Need advice for trailer hitch for 1992 Toyota Pickup Sign In

I am moving and want to move my belongings in a trailer pulled by my 1992 Toyota pickup. It is a short bed, two wheel drive, weighs 4400 pounds, and is a four cylinder. I need to move about 500 cubic feet of stuff and want to try to do it in one trip. My pickup does not have a rear bumper. I know nothing about trailer hitches. Any advice on what type, brand, and places to buy a hitch that fits my truck would be appreciated. UHaul quoted me a price of I think $265 for a hitch installed. I can't remember if that included the wiring and ball. Thanks for any replies.

Locally - U-Haul is excellent with pre engineered hitches and ability to wire correctly if trailer wiring set up is known. Weight of trailer + load counts, not the square feet of your cargo,

That's not a bad deal for a class III hitch installed. Forget the bumper. You can't pull from there.

Let Uhaul do it at that price. I've let them install hitches on a few of my trucks and they were good quality with no trouble.
