Recommended Cargo Carrier for Northwood Arctic Fox North Fork Travel Trailer With 5" Square Bumper


Hi. I was curious if there are brackets available for a 5” square tube bumper? Thanks

While the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for RV Bumper, # e99049 and its variations of 24x40, # e99050 and 24x64, # e83YR will not fit a 5" by 5" tube RV bumper, I have a solution for you.

I recommend the Mount-n-Lock HiLoHitch for 5" RV Bumpers, # MNT37FR and then use 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches, # e98874 with tilt and fold up feature. The add benefit of this route is that you can easily move the cargo carrier from use on your RV to your tow vehicle when needed. The etrailer cargo carriers come with a stop collar at no extra charge. This automatically aligns the pin holes on the shank and your hitch every time you install the carrier preventing you from having to get on your hands and knees to check for pinhole alignment.

There are multiple RV bumper mounted hitches available. I prefer the Mount-n-Lock HiLoHitch options, # MNT47FR for 4" bumpers and # MNT37FR for 5", # MO64VR for 6" due to their high quality fit and finish along with the design of pressure plate that locks it in place. The retention bolt applies pressure to a plate that more widely distributes the force for greater security and less movement.

Note: Bumper weight capacities vary by manufacturer. Please be sure to verify the weight capacity of your bumper with the manufacturer prior to loading.
