    Hello,
    I need to prepare my Highlander for towing at 2003 Coleman Laramie. Could anybody give me the specs for what I need as far as the hitch ball and electrical plug should be? Thank you!

    The ball is most likely going to be a 2 inch ball. Check you pup's manual to verify that though. The same with the electrical connector.

    Most likely a 7 pin trailer connector.

    A 2" hitch ball is readily available from HomeDepot or Lowes. But there are more things to consider than a hitch ball, such 7-pin wiring, electric brake and the controller. Check your pup to see if the electric brake has been installed. Look behind the wheel with a mirror for the brake plate like this:

    You might also want to consider a Weight Distribution Hitch.
    You can learn all these from eTrailer (link below) just by keyword search from their site.

    Ask this forum which brake controller is the best to get.
    Get the parts and have a local dealer to install for you if you cannot do it yourself
