Default Can I rent dual vehicle trailer?

This summer and friend and I plan on going to drummond for the third time four wheeling with our two jeeps. The 300 mile trip sucks in a jeep, and my friend's dad has the perfect tow rig, ford four door dually with 7.3L diesel. Problem is, we don't have a trailer, is there any place we can rent a dual vehicle flat bed trailer? I know you can rent a single vehicle trailer through U-haul but I don't see a dual vehicle. Thanks

The only thing I can think of is equipment rental places that may have larger heavy equipment trailers to rent. Not many places are going to buy $7-10k 30'+ trailers to rent out to people.

All Season in Cass City set us up with a trailer last fall. It fit two cars with room to spare!

989-872-4129. Tell them Josh with the race car sent you if you call.

Yeah but would they have fit if the one car had a tire on the rear and the front ends of both cars weren't crushed?

No, but it sounds like he has a couple trendy short jeeps, hopefully they'd fit without any disassembly.


88yj- We're planning on bringing that car back this year to toledo. Maybe with a metal fire extinguisher bracket this time.

The spare room is in between the cars... let me show you.



See? And they werent wrecked (yet) either... you just had to pull the bumpers and be careful with the hoods.




Alright, enough thread jacking from me. Good luck finding a trailer alumitub.

Thanks, im going to check with some equipment rental places when we get a little closer to the trip. I wish I had my own truck, then we could just both rent U-haul trailers.
