Need Some Info From Mobile Alabama Area

Does anyone know of a good long-distance towing service (for 5th wheels) out of the Mobile Alabama area?

A recently widowed lady from Texas had an accident in Mobile, Alabama while towing her 5th wheel to Florida. The RV is fine, but the truck was badly damaged (bed and hitch bent) so she's unable to tow it on home!

The RV is currently in a lot in Mobile and she is needing to hire someone to tow it from Mobile to Dallas, Texas area.

If you can recommend anyone to do this, please post a name and contact number so we can get this lady's 5th wheel back home to her!

I don't know anybody around here, but have you tried uShip.com? That's what they do.

Sandy, uShip.com is kind of a broker/eBay service entity. If you have something...anything...that you want taken from point A to point B, they have drivers all around the country that let them know when they'll be someplace and what they can haul.

In your case, a duelly with gooseneck base, or a lowboy flatbed behind a semi if she doesn't want it hauled (she'd have to know the trailer's height, in that case). Your friend would post the ad and then wait for bids to come in. Pick one and she's on her way.

It would be fine if she does that ASAP and give the date windows for hauling. The more lead time, the better. Anybody can contract with uShip, so she gets to choose the more expensive National movers, or might hook up with a cowboy that just delivered a horse trailer and is dead-heading back to Texas. Those guys might do it for just a bit more than gas money.
