The toughest aspect about long-term motorhoming is the incessant need to
store stuff. This is fairly easy to deal with when initially packing
your rig — but what about all those interesting places you plan to
visit … each with its own unique souvenirs? It’s virtually impossible
to travel and not collect memorabilia.
If your problem is simply a lack of space and not weight
capacity, an add-on cargo carrier is a viable option. Rather than
attaching to the roof as a traditional pod, the StowAway2 mounts out
back in a 2-inch hitch receiver, providing easy access. With a load
capacity of 200 pounds (or 12-1/2 cubic feet), the StowAway2 also claims
more storage options than typical roof-mounted carriers.
Molded in durable polymer that’s said to be resistant to
cold-weather cracking, the carrier features a secure lock, drain plug,
rear reflectors and automotive-grade weather sealing and
corrosion-resistant materials. Available in white or black; a
swingaway-frame model, with pre-wired taillights, is optional.
