    I have a hitch on my lawn tractor. That is how we put it away for the winter. There is also a shot with the TV and the chuckbox covered with a grill cover.

    We found we could store many essential items under the tonneau cover.

    Ahh, I see you over here, too!
    Really neat setup! Tractor hitch seems handy. We’ve been able to just push our ALiner around, it’s so light. We pushed it into the garage, just the 2 of us.

    I have never seen a hitch for the front of a mower. It seems it would make it easier to turn than backing up.

    Chris, Looks like your off-road version is largely same size as our 6.0. Yes, storage is in short supply. We also had the manufacture add the rear deck but we bolted a plastic box on it from northern tool. We love it and keep fire wood, fire tools like shovel and a white fuel container back there. Few other minor accessoires are kept back there.

    So, is this storage while in garage or do you tow it with the tonneau cover?

    That's not in my budget, but I found an atv hitch that can be used on the back of my mower. It was under $20, but I don't think it will be high enough. The only thing I would use it for would be to pull the camper in the driveway, I don't have a garage.

    Yes it is the same as yours except bigger tires , heavier suspension and we got the electric brake option.

    Chris, Why would they give yours a "heavier suspension"? I can't recall for sure, but seems ours was listed at 700lbs dry.
