tow brakes systems using coach air brakes

M+G, Unified, and Air Force One are mentioned quite often in previous posts..which one would you use, or use, and why?

I use the M&G with my Wrangler. When I had the base plate added to the Jeep I told them I didn't want one of the brake boxes that go on the floor with an arm that pushes on the brake peddle. They recommended the M&G as the best choice, and probably the most expensive, but they told me they have been installing them for years. I decided to go with what they were familiar with...and I can say it has never given me any trouble.

I tow a 10,000lb truck with the M&G. It has been almost two years and I never think of the system. Hook up the air line and you are done. I would never use anything else again.

We have used M&G for almost 10 years and would not recommend anything else. We tow an 8,000+ pound vehicle and we had to make a couple of short trips without our braking system when we moved to a new vehicle. What a difference! I will never be without some kind of supplemental braking again and unless something really new and different comes along I won't be without my M&G.

Redlands Truck and RV in Redlands CA. Not the cheapest, but I have heard good things about them.

Mbissin Thanks for the response but like Clubmed we are also on the east coast. Clubmed,Why did you choose to go with M-G? I read the SMI Airforceone manual and also got the Video by asking at SMI .All things look like the install could be easy. I just hate cutting into the airlines of the coach.
