How many times have you wished you had more space for your road trip?

Packing up for a road trip requires careful planning – how much to take and where to put it.  Too much gear and your passengers will end up riding with duffel bags or suitcases on their laps for hours.  Not enough gear and you won’t have what you need when you stop along the way.  So where do you put the gear that you need but don’t quite have the room for?  You could try a travel trailer but driving and parking with a trailer can be a bit challenging.  Plus where to store it when not in use, or the cost to rent one if you go the rental route.  Or you could use a rooftop carrier, but loading and unloading a rooftop carrier requires a foot stool for a lot of people, let alone the impact of a rooftop carrier on your gas mileage.  And don’t forget you have it up there when going into the garage or you may tear it off.

Is there a better solution?

Everything, INCLUDING, the Kitchen SinkShow Dishwasher and Generator as options for the StowAway

We think there is, and it’s the StowAway Hitch Cargo Carrier.  The StowAway Carrier slides easily into your hitch receiver, providing you with ample, ground level access to your gear. The box itself is rugged and roomy, and the StowAway carrier swings out so you can access the back of your vehicle to let the dogs out.  And the StowAway box design is not only perfect for carrying your luggage and your gear, it can also be converted to a kitchen sink once you get to your destination. Talk about versatility!  It even has a drain plug.

What about Other Uses?

The versatility doesn’t stop there. The StowAway SwingAway Frame has plenty of different functions just by itself. You can combine this hitch mount carrier with one of our Cargo Carriers, a hitch cargo rack, a bike rack or even our Hitch Grilling Station. However, the uses are practically endless. In addition to the many options we offer, several of our customers have come up with their own uses, including the homemade kitchen sink above. Anyone who has ever gone on a long camping trip knows how nice it would be to have a kitchen sink in the woods. With the StowAway Hitch Cargo Carrier, that dream can be a reality. Plus, if you can turn it into a kitchen sink, just imagine what else you can do with it.

Endless Possibilities

Of course, you can haul just about anything you’ll need for your trip in the cargo carrier, up to 200 lbs. with a two-inch hitch. That includes golf clubs, luggage, food, recreation equipment and even fold-up bikes. It’s also great for pet owners. As anyone who owns a pet can attest to, there are plenty of extra things you need to bring along when you travel with your furry friend. All that “stuff” conveniently fits into your hitch mount carrier, which means you’ll have more room for you and your pet(s) inside. Even when you’re not camping or on a long road trip there are plenty of other uses for the StowAway Hitch Carrier. Do your kids play sports? Maybe you coach a soccer team. It doesn’t matter the sport, you can throw all that smelly, dirty gear in your hitch mount carrier and leave the stench behind.

Folding bikes in the Stow carrier,

People use our StowAway carriers for all kinds of reasons. In fact, our customers continually find new ways to use our cargo carriers that we would never think of, and many of those customers share those experiences with us. A lot of people ride bikes and although we offer a bike rack that attaches to our hitch mounted SwingAway Frame, folding bikes don’t fit well on a bike rack. As it turns out, our StowAway Max Cargo Carrier makes a great companion for anyone who owns and hauls a folding bike. (more…)
