Help Pick a Brake system.

This is a 2012 Sunseeker 3120ds towing a 2011 Jeep Wrangler unlimited.



I would like to get the proís and conís from the group to help me make a choice on what brake controller to go with. I have it narrowed down to 3 units.

US Gear Unified Tow Brake UTB cost $1,363
Proís
1. different features
2. stays in the Toad
3. control from the motor home
4. true progressive/proportional
5. uses the Toadís power brakes
Conís
1. Hard to install?
2. No dealer help if I have install issues

Roadmaster Invisi Brake $900
Proís
1. Stays in Toad
2. Bypasses the 12 volt and charges the Toad batt
3. Progressive braking?

Conís
1. No adjustment from the motor home
2. activates when the brake lights on the motor home comes on.

Brake buddy Vantage Select $1,500
Proís
1. easy to install
2. setting can be changed from the motor home
3. proportional or full braking
4. installed and backed by a dealer I trust
Conís
1. you have a braking system on the floor of the Toad
2. you have to hook it up and break it down each time

Best choice by far.. was not hard to hook up but did take some time.. but true plug and play once done and stops the coach faster then it stops without the Toad...
Any questions I'll be happy to answer.
