Tow Vehicle Rentals???
« on: April 07, 2003, 12:17:37 pm »
Does anybody know if any of the rental places rents suv's you can tow with?  I can borrow an enclosed trailer, but have nothing to pull it with (tired of borrowing mom's leased Durango).  My Acura does fine with the little open trailer, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna pull an enclosed with it...lol.  TIA

I thin Hertz rents Expeditions with receivers on them.  Ihave also seen some full size trucks from Enterprise around here.  I would reccomend just calling around to find out.

Everytime I've rented a Ranger from Hertz, it has had the receiver on it.  Even though it is there, you are still not supposed to tow with it.  Trade in the Acura for something that hauls.

UHaul.  2500 GMC pickup with a reciever.  Several at any dealership.  Tell everyone that they sponsor you! ;D

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"

I don't think any major rental company will let you tow your trailer with their truck (checked a few years ago). A small local outfit might let you do it. You would need to call around. Unfortunately your best bet is to buy your own tow vehicle. Super Dave bought a small (for a bus) diesel bus for $3500.

Nah...the wife loves that car.  I am planning on buying a cheap SUV or pickup, but it's not in the cards for a few months yet.  The motor money didn't help much, but that comes out of a different budget.  I'll probably just borrow the Durango and get 10 mpg again...lol.

You;re going to get about 10 towing an enclosed with just about anything...except maybe a diesal.

I only get 10 out of my Envoy @ 75 or so.
