arrived on time. assembled the cage looks and fits good will take pictures next week


The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier arrived quickly and functioned as advertised. Just what I needed for a week-long cross-country roadtrip. However, after driving through rain on a few different days, the carrier began to rust and is now rusted in multiple locations around the carrier.


Wow is all I have to say! Called customer service and was answered immediately which with other companies has not been the case, the representative I talked to was extremely kind and helpful which again has not been the case with me and other companies. Having fixed one minor mistake I made, e trailer made my experience seamless and easy and I now have peace in my car with a place to put all my miscellaneous items!! Again fantastic customer service I would order from them every time I need something for my car, thank you etrailer!!


Honestly it's a nice idea but the cage wire is so thin I could cut it with a pair of wire cutters and I strongly recommend welding the box to the hitch extension after assembly so it doesn't get stolen. Great customer support and shipped on time.


I bought this rack to carry my generator when I'm boondocking with my travel trailer. It also carries my 5-gallon gas can and my 5-gallon diesel can. I like that it can be locked completely closed - it keeps my generator from wandering off unattended.


The top cage came packaged separately which isn’t a huge feel but it was a bit bent and banged up making it a little difficult to attach. I would have asked for a replacement but we were heading out on a trip and couldn’t wait.

I apologize that your product arrived a bit bent. Customer Service will be reaching out to you.


I gave 5 stars for there product support and getting the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier #M2200-2201 to me in time for our trip despite the bad weather across the Country and 5 Stars to Carpod for a great product that was easy to assemble and mount on my trailer. It easily held all needed it for.


This my the second Carrier. I backed my first one into a pole and "TACO'd" it. I wouldn't have bought the second if it wasn't such a necessary option for my RV
Good quality!

Nunya B.


Just completed 5000 mile trip up the East coast and home. You know how bad those roads are! Holding up just fine!


Excellent service and fast delivery! Also, everything is in perfect condition which is always great when ordering on line!


POD is exactly as ordered and is perfect for its intended use.



Held up great during a 10,000 mile road trip.


Love it! Easy to set up and was using it within 30 mins!


We love it. Everything works great and as advertised. Thanks for a great product.




Just what I needed fast shipping I highly recommend





After purchasing a 2018 Honda CR-V Touring, my honey-to-do-task of having to bring trash to the dump every week must be done. I am not a big fan of placing trash inside my new car, despite having a rubber liner. So I purchased the Curt 2 inch receiver hitch and had it installed by my local mechanic. I did not want to have to hook up my small utility trailer to go to the dump since I have to go to work and park in a parking garage after making my trash drop off. I came across this Carpod M2205 walled carrier. I am thrilled with this and like the way it folds up when not in use. There was a simple assembly process to go through after it was received (quick shipping by the way). It is a little heavy placing into the hitch receiver, but note it is easier to place it into the hitch when folded up. I wrapped a piece of duct tape around the exact place of the insertion bar to line up the holes of the hitch pin. Its carrying capacity is well within what I need, and I am quite impressed. There is not much movement of the carrier while driving except for big bumps or potholes. This is an excellent alternative to carrying household garbage inside my new car. The walls are held in place with metal pins and a strap, that is a little short and could be a little bit longer. That would be my only complaint about using this car carrier. Otherwise, I highly recommend this for anyone who needs to carry items outside or to need more space.


I purchased this for a 800-mile round trip vacation to Mammoth Lakes. It greatly extended the amount of luggage and gear we could bring with us, as we head 4 adults and a dog in the car. I could hardly tell the cargo carrier was back there while driving, and it didn't impact my gas mileage at all. I assembled and installed this myself, and it was super easy (although would be easier with a second set of hands.) I also purchased a stretchy net cargo cover, which allowed us to pack above the the actual height of the carrier itself. I attached my license plate to the cargo carrier work zip ties, although I will need to get a bracket with lights for the future of doing nighttime driving. I have no regrets on this purchase and highly recommend!


packing box arrived damaged. content slightly damaged, contacted etrailers and no joke,received reply within minutes. settled for a reduced price, (my choice] great product and exceptional customer service. would recommend this provider and product anytime!


