Check around you might be able to find one to rent.


I assume you are talking about the Safety Hitch - you need to replace your standard hitch with a 3 receiver hitch - wouldn't be easy to rent.

I have never seen a pickup from a commercial rental company that was equipped for fifth wheel of gooseneck. Bumper pull, sure, but not 5ers.

You might check with dealers or mobile RV repair guys and see if they know somebody who could provide private-party help.

Hertz rents F350s with the 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package. You will have to call them early and have them find one for you.

Thanks - I will have to call them, I only see 1/2 ton trucks on their website. Looks like about $1000 per week.

Just pay someone with a 5th wheel or gooseneck. Hotshot or commercial hauler will do it. Or maybe a friend can do you a favor and you can help them out.

I checked the Enterprise website. Wow, I was surprised. Many years ago I searched for one in Texas with no luck.

If you have a family, a travel trailer, and only a few weeks a year (3 to 6), why pay $30K or more for a pickup when you can rent one trouble-free for $375 a week?

New truck every trip, and for the rental versus ownership you could rent for years to come and not worry about new tires, maintenance and depreciation. Practically a new truck every trip.

I just peeked at Enterprise website as well and only saw bumper pull hitch towing equipment ... didn't see anything for 5th wheel or gooseneck. Did I miss it?

You will probably have to call the local office. I've got a Buddy that when his truck got hit, Enterprise or Hertz supplied him an F-250 with a gooseneck hitch.
