First look - not yet loaded up. Ordered this because the less expensive Curt (C18110) was out of stock. It seems like a worthwhile upgrade anyway, with rounded corners and better tie-down options.

Finish seems high quality. Significant play exists in the hitch receiver (Curt C11276 - gap visible in photo) to the point that I ordered a hitch immobilizer and don't plan to test the carrier with a full load until that's installed.


Would have been much if the cargo carrier was made in the USA; however it works great and fit great

Works great. I carry generator on Reese Cargo Carrier. Haven’t had any problems.
Archie - 05/14/2021


Very happy with the product and the top-notch service and support from etrailer. The cargo carrier is well-built, looks good, and was easy to assemble. We've traveled over 5,000 miles with it over the past two months. The upward-curved attachment rod is a plus for our low-riding Mazda 3 hatchback; we've only scraped a few times so far and the carrier was unscathed. Good results. Pro tips: get a ratchet strap and secure one side of the carrier to the rear tow hook on your car - this adds great stability (no wobbling); also consider some reflective tape.


This is a great piece! Easy to assemble and was just what I needed to haul camping gear


Here are a couple pix of the cargo carrier I ordered & installed on my 1988 Corvette. Feel free to use them in your advertisements.


I haven't used it yet but the assembly was very easy. Videos on the website were excellent. Only issue was it was shipped separate from the rest of my order. A quick email to customer service and everything was great.

Used the carrier on a trip. Worked out perfectly. Small enough to not be in the way yet large enough to hold what needed
Norman - 11/01/2018


Shipping and delivery was quick. Easy to assemble and install on my vehicle. Good quality product.


I'm very happy with the cargo carrier. Assembly was simple (get ahold of 2 ratchet wrenches if you can) and the unit is sturdy and appears well made. I had an old carrier that didn't have the raised arm and it was constantly scraping the ground when going up and down curb cuts like driveways and such. This design is much better. Also, this carrier has tons of tie-down locations which is very important. And etrailer is a great company to deal with -- fair pricing and great service. I purchased several items from them over the years and have always been very satisfied .


It worked well for a 7000 mile camping trip! Full size spare, camping gear, wet tent, etc. We did use support straps from top of hatch to back or carrier as recommended. (photo wouldn't upload)


Easy to assemble and the quality of the cargo carrier was very good. Works well on my CRV. Highly recommend for extra outside storage space for your vehicle.


Great product. Fast and easy experience, as always, with etrailer.


Like many of you I read all the reviews about this Cargo Carrier (63155) Light kit (20174), and net (7330) some were negative some were positive. Here is what I found with my order. When I first opened the box I found everything I ordered was in the box, however prior to receiving this package I had an email sent from one off the employees letting me know the order was packed everything was in stock and was shipped with the tracking information. (I was impressed with this and was impressed even more when a different employee sent me an email to let me know that the package was delivered so I knew to look for it when I got Home.) Ok so the Cargo carrier a real nice thick coat of black glossy paint. Looks great. There was a small amount of assembly which didn't require reading the enclosed direction because it was very obvious what went where. Very nice carrier. The light kit was packed in a bag if you read the reviews some were complaining about not enough wire and wire ties (tie straps) I found there was plenty of each but you will need to plan out the routing before you use your tie straps. The light kit is very easy to install took 4-5 minutes. The light kit is in my opinion an important add on because of the vehicle lights being partially or even fully blocked when the cargo carrier is loaded it offers brake, turn signal, and running lights the same as your vehicle would do. I highly recommend it. lastly the cargo net it really cool the hooks are easier to put on then the video online shows them to be. Overall if you need a carrier that is a class II 20 X 48 1 1/4" this is an excellent buy both price and quality.


Think its going to get a lot of use! Son installed the hitch in 25 min. carrier was easy to assemble, and will get a lot of use!


Bought this carrier for a 2018 CR-V with a 1 1/4 Honda hitch. So far so good. Easy to assemble. Seems study. Hasn't bottomed out on moderately steep driveways. Minimal side-to-side wiggle. Full sized cooler blocks the license plate but not brake lights. Low profile loads are fine. Doesn't interfere with rear hatch. Should have bought the locking pin right off the bat. Good price, excellent service online and via phone, rapid delivery. Hopefully it'll hold up.


The product came on time, in perfect condition. I bought this for my son who is planning a camping trip soon after Christmas. He forgot to check the hitch size and thought he could just go to Pep Boys but they only had 2 in. hitch baskets. I was very impressed with how easy your website was to use. I found the correct cargo basket for my son's car in no time. I had a confirmation email in minutes and a shipping confirmation with tracking the next day. When I get my hitch for my Honda CR-V, I'll use etrailer.


Easy to assemble plus the angled shank gave me just enough clearance on my 2017 Bolt when backing out of driveway.


Just right!!! It works great.


