What else do I need?

I am picking up my 21 soon and have the fastway e2 hitch ... what else do I need?

The tow vehicle a 2018 Silverado 1500 with trailering package, 7 pin in the bumper, brake controller in the dash. So far I have added nothing to 2 inch receiver at the bumper. It's just as it was when it left the lot.

What else do I need to get so I can show up and get my trailer hooked up?

I know this is a complete newbie question but that's what I am. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If ETI is supplying the WDH hitch then nothing. They will install the brackets on the frame etc. and make sure that it is leveling your tow vehicle.

Nah.... Sounds like you are golden. I got the E2 hitch from Escape last year, its a good piece of kit. E2 makes a few accessories for it. Neither needed but both nice.

I don't need a specific sized ball hitch? or something else? Just show up with nothing added?

Also, thanks for the previous replies.

Nope, they will install everything while you are getting "oriented". Have fun and don't hurry back.

Don't know if the E2 comes with a hitch pin, so you should bring one with you. You'll probably want to upgrade it to a locking one anyway.

I have a similar Equal-i-zer hitch and it's very nice. Enjoy!
