Air Force One Braking System

I purchased a Class A that has the Air Force One system on the coach side. Does anyone have the car side system available? Where's the best place to purchase from?

Do a Google search for Air Force One, Second Car Kit. You will get quite a few hits to choose from.

If you are referring to air to the rear for air-powered toad braking, you can also use an M&G Engineering system which I find preferable for a variety of reasons.

I have had good results with e-trailer:

This is the AF-1 second car kit:

It’s a great product. I have not had any issue with availability at our location and we install multiple per week.
Thanks

I've been using the AF1 for about 12 years or so. I've installed it three times on three different coaches and six times on six different cars. I like that you can move the car side system from car to car with little effort.

With that said, the system requires that you cut into the brake booster vacuum line on the toad. In years past that line has typically been rubber and easy to add a "T" for the AF1. A lot of the newer cars are now using plastic tubing. If you do your own install of what they call a second car kit, see if they have a "T" setup for your particular vehicle. On my Ford Raptor, they had a secondary way of tapping into the brake booster that was very clean.
