It comes with stabilizer bars that connect to the camper.

Does my vehicle have a "tranny cooler"? I know it has the tow/haul mode on the gear selector, which I plan on using.

I plan on being very selective with the amount of gear I bring, mostly just clothing and food. There will be three adults (including me) as well as 4 children in the car (1 infant, 1 toddler, an 8 year old and a 6 year old). The adults weigh no more than 150-170lbs each.

I hope the picture that I attached shows.

Looking at the pic you provided you can do yourself a great favor and get your WDH set up right. TV and TT both should be 'level' in this pic they aren't.. Here's a pic of my 2005 burb and 7600 lb trlr
