I’m moving across the country (approximately 1,200 miles or so) and am looking for the cheapest option to move my stuff. I’m getting rid of almost all my furniture, but at the end of the day there are some things I will have to take with me. It looks to me like the cheapest option might be to get a hitch and rent a small trailer from UHaul.
I have a 2008 Nissan Altima. The UHaul site says I could tow up to a 6’x12’ trailer, but I just don’t know if that’s actually possible. I’ve been reading that Altimas can tow up to 1,000 pounds, and I’m guessing that even the smallest trailer will put me over the weight limit.
Will I be able to cash in on the savings of renting a trailer, or is my car not built for something like that?
