Comparing Reese Brake-Evn (Draw-Tite I-Command) to Tekonsha Primus IQ Proportional Crontroller


I am in the market for a brake controller, I am going back-and-forth between the Reese break evn proportional brake controller and the tekoshina Primus IQ. They appear very similar in spec. Which will provide superior breaking with superior controllability?

We don't even carry the Reese Brake-Evn controller but it is the same as the Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional # 5535 which is made by the same company. If you have 4 axles with brakes then the I-Command is the route to go but if you have 3 or less axles with brakes then the Primus IQ # TK90160 is a better option. The settings of the Primus IQ are easier to adjust and the customer experience with this brake controller is better and there are a lot more of them in use. The proportional braking by definition should be almost identical but the adjustability of the Primus IQ edges the I-Command (Brake-Evn) out.

I've attached videos of each to assist.
