Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring

Question:

I bought a 2017 Nissan Pacifica Touring L (*edit* actually Chrysler Pacifica see below)and I need to add ability to tow a small cargo trailer to the vehicle. I would like to add the towing package/items that will allow the vehicle to tow the maximum allowable weight it can. What items or package of towing items should I buy? Can you please send me a link/s? Do the items come with installation instructions for me to give to the installing shop?

I can't find any info on a 2017 Nissan Pacifica. Is that a sub model of a different vehicle possibly?

Sorry. I meant to say Chrysler Pacifica Touring L (not Nissan Pacifica), which is a minivan.

The highest capacity trailer hitch we offer for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring is the Draw Tite hitch part # 76046 which is a confirmed fit and has capacities of 4,500 lb total trailer weight and 675 lbs tongue weight.

Then for trailer wiring you'd want the Tekonsha kit part # 118712 which is also a confirmed fit. I attached an install video for both of these for you to check out as well.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
