I would suggest this one. It is air activated which is very
important for quick activation in a panic stop. I did not need
portability, so I went with SMI Stay in Play Duo, but I
have researched this one and was very impressed.

I have had the RVI2 system for a year and a half, towing about 15,000 miles and have been very pleased with it. It works great and is very easy setup. As a bonus, their customer service is outstanding.

Braking systems

Brake Buddy.
Over 15 years, the last 5 fulltime.
Flawless and portable and never needed to call their fine CS helpline.

X2. Going on 3 years with ours. No problems at all. Simple 60 second set up and 20 seconds to remove it. Small, light and works.

We went with the Brake Buddy Vantage Select. I really like the proportional braking feature and use it. Works really well. Also easy to setup and use. I purchased mine from Amazon back in March this year.

BrakeBuddy Vantage Select | BrakeBuddy - Braking systems for motorhomes towing a vehicle

If you search UTube there are a number of videos demonstrating the brake.

Good luck with your choice

I'd recommend the RVI brake also. They are coming out with the RVI3 this fall that you may want to consider. Go to their website and read all about it. You can use rvi3.com
