Does anyone know of a rental company that would rent a truck to tow a 5th wheel? We are traveling to an event in June in OR. Almost all hotels are booked due to the Olympic trials at the same time. We need to take both our trailers but only have 1 truck. Too far to do a double trip which I just did this last weekend (closer to home). Any thoughts on national rentals or where to look? One trailer is a 5th wheel and one is a gooseneck.

Thanks

They have dolly's that you pull with a truck or SUV.
These dolly's can pull a 5th wheel or Gooseneck.

You might try one of these.

Was at an intersection and a pick up went thru with this dolly with a 5th wheel on it. So I looked them up.
What they won't think of next.

Interesting solution for a problem I didn't know existed. Kind of cool, now you can tow a heavier trailer or a 5th wheel from a lifted truck, etc. But at $10K, not a solution for my situation. I'm looking to spend a couple hundred bucks to rent a truck, not buy another truck...

Might be a good solution for that guy with a 3/4 ton truck that wants to pull a 30K lb trailer but doesn't want to buy a dually.

Weight limit of trailer - 6000 lbs - hitch only, no gooseneck or 5th wheel.
