Scott, when I moved from Dallas to Spokane 8 years ago I rented a large U 
Haul type truck. My TX472 fitted inside it and the truck was full of shop 
equipment, antennas, and much more. It was a diesel and the trucking company 
with the best price was not U Haul. I have heard of people using a boat 
trailer for the job. 73, Dan, N5AR
