1. Lippert OneControl — Intelligent & Innovative Towing From Your Smartphone

With so many things to watch and monitor, towing can be stressful.

2. CURT Echo® — Manage Brake Output from Your Smartphone

Trailer braking is a very important part of towing. Traditionally, a wired proportional or time-delay brake controller is used to control the brake output of your trailer, reducing the strain on your truck brakes and helping the trailer to come to a prompt and safe stop.

Wired brake controllers are typically mounted under the dash of your truck and adjustments and changes must be made to the controller itself.

The Echo under-dash trailer brake controller is truly a brake control for the modern age. It plugs into your vehicle and wirelessly connects to your smartphone, allowing you to control and monitor all trailer brake activity right from your own device.

Echo comes with a customizable app for Apple or Android and works with the OneControl system. Control your brakes from the palm of your hand and tow confidently knowing you can adjust and monitor your trailer brakes in real time!

3. Lippert Tire Linc® — Monitor Tire Pressure from Your Smartphone

A tire blowout can be very dangerous when towing a heavy or large trailer and can cause a lack of stability that results in an accident. Low tire pressure can also result in poor fuel economy and premature wear of trailer tires.

For this reason, it's important to monitor your tire pressure, but let’s face it, keeping a constant eye on your tires is nearly impossible while on the road, especially when driving long distances.

Tire Linc allows you to monitor the status of your tires in real time while you’re towing, ensuring your tire pressure is safe when towing long distances on harsh roads, hot pavement or through inclement weather.

Stopping regularly can be difficult to do, especially without a safe space to stop or when towing through the night. Tire Linc allows you to monitor tire pressure while on the go — no more frequent stops or worrying about tire pressure while driving long distances!

4. CURT Rebellion XD Cushion Trailer Hitch with Dual Ball — Adjust Height & Level Your Trailer

When it comes time to tow, having the ability to adjust your hitch is a great way to be prepared for differing trailer and receiver heights. Every truck and trailer can have differing heights and depending on the connection point between the truck and trailer, this can lead to an unlevel connection. An unleveled trailer can lead to poor towing experience, and an uneven weight distribution can cause poor braking and unsafe towing.

The CURT Rebellion XD cushion receiver hitch with dual ball mount provides flexibility and utility for differing applications and load weights, so you can adjust your ball height and make changes on the go and be prepared for varying circumstances.

The dual heavy-duty ball allows you to carry just one attachment and has two options for ball sizes, and the adjustable shank allows for modifications in height for quick and precise trailer leveling. This trailer hitch also features ShockDrop™ technology which has a cushioned isolator that provides dynamic, adaptive suspension dampening at the coupling point to reduce jerking and jarring for a more comfortable towing experience!

5. CURT TruTrack™ — Distribute Weight Evenly & Prevent Trailer Sway

When towing, weight distribution hitches are important for ensuring your trailer is level, which helps to prevent a sagging receiver where the truck and trailer are hitched.

A leveled tow hitch prevents an uneven load and helps to promote a steady, smooth tow. Weight distributing trailer hitches are especially important when towing large, heavy trailers and work to evenly distribute the weight across the coupling point.

CURT TruTrack is one of the most dependable weight distribution hitches available and integrates the sway control function into the design of the receiver hitch, combining precise weight distribution with active sway control to deliver the smoothest, safest ride possible.

TruTrack has two to four points of connection for even weight distribution across all axles of the vehicle-trailer combination. However, instead of using spring bar chains, the TruTrack connects to the trailer frame using heavy-duty, adjustable support brackets that hold the spring bars in place laterally and vertically.

This combination of features paired with its easy setup truly makes the TruTrack unparalleled in its class!

6. CURT QuickPin™ Couplers — Eliminate Guesswork When Latching Your Coupler

Coupling your trailer can be quite a hassle, especially getting the latch to fully close.

When attaching your trailer to your hitch, aligning the ball to the receiver and ensuring it is seated correctly can be a frustrating task, and towing without a fully seated ball can lead to an accident.

That's why the QuickPin trailer coupler doesn't use a latch. In fact, QuickPin is engineered with a revolutionary design to make trailer hookup as simple as possible, removing the chances of an unseated ball when towing.

