The Maxbrake could also be mounted at the rear of the bus.  The only thing you couldn't do is manually actuate the trailer brakes from the driver's seat.  With a bus you're probably not going to have issues with the trailer getting out of control.

I did look into air brakes when I replaced the brakes on my trailer.  Dexter only supplies air brakes on 10K and up axles.  I don't know that air brakes would really work with a bus anyhow.  Our brake systems aren't designed to supply air to an additional two axles.  I would have severely limited myself on vehicles that could tow the trailer if air brakes were even an option.
