Finally did the trailer hitch mod...
 
...by hooking something up to it :D It was my first time pulling something bigger than a lawn tractor/trailer combo. I couldn't believe how smooth the ride was with the trailer fully loaded with furniture, boxes, etc. Even acceleration and braking-wise, it was pretty easy to forget the trailer was back there. I forgot to check the gas mileage, so I won't know what kind of hit it took until next time I fill up. Of course in classic uhaul fashion, one of the trailer lights was out :)

Did you remain under 45mph?:lol:
I am thinking I am going to rent one of those next fall to help my daughter move into her apartment for her senior year of college. How does that work? do they charge by the day? how much is it approx?

I think the 3" would be too low. The 2" seemed to be about a 1/4" too high. uhaul sells a 2 1/4" drop bar.

As far as price, it was ~$41 for the day. We originally reserved it from 9:00am to 7pm, but we wound up running late. We called and they said we could drop it off anytime after hours at no extra charge. The price above included the insurance.
