Hi, new member here. I don't use a camping trailer enough to own one, but I sure used to love to rent the UHaul egg trailers when they were available. I'm wondering if it is practical to find an egg to rent this summer for a trip from Michigan to Ontario. Do many owners rent their trailers or is that just too much hassle for them?

I've looked around and it seems that the only light trailers for rent are the canvas pop ups.

Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions.

I've seen a few places that rent fiberglass trailers (mostly Bolers and Trilliums), but have not noticed any in your area (the ones I remember were out west).

Kind of neat that you rented the U-hauls back in the mid-80s!

Individual owners tend not to rent; it is too much hassle.

There have been small Rental Businesses devoted to renting Fiberglass Trailers in different locals in the past. The biggest outfit since UHaul got out of the camper rental business was Kidee Kamper Rentals of Johnson City, Tennessee. But they're gone now as well. The only remnant of them ever having existed is this YouTube video of their entire inventory being pulled in one train for publicity.

There used to be members here who owned a small rental business in Canada. They used to rent out a few refurbished Trilliums, but they too have closed their business.

The Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton used to have their "Moral, Welfare, and Recreation" rent out Scamps to servicemembers... But they auctioned off a large group of trailers last year that were too damaged. I don't know if the military still does rentals for servicemembers.

Too many people have lost too much money trying to rent...
