After much reading of forums and talking with other folks, I guess I've reached the conclusion that our toad will be as follows:
- Honda '07 - '11 CRV EX-L
- BlueOx Aventa™ LX towbar
- M&G brake system
- The TOAD-CHARGE™
I'm searching local sources for an EX-L that meets the DM's color specs now but I'm really
going to hate giving up my Lexus RX-330
I haven't seen any posts that comment specifically about the compatibility (fit) of the M&G system into the CRV engine compartment. Does anyone have experience with this configuration who cares to comment about "problem areas" or "gotchas".
Also, I'm still "on the fence" regarding the best approach for the toad running/brake/signal lite system (tie in to the CRV electrical system and use blocking diodes or run separate wiring and install separate lites in the CRV rear light housings [either incadescent or LED]). Any strong arguments either way would be appreciated.
