    Cargo box for Model Y hitch

    Hi, I need just a bit more storage for road trips. Since I have a hitch, I’m thinking of skipping the roof rack / cargo setup and go with a hitch cargo box (less expensive setup, easier to remove vs roof rack). Any thoughts? Anyone has experience with such a setup?

    Hitch install in Richmond, VA?

    First off, I'm still open to any Model 3 single-bike hitch rack recommendations, but it seems the Stealth Hitch is probably the best way to go.

    Towing travel trailer with Model Y

    Installed an Eco Hitch on my M3. I also wired a 4 prong harness for about $25 in parts. The wiring is also completely hidden. It accelerates like I’m not pulling anything. The trailer has standard bulbs and works fine but I’m going to switch them out for LED.
