Review of the Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2014 Toyota Tundra


Today with our 2014 Toyota Tundra, we'll be doing a test fit of the CARPOD walled cargo carrier. That's part #M2205. Its interior dimensions are 23 by 47, it has a 450 pound weigh capacity. It's held in place in our receiver here with a pin and clip. The pin and clip is not included, you'll need to pick that up here at etrailer.com, part #PC3. Let's go ahead and take a few measurements. Starting with our ground clearance back here, we're looking at about 23 1/2 inches.

It's overall about 36 1/2 inches from that end. For our nearest point would be about right here to here, that's 5 1/2 inches. If we need to get into our tailgate, I'll just go ahead and show you how much room we've got here. With the walls up, we can open it about that much, as you can see there, so enough room to maybe grab some items on the end here before it makes contact. Now our exhaust exits right here on the passenger side of our Tundra, or out to the right. We don't have to worry about carrying any heat-sensitive materials in our carrier, we can carry whatever we want. The nice thing about this is it does collapse down and fold up against our tailgate for compact storage.

What we want to do, we'll start by removing the pins, we're going to fold the outside walls in first. The nice thing about this closest wall here is it's got a stopper so we know it's not going to hit our tailgate, so we'll undo that one first. We'll undo this one and work our way around. Before we raise that up, let's check our tailgate clearance with it folded down, this will point out we've got a full drop so if we need access to our tailgate. One other thing before we fold that up, CARPOD does include a strap to help keep it together so it doesn't hit our tailgate, we'll go ahead and just run that through, get that nice and secure for us, come up through our cam buckle here and pull it nice and tight.

The way to raise it up, we'll come over here, remove the 2 pins, raise it up, and align our pinholes down here, push that back through, replace the 2 clips and we can take a few more measurements. With everything folded up, our ground clearance back here, we're looking at about 18 1/2 inches. Overall to the Tundra, with it folded we've got about 14 inches. Our nearest point has not changed from our shank there, about 5 1/2 inches as you see there. That's going to complete our test fit of the CARPOD walled cargo carrier, part #M2205 on our 2014 Toyota Tundra. Let's see how that carrier did on our test course. This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom.

This shows side to side action, such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. On to our alternating speed bumps, this shows twisting actions, such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris or uneven pavement. Last of all, the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action, such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway.
