Help w/ TOAD set up

Finally did get a 2009 Honda CRV and would like input for settting it up. Will be pulling w/ 2009 Itasca 35J w/ Ford engine.
Called David at the Hitchsource and he seemed to give me a pretty good package, but just need other advice as I am new to all this.
Roadmaster XL tow bar/brackets $399
Roadmaster Sterling all Terrain tow bar $965
Sterling all terrain Combo kit $182
RViBrake2 $1125
subtotal $2671 w/ free shipping
Discount for total package $181
Grand total $2490
How hard to install tow bar brackets? Read forums and seems Roadmaster easier to install than Blue Ox??
Anyone using RViBrake2?? Like it? Something better.

The total is about what mine cost in 2007 but many have reported being able to do it themselves for half that by finding used equipment and doing the install themselves.

Our search function will lead you to some discussion on this.

You should check Demco Towing Products. I went with Demco and saved several hundred $$$ over the other manufacturers. The quality was the same or maybe a little better, I know the base plate was the easiest install based on the instructions of the three. The RVIBrake2 price is in line with other suppliers

I highly recommend the ReadyBrute Elite towbars with built in ReadyBrake! If I remember correctly I bought this combination for something over $900! That's HUNDREDS of dollars less than the towbars and braking system you're looking at! I also bought their ReadyStop breakaway package and safety cables.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
