On the one hand, now that its assembled, seems good. On the other hand, took about 30 minutes with an angle grinder to get it to go together. I dunno if it was a dud or something, but both the cross pieces (the vertical tubes that connect the upper and lower frames) had the tabs which bolt to the cross tubes welded too short. This prevented the parts from being assembled within tolerance. The tabs were welded at least 1/8" too short. I checked multiple orientations and combinations and couldn't get it to go. I ground the vertical tube about 1/8" shorter until everything fit together. I'm stubborn and have a lot of power tools, so I didn't return this, but otherwise I would have had to.


Comments
It sounds like the baskets are assembled upside down. If you take everything apart and flip the bottoms and reassemble this will fit as intended.

All in all a good cargo carrier. I'm happy that every single fastener used a nylon lock nut. I'm using the 1 1/4" hitch. The one thing If I was using a 2", I'd be disappointed by the plastic receiver adapter. Maybe it works fine, but I'd have my doubts.

The car is a Chevy Bolt EV, using the beefy and highly recommended Draw-Tite hitch. Don't bother with any other hitch, they bend or are insane to install.

My only issue is that, unsurprisingly, it rides low, and scrapes when I leave my driveway, and it's not even that bad a driveway. One nice thing with the electric is that there's no hot exhaust to melt your cargo!

The range / fuel economy hit is almost certainly better than a roof box, and it's way more accessible.


Comments
A year out - It went on a 2000 mile road trip and worked mostly fine. But when we came home I couldnt take the scraping, so I welded up a new center member and raised it up by about 5 inches. Made all the difference. It never scrapes and I did quite a bit of challenging dirt road without incident. I also noticed that by raising the rack up,my economy increased significantly. I would recommend this rack still, but it could use some redesign for lower vehicles.

Like others I had an issue lining up the 2 sides with the main beam. Had to run a drill bit through the holes to remove enough material to get bolt through. Otherwise it seems ok.


Comments
I reached out to Curt who advised to make sure that if the bottom platform base is installed upside down then the holes will not line up correctly. You will want to make sure that the bottom platform piece is flush with the top plate as shown on page 2 of the manual that is linked on the product page.

Took approx 20 min to assemble not very hard at all. Tools will be required. Sturdy/ looks good and plan to use it next month on a road trip. Took 6 days to ship even though it stayed in stock and ready to ship when ordered but I wasn’t in a rush so it’s all good!



by:

I have received my cargo rack and have it assembled and have it installed in the trailer receiver. As it had no assembly instructions with the package, I was grateful for the detailed photo on the outside of the box.. Perhaps instructions might be in order for more complicated items, but I'm sure the guys in shipping are psychic and know when it would be a waist of time to include something that would never be followed in the first place'
After assembly and installation I was pleased with how strong and solid it was. Good work on your part


Comments
Before assembly check all the bolts , washers and nuts with a magnet. Replace any with SS if they are magnetic as they will rust otherwise. The powder coat should be repainted also. The size of the basket is great and will serve you in keeping your car clean.

I was looking for a basket style hitch carrier that was not too big. Most carriers I saw were 60 inches long. This one is 48 inches and was just what I was looking for. I like everything about this carrier: the looks, style, size and weight. I will be using it to carry beach equipment during our summer vacations to the Outer Banks, NC. The assembly instruction page leaves alot to be desired as there is one picture trying to explain how to completely assemble the carrier. You can figure it out, but will take some time and multiple looks at the one diagram. It took me about 1.5 hours to assemble.

Some other facts for those of you looking for a hitch carrier to use on a Jeep Wrangler. I have a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited with the factory installed trailer towing package & 2 inch receiver. You have to use a hitch extender with this particular carrier in order to clear the rear mounted spare tire. The JK Wranglers need approx. 12 inches out from the center of the hitch pin hole. Also, you will not be able to fully open the tailgate as the tire will hit the carrier. If you went with a flat carrier (not the basket style of this Curt one), you most likely would be able to open the tailgate and clear a flat carrier. Troop, the customer service rep who assisted me with my order was fantastic.


Comments
I have a carrier similar to this one.. What I want to know is if anyone knows where I can get a hard sided container to fit in the carrier that can be locked to the carrier??
-- comment by: sassy - 11/30/2013

You can check out truck bed tool box manufacturers. There are some cargo carriers out there that have matching boxes, but this is not one of them. However, with the inside dimensions on the carrier, it can be pretty easy to find an aluminum or molded ABS plastic box that will fit. Part DZ6535P from DeeZee would fint inside this Curt carrier.

