Part Time Tow Vehicle

Besides uhaul, does anyone have any suggestions for rental of hardy tow vehicles for one week increments?

We vacation once or twice a year and do not need a daily driver which is capable of towing an airstream, wondering what outfits on a nationwide basis may rent such vehicles.

Any/all help appreciated.

This place rents trucks and vans - from 1/2 to full ton. They allow towing (at least the one by me does) but their trucks do not have brake controllers. I think that will be your limiting variable ....

Discount car Rental from Usave.

Good luck - maybe someone else will have an idea for you. Laura

You'd probably still need a brake controller. If the trucks have the factory tow packages (as opposed to just having a hitch bolted on to them), you could just use a Prodigy with the direct plug-in cable to go into the plug beneath the dash. Just buy a cable for a Ford, Dodge, and GM and use the one needed...
