Can I Rent an SUV to Pull a Boat or Trailer?


Rental outlets are closed, so I defer to the Ranters.

I have a cargo trailer that I need to pull once. Quote is $350 to install light package. I'm thinking I'm better off renting, but don't know if car rental places have SUV's with towing package.

What say the masses?

You own a truck or SUV without a towing package?

Are you some kind of pussy?

They won't let you tow with a rental car.

Rent a truck from Uhaul.

Most home depots rent trucks too.

I bet Uhaul is cheaper but I've never rented from Lowe's or Home Depot.

Uhaul is 19.95 plus .49 cents a mile for a truck. 5,500 pounds of towing capability.

BR to Memphis. I'd rather not go that far without lights.

I think U-Haul is going to be the best option. One-way and haul butt back home since we have to head up in two vehicles.
