Bend or Bozeman to Denver???

Anyone planning on driving from either Bend or Bozeman down to Denver (Fort Collins actually) in late March or April?

I am trying to buy a raft trailer from either of these locations and was looking for someone that may be making to trip that would be willing to pull it.

It's a lightweight raft trailer, any vehicle with a switch should have no problem pulling it. Willing to pay $150 if you're headed this way, should cover most if not all your gas.

Let me know, thanks.

Possibly in June (from MT to Denver/CO Springs)

So it would be from MT for sure, I've opted for the trailer in Bozeman. June would be too late for me though, hoping for end or March through end of April if possible.

Thanks for the offer for June though!

Which trailer are you going with? The Aluma trailer? I didn't know there were any custom trailer places in Bend...

This was the place in Bend: https://bendtrailers.com/iron-eagle-...ition-trailer/

They are one of the only places that stocks an 8' wide trailer which is what I want for my big 16' raft.

I ended up going with a custom guy in Bozeman instead though since its half the distance as bend and may be able to meet me in Billings.

The trailer will be done by March 27th, so if anyone is coming down from Bozeman that following weekend or two I'd love to work out a deal. Thanks.

Snowmobile trailers are not ideal, they work but no winch, no roller, sharp side walls and usually tiny little 8 or 10'' wheels.

I found the trailer I want, I am having it built in Bozeman, just need a little help to get it to Denver if possible.

There is a facebook group "bozeman whitewater" that may be useful.
