The subject came up about if trailer brakes were required (as opposed to just a good idea
Something was stuck in my mind that Washington required a brake-away device but I couldn't remember if trailer brakes per say were required for travel trailers. I found this list that might be useful for those out seeing the good 'ol USA:
If I read it right North Dakota is the most restrictive requiring brakes on everything. Idaho's at 1500# and a few others at 2000#. Most States set the limit at 3000# but there are a few that don't have a requirement (1). Surpised me that Oregon was one but then again they allow semis to pull triple trailers
(1) n/a might mean information "not available" as oppsed to "not applicable"
