I recommend you look at the ReadyBrake it comes as a brake apparatus only or you can buy a hitch with it built in.

Good luck.

Although I probably wouldn't buy another Brake Buddy, it does seem fairly easy to install and set up.

Most of the 'brake-in-a-box' systems are pretty easy to install. Depending on the model, they may have a box which connects to the brake switch to signal the unit into the coach that the brake system is working. Road Master Even Brake is an example. Some of the models are easier to install, but still require you to wire in a break-away switch if the toad becomes disconnected from the coach.

I pull a '10 Acadia that weighs in at 4600 lbs plus and it works very well for me. When you hook up you simply snap one cable in place and you are ready to go.

Good luck.
