Physics of towed vehicles...

You either think you need a supplemental braking system or you don't.

I think many folks that don't believe a supplemental brake system is necessary feel the safety aspect is overrated especially when cost of set up is concerned... tempered with the knowledge that they know their vehicle's towing ratings etc.

Though I don't agree with such thinking, there is logic behind it, and a good discussion about the need for supplemtal brakes can be found over at
