Comparing Thule and Rola Enclosed Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carriers


Capacity of 150lbs. Vs.250 LBS. For Rola


Expert Reply:

If weight carrying capacity is an issue, going with the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110, if you have a 2 inch receiver, would be the way to go. If you have a 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitch receiver, then the correct Rola carrier is # 59108 and it also has a capacity of 150 pounds like the Thule model, # TH665C.

If you are choosing between the two models for a 1-1/4 inch hitch, then I would go with the Rola carrier, # 59108, because even though they have the same capacity, the enclosed part of the Rola carrier can be removed so that you can use the flat base as a carrier so it is more versatile.

If you do have a 2 inch receiver, Rola Carrier # 59109, with its higher capacity and versatility, would be my choice. I have included some video links for you.
