Cargo Carriers

Hauling necessary gear and equipment, whether it be for work, vacation or just enjoying the outdoors, can be a pain. Trying to fit everything inside your vehicle while leaving room for passengers to travel comfortably can present quite the challenge. That is where a hitch cargo carrier can be the solution.

A hitch cargo carrier can be used for multiple purposes. For road trips, it can be a great place to transport luggage. On gameday, it can haul your BBQ grill and chairs for the ultimate tailgate. Not only does a hitch cargo carrier free up space inside your vehicle, it is also great for transporting items that are not suitable for your vehicle’s interior like gas cans or harmful substances.

There are a few benefits hitch cargo carriers have over car top carriers. Hitch cargo carriers are attached to the hitch receiver on your vehicle eliminating the need to lift heavy items above your head to stow. Weight capacity is another advantage for hitch cargo carriers. Car top carriers are usually limited to less than 200 pounds whereas most hitch cargo carriers, depending on the tongue weight of your receiver hitch, can handle up to 500 pounds of cargo. Also, having a cargo carrier positioned behind your vehicle does not create any additional drag for your vehicle that would reduce gas mileage.

Always take precaution when carrying luggage or other items in a cargo carrier outside your vehicle. Southside Hitch also offers cargo straps, hitch locks and lockable latches to secure your cargo.
