I wouldn't worry about the truck part too much. When I moved across  
the state in '95 I went to Ryder and the only truck they had was a  
big 23' TopKick. You wouldn't likely need anything that big, but that  
truck was actually pretty easy to drive. Of course it only went about  
70mph with my foot to the floor...

As others have said, the hard part will be loading and unloading the  
E10k. If you can get that part figured out, the driving should be a  
piece of cake.
