Spare Tire Trash Bag - The Trasharoo

I saw this new product at the 2009 Pomona Off Road Expo. It's pretty cool and acts like a spare tire cover which helps protect against sun damage and weather wear and makes a great trash bag.

RE: “TRASHAROO” Spare Tire Trash Bag

There isn't a single one of us who is against the "Tread Lightly" philosophy, and many of us pack out our own trash, but how many of us pick up trash when we see it? Or, how often do we end up with some nasty burrito or sandwich wrapper in the vehicle and end up smelling it for the rest of the trip? Trash should be kept outside where we can't smell it, it can't drip on interior parts, and there should be more than enough room in a trash bag for what you bring and what ever you might find and want to pick up. The problem is, hanging a X-gallon Hefty bag off the back of your vehicle doesn't work too well, one bump and its gone; and the old-style canvas bags that many of us are fond of flop around back there- damaging paint, and sometimes dropping more trash than they hold.

Enter the Trasharoo. With high-quality wide buckles, denier nylon, a heavy-duty attachment to your existing external spare tire, and positive-closing cover, you can haul away all the trash you accumulate in a weekend and maybe even make the trails a little cleaner as you go, without having to turn the inside of your rig into a disposal site. The Trasharoo, made by CTP Inc, has been in testing for the last year, and with over 20 years of off-roading and overlanding experience to the owners name, CTP knows what it takes to survive the rigors of off-road travel and what the off-roader needs.

The owner was sick and tired of having his trash floating around in his rigs, and hated that the trash he picked up- which had been who knows where- would also occasionally be messing up his rig. Similar products are sold today in Australia, but the price to get them here would out way the cost of the product. So CTP decided to fill the void and make their own.
