Right. Darn camera died right before you drive it on.  🤦‍♂️  I’d like to get more shots of the loader in action, etc.  if you bring it to Adrian we’ll have to play with it some.

Is your transmission ok, it appeared to free wheel down the ramps unless you pulled the lever "full" back as you were backing down.

The lever was a bit further back than I would have liked.

I am still getting used to the whole setup.

 

When I got home from the show, I made sure to go very slowly down the ramp.

No matter what it is that you’re loading or unloading on a trailer it seems like there is a bit of a “learning curve”. Each time gets a little more comfortable but ya always gotta be careful and just stop and think.

I’m still getting used to my 6x12 as well.   The first couple of times I had it loaded I was getting some bounce, had to figure out where the right spot was, then it rode real good.   The Gibsonburg show was my first long haul (over the 3-4 miles testing it out around the neighborhood).   When I crossed the state line into MI it got to bouncing real bad, so much that I stopped to adjust the load a bit.  Glad I did I almost lost one of the wheels from my CC trailer due to a quick pin that fell out.   I also discovered I’d like more tie down points so I’m working on that.

I don’t think I’d ever be comfortable driving up those ramps you’ve got on your deck over. ☺️

That’s why I got the hydraulic dovetail. No skinny ramps for me. 🙂
