Review of the Curt 19x60 Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche we're going to do a test fit on the 19 by 60 CURT folding cargo carrier. This has been designed for use in 2" hitches, offers a 500 pound weight capacity. Part number is C18100. Now the aluminum construction of this carrier makes it a very light one for installing in your vehicle, so if you've got any kind of weight limit or weight restriction this may be a really good choice for you. We're going to begin by sliding the shank into the receiver tube of our hitch. We'll need to line up our pinhole with our hitch pinhole. With those lined up we'll take our standard 5/8 pin, we'll slide this through.

Then we can secure it with our clip. Now the pin and clip are sold separately. We've got that listed on our website as part number PC3. If you don't already have one at home, pick one up. In this position the closest point of our carrier to the rear of our vehicle is going to be about 2" away. Overall we have added about 7-1/4" to the length of our Avalanche.

We have a ground clearance of about 12-1/4". Right here at the very bottom we've got a pin and clip combo that once pulled is going to allow us to tilt the carrier out and away from the vehicle. We'll then take our pin, slide it in the front here, and secure it by sliding in our clip. Let's get another set of measurements now. Looks like now the closest point of the carrier to the rear of the vehicle's going to be about 7-1/2" away.

Overall we've added about 26-3/4" to the length of the vehicle. Then we're going to have about 14" worth of ground clearance. Now it looks like we will be able to fully open our tailgate. Yeah, as you can see, it's going to give us all the room we need. Looks like off the deck of the platform to the lowest edge of our tailgate we've got about 12", so just keep that in mind if you're going to be stacking up items higher than that. It might limit the access you have into your truck bed. The exhaust on the Avalanche, it exits here on the passenger side.

It's turned downward; it's pointed out away from the carrier so it shouldn't have any kind of effect on heat-sensitive materials we may transport. Now that we've taken a good look at how the CURT folding cargo carrier works with our 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche, let's see how that very same cargo carrier performed when they had it out 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. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or a 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, parking garage, or driveway. .
