Brake System Recommendations

We would like to flat tow our Ford Edge behind our class A gasser.
We do a lot of mountain driving and I use the 'tow haul' function to slow down the rv when descending steep hills, minimizing pressing the brake pedal.
What toad braking system would work best using the tow haul feature?
Ideas welcomed...

For a portable unit the RVi is the best.

I'm with Walt. If you haven't already purchased your tow bar system, I highly recommend the Blue-Ox base plate and the ReadyBrute Elite tow bar that has built in toad braking system.

Being our first motorhome I went with a recommendation made by the person who sold us and installed our Blue Ox Alpha tow bar. We purchased the RVibrake2 system. Only used it a few times but easy to set up and also breakdown when not needed.
