Hi,

Having towed a caravan in the UK for 25 years, I quite like the idea of doing do in the US next august for a couple of weeks around lake Michigan. I've done the RV and found it quite come training when going into towns. Does anyone know of any companies who hire vehicle/trailer combo's around Chicago or even just the tow vehicle so I could sort out the trailer myself?
Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Did you simply contact U-Haul in the Chicago area and see what they will allow you to tow with one of their rental vans for example. I know they allow towing with their larger trucks, but have never towed with their small rental vehicles.

I suspect that is a pricey way to go however. Have you considered renting a small motor home (can't recall what you call them i the UK) from an agency like Cruise America? There are many different agencies that do that.
