Exactly what do you order?

Exactly how do you get out of the "toad" once it's inside?

Exactly how do you tie it down?

Etc.

I'm trying to figure out if I'm physically capable of dealing with one of these setups, and if so, what they cost, where and how to buy, etc. Everything I've found online seems to assume you already know the answers to these questions.
We purchased an InTech stacker. They build to your specifications and work with you to determine your needs.

If access is a problem an escape door will work.

E track on the floor and the proper ratcheting straps will hold the vehicle in place.

Look on their website for dealers. Our dealer was exceptional.

There are many manufacturers who will likely be as helpful. We were concerned with weight so required all aluminum construction.

Cost will depend upon your specifications and the options you add.

Hey Grodon!

What type of hitch are you running? Meaning are you using torsion bars on your hitch?

We are running a 24' V nose enclosed, with my Goldwing front tire up in the "V", and our 2 door Jeep behind it. The coach appears to sit level with the load, but I have been thinking about trying the bars. I already have the set.

Have you weighed the loaded trailer for actual tongue weight? I pull a 26' enclosed trailer with modified Jeep along with equipment in the front. Tongue weight is 1500# (15,000# hitch). I use a load leveling hitch with builtin sway control. I think it makes a difference, but my son pulls a similar load without a LL hitch, but he has a 20,000# hitch too.

Hi Lloyd - no we are not using any bars.

The tongue scales at 800 lbs with the 20' trailer fully loaded and level. We have a tongue scale.

With the triple spread axle the trailer sits with 200 lbs on the tongue when empty and level. If we lower the front end the tongue will not touch the ground.
