Customer doesn't have a trailer brake controller

We just got a booking and the renter says his truck doesn't have a Trailer Brake Controller. My trailer weighs 3500 loaded. Do they have to have a TBC?

Hey @gutierrezc8709,
I'm certainly no expert on this topic, but I'd be sure to check your state laws around this as a good indicator. I believe that many require a TBC right around 3000-3500.

A good rule of thumb is whether the vehicle TOWED outweighs the TOW VEHICLE. If so, you should have brakes on the TOWED vehicle also. And, if your camper supports tow brakes and you want them used, you can tell the renter they need that capability. I've lost a few renters this way, but so far the camper keeps coming home safe.
