I think I saw that BlueOx now has a similar option. Roadmaster is built right here in my city of Vancouver.
If I may jump in and give my $0.02 worth on braking/tow bar....
I have a Ready Brake with Blue Ox Alpha tow bar. While I don't have any "real" issues with them, if I had to do it over, I would have gone with the ReadyBrute. I feel no jerking with the Alpha and the Ready Brake, but for simplicity purposes, I wish I had gone the other route. I guess I kind of cheaped out, but hey, I'm a rookie at this.
Also, I have found a decent mod in the brake pedal/Ready Brake configuration. It detaches the cable from the brake pedal arm while NOT in use. PM me if interested.
