Why BrakeBuddy®

It’s better to be safe...


The brakes on your motorhome were designed to stop the coach and its contents, but not the added weight of a towed vehicle. This is why states and provinces in North America have passed laws requiring auxiliary brakes for towed vehicles.

The added weight of the towed vehicle will significantly lengthen your stopping distance, which increases the chance of an accident. This extra weight can also cause your motorhome's brakes to overheat, causing brake failure.

BrakeBuddy’s technology provides the right braking force when you need it, along with advanced terrain sensing capabilities. When the motorhome brakes are applied, the BrakeBuddy senses vehicle deceleration and applies the brakes of the dinghy, taking the entire weight of the dinghy vehicle off of the motorhome.

The BrakeBuddy Breakaway System protects your investment and others on the roadway. In the event your towed vehicle separates from the motorhome, the breakaway system will apply the brakes of the towed vehicle, bringing it to a controlled stop. This prevents potential harm to others on the roadway as well as damage to your investment. Most states and provinces require a breakaway system when towing a vehicle.

BrakeBuddy reduces your overall stopping distance and enhances your safety with smooth, controlled stops. Our systems meet and exceed all towing laws, but the real value comes from the safety it gives you.
