    We have a Perodua Kelisa as our toad with an unbraked 'A' frame.

    But we use a 'Brake Buddy' like this one.

    cool

    good gadget but would doule the cost of the nippa , same old problem as all braked a frames , no engine running , no servo , crap brakes on tow car , but makes it legal and helps on big cars , all the a frame companys were fitting unbraked up to a year ago on small cars

    unbraked aframes have been illegal for years except for recovery . intertrade have been making braked aframes back in the 90,s could even be earlier. i use one but did have a recovery garage and still insist i,m on recovery . i think aframes are very usefull but changed my way of travelling to a 5er much safer and does the job better than a car behind a big camper. i understand all the fors and against but abig camper or truck with a car on a frame or even a small trailer is not a good idea. i also drive big artics and dragtrailers and steerable drags so i do know what i,m saying. get a 5er makes more sense. cheers alan.
