    Verify exactly what brake components Triton is providing on that trailer before You dive in.

    For example; My WC4 came equipped with some nice Kodiak calipers and rotors, but they are only 8" and on one axle only... they were never up to the job- still aren't.

    My Shorland'r double has bigger 10" rotors on it's single axle... nice- but the components are UFP and imo, junk. The surge actuator is UFP also, and that too is junk.

    The material itself dictates a big cost difference... take a look at the price difference in calipers and rotors (steel, coated steel, aluminum, stainless, etc).

    If I knew then what I know now, and had the option... I would have done as K447 stated and added my own brake components after buying the trailer without brakes. It would have saved me money in the long run.

    If I can, I will buy stainless steel disc brake rotors. The less things on the trailer than can even think about rusting, the better.

    Calipers too... If You can swing the $$, or at least aluminum. Kodiak offers a Dacromet coating on many of it's components...

    Point is, if they are offering me junk or undersized brake components on my next trailer... I'm going to pass, take the money I save, and buy good stuff.
