tranny for towing

( part one ) my present transmission is stock, i bought a 30ft 5th wheel travel trailer and now want to build a transmission for towing. max tow weight will be in the 8500 lbs . pump is slightly tweeked.. maybe 200hp. already have a good hughes torque converter installed.
what are the essentials in building a good tranny... besides good clutches and a shift kit, what parts should be " upgraded " and, any good "complete transmission towing kits " out there..

( part two ) any benefits to removing the present water cooled tranny cooler / heater and installing a remote air cooled tansmission fluid cooler with fan.
thanks for any input.
eric
