Expert Answers about Hitch Cargo Carrier


  • Best RV Rated Cargo Carrier Option for Cooler, Generator and Bikes
  • I do have a solution for you, but the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 is not designed to be used on the back of an RV. Generally speaking, folding carriers are not ideal because they do not stand up too well to the extra stress exerted by the excessive up and down movement that takes place behind the rear axle of an RV. Instead, take a look at the 23x60 Stromberg Carlson Cargo Carrier # CC-100. It's also rated for 500 lbs and it's basically the same size. The difference is that...

  • Does Curt Cargo Carrier 18113 Have Eye Hooks
  • I see what you are saying, and it looks like Curt simply took some photos from a similar cargo carrier because the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18113 does not come with the eye hooks. The similar carrier that does have those hooks is the Curt Cargo Carrier with 48" Ramp # C18112. I have added photos for you which show the difference between the two carriers, and also added links to a pair of video reviews of both Curt cargo carriers # C18113 and # C18112 for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of Lockable Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Longer Than 60
  • The biggest lockable trailer hitch cargo carrier that we have is the GearSpace 34 Enclosed Cargo Carrier which comes in Dark Gray # HGK819 and Light Gray # HGK826. This carrier measures 68" long x 33" wide x 40" tall on the outside and 63" long x 28" wide x 40" tall on the inside. It comes with locks for the box itself and then you can add the Snap-On Lock # ACC3250 to the Anti-Rattle Silent Hitch Pin to secure the carrier to your trailer hitch.

  • Water Resistant Bag for Curt Cargo Carrier # C18100
  • The etrailer cargo bag part # 988501 would be a great option for a water resistant cargo bag to fit the hitch cargo carrier part # C18100 that you referenced. The difference between water resistance and water proof in this case is that the bag would keep contents dry as long as weren't planning to submerge the bag under water.

  • Recommended Cargo Net for the 24X60 Reese # 63153 Cargo Carrier
  • For the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier # 63153 I recommend using the Stretch Net # Y07018 which measures 55" long x 21" wide un-stretched and is designed for the Yakima SkinnyWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07014 which measures 58" long x 23" wide. There isn't a net designed specifically for the your carrier which is why the Stretch Net is your best option. Attached is a photo of this net on the SkinnyWarrior that you can use as a reference.

  • Length of Shank on etrailer Cargo Carrier for Spare Tire Clearance of Jeep Cherokee
  • From the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # e98874 when it is folded down is 19-1/2" so I'm pretty confident this will work in that orientation. You can measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest edge of your spare and make sure that it's under 19-1/2" just to verify. When the carrier is folded up that reduces the clearance by 10" so from the center of the hitch pin hole to the carrier will be 9-1/2" and...

  • Comparing Curt and Reese Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers
  • The 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches, part # C18152, and the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches, part # 63153, are extremely similar. In fact, in terms of the specs that you mentioned, neither stands above the other. I only recommend the Curt over the Reese because the rails are 3" taller, allowing you to have more options in what you can carry. As for foldable baskets, they are reliable. For example, the Curt Folding Carrier, part # C18151, has fantastic reviews from...

I included an image to show you what it will look like along with an installation video on a Subaru Outback Wagon. So, check it out!

  • How To Add Tail Lights To the Curt Cargo Carrier Part C18152
  • I do have an option for you but they do not offer a custom fit taillight kit for the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18152. However, you should be able to make the LED Light Kit part # 98174LED work for you rather easily by finding a way to install two of the Oval Mounting Brackets part # 421-09. This will be your best option if you want to add lights to the above carrier.

  • We can get you a great cargo carrier for your 2017 Tesla Model X that is lightweight so your pup has enough room to enjoy the ride with you; that's a pretty big dog so they need all the room they can get! What I highly recommend is the Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # C18113 because at just 25 lbs it is the lightest carrier available, giving you 95 lbs of capacity. so you can transport your gear.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Carrying Heavy Womens Bike On 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • You could definitely use the etrailer carrier # e98873 or Ultra Fab # UF48-979033 to carry your Raleigh Venture 4.0 but from the specs I found on your bike it appears to weigh roughly 30lbs which would fit on most standard bike racks. However, I would instead recommend the Kuat NV 2.0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack # BA22B which is designed for heavier bikes with a maximum weight per bike of 60lbs and can be used with the Acces Ramp # ANVBRB to make loading easy. The main concern I would...

  • How To Lock the Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier

The weld nut inside the shank on the Thule Transporter is the same as that on the Thule bike racks. If you want to be sure that the lock cores on the cargo carrier and hitch lock are the same you can also order the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders part # TH450200.

I do not think you should have much of a problem with this cargo carrier shifting during transport and damaging the back of your taillights.

