Review of the Curt 24x60 Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2013 Toyota RAV4

Today on our 2013 Toyota Rav4, we're doing a test fit of the Curt Cargo Carrier, part number 18153. This is a 24 x 60 cargo carrier, can hold up to 500 pounds, see there we already have it on I'll show you a few features. First like to do measurements, so from the bumper closer to our terra rack is 16 inches, overall we've added 42 inches on, and for our ground clearance, it's 13 inches. This made out of a sturdy steel, you see that it has the mesh bottom, so you can easy clean. Holds up to 500 pounds, like I say. On this side of the car, we have our exhaust, that's pretty far, it's 24 inches, so just in case, just remember, when you have any heat-sensitive materials that can come in contact, you may want to move them over. Can get in and out of your hatch as you can see. Let's see where we figure out what worked.

So about 24 inches, so just remember when you're packing your cargo bay, anything over 24 inches may not let you get in and outside your hatch, so just make sure. Like I say, this also does not come with a pin and hook, you can buy on our website, that part number's PC3. This does have a folding position, so let's show you that, pull our pin and clip, fold up, reinsert. Overall, the distance have changed. I'm looking at about 16 inches and closest distance has changed also. Now we're looking at about 6 inches.

That'll be it for our test fit of the Curt Cargo Carrier, part number 18153 on today's 2013 Toyota Rav4. Let's see how it does on our test course. Here it is on our test course, first at the slalom area, which simulates side-to-side action like turning the corners or evasive maneuvers. Next are the alternate speed bumps, which show you the twisting action like hitting a pothole, road debris, or hitting a curb. Finally, we're at the solid speed bumps, which show you the up-and-down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out your driveway.
