Smile Towing package

I am about ready to purchase a 2004 Saturn Vue for a toad. My choice for
tow equipment is Ready Brute 8000# tow bar, Ready Brake braking system,
and Blue Ox base plate and Blue Ox lighting system. Any pro's or cons about
this plan. Like to hear comments. I am all new to this appreciate any help.

I have a 2005 Saturn Vue and I just ordered the ReadyBrake system to attach to my existing Demco tow bar. I've been using the Brake Buddy but found it awkward at best and every once in awhile it would turn off probably because the toad battery would draw down.
Just be advised, I love the Saturn, but the whole front end assembly is plastic and styrofoam. Make sure your installer securely mounts the baseplate to solid surfaces. Mine didn't, the car broke free at a very slow speed, with no damage to others, but the installing shop was responsible for major body repair to make everything look new again. (They accepted full responsibility).
I've been researching the Ready Brake system for a month now, and I think it will be a good choice.
Happy Trails.
