AFO vs M&G braking Systems

I have a 2000 Newmar MADP and I want to pull a 2013 Jeep Wrangler with it. I've settled on a Roadmaster towbar/baseplate. Now I'm trying to decide on a braking system and I've narrowed it down to Air Force One or M&G braking. I like both of these for their simplicity and proportional braking. I understand that the AFO is more portable but that isn't a major issue for me. I am surprised by the cost difference. Based on all other things being equal the price difference makes the M&G much more attractive.

So my question to the forum is which do you like better and why?

Thanks everyone.

Hello jdr; For my $0.02, I prefer the M&G because it attaches after the power brake booster/hydra boost. There is no need for a vacuum pump and no drain on the battery and no need for a charge line from the motorhome. Very easy to connect with just an air line, no additional wiring needed.
