Disk Brakes- I want some!!

May issue of Trailer Life mag has a nice article on upgrading a dual axle TT to electric/hydraulic disk brakes.
Not a bad job for someone who's comfortable with doing their own brake/bearing maintenance.
The advertised increase in stopping power plus anti fade and much easier
bearing maintenance sound really nice.

I want some but can't justify doing this on my brand new rig. Maybe a couple years from now when I'm going thru bearings anyway I might tackle this upgrade.

Like you I can't justify spending that kind of money on a newer unit. When I need to do brakes or bearing replacements that's the time for upgrading.
