Braking System for Jeep Wrangler Toad?

We are pulling a 94 Jeep Wrangler behind a Class A Motorhome. Any feedback on a reliable braking system for the jeep?

I'm using a brake buddy and it works for me.

There are others that are just as good, and I'm sure you'll get plentty of suggestions.

If you have air brakes M&G is my favorite.

I use an EvenBrake in mine, but I needed something that I can switch between toweds to keep the cost down. I also like that I can monitor the battery voltage and know when the brakes are applied and released.

Using a Brake Buddy for years, works very well. Although don't like having to put it in and out. Have a ReadyBrake waiting for me to get around to installing it. If you are buying tow bar as well, suggest to check out the ReadyBrute system with the brake included. Works well and good bang for the buck.

I've been using the add a brake by roadmaster, but after seeing the surge brake by NSA Products I think if I ever get another toad I'd give NSA a try. Dave

I use the RVI 2 brake system. Very light, easy quick set up.

If you have air brakes---air Force 1 is very good. We use it on our Tracker toad--easy, quick and works!

I also use ready brute. I didn't like the BB box I had that needed to be installed and removed before and after each trip. Ready brute is easy to connect/disconnect and can be used with other vehicles if you install the brake cable in the other vehicles which I have done.

X2 on the RVI2 brake system. I tow a Jeep Wrangler and it is a very quick and easy setup. It's probably the lightest and smallest of the portable brake systems and the remote display is a great feature.
