Roadmaster Invisbrake #8700 or Blue Ox Patriot II Supplemental Braking Comparison


Which of the two systems is better? Thank you.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Invisi Brake # RM-8700 and the Blue Ox Patriot II part # BRK2019 are both supplemental brake systems but they are pretty far apart in every other way. The # BRK2016 is a much simpler to install setup that works very well. But you have to install and remove it every time you want to flat tow/drive. For this style though it is the best setup.

The Invisibrake requires a one-time in-depth install that will take some time, but once installed it works great. If this is more like what you'd want though I'd recommend the SMI DUO # SM99251 though as it works just as well but it installs much easier. It's our installers favorite system by far.

Will this braking system work on a Blueox Blackhawk hitch? 72604

I assume you're refering to the Stay-In-Play # SM99251 , but any of the three braking systems Jameson mentioned above will work great with your BlackHawk tow bar. The two components won't have any effect on each other. 59618
