Focus Wagon: Alpaca hauler !!

OK, I'm sure other Focus Wagon owners have great stories about odd stuff they've hauled... but how about this?
We have a few alpacas & have always had them delivered. Last week we bought to young'uns and needed a way to get them home. Looked at our '03 ZTW and decided to just go for it.
Worked like a champ!! We loaded in a bale of hay first, then gently picked up each alpaca and put him in. No problem. One cushed (laid down) the whole way... the other stood up and "surfed" with head down... looking out the windows and munching.
So... who needs a pickup or a trailor!? These cars are great erand runners!

THAT IS AWESOME!!!!

Best thing I hauled on my wagon was one of those giant floating islands...fully inflated!, but we were at a campsite and never went over 20 MPH...but it stuck over the sides and down over half the windshield!


WOW, we have the SAME wagon!..except for the leather, and we almost did that!

Next: Transit Connect (when available with TDCI engine and DCT)

Then you can haul a Charlie Sheen load : 2 1/2 Alpaca
