Expert Answers about Carpod

  • How do the Sides and Top Hold Together on the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier
  • On the Carpod cargo carrier # M2200-01-02 the sides hold together with pins like in the video I have linked shows. The top part is held to the sides with little clips. I have included a picture that shows the clips a little closer.

  • Difference Between Carpod M2200 And M2205 Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers
  • We do carry the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, part # M2205, and it has some great features. This cargo carrier has walls that fold flat and the entire carrier will fold up when not being used. The outside dimensions are 48-3/4 inches long x 24 inches wide x 22 inches tall, and it fits in a 2 inch receiver opening. This carrier weighs 54 lbs and it also features a shank with a 5 inch rise to provide a bit more ground clearance. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the...

  • Cargo Carrier with Spare Tire Clearance for 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • As a first step, you will need to determine what kind of clearance you will need. Measure from the hitch pin hole rearward until you clear the furthest rearward portion of the spare tire. The cargo carrier you choose will need to have a shank that is longer than that dimension. The FAQ article I've linked for you shows how to take that measurement. If your Wrangler has the stock tire size, this distance will be around 6 inches, but if you have larger tires, this distance could be greater....

  • What Size Trash Barrels Will Fit in the Carpod Trailer Hitch Mount Walled Cargo Carrier
  • Given the platform dimensions of the Carpod, # M2200, 47 inches across and 23 inches front to back, the carrier could hold 2 barrels with up to a 23 inch outside diameter each but to err on the side of caution I would say up to 22 inches each. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Recommended Enclosed Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier for 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-01-02 referenced in your question is designed for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. To ensure that this cargo carrier will be compatible with the trailer hitch on your 2014 Honda Odyssey, I recommend taking a measurement from the hitch pin hole on the hitch to the outermost edge of the rear bumper. This particular cargo carrier has a rather short distance of 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. This...

  • Fit of Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02 on 2006 Chevy Suburban
  • To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, part # M2205-01-02 will fit your Suburban, you will need to take a quick measurement. Measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. If this distance is less than about 2 inches, then the carrier will fit. If not, you will not be able to slide the shank into the receiver far enough for the hitch pin holes to align. Carpod offers # M2200-2201 that offers a bit more clearance, if your distance...

  • Recommended Hitch Pin for the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02
  • The Carpod Walled and Folding Cargo Carrier does not come with a hitch pin clip. The basic hitch pin clips that you will need is part # PC3. For added security and to help deter theft you can use the Let's Go Areo Anti-Rattle Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232. If you were wanting to add some security to your cargo carrier, I recommend using the Master Lock Padlock # ML312D for when the top is closed.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Recommendation to Carry a Load of 415 lbs on Rough Roads
  • If you are planning on carrying a load of 415 lbs on a cargo carrier on rough roads, then you will want a cargo carrier that is rated significantly higher than your load weight. The downward force of the load after a bump could exceed the 450 lb weight capacity of the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02, and cause damage. I would recommend the Rola Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59502. This cargo carrier has a weight capacity of 600 lbs and is our highest rated hitch mounted cargo carrier...

  • Can Rear Hatch on a 2010 Honda Pilot be Opened with a Carpod Trailer Hitch Mount Carrier Installed
  • On the 24x48-3/4 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier is 4 inches. On the 2010 Honda Pilot, it will clear the rear bumper but you will not be able to raise the rear hatch with the carrier in place. What I recommend is an enclosed carrier that swings out to the side so that you have complete access to the rear of the vehicle and can open the rear hatch. Take a look at the Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo...

  • Difference Between the Carpod part numbers M2205-01-02 and M2200-01-02
  • The difference between the two Carpods that you referenced is that the part # M2205-01-02 can fold up and the # M2200-01-02 does not fold. The only color that the # M2202 comes in is black. You should note that this bag is included with both carriers mentioned. The bag would take the shape of the cargo installed in it for the most part. If you filled out the bag it would not sag at all.

