I'm a gotta see, gotta touch kind of person too Carol. However, there are a number of members on this forum who's opinion I would trust. If you find something you'd seriously consider outside your 500-mile radius, ask if someone close by is willing to go look at it for you. With the use of a digital camera and the Buyers Checklist, you may be able to purchase something "sight unseen."

Hold the phone! I had to wait on hold 35 minutes to get a real person at DAS, but when I did, he gave me a quote of $3595 to ship that Burro in OH to Oregon!! Can you believe it? Their rates are similar to what Gina listed for a car, but it's WAY more for and egg (even though light), b/c it won't fit in a car space on a car hauler, is what he told me.

So the shipping would be more than the trailer. Sigh....Trying to figure something else out. Can't go that far, myself, at this time, for health reasons. Anybody have a friend in OH who wants and expense-paid vacation?

... CA to OH... a long trip! and with my car, I'll need electric brakes... so that means I have to talk the Big Brother into taking vacation time...
Two suggestions, although neither one is exactly something I've done myself:
  • Borrow the brother's truck, but not him - many people would not loan their vehicle to anyone, but I would loan one of mine to my sister...
  • Get brakes added (probably by replacing the axle) at a local shop in Ohio, then tow it home with the Vibe - allowing lots of time to sort out whatever may be found in the "shakedown cruise". The Vibe will need a brake controller, which can be added in advance.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

There are other services I've seen on the web. You post what you want moved from where to where and when, and people bid on moving it. Below are two I came across, I'm sure that there are more. Plus if the trailer is in an area where craigs list is or being towed to where craigslist is, you might find someone there. Possibly see if there is a community web site for either end, you might find someone that would appreciate having a room to sleep in while making a one way trip.

I live in Dayton Ohio, approx 5 hours 1 way fom my house to the trailer. I was thinking that if needed, I could go and pick it up and keep it for a little while until you were able to come get it. I am a little concerned about this because I am breaking all types of city ordinances as it is. I have my Trillium, friends (soon mine) U-haul, A utility trailer, tow dolly, and my truck bed in the back yard at this time. My brother does not have a job and I could ask him if he would consider deliverying it for you or my father who is retired. E-mail me if you want me to check on it.
