M&G Braking Systems

Has anybody used the M&G Braking Systems on their toad. On paper it looks very easy to use. Looking for people who have it and their opinions. It looks less expensive than others, I wonder if it as good. I have nothing yet on my CRV.

I had the M&G braking system installed on my Jeep Wrangler last year. It is incredibly easy to hook up-- just one coiled air line with quick disconnects at both ends. After 17,000 miles of towing, the system has performed well, and I've had no problems with it.
This is the only braking system I've ever owned, so I cannot comment on how it performs compared to others. As far as I know, the only downside is that the system is vehicle specific. So, if you change toads, you may have to buy another system. However, I believe M&G has a "trade-in program" that helps one recoup some of the cost.

I've had my M&G Brake System installed on my truck (toad) for 6 years and close to 30K miles. I love the ease of use and the proportional properties it offers. I purchased a new truck and installed the old system on my new toad after checking with M&G it was compatible. Hooks up in 5 seconds and only one moving part and no electronics to go south.

I had the M&G on a Jeep Liberty and now have one on a Tahoe. Performs very well and simple hookup. Would for sure use them again.

I have been using an M&G brake system for over ten years and I personally think it is one of the best and easiest to use. I have now used it on three vehicles I have owned. Unfortunately it does not fit on every vehicle.

We have it installed and I love it. As has been stated above, you just hook up the air line, hold your foot on the coach service brake for 1 minute to charge the small break-away reservoir tank on your CRV and away you go. Nothing to calibrate or adjust.
