How to Reduce Play for a Cargo Carrier on a 2015 Toyota Venza With a Class III Trailer Hitch


I am looking for a folding rear cargo carrier, preferably an aluminum one, but am concerned on your videos and customer reviews about the wobble on these on the rear of the hitch. Are they all like that? How does one resolve that? I have a 2015 Toyota Venza, with a Class-III hitch.

The only folding aluminum cargo carrier option that we currently have available for your 2015 Toyota Venza is the Curt 19x60 Carrier # C18100. This carrier has a weight capacity of 500 lbs but you will want to check the Tongue Weight capacity of your Class III trailer hitch and the Tongue Weight of your Venza in your owner's manual to see if they can handle that much weight.

The Pin and Clip # PC3 is not included with the cargo carrier hitch, however, if you are wanting to eliminate some of the play of the cargo carrier I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232.

Most accessories that you use in a trailer hitch will have some play since there is usually a fraction of some space to make installation easier. An anti-rattle hitch receiver lock helps to tighten down and secure the accessory a little better inside the hitch. It might not completely eliminate the play, but it sure will help.

You might also want to get some sort of equipment to help secure your cargo to the carrier as well. The Bungee Cords in an assortment of lengths like # EM06655 18", # EM06656 24", # EM06658 36", and/or # EM06668 42", would be an excellent place to start.

I have attached some demonstration videos for you to review as well.
