YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

Proven Performance

Brake Buddy® systems have logged over a billion miles of towing and braking experience since its inception in 1996.

Keeps You Safe and Legal

Towing laws vary in every state and province in North America. The use of a Brake Buddy® system will satisfy all four wheels down braking requirements. Also, each system is equipped with a break-away system that brings your towed vehicle to a controlled stop if it ever detaches from your motorhome.

Prevents Excessive Brake and Tow Bar Wear

Each Brake Buddy® system will remove the entire towed vehicle weight off the motor home’s brakes and tow bar and will not void your chassis warranty.

Legendary Service

We provide premium consumer and dealer support before, during and after the sale through a dedicated team of support specialists.

Industry’s Best Warranty

We maintain rigorous quality control measures ensuring peak product performance. Each Brake Buddy® system comes with a 5-year, 30-day money back guarantee.
