I actually have the trailer itself fully insured, however, I still don't know if it would be covered if someone else were pulling it. But now, honestly, I don't care. Regardless if it would be covered, if he causes an accident, I don't want anyone coming after my insurance for something he did wrong. Just trying to cover my @ss, something I've grown to do a little more often as I grow older and wiser, well no I get not wiser...

That would actually work out well, the trailer's is for sale anyway. This way, it also gives him incentive to bring it back up here in a timely manner when he's done with it so he can get his money back. Don't get me wrong, this guy may be a good friend of mine, but he's never been the most mature and responsible one...

And it's also not so much that I don't trust him, it's just that a lot of things can go wrong when pulling this big of a trailer that will probably weigh in at over 15k pounds when loaded up, regardless of how responsible you are or how many precautions you take.
