Heepjeep Posted January 18 Share Posted January 18 I've purchased a 1945 M-29C from the family of a former coworker. It's a 600 mile 10.5 hour 2 day trip tentatively scheduled for President's Day weekend, assuming the weather through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas is permitting. It is located just south of the Oklahoma panhandle in very north Texas. Lots of 2 lane roads for a couple hours to get there and back. I am taking my F-350 and a 2 axle 16 foot trailer rated at 5k lbs. The photos are below although I can't explain why they present how they are upside down etc. They aren't like that in the computer file. The M-29C is a runner. I've got a few weeks to get ready for my trip. Here is my list of things to do and questions. 1. Remove all accessories and loose items like the fire extinguisher rope etc. 2. Take off the top and bows. 3. Secure the windshield. Question: Is there a tie down for the windshield for the brush guard on the front? 4. Question: How do I secure it to the trailer? I am thinking to use the pintle in the back as a tie down point. Also I can likely use straps on the idler wheel trumpets crossed to the front of the trailer. In the middle I am thinking of running one under the weasel on a middle spring to the side of the trailer...criss-crossed to the opposite side. 5. Question: Better to haul facing forwards or backwards? 6. Question: How do you do it? Can people post pictures of how they do it? How do you do it?
