Pretty much has to do with personal preference. Google it and see all that is available and pick something you like. I just got the RVI Brake for my second Jeep. Use the Ready Brake for the Liberty.

If I remember correctly the C10 is a full size pick-up, may want to look into your GCVW and hitch rating. As mentioned above the ready brake is pretty simple. I use an Acme Dolly with surge brakes but that is more weight added to your PU.

I would recommend the ReadyBrake system from NSA RV Products! It's simple, effective, and low-cost. What else could you ask for!

I personally love my RVi brake system.
Small, easy to set up and adjust, works great.
Whatever you pick travel safe and enjoy the ride.
