In our case, we had the TST TPMS system before we bought a toad, so our choice was pretty easy. I have heard of a couple cases where the remote display has lost contact with the Rvi Brake unit in the toad. It seems to be an intermitent problem, but if that happens, would you not also lose your TPMS sensors as well? Since the Rvi Brake doesn't need the remote display in order to function, it would be a non issue for us.
I know what you mean about multiple monitors. Between the backup monitor, the GPS, the Rvi Brake, and the TST TPMS monitor, it does get a little crowded on the dash.
Also, since I don't use the Rvi TPMS system, I do not know how they are displayed on the monitor. On the TST system, I see the 6 wheels of the coach, and the 4 wheels in the coach, at a glance.
Also the TST monitor has an internal battery. When charged, it will last all day without being plugged in. That gets rid of one of the power cords while driving. I also don't know if there is a limit to the number of sensors you can monitor through the Rvi Brake.
