anybody know where I can rent,borrow, or buy a trailer?

I need to rent, borrow, or maybe even buy a small trailer (about 4x8) so I can haul the bike to trackdays. I rented from uhaul last time and the trailer was pretty heavy at 1280lbs empty. Looking for something lighter.

This is the 4x8 I got from Harbor Freight, it folds up to fit in the corner of the garage.

I don't really think it is stiff enough for the two bikes (it is ok for around town, but I don't trust it for longer trips), but it works fine for one.

15 bucks each track day is alot better then investing nearly 1K in something you'll only use nearly 12 times a year

well that depend on how much you use it! I have 2 of them I think tey are well worth it. I dont have to go and pay a fee when I need it. I just pull it out flip it open and load then im on the road what if you need it at night uhaul is closed ! Ive used it to rescue alot of riders off the road and made a little money off it!

SCORE! reserved one at the u-haul near my house. Last trailer i rented was from a really small uhual rental store b/c the larger store didn't have any available and I thought the trailer I rented was the m/c trailer but it was the ramp gate.

Thanks for all the replies guys. See some of you at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on Monday!

Good point, but my opinion was for people who only need it for trackdays and dont have garage space (me included).
