I think a few here have rented trucks from Enterprise. I haven't had the need - yet - but may be something to explore.

You are looking at it the wrong way.... Buying a bigger boat gave me a reason to buy a new big ass diesel truck!!!!!

My family does have to eat Chris !

Enterprise only rents 1/2 ton, I know they are rated @ 9,200lbs but I don't want to chance it, I want a 3/4 at a minimum.

just by a high mileage flatbed work truck f350 or f450 and put the family in the sequoya.. they can be found relatively cheap and the lifespan is a lot longer than most people think, especially towin down the highway.

why dont you try lookin for an 5 to 6 year old diesel truck that will run a very long time, and look for a good deal on an older boat. Take the time to shop around, you will find a good deal.

the way I look at it........compared to the cost of a cottage....... where you still have to have a boat.......the cost of a boat is a picnic
