Wish I could snap my fingers and get it to you. Checked on mapquest, it's 1470 miles. Whew what a road trip. We might could check on a transit company pulling it up to you. Don't know what they charge.

Might be a long shot, but the Travel Trailer Companies use people to deliver trailers. They usually come back empty. I know they have a rule against back Hauling, but maybe you could work out something with them. I never understood the rule personally.

Best place to start is at your local RV Store. Find out when they have someone coming your way and where they are coming from.

Also, not sure where it was, been a few years, but I use to go to a site looking for hauls. Do some searching and I am sure you can come up with something. FYI they are called Drive-a-way services.

Just do it like they did the underground railroad. Get a list of members from the and in between the two locations and have everyone do lets say 100 miles ( for a slight fee of course to cover fuel expense ) Would be interesting to see how that would work.

yesterdaystractors.com is a place to look....they have a place to list hauling services and transport needed....you may be surprised to find the hot shots will move it for gas money as a backhaul.....the listing is free. I got my 21000 lb crawler hauled from Indiana to Oklahoma for $1100.....by listing it there.

THATS THE ONE! I could not recall that for the life of me, but as soon as I saw it I remembered it. I use to have some luck on that site.

The trucks are only insured to tow their product, no other cargo is covered.

Actually these are private drivers. Mostly retired guys looking to travel. The tow rigs are simply pick up trucks. Many do this as a husband/wife team. With one driving their own pick up truck pulling a travel trailer or 5th wheel and the other driving a motorhome.

Its the truck owners insurance that covers the trailer, not the companies, Its called Bob Cat insurance. However, when you sub contract out with the Drive Away companies, they have a stipulation that you can only tow for them. This way they know you will be coming right back!

Re: Enclosed Trailer For Sale


Well, back to the trailer.

What is the clear height inside of the trailer?
Do you have any built in features?
Floor in good shape?
Lights OK?
Brakes, tires?
Any damage that can not be seen in the pics?
Do you have a clear title?
What is the GVW?
What is the axle rating?
Are there brakes on both axles?

It's only 1050 miles for me!

Wow, really? No brakes on a trailer that size? That is very unusual.

In fact Arkansas requires trailer brakes on any trailer with a gross weight over 3,000 lbs.

I am looking for a trailer that has more than 6' clear height inside, I am 6'-1" and get sick of having to bend over in those things.
