Review of the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2019 Jeep Cherokee


Ryan: How's it going Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to be taking a look at the CURT aluminum cargo carrier.Now one of the things that really sets this one apart from many of the others is that it's made from aluminum, and so it's going to be incredibly lightweight and easy to handle. And if you ever happen to get it muddy or dirty and you need to clean it, rinse off with the hose, you're not going to have to worry about it rusting either.A cargo carrier is going to help accomplish a couple of different things. One, either carry more cargo than we can fit on the inside of our Jeep ,or carry that cargo that we would normally have inside, bring it out here, and free up some space for passengers and pets. And in my opinion too, with the Jeep not being a super wide vehicle, this one's going to look really good in proportion to it.Now it's going to be 49 inches long, 22 and a half inches wide, and 4 inches deep. Now something to keep in mind whenever you're pulling into a tight parking spot or into your garage with a cargo carrier on, it is going to extend the overall length of our Cherokee.

And by exactly how much, from the bumper to the end of the carrier, it's going to be about 26 and a half inches.And if you do plan on stacking up your carrier really high and you still want full access to your hatch, something you have to keep in mind is whenever you open up the hatch, eventually it is going to overlap with the carrier. Now that exact point, it's going to be about 21 inches. So in other words, that's how high you can stack your cargo and still have full access to your hatch without it interfering.And one thing that really impressed me actually, with this being so lightweight and somewhat compact, is it's still going to have a 500 pound maximum weight capacity. And with how these slots are as opposed to your traditional mesh bottoms that other cargo carriers have, this is going to give you more than enough room to kind of get your hand in between and put on your strap to hold all your gear down.And although the matte black finish looks really, really good, it can get a little tricky to see when it's dark outside. You're not really going to have to worry about that because it does have these reflectors, and that's really going to help light up when another car's headlights shine on the back of your Jeep.And one thing I do want to point out, I notice that there is a little bit of movement here in the connection point.

Well, one thing you can do to combat that is picking up a anti-rattle pin, which will keep this nice and stable. And it is going to have a straight shank, and it's going to work with those two-inch by two-inch receiver tube openings.This is our test course. Let's start with alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or even uneven pavement.And that'll finish up our look at of the CURT aluminum cargo carrier on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
