Hi. I am moving, and have to be out of here in two days. I've gone back and forth on whether to mail my belongings or tow a trailer. I've already cancelled the trailer once, but I have so much stuff that I don't want to leave behind that I rented one again. It is a 4 x 8 U-haul enclosed trailer, and I'm pulling it with a Ford F150 5.4 V8, so no problems on towing capability, however, big problems with my fear of towing. I'm looking for a route that is straight and flat. :) OK, as straight and flat as I can find. I have the added pleasure of bringing along a dog, cat and two birds in my truck with me, and other than them I'm driving alone (I'm a woman). I plan to sleep in the back of the truck, so am getting the AAA campground book and/or staying at pet-friendly hotels if I can't find a campground. I want to get there as fast as I can as the animals will probably be a problem.
I guess I'd like to know what others think the best route for a total chicken driver to take to get to Manchester, New Hampshire. Do you think campgrounds will be safe with me towing a U-Haul? How many days would it take to get there if I stay at the recommended 45 MPH recommended by U-Haul? Or should I just forget the trailer and mail everything and leave a lot of stuff behind in a storage unit that I will then have to pay to replace when I get to NH?
I know this is a little late for this post, but any help would be appreciated. I'm up at 3 in the morning because I'm so stressed out about "death by U-Haul" "advice" I've been receiving from friends.
Thanks in advance.
