Stor N Boat cargo carrier doubles as a boat

| Updated Dec 10, 2013

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.

If it covers the license plate, you can get a ticket. That goes for anything you stick on the rear, see it all the time.

Cute idea, but the cost is a little steep.

RT Campskunk, I have a PortaBote and I think it’s quite stable. It doesn’t FEEL like it at first as it flexes way more than people are used to, but once you get used to it it doesn’t bother you. Mine is just a touch too large to be truly portable though…wish I’d gotten the 8′ one.

Awesome. Although that might lead to parking problem – considering that etrek is already 20 feet ish long already?

And normal parking space is around 19 feet ish?

part of my overly ambitious plans when starting out RVing was to carry a boat- the Porta-Boat caught my eye. it’s a folding boat that folds flat and can be carried on an RV roof or side rack. i never followed through on it, and am kind of glad i didn’t, since i have run into people who did and reported to me that the Porta-Boat was very unstable, more like a canoe than a regular rowboat. the one you’re describing here looks more stable.

Try a pakboat – see: These things are tough as nails! May not look like it, but they are being used for expedition canoeing in some challenging environments. Packs up into a duffel bag that can be checked as 50# baggage.
