Brake Systems – Invisibrake, SMI Air Force One & More

Setting up a safe RV tow bar “Toad Dinghy” starts with a quality custom fit tow bar and base plate system from a top manufacturer like Blue Ox, Roadmaster or Demco. But without an RV brake system you’re missing a key safety measure for RV towing with a tow bar set up.

The average tow vehicle adds over 3,000 lbs. to the towing load of your RV tow bar system. To ease the burden on your RV’s brakes you really need a supplemental RV brake system. There are numerous RV brake systems available, but it really boils down to a few main styles:

• Tow vehicle mounted RV brake systems like the Roadmaster Invisibrake 8700 and the SMI Air Force One system
• Portable RV brake systems like Roadmaster Even Brake system and the Blue Ox Patriot BRK2012 (sometimes mistakenly called a Brake Buddy, which technically refers to the Brake Buddy Roadmaster Brake Pro system)
• Hydraulic Assisted brake system like Unified Tow Brake

Two Vehicle Mounted RV Brake Systems

Tow vehicle mounted RV brake systems like the Roadmaster Invisibrake 8700 and SMI Air Force One system do come with a more challenging initial installation process, but once the RV Brake System has been installed it becomes incredibly easy for the end-user to connect and disconnect it for RV Towing.

Once a brake system has been installed, the connection and calibration procedure consists of just plugging the coiled electrical cable into the RV tow vehicle for tail lights and you are done!

Portable RV Brake Systems

Portable RV brake systems have their own advantages, especially for people that have more than one RV tow car or change their RV tow dinghy often. They also won’t add more wires and hoses on your new RV tow vehicle. Look for a portable RV brake system like the Roadmaster Even Brake or Brake Buddy Roadmaster Brake Pro, which offers great RV stopping power while towing a tow bar towed vehicle. Very little initial installation is needed before use. Just plug the brake system into a 12 volt socket on your RV tow car after you’ve positioned it between the seat and the brake pedal. Then push the self-calibration button for safer RV towing. ***Most states and provinces have laws set up for trailers. An RV tow bar connected tow car becomes a trailer when it’s connected. Looking for RV tow car-specific data is hard to find. Be sure to research trailer laws for RV Brake System requirements in the states you plan to visit in your RV that has an RV tow car connected. (Most states require brakes for trailers greater than 3,500 lbs., and some states require brakes on trailers above 1,000 lbs.)
