    Load the tractor to give yourself as much turning room as possible. In your photo I would back the second Tacoma on if it has to be loaded there. Ideally you should load that where the length can just be overhang and not interference. When I ran that 7512 I always tried to put the cars on the tractor all the way forward and the cars on the trailer as far back as possible.
    On the trailer forget about hauling 7 unless they are tiny or you can run pretty high. To haul 6 on it, back the first top on the solo deck, leave the middle car as far back as you can drive it on, drive the back top on. Then load the bottom front as far forward as possible, back 2nd bottom as far forward as possible (this will help get the height down). Drive or back the back bottom and drop it down as far as possible.
    I sure don't miss loading that trailer.

    I don’t remember the model number of the one I drove, but I think other than a daycab this is similar to load the trailer. Backing a pickup on the top front of the trailer was safer on mine. 012E3587-AE8A-4BA6-BE8C-CE768A8A8109.png 87C7F026-D9F8-42C5-8B21-8BECB50014B4.png

    They company who got that as a new unit. Modified the hell out of there trailers. I think it may bend the deck to lower the height on taller units. But I’ve never seen anyone use them so I could be wrong. Slide that back bottom car out and drop it down you’re allowed 6 feet of overhang sometimes you need all 6 to get your height down
