    I had Rhino sprayed in the Dodge Ram I had and it is great stuff. Things do not slide around in the bed with it compared to some of the other products out there. Nice Truck

    I'd be real grumpy with out the Rhino lining in the back of the Ford.

    It was worth it to get it done.

    Yah, it's a diesel! I fit 1/3-1/2 cord each time. The beetle pulls it no problem.

    Had to replace my full size GMC with something a little more family friendly. The pathfinder with my 5x10 trailer will haul a cord pretty easy and fits the bill just right. I do have a hard time remembering its not a truck though and the cargo area shows some wear and tear because of it. Oh well its just a car right?

    '05 Ranger pickup. The 7 foot bed and HD payload package lets me haul 1/2 cord per trip. The 4 cylinder engine, header, and 5-speed tranny gives me 30 mpg while doing it. Best truck I ever owned.

    I hauled this load for 4 hours down the expressway and a few back roads. Then I went back and got the same load again and came all the way back. Ignore the date in the picture, camera wasn't set. All that wood is stacked tight in the truck and trailer.

    It kind of cool for me to see all the trailers since this will be my first year using a trailer instead of a truck. It just seems that one has to have a truck to do this but it is very doable with out a truck if one does not have to go way back in the woods for access.

    My wood hauler is a UHAUL trailer. I rent one whenever I find wood on Craigslist. Can't beat the price (of the wood either - usually free).

    ^ Do you use the enclosed dual axle? How much wood can those hold? They say they are only rated for 2500 lbs or so. Thats only 1/2 a cord.

    You are correct....... you are not supposed to load a trailer in excess of the approved weight limit. And, as far as you know, I don't. :)

    I use my grandfathers tractor to get it out of the mountains, and my trusty Jeep Cherokee in the background with a 5x10 trailer to get it home...

    I drove a '97 Tacoma for 9 years - It was the best vehicle I've ever had, I used to load that thing up with so much wood the front tires would almost be off
    the ground...

    This spring Toyota wrote me a check to buy back the vehicle due to a frame rot warranty issue (talk about standing behind your product)...

    And I just couldn't resist this GT - It hauls about 1/20th of a cord of wood :coolgrin:

    I know it probably wasn't the best decision but it sure is a nice ride.

    05 F150 4x4 STX, although some gripe about the towing capacity (6200lbs, roughly a cord when including the trailer), i really have been happy with the truck and since I rarely tow, it's not a major issue. Big fan of the rubber floors and enough space to pick up the kids from daycare. Only had 19k on it when I bought it for a steal this summer. I work from home, so no worries on gas for me.

    Here with trailer rented for 30bucks:

    My new hauler. It is a one ton diesel crew cab 4x4. I regularly tow a 7000 lb trailer and daily commute 8 miles to work so mpg isn't really as important as capability.

    The prices for these big trucks has gone way way down. This 2000 model was cheap. Barely 5 figures and gets the same mpg as my previous gas half ton truck.

    My trailer is an 18' car hauler rated for 10,000 lbs.

    I traded in my F250 deisel for this Chevy Colorado and had a buddy of mine build this 5x8 trailer. I can haul a full cord between the truck and trailer unless it's fresh cut Oak which is a little too heavy.