To couple your trailer with QuickPin, just drop the trailer tongue onto the ball, slide in the pin and that's it! No more wrestling with the latch, trying to get it to snap down onto the ball.

7. Lippert Ground Control® — Level Your Travel Trailer With the Push of a Button

Once you've finally arrived to your long-awaited destination, you may be exhausted. However, this is when the lengthy process of unloading and settling is just beginning.

One of the most inconvenient parts of setting up your camper once you've arrived is getting your trailer level. This must be done before you can settle down, relax and enjoy yourself. It's an important, but tedious process that can be stressful, requiring you to get under your camper and get dirty.

Make way for automatic stabilization!

In less than three minutes, the Ground Control automatic electric leveling system will level your travel trailer with the push of a single button, giving you back all the time and hassle you would have otherwise spent setting up manual jacks and chocks.

When you finally arrive at your long-awaited destination, no more frustrating and time-consuming leveling!

Plus, Ground Control is compatible with Lippert’s OneControl technology, giving you the power to operate your leveling system right from the app on your phone!

8. CURT HD Wheel Chocks — Easily Stow Away Wheel Chocks & Save Interior Space

When traveling with a trailer or camper, a good set of wheel chocks is necessary to park your trailer safely and securely. However, not all wheel chocks are built the same.

Some are made with inferior quality, lightweight materials and get your hands dirty when you use them. Most wheel chocks also take up valuable space — their bulky size can easily be a tripping hazard or a nuisance if inside your truck or trailer.

CURT's all-new heavy-duty wheel chocks are the perfect accessory for saving space and staying safe. These unique wheel chocks mount to the trailer frame and prevent the need to store them inside your truck or RV.

The unique bracket mounts to the trailer frame and includes snap-rings which quickly store your wheel chocks out of the way and outside of your vehicle. No more dirty wheel chocks inside your truck or SUV!

9. CURT CrossWing™ — 5th-Wheel Towing That Makes Hitching-Up Easy & Straightforward

The first step of towing can sometimes be tricky. Aligning the 5th wheel receiver head to the trailer kingpin can be quite a hassle, especially when parked on uneven terrain.

Installing a 5th wheel base can also be difficult, as they can be quite heavy and bulky to move alone. Often the trickiest part of towing is connecting the trailer itself!

The CrossWing 5th wheel trailer hitch is designed to solve these issues and raises the bar on towing to make it a lot easier. Its unique coupling system eliminates guesswork by offering a visible contact surface, and its head channel guides the kingpin into place for easier hookup, saving you time and preventing frustration.

Its self-aligning head allows fore, aft and lateral head articulation when connecting on uneven terrain, and features ShockDrop™ technology that reduces jerking and jarring for an overall smoother tow.

The CrossWing is also 65% lighter with a main body weight of only 60 lbs., making assembly and installation a breeze. With CrossWing, you can install and align your hitch with just one person!

10. CURT Universal Trailer Coupler Lock — Secure Your Trailer Coupler & Deter Theft

After towing and once your trailer is parked, it is important to know that your trailer is safe and secure. One way to ensure this is to use a trailer hitch lock to deter theft.

Sometimes a safety pin and coupler latch are just not enough to keep your toys safe. While CURT safety pins and coupler latches are made to keep your coupler securely latched onto your trailer ball, they are no substitute for the locking power provided by a CURT trailer lock.

CURT trailer locks are designed to add security to your trailer and towing equipment. Instead of merely retaining the coupler latch mechanism, CURT trailer coupler locks are actually designed to protect your trailer from theft when it is not hitched up to your vehicle.

This trailer lock features solid, hardened steel hardware and a ballistic-grade nylon body for a lasting strength and resistance to the elements. The dual-ratcheting locking system easily secures your trailer by inserting into the coupler and taking the place of a trailer ball.

This CURT trailer lock is key-operated and features a universal fit to accommodate a variety of couplers. All CURT trailer locks include two keys in every package. Protect your boat, your camper and even your utility trailer the right way with a CURT coupler lock.
