Towing vehicle with a cargo tray

Hello everyone, I want to tow my toad but I also want to be able to have one of those cargo trays on the back of the rv. I want to put a cargo bag on it. The 25.2 Vegas just doesn't have all the outside storage we need. What would be the best set up for this to work safely, Or is it one of those things you don't do while towing while towing. Thank you all for your suggestions/recommendations

Does the toad have a hitch? Could you put the tray on the back of the toad?

That's an idea I would have to add a hitch on the toad. Thank you I will certainly look into that

Cargo tray and Towed

I use the tray and pull a towed at the same time. I needed a drop-hitch for my tow-bar anyways so I simply bought a Roadmaster drop-hitch with a dual receiver.


I also use it with our bicycle rack too. Looks kinda like picture below (this isn't my rig).

What sort of Toad are we talking about? Perhaps the cargo bag can be made to fit inside of it.

Hello Bob Denman and thank you I have decided to put the carrier bag in the back of the car. After measuring the height of the hitch at 18.5" high and the car height 16.5" high I will look into an adapter like ScottyB410 showed. Just to bring the height differences a little closer. Now on those trips were the bikes will be used I will put a rack on the back of the car like JamieGeek mentioned. I thank you all, Now I have to figure out what kind of portable ice machine I need! Decisions Decisions....
