Boat Trailer Brakes: A New Zealander’s Guide

Purchasing a boat brings along the consideration of its transportation. In New Zealand, law mandates trailers carrying boats over 2000kg to be equipped with brakes, and over 2500kg, with a breakaway system.

It's wise to check your vehicle’s handbook to confirm its towing capacity for the boat/motor/trailer package.

At The Trailer Shop, we offer a variety of mechanical brakes and brake parts to ensure a safe towing experience.
