In a few weeks the plan is to trailer the elise up to michigan so that kestrel's CO can spend some quality time with her evil step-sister (my KG) for the Woodward Cruise/import hating festivus. This will be the first time they have met face to face, and I hope they play well together. Anyways, I've never trailer a car before, and frankly do not have a trailer. I do have access to a tow vehicle for the 9 hr journey. So, a few questions:

1. Where is the best place to rent one from, and what "features" and/or dimensions should the trailer have?

2. What is the best way to get the car up on the trailer to avoid any damage?

3. What is the best way to tie it down and where can i get straps? or should they come with the trailer?

4. Should i cover the car with anything on the drive?

5. What are some things to remember/look out for when driving with a vehicle in tow?

6. Any other questions i should be asking?

I know some of this information is scattered about the forum.....i was hoping to get it in one place for my benefit and others in the future.
