Recommendations for a brake controller

We have Ford F250 with a factory brake controller. All the information I have read (and heard) is that the factory brake controller won't activate Airstream brakes (we have a 2008 Classic). Looking for recommendations on what brake controller to install. Thanks to all that reply.

What is your source of information?


Our 2010 F250 ITBC works flawlessly on our 2006 30 foot Classic with Dexter E/H disc brakes.

I looked around Ford's website today, the trailer brake specs they mention for their build in controllers match those of an Airstream. There is no reason why your factory controller should not work.
