#5 A Guide to Towing and Transportation Safety
Full Story – Critical Cargo
Even though most of us want to drive our hot rods nearly everywhere we go, there are a lot of reasons to pull it up on a trailer and haul it to the next Goodguys event. Maybe it’s not yet finished, has too rowdy of an engine, is an all-out race car, or is a fresh 100-point restoration that just doesn’t need to see road rash yet. Whether towing home that next project vehicle or loading a fresh creation up to go to an event, sometimes a trailer just makes sense and there’s nothing wrong with that.
However, unless you do it all the time, towing a car is not as simple as it sounds and there are a lot of things to consider when towing from Point A to Point B safely. Is your tow rig up to the task with enough power and tow ratings to safely pull the weight? How about the trailer tires, brake system, weight distribution, and lighting? It is extremely important to get your trailer and load set up properly for a successful, stress-free haul before you merge onto the highway.
