Use a classic Brake Buddy. I can exchange between the two vehicles I have sent up for towing.

I've been looking at Invivibrake. It's pretty compact, and easy to hide in the Toad.

We use invsibrake on our Jeep Liberty and it has served us well. Hook up the tow bar and electrical and we're ready to go. I got tired of the battle with the "classic" brake buddy. The cost installed was only a couple hundred more than a new brake buddy at the Quartzsite RV show

... And it's small enough to fit in just about anything...

I guess we'll find out if that's true!

Heck out the Stay in Play brake. It is an easy permanent installation so it always ready to go and is one of the few truly proportional brake systems.

Roadmaster Invisibrake. Plug it in and go. Oh and turn on the parking lights to charge the toad battery. 😎 Easy peasy

I had the dealer install a dedicated charge line in case I forget to turn on the lights (even though they should be on while doing the safety check).
