Yes, I have. Although I haven't taken my trailer on it, I've seen 18 wheelers on it. The trucks in the second pic were waiting in line to board one of the 3-4 ferries operating simultaneously.

Never that one, but we take the ferry from Aransas Pass to Port Aransas every year. Absolutely no problems.

We've gone the other direction...Galveston Island to Boliver...with our Windjammer, with absolutely no problem.

Safe travels!

I've taken it years ago with a Wrangler pulling my Coleman popup. It was a really great ride as I was the first vehicle on and got to enjoy the view while sitting in my Wrangler. One warning, there were a lot of seagulls around the ferry so overhead cover is definitely advised!

Last summer, I watched a monster 3-axle class A bus come off the Port Aransas ferry and he was towing a crew cab GMC Sierra with a large ATV in its bed. The ferry appeared to be no challenge but turning the street corner off the ferry landing was sort of a puzzle.
