Around here some of the large dealerships rent pickup trucks and vans for local day use. I have also seen pickups from some of the car rental firms on the roads. I have no idea what the terms and conditions are but a friend used a rented F-150 to haul one of those 1 yard cement trailers to his house.

I once tried renting a vehicle to move my TT. They let me back out once we realized the moving truck 1) didn't have a hitch and 2) had a welded 2" ball to the bumper.

So if you pursue this, visit the rental place first.

FYI: I ended up paying a tow truck company to haul it for me.

X3, Craigslist.org is free,brings sellers and buyers together, and really works. We sold our slide-in on CL for nearly what we paid for it. We sold our boat last year well above the NADA value. Just make sure your unit is detailed, post a lot of good pictures, and write a detailed ad. A full descriptive ad works wonders. There is no cost per word and people actually do read them. I have been told many times that the full description was the reason they came over a one line ad.

FYI - Most major rental companies state in the terms and conditions that their rentals ARE NOT to be used for towing.

A few years ago, I wanted to rent a truck to tow my new trailer home and no one would rent a truck, especially with me using a WDH.
