Hi Rsanchez24,
To answer your question, which place has the best warranty on their work? Is it important to you to be able to have warranty service customer paid service all over the USA? I can not comment on the Falcon models. I use Blue Ox.

So the Camping World setup doesn't include a supplemental brake? I'd definitely go with the hitch shop.

Camping world would be the one then since they are located all over. The other company is just a local shop.

I like doing business with the smaller shops, easy to deal with most of the time and stand behind their work most of the time. I also have Blue OX

Personally I'd install my own, and I have, but I use RoadMaster products. They were located about 20 miles away, then they moved and are about 15 miles away now.

I don't trust myself that much yet. Especially when it comes to pulling $30,000.00 of brand new toad I just bought, I can just see it go rolling past me when I stop. Lol

That can happen with whoever installs the equipment.
