Had to select low box to get mine around and up there this week from a standing start.

I saw a Ribtec GT with twin Verados over at St. Mawes last year. Biggish bloke with a blonde wife from memory.

The greater value was on the horizontal rather than the vertical.

The purchase of my current RIB was made possible in part by the insurance settlement from the totalling of my last one when I was rear-ended sitting at a red light years ago. A woman skidded 90 feet on a dry, straight road, right into the back of me.

It's amazing what good "airbags" RIBs on trailers make. I hardly felt the collision in my truck. The driver was charged with "careless driving"...

Hopefully some similar good will come of this.