I bought 23x27 CARPOD walled cargo carrier w/lid (M2205-2201) on 3/30/22, received 4/8/22, it is now 9/6/22. I bought it with cargo bag (items #CS34FR), which I have used two. I have used the cargo bag twice, not worth it for me, cargo bag takes too much space. Instead I wrap items in a tarp. Pretty sure you can figure it out how to make items “water resistant” with tarp, after all the Cargo Bag is also “water resistant”.

I also bought the Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span (Item #63232), work great with carpod, it doesn’t rattle.

As for the Carpod itself, I love it. I use it about 4 times a month. The clearance is good, I have only hit ground once and that was because that specific exit driveway had a deep swale to it. As shown in picture, I use Carpod on Lexus 2020 RX350L, the rear hatch door clears fine on opening and closing. The only complain is when I go reverse, the rearview camera is blocked AND I have to disable the vehicles rear collision warning system.


I've owned the cargo carrier for 1 year now. I put it on the back of my Subaru Forester and I haven't taken it off yet. It's so useful for so many things, vacations, delivering big packages and taking items to the landfill it was a good purchase for me


Very Good product that fit our needs well for extra carrying space for 5 day road trip with 5 people in Subaru Outback. Wanted something in addition to our cartop carrier that we could lock up gear in as we left car parked for several hours as we explored the coast and Redwoods. Stored a 52 qt cooler, Coleman collapsible 2-burner propane stove, milk crate, similarly sized-plastic bin of odds and ends, 3 camp chairs, large sun shade, blue tarp. All fit with bag closed and top on (used 3 same keyed locks with long U shackles (think 2 inch). Worked great and could barely see it in rearview mirror (had to really look for it) and could not hear it when travelling ( Did use antirattle plate, and hitch lock) . With gear did not feel it alter driving feel at all. Fit 2 inch hitch well and allowed rear gate to open with a couple millimeters clearance to spare (Fantastic! didn't think we would be able to open gate). Fitted with lights, harness was easy and I opted to attach all with twist ties. Quickly made lic plate holder out of sheet metal and used a battery powered light to illuminate plate to stay legal at night. Added some reflective tape all around. Set up worked great and without any problems. No problem travelling with in either up (folded up, no gear) or down (gear stowed and top locked on) position. While at campsites used as counter top for light items and place to spread out wet towels. No problem with CarPod bag but did not have any real precip to test, kept dusty roads out though. The corner ties on bag are a bit short but no big deal. Thought I might build a frame to add rigidity but wasn’t really necessary for us. Overall good item.


I haven't used it yet, but the installation was smooth. The kit did not come with a locking pin to secure the rack to the van mount. Inconvenience aside, this could be a huge safety issue if someone took off without acquiring one.


The bag is NOT waterproof…just be aware.

purchased several items from and have always been pleased (Thule Rooftop Carrier, hitch pins, anti-rattle device). Plus, the customer service is top notch. This set however was below expectations.
We took this on one trip up the East Coast (3 days up, 3 days back).

- The actual Cargo Carrier with Sidewalls is great. Sturdy and solid.
- The bag is absolutely NOT waterproof. It reads in the description “cargo bag keeps firewood, luggage, and other gear contained, secure, and DRY.” After driving through a few hours of rain, our luggage was soaked. I had the bag properly secured to the sidewalls, zipped and the zipper cover folded over properly. It did not keep out the rain. That night I put our luggage in the car to keep it from getting wetter while inside the hotel and left the empty bag properly zipped in the carrier. It rained and the next morning the bag had water pooled in the bottom.
- Also, the Carrier Lid is already showing 3 areas of rust after 6 total days on the road.

  • Will Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier with Lid Bounce Around and Hit Tow Vehicle When Folded Up
    Great question, Chuck! The 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier w/ Lid # M2205-2201 comes with a cinch strap to keep the walls and the lid secured to the carrier when it's in the stowed and folded up position. If you jump to the 1 minute mark in the linked video you'll see how our team member secures all of this with the strap. If you're talking about the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier w/ Lid # M2200-2201, this system is a fixed carrier so it can't be folded up against the tow vehicle....

