I wish. they rent them, a lot do but they state they are not for towing anything but their trailers. Same deal with home depot. Looks like the answer is SOL


Not so. In Canada there are 2 different Enterprise franchises, one is ‘trucks’ only all the pickups have hitches and are completely legit for towing anything, RV, car carrier, whatever.

We do it all the time, very much a bargain.

Here is a quote from Discount Car & Truck Rental's website. It insinuates that towing is allowed. Give them a call and see what restrictions there may be.

"We carry rental trucks for all your personal needs whether you are moving your home, carrying materials for home renovations, towing a boat, or starting university or college. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff can help you choose the best personal truck rental to meet your project’s objectives."

I once looked for the same and couldn't find anything. Nice to see that Enterprise will allow it.

Oh, for anyone renting, I always rent the cheapest car there is online. Then, when I get to the counter (airports) I ask if they have any trucks and yes they do and they don't usually rent out well. I then offer 10 bucks more a day if I can have a Ram 1500 (like mine). I've almost always gotten one for about 40 bucks a day less than the list price on one. It's nice driving what you have at home, and I get to see the different variants of my truck. The V6 pentastars 4WD or 2WD get amazing mileage compared to my 5.7 hemi and 3.92 gears.
