    I’ve called several companies and either they don’t have any trailers available to rent or the won’t rent to me because of brand new authority. Any ideas on where a new owner operator can rent a trailer?

    Not easy as a new authority. I had to look for awhile. When I did find one I rented for 3 months and then turned it in to buy my own.

    I like having my own a lot more, if you can afford it. You've got to pay for everything on a rental anyways, may as well own it and be working towards paying it off instead of throwing away money every month.

    I will sell your a 2019 wabash with skirts, fully loaded for 34,000 New tires, shocks, alignment.

    Guess I could sell you a 2021 for $40,000

    Skirts, shiny rear doors, skylights, tire carrier, vented, scales, inflation system, e track, etc.

    What about a 2022 wabash artic light reefer with new s600 thermo king? Fully loaded. $90,000

    I may start a trailer dealer if this keeps up. LOL :D

    #### your cheap, Jim Hawk in CB IA offered 27k for my 15 composite van with
    New tires shocks, alignment and almost new Michelin trl tires. Onboard scales and It was just polished with a buffer all around yes paint and aluminum.
    May have to sell it for the asking price now a days.
    No, not selling! but it is surprising the cost of good quality used trl’s . May have to sell in fall when new trl ordered and do power only for a month or 2.
