Lightbulb Where to rent a trailer hitch from?

I will be moving 10+ hours away and I need a medium size trailer to hitch on the back of my vehicle. I am having trouble finding one that is not too small, but not too big.

If Penske had smaller trailers, I would definitely go with them. But, unfortunately they only offer HUGE 48+ foot "dry freight van trailers".

U-Haul would be my second option, but they only offer 6' x 12' trailers, which is not big enough. (they say it only fit 1-2 rooms and I need 3-4 rooms).

Recommendations please~

Do you mean a bumper hitch?

Walmart has 3 way hitches for less than 50 bucks. It has three different sized balls. So does Tractor Supply.

No, I meant to say on the title "Where to rent a trailer to hitch from?" I am looking to rent a medium size trailer. I already have the hitch.

Did you try budget? They are often less expensive than Uhaul, depending on the destination. Last time we needed a trailer, we just bought one and resold it.

Budget doesn't offer trailers, just actual moving trucks... I guess I'll just have to go with the 6'x12' trailer from U-Haul and just try to cram everything in.
