Nothing like the sweet smell of lumber in your car.

Well, this isn't exactly "IN" my 'baru, but it was such an impressive load to haul, I thought I'd post a pic. This is my fiance's two horse trailer. It has a dressing room in the front & is made out of steel = around 3500lb. The ol' XT hauled it like a champ, really I was quite pleased although on the bumpy road, it jerked the car around a bit. I was just hauling it down the street to the trading post to sell it.

Got a 6' bookcase loaded, and the hatch closed fully, altho I was a little closer to the steering wheel than I would like.

Nice!

I had my seats lowered and the entire backend filled almost to the ceiling with computer equipment and luggage for 2 on a trip to Philly last year. My OBS' rearend was definitely sagging.... But it handled it well.

Yea, it stopped fine. Distances were obviously increased, but it handled very well around town. The trailer actually has electric brakes, but my car doesn't have the box to control them.

As far as the rear end, it was definitely down, but nowhere near rubbing. If I absolutely had to, I probably could haul one horse a short distance, but I'm not about to try it. It would be unsafe & irresponsible for everyone/thing involved. Two would be doubly so, but I'm sure it's possible.

PICS :





Talk about stopping/accelerating, the stove is either going through me or the back window if one is done too quickly. It's out now so all is good.
