Brake Buddy Vantage Select

Anyone using this braking system? Was close to purchasing the Blue Ox Patriot but rethinking.....BB may be a better product and about 5 pounds lighter.
Setting up Minnie Winnie & Focus. This is the last step. Have tail lights wired & Blue ox hitch. Towing 4 down which requires a battery disconnect switch already installed.
All comments appreciated!!

We chose the BB based on recommendations from a hitch dealer and a couple of RVing friends. We tow four down with a Blue Ox tow bar. We've used the system on four long road trips, and have had no issues.

Had a BB Classic for 5 seasons & a BB Vantage for the past 6. We went to the Vantage for the proportional setting. Not a lick of trouble.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We purchased the BB Vantage select in March this year. I got it on sale new from Amazon. I love the unit, so easy to use and the adjustable breaking feature works really well. It is a great unit and worth every cent in my view.

Me too!! I had the classic that finally broke and BB offered a great trade in on a Vantage select. Love it easy to set up.
