This post marks the start of new series, Where’s StowAway Now? We receive many great messages from customers telling us all of the great places they’ve taken their StowAway products and how they’ve used them and we want to share that with all of you.
This week’s post might surprise you but it’s true…the StowAway has been seen in France & Spain! The Zahn family
of Toulouse, France had been searching for a long time for the best way to haul their son’s dirt bike and still be able
to follow him while he road. They found just what they needed when searching online.
“When I discovered StowAway on the net, I knew it was the way to carry my son’s motorcycle on the rear of my Toyota land cruiser.
With the StowAway Frame I could still go offroad together with my son on his motorcycle which would not be possible with a trailer. And, the swingaway frame allows access to the rear door, even with the bike on it.
There was one problem at first, however—shipping to France was estimated at about $500-$600—just too expensive!
We decided to visit Florida that summer and I asked Jim from StowAway to send me the big package to our hotel in Orlando. We used it throughout our journey in Florida and the Keys with our rental car.
Upon departure to Toulouse, France via Frankfurt, I took a chance and went to the Lufthansa boarding desk
at the Miami and asked if we could bring a 90 pound package as extra luggage and they accepted with extra charge of only $50!
The SwingAway flew with us in the Huge Airbus 380 back to Europe. After changing the hitch of my 4X4, our family has gone with our son offroading on his motorcycle several times in Aragon in the Spanish Pyrenees.”

Our thanks to the Zahn family for sharing their story and photos with us—and thanks to the Lufthansa crew for having reasonable rates for additional luggage!
