    The proper way to tow would be to use straps. You should attach them around
    the front and rear axle area's. Be sure on the back you do not rope it
    around your actual axle or your brake line. It can be looped around the
    accillating arm where you can feel free to wrench it down as tight as you
    like. Do not use the rear bumpers, rear prop shafts, front bumper or even
    the tow hook as it is not necessary. Toooooooo valuable! I do like tire
    straps for the front but I don't use them , there easy and work ok but in no
    way are they as secure as the method above. With all four wheels strapped
    there is no need for a safety chain but it never hurts. Be sure to hook it
    loose.

  2. We are planning on attending a swim in this weekend and want to secure
    our little beauty on our trailer. We have heard there are some do's
    and don'ts when doing this. We did hear something at the tech mtg. in
    Celina but can't remember all that was said on the issue.

    Will someone please help us out with doing this right.

    I'd like to know asap so I can purchase what I need or modify our
    trailer.

    Thanks,

    I will trailer mine , i secure the front wheels with tire hold downs but
    chains around the front axeles should work fine , i strap the rear bumpers
    to the rear of the trailer and put an emergency chain on the front hook .I
    do not put a strap on the body anymore as this tends to rub a mark on the
    paint
