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

Excellent product! Installed on my Ranch Hand bumper 2” receiver hitch. Makes it easy to check engine fluids.


Very good quality nice looking product. Just by the looks and feel of it you can tell this will last


Nice hitch step with a small profile. I do wish the holes were better placed for the Draw-tite hitch. It sticks out about 1inch more than it needs to in the receiver. Very secure to step on, non slip surface. It makes it easier to reach the car top.


Fast shipping & great quality. Would buy again!


Super cool. Fits perfectly. Fit and finish is outstanding. Makes reaching the roof rack and getting into the far reaches of the cargo bay a snap. Highly recommend.

Mike K.


After a year of almost daily use this hitch step has held up perfectly. The finish on it still looks new despite living near the ocean and and being exposed to sand and salt water. This step has served us well and will be purchasing one for our other Jeep. Thank you!


Thank you for your prompt response and excellent customer service. Hitch mounted step is exactly what I wanted and expected, along with Bulldog Lifelong Trailer Hitch Lock and Hopkins Sun Screens. These are certainly quality products, it was an excellent experience buying these products from, you delivered what you promised.


exactly what it claims to be step is a little bit small but serves the purpose high quality product worth the price . makes getting in to the bed of truck easier than the bumper steps 2016 Silverado also keeps hitch receiver clean and looks GREAT love it


Good quality, tho I had to drill the keeper hole in a different location to match my hitch. Not a big deal.


Looks great, works great. The step is very sturdy and the action of opening/ closing the step is perfectly stiff. It won’t flop down while you’re driving. It’s a fashionable and functional hitch for my Jeep. I can get up to the roof, into the back or even use it to get my golf shoes on and off.


Excellent purchase transaction. Delivery was on time and professionally packaged. I installed the trailer hitch option fit was exact and looks great on my 2016 Ram. Very high quality workmanship. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a hitch step!! LD


The trailer hitch fold down step for my 4 runner is great,
It covers up the ugly hole in my trailer hitch, allows easy access to load my roof rack, and if someone rear ends me at low speed at a light it will likely save my bumper. Fits good, Looks good, works good.


I have owned this trailer hitch step for a year. I have used it multiple times a day for one full year, and it still works like the day I put it on. No rust, no malfunction, no complaints from me.


Hitch is great. Holes didn't work for my setup, as I wanted it in as tightly as possible for no rattle, but was able to drill a hole in front of the existing holes. Step has a nice action. Thing feels solid, especially if you crack your shin on it!


Exactly what I wanted. Works great.


Great item, solid build, no-hassle installation and operation. Looks great on my new Tacoma!

Susan M.


Going strong


The product is exactly what I wanted - good quality and as described. Buyers be advised that it took 15 days to receive - and not due to etrailer. The manufacturer only produced it when I ordered it, so if you want it quickly you'd better plan ahead. As always is the best.


Well made. Overall excellent product. Great service from etrailer.


Very sturdy. High use install due to kids playing in the truck box often. Every couple of months throw a small amount of grease or lube on it and should last for a very long time. Highly recommend for kids and adults.


The hitch step is just what I was looking for, to help me get in and out of the back of my truck.


My husband loved it and the cup holders too!


Fits good and works good, definitely would recommend a receiver lock so no one walks off with it


Very low profile, looks great. Nice step for when the tailgate is up.


this is a heavy duty Hitch great quality item. wish i had it long ago. i love the fact that it closes up so you don't hit your leg on it. highly recommend !!!


This hitch step is heavy duty and good quality.


Step to clean the windshield. . .works great

    I ran out to the warehouse and took some measurements of the Carr Hitch Mounted Step for 2" Trailer Hitches # CARR183252 and got the following measurements depicted below.

    The Carr Hitch Mounted Step For 2 Inch Trailer Hitches like # CARR183032 does not come with U.S. Navy. We have a plain hitch step # CARR183252 and I've linked the page to all of our U.S. Navy hitch covers for your convenience. Unfortunately we don't currently have a U.S. Navy hitch step.

    Although a step like the # B75300 Bestop TrekStep isn't available for the Tundra, we do have options that would work great for you.

The step is constructed of powder coated aluminum so you won't need to worry about it rusting. If you're wanting something that would work with the tailgate open, a hitch...

    Unfortunately, there is not a bumper step like the Bestop # B75300 you referenced available for your 1996 Dodge 3500 Dually. For a step option that is compatible, I recommend the Carr Hitch Mounted Step # CARR183252 or the HitchMate TruckStep # HE4045.
