OK. The reason I would consider owning a trailer is for the convenience of
being able to use it whenever I need it, for as long as I want, without
making reservations or other rental hassles. Where I live (suburb of New
York City) some chain rental places like Ryder would only rent an auto
transporter to me if I rent a truck to tow it with. This is obviously not
practical. U-Haul had no such restrictions last time I used them. Had to
plan in advance to rent from them, though. Saturday morning, not raining,
stop by and there are none available. Might have one coming back later.
Maybe. This is a pain. I suppose they are easier to come by on rainy
Regarding the single axle utility trailer, I guess I just want to do it
safe and legal. I was under the impression that two axles with brakes on
both was necessary to meet these requirements.
