If you want to transport a lot, you can not avoid additional boxes for your luggage. Often these boxes are installed on the roof, but this has some disadvantages. It is therefore advisable to use a BackCarrier or a support module, which on the Trailer hitch is put on. Of course, the permissible load of the trailer hitch must be taken into account with these coupling boxes.
many variants, good functionality
The prerequisite for the backbox is an existing or retrofitted trailer coupling that supports the box holder. There are also boxes that are individually tailored to the respective vehicle type, which can be easily assembled, however, an assistant is often necessary for assembly, as these are rather bulky components. Many boxes have variable interchangeable inserts so that wide objects such as skis can also be transported. Most of the boxes are made of scratch-resistant, sturdy plastic and can be folded down for easy access to the trunk. Thanks to universal technology, many models can also be used on different cars, which is particularly relevant when changing vehicles. Most of the required rear lights in the box consist of modern LED light technology - for this a connector set is required on the rear of the vehicle, just like with a trailer. A copy of the license plate must also be attached to the box.
lockable locks solid always series
The theft protection is usually realized by lockable locks on the trailer hitch. Depending on the equipment variant, material and manufacturer, the prices are very different and start at about 120 Euro for simple models am going to the four-digit range. And even for the cheapest premium variants including carriers and interchangeable inserts are quickly due a few hundred euros. But the purchase is worthwhile for anyone who wants to increase their trunk volume quickly and easily and do not want to give up comfort.
BackBox: clear advantages!
The backbox has clear advantages over a roof box, which in particular improve comfort when using and driving. The lower position makes loading and unloading much easier - the roof box on an SUV can be very difficult to reach. In addition, there is less wind noise while driving (Roof boxes can be annoyingly loud!). The better aerodynamics also make driving behavior safer: therefore there is a clearance up to 160 km / h. If the vehicle also has a level control on the rear axle, you hardly notice the additional box. And the lower air resistance also reduces fuel consumption. However, it should not be forgotten: a fully loaded, heavy backbox leads to a change in the center of gravity and naturally lengthens the vehicle - this must always be taken into account when reversing. Unfortunately, the boxes usually cover an existing reversing camera, while the parking sensors continue to work from time to time. Often, however, these are also automatically deactivated when connected to the power socket. With some models it may even be necessary to switch off the sensors completely by programming, otherwise a permanent alarm is triggered.
At the end... A backbox is a useful way to increase the luggage volume without one roof box having to use or a cumbersome trailer. However, compatibility with your own vehicle and the drawbar load of the trailer coupling must be taken into account - then nothing stands in the way of good convenience when loading luggage.
