Curt Cargo Carrier Overall Dimensions

Easily load up your gear with this Curt hitch-mounted, folding cargo carrier with a built-in ramp. This carrier is ideal for transporting heavy or bulky items with wheels - wheelchairs, scooters, luggage, coolers, lawnmowers, generators, and more. Raised side rails and 6 tie-down points help keep your cargo in place. And the included anti-rattle pin reduces play and vibration in the hitch connection for a smooth ride.

Ramp Positions

Curt Carrier Ramp Positions

The integrated ramp on this cargo carrier folds into multiple positions. Fully extend the ramp and angle it against the ground to easily load and unload your wheeled cargo. Fold the ramp in half and position it vertically to get full use of the carrier, or pivot it down to limit drag while still maintaining some free cargo space. Fold the ramp completely flat against the carrier for compact storage and easy access to the rear of your vehicle.

Curt Carrier Folding Shank

And when the carrier's not in use, the folding shank lets you stow it alongside the rear of your car.

Tie-Down Points

Curt Carrier Tie Down Anchor

Six integrated eye hooks provide attachment points for securing ropes, straps, or bungees to the carrier so you can keep your cargo safe and secure.

Durable, Lightweight Construction

This carrier's aluminum construction is rustproof and corrosion resistant. The lightweight frame makes it easier to install, remove, and maneuver than heavier, all-steel carriers. Steel pivot points and shank add strength and durability where needed to maintain a 500-lb weight capacity. The rugged, matte black finish provides additional protection against the elements.

Hitch cargo carrier with built-in, 48-1/8" long folding ramp lets you easily load and transport a wheelchair, lawnmower, and other wheeled gear. Folds up and out of the way when not in use. Lightweight aluminum construction is rustproof.


I bought this hitch carrier after owning a steel version for several years to transport a snow blower during the winter months in NH. That version rusted out in a few years and is a shell of itself. So far the aluminum carrier has held up very well. Noticeably better construction as well. Worth the extra money IMHO.


Assembled and installed in an hour. Excellent instructions. This is not a toy. It is heavy duty. Needed to get a 250 lb. 28-inch snow thrower 35 miles on the highway. With the ramp, job done with ease. See images.


The cargo carrier is well engineered and was easy to assemble. etrailer customer service is outstanding. They kept me informed from initial order to the delivery date. Highly recommend etrailer.

The carrier is as advertised and the ramp is the reason I purchased it.

My product arrived in a box that was tore in a number of places and dented and scratched.

Customer Service will reach out to you.

Your hitch was the best for us. My wife uses it to haul a heavy Paleta cart for fund raising! Thank you!!


Works great! I use it to transport mowers for residential landscape maintenance. The ramp is a welcome feature. This carrier has held up to daily use.


Package was beat up upon arrival, nothing was damaged though. The ramp itself looks great and I like all the positions it can go in, perfect for my snowblower and mower. The only problems I had was the eye bolt on the right was too long so it blocked the ramp from folding up and in (easy fix with 2 washers placed on the outside of ramp). The second problem was a bit more problematic. When the ramp was folded flat on the inside of the carrier the latch did not align with the latch hole (I had to grind a bigger hole, which fixed it. If I didn't have a grinder I would've had to return it). All-in-all I think it's a decent product, the individual crossbars could be a bit more sturdy though. I would definitely not put anymore than 400 lbs on it.

Cross bars definitely need to be stronger. If I ratchet down anything snug the crossbars will bend. The rubber ramp holder has broke in just a year. I added working lights to the back for more safety my car is black like the ramp and I dont trust the reflectors much at night. Overall I still like, just the crossbars need to be thicker or reinforced somehow.
Nathan - 11/09/2020


Easy to assemble easy to install. One hint get a small furniture dolly to move it around with. Works great and easy.


Pros and cons with this cargo carrier, but the cons outweigh the pros.

PRO: good size for a wheelchair. Room to get to the rear doors when the carrier is down. Carrier folds up.

