I'm helping my homegirl move from Michican to VA next month. I'm a little skittish about flying and I just dislike the airline industry in general.
So her idea is for me to fly to MI and we rent a moving truck and tow dolly to bring her stuff and her Ford Escort to VA.
I'd rather drive up there and but I have not found a rentable trailer that would let me tow her car AND carry the stuff she has. The car's reliability is questionable, so driving it down isn't an option.
We need to move;
-A queen size bed and boxspring
-2 large nightstands, 2 small ones
-A TV console thing
-Bunch of small boxes
The mattress and boxspring would fit in the bed of the Taco, but that'd take up the entire bed. Boxes can go in the Escort. Its the nightstands and TV console thats the problem.
Anyone know of a rentable trailer that will accomodate a car and some furniture? Or any creative ideas on hauling the mattress some other way than in the truck bed? I have the tow package on my Taco but no aftermarket trailer brake controller.
I already looked at UHaul's 6x12' enclosed trailer and utility trailers w/ a ramp, but I think the load rating isn't enough. The 6x12' enclosed is 2,480lbs and the 6x12 utiliy trailer is 2,110lbs. Specs say the car weighs 2,491lbs, plus the boxes and furniture, etc.
Someone please help me get out of flying
