Cargo Carrier and Trailer Hitch for 2020 Kia Soul

Question:

Hi you all, I’m so confused!! I need an itemized list including cost $ of all the parts I need to have installed, an aluminum cargo carrier for a 2020 Kia Soul, including the hitch receiver. I’m a gal that knows nothing about this !!!! Oh for joy you say!!! I have a new car and it is always a mess with plants, tools, jugs of water and my blower because I volunteer with Morro Bay In Bloom to help make our town pretty with flowers but am tired of not enjoying a nice new car!!!! So that’s why I want to get a cargo carrier that is aluminum so I can take it off and on with ease and actually take other people around for joy rides without having to unload my car and clean it up first!!!! It’s a pain to say the least!!!! I like your 60’x22foot trailer cargo carrier for 2” hitches aluminum 500lbs e98991 but I understand I have to get a 1 1/4” hitch only for my 2020 Kia since the design changed this year! Sooooo would someone be willing to make a list of all I need and the grand TOTAL it will cost me so I can see if I can even afford to do this!!!!! Thank you so much.... I have spent so much time looking on line and calling a local Kia dealer, but it sounded like they had never done this before!! I will call down to Kirby Kia in Ventura after I hear from you to see what they can tell me! Well thank you so much for all your time. Really look forward to hear from you!

First thing you need is a hitch installed on your 2020 Kia Soul so you can carry a hitch cargo carrier. For that the Curt part # C67FR that you referenced is the way to go.

Now since this is the smaller hitch size you do need a cargo carrier designed for it like the Reese part # 63155 which we had the chance to install on a 2017 Kia Soul and we found it worked great. Check out the install video link I attached on this page to see more. This and the hitch would be all you'd need!

Question:

Hi again, Can this cargo carrier be used on a 2020 Kia Soul? Can it be easily taken on and off? I will want to be able to take this off with a pin and clip. Does it weigh 30lbs? The size and price is right vs #59507 21”x55 Rola cargo carrier for 1 1/4” steel 300lbs for.... Yikes!!!! Thanks for your answers.... greatly appreciated!!

The Rola carrier is no longer available. You could use part # 63155 in the hitch I mentioned for your 2020 Kia Soul. It weighs 44 lbs and is easily removable when not in use.

Thanks for the kind words! As soon as we're able to get a 2020 Kia Soul in for a hitch install we'll definitely make some different videos. I'm really sorry we don't have them available at the moment, but please do let us know about your experience after using these components for a bit.

@ChrisR Thank you Chris! I am so impressed with etrailer’s communication and videos! I think my items will be arriving around Thurs May 18! I was going to wait to have the hitch installed at my 5,000 mile Kia Soul first maintenance check up in around 3 weeks. However, maybe I’ll just have it done locally cuz I’ll be too excited to wait!!!! I’ll definitely keep you posted through Kira. Take care and be safe
