Why use power brakes?
A lot of emphasis is put on braking systems for A-frames by people using them, by European legislators, and by the installers themselves. Rightly so, since most towcars weigh around 1000kg. The extra load inevitably means that your stopping distance is going to be increased (surveys suggest as much as 58% greater without assisted braking at 50mph).
Your towing vehicle’s brakes are designed to stop its weight, within a given legislated performance parameter that is deemed safe.
Our Roadmaster Invisibrake progressive power braking system will slow the towcar from behind the motorhome whenever it is needed. This means there is little or no force on the towbar or A-frame, no violent jerking of the components or destabilising of the tow vehicle. Overall, it dramatically reduces your braking distance (surveys suggest just 4% greater at 50mph).
Invisibrake meets all European trailer braking legislation. It is compact and can be hidden out of sight. The progressive braking means when you apply continuous braking force, so does the Invisibrake – the longer you brake in the motorhome, the harder your towed vehicle will brake (it will not skid your towcar tyres).
