Need to trailer my car for about 25 miles in potentially wet weather. Its a touring, and i was thinking about putting the top up and installing the side curtains, and staying under 45mph. Anyone have any experiences doing this? The car travels on its own at those sppeds with no problems. thoughts?
Hi, Vince, I routinely trailer a 21 touring car set front first on an open trailer at speeds up to 60 mph. This car has a pretty poor top which needs to be replaced but have had no problems so far. I've no ecperience with side curtains. Bob
Amen to Mr. Hester, my only other comment would be to be sure and remove the floor boards, seat (s) and keys.
Vince, can I deduce from this that you're trailering to the Easter Show?
When I trailer long distances, I put the top down. For a short distance, it's easier to leave the top up and keep the speed down. I have also heard about removing floorboards, seats, etc. I've never done it. In the beginning the floorboards would vibrate out of place. Now I put a couple of bricks on all floorboards and they're usually in the same place when I arrive. I once even had a wadded-up paper towel on the rear floor that I forgot to remove and throw away. A hundred miles later, it was still there.
