Seriously, it is easier to get a car transported than even a 13ft fiberglass travel trailer. Of course it can be done.
Living on the left coast you will find more Escapes closer to home and probably BigFoots as well.
Even if you find one at some distance, ask yourself this one question...
Why would I buy a Travel Trailer if I didn't want to travel???
Going to fetch a trailer can be one of the best travel trailer experiences.
I have often retrieved project trailers from long distances. Even if time is a factor you can really make a lot of distance into a two or three day round trip.
It is a lot of fun and you are only towing one way!
Also, many sellers will deliver or meet you part way, which a good choice if you are confident in the purchase. I once delivered one a thousand miles from home. Of course you will need to pay at least part of the expenses.
