32x48 Reese Solo Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 400 lbs - PS1040100

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (177 Customer Reviews)

Haul extra-wide cargo like scooters, lawnmowers, and big coolers. Large platform has integrated tie-down points, and rise shank improves ground clearance. Optional light kit and ramp sold separately. Pin and clip included.


I only gave an average rating because the carrier was not easy to assemble without slight modification. The bolt holes for assembly were blocked by the steel mesh. I cut the mesh that covered several of the holes with a rotary disc cutter.

I will share this information with the manufacturer as this is an unusual case.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/04/2022


Does what I expected.2010 FJ Cruiser. Assemble was very easy. The problem with past posts of getting the bolts to pass thru the wire mesh has been fixed as well as the reflective tape. Great job on delivery. I will use this cargo carrier for travel and when out surf fishing. The wagon I have will just fit on this carrier and make getting to the beach and back a cleaner experience.


Easy to assemble and appears to be well made. The predrilled holes to mount the lights were nice, but their location caused the lights to hit the bolts used for assembly of the cargo carrier. Tightening the lights would have broken the lights. I got around this problem by using extra nuts to shim the lights out a bit.


It’s a solidly built product, and exactly what I wanted. In hindsight though, a platform like this really needs to have the weight balanced, which isn’t easy for me with a large object like an offset smoker. Still though… it held up fine. Would recommend.


The product looks alright but was clearly sent a restock. The box was heavily damaged and taped together, the instruction manual was wadded up and stuffed back in an open bag, all the nuts and bolts were stuck in the mesh wire (which had a bent spot) for storage as opposed to separate packaging and was missing one nut and bolt. I'll update review once I go get the rest of the pieces to put finish installing.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

1 Year followup review. product overall is excellent. Due to its size it is a little heavy. The flooring is a little lightweight- don't plan on stepping on it if you are 200# as it will flex. Great size for full-size snowblower or other larger items. Seems to take 300# without a problem. I flipped the tongue piece over to lower the unit and make getting snowblower up easier.

Excellent. Works great. Have had large loads up to 300# without incident. I have recommended this item to several others most who have purchased... and only accolades from those who have purchased.

With trailer prices up this is a great rack for the money


Product is exactly as expected, very good quality, easy to assemble and serves the purpose I bought it for.
I simply used a device to prevent rattling and it works great.
I can also still open the trunk on a Atlas with some cargo on it which makes things very convenient.
I would recommend w/o any hesitation.




Excellent service! I ordered a cargo carrier several months ago but the manufacturer caused a huge delay in shipment. eTrailer kept me informed all the way and when they finally received the carrier, shipped it to me IMMEDIATELY. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!


Great product!!!! Came 3 days early. Super easy to assemble/install.


Solid product, easy to assemble, fast s hipping!


Easy to put on and remove and allowed for us to have plenty of space in the car for the family. No complaints from the kids!!


Good product


First class quality product and fantastic people to do business with! Thank You.


After some searching this was the answer to our need. I did some modifications to accommodate our 2 folding tadpole trikes and the total weight of the trikes and rack is still more than 50 lb's below the listed capacity. We have driven in 4 states with no problem.




Exactly as represented. Fast delivery. Very sturdy construction.


Etrailer had the best price, free shipping, and it arrived faster than they estimated!


This item was manufactured very badly. I cannot assemble it there are so many manufacturing defects. There are six holes where carriage bolts are supposed to be inserted. All but one are covered or encroached on by the steel grate that is the floor of the basket. This prevents the carriage bolts from being inserted far enough to keep them from rotating. Furthermore, carriage bolts are supposed to have a square segment right under the hear of the bolt. This is intended to fit into a square hole and keep it from rotating. The carriage bolts that came with this are chamfered under the head, so much so there is nothing to keep them from turning even if the holes were not covered.
This item is so big and heavy it will likely cost too much to ship it back.


I purchased this product to transport my fish house. It works great! Customer service was excellent with speedy shipping. I highly recommend this product and


Have had for a year. I haul a 30” Toro mower with trimmer, blower and gas on this beast on my 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Awesome.


Box came ALL torn up and opened. Hope everything is still inside.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/06/2022


Bought this to carry a grill on the back of our camper. It worked well. The only issue was the wire mesh bent from the leg of the grill. I put some thick kind of hard foam under the legs and it did just fine.


Sturdy and easy to put together

  • How to Measure to See if Pro Series Cargo Carrier Will Clear Spare Tire on a 2016 Jeep Wrangler
    To determine if the Pro Series cargo carrier # PS1040100 for 2 inch trailer hitches will fit your 2016 Jeep Wrangler and clear the spare you can take a measurement on the vehicle. Measure from the center of the pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare tire. If that distance is less than 12 inches then the carrier will clear the spare. Anything over 12 inches and it will start to hang over the carrier. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

  • Can the Shank of Pro Series Cargo Carrier PS1040100 be Flipped to Lower the Platform
    I checked with the manufacturer and they told me that the hitch shank on the Pro Series Solo Cargo Carrier # PS1040100, can be flipped either way to help with clearance when opening the cargo area door on your vehicle. So what you can do is flip the shank in the orientation that lowers the platform of the carrier a few inches as opposed to in the up position which would raise it.

