Camper Vans and Space: How the StowAway Can Help

June 1st, 2012 | Posted by Pacrec in Hitch Carriers | RVs

It’s hard not the love the versatility of a camper van.  The size, fuel efficiency, maneuverability, and price are attractive to travelers who are looking to own a motor home but don’t want the size and commitment that larger RV’s bring.  But while they do have a lot of positive attributes, camper vans can be lacking in one major way: Space.  Because of the excellent use of space inside the camper for appliances and furniture that make your camper feel like home, space for personal belongings can be lacking.  One way to get some extra square footage for your camper van is to get a hitch cargo carrier.

Able to carry up to 200 lbs. of whatever you need, the StowAway hitch cargo carrier can give you that extra bit of space that every traveler needs.  Whether it’s the extra blanket you wish you had on that especially cold night, some extra camp chairs for friends you meet on the road, or just a place to relocate some items that currently seem to be getting in your way inside, a hitch cargo carrier can help make your life on the road a little bit more civilized and relaxing.

While there are a couple other options to meet your storage needs, hitch cargo carriers provide a better solution than those other options.  Firstly, there is no need for a roof base rack in order to install it since unlike most cargo options, it’s not on the roof.  All that is needed is a hitch and your hitch cargo carrier is ready to go.  Secondly, because it doesn’t attach to the roof, you don’t need to reach up to it to access your extra cargo. On a larger vehicle like a camper van this is a lot more practical since you might want to access it every day and don’t want to be constantly climbing up onto the roof.  Last and certainly not least is the better fuel efficiency.  Since it is behind the camper it will not affect the aerodynamics and your fuel efficiency will remain the same, unlike a clunky rooftop cargo carrier that will add wind resistance.

So if you find yourself wanting items that you can’t fit, just want more space in your camper van, or want a more convenient and practical option than your current roof cargo solutions, check out the StowAway Hitch Cargo Carrier.

Happy Travels!
