    Anyone use a UHaul trailer with an Atom?

    I don't see any reason that this would not work, but wanted to see if anyone had any experience trailering with one before I pull the trigger and rent one. My main concern is that they are too wide for the atom's track but I don't think that will be an issue.

    My open trailer has two pinch points for the Atom.

    1. I have to raise the front of the trailer by blocking the rear tires of the tow vehicle in the air because my ramps are too short.

    2. Mine has a break in slope about four feet in. It always is a bitch to get by.

    My 0.02. Just make sure the ramps are long ...

    understood. I have wood ready to extend the ramps. I can also lift my truck pretty high as it's an air suspension to get the angle lower.

    Where are the danger points? The nose cone? The tub? I was thinking I might trailer it without the nose cone...

    I always look at the nose cone, but, it is never close. It is tub high centering man!

    I could see those ramps getting very close to the tub with the tow car negotiating a steep ramp

    I used uhaul to take my car to atom fest, I set the uhaul ramps on my normal height curb at my house and drove on the ramps from the yard, worked perfect.

    Loading up after atom fest was a different story b/c there were no curbs, I used RyanD's ramps, made from wood, worked perfect.
