Toad brakes

I just traded for a new tow vehicle, the old Vue weighed only 3200, I usually did not hook the brake up unless I was in the mountains. The new car weighs over 4000 pounds so I decided I needed a new brake system. I wanted one of the systems that hooked up to the cars system but I was told there was not enough room under the hood for the installation, I would prefer not to have to install something every time I hook up. The old brake was a Road Master Brake Buddy, good brake but like some of the others sometimes a challenge to get ready to roll. My question is concerning the new or new to me the Invisi Brake by Roadmaster, anyone got one or maybe an opinion.

Consider a Unified Tow Brake. I am tired of pyaling around with my Brake Buddy so I got one of these and am preparing to install it (re reading the manual numerous times first).
hope that helps.

I just installed a Readybrake. It was an easy installation and all you have to do to hook it up is clip a cable onto the front of the car and you can get a brand new one for less than $400.

Unified Brake is great. I've had one for 4 years. Just xfered it to a new Toad. A no-brainer to hook up, just plug in the power cable and go. It took longer to write this msg than it does to hook up the brakes. And by the way, it uses the power brakes on your Toad. No pushing on a dead brake pedal.

If the Knight has air brakes, consider the SMI Air Force One. We have been very happy with it and all there is to hook up is an air hose.
