Will the GearSpace 34 Enclosed Cargo Carrier # HGK826 Clear the Rear Door on a 2015 GMC Acadia


Will it clear the rear door on 2015 GMC Acadia? Any other issues on this model?

We haven't been able to test the GearSpace 34 Enclosed Cargo Carrier # HGK826 on very many vehicles, like your 2016 GMC Acadia, but I can give you some measurements that will allow you to figure that out for your own setup.

When the GearSpace 34 is fully extended it sits out about 31" away from the center of the hitch pin hole. The box hase outside dimensions of 68" long x 33" wide x 40" tall and the shank has a 6" rise.

If you measure 31" out from the center of your hitch pin hole you can then imitate what the box will look like by measuring about 45" - 46" tall from the top of the inside of your hitch receiver. The extra 5" - 6" will account for the rise in the shank.

If that does not clear your rear door you do have the option to add an 8" hitch extender, like the Tow Ready # 80307, but keep in mind that it will reduce the Tongue Weight (TW) rating of your trailer hitch or your Acadia (whichever is lower). You can also use the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 to help reduce the extra play from the extender.
