It's going to be the etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier. So as you can see it is going to be able to fit in a smaller space compared to other cargo carriers and that's going to be the main feature of this one here, whether it's just taking up less space in your garage or just having that option of adding a bunch of cargo storage to your van here just because it can fit a lot of different passengers and they probably got a bunch of gear whenever you're going to either sporting events or just a vacation. It's going to work with a two inch hitch receiver like so, slide it in just like that and it will come with an anti-rattle bolt.Not a lot of these cargo carriers come with them, but we included it with the kit.

etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

Adam: Hi, everyone. Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the eTrailer off road cargo carrier on our 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan. Some of you guys may be thinking this isn't an off-road vehicle, but the reason why I'm putting this on this car in particular is as you can see we have an 11-inch rise in our shank. A lot of the times when you have those flat cargo carriers, even if they only have about a two-inch rise in your shank, you're going to be bottoming out in almost any situation. In my opinion, this is going to be a great addition to your van, that you don't have to worry about it bottoming out and damaging your carrier, or even bending it or breaking your hitch receiver.
