I recently tried to rent a U-Haul, the only moving truck in town. When I can, I plan on installing a hitch. I am not sure how large of a trailer I can pull in my Accord 283 miles up and down mountains in Arizona.

Bad time to use a grill block?

I could make a trailer tail or just install a cargo box.

The aluminum cargo rack from Harbor Freight is rated for 750 pounds, but the U-Haul hitch is only rated for 200 pounds tongue weight.
That box is just deep enough for one of my Army tough boxes. I once put 180 pounds in one and dragged it to the post office. I am pretty sure the one I have full of tools weighs more than that.

So, that does not seem very helpful.
