We have decide to trade in the Odysee on a CRV so will be able to tow it flad. the dealer is installing the Blue Ox hitch and a hitch on the back also..the dealer said we can tow it flat if we go by the directions in the user manual..Honda says 2007's are ok to tow and the 2008 is identical mechanically.now to decide on a brake system that is easy for it..

The CRV is an easy tow, Mel. Good choice.

All the tow brakes are pretty simple to use, but the easiest are permanently installed and simply require you to plug in the connection to the coach. The SMI Air Force One is an example, and the M&G brake and Unified Tow Brake are some others.

We use a Roadmaster Brakemaster, which does require a simple attach to the brake pedal. My wife does that by herself, so it can't be too hard.

Unified Tow Brake is another option. I have one on a 2008 CR-V and really like it. I moved it from a 2006 Jeep Wrangler and towed many miles with no problems and great braking.

We have a 2007 CRV. The CRV is a great choice for a toad. We use the Roadmaster Brakemaster braking system. Easy to hook up and works great. Also instead of using diodes in the brake light circuit I added an additional light bulb in the brake light housing using the parts I got from Blue Ox....
