Pick up/SUV rental fo long distance/out of state

I got a little gig towing a 20' boat from Los Angeles to Miami this week, but I don't have my Suburban any more so I have to rent a truck or SUV, any body knows a rental company that rents trucks I can take out of state and doesn't charge mileage and let me tow a boat? They pay me $2500 so it's worth the effort.

Tnx

Call up enterprise, and get an SUV. I think its only a few $$ a day for unlimited mileage.

Enterprise trucks have no hitch. They don't allow towing. You could put a ball on the bumper, but be sure to put a smooth spacer of some sort on first so you don't scratch the bumper pad.

$2500 plus fuel I hope?

Check Penske. Bigger truck, safer towing, diesel engine.

Includes gas, things are so slow for me at the moment I take any job. If I can make $1500 cash and a road trip, I'm happy. Visiting some friends in Houston and Galveston on the way back...
