Recommended Supplemental Braking for Flat Towing a 2008 Honda Fit


I have a 2008 Honda Fit Manual toad being towed by a 2011 Four Winds 28BK. I am trying to figure out which breaking system for the Fit. I will most likely be installing it myself. Looking for recommendations. Thanks.

I suggest the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System, # RM-8700 for your 2008 Honda Fit. The Invisibrake is a great option because it is a one-time install so you will not have to continually attach and detach it. The cable pulley tugs on the brake pedal gently, gradually and with a balanced pressure when brakes are applied in motorhome. This is a permanent installation, nothing to remove or disconnect when you arrive at your destination. The actuator box mounts out of the way, typically beneath the driver's seat and we have an installation video created of this product being installed on a 2013 model year Honda Fit. I have linked it below.

If you do not already have the other needed items required for flat towing your 2008 Honda Fit, I suggest the following:

- Base Plate Kit: Demco Classic Base Plate Kit # DM9517215
- Tow Bar: Demco Excali-Bar III Non-Binding Tow Bar # DM9511013
- Wiring Kit: Magnetic Tow Lights # RM-2120
