Can Cargo Door be Opened When Using the Lets Go Aero GearCage FP6 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier


Can the cargo door still be opened while the carrier is installed?


Expert Reply:

It is possible that you can open your cargo door when using the 32x72 Lets Go Aero GearCage FP6 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier # H01397 with the GearBag 6 Cargo Bag # HCR635. Since there are a variety of different door styles out there though you will need to take some measurements to confirm this. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier in the fully extended position measures 29" as you can see from the attached photo.

If you don't think that this is enough room then what I recommend using instead is the 20 x 59 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18150 with the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483. This combination allows you to swing the carrier out and away from your vehicle. I have attached a review video where you can see this allows room for the rear of a Jeep with a spare tire to open up. If you go this route you will need a pin and clip like part # C21500 or a locking option like part # 63232. For a cargo bag that is close to the internal dimensions of this carrier I recommend the Curt # C18211.
