Default quest to have best towing experience.

Looks Im always in quests to do something.... LOL
Im planning on towing my hobbies. One is a 75 Classic Mini that regulary goes to Car Shows and the such, and a Track Toy, a 2013 MINI GP. Already found at etrailer a hitch receiver, but there are so many options. What do you have installed in your vans as hitch receivers? Lights? Brakes?

Here are links to the parts that I bought for our van, and I've been happy with everything listed. However I have a 2016 extended 3500, so I'm not sure how much commonality there is between our vans.

To be honest, about 90% of it was from an email I put together for a friend of mine who has a 2015 express. He was asking what I bought for my towing setup, and I was able to copy/paste most of the info from that email. Hopefully it will help others, too.

I'm not sure if all of those links have the best prices, since prices change all the time, but it's a starting point.

If you'll need a weight distributing hitch for your towing setup, I've been happy my Equal-i-zer hitch (despite it being a little noisy), but the Andersen 3350 looks intriguing. (I talked a little about them here: https://chevroletforum.com/forum/exp...o-94512/page2/)

I have the 1 ton van model and pull a 7500 lbs 28ft travel trailer with no issues

mine came with factory hitch and wiring

have the blue ox hitch set up and use the tekonsha prodigy RF wireless brake controller

have been using both on various sets ups for years and they work very well
