Got a class III hitch put on my Renegade at UHaul. They had one heck of a time getting it on...took FOREVER...so I'm glad I didn't decide to tackle it myself. They were cool about it though and refunded me the labor cost, so it was installed for free. I skipped out on a wiring harness for now...but that's likely something that will come later.
The interior of the Renegade is lacking in the space department, especially when there's 4 people inside. So, my thought is I'll get a hitch-mounted cargo carrier. I can then put the cooler, firewood and other such items on there when we go camping. Will likely pick one up on Thursday since we're going to leave Friday for 2 days of camping.
We're also going to head down to Florida in late November to visit family and the hitch carrier will come in handy then too. I think we'll camping somewhere on the way down and on the way back rather than staying at a hotel...much more fun that way.
Eventually I'll get a trailer, the rooftop tent will go on there, my roof rack will be opened up for the mounting of other items, and all my problems will be solved.
I bought and put together the hitch cargo carrier. It's rated for 500 pounds, so it shouldn't have an issue handling the cooler, WaterPort and firewood for our camping trip tomorrow. When not in use it can either be folded up or removed, both of which are really easy to do.