  • Recommendation on a Carpod Walled Carrier to be Used With a 2008 Buick Enclave
  • For your 2008 Buick Enclave, I like the Carpod Walled Carriers that include the polyester weather-resistant storage bag like # M2205-01-02 and # M2200-01-02. The storage bag will give the ability to store your items in privacy while keeping them out of the weather elements. Of these two Carpod carriers, I recommend # M2200-01-02, because of the added security of a lockable lid. This added feature will enhance the security of your cargo as you travel. These two carries have a 450 lbs...

  • Will Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205 Clear Rear Spare Tire on 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
  • You can determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205 will clear your Wrangler's rear-mounted spare tire by taking a simple measurement. Measure the distance from the center of your 2-inch hitch's hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the vehicle - which is the back edge of the spare tire. If this measurement is less than 7-inches then the Carpod carrier will clear it even when it is folded up in its storage position. Please see the linked photo I have prepared for you. When...

  • Opening Truck Tailgate With Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Installed
  • If the # M2200-01-02 Carpod Cargo Carrier is collapsed down (see photo), you'll be able to open your tailgate, but if the carrier is in its set-up position, the nearest wall of the carrier will be 4 inches rearward of the hitch pin hole. This wouldn't allow enough room to lower the tailgate. We do offer carriers that are placed further away from the bumper, like the Curt # C18153. To see if this carrier would allow your tailgate to open when loaded, open the tailgate and measure 19...

  • How to Measure for Clearance on a 2010 Honda Pilot for Trailer Hitch Mounted Accessories
  • When looking at trailer hitch mounted accessories for your 2010 Honda Pilot you will want to make sure that they have a long enough shank (the part that goes into the receiver) in order for the accessory to clear the rear of the vehicle. The measurement is taken from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance require to clear the rear of the vehicle. The easiest way to take this measurement is to use a yardstick or other tall, flat object and place it against the rear of the...

  • Will Carpod Cargo Carrier for 2-Inch Hitches M2205 Fit a 1-1/4-Inch Hitch on 2012 Toyota Prius V
  • The Carpod Walled Folding Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches, part # M2205, will fit into the 1-1/4-inch hitch receiver on your 2012 Toyota Prius V wagon only if used with an adapter. The problem with using hitch adapters is that they reduce the hitch weight capacity by half. The hitches we offer for your 2012 Prius V are all light-duty Class I hitches which are rated for a tongue weight of 200-lbs. The link provided will show you all of these. If an adapter is used the hitch capacity drops...

  • Will Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier Fit 2011 Buick Enclave
  • I have a solution for you, but the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-01-02 does not extend far enough out from the trailer hitch to fit well on your 2011 Buick Enclave. The trailer hitches we've installed on the Enclave required 5 inches of distance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the closest part of the carrier in order to clear the bumper. The # M2200-01-02 offers only 4 inches, meaning it would not work on your vehicle. Instead, the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier...

  • Cold Weather Performance of Cargo Bags
  • Carpod was not able to provide me with any details about how the bag would perform in sub-zero temperatures. The polyester material of the bag seems a bit thin to me, leaving me doubtful about its super-cold weather performance. I like the Extra Large Cargo Bag, part # 988501. The bag has a large 18 cubic foot capacity and is constructed of a thick PVC coated ripstop nylon for maximum durability. The material is waterproof, but we cannot accurately describe the bag as waterproof because...

  • Will the Carpod Enclosed Cargo Carrier Clear the Bumper on a 2012 GMC Acadia
  • The shank on the Carpod, # M2205-01-02 would most likely interfere with the bumper on your Acadia. It does not come out far enough before reaching the portion of the shank that rises. I recommend the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110. It has a straight shank that measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. You also get the benefit of an enclosed carrier rather than the cage type of the Carpod. Plus, the Rola carrier can also be used...

  • Will the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200 Fit a 2011 Honda Pilot Touring
  • In order to determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200, or any trailer hitch mounted accessory will fit your 2011 Honda Pilot Touring Edition, you will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 4 inches, the carrier will fit. The carry is designed for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers so it is compatible with the factory hitch on your vehicle. I have included a link to...

