Trailer my Airstream from Tennessee to Colorado

Dear Forum Members:
I have recently moved to Eastern Colorado from Knoxville,TN. I have a 1965 Airstream 26' Overlander in storage in TN. I am looking for an experienced driver to haul the trailer to CO for me. The trailer is in good shape, tires, etc. Do you have some recommendations on how I can locate a reputable person for the job? Also interested in how the cost(s) for such a task are determined.
Your suggestions and recommendations are appreciated, and thank you for your ideas.

They will charge you by the mile. It will cost you more if you are on a time line. If you can wait and the company can make a load coming back then it will cost you less, because they will not need to deadhead back.
Or just do it yourself and make a short vacation out of it. The cost will be less.

Stay with reputable insured transporters. Expect $1.50/mile, zip code to zip code.

We use Kirby's RV transport out of Indiana to haul our new Airstreams from the factory to the dealership. You can give him a call and see what he would charge you.

Will a shipper trailer with contents?

Hello Again Everyone,
Do any of you know if those who are in the business of moving trailers around the country will do so with contents inside? I have loaded some boxes inside (anticipation of moving) but my wife says that a shipper might not take the haul loaded with boxes. Anyone have an opinion on this?
Thank you in advance for your opinion. Also, anyone have the phone number for RV Transport? No number on their website.

I have had 2 trailers hauled to me via a hauler i found on USHIP.com. Most recently a hauler bought a trailer to me from Ark to CA. It was full of stuff (awning parts etc) the former owner packed it all up wrapped it with cardboard and made sure it was secured for the journey. You can PM me for more info.
