Open flatbed trailer to borrow?

Can anyone lend me one for next Wed?
I need to haul a small car from Lafayette.
Cash + beer.
Thanks in advance.

Don't have one, but FYI, Uhaul car trailers are about $55/day. These are full car trailers, all 4 wheels off the ground.

It's RWD.
U haul will work just fine.

If it's RWD I would suggest removing the driveshaft if it's manual transmission, and you're using a dolly. Manual transmissions don't like being towed with the driveshaft installed.

the u-haul car trailer weighs a ton, or 2, you better have a stout truck to pull one of those
