Default Uhaul Trailers

Hey Guys. I'm moving from Louisiana to Washington State. Was wondering if anyone pulled a 5x8 or 6x12 Uhaul Trailer? How well do they travel? Any issues with the 6x12? I know it has its own brakes. My issue is the largest thing I have to move is a king size mattress. And I'm not sure how the 6x12 trailer, does being pulled with a F150? I'll admit I am a rookie when it comes to pulling/Hauling. The larger trailer is a little intimidating. As soon as a 5x8 trailer is available in my town, to go look at. I'll have to pull some measurements too see if a king will fit. Uhaul Advertises a queen will fit. Any experience that any one may have had with these trailers would be appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

Your truck will pull the 6x12 like it's not even back there. I believe the Uhaul trailers all have surge brakes... they aren't the most amazing thing to tow with, but they serve the purpose.

Cool, about 20 min from me. Don't be too startled by the rampant homeless and drug RV's.

Bigger trailers in this category are actually a little easier at times, backing mainly.

I pulled a 5x8 from Alaska to Missouri behind a 2011 VW Jetta TDI. Pretty sure you won't even feel it behind the F150.

Also, the 5x8 barely (by an inch or two) fit a queen, you'll have to go the next size up.
