Default M380 Dinghy Brake System Question?

I am setting up my M380 to tow a Jeep TJ. I picked up a Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain tow bar and baseplate.
I am trying to figure out the easiest yet good and reliable brake system. I have not had a dinghy before so any advice would be welcome.

My vote is for the M&G braking system.
Easy to use,simple and they work.

Recommend M&G:





with optional break-away accumulator:





This is installed on my 2004 Chevy K3500 4WD XCab. Coach to toad connections are only the brake air line and break-away tether. Nothing is used inside the cab or on the brake pedal.

Default M & G Engineering brake system

Most happy with the M & G Engineering braking system. Give them a call and arrange a 'factory install'.

Its an M&G world!


Leon,the owner of M&G invented the tow brake,long ago.
He still works every day at the plant and hes 90 something years old.
I super guy,we have tipped a few adult beverages together back in the day.


If you call,mention my name,you will not get a discount but its always good to hear from an old friend!

Wow! That is quite a turn out for M & G.

I found a used Even Brake on CL to use for a trip we are leaving on next week but I am going to get a M & G for the long term.

I replied in the Facebook WOG page also.


But M&G here too. Had it installed at the shop near Athens TX. I think his son did the install.


It's funny on the FB page there was more of a mix of suggestions.