  • Which Hitch Pin Hole Does J-Pin Style Anti Rattle Device Insert Through for Hitch
    With J-pin style hitch stabilizers like the discontinued part # 63201 they are designed to go through the hitch and shank with the larger hole and then the j portion comes around and locks into the smaller hole. It almost sounds like you are trying fit the pin lock through the smaller hole instead which wouldn't be possible. See picture I attached plus review video.

  • Differences Between Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-2201 and # M2205-2201
    There are a couple of primary differences between the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-2201 and the upgraded # M2205-2201. The first difference is that the Carpod # M2205-2201 features a hinged shank that allows you to fold up the carrier against the vehicle when it's not in use (see attached image). The # M2200-2201 has a fixed shank that cannot be moved. Another improvement on the # M2205-2201 is that it has an angled shank that provides 5-1/2 inches of additional ground clearance. Other...

  • How to Measure for Clearance on a 2010 Honda Pilot for Trailer Hitch Mounted Accessories
    When looking at trailer hitch mounted accessories for your 2010 Honda Pilot you will want to make sure that they have a long enough shank (the part that goes into the receiver) in order for the accessory to clear the rear of the vehicle. The measurement is taken from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance require to clear the rear of the vehicle. The easiest way to take this measurement is to use a yardstick or other tall, flat object and place it against the rear of the...

  • Can Items To Be Locked When Secured To the Reese Cargo Carrier Part # 63153
    There is not a height restriction for the Reese Cargo Carrier part # 63153 in regards to how tall you can stack items onto this so you will just need to use your best discretion. However, I don't really see a way to lock anything to this so if that is your goal then I have a better option for you, the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier part # M2200-2201 which has internal dimensions of 47" long x 23" wide x 21-7/8" tall and comes with a locking lid. There is also a bag that will fit inside of...

  • Can I Use A Hitch Extender For Added Clearance On A 2004 Coachman Concord Motorhome
    You certainly can use a hitch extender to gain the clearance you need. 8 inches is pretty far recessed behind the bumper, so an 8" extension like the # e88YR should do the trick if you want to use a carrier like the Carpod # M2200-2201. The only downside is that using an extension does effectively reduce your hitches tongue weight capacity by half. So you will be slightly limited in your carrying capacity. For a recessed hitch like yours though, this will be the only option.

  • Does the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier w/Lid Come with a Lockable Lid?
    Yes, the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier w/Lid # M2200-2201 comes with the Lockable Lid for Carpod Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier. With the lockable lid, you will be able to attach up to three padlocks to the lid. For the locks, I recommend the Master Lock Stainless Steel Padlock with Shielded Shackle - 3/8" Diameter # ML40D. I recommend the Master Lock Stainless Steel locks because it has a 4-pin cylinder that is pick-resistant. This will give you the security you need for your Carpod Walled...

  • Fit of Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02 on 2006 Chevy Suburban
    To determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, part # M2205-01-02 will fit your Suburban, you will need to take a quick measurement. Measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. If this distance is less than about 2 inches, then the carrier will fit. If not, you will not be able to slide the shank into the receiver far enough for the hitch pin holes to align. Carpod offers # M2200-2201 that offers a bit more clearance, if your distance...

    The Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2205, that you referenced will work with your 2011 Ford Edge and will not require the use of a hitch extension or adapter.

The Edge in the video is the non Sport model and has the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, # 75992, installed. Keep in mind, the hitch pin and clip are sold separately from the Carpod carriers.

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier For 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The reason you don't see any hitch-mounted cargo carriers for your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is because hitch cargo carriers are not vehicle-specific and will basically fit most any vehicle with a trailer hitch receiver. If you do not have a trailer hitch receiver on your Jeep yet then I recommend going with Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # DT78MR. This has the highest weight rating compared to other hitch receivers that fit your vehicle, rated...
