What do you haul in your EB?

I was just wondering what people actually are able to haul in their EB unit? Do they use it for that or they just preferred the decor/configuration?

My last rally I had one next to me. They opened up the back and pulled out two 16 ft kayaks.

We carry our bikes in the back of the tow vehicle and do not have kayaks.
Quite frankly, we bought the EB so we could open the hatch and enjoy the view!

The screened view ...or raft, bikes, motorcycle. It is just much easier loading! With trailer backed into our driveway and the AS "hatch" and garage door opened we load directly and out of the weather!

I haul my street bike to track days around the midwest. Works like a champ but I would like sturdier D-Ring tie downs, the ones they have make me nervous.

We bought the EB specifically so we could haul our 17' kayaks, but really appreciate the ability to completely open up the back and let the outside in, even when we are traveling without the kayaks.

I wish....well actually I wish it were an 1098R.
On a side note I went to rinse my black tank and after connecting the hose and turning on the faucet, water started running out from the wheel well. I asked the AS dealer mechanic and he told me that the back flow broke valve broke. He then told me the part is a P.O.S. and you can remove it to prevent future problems (which I did).

Yup...me too. I've been recommending removing it PRIOR to troubles here on the forum since mine too flooded the place. Falls on deaf ears to many. It WILL happen, just a matter of time.
