This is pretty cool: A cargo container that fits in the two-inch trailer hitch connection at the back of an RV that doubles as a boat.

I ran into the Stor N Boat system at the recent Recreational Vehicle Industry Association trade show in Louisville had thought it worthy of a quick video.

The Stor N Boat can fit into a two-inch trailer hitch receiver

The idea here is that the top of the carrier is really a boat, big enough for two people. The cargo box holds 14.7 cubic feet of storage for your gear and luggage and the top – or the boat – is 42″ wide x 96″ long x 16 ” depth and even is set up for a small  2 hp outboard to be mounted on the back. It felt pretty rugged, made of high-density, UV-protected, 3/16” impact resistant polyethylene with ¼” polyethylene foam walls for added durability.

Cargo capacity s 14.7 cubic feet

It comes with three seats that can be removed s you have lots of storage underneath when affixed to the top of the cargo carrier.

It also is available as a rooftop carrier.

Weight capacity for the boat is 450 pounds including up to two people and gear.

They told me at the show that retail cost is around $1,200.
