That discharge hose is a great idea I'll get some of it today. I've used sections of fire hose similarly for climbing ropes over the cliff but where can you get a couple feet of that...

LuckyStripe, that's a cool paint job, I love the blue wheels and the green wheels in an earlier reply.

There is a supply house that sells raw materials to build trailers,and now they have a retail outlet online to sell to anybody.They are called Nuera.They now sell all the consumer oriented stuff,straps,chains,toolboxes,etc.They have some real nice options for straps,and they have sleeved straps to go over axles without chafing.They used to be only wholesalers at their warehouses,but have gone into the online retail thing.

Speedway and Jeg’s have an excellent assortment of tie downs and trailering essentials at reasonable prices.

I took mine home on a uhaul trailer from Texas to Florida. I did cover the front windshield, headlights and horn with cardboard and I had no damage at all. Hugh

I have used a Uhaul trailer with my ‘31 Wagon a couple of times. The tire straps were OK at best, but required monitoring. I checked them every 100 miles or so, sooner early in the drive. One time a wheel strap nearly came completely off at the ‘early stop’.

The straps barely wrapped on the 19” wheels on the transporters we had. Extra straps are recommended if you have them. If you don’t have them, consider getting some. Otherwise it was a great trailer to tow. I did see the other post with the Tudor—there must be some variation in the straps provided during production, because the ones we rented did not wrap as well at that one looks. Extra straps is my recommendation even if they do fit. Too much is not a problem.