  • Using the Yakima LongArm as a Load Assist Just Like the Rhino-Rack T-Load
  • The Yakima LongArm with Extender, part # Y01149-1150, can be used as a lift-assist like the Rhino-Rack T-Load, part # RTL002, in theory. However, the setup is not ideal or one I recommend. The advantages the T-Load has are the loading strap and the two brackets. The strap acts as a cradle when lifting the kayak, both securing it and protecting the kayak from scratching on the rack. The brackets also act as a stabilizer, ensuring the kayak doesn't sway too far to the sides if the kayak...

For the back tire we used Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie Downs for Bike Racks # SR54FR. The Claw is a standard fork mount design and it comes with the necessary hardware to mount it to floor of the cargo carrier. If you have a thru axle bike you can use Swagman Impakt Bike Rack # S64703. To...

  • Will Load Extender Match the Truckbed Height of 2016 Toyota Tacoma With Factory Hitch?
  • The lowest setting of the Erikson Big Bed Load Extender # EM07600 is 18" in height while the lowest setting of the Yakima LongArm Truck Bed Load Extender # Y01149 is measured at 17" high. That will still bring you at an inch higher than your truck bed. If you're carrying a kayak, you can put down some foam blocks like Malone RackPads # MPG314 to lift the kayak up on your truck bed and you can reuse the blocks when you store your kayak in your garage or on the ground. The blocks are 3-1/2"...

  • What Ramp Bike Rack Solution do You Recommend for My Aventon Adventure E-Bike?
  • I have a great bike rack solution for you. Unfortunately, since your Aventon Adventure E-Bike weighs 73 pounds, it exceeds any maximum weight capacity of a bike rack with an integrated ramp option. With that being said, if you absolutely need a ramp feature, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches - With Ramp # UF48-979033. Not only will this be able to mount with a compatible 2-inch hitch on both your Toyota RAV4 and your GulfStream Conquest Class C motorhome, it comes...

  • Trailer Hitch and Lightweight Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2020 Toyota Highlander LE
  • The best combination for you to carry a lightweight cargo carrier behind your 2020 Toyota Highlander is the Curt Trailer Hitch # C99FR and the 22-1/2x49 Curt Cargo Carrier, Item # C18113. Both of these have a 500 lb tongue weight rating which look to match up with the max rating of your vehicle - you will want to double check this in your owner's manual though just to be on the safe side. The Curt hitch features a hidden crosstube so all you're going to see is the receiver. This means...

For your application I recommend the 24x48-3/4 Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02. This is essentially a cage that comes with a bag to help protect your cargo against the weather. You can add a lock to the cage with the Master Lock # ML312KA and then you can lock the shank of the carrier with the part # 63232. As for rear clearance on your Jeep and...

You will need to consider the weight capacity you are looking to carry with your cargo carrier to ensure that it is safe. The Extender # HE06 will reduce your receiver tongue weight capacity by 50% or up to 350lbs(whichever is less). With the carrier weight at 39lbs you will only be able to carry a maximum of 311lbs at most with this carrier...

When in the fully-extended position the LongArm sits out 48" from the center of your hitch pin hole which means you should have roughly 5' of canoe sitting past that. You can use the Crossbar Pad # Y07417 and some Straps # Y05006 to secure your kayak to the extender. If you'd feel more comfortable with something a little longer then you can use the...

  • Will etrailer 24x62 Folding Cargo Carrier Fit Inside RV Storage Compartment
  • When the etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98872 is completely folded up for storage, it gets down to a pretty compact size of 32-1/4 inches long x 11-1/4 inches wide x 21-1/4 inches tall, so if the space inside your RV's storage compartment is at least that big, you're good to go. Since the size of RV storage compartments can vary, you'll just need to take a quick measurement to ensure there is enough space to store the carrier inside. If you find that your compartment is too small, you can...

  • Lightweight Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2019 Tesla Model X

For a lighter weight option for your 2019 Tesla Model X with a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76143 installed this would be a really great option. It weight just under 30 lbs. For a hitch lock that doubles as an anti-rattle device the part # 63232 would be a great option as well. This holds the shank of the carrier to the hitch tube so that movement and noise is removed.

Instead, I would look at 24x64 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper - Steel - Folding - 500 lbs # e83YR.

Because of this reason, I recommend using something like the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # 63153.

However, the best and easiest route is to use a dirt bike/moped carrier like the Ultra-Fab Dirt Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches - With Ramp # UF48-979033.

  • Is Curt Cargo Carrier Going to be Clear From Exhaust
  • The Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151 is an excellent option for a carrier to not have to worry about exhaust. The reason is it extends a full 19 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the carrier. That means there is far more clearance from the exhaust than other carriers, and that, along with its large 24" x 60" size is why we highly recommend the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151. You will also need to secure it to your trailer hitch, and for an anti-rattle device...

You can also fold the carrier up against the rear of your vehicle when not in use so it isn't sticking out behind your vehicle when it doesn't need to be.

