yes, rent a truck. I prefer Penske trucks to U-XXXX. They seem better shape and lower cost total. Maybe different by region.
I hauled my QB+ (7) fuse, wings, empennage a few hundred miles in a 25' truck. The wings were transported with leading edge down, HS, VS, Elevator was all flat but could be LE down too. Pillows, 4" of blankets, old mattresses, 4" foam, all work for truck floor interface. They were held to allow side to side movement but secure so they would not come loose. Bottoms packed to prevent walking on the floor in any direction. They tend to hop around. There are latch rails along the sides of the truck. I used 2X4's and deck screws to the floor unless other boxes properly prevented lateral, axial movement. Wings against the wall works, If wrapping with blankets, tape the blankets to the wings. Watch the furniture packers, that is how they do it.
With what you have, you should have no trouble.
I have heard Tony Partain (Bend, Oregon) has special trailers and has hauled many RVs with success. Not perfect apparently, but that is what insurance is for. I don't know if he is still in the business, but maybe connecting on a backhaul uptake coast might be cheaper than self moving.
EDIT: Golly, I see the distance is short. Definitely rent, much cheaper, get TONS of blankets, several (careful) helpers.

cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge
is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind.”
