Folding or Fixed Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2018 GMC Yukon


which curt cargo bag would best fit with the 18153 carrier? which reese bag would best fit with the 63153 carrier? Also, would you recommend Curt of Reese? I own a 2018 GMC Yukon. I see Reese carriers are primarily fixed with Curt are folding. What are the pros and cons of fixed versus folding? Thanks for your help!

With the Curt cargo carrier part # C18153 the Curt Cargo Bag part # C18211 would fit perfectly. This bag has diemensions that are 56 inches long by 22 inches wide and the internal dimensions of the carrier are 60-1/8 inches by 23-3/4 inches.

The Reese cargo carrier part # 63153 that you referenced basically has the same dimensions as the Curt so the cargo bag # C18211 would be a great option.

The advantage of a folding carrier is that you get additional clearance behind it when not in use. The advantage to a fixed carrier is that they are a bit more stable since hinges add a bit of movement. If you check out the test course videos I attached for both carriers mentioned you'll see what I mean.
