You will likely need to go with a commercial vehicle rental company that rents 3/4 ton trucks. You will find that these typically only do business 5 days a week, and are a lot less tolerant of one way rentals than a typical car rental place, and are a lot more expensive than a typical car rental place.
You might also check the cost of having someone deliver the trailer for you.
This is absolutely correct on the no tow with regular car rental companies.
Also for those recommending UHaul - their truck are usually only 1/2 ton truck with the base level 5000" & 500# HW ratings - PLUS & more importantly - they almost exclusively only have a 4-pin electrical connector, so you can't run trailer brakes off of them (UHaul's rental trailers have surge brakes). Moreover, since UHaul charges a daily rate + per mile - they quickly become more expensive than other commercial rentals.
Penske, Ryder, Budget Commercial divisions (not the car rental at airports & neighborhoods noted above) sometimes have trucks with 7-pin electrical connectors & 2", 2.5" or 3" receivers (you'll need an adapter for 2.5 & 3" to 2") - but these are more often than not a big box truck for moving, & more expensive than just a pick-up - which these 3 rarely have in their fleets. They do usually allow one-way & out-of-state towing.
Also, some few Toyota dealerships have Toyota's TRAC Rental System & may have pick-up &/or SUV tow vehicles in their rental fleet, but they usually don't allow one-way & out-of-state towing. So you have to call around to find one with TVs, that will allow you to go to GA, but expect a round trip to return it to the renting dealership - or better yet, just do it locally in GA & leave off the air flight to go get the trailer.
We've been using Enterprise Commercial since 2014 & get their 3/4 ton crew cab trucks, which will be new 2017 F250 or RAM 2500 (sometimes GMC/Chevy & a few 1/2 ton here & there) in the current fleet & all equipped with 7+4 pin & 2.5 or 3" receivers (they supply the adapter if you ask). They run us about $100/day or $800/week + tax & their full insurance coverage you'll need (unless your a business & can add them as named insured on your biz auto policy), & which includes 150 miles/day & 850 mi/week IIRC (we usually tow less in SoCal & Central Coast for vintage rallies, so never max out) - but they usually
don't allow one-way & out-of-state towing. So you'll need a waiver to go out-of-state, & would probably rent in GA, go get the trailer & return.
Note that the Dodge/RAM pick-ups have hitch receivers mounted higher on the trucks than the Ford & Chevy/GMC trucks, so you may want to request the Fords, & also ask for back-up camera to aid your hitching.
Otherwise, you may find someone to deliver it for you as noted above, but make sure that they're fully qualified, insured & bonded for any damage.
PS - We also during 2013 had rented Nissan Pathfinder V6 from TRAC from a dual Toyota/Nissan dealerships, until they sold off the Toyota side & no longer had TVs in their fleet. They also had Nissan Armada & Titan V8s, but we don't need that for our 3000# Avion, plus they were 45 mins away from us in Orange to Long Beach, while Ent. Comml. is 5 mins away.
