Tow bar with brake assist

I have a fleetwood revolution and just purchased a jeep wrangler for my tow vehicle. Any words of wisdom on what tow bar And brake assist package I should purchase?

when I towed my Jeep Wrangler I used the Blue Ox system. Bad thing was I never installed brakes. Call me stupid but I never felt like a braking system would do all that much. Heck I didn't even know it was back there.

Now I am towing a Ford Escape Hybrid and that is a different story. Just got back from a 2,000 mile trip and I will be putting brakes on that baby. Pulling a hill or trying to slow down, I knew there was something attached to me.
