Towing behind RV

I've had my '14 unlimited for a few months. Just bought a 32' fifth wheel to go on the road with my husband for work. I've been researching the components needed to tow behind an rv & it's a little overwhelming... Can I get recommendations from experienced RV'ers on The easiest, cheapest and safest components needed to do this? There will be cross country travel and I'm a little worried about my Jeep getting damaged, so I want good parts, but don't want to spend thousands...

Check out Roadmaster and Blue Ox for tow bar stuff. The brackets for the Jeep will depend on the front bumper. A company call Cooltech makes a wiring harness that makes it really easy for the brake lights & turn signals. Pricy though...
An auxiliary brake system like a Brake Buddy or similiar is a must, but expensive as well.
Check the state laws on towing behind the 5th wheel, as I don't recall seeing such a setup in my 7 1/2 years on the road.
I've towed a TJ about 55,000 miles and my 2013 JKUR about 5,000 miles to this point with no issues. You just need to pay close attention to the details.

Good luck with it.
