    Howdy. We just got a 2007, 24' class C motorhome. Quite a step up from the 1976 Aristocrat Lowliner I'm used to. I was wondering if I could get some pros and cons on the cargo carriers that slide into the hitch receiver. I was thinking of getting one of these to carry firewood. Most places we like to go don't allow gathering wood. I found one that's rated to 500 lbs. that folds up out of the way when not in use. Thanks for any help.....rimshot

    I see no problem with it as I doubt you will be carrying 500 lb of firewood. Just wrap it up so it want be falling off :eek: . Also remember that any weight added to the back can affect handleing but as I said doubt you will be adding much.

    You should be fine. About the only con I can think of is remembering it's back there when backing up. :eek: :eek:
