I can't say anything about it yet, but after much research I decided on the ReadyBrute to tow my Suzuki XL-7. It is scheduled to arrive in two days so soon I should know if I made a good choice.

I have the ReadyBrute with built in readybrake and have had no problems. I have a 2011 Daybreak, 6in drop bar and a 06 Jeep Wrangler. Have about 3K miles on it so far and everything has been fine. No problems, easy to install. The drop bar and integrated readybrake add about a foot to the Coach to Car length, but its no big deal....

Like Robot9000 I have the ReadyBrute with built in brake and tow an 08 Vue. Has worked fine. Getting the brake adjustment right is a bit tedious but not really a proble. What else have you got to do (retired).

We also have ours installed now. As mentioned it was easy to install and have not had any problems with it yet. It did take a couple of adjustments to get the braking right. At first it was too tight and the brakes were coming on way too easily. A two minute adjustment and all was well.

We also purchased ours through towbarsunlimited.com. The price could not be beat and the service was great.

I went with a used Blue Ox tow bar and then bought a Ready Brake. Works awesome, and I was able to do it at a reasonable price.

I also bought a Readybrute Elite combined towbar / brake. Just waiting for the Blue Ox baseplate to arrive to finally get everything hooked up and underway. I got mine from hitchsource.com, it appears they have towbarsunlimited beat by about $70 on price.
