Camaro5fest...trailer hitch???

Ok, I know I'm going to get a lot of flack from some, but here it is: I live in North West Tennessee and I plan on going to C5 fest. I want to use my drag radials but I don't want to drive that far on them and they won't go inside the trunk or car. I have this tiny inclosed padded trailer that would be great for hauling a compressor, hydraulic jack, some tools and my drag radials. I've looked and there are trailer hitches of just the right size to haul this little trailer and they say they're hidden from view and cost about $150. They couldn't weigh more than 15lbs and they say there's no need to drill holes. What do you all think of the idea?

I would rock one!

and I probably will if I don't trailer my car.

I kind of want to trailer my car so I can beat up on some stock SSs in my tow vehicle, LOL.

Hey, You live in an area where there will be a ton of cars passing fairly close... The Texas and points West caravans will be in the area... We could probably find someone coming by that could carry the tires for you...There will be lots of Camaro's on trailers behind trucks... Mine may be one of them, and a little detour is no problem.. Just offering

What a great offer...as we get closer, I will certainly be contacting you. That would be a better plan than the trailer. I will let you know.

Sorry for the tread highjack, but I will gladly carry parts for anyone if I do trailer my car.

I had a friend drag my car on a trailer last year after I broke half way there.... That's what we do....Certainly keep me in mind....If I can't, I bet I can find someone else that would...

I put one on my 2011 Camaro Convertible and it look fine. No drilling easy on and easy off if u don't like it. I pull a motorcycle size teardrop trailer. I had a cover plate fabricated to cover it up. But it isn't needed.
