Tow Service

Hello, RV newbie here. We're back again hoping for more good advice. We are super happy our 25 FC will finally be arriving at the dealership in Katy TX the first week of June. Can anyone recommend a reputable tow service to haul our FC to a spot we've reserved at a Houston area RV park? Unfortunately, there is no news on delivery of our F150 we ordered back in January, so we have no vehicle to tow our FC until we take delivery of the F150 and our maiden voyage in our Airstream will have to wait until whenever Ford decides to schedule our F150 order for production. We appreciate any advice from you all.

You could rent a truck and tow it yourself. I think Enterprise will even rent you a 3/4 ton if you want one.

I would rent something or borrow one and move the camper to storage instead, or your driveway if it will fit and wait on camping until you have your truck.

Theres a place called uship, maybe look there if you have to hire someone.

Welcome Aboard...👍

Another vote for bring it 'home'...better that the first 'camping' experience happen where there is an escape route if needed.
Better to learn at leisure than be up against it with little help.

Home Depot rents trucks. I just saw a story on Facebook of someone putting their trailer in a storage yard with a rental truck.
Just don't go too small because you won't have a WD hitch or brake controller (Or maybe you will)

Uhaul also. We rented an F-250 from Enterprise for our first trip with SOB #2. It came down to comparing costs (Uhaul charges more a per mile charge while Enterprise was more an upfront cost).

Enterprise rents HD trucks through their Commercial side of the business. You can rent 1/2, 3/4 or 1 ton trucks. Around here, they charge extra if you are going tow something - there is a lock through the receiver.
