    Vacation Pack Dry Run

    Eight poles, cart, cooler, 5 gal bucket, bait bucket, net, chairs. Good news "Honey"... there's going to be room for the luggage on our next trip to Gulf Shores!

    just have her fly down and meet you, provided she is willing to pack up your back up gear.

    You can always stow a ton of stuff on a receiver hitch rack. Then you can remove it when you get unloaded at the condo and not remove a knee cap or two running in to it.

    Never hit mine, but did snag the added on piece for the larger pier cart tire and ripped my favorite shorts....I like the cart&cooler on the carrier, makes more room inside for all the other crap/gear

    Mine never looked that packed, even have room to lay down if needed....memory foam 9ft rod tube inside when coming solo, otherwise it rides on the roof rack.....25 years of tweaking

    Got it! Yes I have added a solo trip 9/17 thru 9/24. Great idea on the memory foam!

    That comes when the bride comes too...but the rod tube is on the roof rack...lay down the wider back seat and just enough room to get horizontal for resting/sleeping....but the pier cart,cooler and various buckets are on the cargo carrier (all stainless made by me & hinges up if needed)
    Past 2 trips I made it just before Louisville at the rest stop,then the first 1 past to make use of the memory doubled over mattress topper

    I noticed a trailer hirch, might want to invest in a Reese hitch carrier (I made mine out of stainless) to put your cart cooler and buckets on during your trip, comes in handy for me anyway, things that don't matter if they get wet.....mine stays on the whole trip, just cable lock to hitch safety chain rings , both cart and cooler
