Yes, all hybrids ever made, have electric brakes.
You'll need a brake controller installed to control them.

It's a weight thing. I've had 2 popups and 1 boat trailer without brakes, 1 hybrid and 1 boat trailer with brakes. I don't know what the weight cut off is, maybe 3000 lbs, but anything over that is required by law to have brakes.

Very simple to determine...


Look at the electrical connector. If it is 'flat' it has no brakes. If it is "round", it most likely has brakes. I have a variety of trailers that fit in all 4 categories.


Cat1 - Needs brakes and has brakes.
Cat2 - Doesn't need brakes and has brakes.
Cat3 - Doesn't need brakes and has no brakes.
Cat4 - Needs brakes and doesn't have 'em


Cat4 is always fun to pull...
