What, just one, Rick?? You should grab up two and keep one for future use.

 

I've been playing with a bed design for slant loading a Fiat 500. It is dooable, and actually can fit in the same amount of space (approximately) as a smart takes up. But you lose the drom. No issue with getting it on the back of the truck, either. It has a little more road clearance than a smart, so it looks like with the 12' ramps you can rear load it. My new bed design has a slightly higher bed level than my last one, so clearing the hitch is not an issue. Or, at least on paper it is not. I need to CAD it, but I'm not a CAD guy.

Looking forward to seeing the new bed design at the ECR. I may just wrap up the 2017 until the wheels fall off the current one..... ;):) The new car has a lot more creature comforts than the old one.