This basket is TOUGH! It holds a huge 6p tent, a 2p tent, a 60 pound deep cycle battery, a bag of tools, and an air mattress when we tent camp around the country. This basket has seen about 8,000 miles across 24 states. It's scraped the ground over 100 times and the bolts got tweaked. I sawed them off and replaced them with round headed bolts upside down so it will skid on the round head instead of the ground catching the threads and bending the bolts. I seriously cannot believe this basket is still intact! It's been through absolute hell and it's held up. It's due for a painting and she'll be like new. On my 2011 Yaris, it blocks the license plate so I could potentially be giving a bored cop a reason to pull me over. Sometimes I zip tie my license plate to the basket when I'm in a bigger city. At night, I use one of those 12 volt license plate lights and connect that to my battery in the basket. This was a great investment and I'm damn glad to have it.


Comments
The basket took a BEATING and it took it like a champ. I ended up selling it on [used item site] when I upgraded vehicles to a very happy customer.

This is a great product not to big and not to small. Seem to be very sturdy and strong, and it was very easy to put together. It doesn't stick out to far from the car either which is what I was hoping for. I also bought the same brand hitch to attach this to our 2015 highlander.


Comments
No issues still working great!

Purchased this rack for extra storage on our family's annual trip to the Outer Banks, NC. About a 600 mile trip, one way.
Assembly was straightforward and went fairly smoothly. First time doing anything like this, so I took my time and spent about an hour (maybe a little more) working on it. Included instructions were clear and easy to follow. Assembled rack was really sturdy and seemed quite strong. Our Honda CR-V has a 1.25" hitch, so I did not need the included adapter. At each overnight stop I double-checked all nuts and bolts for tightness. A couple needed tweaking, but nothing major. So we loaded the cargo carrier with two large Rubbermaid bins (side by side) and three folding sand chairs on top, two folding camp chairs along the front and a kite tote bag. (Included photo shows a test fit, not actual trip packing) I used two ratchet straps and a couple of bungee cords to secure everything down. This really freed up storage inside the two cars we take on the trip. Honestly noticed no difference in the handling of the car or gas mileage. I did add some additional auto reflective tape on the front and side "railings" of the carrier. I felt these made the rack a bit more visible on the interstate. No items on the carrier shifted at any point of our trip.
Overall, I am pleased with this carrier. Very positive experience with it from start to finish. I would definitely buy it again and would look at other Curt products in the future. Great product at a good price.



by:

I bought this for an 1800 mile trip. Late October 2021. Arrived super fast.

Positives:
- Survived the trip fine. I had maybe 50 lbs loaded on it.

- Hitch bar bent a little when a car backed into it in a parking lot at lunch stop, drive day 1. It sits low behind my Honda Accord and the other driver didn't see it. Stood up to rest of trip slightly bent, no problem. It's a solid unit.

- Screw-in hitch pin (included) eliminated vibration or wobble. Very solid. Threaded insert is welded into the tongue. There is also a regular sized hole in the tongue for a normal hitch pin. I checked the threaded insert welds for cracks on my trip. None.

Negatives:
- During assembly, the tongue bar sat almost 1/4 low due to the end brackets being notched too shallow. There was no way the four bolts that hold right/left sides of carrier base together would go through the central tongue bar which sits between the two sides. Solution required 50 minutes with an angle grinder and fluent cussing to cut the end brackets to size, to deepen the notch. I suspect they were designed to a different tongue bar size, or something else changed, because they were WAY off. Deepening a notch in 1/8 steel that is doubled and welded to 1/4 inch thick is a real pain. Each of two end brackets is 1/8" wall square tube, notched on two sides, welded double on one side to 1/4". So that is four notches that need to be deepened by about 3/16ths - 1/4" to get the tongue bar to sit high enough to bolt the carrier together. Not fun. But once done, the carrier was solid. Still, this is not a quality control issue, this is a bad DESIGN. The bracket fabrication machine needs to be retooled STAT. How do you say that in Chinese?

- Assembly instructions state to tighten bolts "80%" because you have to fit some things together during assembly that really should have not had any bolts in them. I ended up removing a bunch of bolts to get then thing together, then put them back in. Assembling it in this order would solve the problem: bottom rails, then top rails, intercostals last.

