We had been looking for a trailer for a few months when we found one that fit our needs and budget (a 1975 Argosy 24'), but unfortunately it was in Wisconsin and we live in Virginia. After we "settled up" with the seller, we "guestimated" what it would cost for us to go get it - time off work, gas to drive there, a few nights in a motel, boarding our dogs, etc... and we decided to hire someone to tow it here for us. I got some bids from uship.com and I also called an RV dealer in the Wisconsin area and got a name from them of somebody they knew of that did that kind of thing. The guy I went with was an independent hauler and he did a great job. He got the trailer to us fast and in good condition. He did want about half of the money up front which made my wife a little nervous, but in the end everything worked out and we were pleased.
I know that if I were in your shoes and I found the trailer I really wanted, I'd hate to wait until December to go and get it. Best of luck!
