Default Re: Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers

I bought a cargo carrier from Canadian Tire a few weeks back. It fits into receiver on my PW Excell. I paid 199.00CDN for it. I built a box and placed it inside carrier. I used two short chains and placed one on either side of carrier and attached them to vehical hitch. With the chains i also used two screw type fasteners too tighten up chains. They act as a back up secure device and also keep the carrier level. I have driven 800km/500miles with it on and no problems to date.

Then fill it with all the extra stuff you'd planned to put in your hitch mounted box.
Yeah, that's a plan. If I get one of those Aero boxes with those cool drop down wheels, why not just drive with the wheels down? Or would that require a separate license plate?

With apologies to Garfield, I resemble that remark! And if said wife actually applies that scheme, won't she be doing a lot of solo driving?
Hahahaha, just had a look at this response. I hadn't thought of that interpretation.
Nice one Dan.

It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.

Default Cargo Carrier to hold the Spare Tire?

I would rather remove the spare tire, and have the carrier closer to the van . . . and have a swing out feature to get the back doors open . . . . but is there one large enough to put the spare tire in????

These from Let's Go Aero look big enough:

Enclosed Cargo Carriers

Looks like slide out not swing away though.
