Ok, so the wife and I decided we are going to take a trip to Yellowstone in September. I have yet to even think out what route yet but I need to find a trailer to rent for the wing.
I really don't care what brand just so long as it can make the trip. I am not in position to buy what I want right now so renting is the way to go if I can find one.
Any idea's?

I got my 16ft heavy duty trailer from TrailerMan, 18965 Kuykendahl Road,(281) 380-4167 for $800 but he also has the smaller 8-10ft trailers and I think he rents them as well. If you ever plan on buying one he's got the best price in town, I did my homework and searched everywhere around town. http://www.thetrailerman.net/

Oh go ahead and do like everyone else, over extend the credit card on a good used one from ebay.
Oh he11 no!!
I am waiting to find the slim chance someone is selling a good used one in the 08' dark red!
If i have to wait too long, the Alumilite is looking mighty attractive!

Buzzy, just my 2 cents here. The little lady & I are in the midst of our trip now. I bought a cooler rack & a Tbag to fit. We get 4 days of clothes & essentials in it. We have our luggage bags for bike for electronics, cover, tools & misc. I put a luggage rack bag on to handle our rain gear & some small suff.

I'm not totally against a trailer but I just didn't want to deal with it. As always this is just one ole fossil's opinion.

I hear ya. The thing is, like my wife, i am a bit of a pack rat. And I love to shop for historic or localized meaningful things. Maybe shipping everything back would be an option but it sure would be nice to be able to have a "Lazy Day" and just pitch everything in the trailer without having to "Pack".
I agree the rack would help but I would much rather have a trailer.

I picked up a Pac-it rack at Wing Ding in Nashville a few years ago, think I paid about $500 for it with the cooler pac also. Nice piece for a trip. It slides in your trailer hitch and is super simple to pull luggage off and carry. This spring I picked up a 2010 Alumilite trailer this spring on ebay at a deep discounted price that I could not pass up. Pulled the trailer about 200-300 miles so far with no problems. Missed out on trade in trailers at Buckeye Rally a few years back, asking price, $500. Both seemed to be solid but needing paint and clean up. Check ebay and craig's list, you'll be surprized on what you can find.