CON: too few anchors for tying down cargo (*way* too few). The pin that holds the carrier in place upright against the back gets harder and harder to put in. Carry something metal on it and it can cut into the carrier (like a 2 wheeler). Black surface chips easily. wobbly. The ramp when folded upright can unlatch easily and open up while driving (like if you hit a pothole; we added bungees to keep it in place). Steep ramp. Folded up it blocks the licence plate from view.


Short version: Best thing since sliced bread.

version: This thing was designed by somebody that knew what they were doing. The instructions were clear, accurate, and easy to follow. Pictures showed appropriate detail. Assembly was easy. Materials are sturdy and of high quality.
I purchased this to carry a generator on the back of my RV. But I also wanted to be able to use it on my F150 to carry whatever. I didn't want to have to lift a 100 pound generator, or anything else, as I have back issues. I also didn't want the carrier to be excessively heavy. Being able to fold it up when not in use was also a necessity. This carrier does it all.
Once assembled, I installed it on my F150 and put it into all possible positions. It was extremely easy to mount and moved easily from one position to another. It is so cool to have the ramp to load things on to the carrier. This is my first purchase from this manufacturer, Curt, and supplier, eTrailer. It arroved promptly and in good condition. I will be putting both of these companies on the top of my list for future purchases.


Speedy delivery have an open the box but seems OK


Very convenient to use. Performing just as advertised


Build very well, very happy with it.

Hitch work well, I recently sold that vehicle and purchased another hitch from you to go on my newer vehicle.
Larry - 08/09/2021


Great product..well made..package was a little beat up that seems to have left a small dent in the tubing nothing very noticeable. I have dealt with etrailer before and everytime I am not disappointed..


Weve had this cargo carrier for a year now, and its been working well. It does a great job of hauling our 28 Ariens Deluxe Snowblower around. The only complaints I have are that the steel parts that rub when going between the up and down position are starting to rust because the paint has come off. The pin is also hard to align sometimes when we switch between having it flipped up and laid down. You can eventually get it through, it just takes some jiggling.

Review from a similar Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier

This carrier was super easy to assemble. It is a bit heavy but I was able to mount it onto my hitch alone. I’m using an anti-rattle lock and they work great together.

No issues after a year of use. We used it maybe four times last summer for our trips to the lake. Haven’t noticed any rattling or loosening of boltswelds.

Review from a similar Folding Hitch Cargo Carrier in Hitch Cargo Carrier

I was looking for a cargo carrier I could use to carry a few items on a longer road trip. I wanted one that would allow the back doors to open on a Nissan NV200 (when the carrier is unloaded). This one has enough clearance to allow the doors to open when you don't have gear on it. I was seeking aluminum for lighter weight. I like the design which has an aluminum tray but steel brackets.

  • Cargo Carrier With Ramp That Will Not Sag Or Bend When Carrying Heavy Wheelchair
    I do see a couple reviews stating the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 60" Long Ramp 500lbs had some sagging when loading cargo just under 500lbs. If the carrier were to fail while using it properly and not exceeding the weight limit, this would be covered under the 90-day warranty. That said, I do recommend looking into the 30x50 Curt Cargo Carrier w/ 48" Ramp 500lbs # C18112. This carrier has the same 30" by 50" dimensions and also has a ramp and 500lb weigh capacity.

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Fit when Folded Up on a 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan
    On the Curt trailer hitch mount cargo carrier, # C18112, the distance from center of hitch pin hole to closest edge of carrier in the upright folded position is 7-1/4 inches. You will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that distance is less than 7-1/4 inches then the carrier will fit when folded up. On trailer hitches we have installed on a 2011 Tiguan we have found...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendations for 2011 Honda Pilot
    In many cases, the7-1/4 inch folded clearance is plenty, but you will need to measure on your vehicle to make sure. Measure from the hitch pin hole in less than 7-1/4 inches, the # C18112 will have plenty of clearance for your vehicle. The OEM hitch on the Pilot is pretty close to the edge of the bumper. You will first need to determine the tongue weight capacity of your hitch. This information should be printed on a sticker placed on the hitch. The 63 lb weight of the carrier plus the...

