Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier For 2003 Volkswagen GTI  


Hi. I am looking for a way to carry more things for my detailing business while using my GTI. I would need something to hold an EU3000i which weighs around 85lbs. This could either be a small trailer or a hitch cargo, if that is possible with the weight and size. Please let me know if there are any configurations or such. Thanks!

We have just what you are looking for.

If you do not already have a trailer hitch on your 2003 GTI I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # C11066. This is a Class l trailer hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening.

Per Curt all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt.

The cargo carrier I recommend for your Power Inverter is the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18110. The inside dimensions of this carrier are 47-11/16 inches long x 19-1/2 inches wide. The carrier has weight capacity of 300-lbs. The carrier weighs 30-lbs.

To secure the inverter in the carrier I recommend using tie-downs like part # IMF103745-86. These are retractable ratchet straps with hooks.
