Trailer Needed

Alright. I'm a broke college student. I need a favor from anyone from the sportbike community. Me and my buddy want to get away from the chicago area for a week. We have enough for gas in my truck for the week, but we don't have a trailer to get our bikes down there. Is there anyone that can let me borrow a trailer from This Friday till next Thursday. I don't have any extra money to give you but I can trade services...I can mow your lawn..change your oil..or even Tint you windows Professionally(Of course you would have to provide the tint). Let me know. Thanks 815-351-4109 David

Uhaul gives you two days when you rent a trailer from them they aren't that bad - I think the one to get would be a 5'/9' trailer. I think I spent less than 90 dollars after insurance, but some credit cards and some insurance companies will insure the trailer just call and ask em.

Just a thought to keep in mind... I see that you have somewhat of a tight budget. Consider that the gas mileage will go down based on the size and weight of the trailer you may end up pulling.. (Drag) meaning the cost will rise on ya fast... Just something to put in the mix.. and you mention down there, where are you planning to go, are you going through mountains to get there? and what is the pull vehicle it says truck but weight to power good enough to get it done....

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

G2G might have saved our whole vacation. PM sent. We are pulling it with a 2003 GMC Envoy, and not trailering at all through the mountains. As soon as we get to any mountains..we are parking the truck and unloading the bikes...well thats the plan. lol

Design...We are going to be taking some other random trips over the next few months. Just to get some miles on our tires, I will let you know. I'm looking at a trailer right now...If we go I will have 1 open slot (If I can get the trailer). I didn't know g2g was selling his trailer..if I knew I would have snatched that thing up in a second. had a tie down point every 1-2 inches . G2G if you see this...Thanks again man for letting us use the trailer!

hey track heads

Im looking for a enclosed low hauler 7/12 single axle weight is ulta important
r&r's are 14-1500lbs , legends are13-1400lbs haulmarks are tandem and steel running a ridiculus 2100to2550lbs beavertails are NOT NESSESARY for rice burners and only add alot more weight.
the only available used on craigslist are squids asking for more than they are worth thus why they cant sell em.
so if anyone is upgrading or selling ive got 3-4000.00 depending on year model and condition. thanks
