What Cargo Carrier and Hitch do You Recommend for My 2015 Smart fortwo?


Im looking for the carrier basket that attaches to the bolts on the back bumper of my 2015 Smart fortwo. Its great a product that you can provide?

We definitely have what you are looking for. While we do not have a hitch that can attach directly to your bumper of your 2015 Smart fortwo, we do have a hitch-mounted carrier that you can use after the hitch is installed. For the hitch, that is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11020. Not only does this hitch provide you with 200 pounds of maximum tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds of gross towing weight capacity, it also comes with a premium gloss outer coating over the base powder coat to give you ultimate protection against rust and corrosion. As far as installation, it comes with all hardware required for a complete bolt-on installation.

As far as the basket/cargo carrier, I recommend the 20x47 Reese Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # 63155. With the Reese basket, you will be able to utilize the entire 200 pounds of tongue weight offered by your hitch receiver. You can also add the optional taillight kit # 20174. If you need a wiring harness for your vehicle to use the light kit, I recommend the splice-in kit # C58044. For a great locking hitch pin that offers anti-rattle benefits, I recommend the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Lock # SHP2082.

As with all cargo carriers, I recommend confirming with your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure your Smart car can accommodate the weight you wish to transport.
