What type of brakes are recommended?

There are a number of good brake systems available. If your trailer ATM is over 750kg you will require braking to comply with legal requirements.

Electric drum brakes, for example, are reasonably priced and work well with in-cab controllers. They’re easy to fit, low maintenance and you can get spares just about anywhere. Disc brakes are popular with over-run couplings. In all cases, make sure you comply to the VSB – a copy of which is supplied with the plans.
