Loaded up!

Wanted to start a new thread showing equipment and other stuff and some unique ways of loading gear, surfboards, bikes, SUPs and pretty much anything else.

Here's mine and it's not much, but it's the first time I've had 2 sups on top. Plenty more room so it's not my last post by far.

I had 30 sheets of drywall on top of the 109 once. I also fit an entire Ikea kitchen in the LewB, like 18 cabinets, a pantry and all the countertops toe kicks, doors and hardware. had no room except for me!

Nice stack! I haven't taken any pics of the 90 with boards up top yet but the ST holds them well. Can even go side by side with the narrower boards. But this year the 'Burban has been the main surf taxi - too many kids and boards!

Bill - 30 sheets of 'rock on the roof?! That is insane. Must have taken forever to load and unload. Or was the loader fired up?

I took corners REAL SLOW but I did get it where it was going. Ya 1/2 inch 4x8 sheets. I stood on a stack and was able to pretty much slide it on straight off the pile onto the (ginormous Brownchurch) rack. I had help at the other end unloading.
Thing was, the ride was really great with the 4 leaf parabolics actually deflecting. It was scary top heavy.

Reminds me of an email i got yesterday....

Home Depot Customer

My friends, I give you . .
THE DUMBEST GUY ON EARTH!?

This picture is real and was taken by a Transportation
Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials
for 84 Lumber. When he saw it in the parking lot of IHOP,
he went to buy a camera to take pictures.

The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust.

The driver finally came back after the police were called,
and was found crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting
to cut the twine around the load! Luckily, the police stopped him
and had the load removed.

The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager
said they made the customer sign a waiver.

While the plywood and 2X4s are fairly obvious, what you can't see
is the back seat, which contains -- are you ready for this? --
10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each!

They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs. Both back tires exploded,
the wheels bent and the rear shocks were driven through the floorboard.
And to top it off, He had an Obama/ Biden bumper sticker.

And these people VOTE

That picture has been making the rounds of the Internet for at least six years. Long before any Obama Biden connection.
One more piece of Republican bullshit.

I've got to ask:
1) why not tow it?
2) those things are heavy...how the hell did you get it up there?

It was not street legal (freshly imported), it was Xmas vacations and was not in a running state. A fork lift was used to load it up and I used gravity to help unload it. Bloody nightmare to drive with gravity center that high. At least its a straight and flat line from Barrie to Tewkesbury.

I'm still having trouble picturing you unloading it! Regarding street legal...shouldn't let that stop you:

This is the opposite of what this thread is about. Do you think this guy had this motorcycle trailer and just figured why not maybe he bought it to haul a backpack?

A little camping / light wheeling last weekend. No joke in addition to the circus you see here was inside the car: me, pregnant wife, 2 year old son, and two German Shepherds.

Yes...if we go down (or in this case "up"), then we do it as a family! Only one near fire...until the number climbs I won't sweat it. Galpins had all sorts of fires, and he is my "Rover hotline". So I don't get nervous until he does! Plus I think there's like 3 fire extinguishers in there now.

Dude I think this calls for you to trailer up!...Our getaway is now delayed until Sunday morning, but once we are gone there is no real timeline (within reason) for coming back so...