- Yes, I had it on my Honda Accord, so it sat low, and I mean low. It scraped when I pulled into parking lots. Maybe 6 inches off the pavement on flat ground. Plenty of scrapes in gas stations and lunch stops resulted in no real damage, just paint, cosmetic. Good news was it didn't obscure my license plate at all, even with a waterproof duffel a few inches above the top rail.


Comments
I sent your review over to the manufacturer for an opinion and a tech got back to me saying that it sounds like the bottom of the carrier is installed upside down as this would cause all of the issues you are experiencing.

Easy to put on and take off. Stable when driving, though I did use lots of extra heavy-duty rubber bungees to assist. Can stack a lot if you tie it down well. Saved me from having to buy a new car just for a once a year trip.



by:

I wanted a small trailer for my 1 1/4" hitch on my Prius V to fit two Rubbermaid Roughneck Trash Barrels for trips to the town Transfer Station. The 17.5" aprox depth of the basket of this trailer fits the bottom of the barrels just right. I judged that a 60" wide would not fit three barrels anyway and that might be too heavy a load, so the 47" x 17.5" inside dimension of this was best.

The attached photos show two barrels in the trailer.

Some have complained that the assembly instructions are lacking. Here are some tips:
The bottom platform pieces should be placed so that the tubing is flush at the central rails, the flat rails with 4 holes that bolt to the center 1 1/4" square tube are a bit wider than the square tubing that make up the bottom platform and the extra lip should point down so you have a nice flush platform in the bottom of the tray where you will be putting stuff. If you have those pieces upside down, you would have a little ridge sticking up on each side of the central square tube and that would not work well as well as the bottom of the tray, and the "T" connectors would not fit correctly.

Group the fasteners and you will have three bunches (manufacturer had the nut/bolt/washers assembled together in my shipment)

A) 18 small diameter bolts/nuts/washers - those are for the flat A shaped braces which hold the bottom platform halves to the top railing halves.
B) 8 medium diameter bolts/nuts/washers - those are for the fore and aft "T" connectors
C) 4 large diameter bolts/nuts/washers - those hold the left half and right half of the platform together.

Using the smallest bolts, fasten the "A" braces to the bottom platform halves, then bolt to the top platform halves, leave them loose with about 1/8" of play.

Now you have two half assemblies of the bottom tray.

Place the middle 1 1/4" square "hitch" piece between the two half assemblies and line them up but do not put the 4 big bolts in yet. Put the two "T" connectors at the back and hitch side. The "T" connector with the reflector goes at the back, and the reflector points toward traffic. The other one goes on the hitch side. Loosely bolt the "T" connectors using the 8 medium bolts and then fasten the two sides together snugly with the 4 big bolts. Then tighten all other fasteners.

A ratchet and metric sockets and an adjustable wrench to hold the nut while tightening the bolt head is much handier than two wrenches.

So happy with this cargo carrier so far. It was easy to assemble and looks great on the car.



by:

Great item! After ordering the first time,it wasnt delivered properly by ups, so i put a claim and shortly after etrailer sent me over a replacement quicker than before! Setbacks happen however etrailer has great service!



by:

When I got home I was grateful that the carrier was delivered. I began to open the box and put the unit together (great instructions) I then put the carrier on the bach of my 5th wheel RV and now my generator has a place to ride outside so we will not have to smell gasoline anymore. I would recommend this unit for another reason that being it does not cover tail light etc. It is shorter than a lot of units that I have seen . Thanks also to the services of the company etrailer as they made me feel as if I were their only customer.



by:

Required a light weight cargo carrier but was unsure of what model & make. Called Etrailer and friendly, helpful and knowledgable CSR Cathy T assisted me. Carrier is exactly what i require and arrived on time in new condition.



by:

Some difficulty with assembly. Rubber hammer neeeded to get holes aligned.



by:

The instructions are not very good. The carrier itself seems to be sturdy enough and should do the job fine. Putting it together, the two pieces that make up the base of it have a very slight almost indiscernible difference in height and you probably won't notice it until after you've put all the brackets on the wrong side of it and then try to assemble it at which point you can take those 12 bolts out and then put them back in the right way otherwise seems to be a pretty okay.



by:

Attached this thing to the 1-1/4 Inch hitch on a Mazda 5. Fit perfectly and was easier than I thought to put on and remove. Solidly built. Had a cargo bag stuffed with about 6 duffle bags strapped to this carrier, about 100lbs. Drove 9 hrs each way, no issues at all. No whistling, and didn't seem to affect the gas mileage either. I recommend this for anyone needing a little more space in their car.

