Hitch, Cargo Carrier and Cargo Bag Recommendations for 2015 Acura MDX

Question:

Hi, I have a 2015 Acura MDX and it does NOT have a spare tire underneath. It has a pump on the inside. These are the item Im looking to get. C18153 Carrier 87649 Hidden Hitch Class 3 988501 Cargo Bag 63232 Anti-Rattle pin Are there any other items I would need to go along with these? Will I need another pin to use when the carrier is folded up? Is the carrier able to be used with and without the fold up part? Thanks

Expert Reply:

You've already got a pretty good line on what you're needing!

Although the Hidden Hitch # 87649 Class III trailer hitch you mentioned would work great, I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13146 because the crossbar of this hitch would be completely concealed behind the rear bumper, rather than a large portion of it being exposed as would be the case with the # 87649. Both hitches have the same capacity, and both are of similar quality. Most folks would rather have the hitch as concealed as possible, which is why I'd recommend the Curt hitch in this instance.

The Curt # C18153 cargo carrier you mentioned is one of our best sellers, it would be fully compatible with both the hitch and your vehicle. The folding portion is integral to the carrier, it isn't removable. The # 988501 cargo bag is exactly what I'd recommend to keep road grime and rain from damaging your cargo. For safety's sake, I always recommend wrapping anything that absolutely cannot get wet in plastic for good measure.

The # 63232 Anti-Rattle Lock would work just fine and you won't need a lock for the pin in the folding mechanism.
