    Morning all. can't believe the trouble I am having finding anyoine who will tow a Suburban for me. I tried to rent a trailer to do it myself and they claim a suburban can't trailer a suburban. Noone acts like they want to touch it.. anyone have a clue why?

    Sounds like some people that are in need of some reality ;-) Did anybody mention any reason that you couldn't tow a suburban with a suburban? I have done it several times myself. I would ask for some specific explanation as to what exactly the problem is.... that sounds pretty rediculas.

    they claim that the weight issue of the suburban along with the trailer weight itself makes it too much for the Suburban that is doing the pulling, therefore they will not even rent me a trailer to do the job so now I have to pay an absurd amount to have the thing towed once I buy it because it will not run without the fuel injector pump

    I don't believe that for a second, but as an alternative can you pull it on one of those front wheel trailers? that would virtually eliminate the trailer weight.

    That is what I would try also.

    Also talk to the shop where you are going to get the work done they might have a deal with company.

    Where is used to live there was a slogan that said Free Two to Allpro!

    I have had my car towed over 100 miles to less than $100 bucks just talked to the tow driver.

    Also do you have towing on your insurance or AAA?

    Well I tried to get a dolly (for the front wells but the distance between the wheel wells is only 5 1/2 ' and the Suburban has extra wide big tires so it won't fit. I am being charged 100.00 for 25 miles, probably the area I live in

    and no I do not have full coverage so I do not have towing or AAA, I will figure it out it just bothered me that the rental trailer company gave me a hard time

    Get 2 cheap tires and rims from a boneyard and it might fit and be less than the $100 even with the trailer rental ???

    Can you rent a tow bar? That will decrease even more weight, and solve the tire clearance issue.
