Best way to carry two Honda generators? I was told I could remove the rear spare and replace it with a carrier and carry my 2 suitcase generators. It looks like either that or carrying them in my SUV. Any advice?

How much do they weigh?  That rear carrier is limited as to weight.  The spare tire is somewhat under the capacity.  As I recall 150lbs was max.

+1 Furpod, not a good idea, unless some added support happened.

Thanks guys. You're why I'm here. And what this forum is all about. I will carry them in my SUV. I have them clean on the inside which is probably the only safe way to carry them.
