Hauling a 993

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any experience (good or bad) hauling a 993 on a trailer. What I am looking for is info about how to tie it down without damage to the vehicle including alingnment. Photos would be a big help. Thanks in advance for any help...bart

Lots of info over on the rennlist 993 and drivers education forums on trailing a 993.

Load nose forward to balance tongue weight, do not back it on. I have rented a U-Haul trailer multiple times for interstate towing. U-Haul has an over the wheel tie-down method (widget) that works well. Others with their own trailers use tie-down methods / kits that loop thru the wheels/rims front and back, but may scuff the rims if not down correctly. There doesn't seem to be any "good" underbody points to "hook" to without concern of alignment / damage if too tight or movement / bounce if the trailer takes a rough ride / quick stop. So a few track folks have ended up adding bolt on tie down loops to the underside for safer / quick hooking. Then there is the view that flatbed towing companies use "points" under the car w/o incident (for short trips).

YMMV.
