    I work Pressure Washing and in the process of buying my first trailer. Most of the last year has been about buying the right equipment and learning the ins and outs of the trade, understanding that this time, assembling my own trailer, would come. The trailer had always been an afterthought and I only viewed it as a way to get my equipment from A to B…now that I’m ready to purchase, would you recommend getting a trailer with brakes? They aren’t required, from my understanding, in my state, but I’ve been eyeing a 7×12 tandem axle trailer, they say was designed for heavy landscaping…but no brakes.

      Brakes are normally required for trailers with capacity of 3000lbs or more. Requirements like that are an attempt at forcing common sense. Yes, if you’re considering a trailer that big, please include brakes. No need to seek a Darwin award.
