Now thats what I'm talkin bout! That is the very definition of creative loading! :thumbs:
Brian, you already have the largest stock pile of GT's in Texas! :bigrofl: I know what you mean about always wanting more! This really is a very serious addiction, and the problem is that its legal, and considered acceptable, so we even have forums where we can talk to thousands of others suffering from the same affliction, and talk about where we're going to get our next fix! :thumbs:

Maybe you bring your friend along to drive his van back home, so the trailer would be empty. Or put a ball on the back of the trailer and a hitch on the front of the van. Gotta make your trip worth while.

Don't forget that you can legally be 13' 6" tall.

Don't get me thinking that way Nate! You'll have me coming home looking like the Beverly Hillbillies, and it might be a little hard on the paint job having GT's stacked on top of it! :bigrofl:

What Kenny really means is that you can drop off anything you can't haul at his place :rocker2:

Hey, I could meet him and help clean up the property. What I could really use is more attachments: cultivators, discs, etc!

Lets see. The Caddy pulls the Van loaded side-to-side with 4. The Caddy trunk lid is tied to the roof of the van, making room for 2 in the trunk with wheels removed-and stowed in the front seat. The trailer, carries 8, with tires/wheels removed and stowed in the front seat of the Dodge--, 2 more go in the bed of the tow vehicle, which makes a grand total of 16-problem solved.

This will Definately require PICS

Sounds like a fun trip. Maybe one you will have to do again soon.

Does the van have sto&go? If so, just take some cardboard for the floor and a couple of boards for ramps.
Don't forget ratchet straps to hold the load in the van.

I can see at least 3 GT's in that load. Short bed may be an issue, and is it the long or short wheelbase on the van?

Oh, does the van have a roof rack? (just kidding)
