Basket for Hauling

Any recommendations on baskets that mount to your trailer hitch? I was looking for something to carry a cooler and a few bags.

Doesn't rust & light weight.

They also have in black...but not aluminum.

I use the aluminum one and load it up...no complaints. Not much room behind the ST rear seat. I am on the fence converting to SW jump seats to "taint" it's originality but I love the jump seat look in an ST.

I was thinking the same thing...if I don't want to hook up the Sankey I could just slap this on. I need the bench with the carseat for the kid so that's gotta stay for me .

I have the SW seats, so I am biased, I like the space. Funny enough, I've thought about the Exmoor folding seats though so we can add a car seat. Our golden retriever would appreciate this rack though as my Yeti cooler is enormous!

Totally. Plus if you are going somewhere its a breeze to unload.. you can just pull the pin and have two people slide the loaded rack off....done.

Plus aluminum should match the LE diamond plating.

Hahahah, I'll one up you. I picked mine up today, and I used it! I ended up getting the black powder coated model. It was $60 with tax, used the coupon. I've never shopped at Harbor Freight before. It was funny to watch everyone checking out with tons of coupons. I felt like I was watching that extreme couponing show on TLC.

As with all things HF, caveat emptor... don't put anything that you really care about/need in it 'cause it might be powder coated sawdust...

Coupon? Check! HF and new basket, here I come...

Need a 2" receiver extension to make it work better?
How about a front 2" receiver? Would that work better?

that plus I've never found one that sit just right. seems like they move around too much and I have never had one that was a good quality. I have one now that hasn't been used in 6 or so years.
