Hitch Cargo Carriers for Use on 2017 Audi Q7 with Tow Package


What is the best cargo basket we have the towing package for our 2017 Q7 Audi that folds up toward vehicle.


Expert Reply:

Based on my research the Audi Q7 tow package includes a 2-inch hitch receiver like Draw-Tite # 76076 but it is simple enough to measure to confirm. Please refer to the linked article for help in confirming the size of the square receiver opening on your hitch.

We offer both fixed and folding flat cargo carriers for 2-inch hitches and all can be seen on the linked page. The second linked article will show you how to measure your hitch/vehicle to determine how much clearance you need (from the hitch pin hole) for any given carrier to fit well without making contact with the vehicle. You can also check the Audi hitch's safety sticker for its rated weight capacity. Note this has to be enough for the combined weight of the carrier you choose plus the weight of the cargo you load on it. There is no sense buying a carrier that can hold more than your hitch.

The Curt folding cargo basket # C18151 offers a 500-lb weight capacity, has an inside deck of 60-1/8 wide x 23-3/4 deep x 5-1/2 tall and it weights 70-lbs empty. When folded up it will require 10-inches of clearance from the hitch pin hole to avoid contact with the vehicle.

Please feel free to tell me your hitch capacity and your clearance requirement and I will be glad to offer more specific recommendations.
