Hi
We are going to fit an electric brake unit to our 90 series prado and just want some opinions/advice as to which one to buy...
We have a 4WD hard floor camper, when the water tank is full with all the gear inside its about 800kg or so, now with the baby and the extra gear for him it may increase! I also want to tow a double horse float at times.
Thanks :)

Hi Emma,

As stated, search the forum archives but just to save you the trouble here's a link to probably the most popular brake controllers.

Cheers

Prodigy P3 is arguably the best unit but if mounting space is tight then the Redarc will do the job.

I recently fitted a Prodigy Primus that works well for my camper trailer that is a similar weight to yours. Middle of the road price wise but performs well.

For the size and weight of your trailer I would recommend the Tekonsha Primus IQ or it's clone the Hayman Reese Guardian IQ, but if you intend to upgrade to a caravan in the future then consider the Tekonasha Prodigy P2 or P3.
