Default Trailering with Windshield

I just installed a folding windshield on my 2002 Ezgo, just curious if most people remove it or leave it installed while trailering, I have about an hour trip to the camp at aprox. 70 miles per hour.

I'm with Mike There is another thread somewhere that talks about it. But for me, it's just cheaper to not take the chance.

Most times you will be OK leaving it on, but it's that .10% that make you wish you took it off!

A 1/4" windshield (more expensive) will hold up much better on a trailer than the economy 1/8" windshields. I have customers that trailer with the windshields on all the time. I've also had some that didn't make the trip.

If you can take it off, the do so. For short trips, I would leave it on...

Thanks for the input, that is what I was thinking too. Hate to ruin a brand new windshield. They don't give them away.

Take it off, wrap it in a blanket, and put it in the tow vehicle.

If you put it in the tow vehicle there will be no dead bugs on it.
