Review of the MaxxTow Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe


Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe, we're doing a test fit of the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier. This comes with a 60 inch long ramp and has a weight capacity of 500 pounds. That part number is MT70260. We're going to go over some features, take a few measurements, and go over some more features about this carrier. The first thing I want to show is are the different positions that it can be put in to. We're going to start down here, removing our pins and clips at our braces. We're just going to fold those up a little bit.

You want to make sure to hang onto those so you don't lose or damage them and then we're just going to lift up on our rack. We have this nice handle here, which is great. We're just going to lift on that wheelchair part, that ramp part. We'll move this brace out of the way. In this position, we want to align our holes here and take our pins and clips once again and place those into our holes.

This position's going to be great when you have your wheelchair, or scooter, or even your small lawn mower loaded up. You can secure them in place and you won't have to worry about too much movement. From this position we'll remove those clips again, still making sure we hang onto them, and we'll fold our rack down. From here we'll take our brace and put it into our farthest hole on our carrier. This is going to be any time that you don't have anything loaded up, you'll set it in this position. Get those secure.

Then we also want to take the clips down here and we've got pins and we'll insert those into our pins down here and that's going to prevent that ramp from moving up. You also want to make sure you insert those clips when it's in the standing position as well. Now that we're in this position we'll take a few measurements here. Overall is going to be our first one. We're going to have about 43 inches all together to our vehicle. Our ground clearance is going to be about 23 inches.

It looks like our closest point is going to be about 12 and a quarter inches. Our next position is going to be our fold up position which will be when you don't have anything on your carrier and you just want to park in a close quarters parking spot. We'll remove that middle pin and clip and we'll lift straight up on the rack making sure that we hang onto it the entire time so it doesn't fall forward and we'll replace our pin and clip. You may have to wiggle the carrier just a bit to get that in place. With that pin hole we'll replace our clip there. Now we're only adding about 10 and 3 quarter inches to our vehicle. Our ground clearance is now about 21 and a quarter inches. Our closest point looks to be about 2 and a half inches away. If we take a look down at our hitch itself, this is designed to work with 2 inch hitches and we also have a pin in clip in there that is included. Then we have this brace here. This is there to take a lot of the shake and play out of that carrier. It's not going to stabilize it completely but it will help to keep a lot of the movement out of your entire carrier. That's going to be our completed look at the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier part number MT70260 on our 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe. Here 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. 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. 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, garage, or driveway.
