Don’t have a trailer hitch to hook up to the Teardrop Trailer? You have three options:
1. Borrow a vehicle with a hitch and electrical connector.
2. Rent a truck from U-Haul in Santa Rosa with a hitch and electrical connector.  (Truck rentals are typically about $19.95 a day plus mileage).
3.  Install a hitch and electrical hookup – we recommend Campway’s on Santa Rosa Avenue in Santa Rosa, CA 707-584-4433 or a Uhaul service center.
