Default Towing a 28 Phaeton

This weekend I will be towing my Phaeton 60 miles at 60 mph in an open trailer. Should I have the top up or down, boot on or off, windshield on or off?


Thanks for the help,
James

mostly depends on the condition.


they drive at 60 mph and are fine.


if worried, put the top down, boot on and open windshield, but it shouldnt be necessary.


Towed my 30 roadster with top up a few months back at 60mph and I hit some really bad pot holes. Lost a wind wing and that was it. went 600 miles.........

I ususally trailer phaeton with top down, and I also strap thecloth top somehow so it doesn't fly up or out. Screen I leave upright
ALso wise to either tape down or remove the windscreen wiper blade- they can lift off an fly away at over 50 mph.
