Hi folks , If you could find a toad like a toyota echo that
weighs approx 2000 lbs --pulled by 28.6 ft class c and
ford super duty v-10--would you really need a braking
buddy system??

Better safe than sorry! Just think, if you rear ended someone in a panic stop and had no braking system!!!! I'd hate like heck to have to try to explain that to a cop

I personally would never tow without some sort of braking system. We used a tow dolly with surge brakes. Worked real well!

Cheers,
Jeff

I almost rearended someone years ago while towing a Jeep Cherokee without a Aux braking system. That experience was enough for me. I've seen guys tow without one, but they are pushing their luck. Most states have a law that requires a braking system when towing certain weights. The weight limit varies from state to state. I'd play it safe...and legal.

I just ordered the ready brake with the breakaway for $510. All mechanical. I have been towing my JEEP without one. I was towing with a Class A but changing to a Class C I will feel safer with a break system.
