Is There a Hitch Riser to Prevent Cargo Carrier from Bottoming-Out


Hi, I use a 2 hitch cargo basket on my Honda Odyssey but it bottoms out sometimes so I was trying to find something that will raise it. Will something like this work: Some info says its only for towing but I wasnt sure. Thanks!


Expert Reply:

I do have options for you but using receiver adapters reduces capacity such as the Thule Hitch Extender for 2" Receivers part # TH55JV which could provide an additional 2-1/4" of ground clearance but will also reduce carrying capacity by 50%. Instead, I recommend a cargo carrier with a built-in rise like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # e98874 which is better suited for low ground clearance vehicles as the shank has a built-in 2" rise without sacrificing capacity.

Please note, high-low adapters are designed for flat-towing so we do not recommend using them for cargo carriers.
