Review of the Carpod Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2016 Chrysler Town and Country


Today on our 2016 Chrysler Town & Country we're doing a test fit of the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier. It is 23x47, has a folding feature and has a weight capacity of 450 pounds. The first thing we're going to do is take a few measurements. Our ground clearance here is going to be about 18 3/4 inches. Overall to the vehicle we're adding about 32 1/4 inches. Our closest point right here at our raised shank is going to be about 2 1/2 inches away.

On our vehicle we have a single passenger side exhaust. It does come straight down towards the ground so you shouldn't have to worry about carrying any heat sensitive materials in a certain place on your carrier. Obviously we can't access our hatch right now but we do have an option too. If we pull out our pins on each corner we can lay our sides down. We're able to set those down. We can take our four pins and set those off to the side.

I would suggest keeping them in a glove box or having a strap where you can put them all together and store them somewhere. I'd then like to take my included strap and set that in the middle, just so it's easier to grab. I'll lay down my larger sides here. We can then pull our strap through, straighten it out a bit and connect those. What that's going to do is keep those sides all stuck together so when you're driving sown the road, if you keep it in this position you won't have it flying up and damaging anything.

Also when we get to the folding feature, it's going to keep those together so it doesn't damage your vehicle. Now in this position we can access our back hatch area and get anything in or out that we may need. We can close that up and we'll show you the folding position. We come to the middle pin and clip here. We'll remove that. We can reach around the back and lift straight up on our carrier and reinsert our pin and clip.

Then we'll take a few measurements. We've got about 13 inches of clearance. We're adding about 9 inches to the vehicle. Our closest point is about 4 inches away there. This is going to be great if you're wanting to parking close quarters parking spots like parking garages or just to store it and get it out of the way. It will be a great position for that as well. Down here we do have a hitch pin and clip holding that in. Now that hitch pin and clip is not included but you can find that on our website, part number PC3. That's going to be our completed look at the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier part number M2205 on our 2016 Chrysler Town & Country. Let's see how it does on the test course. Here on our test course we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage or driveway.
