This allowed my wife and kids to stretch out while this road warrior kicked it on the Interstates of America!
on July 16, 2011
My wife, 2 boys, and I took a road trip from Oklahoma to D.C. We road trip every summer but with the boys growing so much, we needed some extra space in the ol' Pathfinder. I ordered this cargo carrier and assembly was quite simple, especially for someone like me. I also ordered the locking hitch so I didn't have to worry about theft.
We were able to fit 2 large suitcases and 1 large Nike bag on the carrier (1 suitcase laid down on one side, 1 suitcase sat vertical/straight up in the middle, and the bag was on the other side). The cargo carrier created so much room for my 2 boys and wife, they almost didn't know what to do! They were able to stretch out, watch movies, and even sleep comfortably while the "cargo" rode outside in the cargo carrier. I'm so glad I purchased it. I'm wishing I had bought one YEARS ago! But hey, this "CC" (as we called it) has plenty more miles and trips to go!
The CC also folds up easily and nicely and I never heard it rattle or make noise. I did use plenty of bungie cords to make sure my cargo wasn't going anywhere. Also, make sure you do make a Plan B in case of rain. I brought several 55 gallon trash bags and that did the trick.
I would highly recommend to anyone who loves "road-trippin" and would like some extra space in their vehicle to purchase this cargo carrier! I think my wife and boys would tell you to "get it so we have room to SLEEP!"