  • How Does the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18112 Hold Up In Cold Weather
    The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18112 that you referenced is made of aluminum so it actually would hold up great in cold weather because aluminum does not corrode like steel. And typically cold weather means salt on the road which corrodes steel quickly. As long as your snowblower can fit in the dimensions of the carrier and does not weight more than the capacity of the carrier and the hitch of your vehicle this should work very well for you. The inside dimensions of the carrier are 50-1/4"...

The inside dimensions (with ramp folded vertically) are 50-1/4" long x 30-7/8" wide x 3-3/4" tall which is large enough for a 24 inch wide snowblower tunnel.

  • Will the Curt Cargo Carrier #C18112 Fit on a 2011 Honda Pilot Without Hatch Interference
    I do not think you will have any interference problems with the rear hatch of your 2011 Honda Pilot and the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18112, other than the ramp. We have not had the chance to test this Curt carrier on a Pilot before, but to be sure, we can do some measuring. Starting at the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch, measure rearward 8-1/2 inches. At that distance, the side walls of this carrier will extend upward about 6 inches from the top of the trailer hitch...

    Because a cargo carrier is not a vehicle specific item, we do not have it listed in our fitguide, which will explain why you did not find it when you ran your vehicle. When we installed a hitch on a 2008 CX-9, we found that the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the rear bumper was between 4-3/4 and 5 inches. Since the Curt Cargo Carrier you referenced provides 7-1/4 inches of clearance when folded and 18 inches when not folded, it will fit your CX-9 just...

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier with Ramp to Clear Spare of 2016 Jeep Wrangler
    For a cargo carrier that would clear the spare of your 2016 Jeep Wrangler the Curt Carrier part # C18112 would be your best option. This carrier has a distance of 18 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest rail of the carrier. Most Wranglers have around 12 inches from the center of their hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the spare if the spare is the stock size. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier with Ramp to Carry 430 lb Wheelchair
    The hitch cargo carrier part # C18112 has a 500 lb capacity and a ramp that is 48 inches long so it would work well in both those regards. Your 2007 Toyota Tundra would need to have a hitch installed on it that has a tongue weight capacity of at least 500 pounds which would be high enough for the weight of the wheelchair and the weight of the carrier. Which this carrier weighs 63 pounds. So the 430 plus the 63 would definitely work on this if your hitch and vehicle would allow it.

  • Recommended Ramped Hitch Cargo Carrier for Transporting Generator on Jeep Wrangler
    We do offer a range of ramp-equipped platform type hitch-mount cargo carriers that can work for your generator.

The Jeep itself also needs to be rated for this combined tongue weight, which will approach 400-lbs.

  • Folding Cargo Carrier Recommendation
    The 30X50 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18112 and it is a folding carrier. This means it will fold up when not in use and you will not need an additional adapter to do this. You will have to make sure that you have enough clearance so that it does not hit the back of your bumper when folded. When folded, the # C18112 needs more than 7-1/4" from the center of the hitch-pin hole to the back of your bumper.

  • Measuring Clearance On 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon For Carrying Curt 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier
    You can take the measurement from the bottom of your hitch to the ground to see how much clearance you have. Since different suspension and tires can change the height of the vehicle, measuring will take the guesswork out of the process. The Curt 30x50 Hitch cargo Carrier with ramp, part # C18112 has a slight rise in the shank so that will help some and you should have plenty of clearance from the ground behind your Outback. This carrier measures 30 x 50 inches and has a 48 inch loading ramp.

  • Would the Curt Cargo Carrier C18112 fit a 2006 Ford E-450 Truck
    As long as you have a trailer hitch with a 2 inch opening at the rear of your Ford E-450 the Curt cargo carrier with ramp part # C18112 is going to attach to the vehicle. However with the 48 inch ramp, there is a concern about the height of the truck causing the slope of the 48" ramp to be too steep. I would suggest a drop hitch to lower the carrier enough to make the slope more reasonable. You will need to do some measuring of your truck to determine what will work for you.

None of them are particularly difficult but they do all require tools to remove the ramps such as box end wrenches or crescent wrenches.
