Default Re: Pennsylvania boat trailer inspection

........................ My 2008 dual axle with one brake is more than enough for a 3K boat. Atleast in any other state in the US it is
Not in Florida. Florida and some other states require brakes on all axles of a trailer. Just like on a car or truck. And from someone who added brakes to his second axle, I can tell you it makes a noticeable difference in braking power. Now that I think about it, twice the power!

I've driven in PA. Not towing a trailer, but driven a car throught the mountains several times. They have some tough roads and steep grades, often ending in a "T" intersection in a town. It's a bad place to find that you don't have adequate stopping power.
