Review of the Stromberg Carlson Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2012 Nissan NV 3500

Today on our 2012 Nissan NV3500, we've got out the 23 by 60 Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier. We're going to do a test fit on it. This carrier is going to support up to 500 pounds. It's been designed for use on 2-inch hitches. The part number on it is CC-100. You can see the floor is constructed of a nice large expanded steel type of covering.

It's going to give us plenty of room for moisture, dirt, and debris and things like that to fall down and out. It's also got a raised edge that goes all the way around the outside here. It's going to be about 3 inches off of our platform, so that's going to give us some front to back and side to side stability. It's also going to offer some nice attachment points, so once everything's on there, we can get it secure. Ground clearance from the carrier is going to be about 14 and a half inches to the bottom of the bolt there. Overall, we're going to add about 28 and a quarter inches to the rear of the vehicle.

At its closest point before it'd make contact, it looks like we're going to have about 4 and a quarter inches there. Great thing about the carrier, even with the big van doors, we're going to be able to get it fully open, get stuff in and out of there that we might want. Also, the exhaust setup here is going to be a passenger side outlet that comes out here, so we're really in no danger, when we transport heat sensitive materials, of any discoloration or melting. You'll notice the cargo carrier has got a little bit of play to it. That's really common when they're secured with just a pin and a clip, so if you'd like a more stable platform, pick up one of our anti-rattle devices and it'll take care of that for you. Now that we've had a good look at the Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier, we've seen how it's going to fit on our 2012 Nissan NV3500, that's going to complete today's test fit. 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..
