Finally used ours and I must admit they are handy and bang for buck. I even wondered about the tolls but no same as just the car itself.
Now I would not carry 500 lbs because that's a lever and would apply more than that on the tongue of the hitch receiver.
It did take a little bit of getting used to seeing the cargo rock and still I don't think it's worth it to buy a clamp to tighten it, imho that's how it's designed and it'd do the same with a trailer hitch.
Also, after the first few miles I no longer cared if people tailgated, I thought though you must really trust my ability to lash the grill down!
That's one of the best $153 I've spent, really, very useful...I believe the size is 24x60. There's a really nice enclosed one I saw onlne and it even has lights and a license plate bracket, and swings away for the hatch to open. But $800+.....
this is the one I got and looks like similar to everything else, price has gone up...
This is the really cool one
I like the enclosed one, if for nothing else but to keep things dry and clean, but it has a big disadvantage in what it can carry sizewise and can only hold 200 pounds. Plus, I have a Jeep Wrangler with a spare tire on the gate, and the gate swings out to open, not up, so that could be a problem for rear access.
Although the one from home depot is not bad, i like not "revealing" what I'm carrying, even though I carry worthless items.
The stowaway one is great for that.
