Brakemaster for coaches with air brakes

Catalog Item # 18516 Members Only Special

Shorten your stopping distance!

BrakeMaster is Roadmaster's 'direct' proportional braking system. It connects directly to the motorhome’s air or hydraulic brake system for rock-solid, reliable braking — brake line pressure in the motorhome controls the brakes in the towed vehicle. Because it connects directly to what powers your motorhome’s brakes, BrakeMaster is a truly proportional, truly synchronized braking system — however you brake the motorhome, BrakeMaster automatically applies the same pressure. Every time.


  • Connects and disconnects from the towed vehicle in under a minute, without any tools, adjustments or settings — attach the brake pedal clamp, secure to the floor or the seat adaptor, quick-connect the air hose and you’re ready to tow.

  • Weighs just 3.75 pounds and measures 17 inches in length — stores almost anywhere.

  • Works in virtually any motorhome.

  • Works in virtually any towed vehicle with power brakes.

  • Easily disconnects from the brake pedal — from towed car to road car in seconds!

  • Includes a break away emergency braking system.

  • Meets U.S. and Canadian braking requirements .

Shorten your stopping distance.

BrakeMaster applies proportional braking pressure on all four wheels of your towed vehicle. Reduces stopping distance and wear on motorhome brakes. Increase control and safety. Helps prevent overheating on steep downgrades. Air cylinder attaches to towed vehicle's brake pedal. Works with ABS. Includes break away kit.

Will your motorhome and towed vehicle stop safely in an emergency?

The ability to stop quickly is essential for the safe operation of your motorhome and tow vehicle. Workhorse will void your chassis warranty if you tow more than 1,000 pounds without supplemental brakes; Ford stipulates 1,500 pounds. Check with your motor home manufacturer for their towing recommendations.

Are supplemental brakes required in your state or province?

According to the American Automobile Association, most states, plus many Canadian provinces, now require supplemental brakes if the towed weight exceeds 3,000 pounds. If you have questions regarding state, province or local laws, please consult with the appropriate government agency.

A number of vehicles require seat adapter brackets to install the Brakemaster. These brackets are make/model specific, please refer to Roadmaster's Braking System Guide and Seat Adapter Guide. Roadmaster also tries to note in their support material if there are additional components required to ease installation of a braking system or brake light wiring in a vehicle.
