Always take photos in landscape orientation. They will rotate correctly on forums.

Only take portrait orientation photos when you're taking someone's portrait. They won't be rotated correctly on forums.

30 packs, or 270 individual 1.33 square foot tiles.
I ordered and paid for 28 and I got 30. Got them from lowest on black friday and lowes.
It's significantly heavier than that load of wood.
The tiles weigh 1,400lb.

(Note: there are adjustable height hitches available. Acme Screw. Had one from Master lock years ago. Lay carpenters level on trailer tongue. Use wrench to level trailer via hitch ball height).

Use SHERLINE tongue weight gauge to dial in your 13-15%.

And, I used to deliver floor tile to retailers. Pallets need to be toe-nailed (oilpan 4 knows; others may not).

In the event of a rollover, proper securement means load DOESNT leave trailer.
Make fun of pickup owners, but fail this, and you’ve failed utterly.

A trailer means more time expended. More care.

I see pallets, riding lawn mowers, other yard care gear, building supplies
go in the bed of pickups then they drive away all the time at lowes with nothing securing the load to the bed.

In the air force I rigged loads to go in the back of air craft.
Vehicles, wheeled equipment, boxes and crates, 55 gallon drums.

Uh, huh. Rigged it and waved happy bye-bye as it flew away. I know your type. (All jokes).

Son was a Herk bird driver. He understood me well enough before he started my recommendation to see how the loadmasters did it.

Point about pickup was box walls. Easier to secure. E-Track the way to go (anyone offer such?).

I am not aware of E-Track for pickups, usually see that in trailers...

I have seen some kits for L-track or 'core' track for pickups, like this:
https://www.autoaccessoriesgarage.co...x-Tie-Down-Kit

I am curious about the track system in the Cybertruck and if the slotted floor is also some kind of track that would allow for adding in temporary load points...

Most of the time I was riding with my equipment, if it fit on one air craft.

My small trailer is kind of like an air craft pallet the way it's ringed with tie down points.
