American-made StowAway Cargo Hitch Carriers have long been popular with dog owners across the country, as they safely and conveniently provide extra storage space for most SUV and minivan models. When it’s time to pack up for the dog show, hunting trip, or other canine trip, simply slide your StowAway hitch carrier into your vehicle’s hitch receiver, pack it to the brim, and let your beloved dog (and other passengers) enjoy a spacious back seat.

A StowAway Hitch Carrier ensures that your gear stays at ground-level, not hidden away on the roof somewhere. StowAway’s heavy-duty, high-impact polymer boxes and rugged steel frames keep your gear safe; a weather-tight seal makes sure everything stays dry. StowAway Swingaway frames even pivot 180 degrees to allow full access to the rear of your vehicle. The judges have spoken: when it comes to the hitch carrier breed, StowAway is clearly Best In Show.
