How hard is it to drive with a hitch?

I was asked to help a friend move. I'd be driving a small two door hatchback. Attached would be a U-Haul U-Box hitched on to the back (See here for details). I have never driven anything with a hitch on the back. I would need to drive it 4 times, each time it would be about 15 miles or so. It would help save a lot of money if i could do this. How hard is it to drive with something big hitched behind? Should I help out? Any thoughts, or tips on the situation would be very appreciated.

What to do between Toronto and Boston?

Please suggest places to see, things to do, places to stop/stay overnight, and routes to take for a five day car trip between Toronto and Boston? It should only be about 10 hours of direct driving, so plenty of time to stop and visit. Are there any really cool things I've never heard of and shouldn't miss? (Niagara Falls and Montreal are possibilities, but I've already heard of them :) Thank you!
