03 disco on a Uhaul transporter

I know they are heavy but anyone have any experience towing a discovery on a Uhaul car trailer?

U Haul trailer is rated at 5300

Don't take the kids with you. They will tell the truth to the U haul boys

Inspect the trailer before. I've gotten some real POS trailers from U-haul.

On the road headed north sitting in DC traffic. First trailer I got ,one of the tires had a big gash in it.
Second one looks brand new rated to 7500 pounds. Should pull the Volkswagen Golf easily.

There are two "car carriers" from Uhaul. Obviously get the one with the higher capacity it is something like 7500 or 8k.
