Congrats IPull & Happy Camper on your new on rigs! Hope can get ours ordered by the end of March. If you guys don't mind me asking, Did any of you order the disk brakes option? I priced mine out with it but am having second thoughts about them. I think that if Im sitting for a few months or even a month that it could be more of a hassle then what they would be worth.

We did not get the disc brakes. I have never had them on a RV so not sure if they would be worth it or not.

We ordered ours with the disk brake system, for extra safety.

I ordered mine with the disk brakes and the G rated tires. I'm still considering the extra heavy axles for $1200. I don't have my trailer yet so I can't tell you how well they work. From the research I've done it looks like they stop about 50% quicker, won't fade as quick going down hills and are quiet. Like you though, I've never had them on a trailer although you can't get a car without them.

If I have to wait 3 months, it's not going to be pretty! I'm already more excited than a 13 year old boy getting his first piece of_______

That was why the auto indust. went to front disk and then to four wheel disk brake. because of the shorter stopping distance, quicker brake recovery, better coolingand less brake fad.

It would have to come with heavier gear to handle the weight. Myabe I'm silly but with all the $ I'm already spending I'm not going to let $1150 stand in the way of making this a long term trailer.
