Take the burden off your motorhome's brakes and reduce your motorhome and towed vehicle’s stopping distance up to 50 percent.
BrakeBuddy now gives you setup safety cues to make sure it's ready to stop when you are. Easy-to-see LCD digital display makes it easy to fine tune precise settings. Easy to install and completely self-contained, BrakeBuddy senses vehicle deceleration and provides the right braking force when you need it. Advanced terrain sensing prevents false braking. If your towed vehicle becomes accidentally disconnected from your RV, BrakeBuddy's Break-Away System applies the towed car’s brakes, bringing it to a controlled stop. Installs in just minutes with no connection to the RV and no permanent installation required, so it can be easily transferred among vehicles. Clevis attaches easily and firmly to towed vehicle's brake pedal. Compact size fits all vehicles, with easy-set handle that lets you adjust unit for best fit. Weighs only 11 lbs. Included wireless alert system lets you monitor braking action from the driver's seat.

An easy to install and use braking system

I bought the BrakeBuddy Classic a year ago, and use it to tow our Chevy Tracker behind our Class A motorhome. It works perfectly and as described. On a couple of occasions, when we were in a real hurry to get on the road, I didn't install it, and I definitely could tell the difference in stopping the motorhome. The Camping World soft-side zippered carrying case helps protect the unit and keep it clean in the back of the Tracker when not in use.

I purchased the Brakebuddy to use in a 2005 Honda CRV. It seems to work as described and is simple to hookup. The breakaway box is easy for anyone with just basic skills to install. As far as the brakebuddy it takes only about 3-5 minutes to put in place. Convenience is the key here, and if you decide to use another vehicle it is easier than having a built in system.
