    Since I was bored at work I decided to check the U-Haul rates for you and for me in anticipation of a move in the spring or summer.
    FYI: Uhaul from Boston to chicago for a flatbed style trailer is $540..tow dolly is $240..
    Tell him to drive is there and take a bus back and save some cash

    Ya, I was just goign to reply saying your Blazer is bigger than what they recommend using on their trailers.... We did tow a 1/2 ton Short Bed on one once, it just barely fit...

    I would say your best bet is to drive it back. Have your bro do the work and buy him some beer!(or give him $)... Much cheaper... You may be able to find an auto transportor to haul it for ya, but then again, that wont be cheap either.....

    Thought about a used trailer, then sell it later on?
    Wouldn't be any more deadly than U-Haul's equipment. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    But what the hell was the point of the Integra if you were gonna bring the Blazer anyway? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    your truck probably won't fit the u haul trailer if it has 35's on it.

    check the width of the trailer on the website and then measure your truck. i was going to tow mine to cali on a u haul trailer but the truck just won[t fit on there. if i drop back to stock wheels and smaller tires it would fit though. just don't tell them what your are putting on the trailer. according to them the trailer is only good up to a 3600# car or so.
