No W/D or S/C on TT!

While being passed at XXMPH by a TT Transporter, I came to the Fact that they NEVER have any (Dual Cam/Equalizer 4Point or any other type of W/D or S/C) on the Brand NEW units! The one who passed us was Swaying like He-- but he was Movin On! Likewise I have Never seen a 1/2 Ton Transporter either! Youroo!!

I dont see it either. They would have to mount it/install it and then un-install it at the destination, in addition the units are empty (not saying this is a right train of thought, just how it is in my opinion). I think the 1/2 ton is another story..... meaning transporters at least know a 3/4 ton to 1 ton will pull anything and they go with the diesel due to the longevity of it, since this is their business for a living. 1/2 tons dont come with diesel (Im not talking about the eco's) so why have a transport vehicle that isnt up to the job in terms of power longevity and payload spec?

The transporter that came to pick up our 5er a couple weeks ago was driving a 3500 Diesel Dually with a 8' bed and MAN was that truck ever beat up!

One of the transporters near me that tows for the FR plant in Dallas Or uses WD. I saw him towing a new TT a couple days ago. And he had a DRW Ram. I'm guessing he was hauling the TT to Highway trailer sales in Salem Or. Only a 15-20 mile trip with 1/2 of it thru town. Guess he felt safer.

Never said he was pulling a Pod did I? I said TT. And no it wasn't a pod. Looked like a WC Maxx 24G.


Guessing that's why it was a Ram. Too much TT for a Ford or GMC.
