I have a cargo carrier that fits in a trailer hitch for gas, trash, stuff I don't want in the bed.


For me experiences are not good or bad, just different

That would work if I had room to store a trailer. I live in the shadows of the Chicago skyline on a tiny suburban lot. And for times when I'm pulling the camper, it would be awkward to hitch a trailer behind that.

I like the cargo carrier idea. One of the reasons we have a truck is that DW is into gardening and likes to take a bunch of drywall buckets up to BIL's place to get manure and the cargo carrier might do the trick and she can back it up easier than a utility trailer.

youbet, many of the utility trailers can be stored upright (tongue up) and take up much less space if that is an option for you.
