like the Curt hitch does. This hitch has a 675 lb tongue weight capacity and the carrier has a capacity of 400 lbs which would be more than enough for a 250 lbs motorcycle.

  • How to Reduce Wobble when Using Curt Cargo Carrier C18145 in a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • Hitch accessories tend to wobble, especially those that use a 1-1/4 inch to 2 inch adapter. The threaded hitch pin can only do so much to combat the movement. The issue is that the shank of the accessory has to be slightly smaller than the opening otherwise it would be difficult to insert and remove the accessory. That combined with the single attachment point and width of a cargo carrier means that even the smallest gap between shank and receiver seems huge at either end of the carrier. What...

  • Class I Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2018 Toyota Prius Prime to Avoid Need for Using Hitch Adapter

This loss comes from the actual load being moved further away from the hitch tube, which increase leverage on the hitch.

  • Hitch Scooter Carrier for 2018 Honda PCX 150 Scooter for Use on Class B Motorhome
  • Any accessory that is to be mounted on the back of an RV - either a motorhome like your Class B or on a trailer or camper - has to be made and rated specifically for that type of use. The reason is that the greater distance between the axle and hitch on such vehicles means more leverage (and more stress) will be applied to that accessory item. On passenger cars the axle-to-hitch distance is much shorter, just a few feet, and this of course puts less stress on the items. You also want...

  • Which is Better for Transporting Cargo Hitch Cargo Carrier or Roof Cargo Bag
  • The biggest pro for a roof cargo bag is that the price is a bit lower due to the fact you only need to buy the bag. With a hitch cargo carrier you have to buy and install the hitch, buy a cargo carrier, and buy a bag. Aside from that the hitch option is easier to install as you aren't reaching on the roof of the vehicle. The cargo is more out of the wind/weather etc so it will be better protected and is typically better secured since hitches mount directly to the vehicle frame. Since...

You could use a part like the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver, part # RM-077-8, which offers an 8 inch rise and would give you two 2 inch receiver hitches to work with. The top one would absolutely have to be the bike rack, while the bottom would be your cargo carrier's shank. You would then use an extender in the bottom port to clear...
