U-haul is doing a favor to Explorer owners.

I don't know about their trailers but I can confirm that their box trucks are junk.

One time I was renting a small box truck to pick up a mattress. The first U-Haul truck sounded like the engine was dying 100 yards up the road from the rental place. I turned around and took it back. When I got the second truck, it started raining. Five miles up the road, I just got a bad feeling inside so I pulled over and looked in the back. There was a hole in the floor that was letting lots of water from the road to penetrate. Back to the rental store. The third truck looked junky but was able to do the job. The interstate highway driving was scary because the top speed of the truck was 65 mph.

The rental place advertised new trucks but all 3 trucks I drove looked about 20 years old and bought from a junk yard.
