Trailer Tie Downs

4 posts in this topic

I am looking for anyone that has a newman trailer or anyone that can answer this question.

I have a side load 7 X 8 trailer.

This trailer does not come with deck tie downs, but the side has about a 2" lip with a bend over lip the ramp attaches to.

Do I trust the lip to winch and tie down to?

Do I install deck tie-downs?

If I trust the lip, what keeps the tie downs from moving up and down the side?

Seems like alot of questions I know, but I am trailering these a couple of hundred miles this weekend and I really do not want to worry about it the whole way.

Thanks

Mark

I wouldn't trust them. Install some eyebolts or at least drill some holes in the lip that your tiedowns can hook into. Be sure to install the tiedowns in something made of metal

I had no issues with my newmans tieng down to the side rails. If your tie downs are straight up and down just ratchet them as tight as can be with 2 straps on both the front and rear.

You could drill some holes but that lip makes it a challenge to get a good angle for a tie in. That lip on your trailer is designed to be hooked to.

I have a 7x16 Newmans 4 place side load ATV and the side lip is no issue.

I have the same trailer. I use the side tie downs hauling 2 wheelers and a trailer on a Canada hunting trip every year. I did install a couple deck tie-downs to provide more options, especially for hauling other things. Like stated before, make sure the straps are straight and tight. You shouldn't have any problems.

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
