    Stand-up Hauler

    Has anyone ever used one of these or know anything about them? Maybe one for sale?

    Also, the second picture shows a jeep towing a trailer with this hauler installed? Any thoughts on how safe that may be?

    I was doing a little measuring today and it looks like the cheap-o hitch haulers they sell at Walmart will work with the installation of some bunks. I just acquired a stand up and dont have the money for a double trailer, but if memory serves me correctly, I dont think the cheap hitch haulers will allow you to tow anything behind it. Maybe its time for a front mounted hitch on the truck! Oh the possibilities

    The front hitch is how I plan on towing my Hurricane.
    I want a hidden receiver for my winch and have a guy build me a stand that I can plug in.
    I just need to verify I'll have plenty of air flow for my baby.

    Ok I have zero experience with stand ups. Now that's out of the way, how do you launch something carried like that? Two guys pick it up and throw it in the water? I suppose they are significantly lighter than the sit downs.

    my 550 is about 150 #'s. Easy Lift for my wife and I (I take the front). I just back it down really close to the water. Lift and drop. Heck we used to just throw it in a pick up truck.

    Just make sure it is not blocking your license plate. $58 fine in NC from experience.
