I have a 7x12 foot utility trailer on which I plan to transport my '26 Roadster. Where on the car are the best locations to secure the tie straps - both front and back, side to side?
Here is older post with pictures. This is my way also. Scroll down mid way in the post.
Some say to strap via the springs, but axle strapping for me is better, via the springs the body lifts on bumps and the spring action causes the straps to become loose. Cross strapping is better for side sway if you have to change lanes fast, but shouldn't have to if you trailer at proper speed.
I like to use the tire straps over all 4 wheels in addition to the front and rear axel straps ...maybe a little overkill , but the vehicle is secure ...if correctly positioned you can haul safely for many miles ...also CHECK your load often !
Merry Christmas all
I tie on the axle right next to the spring perch both front and rear. I attach to the corners of the trailers. So far, I have not had a problem. In the past I strapped to the springs or the chassis and found that the whole trailer bounces a lot more that way than it does when a allow the body of the T to bounce on its own springs.
