Review of the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2014 Ford Flex


Today on our 2014 Ford Flex we're doing a test fit of the CURT 20 by 48 cargo carrier. That part number is C18110. Now this is designed to work with 2" hitches as well as 1-1/4". It has a weight capacity of 300 pounds. Although it does have a pretty high weight capacity, it is lightweight so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. First thing we're going to do is take a few measurements here. We're going to start off with our ground clearance.

We've got about 14-1/4" of clearance down there. Overall to our vehicle we have about 27-1/2". Our closest point's going to be about 8-1/4" away there. Now on our Flex we do have dual exhausts, one from the passenger and one from the driver side. It comes straight out at the very edge of our carrier, sitting about 13" away.

If you're would be heat-sensitive materials, I'd keep those more so in your cargo area rather than on your cargo carrier. Next we'll check our hatch breakover point. This is going to be the point at which anything that's stacked on your carrier might make contact. That's going to be about 20". Just keep that in mind, especially since we do have an automatic hatch on this vehicle. You want to be careful to move all that off that's over 20" before opening your hatch. As for our hitch, I did mention before that this works with both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches.

You would just take off your included 2" sleeve. We have an anti-rattle bolt and clip down there. That's going to keep a lot of the shake and play out of the cargo carrier as you head down the road. That's going to be our completed look at the CURT 20 by 48 cargo carrier, part number C18110, on our 2014 Ford Flex.Speaker 2: 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.
