You can get two jeeps on an 18’ trailer if you stack the bumpers.

Best case, we could be back to the trailers by Tuesday evening. That’s if nothing goes wrong and we don’t stop to smell the roses.

If we don’t have any major issues, it is likely that we would be finished with the trail Tuesday afternoon/evening, spend the night in Tahoe, and be back to our trailers Wednesday noonish.

Last year we didn’t make it to the trailers till Thursday noonish.

We may have made it back to Loon before noon. I don’t remember. We had enough time to make it to Leadville, CO that evening to do Holy Cross.

For now I am looking at alternatives based on family timing. Not sure what will work out. If I go, I would probably need to stop at Las Vegas to pick up my son. Have a Chevy Colorado (v6) and a 14 ft trailer. Towing 2 jeeps would be kind of hard. Have towed from California (March) and Moab (May/June). Appreciate the chance to participate.

If you wanted to ship you jeep, i'm less then 2 hours from the trailhead and would be willing to help out.

Yeah, I’m kinda looking for a different trailer to haul my Jeep out there this year, also.  That big ol’ 23’ box that I drag around doesn’t like to go past refueling stations without stopping.  I’m looking for a tandem axle 12’ utility trailer that’s light and open to save on the petrol expense.

Take a look at the Aluma (and other brand) aluminum trailers, Rick.  Rick Cline has a beauty - I think it's 12 or 14 ft. and weight is nothing.
