StowAway hitch mounted cargo boxes are molded for rugged outdoor use with a similar resin to that used to mold white water kayaks. Hitch mounted for ground-level loading, the StowAway offers superior function for those road-trip, travel and work necessities. Our hitch frames are welded using heavy duty tubing for strength and durability, with a platform that can be used to mount a cargo box, cargo basket, grill station, bike rack or ski box, which makes StowAway one formidable solution. Your own box or rack can even be mounted to the frame.

Available in a Standard 12.5 cubic feet capacity model, or a larger Max 16 cubic feet capacity model, the StowAway cargo box boasts a locking latch and taillights, black or ivory color choices, and a range of options to enhance its overall utility. The StowAway cargo rack can be converted to a bike rack, rod rack, grill station, and or ski box depending upon your specific needs.

StowAway Hitch Cargo Carriers are used throughout the world across a wide array of recreational and commercial applications. From the North Pole to the South Pole and every continent in between, StowAway is used to haul gear and make travel easier.

Have a need for more room and storage when you travel? StowAway Carriers has the solution!


There are many choices for transporting more gear than your vehicle can accommodate. Trailers, roof boxes, and a range of hitch carriers are all commonly available. Why choose a StowAway hitch cargo box then? Here's why.

Easier Access and Better Functionality than Roof Boxes

As a hitch-mounted cargo box the StowAway boxes offer easy ground-level loading and unloading without sacrificing access to the back of your vehicle. There is no need to teeter on the door jam or stool to lift the gear up over your head to get it into the carrier. Roof boxes can also be limiting in the size and shape of items that can be loaded, and usually max out at 125 to 165 lbs capacity. For skis and snowboards roof boxes are a decent solution, but for just about everything else a hitch cargo box is far easier to use and more functional.

Easier than a Trailer to Drive and Store

Pulling a small trailer with your gear is certainly an option. But pulling a trailer makes driving more complicated and seriously limits your parking options. And where do you store your trailer when not in use?

Versatility and Quality compared to other Hitch Carriers

When developing the StowAway hitch cargo box we decided to focus on function, versatility, and value. Customers told us that they wanted easy access to the back of their vehicle. They wanted their carrier to be easy to load and use, and ideally be helpful for a range of activities. Lastly, they wanted something that would last over time under a range of conditions and applications. Based on all of the positive feedback we receive, we know we've achieved these goals.

Function - Our Hitch Cargo Boxes offer an easy-to-use locking latch and swing out for clear access to the back of the vehicle. The swingaway frame opens with a simple pull latch and is secured with dual safeties when under way. Our optional accessories can convert the box into a food station, or make the box easier to handle when off the vehicle.

Value - We build the StowAway hitch cargo boxes to last, starting with the materials we use. Our frames are welded using heavy-duty tube and bar so they can support a heavy load and last. Our cargo boxes are molded using linear low density polyethylene, the same polymer used to mold white water kayaks and offshore buoys. Not only are they built to last, but to absorb the impacts that may occur while loading or unloading, and the occasional bump that might occur. And StowAway racks and hitch cargo boxes are backed by a 10-year warranty. All things considered, we believe the StowAway Hitch Cargo Box offers the best value among the range of gear transport options out there.

Versatility - Our hitch storage box can be removed from the frame and replaced with our hitch cargo rack, a bike rack, grill station, rod rack or a ski box for ski shuttles. Or you can mount your own device to the frame, and we've seen customer mount generators, anvils, custom grills and other platforms or tote boxes, all because of the versatility of the StowAway frames. The possibilities are endless!
