New Rockwood A128S owner in Ontario, Canada

Hi folks,

I have just bought a used 2016 Rockwood A128S A-frame trailer.

I'm new to trailer ownership, and certainly new to this group.

My first very important question:

I haven't picked up the trailer yet. I have to get a hitch (ordered) and wiring harness installed on my 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan.

I know the trailer uses a 7-pin blade connector, but I'm not sure what I need on my van?

Do I need a brake controller, or just the correct wiring?

If anyone is able to recommend a specific wiring harness product I would be very grateful.

Andrew

Sounds like your minivan doesn't have the factory tow package. You will need the brake controller since the trailer has electric brakes.
You probably should duplicate the factory tow package, including trans cooler.
