Hello all,

Is there anyone coming to the autocross school, that can tow the trailer?

Trailer is currently in the Dulles area.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We still need someone to tow the trailer.

Please contact us if you would be willing.

He's out of town on the 26th.

Is there a tow budget?

We rely on volunteers ...

No one has a vehicle with a hitch?

We could rent a truck? I'm sure the club could cover the cost of that. I'd volunteer, but it makes no sense for me to drive to Dulles, to Sykesville, back to Dulles, and back to my home which is 7 mins from Sykesville.

Truck rentals cost more than most people think ...

I've just called a couple of rental places and they aren't cheap. Especially since we will need it on Friday as we will need to leave FunKtion no later than 5:30 am. (and no rental place is early that early).

I got a quote from Sterling, VA to Sykesville and back for 19.95 a day, and $.59 a mile. Round trip is about 130 miles. Pickup at 5:00 Friday and return 5:00 Saturday.

So it would cost about $100 to rent, plus gas ($~25). Not too bad, right?

There's no way of returning before they close on Saturday. Most UHaul places close at 6:00 and unfortunately there's NO way that we would be ready to return it by then. Even if everything went perfect and we left at 4:30, the earliest that we could have it back is 6:30.

And I think that price is not that great. We either can find volunteers or charge more for admission at events.

I sent a PM about it. I doubt after over 6 months that it would still be for sale.

If you come here and put my new 350 into my Tahoe, you can borrow it :)

If noone steps to the plate, I'm buying a trailer hitch for my M3. I've already found a company that has them in stock and it's relatively inexpensive.

That would be a first view for me, nice! How will that affect the M3's balance? Improve it? though total weight will suffer. But you can always pull a Kubica to compensate for the added weight :tongue:
