I haven't used my old tow bar in 3+ years. Prior to buying a new trailer, it was my go to method, along with a set of magnetic tow lights, for moving a project or parts truck home or across country.

There are occasions where vehicles had issues preventing me from using this setup so I would grab a uhaul trailer trailer or dollie but I never liked wasting money on rentals.

Yeah did that for years and a few years ago I got a dolly with brakes and big and wide enough for a full size truck on 40" tires.
I even pulled a medium duty ford van cutaway.
It just takes more careful driving.
25 years ago I towed my van with my brothers k5 using a tow rope for 120 miles.
And 15 years ago I towed a jeep wagoneer 50 miles that way. That is scary but you do what you gotta do
