Then if my trailer is big enough I would love to also help other people get there as well if I can.
Rentals dont work that way, you pick up the trailer Friday night and return it Sunday night so pay for two days only. Daily M/C trailer rental is $15 so for two days after tax comes to under $33 total.

So depending on how often you need to use a trailer you have your answer on whether cheaper to buy or rent. If buying don't forgot about storage, maintenance and annual registration costs slightly higher than a car.

If renting dont forget about the hassle of picking up and dropping off, time doing paperwork and unavailability at certain times.

Ive seen people load dirt bikes on those hitch haulers all day. There is no way I would load my big bike on one of those. I used to rent from uhaul. they are pretty cheap and if local I would rent tbe trailer around 6-7 pm and drop it off the next day after tbey closed. For example I would pick it up friday at 7.pm. And as long as it was back in tbe parking lot before they open sunday I would only get charged a day. its still a pain in the though. Now I just load it up in the bed of my truck. If your going to be in this sport for a while just buy your own trailer, less hastle. or you can just buy a truck...... :-)

Weird I called up uhaul and askekd the guy If I picked it up friday night and returned in on saturday night, they would charge me for two days. and it was like 25 per day about $60 for one track day basically. maybe he didnt know what he was talking about but that was the answer he gave me over the phone. I went out and bought a trailer for 260, i thought registering it would be cheaper than a car since theyre much cheaper. I have a garage to keep the trailer in.
