Re: Best way to secure a car to a car trailer?
Like oldieseldude said, I use "basket" straps on all 4 wheels. Tighten them down like you want to crush the tires. It never moves, a fraction of an inch.
Tying down via the chassis, still leaves some give in the suspension. Going over bumps gets movement transmitted to the hauled vehicle's suspension and puts a lot of strain on your tie down points on the trailer and the vehicle.
