About This Product

CURT cargo carriers are a simple yet effective solution for maximizing the storage area of your vehicle. The advantage of a hitch-mounted cargo carrier is that it can be mounted on the rear or front end of the vehicle as long as the vehicle is properly equipped with the right receiver hitch. Mounting a cargo carrier in the front opens up the rear receiver hitch for towing a trailer or adding a second carrier or bike rack if needed. The hitch-mounted design also makes installation quick and easy. CURT basket cargo carriers feature a strong bolt-together design and are made with heavy-duty carbide steel and a tubular construction for increased strength. One of the advantages of the basket style is its 6 in. H sides. These provide extra security and peace of mind during travel. This particular basket cargo carrier features a 2 in. x 2 in. bent, folding shank to provide more ground clearance and to fold up and out of the way whenever necessary. It also comes with a strong mesh platform to accept up 500 lbs. of cargo and has a durable black powder coat finish to resist rust, scratches and UV damage. To help keep your cargo even more secure during travel, this trailer hitch carrier comes with an elastic cargo net fitted with hooks for easy installation and a dependable hold.


  • Heavy-duty, all-steel tubular construction
  • 6 in. tall sides for added security
  • 2 in. folding shank
  • 1-year limited warranty
  • Secures cargo from dislodging during travel
  • Offers a perfect fit for cargo carriers 6 in. W
  • Provides more reliable security compared to bungee cords

Questions & Answers

Q:With the cage sticking out so far from the vehicle, will the torsion of a 300# load put too much strain on the receiver or bend the cage. My other 500# capacity carrier had the cage braces underneath bend when loading a 300# item because of the torsion.

Answer This Question

A:  Yes, a 300# load could bend not only the carrier but possibly the hitch or damage the vehicle on its own, we recommend using a support strap of some kind. If you have additional questions please call our product support 877-287-8634

Q:I have a 2023 Bronco with the 35" spare on the back. If I did not intend to fold it, would it work as-is? Or do I still need an extender to clear the tire?

Q:will this work on atv

Answer This Question

A:  Sorry, I have no idea. It's a standard auto box trailer tongue so it will depend on the size of the ATX tongue. You may also want to consider how it moves the centre of gravity towards the rear which will affect your steering on an atv because they are by nature a lot lighter int he front than a car.

    A:  This alone is heavy. It may weigh to much for an ATV

      A:  If your hitch matches, I guess. Check the dimensions, and it doesn't seem like it is designed to handle bottoming out. It's a nice little trailer, though

      by|Aug 7, 2023

        A:  I believe that this would be to wide for your ATV. I’m sure there is one made for an ATV but I would not use this one! 

        by|Aug 7, 2023

          A:  I don't know for sure, but I would think it is too bulky and heavy. It bounces a bit.

          by|Aug 6, 2023

            A:  I suppose, as long as you have the 2" hitch. It's heavy, and once loaded with stuff, could have the potential of flipping the front end of the ATV up in the air.

                    Subaru Crosstrek 2017
                    Recommended. Purchased because we are running out of space in our Subaru Crosstrek 2017. The assembly and install was fairly easy. I used a socket wrench and adjustable to tighten bolts. Torque ratings are provided in the instructions. My maximum tongue weight is 150 lbs. so after substracting the basket weight, my maximim loading was 80 lbs. I secured it from bouncing around with an anti-rattle hitch tightener stabilizer. Important to mention that the basket does sit back a bit to avoid obstructing the rear door. Careful backing up. The assembly feels sturdy. Does not stick out the sides. I did scrape it a few times while driving over dips because I loaded the car up to the brim. Nothing I can’t fix with a file and some Rust-Oleum. I recommend buying a locking pin.

                        I purchased this carrier for road trip. It was easy to assemble. Total weight in carrier was about 100 lbs although capacity was more then that. It was no problem driving in narrow corner local drive. Very satisfied.

                            This is a large heavy duty solid cargo carrier. I used over thanksgiving weekend and it performed well. Love the higher sides. I pulled up beside another car that had a cargo carrier also . It was much smaller and seemed flimsy. Well worth the extra money to have peace of mind knowing that when you are doing 75 mph on the interstates this will not bounce all over. The hinge is a nice surprise and I have been keeping it on my hitch folded up. I can get between the car and carrier to access rear window when it is folded and no problem raising hatch when its extended. Pretty easy to put together.

                            Curt Cargo Carrier
                            Extremely easy to assemble. This cargo carrier supports a 200 pound predator generator from Harbor Freight. You see reviews of people saying. WELL!! One side is starting to sag. Yeah! Because your not distributing the weight! You need to center you load ( Generator ) Common sense. However! If you buy wheels for your generator. The gen will not fit. Be sure wheels are off. Or don't even buy the wheels

                            The carrier is sturdy and strong. It also extends out from our SUV so it is clear of the exhaust pipes and allows us to open the hatch. We used the carrier also as a seat for our son's so they could watch fireworks while others could view from the hatch location.
