etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2019 Jeep Cherokee

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today, we're looking at our etrailer aluminum cargo carrier here on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee. So the aluminum cargo carrier is a great way to add some extra storage space, especially for cargo or gear that you don't want inside of your vehicle. For example, let's see, y'all go out to the beach. You go on a float trip, you get all that sand, all that dirt, all that water. You don't want that inside on your nice carpets on your Jeep Cherokee.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2019 Jeep Cherokee

Ryan: How's it going Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to be taking a look at the CURT aluminum cargo carrier.Now one of the things that really sets this one apart from many of the others is that it's made from aluminum, and so it's going to be incredibly lightweight and easy to handle. And if you ever happen to get it muddy or dirty and you need to clean it, rinse off with the hose, you're not going to have to worry about it rusting either.A cargo carrier is going to help accomplish a couple of different things. One, either carry more cargo than we can fit on the inside of our Jeep ,or carry that cargo that we would normally have inside, bring it out here, and free up some space for passengers and pets. And in my opinion too, with the Jeep not being a super wide vehicle, this one's going to look really good in proportion to it.Now it's going to be 49 inches long, 22 and a half inches wide, and 4 inches deep. Now something to keep in mind whenever you're pulling into a tight parking spot or into your garage with a cargo carrier on, it is going to extend the overall length of our Cherokee.
