Good thing he didn't load it the other direction or he'd have a hard time getting up to speed!

It would have been easier to pull if he did not put the 2 sides together. The maverick blinds come in 2 halves

I bet he gets better gas mileage that those commenting!

It's not like he needs a diesel to pull a 100lb piece of plastic.

It is, I have one. They are so easy to break apart and so much less wind drag. That is the best thing about those blinds. You could stack 10 of them in a bed of a truck if you had to.

I remember as a kid in SE Oklahoma, we'd pull our big heavy ski boat loaded up to Lake Texoma with a Caprice Classic without a second thought. I had my wife ready to sh!+ a brick when I told her I was getting a hitch installed on her '02 Vette.

I really like seeing all the lifted 4x4 concrete queens around Houston whose tires have never even touched grass, much less East Texas mud or West Texas rocky hills. My 2WD '01 P/S has gotten me everywhere I've needed to go that a truck should. If it won't, I've got an ATV.

I got some double takes a few years back when I brought a caped out 10-point home in the front seat of my Jetta. All you could see through the passenger window was antlers. Thankfully I have a truck now.
