Rent a tow rig?

Postby Petevb » Mon Apr 12, 2010 4:24 am

So if one had trailer, but didn't have a tow rig to tow it, and needed something for nearly two weeks and 5000 miles (San Francisco to Michigan and back)... what could someone rent to tow a trailer and car with? Any ideas other than a U-haul box van?

Pete, check with Enterprise rental and Hertz. They both rent trucks of various types...that could pull a car hauler...
for a typical open two axle trailer and even a 20' enclosed trailer, a decently equipped 1/2 ton pickup will work great...A Tahoe, Suburban, Expedition will work well also...
I have pulled fairly large open and enclosed trailers with my 2 past Suburbans with great success. A Ford E350 van would work also, just not quite as comfortable for long hauls.

Penske as well. They have well developed nationwide network just in case something happens and you need repair.
