Can't help you except to suggest doing a search on RV.NET in the dingy towing area. I remember some folks were towing Mini's, but haven't checked recently.

Good luck.

We tow a 2005 MCS four down using a Blue Ox set up. Campingworld/Crystal Valley RV installed the mount. It looks pretty neat. I do have pictures if you'd like to see them. I have added an auxiliary brake yet. Still looking at several that look like they'd work. We don't have a lot of miles towing it but have had no problem with the Blue Ox.

We tow our 03S Mini "Pearl" Six speed four down using a Blue Ox tow bar. I added a six inch drop hitch because I did not like the front of the car being as low as it was from the original hitch. I have not yet added a brake because of the low weight of the Mini. I may look into using the Even Brake that we used pulling the Suburban but I have to get the Mini wired to use it. We have no problems pulling the Mini. The sign in the back of the towed Mini stating "I'm pushing as hard as I can" brings a lot of smiles and waves.
