Loading a Toy Hauler

I just got a Toy Hauler, is it best to load it hookup to the truck. I was told it work best to have the front end up, to lower the pitch of the ramp. Can anyone help.

I also hookup first it avoids the risk of the tongue jack falling of the block due to trailer movement during loading.

Guess also depends on what you are loading, have heard those with cruiser bikes(Harley's) have had some issues. We haul quads and mc bikes with no issues.

We load a golf car with the TH hitched to the truck & it will sometimes scrape the rear (of the golf car) on the ground but no big issue...... I have always loaded trailers hitched to the truck less chance of them moving..........
