There have been reviews from time to time, but no side-by-side, A-B study that I've seen. Back in the July 2003 issue of Family Motor Coaching Magazine they chronicled about twenty different models. The good point about this article is that the contacts were listed for each of the makers. It wouldn't surprise me that a newer article can be found in their archives. I would suggest you obtain that article and contact each manufacturer that interests you. Ask each of them for four or five references whom you can contact to get their impressions. My advice in all instances of subjective analysis like this is to clearly write out your requirements for the task at hand. Weigh all factors such as cost, availability, service after the sale, etc. Maybe even make a few phone calls to the manufacturers and have each explain why they consider theirs the best on the market. Have them sell you on their product. Carefully analyze your results, sleep on it a day or two, and then make an informed decision. Do let me know your thoughts after you decide. I welcome all comments, good and not-so-good about all aftermarket products.
