Review of the etrailer RV Cargo on a 2017 Starcraft Solstice Lite Fifth Wheel


AJ: What's up, everybody It's AJ with etrailer.com. Today, we are checking out the etrailer RV Cargo Carrier on our 2017 Starcraft Solstice Lite 287RLS. Now, this cargo carrier's interior dimensions right away are 24 x 40. So, let's check that out just to prove it. 40 and 24. So, that's just how much usable space you have inside this cargo carrier to get your stuff out of the fifth wheel and out here.

Most people like to put generators on here. That way, the gasoline doesn't stink up the inside of their fifth wheel. If you've got some extra room here, you can throw a cooler or some other heavy item like that.This cargo carrier can hold up to 500 pounds. Just look at the bars here and see their thickness. They're real tough.

The whole cargo carrier doesn't move at all. I'm going to try and shake it here on the bumper. It's not moving. It's solid. I'm fully confident that I can put my generator on here and it's not going anywhere.

Now, let's talk about how far it sticks out from the bumper, how much space it adds to your RV. From the outside of the bumper to the edge, looks like it's about 26 inches. So, be mindful of that with that on the back of your bumper when you're backing up and stuff like that. You can also fold the cargo carrier up to save some space. Let's show you how to do that.I also want to say, when you go to set this up on here, be mindful of the ladder.

If your ladder goes in just a little bit more than this one, or your bumper comes out just a little bit more than this one, it'll fold up just fine. We weren't able to get it to fold up against the ladder today, but it'll still fold up over here. So, we'll come down here and pull the pins, and then just fold it up. Folds up that easy, then you can take the pin and slide it up here through this hole. Just reattach the pin. I'm just going to put one in for right now, because we're going to pull it right back down, but I want to get a measurement while it's folded up too, see how much space it takes up now.This time, we'll go from the fifth wheel itself out to the most edge, which looks like it's probably this point here. So, let's get closer to that. Looks like it's about 15 inches. So, it's 15 inches when it's folded up, which, as you can see, is far less than your spare tire carrier here, so you won't even have to worry about it. You won't know it's there. Let's fold it back down, get one last good look at it, because it has another pretty cool feature.If you have the space on your bumper and plenty of room, you can actually add an addition to the middle that gives you more space in the cargo carrier, and it's built so that you can add as many of those as you want. So, the cargo carrier itself could go from this end of the bumper to that end of the bumper, just don't exceed the side of your RV or fifth wheel. But it could fill up the whole bumper, that way you can get most of your stuff out here and on this. Just be mindful of how much your bumper can actually hold. That does it for our look at the etrailer RV Cargo Carrier. Hope this helped.
