Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier
I apparently posted this thread in the wrong forum before, and I know similar stuff has been talked about, but I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a lightweight hitch-mounted cargo carrier for road-tripping? I talked with my Kia center and they said if I wasn't planning to install wiring that a CURT hitch for my 2017 Kia Niro wouldn't affect the warranty (of course, with the "unless something were to happen that could be directly linked to the hitch" clause). The main thing is they want close to $1000 to install the rails and cargo box on the roof, and I feel like the rear carriers would have far less drag and preserve more gas mileage. We're a family of 3 and we road trip often, and it would be perfect if we just had that little bit of extra space. Any tips, opinions, thoughts, or recommendations on hitch-mounted carriers?
