Every car owner – particularly those who love tailgating, camping and going on road trips – needs to have is a hitch mounted cargo carrier.
Sometimes, you may not have enough space for everything, especially if you are taking along your family and pets with you. Even when there is enough space, there is some stuff better hauled outside the car.
If you have a cargo carrier already, you may want to buy a cargo carrier bag. These inexpensive bags fit conveniently in the cargo carrier basket and protect your cargo from road grit, wind, sun and rain.
