I haven't been on here in a while but long story short..running step deck and have a question...i may have to go to Texas and pick up a load of utility trailors next week..iv been told when their loaded they stand at 14ft but once strapped you can get them down to 13.6..my question is if anyone has hauled them and how do you strap them to get em down that low..i think their shipped with tires and Styrofoam in between them..4 high on step and 5-6 on deck..any advice ? Thanks

I honestly don't know the answer, but I'm assuming the styrofoam compresses down as you tighten the straps. Anytime I'm picking up something unusual like that I find the guy loading me can almost always tell me how it's done. Ask them.

From what I have seen when you tighten straps you will pull down on the suspension of the trailer to where it will be tight against blocks or the next trailer below it. And depending on the size and style of trailer some tires may be removed while others are left on.
