need help w/ brfake control

hello, i'm new to rving and need ad vice in choosing a trailer brake control. my vehicle is an '04 ranger 4x4 ext cab w/ 4l motor. one of the dealers i'm working with has advised me to hookup to a trailer of similar weight as i am considering and see how it pulls. to do this i have to have the trailer brake control installed and their unit which sells for 87 bucks and takes 3 hrs to install will cost between 300-400 installed. next door at rv world they sell a brake control for 187 bucks b ut the service mgr said that was overkill and his unit was more than adequate. now i'm suspicious. what do you look for in a trailer brake controller and what brands are good. i only like to buy once so i'm not opposed to a few xtra b ucks initially if i'm getting quality. thanx, rick
