Helpful Expert Reply:

With the proper hitch installed on your 2017 Toyota Highlander like the Draw Tite part # 76156 the GearSpace 34 Enclosed Cargo Carrier # HGK826 that you referenced would easily not be too heavy for the vehicle. The carrier weighs 189 lbs unloaded and the Draw Tite hitch referenced has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity which means it would easily be strong enough. Also we've installed this on lighter duty vehicles like mini vans (see picture) and the carrier and vehicle were just fine.

Also since we were able to open the rear door of the mini van (see second picture), which has a taller rear door than the Highlander, it would also have the clearance to open the Highlander rear hatch.
