Suggestions for set up

I am looking for ideas on what type of tow set up you might suggest. I will be towing a 2014 rockwood 2306 and I have a 2005 4x4 dodge dakota with a v8. It has a tow haul mode, but I am not sure if it has a "towing package". I am not sure what exact v8 engine it has in it and I am not sure how you tell. Do you suggest an anti sway bar, weight distribution hitch, or anything else? What type or brand do you suggest. Thanks for any help in advance!

you need to run your vin. A dealership or calling dodge can do this. Ask them if you have the towing package and make sure it as the transmission cooler, if you don't you need to install a transmission cooler. You can look at the. hitch to check its ratings. you will definitely want wdh. A wdh with integrated sway like Reese dual cam or equal-i-zer with 800 lb bars would o you well since that trailer is probably gonna pretty near max your truck out.
