I recently bought a car trailer. It is a 16 FT with a two foot beaver tail 7600 LB trailer. I have a 08 Dodge mega cab single wheel with the cummins. I need to get a brake controller for it and I'm wondreing which kind I should get. I have never had a trailer with brakes before. I dont use the trailer much but with the 6.5 FT bed on my pickup it is almost worthless for hauling anything so that is the main reason I bought trailer. Plus it will be nice for hauling wounded stranded or orphaned jeeps. Any sugestions???


Thanx T.

In my years of towing I've had 4 vehicles with brake controllers. I only have the experience in using the Tekonsha brand. Out or the four, I actually went on one of the vehicles with the fancy one that levels itself, all you have to adjust is the power going to the brake. :roll: It had a few other features but now it's sitting on my shelf because I sold the RV and now have a pickup who came with the Voyager which is the same I have on another vehicle and was too lazy to swap. If you are looking for something to do the job go go with the Voyager from Tekonsha. This company has never let me down in any of the two models. :scratch:

Btw, if you have not purchased one yet and you are interested in the better model I might be willing to let it go... for a price that is. :grin:

I might be interested. What model do you have and how much do you want for it?

Thanx T.

Not sure what I want for it but it's the Tekonsha Prodigy.

I really like this one and might swap it out for the Voyager since I already have two Voyagers.

I suggest to sell the trailer is you are not using it and buy something that is worth for you.
