auxiliary braking system

I have fourwinds siesta with ford 450 engine and I tow a 1999 toyota celica. The toyota has been fitted with a transmission pump so that it can be towed with four wheels down. At the moment, I tow the car as is, but our trips are getting longer and longer and possibly into Canada. So far, I had no problem stopping but I think I am pushing my luck. Now I am looking for an auxiliary braking system. Not the installed kind because we do not know how long we will have the car. Any advise of model and/or make would be greatly appreciated.

Ken

In my situation I have three toads that I use on different ocasions. Explorer Sport. Chevy 1/2 ton, or sandrail. I chose the Brake Buddy so I could transfer from one to the other and avoid the expense of buying three seperate units. Each toad is a different weight so I have to reset for each toad. It only takes a few minutes to install and adjust. There may be other systems available that I am not aware of. Brake Buddy has served my purpose for 15 years so I consider it very reliable.
