Not this time. But there was one trip that we transported 11 people in a conversion van. Had to go from FL to NY for my Grandmother's funeral and Thom was nice enough to offer to drive everyone.

For the vehicle you have I would use axle straps, easy to get to the axles. On my wife's car I can't even get to the suspension so I have chosen to use wheel straps. I tried to use the wheel baskets but that didn't work at all. I can't even get my hand behind the wheel. Good luck with whatever you choose.

The method of tying a vehicle down to a trailer as all can see, varies. If one really wanted to know and cared about, the "legal" way, I'd either contact the local State Patrol for your state or, be governed by the DMV book that might have readings on the actual system to be used.

If you don't care about legalities, then pick what you'd like. I prefer the four point frame system myself. I don't tow every day of my life but, when I have, it's never, ever come loose and or even moved in the slightest amount. Your choice.
