Review of the Reese Reese Cargo Carrier

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Reese Explorer Cargo Carrier for 1 and 1/4 inch hitches, part number 63155.This cargo carrier is gonna allow you to carry more gear in your vehicle or get gear outside your vehicle so you've got more room for passengers. The steel bars and braces provide plenty of tie down points so you can make sure your gear is secure no matter what you've got in here. The inside dimensions are gonna measure 47 and 7/8th inches long, 20 inches wide, and 5 and 1/2 inches tall. It is a 3 inch raised shank and measures 11 inches from the cargo basket to the center of the hitch pinhole.It features a mesh floor which is easy to keep clean, and if you're driving through stormy weather, you don't have to worry about it pooling up water. If you're worried about your gear stacking up and blocking your taillights and brake lights, a light kit is available that installs in the brackets located on each rear side.

You can get this with part number, 20174. If you don't have a four pole flag connector to wire up your lights, you can just opt for a reflector kit using part number 59531. If you're considering some tie down options, you can use bungee cords or straps, there's plenty to be found here at There's also a cargo net available with part number 7330.It is a sturdy steel construction, which lead to it's 300 pound carrying capacity, and it features a black powder coat finish to help reduce rust and corrosion. A hitch pin and clip is not included with the carrier, but you can pick one up here at with part number PC2.If you're comparing this to cargo carriers of similar weight and size ratings on our website, Surco has a similar model.

With the Reese's 3 inch shank rise, you're going to get a better ground clearance over the Surco, which has no shank rise. Both have light kits available for them, but the Reese has dedicated locations to install your lights.Customer Slick says, "Just right!!! It works great." Check out some pics from DH's Corvette.This is a simple, sturdy, straight forward cargo carrier. One of the things that I like about it is that option for the lights because it is about the width of most vehicles, so if you are stackin' up that gear, it may block the lights on both sides. Having that option can really add to the safety and features of this.Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slawlum 00:02:17. This is going to show us the side to side action which simulates the turning corners or evasive maneuvers.

Once we get to the alternate speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action, this will simulate hanging a curb, or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway.That completes our look at the Reese Explore Cargo Carrier for 1 and 1/4 inch hitches.
