I am in the market for a hitch-mounted cargo carrier. I am considering one that is primarily Polypropylene instead of steel or aluminum due to weight (such as this one http://www.etrailer.com/pc-CC2~7507.htm ). My though was that a lighter weight carrier would make is easier for my wife to attach if she needed to. The carrier's capacity is the same as others (500 lbs).

Anyone have any experience with a "plastic" carrier or forsee a problem that I have not considered?

Thanks for your input!

Not to be negative, but I highly suggest not buying a plastic cargo carrier! It will probably not be as strong as you may think! Look into aluminum, the weight of an aluminum carrier will barely be noticed (if at all) in the rear, and is much more durable!!!

x3 on the Harbor Freight. I use mine for hauling deer, and today I'm going to figure out how to get my ice fishing house on there. I would not go with plastic, too cold here.
