I have one but your kinda far away.

Just go to Uhaul and rent there car hauler. Just don't tell them what your putting on it.

I used one of there trailers to tow an 85 K-5 Blazer on 35's from Colorado to Michigan with no problems.

my buddy checked uhaul in lafayette and terre haute since its his truck. the biggest either one had was 6' by 14'. outside to outside, the tires on the dodge are 83" so i don't think it'll fit.

Something that wide. You may have to find a place that has equipment trailers. 83 inches is just shy of 7ft wide.

72 inches is 6ft.

My trailer is 84 inches wide. But like I said I am way to far north for you to borrow it.

yeah. we had a 24+6' deck over lined up, but the brakes don't work and the plates are expired. so we figured it was too much work to get it ready to make it from western indiana to pennsylvania by tomorrow night.
