    Braked boat trailers

    PLETHORA thanks for that info i have a 4.5 quintrex c/c and the trailer is a tinka it has to get inspected every year and is just under the weight of having to have brakes rego is very expensive for it. will take to get it weighed after i get the boat off and onto the grass.the trailer is 50x50 square frame full rocker roller tilt trailer.it also has a big old hydroylic brake tow hitch i might change to get weight down has mini wheels as well
