This carrier was super easy to assemble. It is a bit heavy but I was able to mount it onto my hitch alone. I’m using an anti-rattle lock and they work great together.

No issues after a year of use. We used it maybe four times last summer for our trips to the lake. Haven’t noticed any rattling or loosening of boltswelds.
Martin G - 05/04/2022


This is perfect! Our Mazda cx5 didn't have a ton of ground clearance after installing the hitch. This cargo carrier with the hitch riser is perfect to solve that problem. My only complaint is I stepped between the metal supports and the meshvonnthe bottom came loose/bent. Still holds up just find though. Ice had this thing fully loaded, too! Definitely recommend a anti-rattle or stabilizer kit to help stabilize it and lift it up.

The Curt C18151 cargo carrier isnt designed to be stood upon.

Easy installation and solid build! We assembled the cargo carrier and installed the hitch very easily! Took it on a trip and it did great, we love it. Thanks so much etrailer!


Rack performance is excellent…geometry of the bottom edge relative to the low height of the hitch relative to the road surface requires thinking ahead when there’s significant difference in road surface pitch (for example backing into a steep driveway from a horizontal pavement would result in the carrier dragging for a short distance)


Installation: Easy
Assembly: Easy
to: Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Item # C13163
Use: Camping equipment. Cooler, Chairs, Sleeping bags, firewood, etc.
Like: The fact that it folds is a huge positive.
What I would change: perhaps adding a ring or two on the sides to allow for bungee cords or rope.
Because the hitch is already a bit low on the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander (stock wheels, tires, suspension) the back part of the basket can bottom out rather easily. It has nothing to do with the carrier itself though.

I would definitely recommend this product! I'm going to use it again in a month for our next camping trip.


Easy assembly. .10 min...great quality. .love the folding feature...I bought this for my hunting jeep so I have a spot available to load game but not be forced to have a carrier hanging out at all long as the 500lb rating holds up I couldn't be happier ..I won't need near that but the 300 lb carriers seemed a little lite

Still working great..used a number of times
Brett - 09/09/2018


It was very hard to figure out what kind of cargo carrier would be the best for my needs, until I got on your website. Your videos are very informative to help with making the decision of which cargo carrier was best.
It was very easy to put together, and very strong (I put my husband in it)this is perfect for our vacation transportation.

Cynthia D - 06/09/2017


Lost my truck recently and needed a way to take in recycling without stinking-up the SUV. Cargo carrier assembled easy and worked great on the first trash run. Flipped-up perfectly for the follow-on shopping trip.

After a year this is still a great product!!
John R - 09/10/2020


Easy to assemble. Welds questionable. Paint quality poor. The flip hinge has play hopefully not noisy when loaded. Time will tell


The cargo carrier is very well built and the powder coating make the carrier look real nice , very easy to assemble. Got it just in time for my 500 mile road trip.

Still looks great after a year. Would still recommend to anyone looking for a cargo carrier.

- 6 hour trip two ways and no
major issues.
- Fits well on Jeep Grand Cherokee

- Multiple build issues. The first issue was there was slag inside of the bar that the other side was supposed to fit into, which made it impossible to put together. I had to buy a metal file small enough to fit in there and file away for 15 minutes to get it to fit.
- One of the upright flat panels that you bolt the other panel to to connect the sides was missing 95% of its weld, there was just a dot instead of a weld all the way across it.
- After the whole thing was put together there were gaps in the cross bars where they should have been flush. No matter how I tweaked the bolt tightening they wouldn’t go straight together.

I would have returned it but I was leaving on my trip the day after I got it so I had to make it work. And the box was destroyed. Spend the money to get a higher quality carrier.


the basket frame is sturdy. The woven metal is pulling away from the frame and thr only thing we have carried is our portable generator 3 times. We are going to have to somehow fix we before the generator falls through.


As marketed, this is very easy to install and remove. The hinge does force the cage in open position father from hitch than anticipated. Because our hitch is on a van below the bumper, we often bottom out on steep hills.


Appears to be well built and was very easy to assemble.

Works great! Used it for a total of 3 deer last year. Much easier than loading into a pickup truck.
Dennis - 10/13/2022


Worked like a charm. I was skeptical about using this, as I’d never seen one before. On the trip to Florida, I did see multiple other vehicles with racks.


I received my cargo carrier and had it assembled in about an hour.
It fits perfectly, helps protect the spare from theft. I can access the 110 ac cord as well
as the water heater.

Great product, great customer service and great shipment.
Now I can take a generator and other extras to Yellowstone NationPark in October.

Great quality and very strong fast and easy to assemble.


This hitch mount carrier has worked very well for our camping needs. Well constructed and easy to use.


This fit perfectly on our 2013 Honda Odyssey. It extended our cargo capacity and was easy to use on our two week family trip. I like how it can fold up and out of the way when not loaded. It does ride low, so be prepared for some occasional scraping on the road.


