Expert Answers about Hitch Cargo Carrier


  • Best RV Rated Cargo Carrier Option for Cooler, Generator and Bikes
  • I do have a solution for you, but the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 is not designed to be used on the back of an RV. Generally speaking, folding carriers are not ideal because they do not stand up too well to the extra stress exerted by the excessive up and down movement that takes place behind the rear axle of an RV. Instead, take a look at the 23x60 Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier # CC-100. It's also rated for 500 lbs and it's basically the same size. The difference is that...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Tow Extender Compatible with Tonneau Cover Height So Tailgate Remains Closed
  • I do have an option that will work with that application...it is the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 300 lbs # Y01149. I've attached a photo to assist. The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender - 2" Hitches - 350 lbs # MT70231 will not adjust to the height of the tonneau cover on your truck.

  • Can the Rear Hatch Door of a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited be Opened When Using Curt Cargo Carrier
  • The 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 will fit just fine on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but you won't be able to open your rear hatch door or utilize the folding feature due to your spare tire. I have attached a photo that a customer sent in when they wrote a review saying that they can't open their rear hatch door or use the folding feature when using it with their 2017 Wrangler Unlimited. If you really want to be able to use this feature then we have the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18113 is going to provide 6-1/2" of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front of the basket. A better choice, that will provide approximately 11" of clearance from the center of the hitch pin to the front of the basket is the Curt # C18150 and 10" from the rear bumper to the front edge of the basket (with a factory hitch). In addition to the added clearance, it's a bit larger to provide more space for storage. These measurements are taken...

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 120 lb Motorcycle with Class II Hitch
  • The best solution would be the 20 inch by 60 inch Rola cargo carrier part # 59530 which fits Class II hitches like what you have and has a 500 lb capacity. The total weight of the carrier is 33 lbs which gives you 317 lbs of capacity left over for the weight of your motorcycle. This does not have a ramp that comes with nor is one made specifically for it. So if you're okay with lifting the bike you could lift it onto the carrier or you could use a ramp like the # 288-07474 to easily get...

  • Which Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier is Ideal for Carrying a Scooter
  • Since scooters sometimes have a pretty low ground clearance the best motorcycle carrier solution would be the Detail K2 Motorcycle Carrier # K2TMC201 which has a totally flat tray without any raised sections. Also what makes this more ideal for a scooter is that the tray tilts down instead of requiring a ramp which also helps with ground clearance since the transition from the ramp to the tray would be a possible ground clearance issue with a scooter. I attached a review video for this...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Front Mount Hitch and Load Extender To Support Kayak on 2007 Toyota Sequoia
  • There is no reason why you couldn't install a front mount hitch and and add a front load bar to help support your Kayak and create more clearance between it and your travel trailer. The front mount hitch I recommend for your 2007 Toyota Sequoia is the Draw-Tite 2 Inch Custom Fit Front Mount Hitch Receiver # 65080 and for the load bar, the # MT70231 you were looking at is an excellent choice with plenty of capacity to support your 22 foot kayak.

What I highly recommend is the MaxxTow Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # MT70422 because at just 23 lbs it is the lightest carrier available, giving you nearly 100 lbs of capacity. so you can transport your gear. This carrier does come with a pin and clip though I recommend adding the...

  • Transporting 2016 Ninja 300 on 2006 Porsche Cayenne Turbo with etrailer.com Motorcycle Carrier
  • The etrailer.com Motorcycle Carrier w/ Ramp # e98873 that you referenced is a great solution for transporting your 2016 Ninja 300 behind the 2006 Porsche Cayenne. If the total length of your bike is just a few inches over the track's 76-1/4" length it won't be an issue, as the extra length would just be part of the tire beyond the platform like you mentioned. If you take a look at the attached image you will see how the bike is technically a bit longer then the carrier from end to end,...

  • Can 120 Pound Scooter be Transported with 2018 Hyundai Elantra SE

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).

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrier Options for Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to Keep Rear of Vehicle Accessible

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...

For example: the slide out feature does clear the hatchback on a 2014 Toyota Sienna like in the photo I have attached. It provides 31 inches of clearance between the center of the hitch pin hole (where it pins into the hitch) and the back of the carrier when slid out. If you have more than 31 inches from the center of the hitch...

