Transporting our trailer from MI to AZ

All, We are interested in moving our trailer to the Desert SW for Feb, March and April. The idea is to spot it in Phoenix and fly out from Detroit to vacation in it for a week in February and two weeks in April. We would have the trailer brought back by May 1st. We don't really have the time to transport it so we are looking for ideas on how to make that happen. Thoughts?

Some people on this Forum may be able to give you specific recommendations, but short of that, I would either talk to an RV dealer near you that deals with RV transport companies on a regular basis for their recommendation or Google "RV transportation" and take it from there.

Thanks! The Google search was a bit overwhelming but the dealer is a great idea....

You might be able to rent one that's all ready out there.
Might be worth it to eliminate the hassle of getting yours there for 3 weeks of use.
Just a thought.

I recently used you Uship to transport my Airstream from Miami to Virginia. it works similar to eBay in the shipping companies bid on your item to transport it. You can then look at their ratings and their prices and decide which one you want to go with. I was very satisfied and was able to move the camper for about $1000 which was much cheaper than I could have moved it myself plus it didn't take me 5 days. You can also get insurance to give you peace of mind. Good luck

For two short term stays such as you're considering, you might want to consider options other than the trailer - resorts, hotels, or VRBO. Costs will probably not be any higher than the trailer option, and you won't have to worry about the salt that your Airstream will accumulate en route.

We had a trailer that we purchased in MI transported to Texas. Reasonable cost, very trustworthy, would not hesitate to use him again.

If you would like his info, give me a PM.
