The etrailer Cargo Carrier part #e98874 that you referenced does have a 500 lb capacity, even with it's foldable hinge that allows it to fold up against the back of your vehicle when not in use.

To determine if this rack would fold up and clear the rear bumper of your Honda Pilot you will need to take one measurement. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper. If the measurement you took was less than 9-1/2 inches this carrier would fit folded up without interference.

I attached a review video for this carrier on a 2011 Honda Pilot for you to check out as well.
