    Default Seattle to Dallas in a Uhual

    Can anyone tell me what the trip from Seattle to Dallas in a 17ft uhual (towing a car) would be like as far as time. I have a route planned (Boise, Salt Lake, Denver, KC etc) but am wondering how much mountain time I will have. I will also be following a 26 ft uhaul of my brothers.

    That route will involve crossing the Cascades and Rocky mountain ranges and to be safe you need to assume that your best average speed in the mountain portions will be 50 mph. So the total driving time will be in the neighborhood of 40 hours for this 2200 mile journey. You will be speed up a little bit once you reach the eastern slope of the Rockies (east of Denver) but even then you won't be able to average much faster than 54 mph (legally).
