Perhaps a search of previous threads would show some of the information offered by others. My husband drives conservatively and carefully and always assumes the trailer is going to try to kill us! That is, of course, if one of the other crazy drivers out there don't do so first!
The ONLY way to tow our eggs is conservatively! I worry the same way, but truthfully, it's the idiots and morons on the highways you have to watch for, particularly as we're hauling trailers other people may find fascinating and lean in towards us. We must always be vigilant.
Hydraulic brakes are designed for boat trailers. Lil Snoozy
uses them because they buy boat trailers for their chassis. They still work fine, and relieve the tow vehicle from having to have a 7 pin connector. Electric brakes are better for travel trailers, but given the weight
of our eggs, I don't think it is really not a big deal. We almost went the Lil Snoozy way, and I trust the company to know what's best. I was VERY impressed with their response to our inquiries.
