    Hey guys any ideas on what is the best/cheapest way of towing a car from SA to HOU?

    I got a 2000 3.4 5speed but those u haul trailers are a beast and the taco wont tow the trailer and car.

    Any suggestions or ideas would be nice

    Thanks

    Look up adjustable tow bar. Mounts to the front of the car and hooks up to the hitch of your truck. Turning the car into a trailer. No need for getting a trailer!

    may possibly cause damage to the vehicle in tow. I prefer to just load the car on a trailer and go.

    sounds like a trailer is needed to get all 4 wheels off the ground

    Jeeps and such get pulled behind rv all the time with tow bars. Slap that thin in neutral and start towing. If anything you can ask tow truck company how much they charge. Unless you can talk the the tow truck driver himself. He might do it as a side job. Just make sure they have a big roll back truck.

    Also have transport company all over willing to deliver your truck to Houston.
