Rather than get a huge MPG draining cargo bag for the roof, this was the next best option. I also wanted something big enough to handle a huge bag of duck decoys so I don't have to put them in my SUV after I've been out hunting.

It comes in parts and you need to put the whole thing together. I did NOT agree with the directions where the head of the bolts were on the outside and the thread/nuts on in the inside. This causes the sharp edges of the threads to point into the tray. I also purchased a waterproof bag for the cargo tray and if I put it in there with the thread pointed in, it could easily tear the bag. I reversed the directions of the bolts and its better now. Put some silicone on the edge of the threads now facing out so anyone walking around the tray doesn't get scraped.

The floor of the tray is pretty flimsy and definitely requires you to spread the weight. Putting anything dense on it (like a stump) can probably break the mesh floor, or at least it seems like it could. But since I plan on using it for luggage in a waterproof bag on long trips, I'm not really concerned about this issue.

I added some extra reflectors to it for about $5. I'm concerned with someone not seeing it in a dark environment and tripping over it or even a car not seeing it since it is rather low and black.

UPDATE: I have used this for about a year. Still no problems other than the occasional getting it scraped when going over steep dips. This is more of a problem of the road and car then the carrier. Used it for long trips from NJ to FL with multiple suitcases. You never know it was there unless you get to check it once in awhile. And certainly never effected gas mileage.

This carrier looks slightly different to what is pictured. I'll try to post a picture later. It amazon picture shows two braces on the bottom of the frame. Even the box that the carrier arrived in shows the same picture. Apparently Highland has improved the design. They have added more support (from what I can tell) to the frame pieces on each end of the main support bar and eliminated the pictured braces. It seems to be a much better design.

The carrier assembles easily. I did snap off one bolt, but it was easily replaced. It seems to be very sturdy. Obviously, at the center it's very strong. I put my 200 plus pounds on it there and it doesn't budge. I would not stand on either end though. If you're going to load it to it's 500 pound max, weight will need to be evenly distributed. I think it will work well for my planned use. I bought it for tailgating and plan to load a small Honda generator and coolers.

Overall, I'm very impressed and happy with this carrier.

When we're traveling, whether to visit someone; for camping; or what-have-you, we like to allow a lot of room in the back of the Ford Edge for our two good-sized Boxers (the dog-kind) to move around in as well as allowing us to be able to take as many supplies and items that we need for the trip. Who doesn't want to be prepared?

Years ago we stuffed packed everything into the very back of the SUV (at the time we had the very versatile but eminently ridiculed Pontiac Aztek). Later we got a Highland Rainproof Cartop Storage Bag, which allowed us to pack some things in the back and the rest in the cartop carrier and still allowed us to bring more supplies but reserved room for the dogs to move around.

Packing everything and still having an open rear window as well as space for the dogs to walk around in was getting harder and more logistically complex for every trip, especially after getting a screened-in canopy and having to pack it also.

So we set out to look for perhaps a cargo trailer, a small camper, or something along those lines.

Eventually we decided to go for a hitch-mounted carrier. You see them everywhere more than likely, used for every purpose. And after reading some fairly good reviews for the Highland Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier/Tray we decided to go with that model.

The specs say that it is made from heavy-duty powder-coated steel. It fits any two-inch receiver hitch and has a capacity of up to five-hundred pounds. It's also a good size, sixty inches wide by twenty inches deep, with a little ridge of about two and a half inches high around all four sides.

I had to order this 3 times from the Warehouse before I got it. The first one mysteriously disappeared at a ups depot after being checked in and out 3 times, the second one was the wrong product, third time was the charm.

Its cheap, its decently made, its a little floppy and you'd best center or distribute your load, because if you put it on one side or the other, this will bend at I'd say around 80-100lbs. It came a little scratched and dinged, so it'll need regular spray painting.

Its also quite heavy compared to tubular or aluminum versions. As much as twice as heavy.

Serves my purpose well, with the matching waterproof bag that the same company (Highland) sells. I throw this on the back of the SUV when we go to the beach, and all our wet stuff, towels, inflatables, etc all goes into the bag. When we get home, I can sort everything out and no mud or water in the back of the car. It'll also be nice if I need to go grab 6-8 bags of mulch, I can load them on this instead of breaking out the trailer to avoid stains in the back of the car.

If you have a trailer hitch and don't have one of these, you're missing out. From hauling messy stuff to throwing a few bikes on it, its handy. Make sure you buy one of those nice little cylinder hitch locks to keep someone from stealing it, and put some extra reflective tape on it while you're at it. One of my ditzy friends turned into a parking lot last week and cleaned one of these right off the back of a parked car.

Lastly, I somehow managed to assemble mine perfectly backwards so the reflective tape that does come on it is on the bumper end. Doh! I'd have had to take every bolt and nut out to fix it. I didn't notice that in the directions they had flipped the thing over between the two diagrams.
