You mentioned drum brakes. My previous trailer had drum brakes and worked with a 4 pin connector.

After much thought and internal debate I am going with surge w/disks with an electric lockout (5 pin connector).

They disks are only a only few hundred more and are much easier to inspect and clean and should last a lot longer from what I hear.

If your going for the lower maintenance trailer, dont overlook the Torsion axles. Torsion axles get rid of leaf springs & hangers.
I got the tandem, torsion axle, surge/disc trailer, I would never go back to the other types be it fresh water or salt.

Hi Ken - I think the ship has sailed on the axles for this boat but I will consider it for my next trailer (for the sailboat) for sure!

Edit - on Second thought: I'll take a look and see if I can mount them to the trailer without too much modification and crazy cost adders.
