I rented a car transport with the dual tracks and open deck together with
a truck to pull it when I brought my Sunbeam Alpine home. Worked
beautifully; the Alpine fit on the tracks with a couple inches to spare.
Be warned, however, the first time round they promised it would be ready
and waiting for me, took my deposit, then gave the trailer to someone
else. I raised such hell that they found a way to rent me one the next day.
