Review of the etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2019 Toyota Sienna

Hi everyone. Adam with Today we're going to be taking a look at the etrailer hitch mounted cargo carrier on our 2019 Toyota Sienna. What we're going to do in this video is just go over some of the main features of this cargo carrier and also how it interacts with this vehicle. On top of that, there is a couple of different options that we can have to grab some more products that'll attach onto this carrier.But, for now, we're just going to go over features and one of which is going to be a 60 by 24 inch cargo carrier. And these rails are going to sit up about five and a half inches.

It is going to be made of steel, giving you about 500 pounds of weight capacity and it's going to have that powder coated finish too. It's going to resist against rust and corrosion over time. It is going to be made with only a two inch shank so be sure to check and see what size trailer hitch receiver that you may have. And then, obviously, if it's a two inch grab one of these.It does have a two inch rise, which on our inaudible 00:01:04 here, the lowest part here is going to be about nine and a half inches so we don't have a whole lot of ground clearance right here, but I don't really think we'll have any issues bottoming out unless you have an extremely aggressive driveway. Let's just see how the Sienna back hatch, we'll call it the break over point, to see at which it's actually going to come up and go over our cargo.

That seems to be about right.And this is just going to let you know how high you can stack your goods before you're going to lose access to your hatch. 22 inches. I think you'll be fine. I mean that's kind of a lot, 24 by 60 and then 22 inches tall. I think we will be able to get everything on here without going over that 22 inch mark.

But if we do go over not 22 inch mark, we actually can tilt. That's what's, honestly, one of the best features about this cargo carrier. You don't see it a whole lot. All we really need to do is pull those pins. Might have to pull up on this a little bit, check that out.And now, even if we have a big ole' stack of goodies on the back of here we honestly aren't even going to break over this line here, as you can see.

That's definitely going to be probably one of the best features about this rack that you don't really get on a lot of the ones we carry here. And to bring it back up, I'm doing this by myself now, but if you have a lot of gear you might need an extra set of hands to pivot that up.We're going to replace our pins here like so. Now let's check and see how much length we added to the back of our vehicle. We're going to go from our bumper all the way to the edge here. It's going to be about 39 and a quarter inches. And at that 39 and a quarter inch spot let's check and see how much ground clearance we have. We're going to have about 13 and a half inches. That's not a whole lot, but not really very small number. Again, aggressive driveway, probably would be the only culprit that will bottom you out here. But this van doesn't really sit up too high.Another thing we could do with this, if we just got to our destination, you pull into the house you guys are staying at for vacation or whatever it is, if it's close to the road or just kind of in the way we can actually fold this up just to get it out of the way. And to do that you just pull both the pins and we're going to tilt this up like so. And of course just replace our pins.Very nice. Now let's measure from our bumper, and we brought it all the way down to about 15 inches. That's definitely a plus. We don't really have a whole lot of movement as you can see. I don't think we'll have any issues hitting our hatch here. But just so you know, it is about five inches away from our Toyota sign here.Let's go over the stuff that you can purchase separately to make this carrier yours. I'm going to fold it down so I can point it out easier to you guys. What we could do if we are stacking our stuff up pretty high, maybe our tail lights might be blocked. We do have a taillight kit for this cargo carrier and you're basically just going to wire it up and just have an extra set of taillights just so people can see you when you're going down the road, if your lights are blocked. Also, if your lights are blocked, obviously our license plate is going to be blocked. We also do have a license plate bracket that'll go on here as well.Another thing that I would suggest just grabbing, if you don't have them, is ratchet straps. With these rails here, there's going to be plenty of room to be able to actually find a great spot to tie down all of our stuff. Last feature, I guess, would just be the mesh floor. Sometimes when ever you're going somewhere in the summer you have wet gear, muddy gear, whatever it may be, it's all going to be able to fall through really easily and honestly pretty much dry on the drive home. You'll keep the inside of your Sienna nice and clean for the trip. And all your kiddos or whoever you're hauling with have a lot more room just to relax and maybe just be a little bit more quiet on the road.But other than that, if this video helped you I would really appreciate it if you guys just go ahead and let us know how you guys use it. Hopefully this information helped you decide if this is the right one for you or what features do you like and dislike. But again, this is our etrailer cargo carrier on our 2019 Toyota Sienna.Here on our test course we'll start by going through the inaudible 00:06:34. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvering. 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. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps we'll see the twisting action, this will simulate hitting a curb, or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement.
