Truck with 5th wheel hitch to rent in Florida??

Hi. We are considering acquiring a 5th wheel trailer in Florida this winter and leaving it there in storage when we are not using it. We would need to rent a truck with a 5th wheel hitch semi-annually to move it from storage to the rv site and vice-versa.
We will be in the Homosassa area about an hour north of Tampa so any supplier in Tampa would also work for a one day rental.
Prior to making the change we need to understand how easy/difficult it may be to rent a suitable truck for a day every 6 months.
Thanks for any leads you can provide.

Not sure if you will be able to rent a pickup truck with 5 wheel as I am not aware of anyone who would set up a truck like that.

It is probably easier to find someone in the RV park with a truck who will help you out for fuel costs or go to a truck rental place and rent a single axle Medium Duty Over the Road unit (Penske).

Most RV Dealers have men and trucks to move trailers around. Many of the men have their own trucks, are insured and will move trailers as a side business. Ask about it as you are looking for your new/used 5th wheel from a dealer. We had our first one that way before we had bought the proper truck to begin traveling.

I agree, in Homosassa there is a dealer by the Walmart on 19.
We have a 5th and winter at Carefree on Fishbowl. But we only stay there in January to April.
