EXACTLY what I was thinking. They all rent car trailers. Get one and it will have the correct size ball, then use the Suburban to tow the boat..

Sorry rags did not see that the truck and car were headed to different places. Get the smaller receiver then and you will be fine. Top posted a ling and CHampion is great to deal with.

Oh god yea, I thought you were moving it around in the driveway or in the marina. If your going cross country dont even consider what I said. Ive occationally had to borrow a 4 wheel drive truck to get mine up the ramp since I only have 2 wheel drive. The 2" ball they sometimes had worked for that. Then Id hook my truck up with the right equipment and go down the road.

My only complaint about Champion is shipping timeframes. Its always later that what you pay for. You may pay for quick delivery, but it takes them a couple days to fill the order.... just FYI.

I paid for overnight once. It took them 3 days to fill it; 4 to get it. Pissed me off, and pushed back my first splash of season a week. I did get my shipping money back, but that's not the point.
