I have their lid rack and like it a lot, usually strap 2 large chairs with motorcycle straps and can still open the lid.

We used the lid rack on ours to carry our patio mat which was great when it was wet and muddy...

It is also great for hanging things to dry like towels with the lid opened. Mine has 3 wheels, 2 in the back and one on the hitch, it makes it easy to roll it around, it also allows one-person mounting. I scribed the line so know exactly how far to insert the hitch to be able to insert the hitch pin.

I did a combination of a Stowaway II frame and a diamondplate tool box. I chose the side-opening toolbox so I could mount bike racks on the top. It's been a great solution.

We travel with 2 Bike Fridays which we are able to put under the rear Bed/sofa on out RoadTrek 210P. Removing and setting up is a 20-25 minute proposition so it limits some casual use but they are secure under there and out of sight. We do use a Stowaway 2 for carrying items like maps/touring books, extra clothing, canned food...essentially nothing of great value or too heavy.

Broyston - looks great. Stowaway was reasonably inexpensive and has been sufficient

I did the hitch box thing for a while. It's fraught with problems - carrying extra junk you don't use, the extra weight, the bouncing around, worrying about someone breaking into it, and just the plain unsightliness of it. Slim down your junk and find places to store in inside your van, you'll be alot happier in the long run.

I agree with all those negatives, but they can be resolved via careful targeting of the device to legitimate needs. My hitch carrier holds gasoline for my chainsaw and 60 pounds of ice-blocked frozen food to feed five adults at my destination, in a contraption that almost can't be stolen, doesn't cause bounce, and is not large and unsightly (IMO). I can't fit that stuff inside my van, and I certainly wouldn't be happier without it.
