I went to look at a Party and Fatboy tonight. When I saw the size of the Fatboy, I had the same thought, "How do you get that two a contest?"

I have two other questions, but I'll post another thread. No hijack. :)

I put my 2 Fatboys on 5 inch wheels, bought a metal ramp from Harbor Freight and rolled them right up into the trailer. With wheels, they are light enough that it was a one person operation. A truck bed is a little higher and would require longer ramps, but it would still work.

I've seen a Fatboy in Arkansas with a receiver hitch attachment and a cart. Just tilt it up to insert it and lock it on. Can be done by one person.
