I recently had an SMI Air Force One system installed in my coach and Kia towed vehicle. This was done at the FMCA Rally in Redmond, OR. in mid August of this year. I felt that this would be money well spent after having the experience of using one model of the several "portable" units that attach to the brake pedal that are currently on the market.
This turned a "nervous/anxious" driver that was generally unable to enjoy the drive, to one who has no concern about the system functioning properly and that also actually brakes as one would expect from such a device.
The cost for this Air Force One system is a small price to pay for one's piece of mind.
The team of Pete and his son doing the installation was an added bonus. I had heard Pete make a presentation at the Newmar pre-rally in Salem, OR. and thank goodness for that experience that led me to this great auxillary braking system.

Jim:

Welcome to IRV2.

I also had the AFOne installed on my rig at the IRV2.com rally in Branson by Pete's son. The install was done very professionally and I am more than pleased with the result. I was able to sell my Blue Ox Apollo to the RV'r in the site next to me the day after the install of the AFOne.
