22-1/2x49 Curt Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - Aluminum - 500 lbs - C18113

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (216 Customer Reviews)

Lightweight aluminum cargo carrier is easy to install and remove and won't detract from your hitch's tongue weight capacity. Attractive matte black finish protects against the elements and reflectors help make carrier visible at night.


I am giving a 5 star with the fact that the product was what I expected it to be, well description and pictures on line. Easy assembling took 20 minutes with only 4 bolts. Have not yet attached to hitch with any load so in hopes that works well. Seems sturdy with the attachable hitch with expanded stress frame. Only issue is parts bag was thin and open on one end with several parts spilled out into box. Box not to bad but could have lost a part. Needless to say I was a little gitty for a moment until I found the last of all parts still in box. After the find of all parts I give a five star for this product being what I expected. Just need to have parts in thicker bag and secured to the carrier would be a big plus. Otherwise you could end up with not all parts that would make a bad day.


Looks great, and functional. Note, the pin is not included, and unless you use a Hitch stabilizer (not included) it does wobble. It is a nice looking cargo carrier.


Solid welded construction with great protective finish

Well made hitch rack. Using with protective bag with added 14” plywood floor that I made. Great for camping gear, coolers, canoe and kayak paddles, and other bulky gear.

Nuts provided are stripped. Bolt just spins. Clearly this was a return that was just thrown together to fulfil the order. Now I have to go buy nuts and bolts in order to us it.

I can understand your disappointment in how the cargo carrier arrived. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/29/2022


I am a 59 year old women and recently widowed. This cargo carrier is light enough for me to carry from the house where I installed in my living room.

I traveled with it but did not end up loading anything in it yet. I did not hear it rattle and it cleared my driveway.


Lightweight, sturdy, easy to connect, secure. Everything we wanted in a cargo carrier.


Cargo carrier looks great and is pretty light. Only knock on it is that the hardware to bolt it together did not arrive in the package. I’ll have to go to the hardware store and find some bolts.

Thank you for leaving a review and for bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future!
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 11/12/2021


Just recieved this carrier yesterday, so I haven't used it yet.
It does seem to be very well built. I like that its aluminum and rusting won't be an issue.


OK, I have just received it and put it together but have not used it, therefore I can’t tell you how great it is. But I can’t say it looks very nice, went together easily, seems very sturdy, and should serve the purpose well for why I bought it.


This cargo carrier is perfect for people who have to install it alone. It's very light weight and sturdy. It appears well constructed, aside from the reflectors that are bound to fall off. One reflector fell off straight out of the box due to plastic being attached to the sticky back of it, causing it to not stick. Some reflective tape will fix that very small issue for me. There is a little bit of sway to it, so I'll be buying a hitch tightener. The slats will make it much easier to clean, and it looks nice on my 2018 Outback. There is a lack of attachment points for tie down, other than the wide slats. If you're using rope instead of bungees, this shouldn't be an issue. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality and weight of this carrier.


Light weight aluminum but well built! Extremely easy installation (4bolts). Dark powder finish adds a classy look to my suv! Very happy with this product and delivery was quick!


Sturdy. Well constructed. Fits my lifted jeep wrangler even with larger rear spare.

Great. It is perfect for my Jeep jk
Allen - 09/30/2021


Should have bought this a long time ago. I've been carrying a huge cooler when we go camping for the last 10 years. This item gave me my trunk back.

Assembly is stupid simple. Quality so far seems good. As a welder, I can be super critical of any welds on consumer equipment. These are better than I've seen from my buddy's UWS carrier that costs a lot more. My unit came with the eyelets that others were missing.


It seems sturdy, but the sticker was on upside down, and one of the reflectors was stuck on in completely the wrong spot, which we had to rectify. The company who made this must have a very sloppy worker! Hopefully there won't be other, hidden, defects and it will function well.


Delivered as ordered


Prompt delivery. Easy assembly. Haven’t used it yet, but I am very satisfied with it.


The carrier is perfect! Solid as can be. Shout out to the guy that knows how to read a Tape there. This was purchased specifically knowing I had 1/16th of an inch to play with.


* Arrived quickly
* Great looking welds
Assembled easily with included eye bolts
* Eye bolts provide additional tie-down points front & rear


So glad I researched carriers and found this one. Meets my needs exactly. Best features for me by far is its simplicity in construction, obvious strength/rigidity, with very high quality welds throught. Zero screws/bolts to rattle loose or catch on things. Buying on line can leads to some small 'dissapointments' however I am over the moon with this purchase.


Item arrived very quickly in good condition. It is packaged very well with extra protection for the corners. It literally is a piece of cake to assemble, just lay the basket upside down and place the hitch part on top. Slip in the 4 bolts and tighten...done! Haven’t used it yet seems very sturdy, very well built, and is light enough to easily hang it on a wall over your head. I looked at hitch hauls for weeks before finally finding and settling on this one and I’m very happy with this carrier. I definitely recommend this Curt cargo carrier.


Excellent product delivered on time. Appears to be very strong and well made, and was easy to assemble. I chose this model because it is just the right size and weight, as opposed to the others that are 60" in length. .


High quality product. Use constantly traveling from PA to FL. Light weight a plus.

