I could buy supplies in Reno and once I get to the playa I'd have a shade structure all ready to pitch a tent in.... Plus it would provide a place to hide from the dust storms. Do you think they would go ape shit if I brought it back covered in dust? I wonder how much it will cost for an entire week? Anyway, if anyone has done it let me know how it went. Thanks
" She and Aguilar each sued U-Haul, contending that a worn tire on the trailer suddenly deflated, causing the trailer and the Explorer to veer to the left. Koloszar's suit also named Ford Motor Co., asserting that the SUV's instability contributed to the crash.
In a deposition, a U-Haul manager acknowledged that the trailer should never have been rented because there was almost no tread in the middle of one of its tires. Even so, U-Haul denied this caused the wreck, citing a police report that Aguilar allowed the Explorer to drift and then overcorrected the steering.
Soon after the accident, a plaintiff's expert got a brief look at the suspect tire and rim. U-Haul said it stored the components at a company shop in Bakersfield, with a sign saying they should not be disturbed.
But in August 2005, after months of requests by the plaintiffs' lawyers to examine the parts more thoroughly, U-Haul reported that they had vanished.
"As to the tires, wheels and/or rims," a U-Haul lawyer said in a letter, "I am told that they are missing in action."

There's a lot of things that can go wrong with a vehicle. A company has to make sure their fleet is in relatively good working condition. Why was a trailer rented in the 1st place with tread so low? That's called lazy, negligent, corporate fuckery. Next time someone from the B.M community gets killed and/or maimed from a shoddy rented vehicle, I'll make sure to tell them it was up to them to make sure they were 100% safe.
