Brake Systems


Trailer brakesĀ are required on all wheels of a trailer if the trailer has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of more than 2990lbs (1400KG). In some cases, trailers with a GVWR as low as 1,000 lbs. may be required to have brakes if the trailer weight exceeds 50% of the tow vehicles weight. Brakes are required on ALL ends of each axle.
