I rented a U-Haul
Auto Transport Trailer (Empty weight
: 2,210 lbs.) last week to take to Clovis, NM to pickup a VW Baja Bug I was buying. 600 mile round trip.
It has been a long time since I've towed anything as wide, sure needed to watch in traffic & on the road more to make sure the trailer didn't hit anything.
Gotten spoiled with the Scamp
being nice & narrow.
It was a marathon 601 mile drive to Clovis, NM & back. We rented the car carrier & left the U-Haul
place at 9 am; got to Clovis around 2 pm or so. Left Clovis at about 5:10 pm & got back home around 11:30 pm or so.
The Baja Bug is Far from finished, but hopefully, it want take too much more to get it finished. Has a lot of new parts as well as old parts. It may be a great buy, it might be a folly. Time will tell. It does have a molded fiberglass front (which tilts up), rear finders & the rear engine deck or cover.
My wife & I got it off the trailer & parked after getting it home. We also unloaded what was behind the front seats of the Ford F150 (our bags to do an overnight if we had to). In the house by 12:20 am. Not to shabby for a couple of Seniors. Ha!
I got the trailer back by 9 am the next morning as well.
Narrow is nice when towing, it reminded me.