The info on the curt cargo carrier hitch was Exactly how etrailer said it was gonna look and how it was gonna hook up and be put together and their description and videos . Thank you etrailer great prices , customer service ,
Informative information on the products and fast delivery .


Sturdy product, just what I need for towing small loads occasionally, instead of hooking up a wheeled trailer.


Fast delivery, product a little loose in my receiver


The 20x59 inch Curt cargo carrier works well for my Dodge minivan. The price was very reasonable and construction seems durable and heavy. Assembly was not difficult. It can be installed on the van by one person, but definitely easier with two. I got the 2inch hitch version. I can fit two 35 gallon trash cans in it, plus a smaller can, with room to fit misc trash. I can also fit two 22 inch walk behind mowers on it, with gas and string trimmer. I can fit about 5 buckets of sand in the winter, 5 gal each, chainsaws, tools, gas, oil, anything you wouldn’t want inside the vehicle. I’ve had this for about a year and it continues to be a very helpful accessory.

After a couple of years, the product is still working well. No issues at all.
Bill - 04/12/2020


It performed as advertised. I can not think of a shortcoming or improvement I would make.


Pictures of this cargo carrier on my 2011 Acura MDX

would a scooter fit on this? it weighs about 200lbs and is 26 inches wide x 67 inches long.

  • How To Determine if Curt Cargo Carrier # C18151 Will Fit 2011 Dodge Durango When Folded Up
    To determine if the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier, part # C18151, will fit on your 2011 Dodge Durango when folded up, will require you to take a measurement. If you measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your vehicles hitch to the part farthest back on your vehicle and it measures less than 6 inches, the Curt folding cargo carrier will fit when folded. I am including a link to a hitch installation video on a 2007 Dodge Durango. At the 2 minute mark in the video it will show a measurement...

  • How Many Bolts Hold the Basket to the Shank on Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier # C18151
    When attaching the basket portion to the shank on Curt cargo carrier # C18151, you will use 3 bolts. Two bolts are at the closest part of the shank and the other is at the very last spot on the opposite end. I have included a link to the instructions that shows a diagram indicated how all of the parts go together.

  • Will the Curt Folding Cargo Carrier # C18151 Fit a Coachman Catalina Sport Motor Home
    It might, but you will need to do some measuring first. The 20x60 Curt Cargo Carrier needs a 2 inch hitch receiver, so make sure your Catalina Sport is equipped with a 2 inch hitch. Then you will need to do a small bit of measuring. The carrier measures 16-1/4 inches from the hitch pin hole straight out to the carrier. You may want to check this measurement on your motor home if you have a spare tire or ladder, just to make sure the carrier will clear.

  • Will a Curt Cargo Carrier Fit Folded On a 2006 Toyota 4 Runner and a 2007 Wrangler Unlimited
    The only way to be sure the Curt Cargo Carrier, item # C18151, will work on a 2006 4Runner Limited and a 2007 Jeep Wrangler is to measure. I like to use a 2 x 4 and stand it up plumb against the farthest out part of the rear of the vehicle or spare tire and measure to the center of the hitch pin hole on the hitch. On both of these vehicles if the measurement you get is less than 6 inches then the carrier will fold with no problems.

  • Could a License Plate be Attached to a Folding Curt Cargo Carrier So its Visible When Folded Up
    You could pretty easily attach your license plate to the mesh flooring of the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18151 by using zip ties so that it would be visible when folded up. In the folded up position the taillights should still be visible if they were behind the cargo carrier since the flooring is mesh and would not block the lights. This cargo carrier is not designed to be used as a battering ram or to cushion the blow of hitting a car. It would work on the front of your vehicle in the...

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with Wide Spare
    The best solution for a cargo carrier for you is going to be the part # C18151.

    I'd recommend the Curt # C18151 carrier. This carrier has a shank that's long enough that it should completely clear your spare tire with no modification needed.

With the carrier folded, the uppermost clearance is about 1 inch between the tire and the face of the carrier.

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendations for 2014 Jeep Wrangler
    Your best choice is a carrier that sits lower (5-1/2 inches from shank to top of rails), like part # C18151 that does not have any rise built into the shank that could possibly allow the rear tailgate to open. You would need to measure from the top of the hitch opening to the bottom of the rear tailgate door. If that dimension is more than 5-1/2 inches then this carrier would clear.

It will sit 14 inches off the ground at the back of the carrier. And adds 38-1/2 inches to the back of the vehicle. It would work well for you and have clearance to fold up but you would need to be careful in steep elevation changes so that it doesn't drag.

    Both of the Curt hitch-mount folding cargo carriers # C18151 and (Discontinued) C18153 fit in a 2-inch hitch and offer a 500-lb loaded cargo weight capacity. The primary differences are the carriers' weights and the type of shank on the carriers. Part # C18151 has a shipping weight of 58-lbs while the (Discontinued) C18153 has a 70-lb shipping weight due to slightly beefier construction. It also has an angled shank that provides 2-inches of additional ground clearance, which is a good...
