Trailer Stopping Distance

I just ran across this test and thought I would pass it on. It is very difficult to convey the difference that disc brakes make. Except to those who already have them.

1st test was no trailer and the truck empty.
2nd & 3rd test used a 16,000 lb. trailer, using electric brakes.
Canadian Standards Tests show the Titan Disc Brake System stopping a 15,500 lb. trailer in 179 ft. using trailer brakes only. No truck brakes were used in this test.

This 179 ft. is a 100 ft. shorter stopping distance than this test shows using truck and trailer electric brakes!

I know several people who have disc brakes on their fifth wheels but they were not after market. Do you have these on your rig?

I am not a Titan employee any longer. I retired in 2013 from Titan Tire to full time RV. They asked me to represent them at various RV Shows and rallies around the country. Since then I have done Disc Brake Seminars at "The Rally", "Escapade", Airstream International Rally and many local shows and rallies.
Yes, I sell Titan Disc Brakes systems as well as Kodiak.
And yes, I do have them on my 5th wheel.
