I have never seen any place rent 3/4 or 1 ton trucks set up with a 5er hitch. Do you have a friend that will loan you a truck.

You would probably find it easier to rent either a Class C or Class A motor home. When you get to where you want to go you can rent a car to get around the local area.

Welcome to the forum!

As already mentioned, it will probably be very difficult to find a way to rent a fiver and properly equiped truck. I imagine that anything is possible from a private party but that brings it's own set of problems.

If you'd like to share more about how you want to use the rig we might have some folks with creative rental ideas.

Best of luck...

in claremore, OK has Travel Trailers for rent, but not 5ers. You'd still have to come up with a truck and hitch.

The rental trucks around here have cables through the hitch so they can't be used and I've never seen a PU with a 5th wheel hitch for rent.
