braking system for Winnebago View

Thanks for the recommendations on the RVI2 braking system. I have researched it and it looks like it would be very user friendly.
I have seen ads for a used RoadMaster Pro Portable Brake System and also a RoadMaster Even Brake system which I can purchase either one for half the price of a new RVI2 system.
How would people rate these two RoadMaster systems? Would there be anything to look out for when purchasing a used braking system?

Looking for an easy to set up, yet safest (of course) braking system for our towed vehicle.

Any suggestions?

Doug, I highly recommend the NSA ReadyBrake! It's simple, easy to install, and probably lower cost than anything else out there!

I just installed the SMI Stay-in-play Duo in my Honda Element and am super pleased with how easily it went in and how un-obstrusive it is. Just connect the bar and wiring, flip a switch and it goes! Took about 4 hours of installation in the element mainly as I was careful with the wiring routing and also added in a 12v battery maintainer as well as running the LED back to the coach dash for brake actuation.

Doug,

You might want to check and see if your Winnebago is pre-wired from the factory for the US Gear Unified Tow Break system. Monaco, and I believe Winnebago were pre-wired for this system. I purchased my 2007 Diplomat new and have had the UTB system installed since new and it has never let me down.
