Yep, my Fiesta weighs just 2600 and change. I've towed over 10K miles with NO toad brake and NO problems.
Been over some mountain passes that might scare the pants off a "flat lander"; like Red Mountain pass between Silverton and Ouray, CO. Ya oughta see the switch backs on that badboy.
Been down (THEN up... It's a pass that is upside down!!) through Salt River Canyon between Show Low and Globe, AZ several times with no problems whatsoever. Once again, hairpin county and switch back city, for a total of about 7 miles; and a total drop of over 1000 feet.
Never even know the toad is back there unless I look at the camera. Far more than enough braking power from the Berk's brakes.
