There are very few places that rent enclosed trailers. If you were in SoCal I have a friend who owns six and does just that, rent them.

If it were me I would contact your local places that sell trailers and ask if they know anyone who rents. They will probably get something for the referral. As far as someone letting you borrow a trailer it's highly unlikely. I have two friends I let borrow mine and that's it. Others have asked and I then refer them to my buddy who rents...and I get 20 bucks for the referral.

I myself learned to not let anybody use my open car trailer, a few friends used it and brought it back , messed up, and when you have a car trailer everyone ask, I finally would say you cant afford it. No one has asked to use my tag, I hope they no the answer to that one!!!!! To me asking to use a car trailer is just like asking to use your hot rod, both of them cost money

:lol: :lol: I was thinking the same thing, LMAO! :lol: :lol:

I had real nice 20' custom open with a nice 48"hx 32"d x 84"w box that I let one guy barrow, the second time he asked I suggested he just buy it from me, so he did! Now I need a trailer, never sold or though away anything I didn't need. :wink: :lol: :lol:

been there.Once mine came back witha flat. GUY told me as he was dropping it off that "one tire looked a little low". It had the sidewall cut open. Never seen the promised new tire from him. Another time a friend brought it back with the fenders pushed in..turns out he loaded a 4x4 with huge mudd tires on it too wide for the trailer and just wedged it in there.

why don't you go to the company building you this new trailer;;since it is guessing a custom built trailer you are talking big money there so i'd ask him to supply you a trailer to use while your big money[custom]trailer is being built;if they build custom trailers then they got to have reg. trailer setting on there lot also for you to use since they didn't meet the finish deadline that you-all agreed on.
