Here is our Toad. It is a 2016 Kia Soul Manual Transmission. We went with Roadmaster Invisibrake, Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate, Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, Roadmaster 68" Single Hook Saftey Cable, Roadmaster Diode 7-wire to 6-wire Flexo-coil Wire Kit and Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit. Had it installed, total at $2919.24...our Christmas Present to ourselves.

Have gone on four trips since install, tows great with our Vegas. Last trip was over 400 miles and we got 8.75mpg (down from 9.15mpg without toad). Speed kept to 65mph as a max.

2012 CR-V towed behind a 2018 Chateau 31E. Did a 5500 mile trip this summer with this rig.

Blue Ox baseplate
Blue Ox Alpha tow bar
Blue Ox 7 to 6 pin cable
Blue Ox Patriot II brake system
Blue Ox bulb and socket tail light kit
Hopkins towed vehicle battery maintainer
Protect-A-Tow rock guard

Installed it all myself. Parts cost $2400. Nearly half of that was the brake system ($1091).
