Tow our TT to New Mexico - DDDreamers - 02-18-2019

Looking for someone with a worthy vehicle to tow our functioning 5000# TT from Fairplay CO to Truth or Consequences NM. Our SUV isn't happy enough to tow right now, and we have a workamp position to start soon.
Enterprise Truck Rental is making us jump through too many hoops to rent from them.
Will pay.

Did you try UHaul?

Otherwise, you will have no problems finding a few people on Craig's List that do this sort of thing for extra cash.

Also try uship

Both professional and freelancers can bid. I used to transport pets and cargo driving back and forth cross country

@Van-Tramp yes i tried uhaul. They won't do that distance with a pickup, and they don't have brake controllers.

Craigslist is some thing i am tracking next.

@cyndi yes i have a proposal in uship now. Just don't have enough funds in checking acct until later in week. They need full prepay upon bid acceptance, apparently, and bids disappear quickly. Frustrating. Gonna keep on there, though.

I used uship some years ago with good results.

This is not as much of a long shot as you may think...

Go to your nearest truck stop and make about twenty copies with a cell number on it.

"NEED 22 foot 5,000 pound camper trailer brought from here to ______ NM. Cash money."

You might be shocked how many drop-deck drivers want that cash...and could put that sucker on a flatbed designed for huge Caterpillar bulldozers. Bobtail guys often have hitches too.
A pro who drives a big truck, when taking everything into account...is likely your BEST bet for getting it there undamaged and on time. Especially a driver looking to make a little side cash with a flatbed. Your tires would never touch the ground...your brakes would never be touched.

Great idea Gumbee. I have to store that in my mind somewhere and hopefully not forget that should I ever need to use it.

@JDGumbee that is a great idea. I should have thought about that a couple weeks ago, seeing as I've intimately known a couple truckers in my life, lol.
If this Uhaul rental doesn't pan out on Saturday, i may do just that. Unsure how we will temp install brake controller in rental.

@cammalu good to know. We have been getting decent bids. Problem has been accepting said bids, since all money has to be in checking acct just to even accept the bid before it vanishes. Difficult when we aren't getting paid til Friday. Hand to mouth living sucks in this society.