WELL WORTH THE EXTRA FEW $$$I bought a Hidden Hitch for my Subaru Outback so I wouldn't be bashing folks shins. Problem is, with a regular basket, you have to crawl under to get the pin in. With this raised basket it is MUCH EASIER.

It is also nice that it is custom cut for tail lights when I want to go that route.

If you have a Class2 hitch - THIS IS THE BASKET TO BUY.


Worked perfectly!!!


Does the job quite well! Very pleased with how well it is built.


One year in and still going strong. I use this for carrying the trash cans to the dump . I had to get creative about how to strap them on so they don't fall off, but that was not a problem. I have also used it for carrying luggage. It is very stable and is holding up extremely well. I highly recommend this item.


I bought this carrier a year ago and it continues to perform well. I use it on an 07 Toyota Solara. I had previous carriers that were too low to the ground when loaded and it bottomed out. This one also has a rise to it and it never bottoms out. I actually called and spoke to customer service and they recommended getting this one and actually helped even more by explaining since it was the correct size for my receiver and I didnt have to use an adapter anymore, that i could use its full weight load. This was the solution. Also keep in mind the positioning of your exhaust, if you add a bag and go on a long trip, it could melt, but that is not due to the design of this product. Its an opportunity for all. I would recommend this item.


I am extremely pleased on how easy it was to assemble and the sturdiness. I've purchased other brands in the past that took forever to assemble.Since the upper parts of the basket come already welded together, you don't have to worry about screws coming loose. It is an ingenious design. I'm impressed.


Bought this cargo carrier a year ago for our 2017 Buick Encore. We were moving from Tennessee to North Dakota and I needed just a little more hauling space. What I love about this hitch mounted carrier is the angled post that sticks into the hitch. The hitch on a 2017 Encore is already pretty low to the ground, so having this increase in height is very welcome. I stowed up to 6 large Rubbermaid totes on this carrier with no problem. Just took a trip last month with only 3 and this still allowed me to open the back hatch without taking the totes off. Great product, easy to assemble and turns a small SUV into a very capable vehicle.


Received earlier than expected. Shipment looked great, easy assembly all systems go! Thanks!

See what our Experts say about this Reese Hitch Cargo Carrier

  • Weight and Capacity of Reese # 63155 Cargo Carrier
    Although the basket has a 300 lb capacity, you'll be limited by whichever component of your towing system has the lowest capacity, whether it be the carrier or the hitch. Take a look at the sticker on your hitch. If the hitch is a Class I, you'll likely have a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, which means the downward force or weight applied to the hitch could not exceed 200 lbs. This would mean that the combined weight of the carrier (about 40 lbs) and the weight of whatever's carried on...

  • Will the Pro Series Cargo Carrier # 63155 Clear the Bumper of a 2012 Chevy Malibu
    The Pro Series Cargo Carrier # 63155 that you referenced has a distance of 11 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the nearest edge of the cargo carrier. So it should work on your 2012 Chevy Malibu since you have a distance of 7-1/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the furthest edge of the rear bumper.

  • Compatibility of Rola 23 By 56 Cargo Carrier on a Dodge Grand Caravan and a 2010 Subaru Forester
    The Reese Cargo Carrier, item # 63155, will most likely fit both of your vehicles as long as they have Class I or Class II hitches installed. I went out to the warehouse and measured the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the carrier and found that it is 11 inches. You will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch to the farthest out part of the vehicle or spare tire, if the Subaru has a rear mounted spare tire.

  • Recommended Flat Fixed Cargo Carrier for a 2008 Kia Sportage
    I highly recommend the 20x47 Reese Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitches, # 63155. The great thing about this carrier is that it has a 3 inch rise for better ground clearance. These extra 3 inches make loading and unloading that much easier and it provides that much more clearance for entering and exiting driveways with steep grades and dips.

    Your 2007 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer could have either a 1-1/4 inch hitch or a 2 inch hitch. You will need to measure the size of the receiver opening on the hitch to make sure what size you have.

  • Towing a Trailer Behind a Cargo Carrier is Very Dangerous

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Low Ground Clearance 1-1/4 inch Hitch
    The best option you have would be a cargo carrier that has a rise built into the shank that fits your hitch size directly like the Pro Series Cargo Carrier part # 63155 which has a shank with a rise of 3 inches. You'll still need to be careful on incline changes but this would be your best option.

  • Cargo Carrier With Rise That Fits 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
    There is not an adapter we carry which fits in a 1-1/4" hitch receiver that simply offers rise. The best option is is going to be a cargo carrier for a 1-1/4" receiver that has a shank with rise, such as the Pro Series # 63155 which has a shank that gives you 3" of rise.

I also recommend finding the tongue weight limit on the vehicle itself, which should be listed in the owner's manual. You will need to adhere to whichever limit is lower, the vehicle's or the hitch's. Please also keep in mind that the weight of the carrier itself...
