I'm going to hijack a bit here. I'm curious about your trailer hitch mount. It looks like you're using the stock bumpers correct? I assume it's for a winch, do you find the stock bumpers to have en ...

I completed your test. And these are the results. I did put it in reverse while on nine clicks and I could move, but it killed the engine at an idle.

Burley uses the eurovan 280 mm rotor.

Yes, that large rear rotor is pretty impressive since my big brake fronts are 288 mm.

I have noticed that it seems to hold better with less clicks when on a ...

There are so many vans on the Samba and across the world that I admire more than mine. The time, effort, and funds to keep these wonderful vehicles on the road is immeasurable.

So is there anything else that holds the top to the van besides Glue?

The 2 part Epoxy and Tiger Seal that bonds the top to the van is incredibly strong.
