Default Towing with a Liberty

Ideas

So i have an 800+ mile trip coming up, thought it (my super sweet suzuki Samurai) was going to get shipped down. It's not looking too good.

So i have a Tow Bar......

U-haul will rent me a Dolly or a Trailer.


Ideas, I would probably do it with the trailer but i think that might be asking for death.

Is a Dolly that much better than a tow bar???

trailer would be the way to go just in case you wad up to zook. but that would be sketchy behind a liberty unless you could find a lightweight aluminum one.
