Gearspace 34 Cargo Carrier

I just purchased an Interstate 3500 EXT Lounge. Does anyone know if a Gearspace 34 Cargo Carrier when fully extended allows you to open either or both back doors?

Not sure exactly which cargo carrier I had but it swung out enough to open the doors but I would have to hold the door open. It would not allow the door to extend all the way so it would stay on its own. I bought an aluminum toolbox and had it custom tailored with lights etc and mounted it on the frame.....so took the black plastic carrier off.

Thanks! I bought the Gearspace 34 with the hitch that extends out far enough to open the back doors fully. If I need to remove the storage pod, the unit I purchased has 4 legs with wheels to roll away.

would you mind telling me where you purchased your Gearspace 34? There appear to be several places on line to purchase one but i did not see anything about the legs to roll it away when removed.

Do you transfer the license plate to the pod when you're using it? In Louisiana, at least, it's illegal to obscure the license plate, which includes blocking it with a cargo pod. That's one reason why I've only used a cargo tray, not a box.

I made a color copy of my plate, laminated it and put it on the box. Looks exactly like the original that is on the van.

Might even be legal, too, as long as the original plate stays on the vehicle.

Gearspace 34

Sorry for super late response. You can purchase it at Let's Go Aero. Including the wheels that support roll on and off applications. The box is better supported by the 4 leg version over 3 leg version for rolling with weight so you do not have to unload.

On the web site you can see pic of license plate on left bottom.

A rolling version sounds interesting. Plus, it would make it easy to detach, secure (usually a long aircraft cable is good enough), and use as a marker at campgrounds to keep people from taking your site.

Just got my GearSpace 34 yesterday. This thing is huge! Hopefully our new luggage capacity will inspire some extended trips in the future.

I too bought the heavy duty 4-legged landing gear. I do have a small issue they are working to resolve. The website and helpful sales person both recommended that I go with the longer of their two leg length options based on my hitch pin height of 15.5". Unfortunately I found that the legs are actually slightly too long to allow them to swing easily from the extended to folded position (or visa versa). They are shipping me the shorter legs to swap out next week. Once I have them in place I will report back. Overall I am impressed with the box and their customer service.

One other note. They warned me to inspect the packaging closely when it came off of the truck (due to size it ships via UPS Freight). Sure enough, there was a tear in the cardboard where a fork lift grazed it and there is some slight cosmetic abrasion to the box. I had the driver document it but I have not decided if I am going to bother filing a claim. It's just enough to bother me a little bit but nowhere near enough that I would actually send it back for replacement. It's kind of like that first door ding in a new car. Grrrr.

This is really good info. Although I ordered my box, I have not tried installation yet because I am having the interior seats redone. Did the shorter legs work for you vs. the longer legs?
