Man I thought the same as Ozzy and said to myself this is my sort of thread
But I can answer the brakes question I like overider brakes they are simple and always work, not much to go really wrong with them and are easy to adjust/fix if needed. A friend has electric brakes on his Jayco and he dosen't trust them much I have had a fiddle with them after he drove off with the plug still connected to the car it was a pain
Another friend has a 2 tonne ski boat on a dual axle trailer with disc overider (sp??) brakes on it and we put new hubs and bearings in the other day then adjusted them and they work really well he tows it with a dualcab lux and it dosen't hinder his stopping at all.
