ZFT3 Highway Trip Tower Up or Down

Wasn’t sure where to post this, but we have 07 Xstar and have 2 trips booked, each one is about 5 hours one way on the highway. The seller said no problem towing with it up, and we did that when we brought it home but it was a much shorter trip. What do you guys think, ok with it up? Does it move much? Is it hard on the gelcoat mounting points? Thanks

That tower is towed up. Check connection points before and after you travel, they may need tightening.

Up, agreed. If your worried about bugs, you can shrink wrap it.
If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.