  • Can I Flip the Shank on the Pro Series Solo Cargo Carrier to Change the Carrier Base Height
    I check with the manufacturer and they told me that yes the hitch shank on the Pro Series Solo Cargo Carrier # PS1040100, can be flipped either way to help with clearance when opening the cargo area door on your 2003 Ford Explorer. You will just need to remember that once flipped, you will be decreasing the clearance between the cargo carrier base and the ground. You will have to be careful when driving in areas were clearance my be an issue.

  • Using Hitch Receiver Adapter to Carry Snow Blower on Ford Edge with OEM 1-1/4 Hitch
    It is indeed possible to use an adapter so that a cargo carrier for a 2 inch receiver can be used in a 1-1/4 inch receiver, however we recommend avoiding using an adapter if at all possible. Using the adapter adds more distance between the hitch mounted accessory and the face of the receiver. This distance increases the leverage applied to the receiver tube, and the points where the hitch attaches to the vehicle. If this leverage becomes extreme, damage can occur. Because of this, the...

  • Will Pro Series Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Block Rear Door from Opening on a 2011 Toyota RAV4
    What you will need to do is measure from the top of the trailer hitch receiver opening 7 inches. This is approximately where the top of the Pro Series Cargo Carrier, # PS1040100, will be once installed. Then open the rear door on your RAV4 to see if the path of the door would interfere with the carrier.

  • Will the Pro Series Cargo Carrier # PS1040100 work in the 2 Inch Hitch on a Jeep 2010 Patriot
    The Pro Series Hitch Cargo Carrier, item # PS1040100, should fit nicely in the 2 inch hitch on your 2010 Jeep Patriot. The shank on the carrier measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the raised side of the platform and raises 4 inches for clearance at the rear of the carrier, for going through dips and entering steep drives. The receiver on your patriot sits below the molded letters in the rear fascia which is well below 4 inches below the door opening, so you would...

  • Will a Pro Series Steel Cargo Carrier # PS1040100 Work on a 2002 Toyota Highlander with 2 inch Hitch
    Yes, the 32x48 Pro Series Solo Steel Cargo Carrier for 2 inch Hitches, item # PS1040100, will work on your 2002 Toyota Highlander with a 2 hitch receiver. You will need to check the vehicle and hitch tongue weight capacities and stay below that lowest rated items capacity with the weight of the cargo carrier added to the weight of the items to be placed on it.

    As long as you keep the total weight of the carrier and all of its contents below the tongue weight capacity rating of the lowest rated item, carrier, hitch or vehicle, the Pro Series Solo Steel Cargo Carrier, # PS1040100, can be used in any 2 inch receiver hitch.

  • Shank Clearance of Pro Series Solo Cargo Carrier # PS1040100

  • Best Cargo Carrier for Generator on an RV
    I would love to help but finding a cargo carrier with everything you need is going to be an extremely difficult task. The main issue is going to be size/weight. Most cargo carriers that can accommodate the 27.6" depth of your generator are not going to be under 50 lbs. Also, only cargo carriers with a fixed shank can be used on the back of an RV due to the added stress. Therefore, the only cargo carrier we offer that will allow you to carry the Honda EU7000iS Inverter Generator on the...

  • What Cargo Carrier and Light Kit do You Recommend with Dimensions of 48 x 27?
    For a great cargo carrier that includes your required dimensions of 48x27, I recommend the 30x50 Curt Cargo Carrier w/ 48" Ramp - 2" Hitches # C18112. The Curt comes with 50-1/4" long x 30-7/8" wide x 3-3/4" tall internal dimensions. The ramp is fully collapsible so that you can fold the carrier up against the rear for storage. As far as weight capacity, the carrier has a max capacity of 500 pounds. It is important to note that the length of the shank measures 7-1/4 inches from the center...

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2015 GMC Acadia
    For your 2015 GMC Acadia the recommended Curt hitch is the part # 13424. This hitch has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity so it would work well for carrying a deer on a cargo carrier. I attached an install video for this carrier for you to check out as well. The Pro Series Cargo Carrier part # PS1040100 would be a great option for a cargo carrier. I attached a review video that shows this carrier being demoed in a 2015 Acadia just like yours.

  • Using Cargo Carrier with Hitch Adapter on 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander
    The Pro Series Steel Cargo Carrier you referenced, part # PS1040100 can be used with a 2 inch receiver, but an adapter like part # HTAD must be used. Because using an adapter places the load further away from the hitch receiver, your hitch tongue weight capacity will be reduced by 50 percent when using the adapter. If the tongue weight capacity of your Class II receiver is 300 lbs, it will be reduced to 150 lbs when using the cargo carrier with the hitch adapter. This means that the cargo...

Another option would be the part # 6502 as it has 3 inch sides, and it's distance from the pin hole to platform is 13 inches when folded down, so this may be your best option.

    I'd recommend using the Draw-Tite # 6504 Cargo Carrier Light Kit which you'd mount to the face of the rear edge of the # PS1040100 carrier. The driver's side lamp even features a license plate bracket that's illuminated which would allow you to easily relocate the plate in case what you have loaded on the carrier blocks the vehicle's license plate.
