well here i sit fixing to PCS from korea to texas which means moving life from NC to TX once i get back so i thought easiest way to get jeep and all my belongings would be a uhaul trailer hooked up right.... wrong apparently uhaul has some policy that if you have a soft top suv they will not allow you to hook up one of their trailers to your truck. ive been racking my brain tring to figure this one out cant for the life of me figure out why the few pound difference between my soft top or a hard top would make such a huge difference that i cant do it oh well off to the drawing board.

Totally confused wtf is up with uhaul??

Smaller wheelbase I guess. They won't let any trailer, or just the larger ones?

It's not the weight, they want something more than a tent between you and the trailer.

Probobly so, we all know that factory hardtop will stop most things ;)

So, borrow a buddies truck to pick up the trailer and then hook it up to your jeep once you are away from the place....

What a bunch of worryworts. I like Dawg's idea.

yea i thought about that but when youpick up the railer you "register" the trailer to the vechile so id be screwed once i got out to texas then i thought i could hook it up to my mud truck but the 6 miles to the gallon would kill my bank account driving the 1,500 miles out there im sure ill think of something i just thought it was crazy that they wouldnt allow a soft top SUV to pull a trailer even their smallest one i mean the boat i pull is bigger than the trailer i need to use

You might try talking to a different UHaul place, maybe they don't have that policy or don't enforce it. Maybe not as cheap, but what about renting a small truck and a car dolly to pull the Jeep behind the truck.

yea i looked into that though they want a kidney for the price i looked at budget and i can get a truck and dolly for pretty chep through them well just have to wait and see what happens i still have about three weeks stuck here so only time will tell

I tried to rent a trailer from them many years ago and they said I couldn't because I have a YJ.
Yet I have seen many SWB Jeeps pulling uhaul trailers since then.
