Folding storage aids in maneuverability when backing up in larger vehicles. The folding basket features a pull-pin design to conveniently fold up and out of your way.

Steel mesh bottom and sturdy 5-1/2" tall side rails found on the cargo basket, protect your luggage or cargo from most objects. Each cargo basket comes disassembled, and with a 10mm and 17mm wrench and socket, assembly is quick and easy. Folding baskets feature a one year warranty.

Vehicle Hauling Capacity: Your hauling weight may be limited by your vehicle's suspension to carry a load

This was a snap to assemble and fit to my vehicle. The only thing I was not happy with is that it did not come with the hitch pin. Overall it seems to be of good quality.

I had a time sensitive order that needed to be delivered before the start of a camping trip. Arrival of the item ordered on the delivery date that was PROMISED was the most important thing to me. Discount Ramps said item would be delivered on Thursday and it arrived on Thursday as promised. Besides the prompt delivery of my purchases, I am pleased to say that the both the storage rack and waterproof bag designed to fit were both of the highest quality. Good customer service over the phone with the order, great value for the quality of product purchased, and timely delivery. I will definitely use Discount Ramps in the future and would recommend them to others. P.H.
5 StarsPerfect for carrying additional cargo.

This was a Christmas gift for my husband and as I've never purchased an item like this before, I was a bit nervous about making the right choice. I was thrilled when it arrived. Sturdy and well-built, my husband was very impressed. I would definitely come back to Discount Ramps for additional products. Thanks for making this a successful purchase for the holidays!
5 StarsCame back for more!

This is my 2nd cargo carrier. This time I upgraded to one with the side rails and folding feature.
Smart decision! I love these things. I just about wore my first one out :) I can haul the "clean" stuff in
the back of my SUV, and the "dirty" stuff (recycling, trash, etc) outside on my carrier. No more carrying gas
containers for my lawnmower inside either. My first one is 15 years old and except for missing some paint, it stills works great! :)
5 StarsWe are VERY pleased!!

I purchased this item for my wife for mothers day. It was delivered really quickly and with no mess ups. We travel quiet a bit and this will really be handy for her to pack her vehicle. We set it up today and it is very nice looking, very sturdy, and easy to assemble. My 13 year old son put it on for me. It is not to heavy so it is easy to put on and to take off. We are really excited to take it on our big family trip next week. We will be ordering from Discount Ramps again.
