Default Rent a Trailer?

I am thinking about going to Watkins Glen August 3-6, but to do so I would need to trailer all 3,500lbs of Mustang. I have a standard 2" Class lll receiver with both 4 pin and 7 pin connectors.

If anyone has such a trailer available please let me know. PM particulars.

Thank you.

Marc

This is for pulling with the E350 (or is that a Merc)?

2006 Land Rover LR3 with 7,700lb towing capacity.

Mustang is 16' long.

I should have included this in the original post.

Thank you very much for offering.

I checked with Trailex and my car is too porky for the 7541. They stopped making the 7541 in favor of the 7551 which handles up to 5100lbs.

Again, thanks for the offer.

Marc

I booked a UHaul trailer to go fetch the miata my daughter is buying.

Put in what car you are trailering and the website says if it will work or not based on whatever data they have. This will be my first car towing experience.

I also rented a UHaul trailer, for my 2400lb Volvo. I think the trailer weighed almost that much by itself, you might be up getting up near 6k lb loaded.
