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.
Boat Trailer Requirements For Brakes In Australia
- For boat trailers under 750kg no braking system is required
- For boat trailers 750kg-1999kg a simple single axle system is required. This can be either mechanical or hydraulic brakes. Mechanical brakes are the most common on trailer of this GVM rating.
- 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 Hydrastar, iQ7 or Sensa-Brake.
