You can tow with a U Haul-no problem. But they only have a 2" ball.

Yup, U Haul will let you tow. A buddy of mine towed his Donzi 26ZX to Maine from Ft Lauderdale last spring with one.

Where do you need to tow it to? maybe someone traveling that way could help you with that instead.

I rented a U-haul pickup a while back and it had a 2" receiver hitch on it. It also had a V-6 engine, so that's some thing else to consider.

OK, call Call Wayne Akers rentals, they are about 30 minutes north of you off 10ave North in Lake Worth.

Their address is actually: 1900 10th ave North, 561-582-4449

You can rent a F-250 Diesel 4X4 for about $99/day or a F-350 Crew Cab Dually for about $110/day Either will pull 11,000 lbs +

No, I don't work for them, I tried to find a rental dually for a long time to take my Powerplay to the keys for a weekend. All their vehicles are late model.
