What Can I Fit in a Cargo Carrier?

Before you go on your next trip, you’re going to be thinking about how to pack your car to the fullest. Maybe you know that your trunk isn’t going to fit everything you’d like it to, but towing a trailer seems like it might be a little too much for you. Before trying to cram in something that won’t fit or biting the bullet and choosing to add on a trailer, here’s what can fit in different types of a cargo carrier:

What Can Fit in a Cargo Carrier

Waterproof Cargo Carrier Bag

The Waterproof Cargo Carrier Bag is designed to easily fit in your hitch mounted cargo carrier connection. It can also be laid in the bed of a truck. When the bag is not in use, it folds up for compact storage. When in use, your belongings will be nice and dry inside, no matter how rainy it may be. If you don’t fill the bag all the way, you can pull the straps to tighten the bag to add extra security. Whether you’re looking to add extra space to your vehicle or just protect the items in the bed of your truck from weather conditions, the Waterproof Cargo Carrier is the perfect tool for the job. If you choose to pack your belongings in a hitch mounted cargo carrier like this one, you still have the option of adding on another pack to your rooftop.
