Question Disc Brakes for Trailer

Looking for competitive pricing on disc brake conversion for our trailer. We have a Dorsey tandum trailer which currently has drum brakes and would like to convert to disc. Need a good source for good pricing. Any ideas guys????

I saw them on West Marine's website awhile back when I was thinking about doing discs. Can't remember exactly, but I think it would have come out to be about $250-$300 per axle.

Nice website and good prices. I just bought 2 replacement disc brake assemblies on Saturday.

I usually deal with Country Boy Trailers over in Cumming, not the best prices but they usually have every thing I need in stock. There used to be a Northern Tools on 41 just south of the north loop. Hope this helps.

One of the major players in disc brakes are "Tie Down Engineering". Thats what i have on my trailer-all ss hardware. After 2 years of saltwater use, i just did a tear down and replaced the pads and regreased the bearings. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL WITH BREAKING LOOSE THE HARDWARE!!! I helped another buddy out with his and he did not have ss hardware, and needless to say he broke half of the bolts and just went out and bought all new ss hardware. IMHO, disc brakes w/ss hardware is the way to go-no doubt!

Tie Down Engineering (800) 241- 1806

Happy towin'
