Probably under 500lbs plus the extra short shaft motor that I'll put inside the truck.

Yeah, Enterprise is big into the truck/SUV rental but do they rent one way? That's the problem with Uhaul-they're pickups are local only.

Yes they have a hitch and all ready to tow. They also have the 7pin round plug so if your trailer is 4 wire flat you'll need the adapter.

Just know when to pay someone to get the job done. Sorry man, just not like you. Don't enjoy taking my motors apart every weekend and having them break while you're running on a hose in the driveway
