Contrary to the idea that a tow package is nothing more than a trailer hitch, there are many valuable components that make a strong, good and reliable tow package. The hitch is the core of the package in the form of receiver, gooseneck or 5th wheel hitch all of which will be bolted directly to frame members.
A tow package also includes wiring that allows the trailer to be connected to the lighting system of the automobile or truck. This wiring will consist of a connector located close to the hitch and will feed electricity to the brake lights, turn signals, and license plate light. In some cases, this connector may also include circuits that power a trailer’s braking system, taking much stress off the vehicle doing the towing. This is known as a brake controller and is generally used in heavy towing applications. Many heavy-duty tow package applications will include upgrades to the suspension and brakes of the tow vehicle. Suspension upgrades can include heavier springs and more robust shocks that help the tow vehicle control heavy loads.
