My son picked up a luggage rack the other day that we will likely use on the driverís side running board on our 1923 Touring someday. I am toying with putting a vintage suitcase in the rack, or a wicker basket, or oil/gas/water cans.
If you have a luggage rack and youíre hauling something with it, please post your pictures so we can see what others are doing with these. Also, if you have interesting contents in your luggage or basket or other items, please share the details. Thanks.
I carry a water can strapped in. What ever doesnt fit in the bed. At OCF I had people in the back so my copper boiler was my ice chest so it went on the running board. Groceries, extra feed bags from the mill. Whatever is needed
I found a wicker "magazine basket" on Ebay that I put in my luggage rack. Usually, the basket is empty unless I put groceries or my 2 1/2 gallon gas can in it .
When I'm at home it carries groceries.
On a trip it carries tent, foam pad, sleeping bag, and a few smaller items.

Here is another carrier.
So far, anything that needs hauled that will fit !

I like the side racks but the rear racks are nice too.
It's kinda hard to go wrong with a wicker basket.
They make great storage compartments and always look period-correct.
Good for pets too.
The first picture is what is on there most of the time but sometimes there is more.
Dennis, that "chuck wagon" cabinet is super !! How do you secure it on the car ? I love seeing these Ts all loaded up for a road trip !!
On the War Wagon, I carry a roll of canvas and the tire rim spreader as a talking point. I have unrolled the canvas on several occasions to lay on the ground and tighten something on the T. The light open express body holds all the ammo boxes and field gear, so the luggas rack is a little overkill. But I got one, so I use one.
Rich, I have rubber belting under the kitchen to raise it up to the height of the bead on the running board and 2 bolts thru the bottom then a rubber grommet between the kitchen and the body and use a shortened bike axle with the cam over nut to be able to adjust tension. It works really well and comes off quickly.
I couldnt find a luggage rack that would suit, so made my own that is easily removed as it uses the same holding positions as the Top. JohnO Perth Western Australia

We used to put the stroller on the running board with the diaper bag and cooler etc, but we solved that problem a few years ago.
