Have yet to use for a trip to Montana. Sets up great. Only issue, not with carrier, is adapting to a Class I hitch.

Heidi B.

It looks of good quality. It is very sturdy and spacious. The only thing I did not like so much were the securing pins on each corner. They look a little flimsy.

Anonymous customer

Purchased a class 3 hitch from u-haul and ordered the basket at the same time. Basket arm would not go into receiver until I ground the receiver down. Spent about 1/2 hour on this.

How low does this hang to the ground if used in a hitch on a 2003 Cavalier?

–Jason P 12/17/2019 6:41:05 PM

Hi, Jason! Unfortunately, this carrier is not recommended for a 2003 Cavalier. Please visit or contact your local U-Haul Center to learn about available options. Thank you!

can I open my rear hatch on kia sportage with this on?

–janet 10/17/2019 2:04:14 PM

Hi, Janet! The rear of the vehicle will not fully open when the Carpod Carrier is attached and is holding cargo. If the carrier is empty, you can fold the walls in a way that will allow for access to the rear of the vehicle. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 10/18/2019 8:34:01 AM

Hello, what is the difference between this unit and the Carpod Fold up Hitch Cargo Carrier With 4” Rise? Thanks!

–Mike 9/8/2019 3:48:14 AM

Hello, Mike! The main difference between the two carriers is the rise, which provides ground clearance if your vehicle sits closer to the ground. Other than that, the products are essentially identical. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 9/10/2019 2:01:10 PM

How long does it usually take to do the actual installation of the hitch receiver?

–Dominique 5/14/2019 10:52:29 AM

Hello, Dominique! Installation times can vary based on the vehicle. Please contact your local U-Haul Hitch Center to learn more about installation rates and the time needed for installation. Thank you!

–Savannah 5/15/2019 7:58:32 AM

Does every side fold up?

–Pablo 4/10/2019 6:23:58 AM

Hello, Pablo! Yes, each of the sidewalls of the Carpod Carrier folds flat for compact storage. Thanks for asking!

–Savannah 4/10/2019 11:50:37 AM

Do you think this carrier would be able to accommodate an electric wheelchair that weighs approx. 140 lbs? Also, do the sides fold down or can you take them off?

–Roy Wiprud 7/30/2018 4:55:19 PM

Can this fit in my 2002 Honda Civic lx coupe?

–Jillian Hair 1/16/2018 8:03:38 AM

Hello, Jillian! The Carpod Carrier is designed for vehicles equipped with a 2" receiver hitch. For more vehicle-specific cargo solutions, please call or visit your local U-Haul Hitch Center. Thank you!

–Savannah 1/18/2018 2:32:11 PM

If the pod is filled and has the waterproof cover on it can you open the trunk of an Audi Q5 to get to items in the Audi cargo space?

–Cat Traveler 12/23/2017 7:47:36 AM

Hello! The vehicle rear door will not fully open when the Carpod Carrier is attached and loaded. Thanks for asking!

–Savannah 12/29/2017 2:06:08 PM

Hi, do any of the sides swing open or do you lift all of the cargo out from the top? Thanks.

–Gabrielle 11/30/2017 9:33:03 PM

Hi, Gabrielle! The Carpod Carrier features sidewalls that can fold outward to provide easy loading and unloading. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 12/11/2017 2:42:25 PM

Does it comes assembled.

–Knight 11/27/2017 8:03:17 PM

Hello, Knight! This carpod carrier requires assembly. Please see the Instruction Manual for further assistance. Thank you!

–Savannah 11/29/2017 10:30:58 AM

I have a 2013 Honda Crosstour (V6), thinking to have Uhaul to install a hitch ( recommended a Class I hitch of 1.25"), can I have my car installed with this Carpod Carrier with a 1.25" to 2" hitch adapter? My concern is when installed with this cargo carrier (including the weights of the hitch and the carrier) whether the Tongue Weight is bearable with my car?

–AW 11/3/2017 10:22:58 PM

Hello! This Carpod Carrier is not recommended for your application. We recommend viewing cargo carriers designed for 1-1/4 inch receivers. The Curt Angled Shank Cargo Carrier is an option fit for a 1-1/4 inch receiver.

If you would like to have U-Haul install a cargo carrier, please contact your local U-Haul Hitch Center to make arrangements. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 11/27/2017 10:32:22 AM

I have a 2005 Honda CRV with the tire on the exterior of the back door. Will this clear the tire?

–Donna 10/2/2017 8:54:50 PM

Hi, Donna! This carrier will not clear the spare tire. Please see the Fold Up Carpod, this carrier will clear a spare tire. Thank you!

–Savannah 10/27/2017 3:51:11 PM

Do you need lights on the carpod

–Brent 6/3/2017 6:28:48 AM

Hi, Brent! An accessory taillight kit must be used if the cargo carrier covers vehicle taillights. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 6/5/2017 4:42:32 PM

What are the dimensions of the 2 carpod fold-up hitch carriers

–Peggy 4/19/2017 8:27:08 AM

Hi Peggy, the dimensions for the M2200 are 22” H, 48 3/4“ W, and 24” D.

–TIMOTHY 4/19/2017 1:39:58 PM

once assembled and installed into the hitch is it easy to remove and re-attach as necessary while on a road trip?

–ralph 3/7/2015 5:36:56 AM

Securing, removal and storing of the Carpod Carrier works best when unloaded and in the folded position.

Thanks for asking Ralph.

–Joseph 3/10/2015 8:00:44 AM

I have a 2009 vw tiguan. Is it possible to open the back hatch when the carpod is loaded? Will it clear the exhaust and rear lights?

–ralph 3/7/2015 5:33:14 AM

Ralph, our hitch pro writes "The Carpod Carrier will sit approximately 1 inch beyond the Volkswagen Tiguan rear bumper. The 22" sidewall height will not allow the rear hatch door to open when fully loaded."

Thanks for asking.

–Joseph 3/10/2015 7:54:24 AM

I am looking to have a class 2 hitch installed o my 2004 Toyota Avalon, would this Carpod be compatible with the hitch (Part number: 36291 or Part number: 36293)?

–Brandon 2/19/2015 7:27:57 AM

The Carpod Carrier (product number M2200) is not recommended for class 2 receiver hitches. For more information on 1-1/4" cargo carriers that fit your application, please visit your local U-Haul hitch center.

–Joseph 2/20/2015 4:19:12 PM

–mack 7/4/2014 4:06:25 AM
