Towing recommendations

I have a Stinger XL112 that I used to tow my Gold wing. I sold the GW so I need to sell the trailer. Until then, I can't purchase a new trailer for the Spyder. Does anyone have any experience towing with a rental trailer? I would be going from Florida to North Carolina and back. I usually do the trip in one day, ( approx.820 miles) Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Ride on!

I assume that the Spyder won't fit on your old trailer.

Yes, no reason that a rental trailer would not work......if it is big enough AND you secure it properly.......and it has a full width ramp.

Note: Be careful of a ramp that is too steep, so that the nose or the belly doesn't scrape when going up or down.

My trailer is really nice with a ramp gate. Even at that I have found what works for me is to hook trailer on to truck then crank down on the coupler while hooked on to truck.
This puts an angle on trailer and ramp which keeps Spyder from scraping bottom while loading.

Also— it takes a large trailer to fit & haul Spyder comfortably. Don’t get one that barely fits!
You will rue the day you did

What size do you have? I've decided to buy a trailer. After a few rentals I would have spent that much money.