  • Where to Mount Wiring on Trailer Hitch for 2018 Subaru Outback

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...

  • 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"...

I really like the idea of the tire-pad-strap you sent a picture of but we don't carry anything like that. If it were me though I'd go with the tried and true method of attaching tie downs to the handlebars of the bike like with the # EM31353. I grew up with motorcycles and we always used this...

You'd want the GearDeck 17 Enclosed Cargo Carrier part # H00604 which is RV approved and will work well. This can carry up to 17 cubic feet of storage space and has a 300 lb capacity. I attached a picture of what the carrier looks like installed on an RV as well as an install video for more info as well.

  • Lock for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier with Threaded Hitch Pin Hole
  • I do have a way to secure your cargo carrier with a lock, however as you are probably aware the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # e98874 uses a anti-rattle bolt with a threaded shank, so a standard hitch lock won't thread or fit in. The first and easiest option is to use a cable lock like etrailer.com 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891. You can wrap the cable lock around the cargo carrier and through the safety chain connection points on your hitch. This way the cargo carrier...

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...

  • Length of Shank on etrailer Cargo Carrier for Spare Tire Clearance of Jeep Cherokee
  • From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # e98874 when it is folded down is 19-1/2" so I'm pretty confident this will work in that orientation. You can measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest edge of your spare and make sure that it's under 19-1/2" just to verify. When the carrier is folded up that reduces the clearance by 10" so from the center of the hitch pin hole to the carrier will be 9-1/2" and...

Our recommended use is to completely remove the lid and unpack the carrier and then use the telescoping base to slide the generator away from your vehicle prior to use. If your generator does have exhaust that points downward, I recommend removing the generator from the carrier prior to use. If you are looking to use the generator...

That said, this could vary so much from vehicle to vehicle it would be hard to give a definite yes/no answers.

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.

  • 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.

The first difference is that the Carpod # M2205-2201 features a hinged shank that allows you to fold up the carrier against the vehicle when it's not in use (see attached image). The # M2200-2201 has a fixed shank that cannot be moved. Another improvement on the # M2205-2201 is that it has an angled shank that provides 5-1/2 inches of additional ground clearance. Other...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Bag for 55 lb Portable Power Wheelchair on 2016 Ford Mustang
  • For a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver, your options are definitely more limited. There are no cargo carriers with ramps available for that size, so you will need to use a hitch expander like # HTAD. Then for a carrier you will need a lightweight option because the adapter will reduce your hitch's 200 lb tongue weight capacity by up to 50%. For your carrier, the best option is the MaxxTow 27x47 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp # MT70100 that weighs 54.5 lbs. To keep your wheelchair clean, I...

  • When the etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98872 is completely folded up for storage, it gets down to a pretty compact size of 32-1/4 inches long x 11-1/4 inches wide x 21-1/4 inches tall, so if the space inside your RV's storage compartment is at least that big, you're good to go. Since the size of RV storage compartments can vary, you'll just need to take a quick measurement to ensure there is enough space to store the carrier inside. If you find that your compartment is too small, you can...

  • It is very common to see the 23x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # C18153 mounted on the rear of motorhomes using the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 which is rated for a gross trailer weight of 3500 lbs. and 350 lbs.of tongue weight. That said the carrier and hitch can both handle the weight of what you want to carry. As far as if the bumper can handle it you will need to check with your camper's manufaturer to ensure it can handle that weight.

  • License Plate Bracket for etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98872

  • What Cargo Carrier fits on a 2017 Ford Explorer With a Moonroof?
  • I checked the owner's manual of your 2017 Ford Explorer, and because of your moonroof, the weight capacity of your roof is just under 45 lbs. Our lightest rooftop carriers weigh 30 to 35 lbs, not leaving you much room for cargo; because of this restriction, I would avoid using any type of roof-mounted carrier. You will also not want to use a cargo bag because it would have to sit at least partially on the glass roof, which is not recommended. The best solution for you to haul cargo on...

  • 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...

You can use part # EM05308. Then to lock and hold the extender to your hitch receiver I recommend an anti-rattle lock # 63232.

  • 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...

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.

  • 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...
