If you want to improve your Chevy or GMC truck, there is a wide
variety of GMC and Chevy towing equipment — from brake controllers to hitches. A
number of accessories can improve performance and capability. These are just
some of the many accessories you should consider getting if you need to tow and
haul in the future.
Some of the most popular equipment includes brake controllers and hitches. A brake controller mounts to the dash area and can delay or moderate the trailer’s electrical braking system. Gale Banks Engineering offers a popular Brake Tuner device, while Tekonsha® has a much more affordable brake controller.
In terms of hitches, there are many options to choose from. Go
with something that is durable, flexible, and stays connected to the chassis.
CURT trailer hitches are among the top on the market, including the Curt Double
Lock hitches. Go Rhino® and Trimax™ hitches come in handy as well, but we
strongly encourage using Chevy or GMC hitches.
If you need fifth-wheel accessories, CURT and B&W offer
great bang for your buck with high-quality fifth-wheel accessories. For
instance, the A25 Fifth Wheel Hitch with a GM Puck System costs around $1200,
but it will allow you to tow heavy loads like campers.
