Trailer Insurance

I'm looking for names & numbers of insurance companies who insure toy boxes (cargo trailers). So far, everyone I've called says no.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Sandsledge & Sailaway, if you haven't done so already, I suggest you check your jetting (or have it checked). Removing the air box lid affects your jetting and without compensating for the additional increase in air, it could lead to a premature engine failure. Might want to consider a water cooled ...

Overall good advice, anyone towing with an auto trans ought to be using an auxilliary cooler, but removing the stock cooler built into the radiator does not hurt or help the situation.
