Take a look at the M&G Air Brake. This System looks like it was made for our Coaches. The Ready Brake appears to be somewhat complicated to install and use properly because of the Cable Linkage.
I saw the M&G System while we were at a Resort in Parker, AZ. The System looked straight forward and easy to connect.

I'm trying to talk a friend of mine into buying a Newell. He has a Renagade toterhome now to pull his 35 ft stacker. He said it weighs around 30000lbs. Would a Newell tow that or more specifically what engine wouls you need in a Newell?
If he needs to pull a 30,000 lb 35' trailer, I am not sure that a Newell or any other motorcoach/bus chassis is the best solution. First, Newell has one of the highest towing capacity of any motorcoach/bus but it is 20,000 lbs rather than 30,000. Secondly, a 45' Newell with a 35' trailer (plus hitch length) is an illegal overall length in virtually all states.
A truck type toter-home may well be his only choice if he REALLY needs that much length and weight carrying capacity.
With a Newell, depending on the model year, he would also be 80-90,000 lb gross combined weight.
After some 35,000 uneventful & brake-less miles over a six year period, I added the Air Force 1 brake system to our new toad. Several reasons: (1) This past winter on I-15 south of Las Vegas a friend's Lexus SUV snapped it's receiver pin and the car, tow-bar & all, passed their coach on the right, then crossed in front of them, then crossed the opposing two lanes before coming to rest in the desert. BTW: It snapped the 5,000# safety cables; (2) it's the law and none of us want's trouble with law enforcement on the road OR in court after a loose toad hits someone; (3) I've had to drive on ice & snow more than once & while told by several 18 wheel truckers that my toad would never jackknife, why wouldn't it? Yes, got a new Blue Ox 10,000# tow bar AND 10,000# safety cables too.
