Review of a UWS Aluminum Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan


Today on our 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan, well be test fitting the UWS Aluminum Cargo Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part number UWS03511.With our vehicle equipped with the 2-inch hitch, were ready to go ahead and install our cargo carrier. Well simply slide the cargo carrier shank into the hitch, line up the hitch pinhole, and insert our hitch pin. Well then come back and put on the safety clip on the other side of the hitch pin, and with that our cargo basket is secured to the vehicle and were ready to go ahead and load it up.With our cargo basket secured, well go ahead and give you a few measurements. From the closest point of the basket to the back of the vehicle is 1 inches. The cargo basket will add an additional 24 inches overall length to the vehicle and 9 inches of ground clearance from the back of the basket. Well now go ahead and try to open the cargo door.

And, with this basket, the cargo door can open all the way up, although we can only gain access to the corners of the cargo area. And from inside the rails, the dimensions measure 20 inches wide by 48 inches long and our side rails measure 5 inches tall. With the exhaust exiting out the rear on the passenger side, this cargo carrier may have some heat exposure in that corner while driving down the road although it does appear that the basket sits higher than the exhaust pipe exit.And with that, that completes our test fit of the UWS Cargo Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part number UWS03511 on our 201 Dodge Grand Caravan.
