Default Car Trailer rental in eastern PA?

Looking for a place that rents trailers,
Prefer an open car hauler, for a day or two later this month or sept. to trailer my car to the track
If anyone on here wants to make some $ renting me theirs let me know.
Just looking for something that is somewhat local in or around montgomery/bucks/lehigh county

Every Uhaul trailer that I have seen lately looks like it would be a nightmare to get an F body on. I know a buddy of mine was looking for a trailer to put his 77 firebird on and they said that they didn't have one that it would fit on. If I was closer to you I would "rent" you my trailer.

Uhaul can kiss my ***. They wouldn't rent me a trailer when I had to move 'cos I owned a Ford Explorer ... yeah, due to the Firestone bullshit lawsuits, they just stopped renting to Ford Explorer owners. I've seen "Budget" trailers being rented.

Uhaul has regulations to keep their liability down. I looked into renting one to haul back a vehicle I considered buying out of state. According to their website, after putting all my vehicle info in (TrailBlazer towing a Camaro), they would only rent me a dolly. It was several hundered dollars, too.

Find yourself someone friendly enough to rent you theirs.

wow read this earlier and loooked up a UHaul for mine. Was an 02 silverado 2500 towing a T/A. Came out to be an open trailor for whole car not just dolly. Was $50.99. Seeems like a great deal to me.

i had no luck with uhaul in the general area for a full trailer, only front dolly.
I am towing with a newer full size yukon w/ towing package, so i should have no problems towing it

I've used uhaul and had great luck. I really like their trailor with the fold out fenders. It was right around $50 a day from a local detail shop that does uhaul stuff too. I tried penske but they would only rent you one if you were towing it with their trucks.

I don't know how you all got such cheap rates! Are you doing local or one way?

I wish I would have known about that place! :Bookmarked: Those look some nice trailers!!

I rented a U-Haul car trailer when I took my car up to Slowhawk. It was somethin' like $50/day. Just be careful if your ride is lowered with the front of the trailer.

The U-Haul trailer included wheel straps and chassis chains.
