StowAway Cargo Carriers
StowAway cargo carriers are our biggest seller, so it makes sense that most of the feedback we get from customers is about our Stowaway MAX and StowAway Standard carriers. If you'd like to see testimonials about other products we sell, see Other StowAway Products below.
Great Customer Service
I just purchased the Standard box on the swinging frame. I am a customer care consultant who has served many major corporations. I simply want to tell you (a) what a well-designed product family you have, (b) how super user-helpful your website is, and (c) how friendly and knowledgeable your call center people are. I look forward to receiving and using my StowAway cargo carrier.
Ordering the Stowaway2 Max was very easy. I called and all my questions were answered politely and accurately. The delivery date was right on, actually earlier than promised. Assembly was a piece of cake. No missing or extra parts. Perfect fit. We are so pleased with our purchase. We full time RV and this is perfect extra storage.
Installation is a Breeze
Received our order. As usual, my husband handed me the guide and he started putting it together. I had to read fast to catch up with him. Lots of directions, clarification and info! He found the whole process very easy. The only time I had to 'help' was to hold up one end of the hitch while he installed the washers and pivoting pin. No frustrations! Everything went together smoothly. Very happy with pre-drilling! Quality of hitch and box is very good. Great job, StowAway! Thanks for being an American Company!
Thought you guys might like to know - a 59 yr old grandmother and 13 yr old granddaughter installed the Standard cargo carrier tonight. So if anyone ever inquires on how difficult installation is you can tell them it's not too much for a girl.
Very easy to assemble and install. My wife and I assembled together and didn't even have an argument! Impressed with quality of the product. Fit and finish is very nice.
This is wonderful! I now can carry everything I want. Great construction. Easy to assemble. Nice wiring harness with license plate.
Received my MAX cargo carrier with swing frame and lid rack yesterday. You have a great product there. Easy to assemble and well made. Exactly what we needed for our camper van. Thanks.
So Much Space
We just returned from a 22-day Florida trip and used the Cargo Carrier for the first time. Just wanted you to know we LOVE it. We were able to take golf clubs, shoes, store our folding chairs and have room for oranges.

When we take our family of four (plus Australian Cattle Dog) on a camping trip, our StowAway gives us the extra space for camping kit that we need to make the interior of our car comfortable for all of us. It's swing-away feature gives us easy access to the back of the car while providing total access to everything we need at the campsite. Great idea, well executed and you don't have to be 7 feet tall to get to your gear.
We have owned our carrier for about 3 years now and have made 2 road trips each 4000 miles around the country. Our latest trip was from Florida to Canada in our coach. We have people ask about the carrier at every stop. The carrier has been amazing, considering we have 5 kids, all the scooters, helmets, fishing poles and other outside toys fit excellent. Great product!!
Love the MAX Carrier. It has enough room for luggage for my family of five. We put all our luggage in it, which frees up the back of our 2015 Suburban for snacks, ice chest, etc. I plan on using it for our next trip to the beach on my 2013 Chevy Truck. The bikes, fishing gear, and ice chest will go in the truck bed, and the luggage in the Carrier. This is truly a great product.
Easy & Convenient
First trip with the Stowaway was to Rocky Mountain National Park for several days of camping with my husband and 2 dogs. Loved it! Easily 'swung away' so the dogs were able to get out through the rear of the car and the rear window was able to open with no interference of the box. Large enough to hold everything we needed to pack and everything stayed dry as we did drive through one thunderstorm as we drove across Kansas.
We got back from a recent road trip with our now 1 year old triplet boys, from Oregon all the way down to San Diego California taking Hwy 1 and 101. Very pleased with the storage unit as I had initially gotten roof crossbars to get a cargo box, but decided to go with the Stowaway2. Much easier to access and there were times like driving through the opening in red wood trees that we just wouldn't be able to do with a roof top box. And the biggest test that I was worried about, going up or down steep hills. San Francisco tested my concern and didn't scrape once.
Several times along the trip we required some of the gear while it was raining. It was great to have the gear available without having to open the car during the rainstorm. we could pull the tent and set up camp, then move the rest of the supplies into the dry environment.
A perfect size for our Astro van, our simplified camper! With a conventional carrier/box, we couldn't use the rear doors and had to dig under the beds for various kitchen equipment. The Stowaway is my back saver and stress saver!! Throughout a 1000-mile trip in southern Utah and northern Arizona, the carrier performed perfectly. So far, we are totally happy. It will stay on the van permanently, ready for whatever!
We really like the convenience of our StowAway2 Cargo Carrier which allows us to transport extra camping gear such as chairs, outdoor carpets, hoses and even a Bar-B-Q even when they are wet after a rain. The unique two piece swingaway frame allows us to swing the box away from our Pleasure-Way Plateau XL RV in order to attach a tow bar for our tow car.
I have a StowAway2 Max cargo box. We go to a lot of dog shows. In a bit over a year, our stowaway box has hauled our dog show stuff over 20k miles — it's been across the country and back twice. I love it.
I purchased a StowAway 2 Max last year and have been extremely happy with it. It is the perfect carrier for our growing family and frequent road trips. My appreciation for your product reached a new level while traveling on the NJ turnpike on our way home from visiting family for Christmas. We were involved in what could have been a very serious accident. I say "what could have been" because our Stowaway absorbed the majority of the impact when we were hit from the rear and, in my opinion, saved my family from serious injury or worse. Thank you for building such a great product.
Thanks for the high quality, American-made carrier. Definitely worth the investment.
Great experience with the MAX Cargo Carrier. Solid construction, fits perfectly and doesn't rattle or shake. Very impressed and very satisfied!

I purchased a large Stowaway2 carrier about 9 years ago when we lived in Nebraska. With 4 kids and family that lives around the country, I don't know what we'd do without it. Great product and we love it!
Great looking! Durable! Practical! These are just a few words to describe this great item! This has made my travels across the United States so much easier and comfortable! Thanks StowAway!
I don't know what I would do without my carrier. I bought it for my Jeep Laredo around 05 and was happy that it fit my Jeep Commander.
Other StowAway Products
We bought a Stow Away Swing Away frame from you in August of 2017. I want to start by saying that we love the additional functionality it has brought to our vehicle. We are building out our camp kitchen on the swing away and have already used it with a simple kitchen configuration over a month trip.
SwingAway Frame - Love it as a pellet smoker kitchen :) for my fifth wheel...
My order of new tail lights has arrived; they have been installed and all is working well. Thanks so much, again, for great customer service! As I tell folks who ask, the Swingaway Model 022.3 is the best addition to our Sportsmobile we have made in the thirteen years we have had it
The Lid Rack arrived and is installed. Great Product, quick delivery and easy to install. Thank you.
