If it's buckling I would not tow it anywhere, it is dangerous to be on the road. It could come apart at any time. Flat bed it to the repair facility.

It would be tough to find a towing company to flatbed a 34. It would probably be more cost effective to have a mobile welding guy come to the trailer. And, doing it this way, there is no way it could come apart and crash into the proverbial bus load of nuns and special needs kids...
