racer x, that link is what is the problem...it wont let you get past filling out the data on what youre towing. it doesnt give raw specs on the trailer by OL or wheelbases restrictions.

Ski- many of the vehicle rental places offer a discount to military (including retired) Ask them if they do.

Check Craigslist. Maybe you can pick one up on the way and sell it when you are all done.

got trailer reserved. come to find out uhaul trailers dont have brakes.
geesh.
had to change my ball to 2" 6000 2" shank. the one i had was 3500 rated.
uhaul tried to reject my truck saying my bumper hitch had to be attached to the chassis. all he saw was a ball hitch on a commerical bumper, not realizing omaha attaches their bumpers right to the chassis. man...he had my heart in my throat until i showed him!
so alls ready to go.
any advice knowing now my truck will be the primary brakes for the load? having it inspected next week.
