RV Cargo Carrier and Accessories for your Road Trip
Posted: Jun 13, 2017
An outdoors escape provides a perfect opportunity to breathe easy and stay away from the daily hassles of life. The thrills of traveling by road include watching changing scenery and making new discoveries. One big challenge often faced by travelers going on a getaway is creating sufficient space to carry all necessary travel items without suffocating passengers or cramming the cockpit. Whether you are traveling in your SUV or RV, you can overcome this challenge by installing a cargo carrier or roof rack outside the vehicle to expand the storage space. The roof rack can easily be mounted on the ceiling of the vehicle to provide extra space. This platform can support a cargo carrier, luggage and equipment such as ski racks and bike racks. If you are traveling in an RV, the RV Cargo Carrier can help you haul massive amounts of cargo and keep your passengers comfortable. To protect your luggage and camping equipment from elements such as rain, consider investing in a suitable cargo bag or cover.
RV Cargo Carrier
RV Cargo carriers come in different construction and sizes. The main subcategories include the tray style cargo carrier, roof top cargo carrier, basket-style cargo carrier and the ATV cargo carrier. The basket-style cargo carrier offers campers a simple, reliable and convenient way to increase storage space in your SUV, RV, truck or car. This cargo carrier typically comes in a hitch mount design and features a receiver tube opening and hitch pin and clip for securing the cargo. Modern basket-style cargo carriers, on the other hand, feature heavy-duty, tubular steel construction that is lightweight and durable and can haul a cargo of up to 500 lbs. The tray style cargo carrier is ideal for big trips such as weekend camping getaways. It can haul anything from camping gear and cooler to a kayak.
Tray style cargo carriers are also easy to assemble and use because of their bolt design construction and ease of using pin and clip to fasten the load. One popular tray-style cargo design option is one where the shank can be tucked by folding when there is no load to haul behind the RV. Durable roof rack cargo carriers are built using robust and lightweight materials such as heavy-duty steel tubing. It is easy to install this carrier on the RV because it features a simple assembly kit specially built for roof mounting. The roof rack cargo carrier can provide over 10 feet of storage space, which is enough to store bulk items for a road trip. If you are traveling in an ATV for a hunting expedition, fishing or simply joyriding, you can consider investing in the ATV cargo carrier.
RV Carrier Accessories
Besides the RV cargo carriers, there are several accessories that you may need to carry to get out in the woods with family and friends. The accessories include cargo nets and cargo bags made from UV resistant vinyl and other water resistant materials. When purchasing a cargo bag, look out for something that is practical, versatile and sturdy to ensure continued usage. The best cargo nets in the market today combine the effectiveness of a rope with the convenience of a bungee cord. The cargo net also comes with several hooks that latch on the cargo carrier. The cargo net can be used on both roof rack, and hitch mounted cargo carrier. Depending on the cargo you want to carry and outdoor activity you want to engage in, you can also purchase a tie down and straps, sports ramp and lock and load bike buckle for your trip.
