U-haul car haulers

Going to have to rent a car hauler to take a car from Texas to Pennsylvania....not my regular toad. Hitch is rated for 10K and car weighs 5K. Any concerns related to pulling a rental hauler?

I can't think of any. Just keep an eye on the tires.

They are heavier than a standard consumer grade trailer but certainly not close to your hitch limit. I used them for years with no issue. As Rick said, just check the tires, before you leave Uhaul and during your drive. You can check the temperature with your hand when you stop for fuel.
