|RealTruck has great customer service. Fast ship, nice web site, fast email response, nice people. Recommend the vendor.|
The product, however, is poor. After assembly, the whole carrier wobbles, as the fit requires some washers for a tighter fit. There is simply too much play in the main structural parts.
Perhaps most annoying is that the dimensions are misrepresented. The depth of the carrier deck for the cargo is <22", even though the description is 23". Yes, it made a difference for me, as the cargo I bought this for is 23".
The hitch insert hole for the pin does not align with the hole in my carrier because the carrier stock is too long, and rests against the internal crossbar of my car hitch. If yours is the same (likely) this will require some modification to even install on your car.
This is a heavy item. To return it after assembly is a huge hassle. Caveat Emptor. While RT was a great retailer, this is one item that perhaps isn't something to do mail-order, as it is likely you'll need to return it. RT offered, but I declined because I didn't want to disassemble, re-crate and deal with FedEx. A few hours of work was necessary to get it installed (wobbly) on my car, but it is useable. Since the size is wrong, the mounted cargo looks like hell, but it will have to do.
It just is disappointing. Beware.

|I ordered this item to use on family vacation. It came in quickly and was exactly as described. This is a very durable item, a tad heavy but very sturdy and will work great for years to come. I am glad I spent the money on this item vs the flimsy model several of my friends bought at local auto parts place, theres are poor quality and rock back and forth while this one is solid and worked great throughout our trip.|
|Solid construction steel,
I drove from Philly to Boca Raton, Florida,
with a big load around 400lbs and had zero issues.
|Very sturdy. Easy to assemble. I like that you have some adjustment on the distance between the carrier and the rear bumper of the car. I highly recommend the ROLA hitch carrier.|
|Easy install to the ROLA carrier and integrated well with my 10 Yukon Denali. Bought an additional adaptor to fit the trailer plug on the truck but no issues.|
|Great product and easy to assemble. Looks great on my 2010 Yukon Denali and combined it with the light kit to add to the safety factor. Though sturdy and heavy, can be mounted to the truck by a single person. I have used the product in short haul scenarios to date but could not be more pleased. RT.com had the best price and shipping by far.|
|This carrier is heavy duty and good looking. The only reason it didn't get five stars is because the hardware was not complete. I had to go buy some extra bolts, nuts, and washers to put it together completely. This didn't seem to be the fault of realtruck.com as the item came in the manufacturers box.|
|I actually purchased two cargo carriers (The Surco 52018 with light kit 52014 and ROLA Hitch Carrier 59502 with light kit 20174). Both cargo carriers are well made and good choices for users desiring heavy duty, quality carriers. I would recommend either one. There are some minor differences that you might consider important. The Surco has an 8-9 inch shank that comes straight back from the car. Therefore it sits closer to the car and lower to the road. The advantage could be that with a low cargo a SUV gate might still open and of course you have a few less inches off the back of your car. The cargo space is 24 x 60 vs about 22 x 56 on the ROLA. This might be important with 24" suitcases (a standard size). The ROLA has a 15 inch shank that angles up, raising the carrier several inches higher than the Surco and a few inches further from the back of the car. The deck of the ROLA is slightly smaller, but is rated for 600 pounds vs 500 pounds. Both light kits work well, but the person who installed both for me liked the Surco because if attached to a bar rather than in the rubber/vinyl inserts. I think they are both good and would suggest you opt for the carrier that best suits you and then buy the light kit that is designed for it. Realtruck.com filled the order quickly and had the product at my door in just a few days. |
|My order came to me in only a couple of days. The item was packaged with bubble wrap and was very secure and protected. This is a great company with good products. I'll be using them again.|
|I love this rack, the best on I have ever used or seen!!! Would recommend to everyone, very heavy duty piece of equipment!!!|
