Flatbed truck transport of glider in trailer? by [email protected]
I am trying to move a glider and cobra trailer from CA to GA. The obvious choice of having it towed is my first plan. I have been offered to have it transported on the back of a flatbed trailer behind a truck instead. Just because it is not the normal way to move a glider & trailer I wonder if...

I am 6'4" tall. I weigh about 200-210lbs clothed. My height is fairly evenly distributed between legs and torso. My arms are rather long, though.
