Video Transcript for Review of etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier - e98943-44LED

Today we're going to take a look the etrailer.com LED Taillight and License Plate Mounting Kit for a hitch-mounted cargo carrier. Now this nice convenient license plate and led mounting kit will let you complete your cargo carrier setup. This is designed to fit the cargo carrier part numbers that we sell, part number E98874, C18153 and C18152, all three of those cargo carriers we do sell separately on our website.Basically, these light brackets let you mount taillights on your carrier so that your light taillights can be seen. Sometimes when you load up your cargo carrier, it could get tall enough that it would block your taillights, so to be legal you do want to make sure you have taillights on the cargo carrier. These lights will give your cargo carrier stop, tail and turn signal lights, and they are LED lights, so they are brighter than conventional lights and there are no bulbs on them so you never have to replace the bulb. They're 100% maintenance-free and each light on this uses 12 LEDs.

Now at the end of this video, I am going to plug this in just to show you how they operate.The license plate mounting bracket, which are these two brackets here with the bolts, they will allow you to relocate your license plate. Here's an example of a license plate, and the same way sometimes if you load up your cargo carrier, it'll block your license plate. So again, to be legal, you should have this also mounted on your cargo carrier. So these brackets allow you to mount the license plate on the cargo carrier, also. Keeps the plate visible when you're hauling the large cargo.Now it's a very easy installation, comes with all the mounting hardware.

It even comes with some extra cable ties to take up any slack in the wiring. Now the brackets, they're metal brackets and you can see at the bottom of them they have the mounting holes, so it has the mounting screws. These will hang over the top of your bracket, and then attach to the bottom of the cargo carrier. The lights use a grommet. You can see there's a grommet around the light and they're just made to snap into the bracket themselves.So once you get them snapped in there, just like that, they'll be held in place.

And it comes with the wire harness with a 4-way that you just plug into the 4-way on the back of your vehicle to operate your lights.So what I'm going to do now is we're going to go ahead and plug this in and then turn off the lights. I just want to show you how the LED lights are bright and how they operate. So we'll go ahead and plug in our 4-way. Okay. And with our 4-way plugged in, I'm going to go ahead and turn on the lights and you can see that would be your taillights.

So we'll go ahead and turn off the lights. That would be your taillights on the cargo carrier. And then when you apply your brakes, you can see that they light up a lot brighter for your brake lights and they're also wired for the turn signal. So on the turn signal you can see what they'll do. Go ahead and hook that one up and you can see there would be your turn signal and for your other one. They light up brighter for your turn signal. I'll go ahead and turn back on our overhead lights. Turn off our power. But that should do it for the review on the etrailer.com LED Taillight and License Plate Mounting Kit for your hitch-mounted cargo carrier.

First I have to say that I am very pleased with your customer service, specificly Roger ext 79340 and George. George alerted me that one of the items had a longer lead time than I was expecting. When I called Roger helped me change my order slightly so that I would get all the items that I needed within my planned schedule. As I am heading out on a fishing trip. All parts came in on time, and everything installed very easy. Thank you very much for helping to make the last few days a little less stressful.




by:

Overall, the assembly and installation is very straight forward and simple. However, the fit of the lights and grommets into the brackets is very loose. I actually used an adhesive to secure the grommets to the bracket to prevent them from potentially rattling loose during travel. Overall, decent, but maybe not worth the current price point ($xx.xx).

  • Is My Cargo Carrier Legal or Illegal?
    From my research, I discovered that most states require brake lights on any accessory if the accessory blocks the view of the vehicle's taillights. As far as the legality of the length of the carrier extending from the rear of your RV, I recommend checking with your state's highway patrol documents. If you need brake lights for your cargo carrier, I recommend the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # e98943-44LED. The kit also comes with...

  • Recommended Cargo Hitch Carrier for a 2014 Ford Escape
    I have two different recommendations for a hitch cargo carrier that should sit above the exhaust on your 2014 Ford Escape. I recommnd the etrailer Carrier, part # e98874. This is a 500 lbs carrier that is folding and has a 2 inch rise. This carrier has a 19-1/2 inch distance from the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier when in use, so this might help with your exhaust issue. It also has a tilting option when loaded. Since none of our cargo carriers come with lights pre-installed,...

    The light package, # e98943-44LED, will only be necessary if your cargo will cover the tail lights on your vehicle. The etrailer Cargo Carrier, # e98874, is a wide carrier at 60 inches wide. If you will be carrying large items that will sit tall enough to block your tail lights, then you will need the light package. You can also check your local laws and regulations to see if the additional lights are required when using a cargo carrier. The carrier itself will not block your tail lights...

  • Folding Cargo Carrier for 2010 Chevy Traverse
    Unfortunately, Rola doesn't make a folding version of the # 59502 and an adapter is not an option for it. The etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier, part # e98874 will fit your vehicle if the hitch pin hole to rear of bumper measurement is less than 9-1\2 inches. The # e98943-44LED light kit can be added to that carrier, and I think you would be happy with their oval appearance. I've linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.

    You do not have to install the Cargo Carrier Light Kit # e98943-44LED on the 24x60 Folding Cargo Carrier # e98874 in order for it to be used on your 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. It is a judgment call, if you think that the cargo carrier would not block the view of your tail lights then I would not worry about it. Otherwise I would recommend you get it. I would also recommend you check your local laws and regulations to determine if there is a legal requirement for you to have a light...

  • Will a 24 By 48 inch Box Fit in the 24x60 Cargo Carrier For 2 inch Trailer Hitches
    Your box should fit as long as it is no wider than 24 inches, which is the inside width of this carrier. The distance from the start of the corner on these carriers is 61-1/2 inches so there will be plenty of length along the front and back for your 48 inch long box to fit inside. The total inside width is 60 inches. Weight capacity is 500 pounds. Please check the tongue weight of your vehicle. You must go with the lowest limit.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 with Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier
    For your 2018 Ford F-150 I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76136 because it has a nice clean installation with a hidden crosstube, all backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier C18153 is a great product that you will be happy with and the only other things I recommend are a locking anti-rattle hitch pin and a light kit. You can use part # 63232 for the hitch in and then part # e98943-44LED for the light and license plate kit. Attached...

  • Difference Between etrailer and Pro Series 24 by 60 Cargo Carriers
    The etrailer carrier part # e98874 is about 10 lbs heavier than the Pro Series part # 63153 that you referenced because it can fold up when not in use unlike the Pro Series, and can be tilted down. Both carriers are compatible with a light kit. The Pro Series with the # 98174LED and the etrailer with the # e98943-44LED. Between these two carriers I recommend the etrailer due to the additional features.
