    Does anyone know where I can rent a vehicle to tow a 23' tt? The trailer weighs 3680lbs dry. I figure about 4500lbs ready to go. I misread my owners manual. I thought I could pull 5200lbs max. Now I notice it's 5200lbs gross combined weight which limits me to about 2500lbs. I could ask for my deposit on the TT back, but we're so looking forward to this. I haven't told my wife about the situation yet. We could pull a small pop-up with the Explorer, but if I could find a place I'd rather rent a 3/4 ton pickup.
    We live in Southeast Michigan. (Detroit area)

    Thanks! Chuck

    Finding a truck to rent thats rigged with brakes is going to be a challenge. I would not want to pull any 4500# without brakes. JMHO

    Check your local car dealers. Sometimes they rent trucks. Any truck with a tow package and and class III or IV trailer hitch should work. Enterprise may have what you need.
