Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a 2004 Ford Explorer with a 1-1/4 Inch Factory Trailer Hitch


It looks like my Explorer has a 1 and 1/4 inch trailer hitch so I will need a different model. Can you suggest one that is similar Close to the same amount of square footage? Thanks for your response!


Expert Reply:

All of the cargo carriers for 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches are fixed carriers, non-folding, and slightly smaller than models that fit 2 inch hitches. Pro Series carrier # PS1040300 is close to the same size at 20 inches by 60 inches. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

One of the great things about this carrier is that you can add a light kit, # 6504, if the cargo happens to block the lights on your 2004 Ford Explorer. You just need to have a functioning 4-Way trailer connector such as # 18252 if your Explorer does not already have one.

Because the carrier does not tilt down or swing off to the side you will likely not be able to open the rear door on the Explorer while the carrier is loaded.
