The 2016 Hood to Coast has come to a close and the 2017 lottery selection is already underway. So this is a perfect time to review how the weekend went and how the StowAway met the needs of two teams in the race. (more…)
All your bags are packed, you’re ready to go. You have been for weeks. Enough of Winter already. It’s time to get your motor runnin’ and head out on the highway.
It’s Spring Break!
While a lot of folks have cut back on their driving recently due to rising gas prices, there’s still a good chunk of the population who refuse to let the situation at the pump deter their plans for that sacred annual March ritual. Full speed ahead!
So where are you bound for? A family trip to a theme park? A back to nature camping and hiking adventure? A golfing road trip with the guys (or gals)? Maybe a classic “Where the Boys Are” expedition to Bikini Beach? Well wherever you’re going, remember what AAA is saying about spring break travel this year – domestic destinations are viewed as less expensive and are likely to pull business from international hotspots, making them just as crowded or, gulp, even more so (all those financially strapped jet-setters, don’tcha know). Reservations are highly recommended.
If you’re a veteran Spring Breaker, you know that the destination isn’t the only place that can get crowded. Your vehicle can get pretty darn cozy, too. Luggage, snowboards, camping gear, golf clubs, coolers, pet supplies…whew! And don’t forget the passengers!
That’s why StowAway Hitch Cargo Carriers have become the most versatile and popular travel cargo boxes around. With up to 16 cubic feet of storage space and the ability to carry 200 pounds of gear, you can be sure that no boogie board gets left behind and that there will be plenty of stretchin’ out room inside the vehicle. Its convenient ground level access lets you get to your gear quickly and easily at rest stops, diners, trailheads, tourist traps and all those other must-see roadside attractions. Forget the hassle and fuel-ineficiency (gas prices again!) of a roof-top carrier.
Remember, crowded vacation areas can also attract the less reputable type of “vacationer”. It’s been said that at any time, at any rest area in the country, there is at least one felon lurking! (Sounds low). But with the StowAway’s secure locking mechanism, you’ll be able breathe easy knowing your stuff is safe while you’re in the club house or gift shop.
Taking the bikes with on your trip? No problem. The StowAway Hitch Cargo Carrier has been designed to be used simultaneously with the StowAway Hitch Bike Rack, a 4-bike and bike gear rack that can also be used separately for bike-only outings.
So wherever your Spring Break travels take you, down the PCH , up the A1A, or from the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters, a StowAway Cargo Carrier will help make your trip a comfortable one.
