Do I need Electric Brakes?
Regulations state that trailers which weigh 750kg GTM* or less AND have a single axle will not require a braking system.
Trailers, horse floats, boat & trailers and caravans, which exceed the 750kg GTM limit legally require having an efficient braking system on at least one axle.
It is also a legal requirement that all caravans, trailers and floats exceeding 2000kg (GTM) are fitted with an efficient braking system on all wheels.
Electric brakes are the most common form of an “efficient braking system” and come standard on most camper trailers and caravans.
|750kg – 2000kg||2001kg – 4500kg|
|Electric Brakes Required?||No Brakes required||Yes – must be fitted with an efficient brake system considered to have brakes operating on the wheels of at least one axle||Yes – must be fitted with an efficient brake system must have brakes operating on all wheels|

Additional rules and regulation may apply depending on which state or territory of Australia you intend to tow in.
