    Used this as a mount for our Honda eu3000is generator on the back of our airstream trailer.

    Built extremely strong. Very satisfied.

    Worked real well for me


    I purchased this in hoping that I could fabricate a frame to hold a 48" long aluminum tool box on the back of my Jeep Wrangler. It worked perfect and had a lot of buddies asking where I got the set up. I am now going to post it on Jeep Forum. I'm a Kitesurfer and can now pack all my gear in the aluminum tool box without getting sand all through the inside my Jeep now. Perfect.

    Great product, prompt delivery

    • Well constructed works as advertised
    <p>We purchased the MAX Cargo carrier with swing away frame in 2012. We traveled extensively with the box attached to the back of a Class B motorhome Van camper. I painted it silver with "plastic" spray paint cans to match the Van. Having the swing away frame was a real convenience for accessing the rear doors of the Van. In 2016 we transferred the cargo carrier to our new Class C motorhome. This time I painted the box white to match the camper. After we began towing a small car we realized we did not need the swing away frame because it caused the box to sit too far to the rear and it made hitching the tow car very difficult. StowAway promptly shipped an new stationary frame for the Box. I am very satisfied with the customer service and support and I really love our cargo box.</p>

    The carrier arrived quickly was very easy to assemble and works well on my trailer as a generator platform for a Honda E2000i.

    Very satisfied

    Excellent! We're in business!

    The "H" frame was an excellent base. Welded on a couple angles and we were in business.

    On line help was excellent.
