I just have a large bag with a long drawstring & quick-latch hook thingy, that gets tied off to one the eyelets on the transom.

A I cant loose it
B The bag is used to stash the straps & magnetic lights in once unloaded
C Everything goes back on in the reverse order - simples

Bought a VANGO RUCKSACK and it came with a roaring yellow rain cover that makes a great prop bag

Never had a problem always get oversized prop bags and tie them above the gearbox and cav plates so on the skinny part of the leg.

Like the design though Edd

Can't be bothered to fing the exact reg, but it is about ensuring there are no sharp object / part of laod that might injure others - do to with loads protuding beyond the vehicle I think. Need to be "highly visible".

Technically an oange sainsburys carrier bag would suffice.

I keep the prop covered both on tow and in storage - saves th prop getting dinged. Never had it come off. IMHO you're less likely to pulled by a bored policeman if you've a bag on - why give them an opportunity to examine your rig in (often ignorant or not fully informed) detail.

Like Whisper, I cut a hole in the bottom corner - lets any rain water out.

I had those for my small boat; they're nice and visible, but like a damn puzzle trying to put all 3 on in any kind of efficient manner.

these are fun to fit and the reflectors are not fitted when you buy it - at least mine weren't!

I use one of my old rucksacks - nice bright red & the drawstring keeps it on nicely. (along with the bungee wrapped around it & the prop)
