We live in the Western suburbs of Chicago and are looking for a reputable place to have a towing setup put on our 2006 Honda CRV to be pulled by our 2000 Winnebago Class A Motorhome.

We are looking for a good tow bar that will do the job, but not break the bank. We were also told we needed a Break Buddy installed. Wondering if it is really necessary.

We have the Blue Ox base plate and tow bar. We also have the SMI Stay-In-Play braking system. All of this was professionally installed by a Blue Ox dealer. He was listed on the Blue Ox web site for sales, installation, and service. He did nearly the same installation for a friend and he came highly recommended. You won't need a braking system in your toad until you make a quick or emergency stop. Then you will be glad you have it. I think some states require a toad braking system.

I purchased and had mine installed at my local Camping World.
they did and excellent job and I believe they might be having a package sale going on right now. Tow set up plus installation.
Check it out.
My Brake Buddy I did myself.

We also use the Blue Ox tow bar system. As for auxilary brakes, also check your chassis owners manual to see the limits for towing without brakes, some maybe 1500lbs, some 3000, all different. As said before, your state or the ones you are driving through may or may not legally require an auxillary system and brake a way. In reality, our system is very seldom activated under normal braking, but when have to stop suddenly and hard braking, you will be glad it is there.
