Is your trailer equipped with brakes?
I'm just wondering if they came stock with brakes.

Also, do you know the overall height of the trailer?

Thanks

The trailer definitely has brakes. Old brakes. Very old. If the weather holds, they'll be much newer by the end of the week.

I'll try to remember to check the height when I get home from work. Late, that will be.

Yes it does have electric brakes however they are not connected. I suspect they locked up on someone in the past and were cut. I do plan to get them working next spring however because of the weights of the trailer and my truck I don't actually need them. I would say the trailer is overall about 7 feet as I have to step up into it and I can stand straight up inside. I am 6 foot tall

The 1992 that I just sold recently had a Maxair vent cover over the vent and it just brushed the weather seal on an 8' door in the open position. My garage has a door front and back so I could store the trailer in the back yard. Most residential garage doors here are only 7' so I had to use oversized doors. Now my new trailer is too tall even without the Maxair covers. These covers work well because you can leave a vent open and not worry about rain getting in.

Height at the highest point of the shell = 85 1/4". Then add a couple inches for the vent, which I couldn't measure because of the TurboMaxx fan.
