Is a Supplemental Braking System Required when Flat Towing a Vehicle Behind a Motor Home


Is braking system necessary? And why?


Expert Reply:

Supplemental braking systems are required by law in most states (with the exception of Missouri). In addition to being required by law, a braking system is just a good idea in general. It prevents all the braking being done by the towing vehicle which will reduce the wear and tear on it. Also stopping distances will be shorter because you will not have the toad momentum pushing you through an intersection.

I have included a link to our FAQ article on supplemental braking systems that should be very helpful to you.
