Hard to say without driving the Rebel first. One thing that I am considering is a light bar on the roof.

Electric brake controller

On trailers that are equipped with electrical brakes they can be adjusted to have them activated when you press your brake pedal. You can control how much force that is applied to them using a slider control in the rebel. For trailers get in hilly areas they give better stopping power and Hensley me re control over stopping. It's about a $400 item f ok mopar. The controlled has 2 wiring harnesses to connect inside the dashboard, installation should be done by dealer to maintain the warranty. I'm just saving my buttons to save my 34' 2015 wild wood camper

Now that is definitely not what I was thinking it was.

But I can see how that can be extremely useful and make operation much safer. Thanks for the info !

@Chris ..... I know this is a terribly old thread but I'm new here and found your post saying you installed a train horn.
Can you provide any details about what you installed, how difficult/easy it was and where you purchased it?

I absolutely hate the horn on this Rebel. Press the horn and it does not immediately respond, drives me nuts.
