I used Uhaul dolly's for over 6000 miles towing a Saab behind a 37 footer. I could load/unload in minutes. Towed well, lights worked. Used Brake Buddy as aux brake system. Check the straps at every stop. Had one dolly that had a tweaked axle, i think, as it wore out inside edge of a set of tires in just a few hundred miles. Uhaul changed tires at a campground, no problem.

at my hobby store we also are a dealer for U-Haul and it can be done .just that it is not in data base so just go there and if they have one you should be able to rent it...program does require them to put in the explanation box what the reason is..i have done it many times in many odd situations...now there are a lot of deales that have no clue on how to things so they may not..jeff

I guess I picked the wrong U-haul, but they were a big one. Anyway we rented a car one way and it worked out, but thanks for the tip, will remember it if we have to go somewhere before we get out car set up.

fighterpilot, I use a uhaul car trailer to tow my jeep behind one of their trucks when I'm doing transfer movements for them and need a vehicle to get home with. The local unit here has rented out car haulers to RV units as I helped hook one up for a couple and then helped load their broken dolly across the front so they could get back to Manitoba.
The dealerships may have newbs on their computers and that may be where your problem lays.
