Blue Ox Autostop

Does anyone use a Blue Ox Autostop for towing a toad? I am trying to setup to tow a 4300lb truck behind my Georgetown and the truck already has Blue Ox baseplate and tow bar.
The Autostop is the most economical brake system I can find and, as a former engineer, I cannot justify the cost of the other available systems.

I know it doesn't really address your question, but I tow a 4,200# Jeep using a Blue Ox tow bar and base plate. I use the Roadmaster Invisibrake and love it. Permanently installs under the driver's seat, completely out of view. Works great and you never know it's there. Also, it's about $100 cheaper than the "sit it in the floor" types that you have to find a place to store when they're not in use. Don't know much about Autostop, but I'm a bit put back by a mechanical device trying to do this job rather than an electrical device. Just another engineer's opinion.

We also use the invisibrake, I like that fact that we don't have to do anything with it or find some place to store it, just plug it in at the front of the car and go.
