Default Can you store stuff in lowered hilo?

Hi all. New to this forum. I was thinking of buying a used 17 ft hilo and was wondering if stuff like surfboards...etc can be stored in the trailer while traveling (with the trailer lowered).

Another question: can one tow the hilo in its raised setting?

But, DO NOT tow with the top raised! It puts too much stress on things that are not built for it.

I have a 17 and I put two Kayaks in it when I travel with the top down, no problem. One on it side on the floor and the other cross ways straddling the couch and dinette , the dinette is in the down position.
