You can move the vehicle a foot or two back or forward and affect tongue weight that way-if you have any rear squat.

I used one a month ago to haul the wife's Gl450 home when it broke down 75 miles away. 5400 lbs and it wasn't bad at all with my 1500.
It wasn't my first time using one, but if I was going to do it often, I'd be tempted to throw a set of airbags on.

Around here, the U-Haul dealers are picky about how much weight the hauled vehicle weighs and what the tow vehicle is. They would not allow a 5.4 liter 1999 F**d F-150 pull their two axle trailer with a 4000 pound 1970 Chevy El Camino on it. I had to get it flat bedded to where the EC got painted.

Your mistake was telling them what you were hauling, lol. I told them I was picking up a mustang, and I bought all the insurance.
