QA Fail: U-Haul Car Trailer

Try opening the door when the car is in place.

If you're moving long distances, chances are you'll be using a U-Haul for self-move. If you bring a car with you, having it in tow is a great way to transport it.

The only problem is that if you own a Toyota Camry, you can't open the car door when you drive up the ramp. This is because the U-Haul wheel rims guards prevent users from opening the door.

Why QA Fails This Implementation

This looks to be a problem with any sedan - not sure how their QA passed this implementation.

The Toyota Camry is one of the popular cars in America. It should have been part of the U-Haul trailer test.

The only way we were able to get around this is to open up the passenger door and go out of the car. The reason we didn't just use the front window is that you needed to close the window after getting out of the car. You can't properly close the window from the outside.

Simple solution would be to have the wheel rims be removable when loading and unloading the car trailer.
