Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Cargo Carrier I bought this cargo basket for many of the reasons other reviewers bought it. I loved the fact that it had the high side walls. I purchased this item over a year ago now, have used it only twice, and it is already falling apart. There is rust everywhere even though I stored it in a dry place. I had to apply a rust remover, re-paint and clear coat. No matter how must rust remover I put on the bolts, the rust always immediately comes back. I will replace the bolts myself. Additionally, the springs have fully seized- tip, oil them regularly. Great design but poor quality. I wish I could get my money back or store credit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as advertised! I purchased this cargo carrier just over a month ago and it has been a wonderful addition to my sprinter van. It is an amazing space saver and is well put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great luggage carrier! Bought this for a family vacation and was worried it wouldn't withstand all of our luggage. We ordered it online and it arrived really quickly. It was pretty easy to put together but definitely need a ratchet set. You also need the rod to attach it to your hitch (which isn't identified in the product description but u won't get far without it!!). Good news is it's standard size and we found one with a lock. Carrier is super strong and stores really well with the collapsible sides. Will get lots of use out of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful for Extra luggage! This cargo carrier is a great addition to my Truck. It came very handy when I didn’t have a lot of space left in my Trunk. Pretty durable steal frame and works great for luggage and other similar items. Holds 500 pounds. And a great price! In comparison to other items out there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Box If..... This box is great construction but we added a top to ours and bolted the sides down. In the kit it comes with quick clips but they are weak and makes it rattle going down the roads other wise great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hitch for motorhome Very easy to assemble and appears to be well built. Easy to fold up for storage when not in use. I purchased this to carry firewood at the rear of my Class A motorhome so I have lots of ground clearance and fits easily into the existing receiver on the trailer hitch. My main reasons for choosing this one over others is the weight it will carry and the overall dimensions. You can pack a lot of firewood into with no problem. Very happy and have already recommended it to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Research before investing in this product Poor quality and construction.. Used the product one time for a camping trip, carrier had much less than 500 lbs and by the time I returned one of the undermount support brackets were bent which leaves little structural integrity to the base. On the side that would be the furthest from the vehicle the bottom pins that push through the side walls allowing the unit to fold, are no longer protruding through the side walls. In addition along that same side the pin that connects the 2 halves at the top of the rear wall has also been pulled out and is precariously hanging on. Other than for the purpose of packaging the base of the carrier is delivered in 2 halves which makes no sense for a product expected to carry 500lbs. I would do your research and think about your intended use of the product before investing in it.

Will this work for my 2010 Honda civic Honda coupe? I wanna use for luggage to travel to nova Scotia from Hamilton. If not this one can you recommend one?

Asked by: Suzy
I had it with a converter to a 2 inch on my Chevy Orlando which is a crossover. It was sticking out and would touch the ground at times. I changed my car to a minivan and will try it again this summer. Built sturdy.

Does the reciever go all the way thru the bottom? I want to attach my bicycle rack, which currently fits into my trailer hitch, behind this carrier. So..vehicle then carrier, then bike rack...

Asked by: Geoff
We do not recommend attaching our bike rack to our carrier.

For the folding Trailer hitch, is it a 2 inch for a reg car/truck hitch? Thank you, Paul

Asked by: Paul
Yes, it is a two inch for a reg car/Truck. My hitch was smaller so I bought and adaptor. It worked just fine. I bought also a Cargo Bag so everything is protected from dust and rain. I have also added some safety reflectors. I love the Cargo Carrier. Very easy to install. A good buy.

1. How long is the hitch? 2. Can I use a hitch extender?

Asked by: Mike
It's about 10 inches to the front edge of the carrier base from the leading edge of the hitch channel tongue. I have ours on the back of a 31 ft Motorhome. Lots of of clearance. I recommended one to my daughter who has a Ford Edge.

Are the sides affixed to the bottom or do they have to be fastened to keep someone from just lifting it off and taking your luggage. Also..... do I need tail lights with this if I put in a solid 60”x24”x24” cargo bag?

Asked by: Jeff
This has to be assembled with all side to be affixed, and depending on your vehicle size will determine if the lights will be visible.
