They have a trailer but I can't have it

I need to move an apartment's worth of things from Seattle to Dallas, including a vehicle. A U-Haul 5'x8' trailer would be awesome but they don't rent to Ford Explorer drivers. I have a Ford Explorer. There don't appear to be any other trailer rental companies in the Seattle area. Are there any other options? Less than $500 would be great--the U-Haul trailer I can't have is $321--but I'm open to all ideas that are somewhere in the ballpark.

How much trouble would I get into if I take a friend's small truck over there to pick up the trailer but then attached it to my completely trailer ready (has a hitch) Explorer and I have my own insurance to cover the trailer and my stuff if something goes wrong?
