Thanks in advance for your feedback!
Kind of an apples and oranges comparison.
Installation and usage both vary greatly.
1. BO is a standalone system that requires removal an placement for use.
- Also requires battery power. Braking is "controlled" by the BO system.
2. AF1 is installed once and remains in vehicle. No battery power except if a breakaway occurs. Braking is proportional to brakes on coach. Harder you press the coach brakes the harder the braking on your toad.
I have an AF1 installed on the Suburban and M&G installed on the Jeep. M&G is similar to the AF1 except the toad install has an air cylinder placed between master cylinder and brake pedal actuator under the hood on toad. Both systems work great.
