    we got a custon 5'x8' trailer for 400$ about 4 years ago for camping gear and our dirtbikes and we just sold it for 450$, it looked brand new still so shop around good we saw it on craigs list and towed it home 100 miles but it was worth it

    Are you looking to buy or rent?? Cruise craigslist for your area if you want to buy- I find trailers pretty often.

    I'm sure you can get a trailer from UHaul for the trip- but it might cost you depending on how long you are going for...

    X2 on Craigslist. If you can be bothered, buy one on CL then re-sell it. Renting trailers from UHaul is expensive for what they are.

    Step bars, billet grill with custom TOYOTA, MB Quart RSI 216 components, Hifonics ZXi 4410, RAAMmat deadened doors/back wall/roof covered with ensolite , 24" Magnaflow muffler, hand polished stock exhaust tip, tinted, OEM TRD Bilstiens all around with 1/4" spacers up front to level it out. Sport wheels added.
    This is what I haul all over the dang place. It's a Harbor Freight 40"X48" with 12" tires. I figured out how much decking I needed and added the chock and eye bolts for tie down points. All the eye bolts go through the corners of the frame underneath. It's been extremely easy to use and very functional. One man operation totally. Even with the bike on the trailer, you can move it where you need to no problem. I took the time and centered the bike over the axle so it tows great. Best part is...MAYBE $250 total in the trailer. Been using it since 04 or 05 just about weekly. Normally use it to haul my dragbike to the track. Gets towed by a 4 cylinder Accord or my 4 banger Taco. Here's a pic with one of my new bikes on it.
