Here are some great ideas to get you started thinking out of the box and onto the frame. And when you come up with your own … send photos!

The easiest, ready-made use of the StowAway SwingAway Frame is to turn it into a tailgating grill station. Add your own grill or take advantage of the StowAway Tailgate Grill Station Plus, which comes with a Cuisinart gas grill, acrylic cutting board and two folding side shelves.

The StowAway SwingAway Frame isn’t just for pulling and hauling

• Tow a portable generator to your cabin or campsite in the woods to power everything from bug zappers to coffee pots.

• Haul your motorcycle or dirt bike far away from civilization for some fun on the back roads.

• Take your Vespa on a road trip so that when you get where you’re going, you can cruise around town quickly and easily, with less gas and fewer parking hassles.

• Carry your bikes on the StowAway Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier, which holds and protects up to four bikes – wherever you want to take them – with soft rubber cradles and straps.

• Some avid Jimmy Buffett fans we know actually used their StowAway SwingAway Frame as the foundation for a Tiki bar in the parking lot. And what if – heaven forbid – you need to get more ice and limes? The whole affair swings out 180 degrees to give you easy access to the rear door/s of your vehicle.

• We also know someone who mounted a Rubbermaid tub on the back of his Tesla roadster, to give himself some extra cargo space with his space-age electric car.
