Towing Brake

Hi, in the process of installing Roadmaster Base Plate on my 2013 Smart. Leaning towards the Roadmaster Invisibrake system for braking. Has anyone installed this system?

I'm presently not using a brake system, but I have had the NSA breakaway cable installed. The car is 1900lbs and a braking system is required in only a few states.Last month I traveled from Memphis to Branson over the Ozarks on old Rt 4, no problem. I'm using a Blue Ox system including the road guard. If and when I decide to get a breaking system it will be the NSA motion brake, cheaper and require no electrics.

Toymaker 17, do you have any photos of how you installed the NSA system? I am going to install the NSA system this spring but do not plan on installing a braking system. My 2014 Smart is being flat towed behind my MH.

I had it installed. There's a how to video on NSA's site and instructions come with the kit. It's a good idea to install a battery disconnect switch. The car tows like a dream. If I didn't have the camera on I won't even know it was there
