That's a fair piece...
It's your decision of course, but I suggest you weigh the cost/benefit carefully.
There are a bazillion things that can happen to a wheels-down towed car. Pulling a trailer can be tricky, but towing a car can be downright scary.
If you trailer, you don't have to deal with bodging up your car hooking up a tow hitch (or the damage if you don't get it right), or disassembling your baby, hoping to avoid carnage (gonna toss that driveshaft in the passenger seat?). Or better still, the Big Fun of sudden storms, the flash terror of dodging a crater, a 50lb hunk of semi tire retread, armadillos, or just maneovering in small-city traffic (remember, a trailer responds to the helm much better than 4 wheels that only want to run straight).
Now, who knows; you might really be a very lucky fellow and have no issues watching your prize in the rear view as it follows ridges and ruts in the road, doing that slo-mo wander back and forth, and hoping the trace of its trajectory doesn't go parabolic. In which case, the modest cost of the rentals will outweigh the possible disaster, and I say more power to you.
Me, I've never won big in Vegas and I've always used a trailer.
Seven, come Eleven... Let us know how it works out.
Keep 'em flying...
