Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2011 Subaru Outback with Drawtite Trailer Hitch


Im looking for a cargo carrier to use for my 2011 Outback, outfitted with a 2inch Drawtite hitch. I want something light, and less than what seems to be the standard 60, because it looks like that will extend well past the edges of the vehicle. I also want to keep it around 48inch to reduce the risk of overloading and exceeding the tongue weight. What you you suggest? Thanks.

For your 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon that has the Draw Tite hitch part # 36493 installed you would want the Maxxtow part # MT70422 for a carrier with lower side rails or the part # MT70108 that has higher rails on the side.

Both of these carriers are right at around 20 by 48 inches in size and are made of aluminum. The # MT70422 is about 6 lbs lighter at 26 lbs.

I attached review videos for both carriers on similar Outbacks like yours.
