Review of the Carr Mega Step Hitch Mounted Step


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Carr Mega Step. This is a 14-inch by 5-inch fold-down step designed to mount into 2-inch receiver tube hitches, and it offers a 500-pound weight capacity. The part number is CARR190011. The step will easily mount into the receiver tube of our hitch. Were just going to slide it in and line up our pin holes. Then we'll take a standard pin and clip and slide it through. If you don't already have a pin and clip, you can find it on our website as part number PC3.

Slide it in, as you can see. It's nice and attached. We've got a steel backing plate connected to our heavy-duty aluminum backing plate here. They've designed it of the aluminum so it's going to be corrosion-resistant, but then they've put a nice powder-coat silver finish on it to double up on that protection. You can see it's going to fold up nicely against the rear of the vehicle when it's not in use so you don't have that hanging down all the time. They've made it completely in the United States and they offer a limited lifetime warranty on it, so they really stand behind their product. A few of the uses you can use it for, one would be to step up on it to get over your tailgate, into your accessories and stuff in the bed of your truck. Maybe you've got an in-bed camper that you've been using on your truck and it's a little hard to get into.

Again, mount this into your hitch, it's going to ease getting up into that. On our application today with our SUV, if we had a cargo basket up there and needed to get to some of our gear, or with this particular one, it's hard to get up on the side to get to our connection points here at the rear or maybe to run in our screws or whatever the case may be. Now that we've gone over most of the key features of the rack and we showed you how to install it, that's going to complete today's look at the Carr Mega Step, part number CARR190011. .
