Just to clarify, because the trailer brake actuator is integrated with the truck, and the truck has ABS(anti-lock brakes), does not mean the trailer also has ABS, however the ABS may control the brake actuator to assist in an ABS event, that still does not mean the trailer brakes have ABS. The hard parts required to do such a thing are not installed on the trailer. (unless of course you have installed an independent ABS system)
I honestly believe that ABS on a RV trailer is a wonderful thing, (the newer commercial trailers with air brakes have them standard now) But the truck alone does not make the trailer have ABS.
Not to be picky, but I am worried that someone maybe confused into believing that buying an F-150 ecoboost with the tow package (which is a nice truck BTW) will make someone's trailer with electric brakes have a perceived safety device that is not there.
