Re: What is best spot to tie down Crosley wagon for towing?

Jim Bollman

I agree in general, but I tie my FarmOroad down using I-Bolts I put into existing holes in the frame. The FOR has a very stiff suspension and I put enough tension on so the springs are partially compressed. I use ratchet straps on the back and chains and turnbuckles on the front, pus have a board that I pull against in the front and drop a second born into mounts in the back to keep it in place. I would not tie a regular Crosley to the frame for the reason's you give.

You never want ot tye down on frame as it is mounted on springs and will bounce and break your straps and move around