  • Can Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier Work With 2017 Chevrolet Equinox
  • Per the owner's manual for your 2017 Equinox, the towing capacity of your vehicle is 1,500-lbs. When using any hitch mounted items like the Carpod, you are limited at 10 to 15 percent of the towing capacity which would be betwen 150 and 225 lbs maximum. The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier like part # M2205-2201 weighs 54-lbs so you need to consider that in with the cargo when calculating the tongue weight. I have attached a link to our product page for the Carpod walled carriers we...

  • Fit of Carpod # M2200-01-02 Cargo Carrier on 2012 Acura MDX
  • To determine if the Carpod # M2200-01-02 Cargo Carrier will fit in your 2012 Acura MDX, you'll need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole and the receiver and the rear-most portion of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 4 inches, the Carpod carrier would work great. When we installed hitches on a 2012 MDX, we found that the Curt # 13354 had 3-1/2 inches of clearance, while the Draw-Tite # 75614 had 3-3/4 inches of clearance. Personally, I'd like to see at least...

  • Is the bag in the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02 Water Proof
  • The bag that is inside the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200-01-02, is weather-resistant but is not considered water proof. For something to be considered water proof it has to be submerged under water for a certain period of time and the inside and contents must stay dry. For general rainy conditions the bag will do well to help keep items inside dry but we still recommend placing items that cannot get wet in plastic bags.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Carrier With Ramp For Mower And Rototiller On 2011 Toyota Tacoma
  • We do have just what you are looking for. I recommend the MaxxTow Carrier With Ramp, part # MT70260. This carrier fits receiver openings and has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. The carrier measures 50 long x 30 wide x 6-1/2 tall. This carrier has a ramp as you mentioned. The ramp measures 28 inches wide and is 60 inches long.

  • The recommended cargo bag for the Carpod Carrier part # M2205-2201 that you referenced is the Carpod Bag part # M2202. This bag is specifically designed to fit the inner dimensions of the # M2205-2201 so it would be the best choice. This bag is weather resistant so it would do an excellent job in the snow and ice you will be traveling in. For added security from the weather you can also put your cargo in a plastic bag before installing in the cargo bag. But realistically your cargo...

  • The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier with Lockable Lid and Cargo Bag # M2200-01-02 will work with the Master Lock Covered Solid Body Padlock # 141T. If you are looking for a hitch lock, I would recommend the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 7683. I have included a video of the hitch lock for you to check out. Both locks are sold separately from the cargo carrier. You will need a 2 inch receiver to carry this cargo carrier on your 1999 GMC Safari. If you do not have a receiver, I recommend the...

  • Fit of Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier #M2200 on a 2012 Toyota Highlander
  • To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier will fit on your 2012 Highlander, you will need to take a measurement off of your hitch. Measure the distance rearward from the hitch pin hole until the furthest rearward portion of the bumper is cleared. If this measurement is less than the 4 inch hitch pin hole to basket measurement of the Carpod Carrier, it will fit. This being said, I would not recommend using it unless your measurement was 3 inches or less, to allow an inch space between...

  • Are Carpod # M2200 Cargo Carrier and Hidden Hitch # 87626 Compatible with 2012 Ford Escape
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame, # 75751, is the same as the Hidden Hitch you mentioned, and is compatible a 2012 Ford Escape equipped with back up sensors, but the sensors will need to be switched off or disabled before installing an accessory such as the Carpod # M2200. When installed, there will be about 1-1/2 inches of clearance between the hitch pin hole in the receiver and the rear edge of the bumper. Since the Carpod M2200 has a shank whose measurement is longer than that, the Carpod...

  • Can I Open my Hatch Area on my 2015 Toyota 4Runner When the Carpod M2205 is in the Folded Position
  • When the Carpod hitch cargo carrier # M2205 is in the folded position, the measurement from the top of the receiver hitch to the top of the Carpod is 3-1/4 inches tall. It's 5-1/4 inches tall overall measuring from the bottom of the receiver hitch to the top of the Carpod. You will have some rattle noise but I don't think it's going to be extremely loud at all. Going over bumps, potholes etc. will cause some rattle but it's certainly very secure. There is an option to get the Carpod...
