I'm looking to move to Florida this fall and I was maybe looking into
renting a small truck (Uhaul, Penske, etc) and a trailer to put my suv on.
It's a 2002 Durango STL+. However, none of the carriers offer a trailer
that can accomodate an suv of that size. Anyone have any ideas of who might
or how I can do it? The reason I ask is because even though I don't have a
lot of furniture, it's too much to pack up into the suv itself and drive.
If you don't have a lot of furniture, wouldn't it be cheaper and easier
to add a hitch to the Durango and pull a trailer for your furniture with
it? Otherwise, if you rent a truck and trailer, you'll be forced into
renting one of the moving van style trucks, which use lots of fuel and
are charged by the mile.
A Class III hitch can be obtained for less than $150 ( check
etrailer.com ), installation would be extra, but U-Haul could give you
an installed price. The pull type trailers are a lot cheaper to rent
than the trucks AND trailer.
Another option, since you allude to the fact that the amount of
furniture is just slightly more than you can pack inside the SUV, you
could also buy a cargo carrier that inserts into a Class III hitch
behind the SUV and could be useful for carrying some extra cargo. These
can be obtained at WalMart for about $55 and can hold up to 500 pounds
using a class III hitch.
if you really want to haul it. they will fit on a 6x16 equipment trailer.
that's what I used to move mine but it was a extremely tight fit. there are
car carriers that size or larger (20 foot I believe is the average)
