Replying to:Braking system for an RL28 trailer
Hi Guys. I am trying to work out what to do about the braking system on my RL28 trailer. I know legally we are required to have brakes on all 4 wheels, however I have heard from a couple of RL28 owners who have replaced their brake system with the simple mechanical overide brake system on one axle. Not quite legal but apparnetly it works well. We went through the excercise today with my local trailer guy and we have come up with some revised figures from the previous quote from another trailer place. The cost's now, ball park figures mind you, are:- Replace existing Vacuum/Hydrolic braking system on all 4 wheels with Electric/Hydrolic brakes: $4,500. Change current brake system to a hydrolic overide brake system on 1 axle only: $1,000 Change current braking system to a mechanical overide disc brake on 1 axle: $800 Change entire setup to a tri axle with mechanical overide brakes on 1 axle: $1,200. (This is what I am leaning towards) Change entire setup to a tri axle with electric/hydrolic braking system on all 3 axles: $5,500. (This is what I would prefer!!) Any comments or suggestions?? Garry
