Renting a small trailer for bike pickup

UHAUL's price is right, it's just that most don't have a motorcycle trailer. Suggestions as to where else I can rent a small trailer from? Vehicle that will probably be doing the towing would be a 1996 Maxima or 1994 Pathfinder, pulling one bike.

You have to call around. The one on Dundee near 53 used to always have them.

Nothing yet, I just need to find a way to get it back because more than likely I will have to go solo to get it. I'm real close to getting Jack's bike, just need a few more bills. Hopefully this week. If it sells, I have a few other options on the back burner

The one in Naperville at 59 and 34 always has a few. Where do you have to go to pick it up?

If you decide to go with my bike, I do have to drop a friend off at one of the airports down there Sunday. I could bring the bike and drop it off. But it would have to be close to a done deal.

If you are still looking, I have a Kendon, and I live in Libertyville.

It weighs nothing, can haul 2 bikes.

I would call their 800 # and they will tell you the closest one to you that has one. I tried some other places and they wanted like $60-80. Uhaul was only $16.00.
