Here's a link to some previous threads here. I've always heard good things. I have the SMI Stay N Play ( the gas coach version ) . As for installers , you can call SMI for one of their dealers.

I have the Stay in Play Duo on my 40 DP.
It is simple to use, and works well. No problems. I installed it
myself, medium difficulty. It comes with great directions.

We have had Air Force One for 3 yrs. 25K miles. Reliable; no problems , simple to hook up; need only to snap a single hose into place. We had Schaeffer RV in Pa.install Tom Schaeffer's RV - PA RV Dealers - Starcraft RV, Carriage RV, Cruiser RV, EverGreen RV, Forest River RV, Keystone RV, SunnyBrook, Winnebago RV, Newmar RV, and More . We purchased the Airforce One and Blue Ox tow bar at the Hershey RV show form Schaeffers and we very satisfied with their service and instruction for how to hook up to our Jeep.

Safe travels and THE JOY IS IN THE RIDE

Just picked up my motorhome from my local dealer Cusson Auto in south windsor ct
and I just love the Air Force one it works perfect

The shop did a very nice job installing it
They had to build a bracket in front of the drive axel
What a nice product .
I have used this dealer before for repairs and was quite happy and them.
Found out they were a dealer for Air Force one it made me feel more comfortable
If you need any repairs done to any type of motorhome in the Connecticut area they are very honest and dependable
Thay are authorized spartan , Cummins & onan. Dealers the service managers name is Mark you won't be disappointed

I am a huge fan of my Air Force One breaking system. Nothing to install just pop the hose in and go.

I highly recommend it over any other system. SO much simpler than setting up a box in the floor board.
