I need to help my GF get her car from the USA, and we had planned to put it on a u-haul and just tow it back as it does not have registration or plates right now. The problem is I think I might be asking too much of the truck, especially the breaks. Here are the rough numbers:
Which is under the 6500lbs limit but I have a lifted truck with all the skid plates and a bunch of other weight, as well as this would be with a non factory reciever (All-Pro bumper) and there is all the gear to be away for 6 days and three people in the truck...We need to go from Spokane WA to Calgary AB which is 426miles or 685 kilometers, with some moutain passes.
Will I be able to safely do this tow....I dont want to try and save a few bucks if it is safer to drive both and just get a transport pass to make it leagal to drive the other car. Also would the trailer choice make a difference, what I mean is a dolly verse a both wheels off the ground trailer.
any help/advice/guidance would be great, been researching all night and its starting to sit more uneasy with me than when I first thought of the idea.
