Before we picked up our new Northstar Laredo we had to leave our tailgate at home. All the goods that normally went in the TC were moved into a large waterproof pickup bed vinyl zipper bag and a tailgate net which attached to 4 footman’s loops at the rear of the truck. Large 1k pound ratchet straps were criss crossed over the bag. We drove 1600 miles this way from N. CA. to IA.
