"This Stowaway Box was bought in CT back in 2009. It's first home was a Minivan. The Minivan was retired in 2012. The Stowaway Box then went onto a GMC Yukon XL in 2012 until the Yukon died in Chicago on 7/8/2016. The Stowaway Box has now survived to make it onto a newer GMC Yukon XL and the Stowaway's adventures continue...As you might guess, we like our Stowaway and hope to keep him around for some more years. BTW, that Spare tire tilts away from the Stowaway Box so it can still swing out. We also found that KIWI brand Black shoe dye keeps the upper lid/deck looking fresh and matching the rest of the box." -Richard G.
"We bought a 2018 Toyota Sequoia because we have 6 kids and needed an 8 passenger vehicle that would fit us even when the kids are getting older, and that has been great, but the Sequoia has almost zero storage room compared to our previous Honda Odyssey that worked when the kids were smaller. After reviewing all options we went with the largest StowAway2 with the swing away feature and have zero regrets! We see a lot of other Sequoias driving around and they all seem to have some sort of carrier for the same reason, but have never seen one of them with the same carrier and I always feel like letting them know the answer to their problem is this carrier! Thanks for making this and while it seemed expensive last fall when we bought it, I look now at the cost compared to how much we have used it and just laugh. Great investment for sure!" -John & Sally C.
"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. " -David K.
"We use the StowAway on family road trips - 13 of us in all. No modifications We looked at several storage options but found the StowAway to be the best for our crew. We can get in and out of the box without ladders or steps. When we need in the back of the Acadia or Pilot, the box is easy and quick to swing out of the way. We get lots of comments from other travelers and many with roof top units wish they had the StowAway." -Jerry P.
"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." -Darby C.
"We have owned out 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!!" -Brandon S.
"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." -John K.
"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." -Paul K.
"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. " -Roger & Helen S.
"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." -Ed S.
"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. " -Patti B.
"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! " -E.J. M.
"For having a limited space in our Class B RV the MAX was a perfect addition." -Ted B.
"Thanks for the high quality, American-made carrier. Definitely worth the investment." -Patrick S.
"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. " -Jeff D.
"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! " -Paul C.
"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!" -Carol H.
"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. " -Brad C.
