    is that going to make loading and unloading easier? where do you store the straps when you are not using them? the guys that deliver to my store seem to unload pretty quickly with chains. is the fact that all the vehicles you are hauling will have an unloaded suspension going to have any effect on the way it pulls?

    Well so far It is taking me a lot longer to load and unload. There a few reasons behind the straps It is suppost to be easier on the shoulders and back. All the decks come down lower so the driver can stand on the ground and tie the units down (less slip and fall injurys). They keep telling us that all new cars will be hauled with straps Toyota/ GM are saying by 2008. I guess it saves them $ on punching holes in the frame for the chain tie downs. The straps are set up like the chain style there is a ratchet with the strap attached to it.

    Don't know how many I could fit on with all the wide / fat tires everyone runs. plus at 5.8 mpg it would get a little pricey.

    Trucks will have them for a while yet. Just think if you set up your trailer right with straps you wont need to get under a truck to put a hook in it. You won't even get dirty putting a truck you trailer.

    speaking of chains, i saw a driver the other day who had ALL new vettes on his rig, and the top rear car had chains holdin her down, well the chains were dangling, and scratching the fuCk out of the car below it (another vette) the rear window was also busted out.

    needless to say, he didn't have his ears on, so i couldn't let him know.


    also, i saw a soft top fly off a wrangler on a hauler the other day. anything like that ever happen to you?

    Besides the occasional chain that comes loose not really. When I was hauling used cars I had a bed liner turn inside out:doah:

    That is one nice rig, and it appears to still get better gas mileage than my K5.
