Trailer Hitch Mounted Storage Box fits the folding Kayak

On moving day, we attached this new nifty hitch mounted storage box to the camper to help get all our stuff off the summit and back to Oakland for the summer.  It's just roomy enough to hold the folded and packaged double expedition Feathercraft K-2 sea kayak we'll be traveling with this summer.  Installation was a breeze, although the hitch mounting screw/lock assembly that came with the unit conflicts with the trailer lights electrical socket mounted on the hitch.  I'll ned to do some work on that.  With a $13 connector from NAPA auto parts I was able to connect the male 7 pin (circular configuration) trailer light socket with the 4 in-line round pin connector that came with the storage box.  Still working on the how to mount the back-up camera that used to be attached to the license plate, but is now obstructed by the box.  Here are some pictures in a slide show format:

Hello,

Trailer hitches are a miracle cure for your elbow room blues. You can easily mount a cargo box or basket in your receiver hitch and pile your luggage. Trailer hitch accessories are now available to take the load off of you when it comes to hauling. Items such as aligners, Trailer hitch ball converters, locks - to include those with anti-rattle capabilities, step and stow and dual ball mounts are only a few of the numerous accessories available which will enhance the perform of the equipment under different and extreme conditions. Thanks...

@BancroftMartinez It is recommended to use a weight distribution hitch if experiencing too much Gross tongue weight(which is the amount of weight that rests directly on your vehicle’s towing capacity). A weight distribution hitch helps to distribute the tongue’s weight evenly. That is between the front and rear axle of the tow vehicle and trailer. Stability is then enhanced effecting comfortable steering.
In addition it is also important to acquire the right equipment that is compatible and pocket friendly by shopping online at Draw Tite Hitches.

The trailer hitches are so important. Can you imagine if someone was in a trailer and the hitch broke in Mississauga? That would be a terrible thing to happen.

Excellent post! I have always wanted to take my trailer hitch to Calgary with me so that I could haul the heavy duty equipment around. To me, it seems well worth it!

Jason Knight said...

That is pretty awesome!I live over in Calgary, and I have been thinking of putting the hitch mount on the back of my car, I want to even more now that I see this!

Sean Valjean said...

This is beyond awesome. I have never heard of a trailer hitch in Calgary being able to do this. I will have to look into getting one of these.

Which are your favorite providers for RV storage in Vancouver, WA? I have recently shifted there and need to store the things somewhere until finished the interior house fittings.

Bill Stewart said...

I could really use one of these. I need to get a trailer hitch from Mississauga tomorrow so then I could use one.

We have been thinking about getting a trailer hitch for our truck. We want to go camping in the woods tomorrow and we need some way to carry everything. I wonder how much a trailer hitch would cost. http://www.burnsvilletrailerhitchmn.com/

Can anyone suggest Caravan storage in Brisbane on discounted rates? I am finding from so many days but could not find any affordable service for storage. High rates and that I can’t afford.
