Hitch Cargo Carrier/Bike Rack

Anyone have a good recommendation on a cargo carrier that uses the hitch? Need a spot to put luggage etc during family trips. I'm also looking for a good bike rack carrier recommendation. Thoughts?

I can recommend the Thule Apex swing-away bike carrier.

I have had mine for about a year now on my 2013 JKUR. It is sturdy, holds up to 4 bikes and swings open enough to open the tail gate and back glass. This works for the 32" tires I have on the Rubicon, it might be a tight fit if you have a larger spare.
I bought this carrier; Masterbuilt H482FW HITCH-HAUL Sport Cargo Carrier: Automotive I liked the high clearance design, cheap price, light weight, narrow enough to not block the tail lights ( although I installed LED tail lights on the carrier) only issue I had and I was expecting was interference with my 35/12.50 spare tire. I fabricated an extra 4" length to the 2" tubing to clear my spare. If your running stock size tires it would clear easy.
Also you need one of these

Thanks for the inputs! Those are way cheaper than the ones I was looking at. The Curt and Rola models are pretty nice. Would be cool to get one that I can use both the carrier and the bike rack together.
Another thing to consider is getting a normal hitch mounted bike rack and get an extension to clear the tire.
