    Hitch Cargo with Pass Through Rack Receiver?

    I'm taking a trip and was looking to take my bike(s) with me as well as a hitch mounted cargo carrier. I have a Saris Thelma 2 rack, but I wanted to mount it off the back of a hitch mounted cargo carrier. Do they make something like this? I'd like to use my existing bike rack and not a "combo" from some place like discountramps.com Anyone know of anything?

    I've seen that, but that would be a crazy long lever arm.

    Class IV hitch plus Aux lights maybe.

    I'd get a cargo box for the roof instead.

    I'd be a little concerned with stuff hanging that far off the hitch.

    We use a Yakima Skybox on the roof & Kuat NV off the back.

    I know some stores rent the roof boxes for a small fee.
