New Member - Long Time RVer

We are considering towing a vehicle for the first time. Would like comments on different towing systems: e.g. stay-in-play vs. ready brake. Look forward to hearing from your experience

It would be more helpful to you for you to post whether you have an air brake or hydraulic brake coach.

Welcome to the forum!

Glad you found us.

You'll get a wide range of opinions on this. The important thing is that you use a brake system for the toad. There are many good ones out there. We use a Brake Buddy Classic which I think is just about the most basic system available but it works "ok".

Good luck...

Rick

Welcome to the site. We use an Even Brake system and have been happy with it. Fairly quick and easy to set up as I suppose all of the various brands of systems are. We tow a Jeep Wrangler 4 down. We used a car dolly with a previous vehicle and didn't care for that at all.

Welcome BornFree,
As KIX said, it would be helpful your question if you let us know what rig you're driving and what you intend to pull.
