I guess sliding backwards with a truck, trailer and snowcat is just a right of passage for a snowcat owner. I have slid backwards on a steep hill, done a 180 and pushed my truck and trailer down the road while loading the cat. Now I turn around if I'm uncomfortable and it's already worked out in my favor. I recommend Bridgestone Blizzack, they come in 10ply.

Hey Aaron, have you seen the Timberline lodge 443? It's roof rack is really nice and in my opinion what you should replicate.

looking into the future and I see a 2 ton tucker freighter trailer as the best way to go, no climbing up ice covered ladders, sliding off the road, or spilling the tin cup

seriously, A.T. I would build pull behind 2 or 4 ski trailer, can be patterned from a original tucker sno cat cat or build to your own or NM outdoors design, either way, far far far more useful......

I’ll take a 1/2 ton Tucker trailer while your at it.

Do you think the fact that there is not a GM vehicle towing plays a role here ?

I know that lots of stuff on my roof rack falls of and I don’t go far. Bet my trailer would keep
it safe.

Then I guess I'm in that club too. Driving uphill F-350 in 4WD. All forward motion ceases, and I'm only feet from the top. No sweat, I'll put it in park, set the brake and I'll winch it. Oh no. It starts sliding backwards. I have to keep my foot firmly planted on the brakes. I can't get out of the truck. Luckily I had a guy behind me who came up and setup the winch pull. We ended up taking the cat off the trailer so the 9,000 lb winch didn't burn itself to death.



The rest of the day sucked too but at least nothing was wrecked.

I appreciate the input and thought of what you have told me before but Tincup is set on the roof rack. they want to be able to stand on it at events and be above the crowed. Also new sponsor Tepui wants there tent on the tucker.
