Any ideas on how to load a Mark III Xtra into a 26 foot moving truck.

Lot easier if the truck is sitting still....Smile  

  I would go nose first...secure the main gear to the floor with straps that go under 2X2's that are screwed to the floor in front and at the rear of the wheels..
  I would elevate the tail boom a bit in front of the horiz stab....on a pedestal that is screwed to the floor... maybe 5 or 6 inches wide and cushioned with thick foam or couch cushion.. Strap that ....
   Drop the wings to the floor on Couch cushions leaving them attached at the rear spar.... secure the wings with some long straps..

the wings want to drag on the ground if you run them up a ramp that is too steep, I like to put the tail under a 5 gallon bucket and always use pipe insulation around the tail and ailerons . also saran packing wrap helps hold thing together without chaffing .and never store things inside the fuselage that can shift and poke holes in the fabric.

FWIW - I hang the wings on the walls. tailwheel rides in a track between 2 2x2’s screwed to the floor.Electric winch hauls Xtra into trailer. Strap down mains, put boom tube non a strong suppport & lash down. Struts, center section hang on walls too

Thanks for that Herb and Russ.  I assume ramps would be need to lift it into the truck (or a couple of weight lifters)?

Dual time is good especially if you’re a GA pilot.
Those big trucks can give your mklll a rough ride and worst in the back. Be sure to support the wings where they attach to the universal joints.
