    For a camping/fishing trip to California May 16 - 27th

    8,9,10'- something I can haul extra camp gear.coolers, etc behind my Ranger P/U. Actually not alot but enough to put quite abit of firewood in my truck. Our annual trip to the McCloud and Fall rivers has grown this year into a quasi-bachelor guys weekend for our son that is getting married in June and need to haul more gear/firewood.

    We would put aprox 15-1800 miles on it during the trip.

    thank you :thumb:

    Davy, unfortunately mine stores my raft in the boat yard but I recently purchased the 12' utility trailer at Home Depot and it rolled nicely to Billings MT and back. I think it was about 650 new
    Maybe buy?

    I was looking at those a couple days ago, your pretty happy with it then? I saw the price for the small one and then theres the larger one- do you know what the cost was on those? Couldn't find a HD sticker anywhere on the larger ones.

    I may just do that. Thought I'd see if I could find someone to let me use one first since I really very rarely need one. Often I just use the driftboat as a trailer.

    thanks

    Check U-Haul-- prices aren't unreasonable. If you really don't want to buy another item to license and store, it's not a bad option-- on the plus side, you have on-road service in case a tire blows. I've done the "adventure in moving" thing a couple of times, and I've been impressed by the low-ish prices. I've rented a covered big trailer for something like $100 a week. Since you don't need something that big, you might be able to get it for a lot less. Another option is buying a trailer from Harbor Freight. Their trailers are almost dirt cheap, and I've heard some praises about them as well.

    the HD trailers are made by snowbear (online somewhere). I think HD just has one model but may be wrong ... the tail gates drop up/down making it look much larger/smaller. I would recommend the rental for once a year also ... the tag was somethign like 90/yr. Would offer but it holds my boat

    cheers

    davy- i work at home depot and the price of the larger trailer if im not mistaken is 950. They are nice trailers and I have not heard a single complaint from any of the customers that have bought them.
