My toy hauler has surge brakes and I've read numerous articles about surge bakes vs. electric brakes but wanted to get your opinions because I'm giving some consideration to switching them over.
The toy hauler weighs approx 8000lbs loaded up. That's approx 5700lb unladen weight and approx 1500lb of ATV's in it.
I've taken the trailer through the mountains of West Virginia with my friends truck and had no issues but hadn't considered the "surge" brake vs. "electric" aspect with regard to failure, etc.
Also I've been doing a lot of research on weight distribution and see that only one company (Equal-I-Zer) offers a weight distribution hitch for surge brakes. Can someone speak about using the weight distribution in my type of scenario?
Thanks in advance!
