Even with the roomiest of vehicles, packing the car for a long trip can quickly turn into a frustrating game of Tetris. 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 a 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 introduces the mesh, bolt-together, tray-style cargo carrier. This carrier features a lightweight aluminum design to put less strain on your vehicle and resist rust and corrosion from outdoor exposure. It comes with a 2" x 2" shank and can hold up to 500 lbs. of cargo. This particular model also comes with a folding shank to allow the cargo carrier to be folded up when not in use. It offers a total storage area of 60" x 20".
CURT tray-style cargo carriers are versatile and simple to use. They have holes along the outer edge for mounting a cargo net or bungees, making it easy to keep items secure, and they provide plenty of space to make your trip more comfortable, no matter where you are headed. Whether you prefer the hitch-mounted carrier or the roof rack option, CURT has cargo management solutions to meet your needs.

#18100 Aluminum AND STEEL cargo carrier Review
First and foremost, this is a product of China. The only mention of origin is on the box, so you are not aware it is Chinese until delivery. Fit and finish is typical of Chinese mfg., meaning poor fit and finish. Holes were not the right size to insert the carriage bolts into, (too small)..etc. All the bracing and 2" tube are made of steel. No steel parts are mentioned anywhere I could find except in the instructions. Other reviewers noted the steel parts rusted quickly. I have just assembled the one I bought, but noting the paint quality, I fear rusting will occur soon. I would not have purchased this unit if I knew it came from China. If it does not perform as stated, it will be returned.
