Default Re: Tie down wheels or axles when towing

I know nothing about wood, but most serious hurricanes don't seem to be bothered by diagonals....

If you have been around cars more than ten minutes, you know 'poop happens'. Study Truly's anchoring of the black Ford Roadster. Besides diagonals (???), an additional straight strap, PLUS vertical side boards against the tires preventing the car from shifting.

We won't agree on his methods but it does appear he knows 'poop happens' by his extra precautions.

Most paved roads are banked so the water
will drain to the curb side.

My experience - vehicles will move to the curb
side in or on your trailer as you pull it down the
road.

I use surface mount etrac as an anchoring method.

Sometimes I will take etrac wood sockets and run
a length of dimensional lumber to keep a vehicle
from shifting inside the trailer.

Thumbs up Tie down wheels or axles when towing

Thank You Dale !

I leave from Orcas Island, WA on the ferry tomorrow.
Head down to Everett, WA to pick up my trailer.

I have been also moving travel trailers ….





Then I go to Bend, Oregon to pick up this
1970 Chevelle magazine cover car and transport
it to Iowa …..





Then I head to Kansas to pick up this
1941 Pick Up Truck that a repeat customer
has been waiting patiently for me since May
to haul for him to Delaware ….






Jim

Lightbulb Six point tie down

I just dropped off this 1970 Chevelle SS in Iowa today.
A six figure car - multiple national awards - magazine covers .
As with all vehicles - loaded & unloaded by wireless remote.

Four point tie down at the rear to the axle & frame:





Two point tie down at the front - winch line was left connected.

A Beautiful Chevelle SS
