With gas prices the way they are...I'm "iffy" on the trailer.
Its a 1000 miles for me. I get 10 mph pulling the trailer, that's 100 gal, x 3.75 is $375 for gas, another $40 for toll is a whopping $415. No trailer I get 20mpg. ~ $25 for tolls.
Thats 50 gal. x 375 = $188 plus $25 = $213 plus $25 = $238. Roughly $180 more to pull trailer!!!!!!

Nice to be able to pull it just to have storage "in case" I buy something. But I usually don't. If I sell something, I buy something....1 for 1 more than not.

BUT: my friends at time have asked me to transport stuff back, usually no problem...I usually don't mind it if I have it there already. But, I don't think I want to pay so much more to "just in case" transport a buddys machine.

what would you do?????

I feel ya man...I can't even attend the 3 State Ride this year, as Im having to move closer to my work due to gasoline prices. The moving expenses pushed the 3 state ride right out of the picture...Hoping to attend the BIBR rally in June....Just GO if you can, one way or another...

If you love it, let it go. If it comes back, you've highsided!"
