That should work fine as long as it's not moving.
Don't think such things do not happen.
several years ago a collector here in Australia sent two employee's to fetch a 1910-12 brass car.
They loaded it onto a trailer and strapped it down with rope over the hood.
After a 500 mile trip the car was in badly damaged compared to its pre trip condition of near perfect.
Are they still employees?
I think they're just trying to keep the top from flipping up.
Come on guys.
Well, to keep the top from flipping up they shouldn't tie the strap all the way down to the trailer.. If the trailer was towed on the road, even if the wheels or axles were properly tied to the trailer, the spring action of the Model T would put a lot of (varying) strain on the top resulting in wear marks and possibly bent top irons.
I think it's a joke posted by the single axel trailer bunch which is also a joke!! Bud.
Guys, I don't think that's a trailer.. I think it's a roll-off body flatbed truck.
I was having lunch a while back and saw a flat bed trailer go by with a cow on it. The cow was laying down and was CHAINED down. Its head was up looking around. Made me do a double take. I told some one about later and a guy poked his head up and said it was him. The cow was doing poorly and he was taking her to the sale yard before she crooked. He couldnt get her into a stock trailer and that was the best he could do. I think he was driving a chevy, Scott
It is strapped just in-case gravity fails. Great example of redundant systems in case of failure.
Scott, this guy drove from Kansas to Oklahoma with his bull.
That's a lotta bull!
