No More Loading on the Roof!!!!

I picked up the PA14 yesterday and was already dreading the idea of loading it up on the roof of the Jeep. So today I went out and purchased a small trailer. I will be putting racks on it in the coming days.

    Me and a buddy are going this route shortly as well.. Tired of lugging that thing up/down from the racks. :beer

    I know the 12 will fit in the back with a hitch extender. Saw one last week with a Versa Board as well in a cherokee. Bow to the front, slide out a little, put the plug in wheels underneath slide it out completely and your on your way. After watching Summer Daze load his PA in his short bed truck, I was convinced the extra weight of the PA is negligible with the right loading system. You are 20" longer though!

    Very workable trailer. Have fun customizing it.
    The latest survey shows that
    three out of four people make
    up 75% of the population

    Too much roof rack lifting is pretty hard on the shoulders. Good call on the trailer.
