    Ass to ass or face to face?

    One way is acceptable, one is frowned upon

    Both are okay if you are in califonia

    Thought about doing the V thing (side to side) but too much potential damage to karts and truck. I just got a little trailer from Harbor freight.

    I haul 2 250 superkarts in back of truck all the itme.  I streetch them side by side across the top of the bed using tie downs.  They run fine the whole 600 miles each way to Roebling Road no problem.  If done right, you can even put a laydown under them in the bed itself.

    BTW:  Only damage I’ve had in 10 years of oding this is minor scratches to the bed liner.

    I’ll look.  If I go to Sumnmit Point next weekend I’ll take a  pic afyter I load them up. as well.  I’m even abel to load myself by using a harbor frieght lift dolly in the bed.  I transferby sliding form kart stand to top of  dolly in bed.  Then I swivel dolly around so kart is sideways to truck and push to front half of truck.  And a RZ350 superkart is as heavy as it gets.  It aint a trailer race :)

    8ft bed crew cab F350 BTW.

    Thank you George,

    I found something very interesting  it call truck bed extender, I will give it a try see if it will work on karts.

    Many years ago I would put two chassis side by side with the noses sticking out the right side of the bed  over the fender and the bumpers down in the bed. Slide fold up kart stand, tool box underneath. Pile fuel jug, tires, and air tank around karts.

    Did this to test at local tracks after school or work.

    Phil, that is a pretty interesting alternative. I am thinking seeing a second kart bouncing around would definitely pucker me up.
