Is there a place that rents enclosed trailers large enough to load your T in? I know you can rent open trailers from U Haul, but what about something like a 16' enclosed cargo trailer?

Check your local trailer dealer. Sometimes they also rent.

Type in "Cargo Trailer" in your local want ad site. Sometimes private owners rent them cheap. I hope you know what size you need. A folding windshield runabout will fit in a standard 7x12. Not sure about a Touring and don't forget to check for tie down rings of course.

I don't know how much renting an enclosed trailer would cost, but You might want to consider buying a new or used one to haul your T home and sell it when you are done.

Good used enclosed trailers seem to hold their value somewhat and usually sell fast on Craigslist if they are a desirable size.

Looks like the car hauler to rent requires a 3/4 ton truck....

If you are looking on CL for one to rent, just place a small "wanted" ad on their as well and see if some private owner has one sitting on their yard doing nothing. For a couple hundred bucks, he might rent it out to you. Make sure you car insurance covers a towed trailer and it's contents and that your tow vehicle is rated to tow the weight. If something happends on the road, your insurance company is looking for a way out.

Also be aware that hauling an enclosed trailer is a target for thieves working the hotel circuit. For the same work as stealing one car, they can steal your personal car, the trailer and whatever is inside it. The thieves don't know if it's a 10k Model T or a 100k race car.

A question, not to hijack the thread, but, are all enclosed trailers capable of supporting a vehicle inside? I've been in many Boy Scout trailers that seems the flooring is just plywood.

Any trailer you could rent or buy from stock would probably have a standard door opening. This would not be high enough to put your car in with the top up, so just be aware of that shortfall.

Long time ago on this forum, there where two people that uses dock trucks. One rented from uhaul the other owned his own truck.

I recall the uhaul guy, screwed 2x4 wheel chocks the the wood floor, and if I recall screwed in pad eyes to the floor to strap the car down with.
