I don't see how this applies to the OPs question about towing a 1995 Geo Tracker. Wait....Are you saying a car with steerable front wheels count as swivel wheels? Boy, that seems a stretch. I consider a 'swivel wheel device' as something fastened to a vehicle's back bumper with no left/right motion and the swivel wheels on the tail end supporting it. Not at all like a car being towed. Plus, if it had enough weight, I'd still consider it's need for supplementary brakes - legal definitions be d--ned, I'd have them!

If that is rationale to NOT have brakes on a toad, please NEVER follow me on the highway.

Adventure Net has the Ready Brake receiver for $329 ReadyBrake Receiver Style Towed Vehicle Supplemental Brake System.. it doesn't get much better than that. Shipping id about $27.

Ready Brake is a lot of bang for the buck and plenty for your little Tracker.

Thanks for the heads up! Being on the road makes it a bit hard for delivery, but I'm liking the sound of this system! How difficult is installation?