FRANK A - 10/18/2021

The 20X48 Curt cargo carrier is very well made. I bought it because the etrailer.com video convinced me that with the use of the locking pin, loaded on my 1-1/4" hitch, the carrier would not do a lot of moving and shaking when traveling. The cargo carrier lives up to this claim however I do have one gripe: This carrier is not actually 20X48"; the interior dimension is really 17-1/2X46". I had previously bought an aluminum 20X60" carrier from my local Northern Tool but I returned it because I had to use a 2" hitch adapter and it made the cargo carrrier very unstable, however, the actual inside dimensions where as advertised: 20X60!


Comments
Thanks for the post - I also just assembled the aluminum 20X60 carrier from Northern Tool and found it very unstable with the 2-1.25 adapter. It also put it more than 12 from the bumper. Will be returning the carrier from Northern Tool and ordering this one.
-- comment by: Stephen - 09/06/2014

by:

This carrier was difficult to assemble the center joining pieces were not well aligned and the pieces that join the top tubes (red rectangle in the picture above) required hammering and a bench grinder to make them fit around the bottom tube, clearly poor manufacturing and quality control. After some corrections and a whole lot of elbow grease it seems like it will be a pretty sturdy carrier.



by:

This is a great quality carrier. Had one of the flat mesh bottom ones with little sides and found it limited. Needed something that I could use on my car or my truck and the adapter makes this happen. The instructions are a bit vague but it really takes no skill to assemble. All the holes lined up perfect with a little wiggle but it is important to put ALL the bolts in loose first THEN tighten it down. The only thing I would prefer changed would be the length of the bolts. They easily could be a half inch shorter. But that is purely a cosmetic thing. I also recommend the hitch riser if you have a car. You’ll never clear a steep driveway without it.

As such, the Curt 48 inch Cargo Carrier # C18145 will fit on your vehicle without blocking either of your exhaust pipes. To be on the safe side, I would recommend measuring the distance between the inside portion of your exhaust pipes. I have included installation details for the carrier. I am including a review video for this product for you to check out. Finally, while we don't have...

    For a cargo carrier that will work on Class I Draw Tite Hitch # 24816 you will need something that is Class I compatible. The Curt Carrier # C18145 is only designed for Class II hitches and up and would not work on your vehicle.

  • Will The Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier # C18145 Fit A 2008 Toyota 4Runner
    In a flat cargo carrier, the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier # C18145 is the only carrier I have that will fit both a 1-1/4 inch hitch and 2 inch hitch. It has a fixed flat shank that inserts into the receiver on your 2008 Toyota 4Runner and will allow the cargo carrier to be at the same height as the bottom of your receiver hitch on your vehicle. This will keep the carrier from blocking the view of the rear taillights. If you wanted more of a selection of cargo carriers to choose from, you could...

  • Weight Capacity of Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier # C-18145 When Used with Class I Receiver
    The Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C-18145 has an overall capacity of 500 lb,s but this capacity will be limited by the tongue weight capacity of your Class I hitch. A class I hitch typically has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs, which means that the carrier itself and whatever is placed on it cannot weigh more than 200 lbs. Your hitch should have a sticker on it that will list its tongue weight capacity. Please note that exceeding the tongue weight capacity of the hitch can result in...

  • Will CURT 20x48 Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Fit a 2010 or 2011 Lexus GX 460
    In order to determine if the CURT 20x48 Cargo Carrier, # C18145, will fit your Lexus GX 460, you will need to measure from the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If this distance is less than 6 inches, the carrier will clear the rear bumper. Based on what I see on the hitches available for the GX 460, the hitch is towards the rear of the vehicle enough to allow the carrier to easily clear the rear bumper. However, it is always the best idea to measure...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier that Allows Rear Door to Open Railing
    Check out the 17x46 Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18145. We installed this carrier on a 2009 Jeep Wrangler and determined that with the carrier installed the rear door was able to open. I attached a video that shows this. Fast forward to the 30 second mark to see the door open with the carrier installed. This cargo carrier has a 500 lb capacity. As far as a lower trailer hitch, that's not something we offer.