The bag is 47 x 20 inches, versus the 46-3/8 x 17-9/16 interior dimensions of the cargo carrier, but the bag is soft sided and would still fit just fine in the carrier.

  • Can I Use the 2-1/2" Anti Rattle Hitch Pin for etrailer Cargo Carrier on a 2" Receiver

Both the hitch receiver and the cargo carrier will work well on your 2010 Mazda CX-9.

If the Rola Cargo Carrier is too high for you to open the doors on your 2021 Sprinter 2500 chassis, there are other cargo carriers that do not the added 2-inch rise of the Rola carrier.

This has 11 inches of rise built into the shank of it which is more than any other options. Using a rise adapter with a carrier isn't ideal as it adds quite a bit of movement and also cuts the hitch capacity by 50 percent.

  • I might have an idea worth considering, but unfortunately I'm not aware of a product like what you are describing. It sounds like a cool idea though. I can't take full credit for this idea because I saw it on an overlanding blog, but he took a basic hitch cargo basket like part # C18145 and bolted a dual propane tank rack like part # 37220BL, to the bottom and this gave him the ability to carry a ton of propane with him when he stayed out for weeks at a time. This combination would...

  • Diameter of Tie-Down Holes of Lets Go Aero H01465 Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • The holes around the edge of the # H01465 Let's Go Aero BigBoss cargo carrier are 3/8 of an inch in diameter, so the S-hooks of some ratchet straps would fit. The sides of the carrier are pretty sturdy, but I could see how the carrier box could be deformed if the ratchets were ran down too aggressively. I'd say that the holes are more meant for bungee cords or a cargo net such as what's included with the # H01496 Cover/Cargo net. I'll link you to a product demonstration video featuring...

  • Are Locks Available or Bolts on 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier
  • The only locking piece that works with the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874 is the Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock # e99047 that you referenced. There aren't any locks for standard hardware save from using threadlocker like the part # LT37420 which makes hardware near-impossible to remove. I'm not sure I would use the threadlocker though. Thieves tend to be opportunists so if someone is prepared enough to bring tools to steal your carrier I'm sure they would have some backup...

  • Solution for Cross Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Bolt for etrailer Cargo Carrier e98874
  • The thread pitch for the anti-rattle hitch bolt that is included with the etrailer Carco Carrier # e98874 is 16 mm x 2.00, standard thread. I went out and confirmed this myself using a thread pitch gauge. You could try re-threading the bolt, but since we do carry the bolt separately, it may be easier to just replace it. For that, you'll need part # e98911 or # e99047 for the locking version.

  • Are All Hitch Cargo Carriers Ok to Use at 80MPH?
  • Yes! Since cargo carriers like the 22-1/2x49 Curt Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - Aluminum # C18113 do not have a maximum highway speed rating, you will be safe in driving at 80mph. We have had lots of neighbors who have traveled at those speeds and never report issues. With that being said, it is important to have the proper securing methods. If you have a lot of medium-sized cargo, the Curt Stretchable Cargo Net - 43" Long x 24" Wide # C18202 works great with the # C18113; if you have...

That said the carrier and hitch can both handle the weight of what you want to carry. As far as if the bumper can handle it you will need to check with your camper's manufaturer to ensure it can handle that weight.

  • Can 2015 Lexus RX350 Handle Tongue Weight From 250 lb Dirt Bike
  • According to the owner's manual, the 2015 Lexus RX350 has a 3500 lb towing capacity if it's equipped with the towing package. If you're unsure how your vehicle is equipped, just call your Lexus dealer and provide the VIN, they will be able to tell you if the vehicle is equipped with the tow package. The manual goes on to say that the tongue weight should be 9-11% of the trailer weight or weight of the load carried by the hitch. This translates to between 315 and 385 lbs for the tow package...

  • Recommended Bed Extender for 2001 Ford Ranger to Carry Kayak

So, as long as you've got a 2" receiver like the Curt # 13138 on your 2001 Ford Ranger you'll be able to use the Malone # MPG907 without any issues. This bed extender will add up to 62" to your truck bed and will provide a nice, sturdy base to carry your 14 foot long kayak. In...

  • Can I Use A Hitch Extender With The Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 To Carry A 150lb Load?
  • Yes, you can use the Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier # C18100 with your 2020 Chevy Equinox with a hitch extender like the Brophy 7" Hitch Extender # HE06. Since you are only going to be carrying about 100-150lbs it will be fine, but keep in mind that when you use a hitch extender you limit the accessory to about 50% of its original weight capacity.

This would be the best fitting alternative for the Carpod # M2205 you'd looked at. Another alternative would be a cargo bag like # M2202 which is specially designed to fit the Carpod carrier.

  • Will Cargo Carrier Work for 4 Bikes

For that you are going to need a 4-bike rack. The most economical 4-bike rack is the Curt 4-Bike Rack # C18030. This will do a fine job of getting your bikes from point A to point B on occasion.
