Not a real fishing question, but this is where folks in the know will read. I am going to be at Fishapalooza on the Upper Kenai in late Sept. I am bringing up my 14' raft and had reserved a full size truck rental and also rented a flat bed trailer from a forum member here. I contact Enterprise today and find out that no hitches are on the vehicles so I can't use a trailer of any kind. Glad I finally thought to call and ask as I had just assumed the truck had a class III. Now I need a secondary choice.
One option is to strap the raft on top of the truck, but I worry about safely doing this on the highway. Granted, I am only going a few miles from the Russian River Campground to Sportsmans each day, then returning from Jims to the RRCG each afternoon. However, I don't want to be "that" tourist. I have this fear of my Sotar bouncing down the road and causing trouble, locals laughing, etc..
Second option, renting a truck camper in Anchorage and using that instead of the Enterprise F-150. Could sleep in it of course and leave the tent behind. Being that a bear ripped up my tent last year, an attractive option for sure. Just need to be sure the truck camper has a hitch of course. Which brings me to this question. Who should I contact about renting a truck camper in or near Anchorage. I have never rented a camper or RV before.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thought I had everything figured out. Seems not so much.
