Complete Flat Towing Setup For A 2000 Honda CR-V With A ReadyBrute Tow Bar


I have a friend that has a Ready Brute tow bar that he would like to sell to me for a reasonable price. I am having a difficult time determining what exactly I need to purchase to connect our CR-V to this tow bar including what options are available for wiring the tail , brake and turn signals to work with our coach. Your assistance would be appreciated.

Sure thing!

Along with your ReadyBrute tow bar, you're also going to need a base plate if you don't already have one. If you don't the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # 1528-3 with the adapter # RM-032 will work great for your 2000 Honda CR-V.

Next, you're going to need a braking system. I recommend taking a look at the Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39524. I like this system because it is lightweight, portable, and easy to setup.

Continuing, you're going to need a wiring kit like the Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-152-98146-7 to connect your toad to your RV's tail, brake, and turn signal lights.

Finally, you're going to need a set of safety cables like # C80176 as well as high-low adapter like # C59KR. However, before you commit to a high-low adapter, you'll want to check out the FAQ I've linked to show you exactly what you'll need to measure to confirm.
