Default best bang for the buck

I have recently purchased a camper that is right at the tow rating for my truck. It is all she really wants for the power i have . I was just wondering what would be the best bang for my buck to increase towing power. Was thinking a programmer do thoese really do as they claim?

best bang would be a CAI, exhaust, tuner, and a towing cam. The cam will be your best gains, but you need the rest to make a difference. A gear swap will also help, but I wouldn't go any more than 4.10s if you're on the highway or you'll kill your fuel mileage even more when towing.
