Once I saw an extension ladder on a mini van held only by a single rope in the middle spin sideways. Glad I didn't try to pass. Another time on the interstate I saw 3 dinning room chairs spaced a half mile apart then saw the truck pulled off to the side and the driver looking at it like "where did they go?".
I too laugh at these engineering marvels until I remember the poor woman killed here a few years ago when a ladder came off a truck and went through her windshield sending her over the side of a bridge.
Rope is cheap and there's no such thing as using too much.

I agree James . If for any reason I need to haul something I always have 3 or 4 ratchet straps. I do love to see crazy stuff though . I once seen a big screen ,the big box type on the side of the road where it fell off the roof of a station wagon.

Not my haul, but we saw this on the highway last year sometime. Why buy a trailer for you little pony, when a pickup bed will do! Pretty funny to see.

Well I think II qualified for this thread this morning.I went to mow the lawn and I was out of gas,my parents had both cars since they were at work so I duct taped a 2 gallon gas jug to the front of my trail 70 motorcycle to run to the station and get some gas.You should have seen the looks I got from some of the people at the gas station.

This the real reason why step side trucks had wooden beds for so long. Hauling livestock requires a wooden floor so that they can stand up . The wood gives them traction while they slip on the steel.

Andy around me there's a river where they have them (not sure if there kayak or canoe they hold a few people and are really slender .) races . I've seen them hauled on the roofs of Honda civics to Beatles not sure how that one work. Lol also in the mountains near me we have a lot of wind so gliders are popular in the sumer time,I get to see all kinds of small cars pull them.

Ok guys what is the craziest thing you hauled with your vehicle car wagon suv or pick up truck. time to show the crazier side of you.
This was my dad back in the early 90s when his work van died he hauled a 40 ft ladder on the roof of his 86 turismo. Posted Image

Family legend has it that one of my uncles once hauled a pony from Atlanta, GA to Louisville, KY in the rear seat of a convertible in the '50s or '60s. No pictures or confirmation, but it's a good story.
