Video Transcript for Carr Trailer Hitch Mounted Step Review

Adam: Hi everyone, Adam with Today We're going to be taking a look at the Car hitch mounted step. These do come in many different variety of colors. As you see here, we do have black, it does come in a reflector red, or reflector white. There is an American flag one, which is definitely my pick, but we have plenty of other different types of logos, so go on and check them out. So our color or logo is going to be visible when it's flipped up like so, but we can flip this down, and it is going to have a very grippy surface, and it is made of steel with a nice powder coated finish, so it's going to last a long time, always look good, and it will get you that 650 pounds of weight capacity.So what I've noticed with owning a pickup, a lot of the times, it's kind of awkward to get up into our tailgate.

It's hard on our knees, our back, and our hands. I do see this being a lot easier as you can just basically step on the step, and get into your be like so. It's going to be easier on you and just make you be able to do whatever you need to do a lot easier. So this is going to work really well with our SUV's, even if we have a spare tire here, we can step on the step, and we can go ahead and load and unload our roof rack a lot easier.So the step is going to take care of your truck as well. Instead of using the bumper and scratching all this plastic, it is going to provide a lot more grip as well.

This plastic very, very smooth, and it's going to scratch a little bit more often than our steel down here. On top of that, if you have a pretty license plate, you're not going to have to worry about scratching it up whenever you have any sort of work boots on or anything like that. So yes, this is a rather smaller step than some of the other options we carry at, but it definitely has a more lower profile looks good, and even when it's out, or folded up, it's going to give you a lot more unintrusive look.So when comparing this fold-up step to the larger mega step, that car offers, it is going to have about 150 pounds more weight capacity, but we are going to lose a lot of surface area. In this instance, we are only going to have about five inches long by two and a half inches wide, and it is going to stick out from our hitch receiver about five inches. And when we fold this up, it is only going to stick out about two inches.

So the step does not come with a pin and clip. I just have a basic one right here, but it is a rather attractive step. So if you don't want it to run off whenever you're in the store or whatever it may be, you can grab a locking hitch pin here at One thing to note, be sure to check what size hitch you have. This will be available for only the two-inch hitch receivers.So whether you're using this on a pickup truck, or even just a taller SUV to load some of your stuff onto your cargo carrier, regardless of what it is, it's definitely going to get the job done all while making your ride look a little bit cooler.

Again, this was the car fold up step, and I'm Adam from

Carr Hitch Mounted Step for 2" Trailer Hitches - Black Powder Coat Aluminum - Reflective Finish - CARR183012

The CARR hitch step was exactly as advertised. It fits into the hitch with very little play and will allow me to get to the ladder and on to the top of of my RV. The CARR step is very well made and should last a good long time. I decided on the reflective design to show when the step is closed. I'm hoping it isn't too bright for someone behind me with headlights on. If I had to do it over, I would choose one of CARR's designs instead. One more thing, was a great decision for my shopping. The order was shipped and delivered in a very timely fashion. I would give a five star!


Have red type step on my other truck got tired of moving.


Overall, the Carr Hitch Mounted Step functions adequately. However, when you look the reflective part straight on, there's an odd indentation very near the upper left corner. I noticed this in it's blister package. For what it's worth, the Bulldog Lifelong Trailer Hitch Lock, had some scratches and blemishes on it too! I can't help but wonder if both of these items were previously merchandise returns. They both function fine, but they arrived with that "USED" appearance. Not too happy considering they were purchased for a new vehicle.


Great communication from etrailer regarding my order. They shipped on time & was very reasonably priced. Once received, works better than I expected - it is a very strong and well manufactured hitch mount step.


Bumper step is well made and well priced. It was shipped promptly. I changed my order before shipping and found the staff at etrailer very helpful, friendly and accommodating. I will buy again from etrailer and recommend them to my friends.


They did not have my part in stock, they contacted me about when they would have it. I choose one that was in stock. I believe that they try hard to satisfy their customers.

Great it really helps getting in the back of my truck
Tommy J - 11/26/2016


Very well made. It is attractive and functional. I now can climb into the back of my Tahoe without using a stool. I will enjoy using it.


Appears sturdy with good finish. Is lighter than I thought it would be. Works as advertised though the step is on the small side.

    We have National Guard hitch covers but none that are state-specific. We have # CARR183232 which is black powder coated aluminum. This one is actually a step that flips down, like # CARR183012, but with the National Guard logo on it.

    The Carr Hitch Mounted Step you referenced, part # CARR183012, weighs just under 2-lbs apiece. Thanks to the aluminum construction, this Carr step naturally provides light weight and corrosion-resistance. It fits 2-inch hitches. It can be locked to your 2-inch hitch using a lock such as # 1480DAT from Master Lock.

  • Recommended Plain Hitch Cover in Black Metal
    We don't have just a plain black metal cover. I recommend the Chrome # F-10P and using some sand paper and black spray paint if you really want black metal or using the Carr Hitch Mounted Step for 2" Trailer Hitches - Black Powder Coat Aluminum - Reflective Finish # CARR183012.

  • Rear Mounted Truck Bed Step for 2005 Nissan Titan
    Bestop doesn't make a Trek Step that's compatible with the Nissan Titan, but there are some options available. If your Titan is equipped with a 2 inch receiver, there are plenty of hitch mounted steps available. Some, like the Pilot # CR-600 or the Carr # CARR183012 would be used with the tailgate closed. Other choices, like the Heininger # HE4045 is extendable so it can be used with the tailgate open. There are many more hitch bed step options available, which you can see by clicking...
