Welcome to IRV2.com.

I think you will find equal support for the Brake Buddy and the Blue Ox Apollo portable units. Either will provide braking assistance (not proportional braking, however) in hard stops and both provide break-away protection if you add the wiring for that.

You will likely get more helpful responses if you include information about the RV you have and what you plan to tow. There are many good systems.

We use Roadmaster's Brakemaster. Our Saturn Vue is the third vehicle the one Brakemaster has been in. It performs as advertized and is not hard to connect or disconnect.

Your first decision is portable (ala Brake Buddy style) or fixed. If fixed, there is a further choice of those with removable brake piston (ala Brakemaster) or the "nothing to remove" types (M&G, Air Force One, etc.).

They all seem to work pretty well, so it may be just a matter of preference and your particular needs.

If you want a portable, Brake Buddy is still the gold standard - they've been doing it the longest and have an excellent track record. And their latest model is very convenient to use.

That said, I use a Roadmaster Brakemaster system, mostly because my coach came with the necessary air line already installed, so all I had to add was the car side of the system.

That's my vote also - M&G is the best I have ever used and the most simple and trouble free.
