etrailer Cargo Bag

etrailer cargo bag

This water-resistant cargo bag lets you transport up to 9 cu ft of gear on your hitch-mounted cargo carrier. It's made of PVC-coated nylon to keep your gear clean and dry. It allows you to carry luggage, sports equipment, sleeping bags, and anything else that will fit inside. The soft bottom of the bag conforms to your cargo carrier for a secure fit. You can also use this bag in your truck bed, in your trunk or rear cargo area, or on your roof-mounted cargo carrier.

Water-Resistant Nylon with Watertight Seams

Water-Resistant fabric

This cargo bag is constructed of heavy-duty, PVC-coated nylon, so it's hard to cut or tear. If it does acquire a hole or tear, the ripstop material is designed to prevent the hole or tear from expanding. The bag is also water resistant so your cargo stays dry in rain and snow. And for added weather protection, the seams are fused together to create a watertight seal.

Large, Zippered Opening

Zippered opening Opened etrailer bag

A large, double-zippered opening on top of the bag makes it easy to load and unload your cargo. The zippers wrap around 3 sides so you can fully open the top. There is a flap with hook-and-loop fasteners that provides extra moisture protection for your cargo and helps protect the zipper from rust and corrosion. You can add a small padlock (131D - sold separately) to the zippers to secure the bag shut.

Nylon Tie-Down Straps

Tie-down straps Tie-down straps

Six nylon tie-down straps secure the bag to your hitch-mounted carrier or roof basket. Each strap attaches to one of the 6 integrated, reinforced buckle attachments on the bag. Simply feed the short end of the strap into the buckle attachment on the bag and loop the long end around the rail of your carrier. Pull it tight and tie the excess out of the way.

Foldable for Compact Storage

You can fold this bag up for compact storage when it isn't being used.

Average Customer Rating:  4.4 out of 5 stars   (9 Customer Reviews)

This water-resistant cargo bag holds up to 9 cu ft of gear. PVC-coated nylon material with covered zipper and welded seams keeps your gear clean and dry. Six tie-down straps let you secure bag in place. Fold flat for compact storage.


Great value but not perfect. My rating reflects the fact that I beat up this bag pretty thoroughly last year. It was on the road with me for over three months of camping out of my car, from mountains to deserts to beaches. I like that it's lightweight and even partially full of gear I could lift it out of my cargo rack and stick it on a bench or the ground for extended campground stays. It kept my stuff dry and clean.

The shortcomings are pretty obvious. There's no way to secure your stuff. You can put a little luggage lock on the double zipper pulls, but a box cutter will open the top in a couple seconds. The tie down stops are fine but require lots of time to reattach if you take the bag off the rack. The little velcro loops that are supposed to secure the extra length of strap are worthless and tend to fall off and disappear when the straps aren't in use. The material is prone to pinholes and other damage. Just hold it up to strong light after a trip and you'll see what I mean. A little alcohol to clean the area and some duct tape or repair patches are fine to prevent the damage from getting worse. (Shrug) I'm not sure what color would be better than black... Maybe a high visibility yellow would help prevent possible rear ending? Black sure doesn't help keep the contents cool in 100 deg desert heat. And as you can see from my photo, looks like crap after a week on the road.

Would I buy it again? As an affordable soft bag to carry loose stuff in my cargo rack, ABSOLUTELY. Can I get it in yellow next time please?


For the price the quality of this item is unmatched, also did a fantastic job at providing me with a replacement item when the item I initially ordered was out of stock!! Unbelievable customer service that has left me with a fully functioning piece of equipment in a very timely fashion!! Would order from this company time and time again and I suggest you do as well!!


works well


Seems well made and heavy duty. Fits perfectly in my tray hauler. Holds a reasonable amount of stuff.


Was dissappointed that it had no internal structure.


The produce was inspected and no defects were found. I will try it when I travel. Thanks, Troy


Holds my luggage

  • Availability of a Cargo Carrier Bag to Fit a 60 by 19 inch Cargo Carrier
    The best fit bag for a 60 inch by 19 inch cargo carrier would be the etrailer Cargo Bag, # e98990. It measures 40 inches by 20 inches by 20 inches high. I have included a link to the installation details and a video review for you. The bag is not waterproof but is weather resistant. It is possible that water could get inside in a very hard rain. Anything you do not want to get wet should be put in plastic bags.

