Get Started With Hitch Cargo Carriers

To select the Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier that best fits your needs, please follow the steps listed below. Stowaway2 Hitch Cargo Carriers come with many features and options. We hope this guide makes everything easy for you.

1. Choose The Correct Hitch Cargo Carrier Frame Type

You have 2 choices in Stowaway2 Hitch Cargo Carrier Frames: raised fixed frame  and swing away. The swing away frames are most often used on SUVs and other vehicles that require access to a rear lift door. The fixed frames are most often used on RVs and other vehicles where rear access is not important. The basic fixed frame can be used on vehicles whose hitch receiver is far off the ground. The towing fixed frame allows you to tow a trailer and still use your Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier.
