Curt, supplier of a complete line of towing products and the leading manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, has released new new cargo management products. These products include a cargo carrier with ramp, a lightweight aluminum cargo carrier, and highly versatile roof rack crossbars. These products join an already robust line of hitch-mounted cargo carriers, bike racks, ratchet straps and more.
The all-new Curt cargo carrier with ramp offers a unique double-folding ramp design that is precisely tailored for ergonomic use. Instead of the entire ramp folding up vertically, it hinges in the middle, allowing the ramp to fold in half in the vertical position. This creates less wind resistance and drag for the vehicle while transporting cargo in the basket. The ramp features three unique positions. It folds out for easy loading of a mobility scooter, push mower, snow blower or other large item. It folds vertically in half for smooth transportation. It also folds into the cargo carrier itself for easy storage and portability.
The new Curt aluminum cargo carrier is engineered to be extremely lightweight – and easier to carry and install – without sacrificing load capacity. This hitch-mounted carrier weighs only 25 pounds but provides an on-par weight capacity of 500 pounds. It also features a very simple four-bolt assembly.
To add cargo storage space to almost any vehicle with roof rack side rails, Curt offers its all-new roof rack crossbars. These crossbars are engineered with a universal design to fit virtually any roof base rails up 50 inches wide. The roof rack crossbars are constructed from lightweight, rust-free aluminum and have a weight capacity of 150 pounds.
