LOL now what would make you say such a thing???FTM I know your gonna say something about his tie down system
scurvey that's a nice package, the only fault I see is if you have to load it with mud on it
On second look, I see that the winch is not being used for a tie down. My bad.I know better than that it's secured both ends at the frame. Rides with the brake set, in neutral, and hasn't moved an inch in over 2000 miles of hauling - even through Salt Lake City on I-15
No problem, that grab strap on the hook is about the same color as the strap. I did try a bunch of different strap combinations, and can say Jayco has never actually hauled anything when they placed the cleats. Since we use the back end for other stuff when not hauling, I don't want to go with e-tracks, and settled on two angled straps in the back (front of the buggy) and tested on some steep washboard roads.On second look, I see that the winch is not being used for a tie down.

We left our garage happy jack beds in for massive amount of storage...can you store sweatshirts, riding gear etc on yours and get by with less air pressure and those washer shims you put in?...would be cool if you can leave the bed?after the maiden voyage I discovered rub marks on the roof and the happy jack bed from the bouncing and swaying of the camper, so yup with stock tires it will rub at the high point of the roof. You'll notice the bed can be raised some at the four corner mounts - I used a thick washer under each corner and have gained some clearance. Next time we haul any distance like the next time I go to Moab, I think I'll let some air out of the tires as well. It's just the two of us, I'd as soon as take the bed out and store it since we don't use it but have not done that yet (the bed disconnects really easy for removal). This weekend I'll get some pictures of the fitment and the cabinet mod. I love the 222 btw.
I'm afraid to store too much on ours in case I have to hit the brakes - don't want it sliding off. I don't think you'll lose any storage if you have to leave the bed behind when you haul the wolverine; I slide totes under it, there is room on the sides, and of course totes in the bed and seats if necessary. of course the totes go into the truck when we're camping.We left our garage happy jack beds in for massive amount of storage...can you store sweatshirts, riding gear etc on yours and get by with less air pressure and those washer shims you put in?...would be cool if you can leave the bed?
But don't forget "he who dies with the most toys wins"Thats good investigative reporting. I'm looking for a toy hauler also. My problem is that i hav the wolverine and a RZR170 (youth model) to pack around. They take up every inch of space on a 16 foot tandem axle trailer. I'd have to get a 16 foot garage, which could easily mean a 40 foot trailer to have a decent amount of room for the four of us. That's fifth wheeler territory and so then i need a 3/4 ton truck instead of my PAID FOR F150. This hobby gets pricey
