Moving Furniture In the Ranger

Have you guys moved any? I might have to go pick up a Couch and Chair and I don't know if it would fit.

i bought a couch (7ft long) and a matching ottoman that was 3ft by 2ft and made it fit.

the couch those replaced was a sectional that mesured 7ft by 8ft and that went to the dump in one load. all you gotta do is lay one on top of the other.

i'm sure others will chime in with their moving stories....

well, yeah, but a dakota is not a ranger.

I hauled the entire contents of a 4-bedroom house in the back of a 48' U-Haul.

Front bumper to rear bumper they do have a 32'er, thats 25' of box space. I have seen 48' single frame trucks but there not that common, most likely it was a trailer with a shorty cab.....alot of movers use those

most box semi trailers are 53' if that gives all any perspective to how big 48' is..
