    I own one of these StowAway2 devices that is probably 70-75lbs. Was thinking it could be useful on a trip if it didn't degrade the mileage very much. Anyone want to venture a guess on the range loss. I was only thinking a 5% or less.

    Range loss should be minimal, there's lots of turbulence back there anyway, I doubt it would make it significantly worse.
    It would definitely be better than either a trailer or a roof box.

    What green1 said. Likely a lot better than all the bikes I'll be carrying back there too!

    From tsw4life's thread see underlined in regards to range. Seems like it was not noticiable by comparision to my roadtrip experience in my X (10K miles roadtripping) -- NOTE you can to go this thread by clicking on the red up arrow next to "tsw 4life said:"
