No, that is something you should do on anything that may exceed the length of your vehicle. It's most likely found in your state's vehicle regulations.

I recently hauled a 25 cubic foot upright freezer in the back of my 1996 outback. I am sure it looked quite rediculious on the freeway!!

I hauled a Nuclear Density Gauge, used to test the density of soil on construction sites. I was the only guy on the sites with a "car". Looked interesting driving around with safety lights on the roof and a large bright yellow box marked 'radioactive material' chained to the rear seat supports.

I usually just have a ton of computers for work or a mountain bike in the back, if anything.

Yesterday, I hauled a 1970s Ariens snowblower, though. Fit perfectly.

75 2X4's

There are so many stories about what I have hauled in my 12 Subaru's, here is one or two. In my first 79 DL station wagon, I took out the front passenger seat an put in 75 2x4's. I had a distinct list to the right... but I drove slowly for ~10 miles.

On another occasion in the same car, four people, a large Irish setter and enough camping equipment for a week, we drove for 12 hours to Okracoke island. There was a back pack or two strapped to a bike rack on the back.

On the highway I would get the mid to high 30 mpg's. I sure miss that now with my 2000 OBW. Yes, it is safer, quieter, more stable at high speeds, etc., but I sure wish Subaru would make a more fuel efficient car.

In the 2000 OBW, I have fashioned an easily removable cardboard liner for the back and regularly fill it to the brim with firewood in the winter.

My wife and I haul her harpsichord to gigs. 'Fridges, washing and drying machines. People are constantly amazed what I have fit in my Subaru's over the years. The Justy couldn't fit that much, but I would put a roof rack on and stack it up...

So I've had a lotta gear in my car for work, and it's been a camera car for more than one occasion.

Heres some pictures of its use lately.

No weird loads yet, but advice is needed I suppose.

I've got a friend who has a wrecked kawasaki ninja 250 that I was thinking of buying to part out.

As long as I put down some plywood and painters plastic, you guys think a 400lb motorcycle would fit on it's side in the back?

I'd normally look for somebody with a pickup but they live about 200mi away and I'll be driving past their place the next time I visit family that's up near them.
