Hitch mounted cargo carrier

I would like to buy a Stowaway2 swingaway hitch mounted cargo carrier for my 2012 Honda Fit. Has anyone used one? I would like to know if ground clearance is a problem as the receiver sits very low to the ground. I would be carrying light items like cleaning and laundry products in it.

Ground clearance is based upon your vehicle and hitch receiver. Only danger of dragging is the same with an RV, length of overhang and steepness of driveway ramp. You can alway add a wheel or skid plate under the carrier if needed.

The Reviews of others appear positive overall,

I would be more concerned with exceeding the weight limit of that hitch which is, at best, 150lbs. Why not just get a plastic storage box and toss it in the back of the Fit? We carry our bikes in the Fit and still have room for the normal hatch space behind the rear seats.
