    Anyone use a hitch trailer for hauling bikes and stuff?

    I'm looking for a hitch trailer that I could use for long family trips that will be able to haul a the bikes as well as the rest of our crap. I'm thinking maybe a trailer that has a roof that I can throw a rack on. I'd also want to use it for dump runs and hauling landscaping stuff. Anyone come across something like this?

    I searched all over the place and I couldn't find anything resembling what I'd want so I picked up the 1up hitch rack and I'll do the cartop carrier thing. It's all going on a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

    That is what I was looking for but holy crap that's expensive! I'm thinking I'll go with the Congo Rack and car top carrier so I can run it with either hard or soft top.

    I travel from NY to Fl a LOT in a Suburban. I really don't want to pull a trailer all that way, so I got a 4 bike T2 and a Thule roof box. The roof box is the best thing ever. It holds a ton of crap, is quiet and opens/closes from both sides.
    I like turtles
