I rented a car hauling trailer from U-Haul when I had to bring my disabled 
Astro van back to Colorado from Ill.  I rented it on the local rate and 
pulled it there and loaded up the van and headed home.  They have surge 
brakes and everything that you will need to load the vehicle.  U-Haul will 
tell you what vehicle they will allow you to use to pull the trailer.  I 
pulled mine with a non GM 3/4 ton pickup (beggars can't be choosers) and it 
worked OK.

Just my .02

51 Chevy 1/2 ton Deluxe 5 window
52 Burb
