:smack: I know, it’s the dumbest GQ asked so far, right?
I’m a city girl, and not pickup savvy. However in a few weeks I’m renting a pickup to go camping - hubby’s taking our car somewhere else the same weekend. I’ve got a “Chevy Colorado, Dodge Dakota or similar” reserved at Enterprise, 'cause it’s half the price of an SUV. They’ve confirmed it will have four seats and is car seat safe for the toddler, but I’m not sure how to make sure all my gear isn’t flying out all over I-90.
Will I be able to lash a tarp over the whole shebang somewhere without damaging the paint or body - I’m thinking maybe with bungee cords? Just how big (feet, inches) is a pickup truck bed, anyway?
As for the stuff itself, does it need to be packed any special way? Heavy stuff near the front, or in the middle or anything like that?
Does anyone know of a visual guide for pickup truck loading for dumbasses anywhere on the internet?
