Note that many newer car models no longer have a locking steering column.

I think that surge brakes are fine in most circumstances. There are conditions where there could be issues with surge breaks, but unless you spend a lot of time in the mountains it probably won't come up. However, I prefer electric brakes and was glad our used coach had the controller already installed. We actually got the best of both worlds as the PO had initially towed with a dolly and installed the brake controller. Then, he went four down and we also have an aux brake system for the toad if we want to go that way.