  • Is etrailer Cargo Bag With Mounting Straps Totally Waterproof
    That's a good question and the "Water-Resistant" description of the etrailer Cargo Bag with Mounting Straps # e98990 means that it is fully resistant to the elements so you can absolutely use it and drive through inclement weather like rain or snow without any issue at all - your gear will definitely stay dry. It isn't deemed "Waterproof" because that would mean you could submerge it completely in water and everything would stay dry. For example (and just for the sake of explanation) let's...

  • Folding Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Fit for 2 Inch Hitch on a 2013 Acura MDX
    The etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier, # e98874, is one of the top folding cargo carriers we offer. To determine if this cargo carrier will fit on your 2013 Acura MDX, we will want to take one important measurement. You will want to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole to the rear-most edge of your bumper. This will tell us how much clearance you need for the cargo carrier to clear your bumper. The etrailer Cargo Carrier, # e98847, measures 9-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch...

  • Will Cargo Carrier e98874 Fit a 2004 Isuzu Ascender XL and What Cargo Bag is Recommended
    The 20x60 Cargo Carrier, # e98874, will fit your 2004 Isuzu Ascender XL as long as it has a 2 inch by 2 inch receiver hitch. Also, make sure to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point at the rear of the vehicle. If it is less than 9-1/2 inches, this carrier will fit when folded up. For a cargo bag, I recommend the etrailer Cargo Bag, # e98990. It is a great bag that will fit this carrier and it is weather proof.

  • Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier and Compatible Cargo Bag Recommendations for a 2003 Ford Escape XLS
    In order to determine if the Hitch Cargo Carrier, # e98874, will fit on your 2003 Ford Escape XLS, you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If this distance is less than 9-1/2 inches, then the carrier will fit when in the folded up position. The recommended cargo bag is the etrailer Cargo Bag, # e98990, which is 40 inches x 20 inches x 20 inches and holds 9 cubic feet of gear.

  • Will etrailer Extra Large Cargo Bag # 988501 Fit Pro Series # PS1040100 31 X 47 Cargo Carrier
    The cargo bag you asked about, part # 988501, is an extra large bag that measures 59 inches long by 24 inches wide by 24 inches tall and has a cargo capacity of 20 cubic ft. Since this bag is flexible, it would fit on a carrier that measures 48 inches by 32 inches. However, the excess material of the bag may extend over the rails of the carrier, which could cause the cargo to be unsteady. The bag comes with 6 straps that help secure it to the rails of your cargo carrier. It is constructed...

  • What Material is the etrailer Cargo Bag Made of and What Size Carriers Will it Fit
    Depending on the height of the cargo carrier and how far away it is from the exhaust will determine on if the bag is in jeopardy or not. If the exhaust exits at a downward angle, there should not be any problem. But if it exits directly at the carrier, there could be problems if it is too close. The Extra Large Cargo Carrier Bag, # 988501, is made of very heavy duty PVC coated nylon ripstop material that is rainproof and heavily constructed. Under normal driving conditions,...

  • Is There Risk of Cargo Bag Catching Fire if Near Exhaust Pipes
    PVC cargo bags like the etrailer part # e98990 that you referenced when really close to exhaust pipes normally would only melt if they got too hot. Catching on fire would not be likely at all unless maybe you had something flammable in the bag. For situations like yours we normally recommend a carrier with a rise built into the shank to help get the platform above the exhaust pipes like the Reese part # 63153 which has a rise built into the shank of 2-1/2 inches.

  • Will etrailer Folding 20 X 60 Cargo Carrier Fit a 2007 Ford Expedition and What Bag is Recommended
    You will need to measure your Expedition to make sure there is clearance for folding. When the carrier is folded, there is 9-1/2 inches of clearance from the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier. If you have less than 9-1/2 from the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge of your bumper, the rack will make contact. Selecting a cargo bag will depend on how much you need to fit in it, and what size carrier you go with. The Extra Large Cargo Carrier bag, part # 988501,...

  • Cargo Carrier Bags for a Folding Cargo Carrier Desinged for 2 inch Trailer Hitches
    Both the Extra Large Cargo Carrier Bag, 20 cubic feet, part # 988501, and the etrailer Cargo Bag, 9 cubic feet, item # e98990, will work well with the 20x60 Folding Cargo Carrier, part # e98874. These bags have a soft bottom so they will fit inside the rails of the cargo carrier and then can be tied down with the attached tie down straps.

