PAKMULE is a fully TIG welded beast of a cargo carrier, boasting nearly 12 square feet of cargo space (that’s half the size of a full size pickup bed)! 100% aluminum, PAKMULE will never rust, weighs a mere 42lbs, and yet is burly enough to handle 500lbs of cargo! Designed to easily secure and access all your gear, our system is made to improve every aspect of your adventure, no matter how rowdy!
Access your coolers contents without unstrapping them? Yep! Raise the hatch of your SUV so you can kennel your dog? Uh huh, that too… WHILE LOADED!*
And our locking, anti-wobble connection keeps everything secure, whether you’re crossing a continent or rambling down some backroad.
It’s not just a hitch basket, it’s a PAKMULE.
*in many configurations
PakMule Cargo Carrier
PAKMULE’s hitch basket was developed for the outdoorsman who obsesses over high quality, functional gear . Other carriers on the market were clumsy, heavy, and difficult to use, so we made our own. And its aluminum construction makes it lightweight and easy to carry.
100% welded, PAKMULE doesn’t go together with a bucket of bolts when it arrives. Nope, it arrives fully TIG welded and ready to travel, while remaining resistant to every environment you’ll encounter. Winter slopes of Silverton for some back country runs? No Problem. Coast of baja chasing rooster fish in the surf? Bring it on! PAKMULE can take it all, and still look great doing it! Once installed, the innovative locking, anti-wobble connection takes over to keep your PAKMULE stable and secure for the long haul.
100% Made in U.S.A. by craftsmen who take pride in every detail. When you buy PAKMULE, you know you are supporting American jobs, and American families.
ROUND PIPE CONSTRUCTION
Pipe construction makes securing your equipment simple, especially when used in conjunction with our MULEstraps. Also makes it easy to carry!
100% Aluminum Construction means no paint to chip and no rust to destroy… for a lifetime of low maintenance!
Threaded shaft and a stainless bolt prevents your basket from dancing while you’re driving. Includes a keyed lock.
DESIGNED FOR CARGO DOORS
Strap down your cooler, load it with ice and choice beverages, and then leave it… all weekend! With PAKMULE you can access your secured cooler and still raise your SUV's rear hatch to let Hank out to hunt!
*not all coolers have clearance. PAKMULE is designed for a 65 quart cooler and a rear lifting cargo door. Larger/taller coolers will interfere with cargo doors. Each vehicle is different, and its hitch location will determine which cooler sizes work. PAKMULE does not guarantee this access or functionality. Vehicles with swing cargo doors have greater interference (FJ Cruiser, Mercedes G Wagon, Jeep Wranglers, etc). If you have a rear mounted spare tire, such as a jeep wrangler, PAKMULE "The Original" will not fit. PAKMULE Sway-Back was designed specifically for this application. Check it out!If you have any questions about fit or access, please contact PAKMULE.

Because PAKMULE is HUGE and fully assembled, it is classified as an oversized item. We ship using UPS freight, however if you are in Houston, you can make arrangements to pick it up at will call. UPS freight is not as fast as ground, and there are some limitations to where they will deliver. If you live in a rural area and have any questions, please contact PAKMULE first.
