Get Started With Hitch Cargo Racks

Stowaway2

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

1. Choose The Correct Hitch Cargo Rack Frame Type

You have 3 choices in Stowaway2 Hitch Cargo Rack Frames: basic fixed frame, raised fixed frame, and swing away frame. 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.

If you want to look into the clearance yourself, please check out our two informational pages to learn more: Hitch Mounted Cargo Rack Clearance Guide and Cargo Rack Tailgate Clearance Guide.


Valley

The Valley Hitch Mount Cargo Racks are a lower cost alternative to the Stowaway 2 Hitch Cargo Racks. While they don't swing away, the folding feature of the racks is very convenient and affordable.

Choose between Standard and Deluxe Cargo Racks:

The Standard Rack features steel construction, an expanded mesh floor, black powder coated finish, and the folding shank to let the carrier fold up against the vehicle when not in use.

The Deluxe Rack features tubular steel construction, an expanded mesh floor, black powder coated finish, and the option of a folding shank or a raised fixed frame for extra ground clearance.

Don't forget to choose from the Valley accessory items to make securing your gear easy. We offer a cargo net and a canvas storage bag. None of the Valley Hitch Cargo Carriers come with a locking hitch pin, but you can purchase one as an accessory item.
