I've got a trailer at my deer lease that I need moved a few hundred yards. The problem is that its a 5th wheel and I don't have a truck that can pull it and haven't been able to find anywhere that rents one.

Anyone know a place in the Houston area to rent a truck with a 5th wheel attachment. Anyone in the Groveton/Trinity area with a hitch that wouldn't mind coming to help out (of course you would be compensated).

Never done it with a 5th wheel, but have moved goosenecks before with the front end loader on a tractor. If you have access to one might work.

I have moved one around in my parking lot with a fork lift. I bet I could move one with my Bobcat.

Not as much room on a 5th wheel hitch as there is a goose, less room for error.

Check with a dealer in the area of your lease. I bet they have or know some retiree that can do it for the right amount of dollars.
