Loading a 1500

Post by hap2 » Thu Jun 29, 2017 5:16 pm



I have to load up the 1500 on a trailer tomorrow. The trailer has a built in wheel choke, tailgate ramp & tie down hooks. I'm just not sure where to put the soft ties ir how tight to cinch down the front.

An instructional video would be excellent.

Thank u

Take your time and look over the how to a couple times first. You can load the Wing and tie her down yourself if you take your time and are careful. I've had to do it a couple times now, and both times, the Wing couldn't go under power, now THAT's fun, lol :lol: :lol:

Well,i did it, but by myslf which is no fun. The the ratchet straps I had were too long, so had to shorten them. Lotsa fun. At least it was flat to load ( no ramp or hill needed) & it had power so that helped.
