Towing with our 2016 33C

I created a different reply post since this may be in the wrong thread, but any insight or direction is appreciated. We have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee that we would like to tow behind our 2016 Bounder 33C. It fits within the 5000pd limit.
I have a Roadmaster all-terrain that I tow my old Jeep CJ7 with and can get the mounting plate for my Grand, so I think I am good there.

My question is, should I use a remote braking system like the brake buddy, or rely on the Bounders brakes since it is within the 500pd limit? I think yes, but looking for experience?

I tow a Nissan Xterra (similar weight) behind a Southwind 32V. No issues but yes an auxiliary brake system is highly recommended and required by law in many states.

better have a aux. brake system if your in a wreck - without it you'll be at fault from the beginning. Dave
