Most caravan hire places also hire or provide FOC portable electric brake controllers and these work fine. I've used them personally. Most usually hire towing mirrors as well.

Here's a pic of the Brown Davis seal kit fitted. Works well, just need to make sure you use the small left over bits to seal top & bottom in between the inner and outer seal. You can clearly see the top bit in photo, bottom is a bit harder to see but it is there.

Antman,

Wow! Does sound top end. I think the bar retails for around the $500 mark. I was told fitting is tricky due to the fact the radar needs to be moved. My tech pack works fine and it looks great. Maybe shop around - where are you located?
