Well Mooch,

Hey FM1 I've noticed you got a hitch hauler on your truck. What do you think of it? I'm thinking about getting one for my CRV. Anything I should watch out for or you recommend?

After being at MBK last weekend, I decided to stay up all night and find my way into one of the car trailers for the car shows and picked up a brand new ride! 

Check out how *I* roll!

Here is a pic of Jim's trailer from the AOTD tourney.  Note, car color matches the kayak ;)

and ratchet tie downs

I'm sure you know this, but be careful with the ratchet tie downs as it's possible to overdo it and damage your yak.

On the positive side, nice set-up.
