Question Decent places to get trailer hitches installed?

Alright, so most of you know by now that I'm leaving for Iowa soon (about 10 days from now). Staying til next April or May.
Well... I've been wondering how to get my stuff out there. I think I'll have too much for just my car. In fact I know I will. Not bringing anything big really, just don't have a lot of room in that little sedan 'o' mine.

Option #1 was to rent a van/truck, have my friend drive me to PA where I meet my girlfriend at her parents' place (where she'll be while on break from school in IA). He'd then have to take a bus home though, which I hate to make him do.
Option #2 I guess would be to rent a trailer, though for that... I need a hitch! Duh.

Won't need a big trailer. Probably just one of those small U-Haul jobbies, single axle. Just big enough for some big boxes and a disassembled computer desk. What do you think would be my best option, one of those Draw-Tite jobbies? U-Haul sells those right? I can check their website for a price I guess...

So it'll be my first towing experience. And I'll have a newly-installed suspension as well. Gonna be fun.

So.... talk to me!

How much are they Bill? See that sounds good to me... if I bought one from U-Haul I'm not so sure I'd trust 'em to put it on there. Those bastids scare me.

I'll be back there. I'm gonna call and sched. an oil change for next week. That way I can hang with you guys again one more time before I leave.

Does the Mobil station do good alignments? I'm either gonna go there or up to Concord Tire when I'm in town up there on Monday sometime, after the suspension goes on.

Jeff,

If I had your number, I don't anymore... Sorry man. I'll click your Email tab and send you a message though. I'm going out only for a few months, to live with my girlfriend while I'm out of a job. Misery loves company.

Mike,

Thanks. I may or may not actually need one, now. Talked with a friend of mine and he may be helping me to cart things out, in his truck. I'll be in Exeter for my last oil change before the drive west though (Tri-City can do without me this once). That should be next week sometime. So we can talk about the hitches then.
If the price isn't too much, and they're easily attach-/removeable, I wonder if I should take one anyway (I will have to move back without assistance next Spring...).

As for other stuff to sell me... There are things I want, but they'll have to wait. I'll end up buying a front lip spoiler from you next year, along with a big brake kit. I think that's all, from your shop.
