    I was very hesitant to do it, but I was traded a trailer for the cucv and cash. So I couldn't bring a trailer to haul the truck back. I tried equipment rental places, but none of them wanted to do a one way. I googled it and found pics of long bed k20s and k30s on them so I knew it would fit. One guy said he hauled and excursion on one

    225 miles down the twisties of I5 from Southern Oregon to home. I took it slow at first, but after a while I just cruised, it wasn't really that bad at all. I was mostly worried about the tires, so I tried to keep it around 60, every time we stopped, they were hot, but I could just hold my hand on them.

    I'd do it again if I had to, but I'd rather bring a proper trailer if at all possible.

    Oh and yes, I used my own tie downs.

        but what did you tell the website you were hauling on it?
        Penguins can't fly, I can't fly, therefore I am a penguin.

          Pae, I'd be weary of flat towing an unknown rig 4 hours. Tires, wheel bearings, ect.

            It traveled the same distance ?

              Ya, I guess so, it made it. The nice thing about uhaul is if you have an issue, you just call them and they come fix it.

                Can relate, checking the bearings on the m1008 would have taken tools and time, and labor.

                    I did the same last month with a Sprinter on a tow dolly. I wanted to get the full trailer for its surge brakes as it was only a 144" wb model, but I feared the weight of the UHaul trailer plus the Sprinter would be too much for the 98 Dodge 1500's transmission. In retrospect, I should have done the trailer, as I blew the brake booster on the way home and had to finish the last 2 hours of the trip without power braking.

                    Anyway, somewhere around St. Louis, the right taillight fell out of the fender on the interstate. I didn't see it until I hit the hotel that night. I thought about calling to get it fixed, but I didn't want them to see a Sprinter on the dolly instead of the Civic that they thought was on there.

                    I called a couple times when I returned home and informed them over the phone. They said its no problem, just turn it in and there's no charge if a light fell out. The dolly is still sitting at the self-storage 2 blocks from my house without a right taillight.
                    Mrs CSR said I was good, or something.

                      i put a 69 f250 with a huge slide in camper on one. hauled it from Irvine to Ramona at no more than 35mph. it was fishtailing bad any faster than that. I really wanted that F250.
