I am planning a relocation from the Los Angeles area to Denver, CO in mid-February. I will be solo driving a 20’ rental truck and towing a flatbed car transport with my car on it. I don’t have much experience driving trucks and no experience towing, so this will be an adventure. I plan on making sure the truck comes with chains and will acquaint myself with how to install them beforehand. Will the car trailer need chains as well? What route would be recommended?
If I was just in my SUV I’d go with the direct I70 route, but I’m very hesitant to do so in an unfamiliar truck with trailer in winter. Would I40 to I25 be safer? I80 to the North? Of course, I'll be checking and monitoring weather forecasts and conditions closely as the trip approaches and will adjust my plans accordingly.
Thanks in advance!
