I need to tow a 2005 F-250

I bought a new truck, F-250, and I want to tow my old F-250 back home after this job is over. Problem is, the normal rental places do not have a trailer that will support my truck! How can I tow my F-250??? 156" wheelbase, 4x4j, Oklahoma to Louisiana.. by the way...

You're either going to have buy a trailer, or a tow bar and flat tow it or hire a professional transporter to haul it for you, or pay someone to drive it.

The only safe way would be to get a flat bed. Flat towing with a tow bar is possible if you remove the rear drive shaft.
