Randy should we post pics of it?
The trailer is fine structurally, id put speedy on it right now and haul it with only 5 out of 6 good axles, its all cosmetic and some mechanical stuff, but it all adds up

No way should you be on the hook for anything and the trailer should be returned to you in the condition it was taken.

I am no Columbo but you have an MTI, your trailer therefore fits an MTI and there is only ONE out of state dealer that sells MTI's and would want to show off your trailer in Miami. That dealer needs to do the right thing and fix the trailer or atleast offer your $7500 for the rental fee

He's not talking about PIER57..... Read his post... We have our own tilt trailers, But if we did use his and messed it up, You can bet your AZZ, Woods would bring it back better than new. So keep digging boys you'll figure out who it is.

A couple years ago a very generous member here offered me one of his boats for the weekend to enjoy. Said it was sitting there and I could take it with no worries. I was very honored that he even offered. I didn't hesitate to turn down his offer for one simple reason. If a drive or motor went while I was operating the boat there was no way I could possibly afford to repair it for him. In my opinion I couldn't afford to borrow it from him regardless of his generosity.

I'm thinking your borrower was raised a little differently than some of us were.

+2!

Hell even when borrow my dads caddy for a night out on the town with my wife cause the truck is too big to be downtown i return it washed, waxed and with a full tank of gas! And i can say that all my friends are the same way in regards to eachothers property. If my buddy from Tampa fly's in for the weeknd and needs to borrow my truck i throw the keys and let him know where the ins card is...i dont have to worry about the truck coming back any less then the way it left.

Hell no!!!

I agree with mwinn1. Anytime i have borrowed anything I have returned it in the same or better condition. I have also been burned by people borrowing my stuff. Which, is why I no longer loan hardly anything to anyone, and I am more than a little hesitant to borrow anything.

The trailer was their responsibility while it was in there care and they should be responsible for any subsequent damages. Good Luck and if they don't make it right, screw em any and every way you can.
X 100! Good luck! If I borrowed sump'n from somebody & it broke/failed on my shift, it's my responsibility!!!

I borrowed a members trailer last year to pick up my new boat in LOTO, this member keeps his stuff in beyond perfect condition as do I. I haul it there and back no issues, then I am going to my parents and I blow a tire, it in turn took out the tail light. I repalced the whole tail light and replaced the tire washed and waxed the trailer and polished the tires and wheels and returned it. The owner tried to give me half the money for the tire and tail light I said are you kidding me? There is no way I am taking money from you. If anyhting I owe you! Point is you use it you repair it.
