CURT (18112): Trailer Hitch Cargo Carrier with Double-Folding Ramp

With its innovative double-folding ramp, this trailer hitch cargo carrier from CURT helps you transport bigger items but stands half as tall when folded up for travel, reducing obstruction and drastically limiting wind drag. Built from black carbide powder-coated aluminum, the 18112 cargo carrier is perfect for hauling bulky items like lawn mowers, snow blowers, mobility scooters, or just stashing some extra camping gear.

CURT designed the versatile ramp to be the heart of the design: it folds out for easy loading; it folds in half for transport; and it can fold completely into the carrier itself to remain out of the way when not in use. The shank also folds up to facilitate vehicle parking and storage.

The hitch carrier is rated at 500 lb, leveraging fully welded tubes for dependable strength. It includes an anti-rattle hitch pin that won’t drive you crazy on the road and built-in reflectors to let other drivers know you’re there. The standard, folding 2” shank fits most class 3, 4, and 5 hitches, while the 50” x 30.5” x 4” basket has built-in eye bolts to fasten ratchet straps, a cargo net, or bungee cords.

Features

  • Fully welded aluminum
  • Mounts to any 2” x 2” receiver tube
  • Rated to carry up to 500 lb
  • Carrier measures 50” x 30.5” x 4”
  • Built-in ramp for easy loading of lawn mowers, scooters, and similar equipment

  • Threaded anti-rattle shank
  • Integrated eye bolts for attachment and security
  • Built-in reflectors
  • Warranty: limited lifetime

CURT (45143): RockerBall™ Cushion Hitch with 2” Ball

Using exclusive CURT ShockDrop™ technology, the RockerBall™ cushion hitch transforms your towing experience by absorbing erratic trailer movement and rattling at the coupling point, providing a smoother ride and increased control and reducing the stress placed on your vehicle, receiver hitch, brakes, and suspension.

Unlike a traditional metal-on-metal connection that directly transfers vibration, jolting, chucking, noise, and wear to your tow rig, the RockerBall™ features an integrated cushion isolator that dramatically reduces jerking and jarring as you navigate bumps and potholes. And, with no airbags or bearings to service, the RockerBall™ is a low-maintenance dream that needs just a little zerk grease as needed.

Boasting forged-steel construction, a protective powdercoat, and a chrome-plated ball, the 45143 CURT kit includes a 2” ball mount with a 3” drop and a 2” shank to fit most class 3, 4, and 5 receiver hitches. An included anti-rattle shim kit ensures maximum vibration resistance.

We Got Hitched!

By John M. Arnaud

Last Thursday, Total Truck Centers and The AAM Group enjoyed a special visit with representatives from two of our program vendors: CURT Manufacturing, a giant in the towing industry, and ARIES Automotive, whose custom pickup and Jeep accessories help trailblazers everywhere break their own ground.

We spent the day brainstorming ways that Total Truck Centers’ marketing tools and services could introduce CURT and ARIES products—hitches, grille guards, bumpers, seat covers, and towing accessories—to more of our jobbers and their customers.

Thanks to Jeff Perez, Joe Thompson, and Patrick Cripe for flying out to see us. We loved having you and look forward to an exciting year ahead!
