Recommendation for a Secure Enclosed Cargo Carrier


Hi, it seems like a small set of bolt cutters would easily afford access to the cargo contained in this carrier. How thick is the welded wire siding? the fully enclosed Rola model seems slightly more secure in that way, but the locks appear kind of dainty. Is that the case? do you have a recommendation on best security for enclosed hitch mount cargo carrier? I like the Thule but not enough weight allowance. thank you

Given enough time and the proper tools any enclosed cargo carrier can be broken into. Locks can be drilled, bolts can be cut, mesh can be removed.

Realistically though a would-be thief will move on to an easier target if they encounter a lock. For an enclosed carrier I recommend the Rola that you mentioned, # 59109 for 2 inch hitches or # 59108 for 1-1/4 inch hitches. They may not have the most robust locks out there but a completely enclosed box is less enticing than one with a mesh screen like # M2205-01-02.
