Roof rack-mounted cargo pods are great—if you're as tall as Shaq or are comfortable walking on stilts. Sure, you can use a ladder for loading before your trip, but the last thing you need is to tote around more gear. So, smarter and vertically challenged adventures roll with the ROLA Adventure System Hitch Cargo Box.
This modular hitch cargo pod and tray mounts right to your hitch receiver, so all your gear stows within reach. And, depending on your cargo needs, you choose from a swing-away, tilt or fixed model. The swing model opens access to your trunk and cargo area, the tilt model lets you park with ease, and the fixed model fits 1.25" receivers for smaller vehicles. And, all three set you up for road-going adventures!
With a tray surface area measuring 21" x 49" and a whopping 13.5 cu ft of storage capacity, you can travel with all your stuff in tow. The 2" receiver models hold up to 250 lbs, and the 1.25" kit handles a hefty 150 lbs. All metal is finished with weather-resistant powder coat, and the set includes a hitch pin, clip and all required hardware. Best yet, ROLA backs your Adventure System Hitch Cargo Box with an adventurous 5-year warranty.

I haven't used the cargo box yet. My only complaint is I thought I had ordered the swing out Rola box and I received the tilt up box. When I was talking to the salesman on the phone I was sure I ordered the swing out model but received the other one. I do like the box.

Well built, heavy duty cargo box. I purchased this box because you can remove the box and leave the hitch assembly in place. Easy to load and has a large capacity.
