Compare Hitch Racks

Hitch racks are a versatile and affordable way to carry your gear. Although some manufacturers may rate their rack capacities at up to 500 pounds, we recommend no more than 250 pounds of gear to stay within the most common hitch and vehicle tongue weight capacities. Most hitch racks are fixed or fold up for transport, but StowAway offers a cargo rack that swings out for clear access to the rear of your vehicle. A cargo bag can be used along with a hitch rack to keep your gear protected from the elements.
