    I went about 65 miles. No problem. I also told them that I was putting a full size Chevy 4x4 on it and they insisted that it would fit. I suppose that it did, but 2 more inches of wheel base would have been trouble.

    I'm glad I saw this post, I am going weekend after easter to pick up a blazer from PA. I have been trying to figure out a trailer for it! How hard would it be to get a vehicle onto one of those trailers that has no engine/trans, could 4 people push it on? Thanx! :D

    Inspect the trailer well before you pick it up. If the tires look questionable or something isn't right make them find you another one. Uhaul stuff is well known for crappy maintanence & if something brakes on the road dealing with there customer service center will be a joy.

    The trailer will most likely not come with a spare tire so if the tires look questionable pass it and get another one.
