Is that enough or should I add the intregrated trailer braking system The unit I have ordered is a 2016 Forest River Sandpiper 355RE with a loaded weight of 15,500.
Add the integrated braking system. You will have to pay for an add on system if you dont. The integrated is better.
Ignore the towing capacity (ideal number of truck with no options and not load) and look to the GCWR. Subtract the GVWR of the truck. The difference would be the ideal GVWR of the trailer. It is a better indicator of the capability of the truck.
