Which brake controller?

Hi! Iíve searched and not seen direct comparisons between the Primus IQ, the P2, and the P3. What I see is the IQ is smaller, and the P3 has words..
We tow a 13í with a minivan. We wonít be towing more/heavier than possibly a 16í in thenfuyture (we have a 3500# limit).

Which of these is the best for us, and why?

P3.

It doesnt need any interpretation.

IMHO

I got a p2 because it was substantially cheaper than the p3 and functions exactly the same way with the same features.Most of the time you dial it in the first time and never really fiddle with it again, so i didn't want to pay extra for a fancy display.

If you look around a bit you can find the P3 for about the same price as the P2.

Either will work fine but the P3 has a couple more features. I went with the P3.

P3 is about $12 more than P2 on Amazon.
You can probably find a better deal than that.
Its worth it (for me) for a clear human-friendly display.

I just installed the a P3 to replace the time delay one that was already installed. Have not had a chance to try it on a real trip yet.

I like my P3.

Keep in mind you will likely change your TV in the future.
