Last June 2018 my Sunstar 27N suffered hail damage and had 47 holes punched through the roof, breaking through the fiberglass and plywood. My Toad, a 2012 Fiat 500C was also totaled.
I got the motorhome back with a new roof installed last October but waited until now to replace the Fiat. I decided to go with another Fiat 500. I finally settled on a new 2018 Fiat 500 Pop. The good news is, I had saved the Roadmaster baseplate and diode break wiring system. Both were installed in the new Fiat.
Here is a link to a video eTrailer shot a few years ago showing the Fiat 500C having the brake assist installed. https://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-...0-sm99251.aspx
I like the Fiat 500 as a flat tow vehicle because it weighs only 2,366 pounds and can be towed with the standard transmission in neutral and the key out of the ignition. For 2018 they have a dash instrument display that is so very easy to use. Best I have seen with all the standard information displayed but displayed extremely well with both digital and analog displays. Exceptionally well done. They also added fog lights and turbocharged and still held the price at about $16k. Very peppy and fun to drive. It is a great tow vehicle.
The base-plate was a direct bolt on. However, the housing for the driver side fog lights mount had to be trimmed on the inside to make a good fit. From the outside, you can't tell any difference. It took some time and craftsmanship but was done well and looks great. Likewise, the brake lights diode pack hooked up easily and work as expected.
However, I could not find a place to mount the brake assist kit. I have the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System. With the addition of the turbo charge, I can't find a place to install it. eTrailer advises it can be installed anywhere the is room. Well now, that is the problem. There appears to be no additional room for the braking system. If anyone has one installed in a turbo Fiat 500 I would love to know where you put it and a picture would help.
