Review of the Surco Products Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2010 Ford Fusion


Today on our 2010 Ford Fusion, we're going to be doing a test fit on the 20 by 48 Surco cargo carrier for 1 1/4-inch hitches, part number 52017. On this cargo carrier, it features a nice steel mesh floor which is going to allow any dirt or debris to fall through so it's going to help you keep this clean much easier. Around the edges here, it's got this nice thick frame which allows you to put tie downs just about anywhere. It's got a nice black powder coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion. It's also got these crossbars here just for a little bit of extra added support which helps give it that 300-pound weight capacity. But on this particular vehicle, it's got a class 1 hitch with a 200-pound ton weight rating so you'll definitely want to keep that in mind when loading it up. The ground clearance here at the back of this one is right about 11 inches.

This one does not a raised shank. The shank comes straight out. The height of this with the dual exhaust on this vehicle, you want to be careful because if you put heat sensitive materials on either side, they may be compromised by the heat of the exhaust coming out. Also up here, another thing you may notice is this looks like it's incredibly close to the vehicle which it is quite close. It's actually about 1/4 inch away.

But if I give this a good shake, it does not make contact. This one does not come with a hitch pint or clip. Those are sold separately. You can pick one up on our site, part number PC3. That's going to complete our test fit of the 20 by 48 Surco cargo carrier for 1 1/4-inch hitches, part number 52017 on our 2010 Ford Fusion. Here it is 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. Next, we're at the alternating speed bumps which we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Finally, we have the full speed bumps where we'll see the up and down action which is just like driving out of a parking lot, garage or driveway..
