Even though we own an SUV, it seems there’s never enough cargo space. Two dogs, two bikes (which princess prefers be inside the SUV) and more gear than is ever necessary. To help store all this gear, especially for long bike tours, my parents have a cargo carrier that we’ve borrowed several times. It’s great for the additional space and easy to access (rather than a roof-top cargo carrier). The only complaint I have is it is sometimes a pain to access stuff stored in the back of the SUV because the cargo box is in the way.
ROLA has made a cargo carrier with a swing away feature. It’s called the Adventure System w/Swing Away. This system has 13.5 cubic feet, 250 pounds of storage capacity. The box is removable from the tray so you can use the tray separately.
