 Many modern cars come without spare wheels or can lose the spare-wheel well when converted for gas. Without the security of a spare-wheel then a simple puncture can become a nightmare of waits for a recovery vehicle then local hunting to find an appropriate tyre. Particularly at weekends or in the middle of the night this can make a disaster of any journey. With a bak-rak Wheel-rak and a spare wheel on the towball a solution is available.

REVIEW - Recent review of boxes in Autoexpress

has bak-rak as the best buy, https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/106025/best-towbar-mounted-storage-boxes

The alternatives on the market are the Thule Easybase system which is a copy of the bakrak concept - it carries 60kg and is £143 for its base unit (the box sells for an extra £269 and the thule box can fit on a bak-rak base-rak to carry more weight).   See http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thule-Easybase-Backup-420-Litre/dp/B001CC6XOM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1318591200&sr=8-2

Or the Westfalia Portilo system which carries 45 kg sells for £280 plus £329 for the bike rack it mounts on. See http://www.pfjones.co.uk/westfalia-portilo-cargo-box.html
