    The temperature here is beautiful today. Just last Thursday I was rolling these tarps in -34°C/-29°F in Kapuskasing, ON.

    That's one of those loads that if you pull it as a company driver, you swear to never pull as an owner operator.

    'Ugly' is an understatement. The load is going to shift. It's like thing to strap down a load of springs. They can band it, shrink wrap it, add dunnage, strap it down with 40 straps...and it's still probably will shift. I don't carry pipe stakes, but if someone was stupid enough to put stupid money on it, I would buy pipe stakes for that stuff.

    How often are your straps loosening? Doesn't look like that bad of a load, but I've never hauled one either.

    Kinda odd to have such an overbuilt truck, and then use the cheap pigtail and PVC airlines on it.

    I feel like a rookie when I jump in my ten wheeler, back all over the place trying to chase the trailer that isn't there -_-

    Kinda like when I swing a corner wide in my wifes Suburban and she wants to know if I cleared with the trailer. She also makes fun of me if we pull up to a switch back kind of intersection and I angle the car to be able to see like I do in the truck, the woman loves to mess with me.
