Review of the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Ford Edge

Today on this 2011 Ford Edge, we're going to be test-fitting the 20 by 60 Curt Cargo Carrier with a 500-pound weight capacity, Part Number C18150. Now, we have it installed on our hitch already. You can see this has this nice mesh flooring here, which is going to make it a lot easier to clean it whenever you have whatever it is that you don't want inside your vehicle. Let's start out by giving a couple measurements, here. I'm going to first give you the measurement of the distance added to the vehicle from the bumper. That's going to be about 27 inches. Next we'll give you the ground clearance. It looks like to be about 14 inches.

Then, the closest point to the bumper, which will be this point here, you're looking at about 5 and 3/4 inches. I would like to point out that this has a dual exhaust, so we'll go ahead and give you a measurement for that real quick. This is between that and the cargo carrier. It's going to be about 10 inches. Just keep that in mind whenever you're loading stuff on here, to make sure you don't put any heat-sensitive materials right there next to the exhaust.

Try to put them in the center. Now, with nothing in here, of course you can gain access to your cargo area, or rear hatch, but we're going to give you a measurement for a breakover point, which is the point that the hatch is going to come in contact with anything that you've loaded onto your cargo carrier. You can stack things about 24 inches high, so you've got a pretty decent distance there. Now, this is for 2-inch hitches only. I would like to point out that the hitchpin and clip that we have here is not included with this cargo carrier. Today we're using Part Number PC3, which you can find on There you have it, for the Curt Cargo Carrier, Part Number C18150, on our 2011 Ford Edge. Here it is 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. Next, we're at the alternating speed bumps, which we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Finally, we have the full speed bumps, where we'll see the up and down action, which is just like driving out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway.
