My front end has been shaking while braking for a few months now. It is especially bad when braking with a camper hooked to the rear and also when I am coming to a stop on an uphill grade. I was told that it probably was warped rotors so I replaced the front rotors and pads. It seemed to help a little bit but it is still shaking when applying the brakes. I don't think it is the rear rotors because it really feels like it is in the front. What are the chances the new rotors are bad?

Actually, the chance of the new rotors being bad is good. Most of the aftermarket parts are made overseas and are cheap for a reason. However, when you said it's worse going up hill, that makes me think there may be a problem with a ball joint or tie rod. Have you had the steering components checked?
