First check to see if the liberty can be towed. I know the newer ones cannot be. Look at an owners manual it will tell you if it can be or not.
The previous poster had a good list. I will just make advisements on that.
I have a blue ox ten thousand pound tow bar. I like it
I have an RVi2 brake system. I like it if you are going to have a removable brake other wise go with one of the permanent mounted braking systems.
Lights are a bit different for me. I bought a new 2012 buick enclave and did not want to get into the whole hooking up lights into the computerized wiring system. ( Which by the way worked out well. I had some warranty brake problems and the first thing they asked was if the wiring from my coach to the brake lights was connected in any way with the vehicle wiring ) The enclave has a receiver type tow hitch. I took a piece of 2 inch square tubing and drilled a hole for the pin to lock it in the reciever hitch. I took a piece of 1 inch square tubing and welded that to the end of the 2 inch. Then I took a piece of 4 inch flat stock and welded that on each end of the 1 inch tubing ( I am not putting in lengths because each vehicle is different) I bought a pair of LCD trailer lights and mounted them to the flat stock. I wired a 6 connector plug and hooked it up to the mounting plate for it on my tow bar based plates. I then ran the other end of the wiring under the car to the reciever hitch. put a 4 pin plug on the reciever hitch and wired the LCD trailer lights to another plug. I now have lights that are seperate from the car wiring system. Work off of the coach. Look good and can be taken off if I do not want them there Whole thing was around 50.00.
The previous poster was right though. A lot of money