Quality product- use several times a year when traveling from PA to FL. Light weight makes it easy for this older guy to install and remove.
Don M - 08/03/2021


This cargo carrier is solid, more solid than most aluminum carriers. Only four bolts to assemble - took less than 5 minutes. The shank pin-to-pin distance is 6" which is better than the longer distance on some carriers - keeps the weight closer to the car. High quality powder coat.


The cargo basket is lightweight, good quality and mounted on the hitch easily. This is the nicest quality cargo basket I saw, especially in its price range. We wanted to create extra space inside the Jeep when camping and traveling. We recently used it to travel with our coolers and it was incredibly easy and convenient. I highly recommend this cargo basket.

Pleased with ease of ordering, shipping time and quality of the product.

I spoke with Allison K prior to ordering and she was very pleasant and knowledgable.


Fit perfect on the back of my 2019 GX460 while still allowing the swing door to open. Just make sure you get the etrailer anti-rattle hitch stabilizer. I also added reflective tape to the sides since it only has reflectors on the back. Easy to carry and install due to the light weight.

  • Dimensions of Curt Cargo Carrier 18113
    I measured the distance of the hitch pin hole to the front of the Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # C18113 and found it was 29 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest part (the front) of the carrier, as you can see in the accompanying photo. It is also 6-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier. The cargo carrier basket measures 49 inches x 22-1/2 inches and is 4 inches tall.

    I contacted Curt and the inside dimensions of the Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # C18113 are 49" long x 22-1/2" wide x 4" tall. That is the usable space inside the carrier according to the tech at Curt.

  • Will the Curt Cargo Carrier Work On the Back of a Trailer
    The 49x22-1/2 Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18113 has a fixed shank which means unlike pivoting/folding shanks, there are very few weak points.. Therefore, it will hold up extremely well on the back of a trailer which has a much rougher ride than that on a vehicle.

  • Speed Rating For Cargo Carriers
    I am not sure why manufactures will put a speed rating on cargo carriers. For our cargo carriers, that is not the case. The Curt aluminum cargo carrier # C18113 is rated for highway speeds so there is no limitation for speed. I've included a video for you to watch and learn more about our carrier!

  • Does Curt Cargo Carrier C18113 Have 2 Inch Receiver

  • How to Determine if Curt Cargo Carrier # C18113 Will Clear Bumper of Vehicle
    The distance from the center of the hitch pin to the closest edge of the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18113 is 6 inches. You'd have to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the bumper to know if this will work. If you get more than 6 inches this will not fit.

  • Will Tail Gate On 2014 Jeep Wrangler Open With Curt Cargo Carrier Installed
    You can take a measurement to see if you have clearance when the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18113 is installed. The carrier basket outside height is about 5 inches. Since the shank portion is below the carrier, you would need to add about 2-1/2 inches so the distance from the bottom of the receiver shank to the top of the carrier rail is about 7-1/2 inches. Just measure from the bottom of the receiver opening on your Wrangler to the bottom of the gate on the back of your Jeep. If that...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier for a 2009 Honda CR-V
    For your 2009 Honda CR-V, I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75547 because it's a Class-III rated hitch and it's easy to install. The cargo carrier I recommend is the Curt aluminum carrier # C18113 because it weighs only 29 pounds and has raised side rails to help keep cargo secure. Before you load anything on your future cargo carrier, double-check your owners manual for the maximum tongue weight. Based on my research though, it is 150 pounds. As a result of a 150 pound tongue...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan NV that will not Interfere with the Rear Doors
    Most cargo carriers will allow you to open the rear doors of your 2013 Nissan NV when they are empty. Keep in mind, the trailer hitch receiver sits below the bumper and the walls of most hitch mounted cargo carriers are typically no taller than about 6 inches. The walls of the Curt 22-1/2x49 Cargo Carrier, # C18113, that you referenced has 4-3/4 inch tall walls, but if that is too high, then you could look into a cargo carrier like the Pro Series 20x48 Cargo Carrier, # 6502, that has...

    You are definitely on the right track with your research and findings. If your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon is listed for 200 lbs TW then even if you use a trailer hitch with a higher TW capacity, like the Draw-Tite # 76227 with a 600 lb TW, you are limited by the least rated component which would be your Outback Wagon at 200 lbs TW.

  • Is There an Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Curt Cargo Carrier C18113
    Though it does not come with one, you can absolutely get a locking anti-rattle bolt for the Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # C18113. What you will need for this is simply the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches # 63232. This gives you two benefits in one; it stops the rattle of the carrier and locks it to your hitch, so this part gives you a quieter ride while also protecting the investment you made in the carrier.

  • Are Fixed Cargo Carriers More Stable than Folding Carriers
    Folding cargo carriers do add a bit of movement since the hinge assembly has some play in it.

Then for a hitch lock with an anti-rattle device that will hold the carrier solid the # 63232 would be a great option.

    If you plan on carrying generators I would not use a bumper mounted hitch. The fact that the bumper is rated for a bike carrier says to me that you don't want to put anything else on it. A loaded bike carrier isn't all that heavy. But a cargo carrier with generators on it can create a lot of stress. A frame mounted hitch should be used.
