In this video, Ian from Monoway Trailers talks about the SE Brake Control Unit from Trail Parts. When our tiny house is complete, it’s expected to weigh close to 3.5 metric tonnes.

Most importantly, because the unit is radio controlled (and doesn’t need to be hard-wired into the towing vehicle like other units) we are able to use different towing vehicles at different times. After all, those who are downsizing their house often don’t want to upsize their cars! Read more
