I want one too... or something on the hitch so you can put a small tent on top of it. Every year, it rains for me... love to have something where I can put a tent above the ground.Is there a company that makes one?...somethign that would be for 1 or 2 people. If not, I think it would be cool to have one...
haha, that is what i was thinking too. That thing is only 5 ft long though. Who could fit in there?so like an over sized one of these:
24x60 Railed Cargo Carrier for 2" Trailer Hitches 63153 : Trailer hitch bike rack and trailer hitches - etrailer.com
With a tent built on it? This one is 24" x 60"
Most of these type of cargo carriers are this size as a maximum with 500 lb load limit.
it is an interesting idea though.
found these boxes:
Fixed Hitch Mount Cargo Boxes
still a tad bit small to sleep in...
x2Not to be a naysayer, but wouldn't a tent, with about 2 people in it exceed the "tongue weight" max for the stock hitch? Without getting into the "mechanics", 2 people, say at a minimum about 300 lbs, acting 3 feet out, makes the load 900 lbs effective at the hitch as a cantilever. That's being conservative. I'm not saying it can't be done, but without some sort of extra support, I wouldn't recommend it.
I couldn't sleep in that one. I am 5' 8" and Hubby is 6' plus some...... We need a little more room but the concept is cool. I am actually thinking of one that we can pull behind the FJ that has a little more room than that. I don't know that I want a FULL expidition one but hmmmmm.... A light version of an expo would be really cool.
