5 Stars Cargo Carrier for Generator for My Fifth Wheel

Lloyd from CA wrote (February 09, 2017):

This is a well designed cargo carrier, especially the steel hitch mount with the 6 arms for support. This is why I bought this carrier. Very easy to assemble. I mounted my Champion Generator and a 30lb Propane Tank to this carrier.

5 Stars Vacation Bound!

Glen from SC wrote (June 06, 2016):

It gives us much more room in our vehicle for comfort, because the items we usually carry on vacation can now be carried in our new cargo carrier with cover.

5 Stars Seems very strong and sturdy

Stephanie from IN wrote (August 06, 2015):

To preface, we haven't yet used this to haul anything. However, after connecting it to the hitch, it appears to be very strong and steady. After reading some other reviews for cargo carriers, I was worried about shaking and wobbling. But this fits snugly and doesn't budge!

5 Stars Great Buy

Dennis from TX wrote (August 02, 2015):

5 Stars Cargo carrier

Ron from SD wrote (July 10, 2015):

Haven't had it on the vehicle yet but put it together last night, with my wife's assistance, and we didn't even get upset with each other. Pretty good instructions except it didn't say anything about if you should put brackets on the inside or outside, ended up putting them on the inside as this helped the stability & rigidity of the unit, also could have mounted the bottom to the base before putting the cage together as some of the mounting bolts easier to get to. Seems like a great product.

5 Stars Aluminum Basket Cargo Carrier

Roger Young from FL wrote (June 24, 2015):

The rack was easy to assemble with a little time. Arrived with the shipping package damaged but all parts were there and the carrier only had minor damage that will not affect the performance. Used to carry generator on front of pick up for truck camper. Appears to be sturdy enough for the job.

5 Stars Light weight / easy to install

5 Stars Awesome Rack

Chris from OH wrote (May 20, 2015):

This rack was fairly easy to assemble & seems very sturdy. The hitch anti-shake plate makes this rack perfect to use on the back of my travel trailer.

5 Stars ALuminium Cargo Carrier

Jim Coyle from IL wrote (May 12, 2015):

Love the carrier. It is light yet the steel reinforced mounting frame is solid as a rock. I ordered this and got free shipping and it actually showed up the next day. Great company and equipment. I could not be more pleased

5 Stars Great carrier

Kelly from WV wrote (March 13, 2015):

Lightweight; durable; easy to assemble, just requires a little time and patience. I like the steel support on this carrier, which is why I purchased it over one of the less expensive ones on ebay.

4 Stars 500# Aluminum Cargo Carrier

JIm from PA wrote (January 04, 2015):

This carrier went together well and appears to be very durable and strong. I did not like the fit of the anti tilt bracket on my 2014 Jeep hitch but with this unit being a one size fits all, It will suffice.

5 Stars Great solution for generator storage on my travel trailer

Anthony from AZ wrote (December 18, 2014):

Easy to assemble and use. Fits my Generator perfectly. Lightweight and sturdy!

5 Stars Nice carrier

Bob from TX wrote (December 05, 2014):

The carrier was delivered quickly and was easy to assemble. It is light, strong, and not as big as the others we found so it is a great combination. I would purchase this item again and will suggest it to anyone who does not want a huge carrier.

5 Stars good quality product

Rich from IL wrote (November 14, 2014):

This cargo carrier was just as advertised. I bought this model because of the steel backbone. It really strengthens the product. Assembly was easy and took about an hour. Shipping was really fast. Haven't used it yet but it seems like it will work well. It's the best quality of the carriers I saw online.

4 Stars Luggage Carrier

William. C. Godward from WY wrote (September 20, 2014):

I really like the ruggedness of this product, a little hard to handle in the shipping box which is understandable due to size. Easy to assemble, measurements are correct and as stated. Arrived as promised, and in excellent shape. I should also be able to use as a carrier rack for hunting on my other 4x4.
