Harbor Freight Hitch Basket

For a recent day trip involving 5 adults, 3 dogs, and our gear, I picked up one of these to carry our coolers.  It worked great.

Harbor Freight sells 2 or 3 different ones, and this is the least expensive.  I was able to pick it up for about $50 with a coupon.  In short, it is well worth the money.

The basket needs to be assembled but this is easily done with basic hand tools.  I put mine together in about 15 minutes or so.  It is well-built, made of painted steel.  Construction is sturdy, and it is a handy size.  We fit 2 medium coolers on it side-by side, and secured with a ratchet strap.

Read the reviews if you need more information, but I highly recommend this carrier.  It’s great for hauling coolers or dirty / sandy equipment you don’t want to carry in the car.
