Get a pic of it actually rolling... Now that would be a pic.

Amazing that it didn't squat to the ground with the TW.
The TW on that trailer has to be close to 1000....
I was not going to take a chance of hurting my boat or scratching my trailer.The bottom of the trailer by the tongue was about 10 inches from the ground. The Element is disposable the Hustler is not.

IceAngel its my dads vehicle also, he bought to pull behind his motorhome. We call it the MR BEAN Car ,looks like something Mr Bean would drive.

NO WAY is the tongue weight set up properly on that trailer.

TW should be about 10% of total weight.
I lowered my boat onto a 1/2 ton FORD and it put the bumper on the ground.
