+1 on that! The first sled I ever rode was an Elan, and that's exactly what I did. Get stuck, pick the sled up, move to fresh snow, go. Froze to death, could not figure out why people thought this was fun
To load, two of us would grab a side and pick it up and put it in the bed of the truck. We put three sleds back there, two facing forwards, one sideways on the tailgate. Memories!
The 1990 AC Prowler kind of reminds me of those old elans. My Prowler was fun, nimble, not really heavy compared to most other sleds, and mine was very dependable.
