Review of the Detail K2 20x60 Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche


Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Avalanche, were going to do a test-fit on the 24X60 Detail K2 Folding Cargo Carrier. Now, theyve designed this for use, as you can see, with two inch-hitches. It offers a 500-pound weight capacity. The part number on it is K2HCC602. Now to begin our test-fit, we slide the shank of the carrier right under the receiver tube of our hitch. As we do this, we will going to line up our pinhole with our hitch pin hole. We can take a standard 5/8 pin. Were going to slide that through.

You can see, sometimes you do have to wiggle it around a little bit to get it to go through there.Were going to secure it using our clip. Now, the pin and clip will be sold separately. The part number on that is PC3, if you dont already have one at home.The closest point of the carrier to the rear of our vehicle is going to be 4 inches away. Whats the best way to get this overall measurement Well do it right here. Overall, weve added about 12 inches to the length of the vehicle.

The carrier offers us about 12 inches worth of ground clearance there under the shank.Now, pulling the pin then the clip thats located here at the rear of the rack, its going to allow us to tilt it out and away from our vehicle. Its into our platform position now.When they become back or under the front, well slide our pin back through, and slide in a clip. With our carrier in this position, weve added No. Were doing the closest point here. The closest point of the carrier to the rear of our vehicle is about 13 inches away now.

It offers about 14 of an inch worth of ground clearance. Weve added about 34 inches to the length of our Avalanche.Check for tailgate clearance. As you can see, were going to have more than enough room to open our tailgate. Theres about 3 of an inch here in the front. The tailgate is going to come over.

Its about 11 of an inch over our deck.In this small area if youre going to be tracking items up, 11 is going to be about your limit if you do want to access to the tailgate. This is one of the better cargo carriers as far as with limiting how much overhang that we have. Keep that in mind. That might be a good option if you plan on stacking your items up.The exhaust on our avalanche exits here on the passenger side. Lets turn it outward and downward. It shouldnt have any kind of effect on heat-sensitive material that we might transport with our carrier.Now that weve taken a good look at the Detail K2 Folding 24X60 Cargo Carrier, lets take a look and see how that very same cargo carrier perform when I had it out on the test course.Here on our test course, well 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, well see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curve, or a pothole, or driving over uneven pavement.Once we get to the full speed bumps, well see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, a parking garage, or driveway. .
