Renting tow vehicle
I want to thank everyone who responded with helpful information and encouraging words regarding my posting. I am leaning towards renting a new, adequate truck that is already set-up with a suitable hitch and trailer brake control. The expense to set-up my truck( new tires, tune-up, trailer brake controller, new tires, towing mirrors, hula dancer for dashboard), could more profitibly put towards a rental. My current truck is perfectly adequate for the few miles it is driven daily ,to and from work,( if it blows up I can bail out near my own airfield). I can just see the expression on my wife's face as we,my truck old rusty, and the trailer are accelerating backwards down slope, smoke pouring from every orifice ,( the trucks also )...,an 18- wheel Freightliner filling the mirrors, nuthin good on the radio, whilst attempting to ascend the summit that broke the camel's back,... F-150, whatever..,this is something I pretty much would like to avoid. Poor thing has been put through hell by me and my crackpot ideas . No need to add any further suffering if it can be avoided. (note to self :" stay on subject") So , to make a tedious story abruptly end , will try to drop-off the trailer in n. Georgia in the next few weeks and stay in it when schedule permits.
Thanks again for all your help, Crazy Packrat
