    Ran across this today.
    I like parts of it, some of it not so much.



    This guy talks too much, and he's not willing to say somthing is a bad idea.
    Maybe it's because he's Canadian and he's being polite.
    (Appoligies to our neighbors to the north, we are too opinionated to be polite)

    In the end, the method he uses is similar to what I like.
    Attached to the frame.
    Keep the straps more horizontal, the vehicle will still move around but it's not going anywhere.

    I like the vidio of the trailer as they are driving, it helps you see what is going on.
    My only add is this: place the hooks so if the strap dose go slack, the hook will not fall off.

    The TFL offroad channel seams to be new.
    Hoping they add good SxS stuff.

    This method is similar to what I have always used without issue.
    But I'm going to try the behind and around the wheel method next trip.

    I have always been a fan of no dynamic load, BUT I am really liking the over the wheel tie-downs.

    Not disagreeing.

    Saying there’s more than one way to skin a cat. I swore by the same method but I’m liking the over the tire method. The pioneer suspension takes some of the impact from a pothole instead of the trailer tires taking all of it.

    Also takes less than 5mins to tie down.

    I did e track with over the tire straps. All the way to Colorado and back it never moved and that's with just 2 tires strapped. @nbomar did it that way in his camper

    Really good point. Seen too many tracks screwed to a wood floor with just a few screws.

    I generally use my winch, some times some ducktape or dental floss. I have squirted some superglue under each tire before and it works keeping them from sliding around.

    In all seriousness I would like to get some over the tire strap down, if I ever buy a trailer. Hard to install hardware on borrowed stuff. Seeing as I can haul the rig on the back of my truck. Maybe some day Ill just buy a trailer.
