Ah, finally I can load easily. When I ordered my trailer I had intended to pull it with a smaller truck and I was going to have a smaller buggy than the Tiger. That being said, I went with a 7'-wide trailer. Short part of the story is that it is a precarious loading situation that either is dangerous or involves a lot of swearing and sweat. For those of you that have helped me squeeze the Tiger in previously, I am forever thankful. Now, I can do the whole operation in a few minutes all by myself without tearing up everything (tires, cables, ramp, clutch, etc...).

The winch was a Xmas or birthday present from last year. Works great and is easy to use. I took a few snaps of the loading process...hardly any stress on the winch and minimal tension on the cable.

I'm glad it went well, if you cinch the steering wheel in place, it will come out even easier.

Nice job Tedpilot. Trying to give stixs a run for he money on packing ease. That sure looked easier and a hole lot safer. That means you can ride longer, winch up and run home. Nothing like finding a way get five more minutes of ride time in. Maybe have a winch a tiger in the truck/trailer race between you and Drakman. We can do it after lunch and get some side bets going.

Now that he has seen the light on the winch, I am pretty sure he will beat loading, but, I think I can beat him in the sand.

Sounds like a challange. That would be fun to watch. Sounds like Drakman can not wait to get new and improved tiger in the sand. I can't wait to see.

Damn that's a nice buggy! Hey Drak make sure next time loading, your box is facing east and not west. I plan on having a couple Silver Bullets so I might lose my balance on the picnic table, plus Im a crappy table dancer. Draktwin

Table dancing...??? Stix, come on now I didn't need that visual. And...uh, how do you know you are a bad table dancer? You might have to explain how you know this...

Hm, how did this thread go from my trailer winch to Stix table dancing??? That's just wrong...
