When it comes to towing your boat trailer there is nothing as important as your safety; having the appropriate braking system fitted to your boat trailer is vital. When buying a boat trailer you must consider not just the weight of the boat you are putting on it but also all the fuel, motor and gear you are loading into the boat. It is this combined total weight that determines what boat trailer and braking system you require.
For boat trailers under 750kg no braking system is required
For boat trailers 750kg-2000kg a simple single axle system is required. This can be either mechanical or hydraulic brakes.
For boat trailers 2000kg and over a braking system on all wheels is required and also a brake away device or a hydraulic system such as a Hydrstar unit or Sensa-Brake.
