Haul up to 500 lbs of cargo and gear utilizing your vehicle's 2" Class III or IV hitch with the cargo carrier. You'll now be able to transport coolers, gas cans, tools, firewood and various other items that you didn't have room for in your vehicle before. The basket design has 5" high rails and openings ideal for a cargo net or tie down straps to secure down cargo. Bring along even more gear on your next trip with the hitch mounted cargo carrier.
The cargo hitch carrier has a huge 500 lb weight capacity for hauling coolers, boxes, tools, firewood, and many other belongings you may not be able to fit into your vehicle. The carrier has a "basket" structure which includes a usable 48" x 18-1/4" x 5" steel mesh surface, 5" steel tube rails, and a heavy duty 2" steel hitch tube which fits into your hitch receiver providing primary support for the cargo carrier. The side rails also feature holes for securing your gear with a cargo net. Overall dimensions of the basket cargo carrier are 50" x 20" x 6". A glossy black powder coat covers the carrier and hosts a suitable defense from rust, road grime, and outdoor elements.
To install, just slide the main support tube into your trailer hitch receiver and insert a hitch pin to keep the basket from sliding out during travel. The carrier only weighs 42 lbs making installation only a one person job. (A hitch pin is NOT included but can be purchased separately.) This style of cargo carrier will work with 2", class III or greater hitch receivers. Trailer hitch receivers recessed up to 6-1/2" can use this carrier too! Optional 1-1/4"-2" adapters are available to allow the carrier to work in class II receivers. Included with the cargo hitch carrier is a 1 year warranty!
It arrived and the box was really damaged. Inside, the product was fine except for a missing nut and washers. I have contacted customer service and we will see how they do. Other than that, the product was fine and works quite well. I have a big trip planned and we will see how it holds up.
Very well manufactured product. Light weight easy to install and remove. Finished assembly took less than 2 minutes, very easy. Took care of stowing gear inside of vehicle that is already cramped for space. Easy to store when not in use.
