Can Am says use the Softstraps and tie down the A Arms. Nahhh, didn't like that. Some discussion of a better, simpler way. Owners don't see the drilled gussets under the rear fenders and some talk don't use those. 2400 miles like this no issues: We took the I 20 from St Anthony Idaho to Jackson Hole Wy. About as brutal a road as you will ever encounter towing a heavy trailer. Held up good and I'll never take that route again. 80" wide with the paddles. Have to put the stock wheels and tires back on to load it.
