When on vaca to the beach (FIVE people in the B) this summer
Brought 1 clothing bag, plus one "play" bag, per person, beach bag w/ blanket, towels, goggles, floaty-stuff, etc) stroller, 3 boogie boards, 4 bikes, and a decent amount of food.
Carried inside the B (people, food, and some personal bags),
cargo box (rest of bags, beach bag, etc.)
Hitch-mounted bike carrier (3 bikes, one with attached child-carrier
On rack, exposed- 3 boards, 1 bike
All my accessory-cargo stuff was put-to-use. If I wanted, I probably could have mounted the basket (w/ overhang) and carried more, but trying to limit the inherent drag.
With all that, I got 23-24 MPG at 75-ish MPH, when travelling. Not bad!
