Back on the Cheap Jeep Trailer. This time we wire up the trailer brakes. Something that should have been done long ago. Also, we move from a 4 pin to a 7 pin connector. I have built trailers without brakes and trailers with. Would you run trailer brakes on your offroad trailer? Why or why not? Here is my take. The weight of the trailer should be a consideration whether the trailer needs brakes or not, but offroad changes this decision. For me, I think all offroad/expedition trailers should have brakes. The reason being, outside of the obvious safety factor, is that while offroad having brakes on the trailer allows for a much higher degree of control. Thoughts? Here is the video of me working on the Cheap Jeep Trailer.
