Recommendations for flat towing 2015 Equinox

Looking for recommendations on what folks have used successfully in towing Equinox's. Just picked up a 2015 today and the manual states it still supports flat towing. I think I'll be going with the Air Force One braking system so looking more for recommendations on the other equipment needed. Thanks for your input!

I tow a 2012 Equinox, I'm using a Roadmaster Falcon2 towbar (and baseplate). I like the Falcon2 because the cables are inside covers on the brackets, keeps slop to minimum. You'll also (check your manual) have to pull the discreet logic circuit fuse, on mine it is #32, but I made a fused switch for about 6 bucks, or Roadmaster will sell you one for 79 at CW. You may also need a drop reciever to keep in the ‘safe zone‘ of 3 inches above or below of horizontal. I found that I also needed to add a skid wheel to the drop for the steep dips I've incountered. (Cut a tow cable clean on one dip). Hookup and ready to go time for me, (after a few times learning curve) is about 5 minutes. Happy Camping...
