Can I Add A Hitch Receiver And A Hitch Cargo Carrier To My 2020 Ford Escape


what size cargo carrier do I need for this vehicle just to carry gas cans 5 miles and yard works? and will my vehicle be okay to add the hitch


Expert Reply:

You will not have any problems adding a hitch receiver to your 2020 Ford Escape. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2", part # DR47FR. This hitch receiver has a maximum tongue weight of 675 lbs. Please check your owner's manual for the maximum tongue weight and adhere to the lowest value between the two.

Once you have the hitch receiver, then we can worry about the hitch cargo carrier. I recommend the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - Tilting - Folding - 500 lbs, part # e98874. This carrier weighs 48 lbs and has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. It has plenty of places to tie down your load. This carrier can be tilted down, even when loaded, so you can access the rear of your vehicle.

I have included a product description link, a hitch installation video and a video review link below.
