I am relocating back to Colorado and have a raft trailer that I'm looking to have shuttled across the country. CT to CO. It is a 1996 CY-CORP roll off raft trailer. I've tried selling it in CT, but there is no demand for that item.

What would you do?

For my move back, I'll be towing a cargo trailer on my SUV, otherwise I'd tow it myself.

I know what I'd do if it were me, build a box on top of it and fill it with all my stuff for the drive out to Co.
I do realize that not everyone has the knowledge, tools, or ability to do that, maybe you could find a box to go on top of it, or possibly know someone capable of building you a removable storage on top? Might not be so expensive once you figure in the cost of a haul. It is something that can be done, I have helped my dad build several while growing up. Stake bed trailers, he would just drop 2x4 s into the stake pockets, secure them, and build a box around the vertical 2x4 s.
Not every trailer will lend itself well to this, and make sure you don't build something that will come off on the interstate and kill anyone.

I’ve had customers use uship.com. You place the item on the site with its details and owner/ operators bid. It’s often people looking for items to fill their load.

Oh Yeah,
Similar to driveaway cars I did back in the 90's. Don't know if it still exists.
People would pay driveaway much less than shipping their car by train. Driveaway would find people like me who needed to get somewhere & would drive the car wherever it (and I) needed to go, no cost except gas.
Once drove a late model convertible beemer from Fla to CA.
Good times...
