Review of the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2012 Toyota Prius


Today, on our 2012 Toyota Prius, we'll be doing a test fit of the Curt Cargo Carrier. That's Part Number C18110. We've already got it loaded up on the Prius, just to give you a good idea of what it's going to look like. It's dimensions are 20x48. It has a 300 pound weight capacity. It has a mesh floor, so dirt and debris can easily fall through.

There are plenty of tie down points for our cargo. Let's go ahead and take a few measurements. Overall, to the Prius, we've added about 29 inches. The distance between our Prius bumper, and the carrier is going to be about 9 inches. I'd like to point out right here, that the shank is angled upward, which is going to give us more ground clearance here at the back. That measures about 14 inches there.

The trunk, we have no break over point here. We can feel to stack our cargo as high as we want. You just want to be sure to do it in a safely manner, so it's not going to make contact. Our exhaust on our Prius exits on our passenger side, about 16 1/2 inches away. It's probably not going to hurt anything that we're going to carry on the back of our carrier, so feel free to stack your cargo on either side, since that exhaust points downward. Our carrier can be used for either 1 1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches.

We've got it set up for the 1 1/4 receiver here, today. It also includes an anti rattle bolt and clip. The nice thing about the anti rattle bolt is it's going to help reduce a lot of play in the rattle, within our receiver and our carrier, as you can see here. No rattle at all. That's going to complete our test fit of the Curt Cargo Carrier, Part Number C18110, on our 2012 Toyota Prius. This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom.

This shows side do side action such as turning corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, pot holes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all, the solid speed bumps. This shows up and down action such as driving through a parking lot, or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway.
