Hitch mount Swing away arm and cargo basket

16 posts in this topic

I have used a Stowaway for years at NC coast and around the farm. Don't let the 250lb "limit" scare you off. That rating is mild and meant for when the rack is swung away from the latch...extended meaning swung away outside of the receiver. and to the left of the rear bumper and gate. No unloading to use the open the gate. 


Imo, there isn't any rack made stronger, the latch has two fail safes, the basket is very heavily built and thickly powder coated. One can get a ticket in NC by failing to install a license plate in clear view, my rack has a 3/8 aluminum plate fixed to the back of the rack basket for the truck tag to be visible.


These things are NOT light weight and can be a four-handed job to slide into the receiver. I use 124qt cooler full and pack gear boxes or smaller coolers directly to the tube frame "cradle" instead of the big plastic tool box offered. 


I am considering one of these for my front or rear hitch receivers, guess the receiver mount could be modified to be on the side of the cart,  top quality product , they will build what you want special but you will pay for a quality product:
