We bought the Patriot last year when we picked up our Dodge Dakota. We bought it new on E bay for 60% list price. We like it --easy to set up and when we did an emergency stop the toad left skid marks on the road so we know it works great. The motorhome monitor on the dash lets you know its working, we've had no problem with brakes not releasing.
For multiple toads you will need a breakaway switch in each vehicle because it is permanently mounted and tethered to the motorhome hitch. We also got the Blue Ox Adventa tow bar, the one that folds and mounts on the toad, so I can tow the toad with my other vehicle if necessary.