  • Will the Reese Cargo Carrier with Bag Installed Block/Interfere with Exhaust
    The 20x48 Reese Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # 6502 is an excellent option and it has a raised/extended shank to help keep your contents away from objects such as the exhaust so I do agree with your hypothesis. That said, this could vary so much from vehicle to vehicle it would be hard to give a definite yes/no answers. However, we do have the 24x60 Off Road Cargo Carrier part # e98874 which has a 2" rise in the shank and sits 19-1\2" away from the hitch pin hole when...

    I've used the etrailer cargo basket # e99054 on my Tahoe and I liked it a lot. It adds a good look all the while giving options to how long you want it to be. I would recommend getting the XL basket # e99054 as it fills up the roof which looks good and you fully utilize the space up on your roof. You would be surprised how much stuff you can get on top of your roof. I could fit basically everything I need for a week trip with multiple passengers. One thing I HIGHLY recommend is getting...

  • Masterbuilt Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch Receiver
    The Sportrack cargo carrier bag that you referenced has the external dimensions of 60 inches long by 19 inches wide and is 16 inches tall. Unfortunately we do not have a cargo carrier that is compatible with a 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver that can accommodate a cargo bag up to 60 inches long. If by offset you mean a rise in the shank of the cargo carrier the largest cargo carrier that has a rise in the 1-1/4 shank is the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18110.

  • Cargo Carrier For 2011 Honda Civic With Class l Hitch
    I did some research online for your 2011 Honda Civic, and found that the recommended tongue weight capacity per the owners manual is 100 lbs. This weight capacity would include the weight of the carrier and any cargo you plan to put on the carrier. We do not carry any Class l cargo carriers that have the folding feature. We do offer a few fixed carriers that may work for you. Due to your Civic using a Class l hitch, we do not carry any enclosed hitch mounted carriers that would work for...

  • Can Thule Transporter Enclosed Cargo Carrier Be used with a Class 1 Hitch on a 2009 Mazda 5
    The only hitches available for a 2009 Mazda 5 are Class I hitches. The receiver tube for a Class I is drilled differently and has a stop welded in it to prevent Class II accessories from being used. The hitch pin hole on a Class II shank will not line up with the hole on a Class I hitch. Though the weights are close, the carrier could exceed a Class I hitch capacity. Class I hitches are rated for 200 pounds tongue weight. The carrier weighs about 65 pounds and can carry 150 pounds of cargo...

  • Cargo Bag that Will Fit Curt Cargo Carrier 18145
    You would have to tuck it in a little but etrailer cargo bag # e98990 would be the best option for Curt cargo carrier # C18145. The inside dimensions of the carrier are 46-3/8 inches long and 17-9/16 inches front to back. The etrailer bag measures 40 x 20 inches. But it is flexible so you can just tuck it in. That will also help keep it stable.

It secures to the carrier with straps so even if the carrier was larger than the bag it would not come off the carrier as long as it was properly secured.

  • Measuring Rear Door Access Clearance With Hitch mounted Cargo Carrier 2011 Kia Soul
    The best way to tell how much clearance you will have for access to your rear cargo area is to take a couple measurements. I have attached a photo of the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18145 installed on the back of a vehicle. As the photo shows, the distance from the center of the hitch pin to the closest edge of the carrier is 6 inches. Since the height of the outside walls of the carrier are 6 inches, you can hold a straight edge vertically about 6 inches back from the hitch pin hole....

    The hitch mounted cargo carrier I recommend for use behind your Casita travel trailer is the Curt 20 x 48 Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch and 2 Inch Hitches # C18110. This cargo carrier offers a shank rise of 3-3/4 inches to help you maintain ground clearance behind the trailer. I recommend using a fixed cargo carrier, like the # C18110, over a tilting carrier at the back of your trailer. The solid shank of a fixed carrier is much better for use on a travel trailer due to the rougher ride...

The carrier has usable platform space of about 20 x 48 inches, and features an angled shank that increases the carrier's ground clearance by 3 inches. If you needed a cargo bag to protect your cargo from road gunk, we offer the # e98990 cargo bag that's 9 cubic feet of storage space.
