Aussie - what do you tow behind your F-series?

Post pics, could be for work, home, or play, what do you hook-up to your F-series?

My first rather puny offering is this load of 50 year old carpet going to the tip - there is no way I'm putting dirty stuff in the back of my ute again!

Simon,

Looks like your Picasa account isn't public mate - we can't see you hauling your crap!
Because I am in the states at the moment, mine only gets used to haul the groceries



It does get the opportunity to haul my bikes every now and then though.
Here it is in Punta San Francisquito in Baja:

I went hunting through there to try and find the pic, as you said it looks like it's either hidden or gone.

At the moment my tray doesn't have sides on it because that's how I bought it. So nothing can really go into it yet, but I have 2 spare wheels tied down with a 2.5t ratchet strap - just because I like overkill

Hi IB Adrian, 2 motorbikes in the back with the tailgate up. That's pretty good!
I've made my picassa album public and re-inserted the link in the post above.

After I posted that mine does nothing, the missus decided she wanted to take some junk to our mate's place for roadside collection. Good excuse for a drive, if nothing else

Nice one Xran, you've got one smart missus there, and that's what I call 'well secured' and 'lightly laden'.

I used the same excuse to take mine out today. 4 garbage bags full of clothes and shoes destined for the Salvos, delivered by the F250, needs a run at least once per week!

Here's a pic of a big load - one of the guys at the F-series Get ToGether in Canberra in March - tray back camper:

haha yeah we use 10t chains and ratchet binders for everything at work, even a little 3m skip bin. by comparison the 2.5t ratchet straps were a half-measure lol!

Oh, here's the kicker though - we left with a tray full of **** as well. Forgot that we'd left a fold-up table and 12 chairs there... D'OH!!!!! Oh well the patio looked good for a little while!

Mine tows everything from cars, trailers and motor bikes.
I use ours for our small Specialised Trailer Transport business.
I cover most of the country, mainly the southern and eastern states.
If you see me in your travels, give me a honk!!

Thanks. I am dreaming now.
