Gain the extra room you need with a hitch mount cargo basket that carries up to 500 lbs. This brawny steel cargo carrier is available in two sizes, and the 5-1/2" side rails provide convenient tie down points to keep your items secure.

Crammed trunks and cluttered truck beds limit your cargo capacity. The receiver hitch basket allows you to extend your cargo space to the hitch of your vehicle. This cargo basket mounts to your Class 3 or 4 receiver hitch for added storage space. The sturdy and strong basket cargo carrier comes in two sizes: 60" and 48" wide, both have a hefty 500 pound carrying capacity. Each receiver hitch basket comes disassembled, and with a 10mm and 17mm wrench and socket, assembly is quick and easy.

Now you can load up duffel bags, buckets, farm supplies, or even deer. The 5-1/2" side rails ensure your cargo will remain on the receiver hitch basket while providing a handy place to attach cargo nets or bungee straps. Each cargo basket comes with reflective strips to ensure night-time visibility and a one year warranty. Four different sizes of cargo nets are available to secure all your loads (sold separately).

5 Stars Perfect solution

Victor W. from TN wrote (September 04, 2016):

purchased carrier to travel to FL in Jeep Liberty, carried 4 lawn chairs, 13'x13' awning and two large suitcases. I also purchased the stabilizing attachment, no wiggle no sound. I purchase the smaller size so the items being carried did not interfere with my tail lights. It worked perfectly, worth every penny

4 Stars Just what I expected

Steve from CT wrote (August 11, 2016):

Really, goes together in minutes. The 48" size with the cargo bag are a perfect fit for a Honda Pilot. Only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars is that I wish it had safety reflectors and not just the tape. I'll add them myself easy enough.

5 Stars Nice rack!

It'll work great for hauling extra gear on road trips. Much easier than the roof rack on my FJ.

5 Stars Basket Cargo Carrier

Ed from GA wrote (August 28, 2015):

Excellent product. Extremely easy assembly - minutes to assemble. Fits receiver hitch securely and without any slack or sway. Strong heavy duty construction.

5 Stars Should be a nice addition for gear hauling

Jeff from NH wrote (December 26, 2014):

I received this as a Christmas gift ( the boy shows promise!) and it seems like just the ticket. The assembly was easy and it fit the hitch perfectly. I'm not sure I'd load this with 500 lbs ( I drive a 2014 Subaru Forester) but it would be fine for a lot of the extra gear I find myself hauling on kayaking trips or trips to camp. It should be easier to load deer into than the back of the car as well although I'd want to ensure it was well covered and tied in. I would like to see built in protection from the vehicle exhaust ( a friend ruined his cooler by placing it behind the exhaust pipe) but that protection should be easy enough tobuild myself. Nice, well made product that should last me longer than my vehicle will.

5 Stars Excellent choice for Animal Control Vehicle.

Judy Burrier Animal Control Officer from OH wrote (September 25, 2014):

I purchased this item for my new Animal Control Vehicle. Because as an Animal Control Officer in a city that also provides some trapping services to our residents, I wanted a cargo carrier to put the traps on without it being inside the actually animal control vehicle. I also needed something that would hold up well and of good quality to keep the traps securely in the cargo basket but also a cargo carrier that was easily removed when it was not in use. I found this carrier to be an EXCELLENT choice for the purpose which I bought it for. The cages stay in the carrier securely without any fear of them popping out or slipping out. Being a female officer it is also carrier is not only light weight but easily attached and removed from my truck. The extra distance behind the truck is simple to maneuver without fear of hitting something backing up and as always ease of removal is excellent. I am extremely happy with this product.
