drums to disk

I have a 96 single axel trailer with the drum brakes on, how hard and expensive is it to change to disk brakes??

I give it a 3 (10 being hard) as long as you buy a hand pump brake bleeder.

I can give some tips or instructions if needed. But, once you get your old hubs off the spindle it almost seems too easy.
Replace your brake lines while you are at it... that is if the sheathed tube hasn't already coroded through.

Do a search here type in "trailer brakes" and then think about it......

Why do you want to swap?
