Does anyone have experience using the ReadyBrut Elite Tow bar with Intergrated surge brake and would you recommend it. I have a Black Hawk 2 & Evenbrake system, but like the idea of the built in surge brake. New brackets will have to be purchased ether way. Changed toads, thanks for all input. gps

I just put a ReadyBrute Elite on my Class C, but have yet to tow with it. The research I did on this forum and online convinced me that was the right system for me. So far it has been easy to install on my Smart Car and connecting the car to the moho is easy for me to do alone. I have a trip planned for the 13th and will know more afterwards.

I'm using a Ready Brake, which is the same surge type system you're asking about, but with Blue Ox tow bar setup. It's about as simple as it gets, and works without fault. Highly recommend it to anyone.
