Default Do i need to remove the top to haul it in my truck on the interstate ???

I think I have found the right cart for me. It's a little bit of a drive to get it home, and I plan to haul it in the back of my truck. Should I remove the top to travel at 75 mph? I don't want the top to get torn off by the wind. Once I get it, I'll post some pics.

I've hauled all kinds of carts all over the place in trucks and on trailers. Never had a problem with wind wanting to tear the top off, provided of course that the top isn't missing some hardware.

A windshield is what will get you into big problems, best to remove it if it has one so it doesn't catch so much air and potentially tear it off.

Thanks for the advise. I hadn't even considered the windshield. This is a great forum, and I'm pumped to get my first cart.

Also, run a bungi cord around the seat. I've heard they can fly off. I almost lost one on a particularly rough railroad track once. Same goes for a backseat. If it has a flip seat that is turned over, it can bounce enough to rip the screws out leaving your cushion on the roadway :(

Definitely take off the windshield. Even if it doesn't fly off, I've seen them crack in transport from the force of the wind pushing on them.
