Different brake system completly. I use a ready-brake in our CR-V, if you look around you can get one for around $1000.00. I have a universal towbar with a roadmaster baseplate. Maybe not the cheapest way, but its safe and effective.

I went with Blue Ox system. I shopped around online and purchased the base plate from BlueOxTowbars.com and the towbar from Ebay. I purchase my BrakeBuddy Classic from PPL Houston, TX. I installed both base plates and wiring myself. The base plate was somewhat challenging, but do-able. Just have the right tools ready to go. I also purchased a full mask cover for the CRV from Coastlinecover.com. Good luck!
