I have also had great luck with Ryder _commercial_ trucks (the white 
ones).  They also have them with E-track vs the loops that the consumer
trucks have.  The rates were very reasonable too.  You have to find a
Ryder commercial rental place though, it's a totally separate operation
from the consumer (yellow) places.  When I used them they did not have
any problems renting to an individual with a credit card.
