tie downs

Hello fellow campers,

Just purchased my first toy hauler, have had many other rigs all the way up to 43 FL but never a toy. I have an older jeep wrangler i am looking to haul gonna get it on scales but everything i have read on it says i should be good. My question is has anyone tried to use tie down to winch to pull toy into rig. Its a bit of a tight fit i fell this qould be a less stressfull way to load my rig. If not im thinking 4 low to creep it up i have a 2024 sandtorm 2710SRX. Any advice would be helpfull

I never loaded anything on a toy hauler but have loaded my Jeep on my flatbed trailer millions of times by driving up in low.
Why wouldn't just drive it up?

Tie downs are not winches and also you would need a secure mount that could handle the weight when pulling ,atleast that's what Im thinking.

Im sure some TH owners will chime in to educate us!

Its a bit tight about 4 inches side to side just thinking it would be a more controlled load if winched on

Your Tie Down anchors might not like the side pulling forces you're going to be applying. Their designed to be pulled kind of straight up & down, not from the side.Just my thoughts, & me being me, I would do it, then when an anchor rips out, "well that was stupid of me."

Yes, the weight! I can't fathom the idea of putting at least a ton of weight on the back end of a toy hauler.
