I do like the rvi brake. It is thinner than brake buddy and real easy to install and set up. The rvi company originally made brake buddie. They sold the company and agreed not to make them for 10 years. They are located out of Colorado and are great to deal with. Very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about different vehicles and their products. I donít work for them or have any stock or interest in their company. I would buy from them again.

Thank you. Itís one of the few that is truly proportional in its application and I like that.

New Ranger

I was just reading the OM for the new Ranger before I looked at this so went back and checked. It looks like the 4WD version is easily towable.

I tow a 2011 Honda CR/V. I use a Brake Buddy Stealth. I love that it mounts under the driver seat.

Hi; I'm 1 month old fulltimer. I still don't have a toad but you just mentioned 2 of the 3 vehicles I've been considering. Can you tell me what you needed to tow those vehicles - speak slowly - I'm not too mechanically inclined

Ditto, I really like the RVI. I'm also very happy with the Demco Ex-caliber, but it's a clevis mount, you have to find a base plate mount to match.

Iím on the fence between the RVI and the SMS Stay-IN-Play Duo for my Focus. I like not having another ďapplianceĒ to store and keep from being stolen. But my Focus is 5 years old and if I ever find that perfect Jeep Wrangler Iíll wish I didnít have a permanently installed system in the Focus. Decisions, decisions!
