And that's the advantage of having a trailer: you get to choose. You're not barraged with requests, but you can always offer.

Considering that both a truck and a trailer would be supposed to have a very similar purpose, isn't that quite surprising that people would rather ask for the help of someone who has a truck instead of the one with the trailer (as long as they know about the trailer)?

No, trailers are mysterious things that are hard to back up.

I know, it's crazy.

But I didn't mean just borrowing the trailer, and eventually the vehicle already fitted with a tow hook in order to get the job done. I mean people would also request the owner to help loading and unloading it too. Then, naturally, the one who is supposed to be already used with backing the trailer would be there...
