Oh no, do all Lil Snoozy's come with surge brakes?

I think that I once read on this site that frames for Lil Snoozy's were built by a boat trailer manufacturer.

Boat Trailer = Surge Brakes??? 90% of the time, I Think because it's not nice to back electric brakes into salt or fresh water maybe?

I got them to install electric brakes on my Hauley, so if you request it, they can get it. The frame mfr actually orders and mounts the axle, and they are the ones that do the brakes. Snoozy just has to specify what they want delivered, then they mount the body onto it.

With the Hauley, I'm constantly changing the weight as I make deliveries (unloading as I go about my route). Surge brakes would have been problematic to adjust under those conditions, I think. That is why I required electric brakes.

Sounds good Mike. Looks like the options are there for those who order new.
