Caravan Brake Controller Guide

Legal Requirements

Braking requirements for trailers in Australia are based on the weights of the trailer - specifically the ATM (Aggregate Trailer Mass). This is the maximum loaded weight of the trailer as specified by the manufacturer and is recorded on the VIN plate (vehicle identification number) attached to the van/trailer.
