Can Curt Multi-Purpose Ball Mount be Used for Extra Height for Cargo Carrier on 2008 Honda Odyssey


Would like to use my Cargo Carrier with the Curt D210 ball mount see attached pic on my 2008 Honda Odyssey. In some situations, the Rola Carrier would bottom out so I wanted to try something to give me a bit more rise when using the carrier. Any issues I should watch out for when using this setup? I purchased the D210 from you guys quite some time ago, but just now getting around to using it.

The Curt # D210 is designed to hold a cargo carrier in the top while towing but can also be used exactly how you are using it; to get more height. Provided that you are withing the capacity of the hitch, D210, vehicle, and carrier (whichever has the lowest tongue weight capacity) then there will be no problems.

The D210 receiver portion has a capacity of 350 pounds. There should be a sticker on the hitch that lists its tongue weight capacity. The hitches we carry for the 2008 Odyssey all have tongue weight capacities of 350 pounds. If the vehicle has a tongue weight capacity listed anywhere it would be in the owners manual. The carrier has a 500 pound capacity so most likely it will be limited to 350 pounds (unless the vehicle is lower).
