GearDeck™ 17 Carries Portable Generators to Power Travel Trailers

August 30, 2014

One of the many uses for the GearDeck™ 17 enclosed hitch cargo carrier is to transport generators for travel trailers. The capsule’s interior dimensions of 46”L x 24”W x 26”H are an excellent fit for most portable generators up to 5,000 watts. The ground level access with raised hinged lid lends itself to work and utility related uses. 

The dual tube design of the carrier’s TwinTube® platform and integrated Silent Hitch Pins® 
provides exceptional strength and stability for heavy-duty applications, and in conditions where there’s greater vibration such as on the back of towable RVs.

The popularity of the GearDeck™ 17 cargo carrier for generator transport is driven by a real need for it. A compelling example is with the travel trailer and fifth wheel towable RVs. With few models offering built-in generators, the towable RV owner must look to an auxiliary means for storage.

"Provides exceptional strength and stability..."

This became apparent to Dave Long during his recent purchase of the Milan Travel Trailer. Learn first hand about his experiences from research to acquisition of the GearDeck™ 17. We thank Dave for sharing his insights in this self-produced video.
