What to take to the dealer to pick up my 1971 Tradewind

I'm purchasing a 1971 Tradewind Twin.

'll be pulling this trailer with a 2004 Tundra with the 4.7L V8 with the towing package. Will I need a weight distributing hitch? What about sway control?

Will the 7pin plug on the trailer plug into the 7pin connector on my Tundra or will I need an adapter or new cable?

Is there anything else I need to take with me to pick up the trailer?

Thanks in advance.

Have the dealer standing by when you hook up, and verify that everything (lights, brakes) works as it should. The 7-pin connector should work fine as-is as long as both are wired to US standards. But if it doesn't, the dealer's service department should be able to make a 7-pin-to-7-pin adaptor in just a few minutes to reassign the pins on the cable to match the output of the tow vehicle.

Does the Tundra's towing package include mudflaps and mirror extensions? If not, you may want them added. Other than that and the proper hitch, I can't think of anything that is critical to towing home for the first time. As for towing on your first camping trip, the list is potentially endless…

I also took triangle reflectors for the truck, a torque wrench, and my tire gauge. Neither the tire pressure nor the torque on the lug nuts were correct.
