Obviously if you have no issues no ones really going to know but if you do it can be a real PIA. Ended up using the wifes Suburban to tow just in case since the damage to my truck had been caused by the sled trailer jacknifing.
When you go to the Enterprise commercial site it says it is setup for towing, I believe you are speaking of the non commercial Enterprise division.

I think that the towing is ONLY to tow their trailers. In other words if you rent their box truck you can tow their car hauler for example. I am not aware of any of them that will allow you to tow your own trailer.

U-Haul is the only company that will allow you to tow anything besides company trailers. Done this several times and worked out well. I would suggest a diesel for the durabilty when you encounter the hills. As mentioned you need to find a welder for obvious reasons.

I found out the same thing. U-Haul is a little more expensive, since they charge by the mile if over the point to point distance, while some of the other truck rental companies are unlimited miles, like a rental car.
