I've been using the MAX Stowaway2 for the last 2 years now and have never regretted purchasing it. I particularly found very useful the optional items, MAX Carrier Lid Rack, Cargo Carrier Wheel Kit and the Hitch Tightener. The wheel kit allows me to easily roll the stowaway anywhere when unhitched much like like a hand truck or dolly. The only CON I've found has been with the license plate bracket. The plastic bracket holds the square nuts will eventually wear out making it difficult tightening the screws to secure the license plate. This only became a problem for me after mounting and unmounting the stowaway multiple times.
