Even if he does live way down east there are NY to Connecticut ferrys from Port Jefferson and Orient Point that will make that drive much shorter, although more expensive with a trailer. The Port Jeff ferry might even be his best bet if he's just on LI outside on NY City.
I know you can take trailer on the Pt Jeff Ferry, never been on the Orient point ferry. I take the Port Jeff ferry every year driving from the in-laws in MA to family on Long Island.
