Tow mirrors are nice. Wouldn't own a truck without them.

Next step will be ordering a Rockwood minilite 2503S in January for delivery in March-April. Thanks for all the feedback.
you won't go wrong with the tow package. Those mirrors make a huge difference and when you aren't using them they fold in 90 degree.

Don't waste your money on airbags. Get a weight distributing/ anti sway hitch. Being inexperienced at travel trailer towing I set up my new Silverado with air bags figuring that would be all I needed. Found out after I bought my 2702 Rockwood that I needed the hitch because the air bags did nothing to stop sway. Went with an Equalizer which makes towing a pleasure instead of torture. The air lift bags are nice to have but @ $400 I doubt I would have bought them if I knew.
