Hello Moved a couch last week and drove this 10 miles. There are lots of places in the volt to cinch ties downs too.

I checked to see if it was illegal and in most or many states it is not as long as load is stable. Some states have a 2/3 rule. Measure length form wheel to wheel and X by 2/3. That is the max that can stick out in some states. I did not readily find the florida law.

Hello. Not the best vehicle of choice for a couch, but is was pretty stable. That weekend the 20$/HR pickup's from Home depot where all out and gone.

The CG is just above the back edge of the car. The most important straps that made this possible are the straps on the forward end of the couch tied around the bottom of the seat frameworks. This pulls the Frwd end down and keeps the load stable. I had to put a tiedown strap all around the forward end of the couch to give these straps something to tie to. I kept the speed at no more then 40MPH and did not use the interstate for the 10 miles to the house.
In FL non commercially you can tow whatever you want, if it stick out more than 4 feet you have to flag it and use lights at night. Only other requirement is it has to be stable and you have to be able to stop.
TKS I googled it but did not find anything about FL
