Question Best towing setup?

Just purchased a new 27BHS, and can't wait to get it home. Could use a little advice however...

I currently have a 2002 Surburban as my tow vehicle. Do I need to add a sway bar or any special accessories to help tow the camper? Also, any recommendations on brake controllers (brands, models, etc.)? Appreciate the help.

Prodigy brake controllers are generally considered to be pretty good and you might want to add a transmission cooler if the 'burb is not already equipped with one.

I agree Prodigy is a very good controller.

I've got the Jordan Ultima brake controller in my rig though. The new models however aren't slated for shelves until the fall.

Those are what I have and I love my setup. I purchased the equalizer from rvwholesalers and the prodigy off of ebay.
