Honda Fit for toad

I am buying a Honda Fit to tow 4-down. I was wondering what type of braking system to get for it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. My RV is a 32' Allegro Open Road Fred.
Thanks Dan

Interesting, my Honda dealer told me the FIT could not be towed when I was looking for a toad!

Honda does not do testing on it's vehicles for recreational towing, so not much current info from the factory on this matter. Years ago in 1989 a Honda service bulletin was released stating that all front wheel drive auto trans models were 4 down towable with special procedures. This would not include 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive vehicles. When I worked for Honda I saw a few people that successfully towed Honda Fits with manual trans, but I did not meet anyone towing an automatic Fit. In theory it should be ok as long as the tow'd is run through the gears every 6-8 hours to lubricate the transmission.
